Adventure is out there and we are looking forward to our next adventure... ADOPTION. We are excited about finding our missing family member through adoption and very grateful that you are considering this difficult choice. We invite you to look through our profile and hope that you see the love, silliness, and faith we have to share. Thank you for considering us to be a part of your family.
We are very excited to become parents. We believe parenting is raising a child - not just teaching a child how to read, tie his shoes or get dressed, but teaching them how to love, care, and respect.
We are excited to pass down family traditions to the child and see them have joy for the same events that give us joy.
We like the idea of guiding the child so they can make good decisions when we are not around. We like the idea of encouraging them when they experience failure and when they experience success. We want them to feel our pride, love and excitement for them.
We are excited for the everyday happenings of a family like bedtime stories, bathtime fun, snuggling with cartoons, cooking with them, making them breakfast on the weekend, helping them get dressed, helping them with homework, and going to all the sports games or plays or whatever they get involved in.
We know that not every day will be perfect, but our family will be perfectly imperfect and we will find joy in the off days and the good days. We will love the child on the good and bad days.
Stephanie About Derek: Derek is an amazing husband. He works hard for our family. Derek has a lot of energy and that comes in handy when we are with the nieces and nephews. He is so great with kids. He never yells, but he guides really well. He is supportive of me when I am having a bad day. He knows when I need a hug. He rubs my back when I grade papers or stay up late planning lessons. He is a great taste-tester even when I have a Pinterest fail. He goes along with all my crazy, crafty ideas and does all the handy-man work around the house. He makes me laugh to where I can't breathe. He spoils me with hand-written cards and date nights. I am lucky to have him and this child will be so lucky to have him as a dad!
