Warm greetings from Colorado! We can’t thank you enough for taking the time to read about our story and we hope to connect with you! We can’t imagine all of the emotions you are experiencing, but we want you to know we are here to listen and be there for you through this extremely difficult decision. We truly want to get to know you for so many reasons, the biggest being so we can speak of you often to your child. We want to share your traditions and favorite things with your child and we feel that knowing you is the best way we can do that. We will always be eternally grateful to you and want you to know you will always be honored and respected in our home.
Your child would be so loved and encouraged to pursue their dreams. We will support your child’s interests and work to incorporate your culture and traditions into our daily lives. Life isn’t all sunshine and roses and we will work through difficult times together by having good communication and trust in our relationship. We are two positive and warm people whose hearts are totally open. Should we be lucky enough to connect with you, we can’t wait to get to know you and your child.
We have always wanted to be parents and our life plan always included adoption. We first attempted pregnancy naturally and then through fertility treatments involving IVF. Our path has led us to adoption and that is the only path we are committed to pursuing. We are in a stable relationship and financial position where we are fortunate enough to work towards our dream of expanding our family.
We live in Colorado and your child will have a life surrounded with love and support from us, our family, and close friends. We are Aunt and Uncle to 9 nieces and nephews with ages ranging from 3 to 17 that all live in Colorado. Dana’s side of the family lives in Illinois, Washington, and Massachusetts and we see them multiple times a year – oftentimes with Mickey’s side of the family joining in. We are an extremely close family that plays games, hikes, and regularly takes selfies with the selfie stick (we are on selfie stick number 15 because the others broke or were confiscated at concerts). Both sides of our families are extremely excited about our adoption journey and totally committed to supporting us and your child with whatever is needed.
A few random things about us, just in case you were wondering: our favorite blizzard flavors are: Dana: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Mickey: Oreo. Favorite Fast Food: Dana: McDonald’s and Mickey: In N Out. Our Uber ratings are: Dana: 4.96 and Mickey: 4.93 – we both really like to talk to the drivers and hear their life stories! We both work in commercial insurance and are fortunate to have flexible schedules and can work from home a majority of the time.
Thank you again, from the bottom of our hearts. We would be honored to connect with you and get to know you and your child.
Dana & Mickey
