We don’t know you yet. We don’t know your background or what led you down this path, but we are praying for you, for your safety and protection through your pregnancy. We pray that God gives you absolute peace with whatever decision you come to and that He blesses your future. We don’t know you yet, but we hope to.
We can’t begin to imagine what you are going through right now, and the selfless love that it must take to consider adoption. What has to be scary and unimaginable for you would be the biggest blessing of our lives, and that alone makes us love you. We are humbled that you are even considering us. Thank you for taking the time to look through our profile.
We met around 2012 through mutual friends. We began dating in 2014 and knew right away that our future was together. After our wedding in 2016 we decided to wait a year before having children. We wanted to travel and have a little more time with just the two of us. At the time we thought we’d have multiple children; we both came from large families, and we knew that our devotion would be to our kids, so we wanted a little extra time for the two of us before starting a family.
Fast forward a bit and we decided to start trying to grow our family. We got pregnant with our daughter Remy right away and began the greatest journey of our life. Little did we know what a miracle she truly was, as Pam has since struggled with fibroids, surgery, and we’ve been diagnosed with unexplainable infertility.
This brings us to now. Pam has wanted to adopt since she was a young girl. At 14 years old she researched the requirements to be an adoptive parent, and knew that one day adoption would be part of her journey. After our infertility diagnosis we both knew that this was the next step, a long term dream, coming true sooner than expected.
Getting married in our late twenties gave us both time to establish careers and to know what we wanted in a partner and what kind of parents we wanted to be. If you choose us to help raise your sweet baby, we can promise that they will know endless love and acceptance. We have no words to describe the joy our daughter brings to us and how we look forward to having another child to share our dreams and our future with. They will know constant snuggles and reading time, bedtime prayers and church on Sunday, bike rides and playing at the local parks.
We live in a small community and are focused on faith, family and community. Our town is one where kids can still ride around with their friends and neighbors look after each other. Where a benefit brings out the entire community and the support is what you would expect from close family. Where we have our family, our friends who are family, our church family, our work families, and a supportive, safe and involved, community.
We are often found at the family farm, helping with planting or harvesting, riding horses and four wheelers during the spring and summer, or working at home in our own garden and playing on the swing set in our backyard. The best is when we get to be down by the lake playing in the sand (Remy’s favorite), on the Jet Ski (Max’s favorite) or relaxing and soaking up some sun on the pontoon with friends (Pam’s favorite). We also enjoy the drive-in movie theater, hunting, hiking, bike rides, playing yard games or playing at one of the two parks that are just a few blocks from our house.
During the winter we enjoy a slower pace and take time to play board games, read books, watch movies, bake (Christmas baking for all the neighbors and friends is a favorite!), or cook. Every time we get drawn into a Gordon Ramsey show we think we can cook like professionals and always enjoy the challenge. Remy loves sitting on the counter to help dump in ingredients or stir (and lick) the bowls and her favorite show is “Is it Cake?”
If you feel like this is the kind of life you’d like for your child, we would be honored to raise them as our own. To love and to cherish them. To give them countless opportunities in life and to encourage them to be the best that they can be.
