It all starts with you. Although we haven’t met, we’ve been thinking about and praying for you for a long time. Adoption is such a gift. A gift of love, a gift of strength, a gift of self. We want you to know how amazing we think you are. The sacrifices you are making are seen and noticed, and we are just in awe of you. We recognize the choices you’re considering may be full of emotional and physical challenges, but we pledge our support to be there for you. We hope the information we’ve shared is helpful in making a decision that feels right for you and your baby.
While dating, we discussed our desire to use adoption to grow our family, even before we knew the struggles it would take for us to have biological children. We were blessed with our little boy three years after trying to conceive a child. Adoption has played a large role in our extended families, and we have seen the love and joy that can come from adoption. We feel strongly that another child is waiting to join our family soon, through adoption. Thank you for considering adoption as a possibility for your child.
We love our life and are so excited to welcome another member to our family! We know Keaton will be an incredible big brother and probably smother his new sibling with all the love and affection he has to share. And in turn we hope your child will have a chance to smother additional siblings down the road, adopted and biological. The matching Christmas jammies, Easter egg throwing contests and fall pumpkin patch snapshots of their life will be filled with family, laughter and fun.
One of our greatest desires is to offer the world to our children. We want to help them learn and understand hard work, love, and true and lasting happiness. We will teach them to have strong moral values and great personal character. We certainly aren’t perfect parents, but it is a job we love more than almost anything else. We will happily attend every soccer game and dance recital, watch Baby Shark ten trillion times and support your child in every possible way we know how, because we love it. And we love our family.
If you choose us, we promise an eternity of love and support for your child. We are grateful to you for taking the time to consider us and wish you all the best. We hope everything in your life works out for the better and again are so inspired by your gift of adoption to this child.
