We’ve been happily married for seven years, but have been together for just over 15 years now. We are a fun-loving couple who enjoys traveling, outdoor activities, and spending time with family and friends. We are both hard working individuals but value are time at home. We love to laugh and being surrounded by good genuine people. We live our lives with the promise of what you put out to the world will eventually come back to you. We want you to know that we dream about being parents someday all the time and talk about often. We have shared values that include honesty, hard work and being kind.
Our Home & Community
We live in a 3 bedroom ranch and have already turned one of the rooms into a nursery. Our yard is spacious and offers plenty of room for a swing set or just to run around in. Our neighborhood is filled with young families and they are all very close knit. We knew from the minute we moved here that this was the perfect place to raise a family someday. The school bus stop is even located right in front of our house. Our hope is to see our child at the same bus stop one day with their friends as we see our neighbors kids there now. We are also minutes away from a free beach and a large park.
Our Thoughts about Parenting & Adoption
We both come from very large families and enjoy spending time with them. Our sisters have children of their own and we adore being their Aunt and Uncle. However we still long for the day that we can hold the title of Mom and Dad and feel that adoption was the plan we never knew we wanted so much. This means having a family to call our own and being able to raise a good human being. We have talked for years about the kind of parents we would be some day and how we would always be there for our children. Our dreams of being a parent can come true because of this process . We believe that we were meant to be a part of something bigger than ourselves and we were always meant to travel this path in life because we have so much joy, love and laughter to share. Our life as a couple has been really great thus far and we know our life as a family will be even better.
Thank you for taking the time to consider us as prospective adopting parents for your precious little one. We know that raising a child will not always be easy but we promise to be patient and kind to help nurture our child as they grow up. We also promise to always be in their corner and we will never take for granted this gift we have been given. We will tell your baby the truth of where they first came from and how amazing their birth mother is because she was so strong, so brave and loved them so much that she chose this path. We hope your journey to finding the perfect parents for your baby is a loving one.
