First and foremost, we want to tell you that you are the most important person in your baby’s life story, as you are the one who gave your baby life. You are an incredibly strong woman who is making decisions as to what is best for the future of your child, and we hope to be the family to provide the future that you desire for them. We have nothing but respect and love in our hearts for you as you have taken a path that may not be the easiest in order to do what you believe is the best for your baby. We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking time to consider us as an adoptive family for your baby. We can't begin to imagine how difficult and challenging this time in your life is. The path you have chosen truly takes a selfless individual who is full of love and courage. We would love and take care of your child and provide them with a safe and loving home and family. We are open to having a relationship with you within your level of comfort. We could share pictures, give updates, or even have visits if that is what you would desire, as we want to respect and honor your wishes. Your child would grow up in a home knowing how much their Birth Mother loves them and how much respect and love we have in our hearts for you.
We are so excited to welcome your baby into our life. Our home is in a family-friendly subdivision near a lively town that has a small town feel with big town opportunities. There are many parks, schools, and museums in our town. One of the parks has a little petting zoo that children love as well as ponds that allow for paddle boating or kayaking. Our home has a large, fenced-in yard that houses a play set and a sandbox. We love spending time outdoors and take our daughter and black lab mix dog for walks daily. We look forward to taking your child with us on our walks and bike rides, and also playing in the yard. Summertime you will find us gardening and playing outside with bikes, wagons, water toys, bubbles, on the play set, in the sandbox, or on the slip and slide. When the weather isn't as warm out, we play games inside or even go sledding, or build a snowman or a snow fort if there is snow on the ground. We have even put snow in the bathtub to play in when it was too cold to play outside for a spell. Our days conclude with family dinner at our table, followed by a bedtime story in your child's own bedroom.
A mutual friend introduced us in 2008 and we have been married since the fall of 2010. We were both shy at first, but once we got to know each other everything clicked. We discovered that we had many things in common. Our faith, love for travel, and commitment to our families are just a few of the areas where we found similarities. We also balance each other well with our differences. We have a goal of traveling to all 50 states and have crossed many off of our list. The furthest we have traveled was to Alaska and Hawaii and hope to return to both with our family. Pensacola Beach is our new favorite destination and we look forward to making it a regular destination for our family. We look forward to being able to take your child with our family on our tour of the USA so we can share these experiences with them.
Family is very important to us and we try to spend as much time with our families as we can. We go to sporting events, school activities, family birthday parties, graduations, and holidays. We also travel with our families once in a while. Mark's parents have traveled with us to the Grand Canyon and parts of Missouri. Stephanie's family goes on a yearly trip to Branson, Missouri. It is fun to be able to go to Branson and do activities with our daughter that we wouldn’t have been able to do without her and we look forward to having another child to take with us and share these experiences with.
Both of us have always wanted to have a family, and adoption has always been in our hearts as a way to build our family. After being married for four years and having not been blessed with a child naturally, we decided not to try infertility treatments and instead pursue adoption. Our daughter blessed us in 2018 and has been an absolute joy to every person she meets. Your child would get to be her little sibling and she would love and protect them. Your child would complete our little family and would be a true blessing. Your child already has many people who are excited to meet him or her. Mark comes from a large family and your child would have twenty-nine first cousins and would be the second grandchild in Stephanie's family, so he or she would have the best of both worlds. We have hearts full of love, a welcoming home, and wonderful families that are waiting to welcome a child with open arms. We look forward to raising another child and teaching them values such as respect, kindness, and honesty while helping them enjoy all that life has to offer.
Mark and Stephanie
