Hello, we are Lisa and Josh. Our love story started when we were sixteen and has been going strong ever since. We have a relationship built on trust, honesty, laughter, but most importantly love. The only thing we feel we are missing is having children to share our lives with. We are so excited to grow our family through adoption and look forward to going through this journey together with you.
Our promise to you is that your child will grow up in a home with a solid foundation of love and understanding. Your child will always know the circumstances that brought him or her into our family, how it was the ultimate act of love for a mother to put her child in a position to have the best life possible. We promise that a day will never go by that your child won't feel loved by our entire family. We assure you they will be fully aware of their heritage and understand that it is the differences we share that make us stronger as a family. Your child will be given an education which will encourage them to excel and give them the opportunity to be whatever they want to be when they grow up. Most importantly though we promise that they will grow up in a safe environment that is full of love and that your decision to choose us as adoptive parents for your little one, will indeed be a decision that was worth making.
Our favorite vacation spot would have to be Hawaii. We had the opportunity to visit when Lisa's sister was stationed at an Army base in Honolulu and we went to return her son whom we watched over during her deployment. Our time there was just like you would imagine from television - spectacular beaches, beautiful wildlife, great hiking trails and snorkeling.
One of our most memorable experiences occurred when we came across a giant sea turtle hanging out on the beach. We were lucky enough to see it and get our picture taken with him.
While we love to travel to different places and spend time outdoors hiking and taking photos, we compare all our experiences to Hawaii and it makes us want to go back. It has always been a dream of ours to return to Hawaii once we have a child of our own as we feel there is so much to see, take in, and learn about the islands and the people who inhabit them.
We have always been culturally diverse when it comes to our friends, family, and hobbies, so discussing cultural diversity is something we feel very comfortable with. We have friends who come from various races and religious backgrounds, as well as family who have married and now have their own families which are culturally diverse. We also enjoy going to local festivals that celebrate the unique heritage's of various cultural groups. We feel it is important for people to recognize, what makes us different is what makes us special, especially when we come together over a common bond, and the common bond in our family is love. We know there will be questions that arise when people see a mixed family, but we feel that in leading by example and emphasizing the love that brought your little one into our life, we will show how beautiful our family is and how blessed we are to have one another. We know it is important to celebrate the culture that has come before us and be proud of where we come from. We will ensure your little one has every opportunity to celebrate their heritage while growing up in a family who accepts, respects, and loves individuals regardless of their cultural differences.
