Thank you for taking the time to read our profile and getting to know us a little better. We can't even begin to imagine what you're going through but we want you to know that as you're about to make one of the biggest decisions of your life, we count it a privilege to be someone you would consider to raise your child. We admire your courage to consider adoption and pray that as you make your selection, God will give you peace and comfort during this time. Life certainly has its challenges and doesn't always go according to plan. We have learned that despite the ups and downs of life there is peace in knowing that God has everything worked out for us and He gives us the desires of our hearts.
We have been married for 14 years but have considered each other as best friends since Jr. High. We have always dreamed of having a family of our own but early on in our marriage it became evident that we would not be able to have our children naturally. As we worked through that reality and discovered the blessing of adoption, our hearts were encouraged to know that our dreams to become parents could be a reality. The opportunity to adopt a child into our family has brought us closer together. We find ourselves talking about how exciting it will be to have a family of our own. It amazes us that someone like you could bless us with a precious life to love, protect, cherish and provide for. A very supportive family and group of friends that have journeyed through life with us are also eager to love this child.
We look forward to every aspect of parenthood and having a family. Ben's career has made it possible for Michelle to transition from teaching to becoming a stay-at-home mom. Each day will be a new adventure as we have the unique opportunity to live and work overseas at times. This allows us to experience other cultures, customs, languages, and people groups. We see these opportunities as a positive experience that most people will never enjoy. We hope to instill strong values and traditions and are so excited to watch our child explore life and discover what the world has to offer.
We know that you will never stop thinking about your child as they will forever be apart of who you are and that is why we want you to know that we will raise your child with the knowledge of your love. As your baby grows, we will make sure to send you pictures and letters to keep you updated on your child's growth, personality, life experiences and special moments that affect who they are as a person. We believe it's important for our child to know and embrace his/her adoption story. The story will be something we will appreciate, respect and celebrate through our lives. Our hope is you feel peace in knowing how much your child will be loved as we honor the wishes and dreams you have for him/her. We will always be grateful for the amazing way our family was created, by you and your incredibly loving decision.
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us!
Ben and Michelle
