Hello. We are Marcus and Becky, and although we don’t know why you are considering adoption, we want you to know we have the greatest respect for the decision you make! Thank you for looking at our family profile and considering us to be your child’s parents. We are so excited for them to be included in all that we do and our sons, Matthew and Josh, can’t wait to share new adventures with their little sibling. Both have already colored pictures for the new baby and ask all the time when we can bring them home.
The two of us met in college through mutual friends and after spending a year getting to know each other we started dating. After a couple years of dating we were happily married and have been for seven years, and now have two beautiful energetic little boys. We would love to grow our family again and can’t think of a better way than through adoption! Your child will be loved cherished and spoiled by grandparents, aunts, uncles and friends who are already excited to meet them (some have even bought gifts they can’t wait to give your baby).
Marcus works as a full-time engineer for a great company that understands family comes first. This has made it easy for Marcus to be involved in the everyday lives of our boys and not miss out on any of the important events. Becky is a full-time stay-at-home mom and a part-time nurse. During the week she stays home with the boys and works only occasionally on the weekend’s at a local hospital. Our weeks are packed with activities for the kids such as art projects, play dates with friends, baking cookies, relaxing with a good book or just playing outside on the swing set Marcus built. The boys also love attending our wonderful Christian preschool where Becky serves as the VP of the school board and is a frequent parent volunteer.
We love to have fun and stay busy, but we also know it’s important to have down time where we can grow closer as family and bond with extended family. Our extended families love to stay involved in the children’s lives whether that be baby-sitting once a week so we can go to small group or going to the local water park with the kids. Our favorite place to relax is on vacation with extended family. We take annual trips to Becky’s parents cabin for relaxing bike rides, fishing, hiking and the great outdoors (always with S’mores) or with Marcus’ extended family on a week-long Independence Day vacation (one week all 50 of his relatives get together for fishing, hiking, water sports, basketball and just good old family meals). It is a time of bonding his family has done since before he was born.
If you choose us to be your child’s parents, we want you to know how loved your child will be by everyone in their life. By sharing letters and pictures with you as your child grows, we hope to give you comfort in knowing you made the right decision in choosing us. We also want your child to know how much you love them. Right from the beginning we will share your child’s adoption story with them, and allow them to ask questions so they will always know the courage, strength and unbelievable love it took for you to consider adoption.
We believe that children and family are one of God’s greatest blessings, and we can’t wait to add another child to our family! We are honored that you took the time to get to know us better!
Marcus and Rebecca
