We can’t wait to start on this journey toward parenthood and are excited to share our lives and families with a child. We look forward to playing silly games, going on road trips and reading bed time stories. We are humbled to walk this path with you and admire you for your strength and courage along the way.
We live a low-key, laid-back lifestyle. We love being outside and consider it our happy place. Our favorite activities include taking our boat out on the lake, camping, hiking and hanging out with our family, friends and dogs. We look forward to going to the mountains and lake every chance we get – and do so often!
From the beginning, we promised ourselves that we would invest our time and energy into obtaining as many experiences as possible! That could be as simple as finding a nearby town with a fun, local festival or as grand as visiting a new country – like Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Croatia. We think it’s important to explore the world around you, near and far, and learn from it.
We like to try new things together: cooking meals, archery classes or berry picking. As well as old favorites: going for evening drives on dirt roads, college football games and home improvement projects. And, of course, we love spending time with our two sweet Labradors, Leia and Huck.
We’re both avid readers. We enjoy time together at home, curled on the couch with our pups and getting lost in a book. Sometimes we decide to read the same one so we can discuss, or choose a book together and read aloud. We cannot wait to be parents to this child, where we can explore and learn together – surrounding ourselves with adventures, the great outdoors and books.
As future parents, the thing we look most forward to is watching a child grow into just the person he or she is meant to be. Our greatest hope is that your child feels supported, loved and encouraged as they discover their own path in life. To help them on that journey, these are our hopes and promises for this child:
