We are Brooke and Lance and we want to thank you for taking the time to learn a bit about us. We are extremely grateful to be considered as potential parents should you choose adoption. Hopefully our profile allows you a glimpse into who we are as a family and we look forward to the possibility of getting to know you better in the future!
We have been together for ten wonderful years. In October 2010 we became a family when we were married and had our son, Tucker. We have spent these past years building a strong, loving, and supportive relationship. When we found out we could not have any more children we were devastated, but after much thoughtful discussion decided that adoption would be the best opportunity to expand our family. We have been preparing for this journey and are ready to welcome another child into our family.
Our son is now six and is very excited to become a big brother. He is such a smart, sweet, witty and sensitive boy. We love him to pieces and he is the center of our universe. He’s looking forward to teaching his brother or sister to color in the lines, ride a bike, build a pillow fort and get the most out of their grandparents. He also wanted us to tell you that when the baby arrives he will probably be able to read them a bedtime story, because he has been working hard on learning his sight words. He has also set a few of his babies (his stuffed animals) aside to share with his new sibling in hopes this will make them feel welcome and at home.
We promise to provide your child with everything we have been blessed with. Your child will grow up in a happy and healthy environment. They will have fantastic educational opportunities and have the ability to participate in a wide range of extracurricular activities, such as learning to play an instrument, enjoying art classes, participating in a variety of sports, and being active in the community through different social groups. We love watching the young people in our lives find what they are interested in and pursuing those interests. We will be very involved in their schooling, helping them with homework, volunteering in their classrooms and encouraging a love of learning. When the time comes, we will go and visit the colleges they are interested in attending or explore other opportunities they are passionate about.
They will have the opportunity to travel to other countries, experience different cultures and to try new foods. We will visit national parks and monuments, fun and educational museums and see an occasional Broadway show. There will be family vacations where they will learn to ski, boogie board, snorkel, and make S ‘mores. Your child will grow up in a household with fun traditions, lots of laughter and happy times. Music will be played while dinner is cooking and the occasional dance party might break out. Movie nights are on Friday, complete with popcorn and pajamas. In the summer they will most likely root for the Dodgers and in the fall they will cheer on the Cowboys. We will finish every day by reading books and talking about the best parts of our day. There will be excessive amounts of love and support given forever.
This is hopefully the start of a lifetime of exchanges between us. The sharing of pictures, writing of letters and updates on accomplishments and milestones will keep us connected. Your child will know where they came from and we will share with them your story, which is the beginning of their story. They will know that you love them so much and wanted to give them the best that life has to offer. They will know that you made this incredibly difficult and selfless decision with their health, happiness and future in mind.
Lance and Brooke
