Hi! We are Dillon and Vanessa. We want to thank you for taking the time to read our profile and get to know us a little better. We are in awe of your bravery in considering adoption for your baby. We know that you want what’s best for your little one.
We met as teenagers at our local Christian church and quickly became high school sweethearts. We married when we were 21 and 22 and have been married for over 7 years. We have both always wanted to raise children, as we both love kids. Adoption was always something that we talked about doing, even before we were engaged. Being a diverse family was always a dream.
Currently, Dillon is finishing up his training as an orthopedic surgeon and it has become pretty clear that this is a perfect time to add to our family through adoption. Vanessa works as a physician assistant but has always dreamed of being a stay-at-home mom and focusing all her energy on raising our kids. As a child, one of the things she treasured the most is the time she was able to spend with her mom who was a stay-at-home mom. Those home cooked meals, help with homework, and late night talks after a long emotional day were so incredibly special to her. Dillon's mom was also a stay-at-home mom and he also treasures all the time and support he received from her during his childhood.
We know that the decision to place your baby for adoption is one of the hardest decisions you will ever make. Please know that we would love, nurture and care for your child with all of our hearts. We don't consider the choice to become parents lightly. It is a role that we know will have its highs and lows and we are committed to being the best parents that we could possibly be. Your child would be raised in a stable home with lots of support and guidance.
We both love traveling and exploring this amazing world. We plan to continue traveling and exploring with a little one. We want our children to get to know different cultures, historical sites, natural wonders, and even taste different foods. We would also like to raise our children in a bilingual home as we were raised since we know the value and advantage of speaking different languages.
We would love to be able to maintain a relationship with you if that is what you choose. We believe that the relationship you have with your baby is such a precious gift. We will always want your baby to know that you love them and want what is best for them. You are so valuable to your baby and therefore you are valuable to us. We look forward to sending pictures, emails, and frequent updates so that we may share in the joys of your baby's milestones and growth. How precious for parents to share in the small joys of their child's life. We are excited to know you and we want your baby to know you too, if that is something that you are open to. We are open to arranging visits with your child.
Overall, please know that we are humbled by the brave decision you have made to consider adoption. We will always want to honor you in raising this baby and you will forever be special to us.
Dillon and Vanessa
