Hello! Thank you for taking the time to read our profile to get to know us!
Adding a child to our family will be the biggest blessing we could ask for in our future. We promise you that your child would be loved immensely by us, our family, and our friends. We are extremely thankful to have such a large, supportive, and loving family that will be our strong support system. We are fortunate to be able to have Michaela work part-time, so that she can stay home with your child more often, and on the days that she works, Michaela’s family will be babysitting. We promise to cherish all the milestones in their life and are more than happy to share those milestones with you. We want you to be able to choose the type of relationship that we have as a family. We understand that your wishes may change as the years go on and we are more than happy to be flexible over the years. We promise to be open and honest to your child about their adoption story. No matter what type of relationship you choose, they will know how much you love and care for them, and how much respect and love we as adoptive parents have towards you.
We both have wanted to be parents for as long as we can remember, but it wasn’t safe for Michaela to carry a child, nor did we want to pass down a genetic disease to a child by having a surrogate. As a senior in high school in 2012, Michaela received an emergency liver transplant. It turned out she had Wilson’s disease since she was born, but was unaware until the damage was too far. Michaela thought she had the flu, but a few days later her parents took Michaela to their local ER, and they sent her to a Children’s Hospital by ambulance. Hours after arriving at the hospital, Michaela was told she needed a liver transplant and only had 3 days to live without one. Thanks to a very special donor, Michaela was given the gift of life.
We can’t begin to understand your feelings at this time, but we truly admire you and the brave decision you’re making. You will always be in our thoughts and prayers. We can assure you that your child will be well cared for, and loved every single day unconditionally. Not a day will go by without your child knowing they are extremely loved, and we are beyond grateful for them. We will strive to give your child the best childhood, and make it as fun and adventurous as possible. We will provide everything we can to set your child up for the best possible future. As parents, we will be their coaches during the difficult times, and their biggest cheerleaders during their best times. We will teach them not to give up on their dreams, and that the sky is their limit. No matter where or what they want their future to be, we will be very supportive, helpful, and understanding. We are certain that the love we will have for your child will be just as powerful as any biological relationship. We are honored to even be considered, and in the end, we know you will make the best decision for you and your child.
Logan and Michaela
