We have wanted to be parents for a long time and at the same time have really enjoyed the time just the two of us. Like anything we've faced together, our infertility is something to be acknowledge and faced head on but also mourn. We are very thankful to have dealt with that and moved forward to be excited about building our family through adoption. We have both always considered it, even if we could have biological children of our own. We want to build our family to build our community to build our world.
We are in a committed marriage that we see as an equal partnership where we seek to listen to and learn from each other each and every day. We are thankful for the time we spent learning more about ourselves and each other. We have grown so much over our last 10 years together, and as our marriage vows read, we have changed "together for the better." Our marriage is strong because of this time, and we look forward to its continued growth as we welcome a child into the family.
We have the most wonderful family and friends anyone could ask for - a community of fun, caring, and loving people who will welcome our baby into their lives with open arms - people to love and protect, teach and play with our little one, people who will love watching our baby grow up in and influence the world around him/her. We cannot wait to bring our little baby home to meet all of them and become a part of our family.
We are ecstatic to be able to watch a little person be a person - to wonder about the world, to learn, to try things, to fail, to learn, to try, to fail, to learn. We can't wait to hear a little one talk for the first time and then move onto toddler-hood and say things all wrong yet so cute - to watch our baby become a teenager, choose a college and/or career, bring friends and dates into our home, and most importantly, thoroughly enjoy the life God has given us. We will laugh and cry with our children and watch in awe as they become the men or women they were put on this earth to be.
We know that none of these dreams and none of these realities would be possible without you, and we are so thankful for you. If you would like, we are open to sending you letters, pictures, and updates often. We are open to more contact such as exchange of emails and/or future visits. We look forward to exploring the best option for the child (and all of us) together with you.
Thank you for the brave yet hard decision you are making. We will always respect you for your choice and communicate this with our child. Thank you for considering us as potential parents.
