We truly admire you for having the courage to consider us as the family to raise your unborn child. Your decision to explore the adoption process shows that you are evaluating all of your options to ensure the best future for your child. We know we can provide the ideal love-filled, nurturing environment in which to raise children. Indeed, it is our dream to grow our family by bringing another child into our home, and we hope that you bless us by making our dreams come true.
Our lives became intertwined back in 2009 on Halloween night. We had an instant connection that has only grown stronger since we first laid eyes on one another. What can we say, we absolutely adore each other, and we cannot wait to bring another child into the beautiful world we have created with our son, Isaiah. By the way, our beautiful world also includes our adorable pup, Enzo! He is such a sweet boy, and oh so loving around babies and children.
Rest assured that any child that comes into our lives will not only be loved dearly but will also be set up to thrive! You see, Erica spent seven years as a kindergarten teacher and early childhood educator, and she is so excited to play games, inspire, and teach our children in the same way she did with so many other children. Erica is now a registered nurse, so any cuts, scrapes, or bruises will be well cared for!
After practicing law for just shy of eight years, Josh switched careers to pursue his true passion – running a business. Josh now runs a business for a large company that offers employees ample work from home flexibility. And on those days that Josh goes to the office, he is consistently home just after 5 pm, leaving plenty of time for stories and playtime!
For the past 18 months, Isaiah has been hard at work training to be a big brother. He has a couple of baby dolls (and stuffed animals) that he enjoys pushing around the house in the stroller and pretends to feed at mealtimes. Isaiah is such a smart and responsible kiddo, and he is so ready to teach, protect and care for his future little brother or sister. Isaiah is going to be a great big brother!
Our family enjoys an active lifestyle! Afternoons and weekends are often spent riding bikes by the lakefront, playing at one of the many parks and playgrounds scattered throughout our neighborhood, and having multiple dance parties throughout the day. We love teaching Isaiah new dance moves, and he has taught us a few as well! We also enjoy taking sun-filled walks with Enzo around our neighborhood and listening to tunes while cooking dinner or barbecuing outside. We cannot wait to share all of these moments with another little one!
It is hard to communicate through a letter how important family is to us. In short, there is nothing more important. Living in Wisconsin, Erica’s entire family is within two hours of our house, so we regularly enjoy family gatherings at the family-owned campground. And although Josh’s family lives primarily in California, his mother relocated to Wisconsin to be closer to her grandson, Isaiah. And she is over-the-moon excited about welcoming another grandchild into the family. Please understand that our families molded us into the people we are today by showering us with love, support and devotion, and we so deeply want to bring another child into our family so they can experience all the same wonderful things.
We imagine that you have a million questions swirling in your mind right now, or certainly enough to feel completely overwhelmed. That being said, if there is just one thing you take from our profile, we hope it is that our love for one another – Josh, Erica, and Isaiah – is immeasurable, and we are more than ready to share our love with another child. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for taking the time to review our profile.
