We have been married for a little more than 5 years and have known each other for more than 7 years. We discussed having children before we were married and were excited to be parents. We wanted to share our faith and our interests with children and also discover our children's individual personalities. Would they like dance or soccer or reading? Would they like to be dressed up or play in the dirt? Maybe all of the above? Would they want to play the clarinet like Aly, the trombone like David, or would they want something completely different?
After several years and many doctors appointments we realized that we were not going to conceive a child. We started talking about adoption. We prayed to God for help in discerning His will. Were we mentioned to raise a child or did he have other plans for us? We really felt that we were meant to have children.
Aly has always loved children. She started babysitting when she was in high school. She volunteered in her church's nursery. She has a minor in Child Development. She has spent many hours helping with her friend's children, and tries to spend as much time with nephews as she can. David loves children too. He has always loved teaching, and he loves helping children learn. He has helped Aly in the church's nursery, and mentored children at an elementary school to help them with their science fair projects.
We want to share our lives with children and nurture and support them as they grow.
We both grew up with a stay-at-home mother until we went to school and we both felt that we benefited from having a parent stay home with us. We are blessed that Aly will be able to stay home to care for this child. Aly looks forward to taking a child to parks and children's museums, going to the beach, and story time at the local library during the week. We look forward to family dinners and time spent together as a family. We look forward to taking the child to church with us and passing on our faith in God. As the child grows, we look forward to attending the child's after school activities and encouraging them in their interests.
Should you choose us to raise your child we will send letters and pictures to you. We would also be open to phone calls and emails if you would prefer. We would also be interested in a visit with you while this child was still under 5 years old. We want them to know that you love them and want the best for them.
Thank you for taking the time to get to know us.Best Regards,
David and Aly
