Wesley & Nikki
We are very honored you have taken the time to consider us as parents for your child. We are a family oriented couple who have always dreamed of one day being parents. We know this may be a difficult time for you and we will be praying for you during this process. We are ready to accept the responsibility to love, care, and become devoted parents.
Our Leisure Time
It has been said, "Balance is not something you find, it's something you create." We make a conscious effort to create balance in our lives. We travel as often as possible, whether it be a short trip to the beach or a plane ride to one of our favorite destinations. One of the most fun trips we take is to the family farm where we enjoy fishing, hiking and trail riding. We look forward to exposing this child to different cultures and settings. We love our extended family and friends and try to get together as much as possible. We enjoy hosting outdoor barbecues, family game night, or snuggling on the couch to watch movies in our home theater. On the weekends you can find us golfing, bowling or playing Dance Central on XBox with our nieces and nephews. We enjoy watching baseball, football, and basketball during their respective seasons and are big hometown supporters. Spending a quiet evening home together watching our favorite recorded TV shows is another way we like to unwind. We can't wait to share our lives with a child and introduce them to all of our favorite activities.
Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other
Nikki About Wesley: Wesley is one of the best things that has happened in my life. His kindness and unconditional love makes me want to be a better person. I love that he is very caring, attentive, supportive and will do anything he can to take care of his family. He works hard to make sure his family is provided for. After a hard day of work he is always able to make me laugh and forget about my stressful day. Wesley has all the qualities of what a man should be and I am certain he will make a wonderful father.
Wesley About Nikki: Nikki is one of the strongest women I know. Her strength inspires me. There are so many things about Nikki I admire. She is smart, funny, and has a huge heart. Her love is undeniable to me and her family. One of the qualities that I love about Nikki is she knows when to be serious and when to be lighthearted. I find myself watching her taking care of our nieces and nephews and I know one day she will be a great mother.
What It Means to Become Parents
Being a parent is one of the most fulfilling jobs a person can have. As a parent you are the guiding force and protector of another human being. We want to create an environment where a child feels there is no place like home. We will provide a stable home environment filled with love and laughter. We will love unconditionally through the innocence of infancy, the struggles of adolescence, and the joys of adulthood. We, as parents, will provide a nurturing environment where a child will be free to be themselves.,p>We are most looking forward to all the first in a child's life like their first words, first steps, and their first day of school. What fun it will be to dye Easter eggs, carve pumpkins, and make Christmas cookies for Santa. We can't wait to create our own bedtime rituals of reading bedtime stories, goodnight kisses, and looking under the bed for imaginary monsters. It is a true blessing to watch someone develop into who they will become. We understand there will be challenges, but we know together we are strong and ready to overcome any obstacles during this new journey. We look forward to watching this child's emotional and physical milestones and becoming a self-sufficient, productive adult.
Our House and Neighborhood
We live in a Texas neighborhood where we can enjoy a small-town atmosphere while being near the big-city conveniences. Our home is our oasis where we can escape from the everyday hustle and bustle of life. Our community is filled with diverse families with kids of all ages. We are located on a cul-de-sac which is perfect for the kids to play outside. Our four bedroom home, with dedicated playroom and media room, provides a fantastic environment for a child to grow.
The neighborhood recreation center is perfect for social gatherings. Our park includes a pool with a splash pad and waterslide. There are two other parks less than a half mile away. During the summer, we have family food truck nights where the neighbors gather for dinner. Our neighborhood is known for our Halloween celebration where we entertain our children and others from surrounding communities. One of our Christmas family traditions is driving around the neighborhood with our nieces and nephews to view the beautiful decorations and lights. Our annual Christmas party is complete with snow, face paintings, and of course a visit from Santa. We enjoy entertaining our family and friends with regular barbecues and crawfish boils and we always have a great time. The elementary school is less than two miles away and is in a great school district. Our neighborhood is close knit and we absolutely love that.We are a short drive away from the symphony, ballet, museums, sporting events, shopping, zoo, and beaches.
Our Extended Families
Our family is ready to love this child unconditionally and can't wait for us to bring baby home. Both our parents live less than 30 minutes away and are very active in our lives and will continue to be very active in our baby's life.
Wesley's parents are retired and just celebrated their 56th anniversary. Their favorite job is being grandparents and great-grandparents to their grandchildren. Wesley has three siblings and is the youngest of the family. Wesley's family enjoys spending holidays together and having fun family board game nights. Wesley's fondest memory is cooking with his mother.
Nikki's mom is a retired educator and her dad owns an engineering company. Being retired, Nikki's mom will be assisting in early childcare and bringing first-hand guidance into the learning process. Nikki also has three siblings. We also love spending time at Nikki's family farm doing activities like fishing, hay rides, and roasting marshmallows on a campfire.
Together we have 14 nieces and nephews ranging in age from 5 months to 31 years. With this wide range we experience anything from changing diapers to being mentors. We are both very active in our nieces and nephews lives. We enjoy spending our time on the weekends supporting their activities and taking them on fun summer vacations.
From Us to You
We are so appreciative you are taking the time to get to know us better. We understand this is one of the most important decisions in your life and we want to make sure we are providing you all of the knowledge about our lives. We also would like you to know we are here for any support you may need. We are forever grateful you might give us the opportunity to become parents.
We have been together for seven years and married for five and a half years. We have always been involved in the lives of our nieces and nephews and supporting them is how we met. Our nephew's YMCA basketball game is where we first saw each other. Our first date was at the beach and still to this day the beach is our favorite place to spend time with each other and we can't wait to share this special place with a child. After our wedding we talked about expanding our family. We wanted to adopt along with having a child naturally. Unfortunately, we went through infertility and realized God had a different path for us to grow our family. We are fully committed to this path and can't wait to open our home to your child.
We will be working parents with lots of flexibility in our work schedules. During the early years we are blessed to have Nikki's mom, who is a retired teacher, care for this child when we are both working. Since this child will not be in daycare we plan on enrolling them in age appropriate classes to help develop social skills. Our work schedules will allow one of us to always be able to drop off and pick up from school and start homework once the formal educational years begin. With this flexibility Nikki envisions herself as the classroom mom, PTA parent, and field trip chaperone. Wesley envisions himself coaching this child's sports team and being able to join him/her for lunch at school.
We can't wait to incorporate a little one into our world. Education will be a priority in our household. We will also make sure we not only teach good morals and standards, but also practice them. We see building sand castles on the beach, teaching them how to swim, and Wesley teaching us about the constellations in the night sky at our favorite place. We would love to travel with them and introduce them to a world of many possibilities. Wesley is excited to share his love for fishing and Nikki is ready to start baking with them.
We are very close to our families, so they will be spending lots of time with us. Our family is super excited to welcome a new baby into our family. They have so much love to give and are ready to help instill our values, Christian beliefs, and help them become the best person they can be. We do believe it takes a village to raise a child and they are all in. They will also have a few cousins to grow up with.
We are willing to meet with you if you would like to meet us in person while you are making your decision. After your child is placed, we will send letters and pictures so you are able to see how much your child is loved and see their growth if you so choose. We are also open to reasonable communication by email. We do believe knowing where you come from is important and would be happy to share any information we know about you and your family to your child if you would like us to. Please know we will make sure your child knows how remarkable you are. They will know you gave us the best blessing anyone could have given us and the tough decision you made was based on the love you have for them.
Thank you for considering us as potential parents. We promise to give your child a loving, nurturing, stable, and safe home. We will continue to keep you in our prayers as you go through this difficult decision.Sincerely,
Wesley & Nikki
