Adoption has been in our hearts for a long time and we are so fortunate to finally have this opportunity to grow our family. We sincerely thank you for considering us to be your precious child's parents. Our home is waiting for the love and laughter of a little one. We know we will be great parents and we are excited for the adventures to come!
We love to spend time at our island home, cooking out with friends, and hanging out at the beach or on the boat. Grant is an experienced surfer and we enjoy traveling to surfing destinations and experiencing the beach life in other areas, both in the United States and other countries. Grant shapes surfboards and paddleboards in his spare time. We both like being on the water either boating or paddleboarding. Holly is a cyclist and she enjoys riding with her friends and taking weekend biking excursions or biking in local fundraising events. Holly also enjoys painting artwork and murals for friends. She already has ideas for our child’s room! We both participate in 5K’s, paddleboard events, and fishing tournaments to raise money for various charities. We relax by watching Netflix, going to the movies, cooking weeknight dinners together, or going out to eat. We have an active and social lifestyle and we can hardly wait to see how a child will enrich our lives.
We are more than ready to be parents and we are so privileged to have the opportunity to adopt a child into our family. We often talk about how a child will enrich our relationship and how much fun we will have being parents. We promise to love our child, nurture them, support them in their growth, and help them to find their own identity. We want them to strive to be the best they can be, at anything they do. We will support them in every way we can and give them the opportunities we had and more. Through our parents and friends, we understand the responsibilities of parenting, yet we will develop our own unique parenting style as we raise our own child through the help of family and friends. We believe it "takes a village to raise a child" and we are all anxiously waiting for the opportunity to raise our child. We promise that they will have a great life, full of the love and support from us and our family and friends.
We have always considered adoption as our opportunity for family growth. Holly’s mother and cousin were both adopted and they were given the privilege to grow up in a loving, supportive, and nurturing environment. They are both very thankful to have had the experience of adoption and are thrilled that we have decided to receive the same blessing. Holly’s mother never knew her birthparents but, later in life, she wanted to know her history after her adopted parents had passed. She stated, “They will always be my Mom and Dad, but I would like to have known my past and why I was adopted.” We hope to have the opportunity to answer those questions for our child. We want them to feel the tremendous love that adoption means, both from the birthparents and adoptive parents. What an unbelievable gift adoption would be for us and what a story we would tell!
