Having a child to love has always been an experience that we have been excited for. In 2017, when we were informed that Maria was diagnosed with hormonal breast cancer, we were also informed that if we decided to grow our family through the natural process that she would be at a greater risk. Maria is now cancer-free and we still want to grow our family and are very thankful for mothers like you that make such a sacrifice to trust another family with your child.
We are very humbled by the selfless decision that you are considering. There’s no way for us to understand what emotions you're experiencing but know that if you are led to choose us, we will be there for you to talk to through those difficult times. We already have something in common - the desire to give your child the best life possible in a loving environment that will provide them with many opportunities.
Should you decide to give us the opportunity to care for your child, we can assure you they will be loved. They will have a mother that is caring and puts the needs of others in front of hers and a father that is kind-hearted and a provider. The love your child will experience will extend well beyond the walls of our house; they will be loved by our extended family, friends, co-workers, and church family, just to name a few.
Our journey together began in 2009 in our hometown at a fundraiser event that Raleigh’s employer was sponsoring that Maria had brought an individual she was providing care services for. Our mutual interest as being caregivers started our bond. We were engaged in 2012 and married in 2014 with all our close friends and family in attendance. Our story has had several chapters over the years and we’re excited for the next chapter to be the expansion of our family through adoption.
If your decision is to choose us, we promise to provide the love and support that your child will need to have the best life possible and to provide them with opportunities for growth and success. We are forever grateful that you have taken the time to consider us and we are very humbled by your decision. We will forever consider you as part of your child’s life and promise to share with them that the decision to place them for adoption was an act of selfless love.
Forever Grateful and With Love,
Raleigh and Maria
