            Even though we haven’t met yet, we know you are strong and brave. There are many decisions and unknowns about what lies ahead. We commend you for your courage of taking one step at time and we hope you are doing well today. The fact that you would consider our family for your child is an overwhelming honor. Thank you for taking the time to read about us.

            Marcus and I really enjoy spending time together whether that’s going to a coffee shop, hiking, sitting in a hammock, or watching a movie. Music is important to us.  We play instruments, enjoy attending concerts, and music fills our home. We both played basketball in high school and Marcus played in college. Now, we stay active in other ways for exercise and especially love going on family walks.  Traveling is one of our main loves! It is something we have made a priority and we are looking forward to continuing to make more traveling memories with our children.

            During our years of marriage, a lot of life has happened; mostly great things and a few really hard things. One of those hard things has been our inability to biologically have children. One of the great things that has happened to our family is our daughter. Working with Deaconess, we were matched with our daughter and her biological family and have an open adoption. We love that she’ll get to share that common adoption bond with a sibling.

            We want to teach our children the values of love, respect, and patience as well as integrity, kindness, and honesty. We will give our children the opportunity to learn in every way possible including learning a trade and going to college if they choose to. We want them to know that Jesus loves them, we love them, you love them, and they are capable of whatever they put their minds to.

            Our desire is to have a friendship with you. We would never push that on you, but we really would love to know you if and when you’re ready for that.  You already have a really special place in our hearts and we hope someday you’ll feel like you’re a part of our family. Our hope is to hang a picture of you in the baby’s room. The Tinybeans app is a great way for us to be able to share our pictures with you and your family.  If you’re up for it, we desire to have 4-6 visits per year. Our conversations about you with this child will be common and frequent. We’ll remind them how much you love them and how special you are to our family.

            Thank you again for taking time to read this! We’re very grateful for you, your love for your baby, your thoughtfulness in considering us as parents, and your extreme selflessness of choosing to carry this sweet baby. We hope you feel peace and feel loved today!
