David & Susan

What great joy that you are giving us by taking the time to read our profile as this must be a very difficult decision for you. We have had so many wonderful experiences in our lives and our new experiences would be enriched further if we had those to share with your child. Being parents is a dream that we would love to fulfill together with you!

Discussing Adoption

We Can't Wait to be Parents!

We plan to be open and honest with your child about their adoption in a variety of ways. We will let your child know early that he or she is adopted and how much they are loved. Most importantly, we will tell your child that our family was made possible through the difficult decision that you made for them. In addition, we plan to have an adoption book and share why we chose adoption.

We promise that we will love your child unconditionally and provide a loving, nurturing and fulfilling life. We will provide every educational opportunity possible as well as enroll your child in activities that interest them. Maybe playing the piano, playing baseball, dancing, golf, etc.

Throughout the years we look forward to sharing those special moments with you through letters and photographs so that you have the comfort and peace of mind that your child is being given every opportunity that you could have wanted for them.

Family Traditions

Winter Carriage Ride in New York

Our very favorite holiday is Christmas. Since Susan was a child, her father always decorated the outside of the house with a variety of lights and made everything just perfect. Now, we have continued the tradition and have taken it to a whole new level. Our outdoor display includes five songs synced to music with over 20,000 lights, and continues to grow every year! Many of the decorations were hand built, particularly our 10 little dancing trees we created from turning tomato plant cages upside down. One very special feature is Santa Claus' sled with a runway lit for his deer to take off into the sky to deliver presents. This is our way of sharing how much we love the holiday with our family and our friends. Every night, cars stop by and tune their radios to the music and watch the show – often there are a dozen or more cars enjoying the lights! We would love to share our joy for the holiday with your child!

Our Pets

Bentley Loves Boxes & Tissue Paper

We have always believed in having pets in our home. Since Susan was little, she had dogs, cats, hamsters and fish. Susan's Mom always encouraged having pets and would willingly bring a pet into the home to make her children happy.

We are very nurturing family. Our pets are treated as a member of our family. If they become ill, they are taken to the vet immediately ensuring they are cared for in the best way possible.

Melody in Her Xmas Sled

Bentley and Melody are our tuxedo (black and white) cats. Both are very playful. Bentley retrieved balls when he was a baby and Melody loves to play hide and seek with us. David built our cats a seven-foot tall cat condo. They love to sit on the condo and watch “cat-TV” (looking at the birds, rabbits, and squirrels out the window). Both Melody and Bentley love Christmas as well. So much so, that Bentley and Melody sit under the Christmas trees and gaze at the twinkling lights.

Our House and Neighborhood

Home Sweet Home

Our house was designed by David because of his ability to imagine the rooms from a drawing. We lovingly watched every brick and joist be placed to create our home. There are four bedrooms, a family room, living room, den and movie room giving plenty of space for your child to play! There is also a covered deck for outside relaxing and entertaining where we have enjoyed many summer evenings relaxing and watching movies. Our level back yard is perfect for playing catch, soccer, catching lightening bugs and star-gazing.

Our House Decorated For Christmas

The neighborhood is in a golf course community with many children to play with. There is a large outdoor pool at our Country Club within walking distance and since David is such a great swimmer and former lifeguard, he looks forward to teaching your child to swim like a fish! We have a walking trail entrance less than a mile away where we will walk and ride bikes with your child. In our neighborhood, there is a great sense of community and helping one another, so we know it will be a great place to raise your child.

In our surrounding area, we are very active. We love to attend professional and college sporting events such as football, hockey and baseball. There are also renowned museums, great amusement parks, ski resorts and a zoo/aquarium where we look forward to spending time with our family.

Our Extended Families

Headed to a Wedding with Susan's Mom and Brother

David has a brother and sister-in-law whom we regularly visit within our hometown. Our niece and nephew are so much fun to watch at birthday parties and holiday events -- particularly when opening presents! David's Mom and Dad live close and we often see them for dinner or family events. Every year, we take a trip to Florida with his parents and we are so excited to have your child join us on these trips – we would love to experience Disney World through your child’s eyes!

David with his Family at His Parents' 50th Anniversary Party

Susan has a brother and sister-in-law whom we regularly visit in Alabama. When we see them we love to just relax by seeing a movie or making a nice meal together. Susan has a very close relationship with her brother so they are always in touch – he even taught her some golf tips that she uses to improve her game! Susan's mom lives close by and Susan loves to spend time every weekend gardening or shopping with her. Susan's mom is thrilled to embrace and grandchild and will teach them all of her excellent gardening tips!

We also have a set of very close friends who have supported us to fulfill our lifelong dream of having a child. We have known them for a very long time and they are can't wait to help us welcome your child!

From Us to You

We have thought what it must be like for you to consider placing your child for adoption. While we can never truly understand your difficult decision, we are very grateful that you are taking the time to read our profile and learn more about us.

We have established our lives with successful careers and have a wonderful home and fun, life experiences to share with a child. As a couple, we have been together over 17 years and experienced life's joys and its sorrows. Throughout everything, we have always supported each other and leaned on one another for strength. To share our lives and our love with a child would be the most amazing gift!

Our families are what we treasure the most about our life and having a child to love and help them reach their full potential would be the greatest treasure of all! We have a passion for life -- we are the couple that tries new things. From vacation spots, food, sports, concerts or meeting new people, we embrace it all. We would like to share this with your child and allow them to learn from our experiences.

In choosing us, you are choosing a couple that is unique. David can figure out any problem – he is gifted at fixing everything around the house. Often, our neighbors call on him to provide advice and help with their houses. He has so much knowledge that he can't wait to pass on to your child. In addition, David is great at swimming and skiing -- he would love to teach him/her these activities.

Susan is extremely creative. At Christmas, she wraps presents with a passion, decorates cookies with magical flare and adorns Christmas Trees like a pro – neighbors have often asked which professional decorator did the work!! She is an avid scrapbooker and looks forward to showcasing your child’s experiences. Susan has a passion for music and dance and will embrace the opportunity to teach him or her how to play piano and flute or instrument of their choice – maybe just not the drums! Susan is very smart, good at math, creative writing and science and loves to learn new things. She will help your child flourish in school and various activities.

We believe in teaching a child everything that we can and providing an environment where he or she can learn, flourish and truly be everything that they want to be. This would be our greatest accomplishment in life by being able to nurture a precious little one to be a wonderful member of society. We would be so overjoyed to share and raise your child and share the home and life we have built together. We both have so much to give to a child, through our various life experiences at work, our travels, and the love and support from our family and friends.

We are so excited to begin our adoption journey and can't wait to welcome a child into our home! We are committed to providing you with letters and pictures so you can see how your child is doing. We hope that these may provide you comfort in knowing you placed your child with a loving family.

Thank you very much for reading our letter and considering us.

Wishing you all the best,

David & Susan
