We can’t even imagine the challenge of searching to find the best fit for you and your child through reading a profile. How do you get to know someone from a profile? How many more profiles are you going to have to read? We understand this can be a lengthy and sometimes tedious task. For that, we sincerely thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for taking the time to read "another profile", our profile.
Let us begin by telling you a little bit about ourselves. We are Amber and Steve and we have been married for five years, but together for eight. We have a dog named Boozer (Boo Boo for short), who is the most lovable dog and a neighborhood favorite. Right now, Boozer gets all of our love and attention. Our dog will be thrilled to be a big brother as he loves to play with our nieces, nephews and neighborhood children.
We both have always wanted to be parents, and knew adoption was the right path for us. We have nine nieces and nephews. Steve is known as the cool/fun uncle, who is always running around with our nieces and nephews, while Amber is known as the mothering, nurturing one with a loving heart. Together, we make the perfect combination to balance each other out.
We want to raise a child with the teachings and philosophies that were instilled in us growing up. Though we were each brought up in different environments, the values that were bestowed upon us were very similar in nature. We will teach our child to love themselves and to be kind to others, show them the ropes of how to deal with emotional and physical challenges. Life can be difficult, but we want to teach that struggles aren't necessarily negative, but a way to grow and become a strong individual. We want to emphasize the joys we see every day and not to take anything for granted.
You have amazing bravery and courage to deal with the decisions you had and are going to have to make. We honor and respect that. As adoptive parents, we would love the opportunity to build a lasting relationship with you and to get to know more about you. We would also love for the child to know where they come from and to have the ability to answer, honestly and truthfully, any questions they may have. We all will be linked together by this child; therefore, we prefer to have open communications, and visits (depending on distance) if that is your desire. You will always be a very important part of our family and we look forward to building a bond and friendship with you.
Again, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking the time to read our profile. We wish you the best of luck on your journey.
Steve and Amber
