Adoption in Our Lives
Waiting for You

We have always wanted children and after struggling for several years with infertility issues we knew adoption was the way to grow our family. We have gone through this process once with the adoption of our son, James. Holding him in our arms for the very first time was amazing and just confirmed we had made the right decision.

Being parents has been such a wonderful blessing. James has made our lives so much more fun and meaningful. He is full of energy and is always on the go. It is so amazing how quickly he is growing and learning. James is our big helper. He is very social and has never met a stranger. Whenever we go anywhere he always stops and talks to everyone he sees. He loves being outside and wants to go outside as soon as he gets up. He helps garden and has his very own tool box with tools so he can help fix things. He will be a great big brother and can’t wait to have a sibling.

We believe that God creates families in different ways and that adoption is a special gift. James has been such a blessing and has brought so much joy to our lives. We are super excited to be going through this process again and cannot wait to grow our family with the addition of another child!

Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other
Myra + Rich

Rich About Myra: Myra’s personality differs from my own in that she is more relaxed on a regular basis. It is one of the many thing that I love about her. She is able to stay calm in most any situation. She is shy at first meeting people, which is the exact opposite of me, but makes friends easily. She is much more trusting of individuals than I am and seems to always find the good in everyone no matter how hard she has to look.

Myra is very thankful to be able to be a stay-at-home mom. She enjoys spending her days with James, whether it is playing in the back yard or having a play date with friends. I love watching her interact with James. She always knows exactly what he needs and what to do. They always have lots of fun and we can’t wait to add another child to the fun. There are so many qualities of her personality that I wish I possess, which most likely explains why I love her so much!

Myra About Rich: Rich is the organizer and planner in the family. He is able to think things through and see the bigger picture. Rich is blessed to have a job that allows him to have a flexible schedule. He is able to attend some of James’ activities. Rich also has to travel some for work. Whenever we can, James and I will tag along and make it a mini-vacation. We enjoy traveling and it gives us extra family time and a chance to make more memories.

Rich is also a great teacher. One of the things I love about him is his patience when teaching or explaining something. I love his devotion to our family and that he is always willing to do anything for us. He puts in 110% into everything he does. He has a caring heart and is a great Dad. I am so blessed to have married such an amazing man!

What it Means to Be Parents

Being parents means loving a child unconditionally, being there for them all of their life, and providing a loving, supportive, caring, secure home environment. Putting a child’s needs first, giving them praise, guidance, structure, and consistency. It means providing for their needs and teaching them how to be responsible, loving, and respectful. It also means encouraging and helping a child become the person they were created to be. We will provide a child with the education opportunities a child needs to develop their talents and dreams and we will always be a child’s biggest cheerleaders.

There are so many thing we love about being parents, at every stage of a child’s life there is something new and exciting that a child is learning or doing for the first time. We never knew how much love we had to share until we held James in our arms for the very first time. We love watching him grow and seeing him become a talented, happy, outgoing person. We are sharing our love for family, fun, and life with James and cannot wait to add another child to our family.
