We have been together for seven years and married for five and a half years. We have always been involved in the lives of our nieces and nephews and supporting them is how we met. Our nephew's YMCA basketball game is where we first saw each other. Our first date was at the beach and still to this day the beach is our favorite place to spend time with each other and we can't wait to share this special place with a child. After our wedding we talked about expanding our family. We wanted to adopt along with having a child naturally. Unfortunately, we went through infertility and realized God had a different path for us to grow our family. We are fully committed to this path and can't wait to open our home to your child.
We will be working parents with lots of flexibility in our work schedules. During the early years we are blessed to have Nikki's mom, who is a retired teacher, care for this child when we are both working. Since this child will not be in daycare we plan on enrolling them in age appropriate classes to help develop social skills. Our work schedules will allow one of us to always be able to drop off and pick up from school and start homework once the formal educational years begin. With this flexibility Nikki envisions herself as the classroom mom, PTA parent, and field trip chaperone. Wesley envisions himself coaching this child's sports team and being able to join him/her for lunch at school.
We can't wait to incorporate a little one into our world. Education will be a priority in our household. We will also make sure we not only teach good morals and standards, but also practice them. We see building sand castles on the beach, teaching them how to swim, and Wesley teaching us about the constellations in the night sky at our favorite place. We would love to travel with them and introduce them to a world of many possibilities. Wesley is excited to share his love for fishing and Nikki is ready to start baking with them.
We are very close to our families, so they will be spending lots of time with us. Our family is super excited to welcome a new baby into our family. They have so much love to give and are ready to help instill our values, Christian beliefs, and help them become the best person they can be. We do believe it takes a village to raise a child and they are all in. They will also have a few cousins to grow up with.
We are willing to meet with you if you would like to meet us in person while you are making your decision. After your child is placed, we will send letters and pictures so you are able to see how much your child is loved and see their growth if you so choose. We are also open to reasonable communication by email. We do believe knowing where you come from is important and would be happy to share any information we know about you and your family to your child if you would like us to. Please know we will make sure your child knows how remarkable you are. They will know you gave us the best blessing anyone could have given us and the tough decision you made was based on the love you have for them.
Thank you for considering us as potential parents. We promise to give your child a loving, nurturing, stable, and safe home. We will continue to keep you in our prayers as you go through this difficult decision.Sincerely,
Wesley and Nikki
