Hi! We are Gary and Amy. We have been married for 13 years. Our plan was to have children many years ago, but there were other plans in store for us, one of which led us along this path to adoption. We have lots of love and guidance that we can provide to your child, and know that we do not need to bring our own children into this world in order to be fulfilled in life.
Gary is a supervisor in a machine shop and Amy is a financial analyst. We both work Monday through Friday but work different shifts, so there will almost always be someone at home during the week. We have two cats that we adopted from two different shelters a few years ago. They have been a big part of our home life for many years and have given us much joy. We keep ourselves busy and weekends are filled with fun things we enjoy. If the weather is nice, we enjoy spending time outdoors, especially hiking and kayaking. We look forward to teaching your child all about the outdoor activities we love, such as learning to ride a bike, paddling a kayak, and teaching them to fish. When we’re not spending time in nature, we like to go to concerts and baseball games (there is a college summer league team nearby, and a professional team that is further away, but still close enough to go occasionally). We also spend time visiting family or friends. We enjoy these visits whether it is a planned event or an informal get-together at our home or theirs. It may be as simple as visiting, sharing a meal, and playing games. Many of our friends have children, so your child will have other kids to play with and grow close to. To wrap up the weekends on Sundays, we go to church, prepare for the coming week, and spend some much-needed time relaxing. Your wonderful child’s future with us will be a home filled with love and lots of hugs. There will be many celebrated occasions; birthdays, Christmases, Thanksgivings, and many other things in-between.
We’re grateful that you’re considering us to raise your baby. We understand that this is a difficult decision for you as you are evaluating what is best for you and your baby. Please know that whatever you decide; your child will be well taken care of. When we talk to your child about you, we will share anything we can. We want them to be aware that they are adopted from an early age to avoid delaying the conversation which could make it more difficult and lead to distrust. We will assure them that they are loved and wanted. We are open to maintaining contact and we’d like to discuss what that relationship would look like and determine what would work for the best interest of your child.
