Adoptive Family Mike and Kate
Thank you so much considering us as you make the difficult decision of who will parent your child. We are Kate and Mike. We hope that through this letter in some small way you will be able to see the love and deep appreciation we have for each other, our family and our son. Our greatest wish is to expand our family and share our love, joy and laughter with another child. Your child will be welcomed into a loving, supportive and joy-filled home with a boy that can't wait to be a big brother!

From the moment we met and fell in love six years ago, family was our priority and we were blessed with our son Luke in October 2014. Our journey to become a family has been a difficult one, making us cherish each other and our role as parents every day. We are an active family enjoying hiking, biking together and all manner of outdoor activities. Kate is an avid runner, cook and gardener and as a former Division 1 college football player Mike loves watching and playing sports. We are devoted to each other as a couple and feel blessed to have found our soul mates in life. Spending time together and as a family is our #1 priority and what we find the most happiness doing.

We see adoption as the single greatest act of love and selflessness birth parents can show, and to be a part of that would be humbling and inspiring.

About Kate (told by Mike): It took me many years to find Kate. She is the girl that I had been wishing and hoping would come into my life. She is down to earth, funny, hard working, goofy and an extremely loving and caring person. I knew at on first date that Kate shares the same Christian values, goals and loving spirit as me. I always thought that Kate would make a great mother, but I really didn't know how incredibly patient and nurturing she would be until we had our son Luke. I am so blessed to have Kate as my best friend and wife, but I am exceptionally fortunate to have her as the best mom a child can ever have!

About Mike (told by Kate): Mike simply amazes me. He has accomplished so much in his life working overseas protecting our embassies, but you would never know he used to have such a serious job. He is the most light-hearted, funny person always ready with a smile and silly joke. He has loved me unconditionally and always makes me feel like Luke and I are his top priority. He is an incredibly caring man to me and our son and tears up saying how lucky he is to have us. But, the truth is we are lucky to have him. He is our solid rock, caregiver, friend, love, protector, playmate and guide. He is an amazing father and I am so blessed to go through life with him.

We want you to know the immense respect we have for you. You have immeasurable courage, strength and love within you. That will always be shared with your child - what a selfless, giving and brave birth mother he or she has. We know that you want only the very best for your child, and we promise to make it our daily mission to live up to the expectations, hopes and dreams you have for him or her. It would be our pleasure to share information about the child as they grow including letters, photos, videos and the like. It is our sincere hope that the birth mother [you] would be a part of their lives. We have a big, warm and involved extended family who are ready to welcome this child with open arms! We hope if you choose us to parent your child, that you will be a part of their lives. We believe there cannot be too many people loving a child and we would welcome you to be a part of that. We wish you peace and luck in your search.


Mike and Kate
