Hello from beautiful Colorado! We are William and Katie, high school sweethearts who are ready to begin the next step in our lives as parents. First, we want to thank you for taking the time to read our story and considering us to raise your child. We hope to provide you with some insight into our lives and show you how much love is in our family.
We feel honored that you would consider us to raise your child and will take that commitment very seriously. Your baby will have loving parents who put them first and give them every opportunity to excel in life. We look forward to watching them grow and supporting their interests by getting involved in whatever they love. They will live in a safe and loving home with two sweet dogs who can’t wait to run around with them in the backyard and snuggle together on the couch. Our support system is in place to make your baby’s transition into our family as easy as possible. We have the love and support of friends and family who will be there to help us as we settle into our new role as parents. Both our moms are planning to visit once the baby is home with us and our friends have promised to bring hot meals to keep us fed and a baby shower to provide us with all the things we’ll need.
Having children together has always been a life goal for us as a couple. Early on in our relationship, we discussed adoption as part of our plan to grow our family. We were both always excited about the idea of adopting a child, but weren’t sure when would be the right time to start that journey. We were lucky to have found each other young, and kids were a distant dream for a long time. It wasn’t until the last few years after we had bought our first home and felt settled in our careers, that we finally decided we were ready to start a family. How heartbreaking it was to discover things wouldn’t be as easy as we thought. While our struggle with infertility was one of the most difficult things we’ve been through as a couple, it showed us how strong we were together and how much love we had in our hearts for a child. Infertility opened the door for our adoption journey to begin and we are thrilled for our first child to come to us in this way. It is more perfect and more special than anything we could have imagined or planned.
We will include your child in every part of our lives. We’ll take them on fun family vacations to experience the world and make lasting memories we can share. Family is important to us so although the majority of our family lives elsewhere, we will make sure to stay connected through regular phone calls and trips. Your child will get to visit grandparents and extended family out of state and develop relationships with their cousins, aunts, and uncles. We are also hoping to start a yearly family vacation at the beach or a cabin in the mountains where our extended family can gather with us to have fun and catch up. We’ll teach your child about our hobbies and spend time together sharing things we love. They’ll be included in the traditions we have started as a couple and help us come up with more fun things to do regularly as a family. If your child is of a different race or background, we will celebrate that diversity and do our best to teach them about their ancestry. It is our hope that you will stay connected with us as well and we look forward to sharing regular updates to keep you informed. Our ultimate goal will be to provide your child with the best life we can and provide you with comfort knowing your child is safe, healthy, and loved.
