Trevor & Anna
We are excited to open our hearts to one of the greatest gifts in this world. Your child will have the benefit of having a parent and grandparent who were also adopted. If you choose us to raise your child, we promise that he or she will grow up in a home filled with unconditional love and laughter. We hope that you consider us!
Adoption in Our Lives
Trevor: I was adopted at birth and grew up with a large, loving family. I always knew I was adopted and as I got older, I started asking my mom questions about my birth family. My mom was as open as she could possibly be. It turned out that my birth mother used to play on the same softball team as my mom but joined the military after giving birth to me. During the time when I was asking the questions my birth mother was stationed outside of the country and back in the 90's it was more difficult to search out people than it is today. Eventually my mom received my birth mother's email address, which allowed us to start communicating back and forth.
Right before joining the Air Force I had the desire to meet her. I was in my early 20's when we met at her house and it was an enlightening experience. It was nice looking through her photo albums noticing how I resembled her side of the family. I had so many questions that when I met her - Am I the way that I am because of her and my birth father or from the parents who raised me? One thing was for sure - our personalities are a lot a like and I also shared some physical traits from her side of the family - similar height, same color eyes, large feet, etc. I am a very inquisitive person so it was a pretty cool experience meeting my birth mom and getting all of my questions answered.
Anna also has a close family who has been touched by adoption as her dad and her aunt were also adopted. It is a perfect example of how a family can grow through adoption. We cannot wait to introduce a child to both of our families!
We love going on adventures with one another. When we have free time we like to explore our surroundings or hanging out with family at the lake. Our adventures while we lived in the United States were exploring other states in the Midwest or travelling to the Rocky Mountains.
We have a split family in the regards of where we would prefer to take a dream vacation. Anna prefers the warmth and beaches and Trevor prefers skiing and the snow. In the end, as long as we are with one another we are happy and excited to head out on new adventures.
Some of our fondest adventures have come after we moved to England. We are familiar with history but being able to see castles and ruins scattered across the country has been amazing. We have trips planned for Belgium, France, Germany and Italy in the next year or two. Everything is at our fingertips; we just need to figure out what we want to experience!
Our Professional Lives
For at least the next five years Trevor will be serving in the Air Force. In his professional life and career he has done many things to help support and lead Airmen to become better people. He is currently an instructor in his career field and jokes that it enables him to mold the young minds of Airmen that will eventually take his place so he can retire. Trevor has always been in some sort of service related job in his life and will more than likely find a new passion serving others again after he retires.
Anna previously worked in non-profit organizations that were involved in education, assisting people or assisting animals. She is currently a stay-at-home wife who enjoys taking our dog Turbo on walks, going to the gym, and taking care of the day-to-day activities in the home. This allows us to spend additional free time with one another when Trevor gets home from work. Once we are parents Anna will be a stay-at-home mom until the child/children are in school. At that time she is excited to get back into working in a fundraising department for non-profit organizations hopefully doing something animal related like working at a humane society or animal shelter.
Our House and Neighborhood
We live in a residential suburb in England. We have a four-bedroom home with a cozy backyard surrounded by a privacy fence.
Our favorite room in our house is our living room where we relax together in the evenings. Our home is surrounded by other houses and townhouses. There are quite a few kids in our neighborhood of all the various age ranges.
Every morning when Anna walks our dog on the numerous walking paths in our neighborhood, she sees parents and grandparents walking kids to the various schools in the area. When we go on a walk or run it is inevitable that we pass by one of the many parks around our house. They are filled with kids playing and parents looking on and chatting away with one another.
In a couple years when we retire and move back to the Midwest we will be in the same city as Anna's family. We will be right in the mix of things when it comes to those impromptu dinners and movie nights.
Our Extended Families
We both have large extended families that we care about deeply. Both of our families have experience when it comes to adopted children. Trevor was adopted at birth and both Anna's dad and aunt were adopted as well. Both of our families are very welcoming and excited about us adopting a child.
When we visit Trevor's family for a holiday there is always a moment of everyone going outside to play football, cornhole or a game of horseshoes. Once the nieces and nephews go to bed there is always a game of cards that is played with the remaining relatives.
Anna's family gets together more often because they're all in the same city. It is common for them to get together for an impromptu dinner and/or movie night. Everyone in her family support each other and participate in events that our nieces and nephews are involved in.
We are the ones who are living away from the family but that hasn't stopped us from getting together with one another. All of our immediate family members have visited us while we've been in England and we have traveled back home to visit them. Even though we live 1000's of miles away we still find a way to stay close to our huge family even if it can only be through video chat. In a few years we look forward to retiring and moving back to the Midwest where our families live.
From Us to You
Thank you so much for giving us this opportunity to introduce ourselves and tell you about our family. We are Trevor and Anna. We are grateful that you are considering an adoption plan for your child and you are taking the time to learn more about us.
We have been married for seven years and continue to love one another each day more than we did the last. We treat our life as our big adventure and were excited to share our love with a child. Unfortunately, we are not able to have children ourselves even though the doctors said we are/were healthy adults. The hardest thing that we have had to deal with in our relationship and life is not being able to have a child. The easiest decision after that point was deciding that adopting a child was the best path for us to become parents.
We can only imagine that this is a confusing and difficult time for you while you are trying to figure out the best option for you and your precious baby. We hope that you are loved and feel the same support that our family is providing us. We promise to cherish and love your child with our hearts and souls and to provide a safe and happy home. We promise to give your child all of the opportunities that we can provide. We promise that your child will be surrounded by family that will welcome him or her with open arms.
We live in a beautiful town in England and plan on retiring in the Midwest in about five years. The town we currently live in is very quiet and family friendly. There are five parks within walking distance in our neighborhood as well as endless trails to take strolls or jog. When we retire we will be moving to the same town as Anna's family. All of Trevor's family live within two hours of our future home. Before moving to England, we spent every holiday with family, vacationed with family, and included each other in our daily lives. Your child will be embraced by a large extended family including grandparents, aunts, uncles, and many cousins.
Because Trevor was adopted, we have the benefit of his parents providing us mentorship as we begin our own adoption journey. Not only was Trevor adopted, but so were Anna's dad and aunt. Our entire family is both supportive and thrilled that we are pursuing adoption and can't wait for the special day to arrive.
After the adoption we are elated to continue a relationship with you. We promise to send letters and pictures to you. We are also open to other forms of communication like emails, blogs, or social media. As future adoptive parents we are certain that the child will have questions that only you would be able to answer so keeping open lines of communication is very important. We would also be open to meeting up with you in the future as the child is growing up.
All children are gifts, and you would be giving us the greatest gift imaginable by adding to our family.
With all of our love,
Trevor & Anna
