Dave & Rebecca
We are very excited to pursue adoption, and are looking forward to the future that awaits us. Both of us have wanted to be parents for a long time, and hope to be able to make that dream a reality soon. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us and the potential life we can provide for your child.
Our Individual Strengths
We both possess similar strengths such as having compassion for others and a good work ethic. We consider ourselves to be dependable, and are very loyal to those close to us.
Since Rebecca was a child, her parents have always called her their "free spirit." She has an easy going personality and can get along with anyone. She has a taste for adventure in life, enjoying traveling and exploring new places. She loves to help people, which is one of the reasons that she is so dedicated to her job.
Dave has similar qualities. He can strike up a conversation with anyone, and has a sense of humor that can bring laughter to anyone in a room. He is very loyal to his friends and family, and always tries to be there for them when needed. Dave is very goal driven, and strives to achieve whatever he sets out to do.
Our Family Traditions
Rebecca's family routinely gets together to enjoy a musical and dinner with each other. They consider that a special time, as they all get to enjoy each other's company while doing something that they love. They also try to make it a point to take one trip a year with one another, whether it is just a day trip somewhere or a weeklong vacation.
Dave’s family enjoys getting together too, and spends time with each other in numerous ways. One such tradition that allows them to do so is their annual trip to participate in a 5k obstacle run. This is something that everyone from Dave’s mother to his youngest niece has done. It has created a lot of memories over the years, and is something that we look forward to every summer.
As for our lifestyle, we consider ourselves to be a well-rounded couple. We are both very dedicated to our careers, yet strive to achieve a balance outside of the workplace as well.
We are physically active, and enjoy numerous activities such as running, hiking, biking, and going to the gym. Spending time with family and friends is also very important to us. We make sure to plan time to get together with loved ones for holidays, birthdays, game nights, sporting events, etc.
We love to travel, and are always looking to create new memories by visiting various places. This can include going to a relaxing beach, scenic mountain, or a new city. All of these types of trips appeal to us, and allow us to keep variety in our travels.
Our House and Neighborhood
We just moved in to our first house together in April of 2019 after 7 years of living in a townhome. We decided it was time to look for a place that we could raise a family, and our new house is a prefect place for that. We built the home in a housing plan that includes numerous young families. Everyone has been very welcoming to us in the neighborhood, which we are very thankful for. The community even has its own Facebook page where people can reach out to each other with questions about the community, and plan events for get togethers. We look forward to building lasting friendships with our neighbors.
Our house is close to a quaint town with various shops and restaurants. It has a beautiful park with walking trails and a pool, which is where we hope to spend many summer days with our child. We are also only a short drive from a major suburban area with everything that you could want available to you. Lastly, we are only about a 35-minute drive from the city, where we like to see musicals, go to museums, concerts, and sporting events. In short, the area we live in provides numerous options for us depending on what we are looking to do, which is why we were drawn to it.
Our Extended Families
We are from small towns, and grew up not far from each other. We each left the area to attend college, but returned to where we grew up so that we can be close to our families. Both of us have always made our families a priority, and living where we do allows us to continue to do so.
Rebecca enjoys spending time with her family in numerous ways, such as shopping, going to movies and musicals, eating at restaurants, or just hanging out at various family member houses. Dave's family likes to get together by having family barbecues by the pool, or in the colder months just having dinner inside. They also enjoy attending running races together, golfing, or playing with the family dogs.
Both of our families will fully welcome an adopted child. Rebecca's family already has several adopted children, including Rebecca's niece who was adopted 11 years ago. They are extremely happy that we have decided to adopt as well, and Dave's family feels the same exact way. They all know how important it is to us to have the chance to be parents, and are just as excited as we are to have that happen.
From Us to You
We have been together for 10 years, and married for almost seven years. Both of us have always wanted to have the opportunity to raise a family, and that was one of the many qualities that attracted us to each other. Unfortunately, this did not come easily, as we have struggled with infertility during our marriage. This includes several unsuccessful attempts at both IUI and IVF procedures, and also a miscarriage approximately one year ago.
The miscarriage was by far the hardest part of the process. After years of unsuccessful attempts, we both were beginning to accept that it may never happen. Then suddenly out of the blue we found out that we were pregnant. The joy we felt that day was almost indescribable, and is something that both of us will remember for as long as we live. It was the greatest of gifts that either of us could have ever imagined at the time, and the period that followed was one of the happiest of our lives. Sadly, this did not last. While finding our we were pregnant was one of the best days we have ever head, the miscarriage was exactly the opposite. It is hard to describe the feeling of wanting something for so long and finally having it happen, only to have it taken away just as quickly.
Going through these struggles have been the hardest part of our relationship, but one that has made us that much stronger together. Throughout it all, the faith and support that we have in each other has never wavered.
We are still hopeful to raise a child together, and have looked into various options to allow us to do so. Rebecca has some understanding of adoption, as both her sister and cousin have adopted children. She also has a close friend from college that has adopted as well. She saw the process unfold, and the happiness that it has brought to all involved. Because of that we felt that it would be a good option for us too.
As we have learned further about how adoption works, we have become more sensitive and understanding to the possible desire for communication, both from the birth parents and the child. Therefore, we wanted to include that we are open to sending letters and pictures on an annual basis and are also open to a visit in the early years of the child's life.
We have both been very blessed. We have the support of each other, our family, and our friends. The only thing that is missing is having the chance to raise a child together. In that regard however, we are extremely grateful that the adoption process is available to us to help fill that void, and that birth mothers such as yourself are willing to possibly provide such a tremendous gift to couples like us. If chosen, we can assure you that we will raise the child in a loving home. This is something that we both have wanted for so long, and it is not anything we take lightly. We truly thank you for considering us, and wish you the very best in this selection process.
