We were both fortunate to have parents that wanted more for their children than they wanted for themselves. They wanted their children to have a better education, better opportunities, and better life experiences than they had. That came at great personal sacrifice. That is unconditional love in the truest sense of the word. We recognize that it is the unconditional love that you have for your child that has brought you to consider adoption. Please know that we do not take this responsibility lightly.
Dale has worked in Air Traffic Control for the FAA for 14 years and Dana has been a Special Agent with the FBI for 15 years. We have worked very hard in our careers which has provided us with a lot of opportunities. But the one thing we have always maintained is that our number one priority in life is our marriage and our relationships with family. We have a wonderful marriage that we nurture and prioritize our dreams for raising our family. We value our careers but our true priorities in life are our relationships with our loved ones. The relationships we have with our family, our friends, and with each other are priceless. Ultimately, our top priority is the relationship we have with our children. Being able to share our love and our life with our beautiful daughter is such a blessing. But the opportunity to enable her to grow up with a sibling, and for us to complete our family, would be the most precious gift of all.
We promise to love and cherish any child we are fortunate enough to have join our family. We have been very blessed in the areas of love, family, friends, health, and quality of life. We were especially blessed with the adoption of our beautiful daughter, Fia. We were also very blessed to have had our precious daughter, Lainie, who passed away shortly after birth. We love each other and our daughters very much. We look so forward to growing our family once more through adoption.
Dana has spent the majority of her life caring for other people's children. She began babysitting at the age of 11 and continued throughout high school. During college and graduate school, Dana was a nanny for two children and later helped to care for a friend's child. We have many nieces and nephews including 5-year-old Natalee. She was unexpectedly born at 26 weeks while her mother (Dana's sister) was visiting. Due to the baby being in the hospital, Dana's sister moved in for several months. This gave us the opportunity to provide support to her and her husband while they went through a very difficult time in their lives. We also got to spend time with Natalee in the hospital, watching her grow and progress. We are very involved in Natalee's life and are her aunt/uncle and godparents. She now has a little brother that our daughter Fia just adores. They are all very close and love to play together.
Children bring us so much joy. We feel we can provide a child with a wonderful life full of love and opportunities. Should we be blessed enough to be chosen, we promise to provide letters, pictures, and emails. We want you to feel comforted knowing your child is loved and cared for in the life you chose for them.Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for considering us.
Dale and Dana
