We live in a small town in Southeast Missouri and are blessed with many friends and family nearby. We have one daughter, Emma, who is seven years old and we just love doing life with her! She is so much fun!! We love doing things as a family such as going out to eat, traveling, shopping and just playing. We ride bikes and play ball in the yard and dress Barbies and play baby dolls inside her play room. We just enjoy being together.
We met through a mutual friend at a BBQ cook off in Chris’ hometown 17 years ago and have been together ever since!! We have been married for 13 years! We also work together in the insurance field. When we are both working, the grandparents are planning on babysitting and can’t wait to spoil this child with love and affection!
We love being parents to our daughter but we have always known we wanted more children. Because of infertility, we are no longer able to conceive. We feel God placed adoption on our hearts and this is the plan He has for us to grow our family. Adoption is a precious gift and love is what truly makes a family.
We cannot imagine how hard this decision is for you and we pray God provides you with strength and peace. But we want you to know if you choose us to be parents to your precious child we will make sure he or she knows how much you love them and how courageous, strong and selfless you are. This child will always know his or her story of adoption and we will always celebrate his or her life and birth story.
Being parents to another child is our dream. We feel we have so much more love to give and can’t wait to share our lives with another child. We have an amazing circle of friends with babies and young children that this child will automatically be welcomed into. He or she will grow up in a church that focuses on children and their faith. Our community has a wonderful school district where this child’s education will be a priority. And he or she has an excited big sister waiting and praying for him or her!
It is important to us that you know you made the right decision in selecting us to parent your child and that you know he or she is loved and cared for. We would love the opportunity to stay in contact with you through open communication. We not only want to share your child’s special moments and milestones with you, but we also want to learn more about you and share in what is going on in your life. But please know, we will follow your lead on whatever level of communication you are comfortable with.
Thank you so very much for taking the time to get to know us. We admire your strength and courage as you consider adoption for your child. You are in our thoughts and prayers in the days ahead.Sincerely,
Chris and Audrey
