We can, however, assure you that we would offer a stable, loving, fun home with all of the opportunities they need for a positive future. We know the value of faith, education, kindness, and family, and will pass those values on to our children. Adoption had been something on our hearts from even before we had biological children. When Kati had her surgery and could no longer have children, we knew it was leading us down this path to expand our family.
When our first child was born, everything clicked for Kati. She truly felt that God had created her to care for and nurture children. Kati has education in early childhood development and helped children with special needs communicate as a speech language pathologist. When our sons were born, she knew that she wanted to stay at home with them to be there for all of those special moments. She loves being able to drop them off at school and to be waiting when they get home, to make them lunch and read books before naptime, to go on playdates and volunteer at their school. Kati has a way of making children feel incredibly loved and they express that love in return. Even if she is gone briefly to run an errand, they greet her as if she has been gone for days when she returns, full of smiles and hugs.
Dan’s natural ability to care for others and have to a calm head in stressful situations makes him an excellent nurse, but also makes him a wonderful father. Dan has worked in a variety of medical settings including neurology, intensive care, and now the emergency room. His medical knowledge has been a blessing to our family. Dan is humble, handy, and hard working. He teaches our children the skills they will need as adults and expresses how much he loves them. Dan is happy to do the things that are needed to keep the household running smoothly, from grocery shopping to dishes. He is an example of how to treat women and all people with respect and kindness. He takes his role as a provider very seriously and always puts our needs before his own.
We have known each other since our sophomore year of high school and have a solid friendship that is the backbone of our marriage. We approach parenting together, appreciate each other’s strengths, and respect one another. We were blessed to have wonderful marriages to admire in our own parents and are 100 percent committed to our family.We can promise you that we will love your child as our own and they will be brought up in a family that cherishes what makes them unique. We know that sharing pictures and letters as they grow will give you happiness that they are thriving and incredibly loved. We wish you a healthy pregnancy and thank you again for considering us!
