Dear Expectant Mother,
We can’t express how grateful we are that you’re reading our profile nor can we write anything that adequately describes how brave we know you are. We’re honored that you’re considering our family. We don’t know exactly how you’re feeling reading this but, please know, we already pray for you and baby every day.
We’ve always wanted to adopt and after trying to conceive a biological child, we felt set on this path. We’d like you to know that your baby will be loved unconditionally and supported as they grow into their own unique self. Our family is loving, warm, and hilarious (if we can humbly say so!). We refer to our family as our “pack” because we have a golden retriever and three cats who are ready to add a little brother or sister to our loving home. We value education, hard work, and open communication in our family, even if we need to talk about hard things.
Our family makes time for each other and for the activities we value such as time with friends, church, reading, spending time in Colorado’s beautiful settings, and watching sports. We prioritize keeping a clean home and having family dinners at the table as many nights a week as possible.
If you were to honor us by choosing our family, you can count on your baby being loved beyond words. We feel strongly that children need to be allowed to develop without feeling controlled, by being empowered as we teach them what they need to know based on how old they are, and that children need to be supported as they unfold, showing us who they are in the world. We’re excited to support them in their passions and interests as they grow be that music, sports, academics or anything else.
We are privileged, fortunate, and thankful to have the life we do, allowing us to live in an extremely nice neighborhood full of gorgeous parks, playgrounds, and several top-rated schools. We also are blessed to have wonderful, fulfilling careers that allow us flexibility and time to be home with kids and to model what fulfilling, meaningful work looks like. Brady works as an Associate Director at a marketing agency and Janean owns and runs a clinic she operates as a psychologist. Our family values compassion, open communication, and supports one another in all our pursuits.
We identify as Christian and attend a progressive, LGBTQ+ affirming church. We believe no one can be separated from God’s love and that all of His children are perfect as is. Our family deeply resonates with Micah 6:8 that shares what the Lord requires of us “to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with God.” At our best, we hope we live up to this and we try to do better when we know we fall short.
Our family is full of laughter, as we usually crack each other up to the point of losing our breath multiple times per week. We’re each other’s best friend and are looking forward to adding a new person to our bunch. We want to provide your child with a great education, a loving home, and fun experiences like vacations, sporting events, and dinners with our friends and family.
We’ve waited for several years to have a baby and, though the wait has been difficult, we know and trust that God will bring the exact right child into our lives. If that happens to be the baby you’re placing with us, we can never do enough to express our gratitude and marvel at your strength in doing so. But, we can assure you that your baby will have a happy life in a fun, compassionate family who couldn’t be more excited or honored to be their parents. We’re so thankful you’re considering us and want you to feel loved and honored as you read this.
Brady & Janean
