Brad & Erin
We are a loving young couple that believes adoption is a wonderful gift to receive. Thank you for spending the time looking over our profile, we know this decision can be difficult. We want you to know that we will be the best parents that we can be to your baby. We are excited to go on this journey with the brave mother that chooses us.
We will do everything we can to educate our child on their adoption and their birth parents. Our child's adoption story will be something that is cherished by all of us. If our baby comes from a different ethnicity than us then we will educate ourselves on their heritage and pass that knowledge onto our child. We will make sure to bring cultural diversities into our family traditions and we will embrace our child's background.
We will also teach our child about our backgrounds and the family members that are no longer with us. We both love to learn and pass that education onto younger generations. Education is important in our family and, while both of us have college degrees, we realize education is more than books and schooling. Getting to know ones self and where he or she comes from is equally important and we will do everything to provide and educate our child. We will help our child know their past and help them use that knowledge to grow and turn into an amazing individual.
Our Individual Strengths
We are both strong in so many different ways. We ground each other and make a well-rounded couple.
Erin - I am a planner, which can be a good thing and a bad thing! Before I met Brad, I had to have everything planned out. However, Brad has taught me that not everything needs to be planned — and when times come up where not everything goes as it was planned out, that's OK! I am a very compassionate and caring person. I am very organized and have a place for everything (even if I don't remember where I put it)!
Brad - I don't stress about anything and it drives my wife crazy! I work hard and play hard and enjoy life. I want to share my passions for life and the activities I enjoy with a child. I can learn and adapt to any situation and work on and fix anything. I enjoy how my wife keeps track of all the events and plans everything, as it really keeps me on track. We are definitely opposites, but we are perfect for each other!
Why We Chose Adoption
Building our family has been a long journey. We have wanted to welcome a child into our lives since before we were even married, However, after a year of trying to conceive with no luck we sought the help of a fertility physician. This is when we found out that we are unable to have biological children. Although this broke our hearts, we still dreamed of becoming parents. As we began to look into other ways to build our family, adoption quickly became the choice for us. We have had many conversations and consulted with friends that have also grown their families through adoption. We are ready and very eager to start our own adoption journey. We know we will make amazing parents and are ready to provide love and a great home for the baby. We have both always wanted to be parents, and we are so excited to begin this next chapter of our lives together!
Our House and Neighborhood
We live in a great community in the suburbs of Kansas City. Our community is very diverse with people from different cultures and backgrounds. Our child will go to a wonderful school district and we will be involved in activities. There is an elementary school very close to our house that is currently building a early childhood development center that we are very excited to have. We have great, supportive neighbors that will all be very welcoming of our child.
We live in a three-bedroom, two-bathroom house that has plenty of room for a child to grow and play upon two acres. Our house is located just outside of city limits in the country. Our favorite room to spend time together in is the family room, this room is the center of our home and where we wind down at night. The baby's room will be located right next door to the master suite. Brad loves to spend time in one of his out buildings working on cars and Erin enjoys spending time in the flower garden.
There are always things to do as a family within our community that are child friendly. There are very safe and clean parks within 10 minutes from our house that we enjoy visiting. We love to spend outside of the home and trying new things within our wonderful city.
Our Extended Families
Our extended families are beyond excited to help us welcome this baby into our home. All of our immediate family lives within 45 minutes of us and we have extended family throughout the country.
Brad's family is more "traditional." Brad's parents are amazing grandparents and very involved in our nieces and nephew's lives. Brad has a sister with a wonderful husband and three awesome children that we love spending time with.
Erin's family is a bit more complicated. Erin's parents were divorced when she was very young and her mother remarried. Erin has an older step-sister, older brother and younger half-sister. This will be the first grandchild on Erin's side of the family. Erin has an amazing aunt who adopted her son and has raised him to be a fine young man and father.
Through the years Erin has made some lifelong wonderful friends whose children all call us "Uncle Brad" and "Aunt Erin." Erin's best friend is her brother's ex-wife and we are both very close to her son and take him on special vacations.
Holiday traditions within our families mainly revolve around food and making sure the children have fun. We often host both of our families together at the same time for holidays. It is always great to spend this time with family and be thankful for what we have.
From Us to You
We would like to start out by saying thank you — thank you for taking the time to read this letter and, most importantly, thank you for having the strength and courage to consider this most selfless act. We understand that this decision does not come easily and that you have many things to consider as you decide whether or not adoption is the right path for you and your baby.
We are Brad and Erin, we are both working professionals with lots of love to give a child. We have been unable to conceive on our own and know that there is a reason for this because we are firm believers that EVERYTHING happens for a reason. We believe adoption is the path we are meant to be on, and we look forward to growing our family!
Erin is an oncology nurse and loves her job. She works hard at providing great care to her patients and support to her coworkers. Brad is in sales within the fire sprinkler industry. Brad strives to produce fair and accurate quotes to consumers within the industry. We have both been in our careers for an extended amount of time and have no desire to change.
We have been together for seven years and married for four years. Our relationship is a little different compared to the "traditional" relationship. We met on Match.com and got married in Las Vegas. We are totally different people and believe that opposites definitely do attract. Brad keeps Erin grounded and is her rock. Erin keeps Brad in line and makes sure plans are made, presents are bought and bills are paid.
We are very family oriented and have many close friends who are all very excited about the thought of us starting a family. This will be an addition to the many children in our group of friends that we get together with frequently. This will be the first and very welcomed grandchild on Erin's side of the family. On Brad's side of the family this will be the fourth grandchild and the nieces and nephew are ecstatic about the thought of a new baby in our family. This child will definitely be loved.
We are more than willing to send letters and pictures of this precious gift as they grow. We are also willing to have phone calls and even in person visits if this is what you are wanting. We want you to be as informed as you want to be and we will provide any and all support that we can to make this transition easier for you.
We will educate our child on their heritage and would love any information/help that you can provide. We also believe in letting the child choose how involved they are within the church, if this is something that you are passionate about please let us know and we will take that into consideration.
Our home is located in a great school district surrounded by many family friendly parks and activities. Our neighbors are very supportive and caring families. Our home is our forever home that we love and want to share with your child.
Thank you for your consideration. We understand this is a difficult decision.
Patiently waiting to open our hearts -
Brad & Erin
