We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can only fly by embracing one another.
-Luciano De Crescenzo
We want to thank you for taking the time to read our profile. We understand that this can be a very difficult time, and you taking the time to get to know us means a lot.
We are Casey and Lucy. We have been married for 9 years and dated for 3 years prior to that. We are ready to share our home, lives, and hearts with a child. The idea of having a child in our home with us is so powerful. We love the idea of raising a child, of protecting them, and of always being there for them. Adoption has always been our first choice for having a child, and we are completely dedicated to the relationship we will have with this child.
Casey is a middle school teacher who works with young, vulnerable children every day. He loves helping them learn and grow, and that is one of the many factors that has shaped our desire to raise a child. We love picturing all of the wonderful moments we will have with a child, from the start of the day to the end. We know that raising children is hard work, and we are ready to give everything we have to love and support them.
Lucy is a software engineer. Not only is she organized, creative, responsible, and trustworthy, but she shows great kindness and generosity both in her job and at home. She helps others, explains things patiently, and gives of herself freely and often. These values have been the model for our future as parents. We want a child so that we can help them follow their dreams, and kindness and generosity will be the theme in our family of three.
We want your child to know how much love you have for them, and how much bravery you showed in the adoption process. It is our pleasure to share letters and pictures detailing the life of your child. Most of all, your child will always know how much they are loved by both you and our entire family.
We promise that we will be the best parents that we can. That your child’s joys will be ours, that their sorrows will be ours, and that their fights will be ours. We will do everything we can to ensure that they feel loved and supported always.
As parents, our goal will always be to support the person this child wants to be. We do not want to impose any of our own expectations on a child; we want to encourage them to find their own talents, interests, and passions.
One thing we plan to do with our child is read: a love of reading can make a world of difference in life. We have begun to read children’s books to each other before bed, just to practice for when we have our own little one!
We cannot imagine better friends, family, and co-workers than we have. Your child would not only be getting our love but also the support of all of these people as well.
We are not extraordinary people in any way. We are not famous or rich, extremely educated, amazingly talented, or world travelers. We are just ordinary people who have a lot of love to give to a child. We love each other, our friends and family, our jobs, and our home, and now we are ready to share our love with a child and the people who brought that child into the world.
No matter what choice you make personally, we want to wish you all the luck in the world and send you our love and support. Thank you for viewing our profile and considering us for such a special and important role in the life of your child.
Casey and Lucy
