Your consideration of adoption is a brave act of love. We are in awe of your selflessness in this possibility. We humbly thank you for your consideration and time in learning about our family and our devotion to adoption.
If you should choose adoption and select our family to raise your child, we promise to instill within them that they are a chosen gift. Love will always be at the core of their existence. They will be cherished every single day of their life.
One of Susan's fondest childhood memories was being a Girl Scout and having her mother serve as the troop leader. In Girl Scouts there is a song called, "Make New Friends."
Make new friends,
But keep the old.
One is silver,
The other is gold.
A circle is round,
It has no end.
That's how long,
I will be your friend ...
We look at the relationship of a birth mother and an adoptive mother in a similar manner as this song. We'll tell your child that they have two mothers, one is silver is and the other one is gold. You will be their gold, giving them life, bringing them to the light of the world. This precious, selfless act will be a legacy that'll always be honored. We'll be their silver, raising and nurturing them in this world.
We'll share your role in their lives right from the start. We're happy and open to sharing pictures and email updates with you throughout their life. Visits may be something special we can explore together depending on your comfort level as well.
We have been happily married for almost 10 years and have always dreamed of having a big family. Our family doesn't feel complete. The best gift we can provide to our daughters is another sibling. Susan is the youngest of three children. During her childhood, she felt cherished by her older siblings. She appreciated having them as role models to look up to and admired them deeply. Murry is the older of two. He enjoyed having a younger brother to play with and to teach the ways of the world.
As parents, we feel well equipped for this opportunity. Our world is dedicated to raising our family. Our weekends are filled with special moments. We wake up to Murry making us his famous stuffed omelets and delicious buttery pancakes. Our family time is focused on bike rides, park outings, sidewalk chalk designs, dance classes, library visits, birthday parties, family cookouts, and attending church. We love being active and on the go. However, we also relish in lazy, cuddle days at home reading books or watching movies.
Murry's hard work ethic in his career has allowed Susan to stay at home. She's fully committed to raising children. The girls are now both in school all day, so her focus will be on caring for our new child. We're excited to have front row seats with all of our baby's firsts. Their first smile, giggle, rolling over, word, crawl, step, boo boo, and much more. Murry can't wait to walk through the door at the end of the day to hear all of the daily highlights. He is hands on with homework, bath time, and tucking them in at night with stories and goodnight kisses. He is our Hero.
We promise to give your child a life full of unconditional love, joy, adventure, and acceptance. We will be their safe harbor, always by their side, guiding them, cheering for them, and loving them to the moon and back.
Murry and Susan
