What a beautiful thing, adoption. You are pregnant, with a child. You know it will be very difficult or impossible to provide for your child’s need on your own. We, on the other hand, have a house, a ready support system, and a strong 4 year foundation of love, yet we cannot create children ourselves. You need to find a family for your child, and we need your help to make our dreams come true! We are looking for the gift of adoption.
We know this is difficult to think about. Only you know what is best for this child. You can get all the advice in the world, but at the end of the day, you need to follow your heart.
If your heart leads you and your child to us, please know the road is wide and well-paved!
Your child will have a wonderful life, full of love and hugs. We have a large, supportive family with aunts, uncles, and cousins ready (and waiting!) to play with. We have an awesome dog, Molasses, who gives many kisses on the face, even if you don’t think you need it. We will play Apples to Apples, bake Apple Crisp, and bob for apples in the fall. We will make birthday, Christmas, and how-are-you cards, and send them to you, complete with photos and maybe some glitter.
We have many traditions and activities we can’t wait to include children in: family dinners are very important in our house. We both love to cook, and our kids will experience pride when eating pasta they made by hand. We also love being outdoors – hiking, snow shoeing, camping and swimming. We look forward to seeing the world through a child's eyes, and teaching them about the world so they gain a deep appreciation for what is around them. We also love to play games, and many games require more than two players! As the children get older, we will help them find opportunities to volunteer doing things that matter most to them: whether it is rebuilding trails or organizing games for children in a local shelter.
Making an adoption plan for your child is a brave and selfless act. If you are willing, our child will know who you are, and share our great appreciation for the role you play in our family. Our child will be proud of where they come from. They will know what they believe in, they will be brave and selfless, and they will help make the world a better place.
We are so excited to meet you! We have learned so much about adoption, we are humbled to know we are just one of many great families you could work with. Heck, we’d like to help these folks build their families, too! We’ve also learned that there are a great number of birth parents out there looking to make an adoption plan for their child. You are not alone, and your situation is much more common than you think.
You will find the situation that feels right for you and your baby. Find out what your heart needs to know, your heart will find the way!
If you'd like to learn more about us, please reach out. We want what is best for you and your baby. Adoption is a beautiful thing. We are happy to be part of your journey, wherever it leads.
