We grew up in small towns with very close families. We met through mutual friends at church. Our relationship is formed around friendship, trust, kindness, loyalty, respect, giving, honesty, laughter and lots of love, Together, we're fun, energetic, silly, adventurous and enjoy laughter. We love to be outside and we live life to the fullest. One of our first adventures was a 10-mile canoe trip in pouring down rain. We came up with every song about rain and laughed our way through our rain-soaked adventure!
Although we are very happy with our lives, having a family has always been our biggest dream. We chose adoption as we believe it is the best option to grow our family. We know it will be the answer to our prayers. We feel a part of our heart is currently missing and it will become completely full when we are able to add a child to our family. We would be forever grateful if you feel that we are worthy to raise your child.
We know raising a child is not just about our happiness. We are ready to sacrifice whatever it takes to help bring happiness into our child’s life, knowing he or she will be fully loved, supported and encouraged by us every moment of his or her life. We know that parenting will not always be easy but expect it to be one of the most rewarding and humbling things we will ever do in our lifetimes. We are prepared for sleepless nights, comforting a toddler after a bad dream, helping with school work, coaching their sports team (or other activities) and doing whatever it takes to help our child grow into a confident young adult.
We can’t wait to share with him or her how excited and nervous we were to speak to you for the first time. How we hoped you’d fall in love with us and give us the gift of being the parents for your child. We love the idea of staying connected with you because we believe this will be best for everyone involved. Photography is one of our hobbies and we can’t wait to share photos with you.
Our child will grow up spending time at the lakes either fishing with Grandpa, hanging out, boating, tubing and swimming with friends, many aunts and uncles and lots of cousins. There will be lots of family celebrations and holiday traditions and family adventures near and far. There will be lots of hugs every single day with lots of love and laughter, shared family meals, and a room to mess up with toys.
We want to be parents. We will be incredible parents and will give this child all the love, support, education and opportunities that we possibly can. We know our lives are about to change in so many ways that we can’t imagine. We are so looking forward to these changes because we are ready for chaos, smiles, kisses, hugs, and the many, many firsts a child will bring. We believe having a child will open our minds and hearts to so many new experiences and in ways we have not yet dreamed nor thought of, and our lives will be forever blessed because of this.
Adoption is the ultimate, most unselfish gift that we could ever receive and we are grateful beyond measure for your interest in us. Thank you so much for taking the time to read about us.With love and respect,
Brad and Karey
