Adam & Renee
Hello! We are a happily married couple living in the Midwest with our son. Our home is filled with love, hugs, laughter, and silliness. We love visits to the park, eating ice cream, trips to the zoo, and creating song parodies. Being parents has been one of the most meaningful and happy experiences of our lives, and we would be beyond thrilled to welcome another child into our family.
Our Favorite Vacation Spot
We try to get out to Adam's family lake house as often as we can. It's a great nearby getaway where we can go to enjoy fishing, riding on the boat, sitting by the campfire, hiking, and spending time with family.
This past summer, our son was able to catch his first fish, and he was almost as shocked as mom to see a fish at the end of his line after being in the water for just a few seconds. During the winter, the lake looks beautiful covered in snow, and we loved to spend Christmas there with the family. If it's warm enough, we like to get out to go for walks, and we also enjoy skating on the lake.
There are so many things to do in the surrounding lake community such as visiting the local amusement park, playing at the nature center oriented specifically towards children, trail hiking that is family friendly. As our son has grown, he has really begun to love our visits to the lake house. We look forward to many future vacations here with our kids, and we can't wait to build more future memories here with our children.
Our pets are very important to us, and they are part of our family. We rescued our cat and our dog from local animal rescues. We are both avid supporters of adopting pets in need and giving them loving and caring homes.
Our cat, Pepsi, just like most cats, is very picky about the people she chooses to love, but she loves us. She has even done well with our son and shows a lot of patience with him as he has been learning how to pet gently. Pepsi really loves Adam, and she is especially affectionate and bonded with him.
We met our dog, Nero, when he was 3 months old. He is a very gentle black lab mix. Adam used to be more of a cat person, but he and Nero developed a special bond through their love of running. Nero, who is normally pretty quiet, can't help but bark with excitement whenever they head out for a run. Renee, too, is always good with a few good puppy cuddles on the couch or taking Nero for a walk at the park.
Why We Chose Adoption
While we were dating, one of our first serious conversations was on the topic of children, and we were both 100% in agreement that we wanted to have kids. Throughout the years we often spoke about adoption, and we were both very open to the idea of adopting. We both knew we wanted to be parents, and we knew that we would have so much love to give regardless of whether our children came to us biologically or through adoption.
When we were ready to start planning our family, we struggled to get pregnant. We eventually turned to fertility treatments, but none were successful. During fertility treatments we started to talk more seriously about adopting a child. We quickly started researching adoption to learn as much as we could about it, and we both agreed we would love to move forward with the adoption process.
Adoption has been the greatest blessing because it led us to our son. His birth mother's decision to choose us to be his parents has changed our lives in so many wonderful ways. We look forward to growing our family, and we cannot wait to meet our next child!
Without adoption we would not have the opportunity to raise children, and it is not something we take lightly. We know that adoption involves sacrifice, and we promise that we will give our best efforts daily to let our children know how loved they are, and how grateful we are to be their parents.
Our House and Neighborhood
We live in a major metropolitan area in Nebraska. Our home has a fenced-in backyard, which is one of our favorite places to spend time with our son. Our community is very family-oriented, and there are beautiful parks and lakes within walking distance of our home. We love taking our son out to watch him play and run around. He is very curious and loves other kids, so we look forward to when he has a sibling and can share his adventures on the playground. Our city has a great zoo that is frequently expanding and updating. The zoo includes a splash pad, a kid's adventure zone, an aquarium, indoor rain forest, and a new sea lion exhibit. We are members of the zoo, so we plan to take our kids regularly. Renee's mom took her and her siblings to the zoo often when they were younger, and she has a lot of fond childhood memories from those visits.
We also live close to a great pumpkin patch that has plenty of activities to do and things to see. Some of our favorite attractions are pig races, the pumpkin cannon, and the corn maze. We enjoy spending time there every fall, so we look forward to making new memories with our kids. Our neighborhood provides block parties during the summer, and there are many fun events in our city throughout the year. We really love living here, and we look forward to watching our kids grow up here.
Our Extended Families
Our families are the biggest supporters of our choice to adopt, and they were thrilled when our son came to us through adoption. I know they love our son just as much as we do, and the whole family agrees that he fits right into our lives as if he was always meant to be there. We know everyone is excited for us to add another member to our team, and we know that the grandparents look forward to spoiling another grandchild.
We are both very close to our families, and we get together for family dinners with Renee's side of the family every other Sunday night. During the winter, we watch football games and funny movies, or play board games. During the summer, we sit outside around a campfire, or we go swimming in the pool at Renee's mom's house. However, no matter the season, there is always a lot of food for everyone.
Adam's parents live in another state, but they are still within a short traveling distance. They are retired and live in a house that is located on a lake where there are plenty of fun activities for families like a theme park with rides, outdoor concerts, kayaking and boating. We try to get out there to visit them when we can, however, we have noticed that Adam's parents seem to visit us more often since our son came into our lives!
From Us to You
Thank you for taking the time to learn a little more about our family. We know that you have an incredibly difficult decision to make, and we know that this choice will be one of the greatest challenges you will ever face. All we ask is that you follow your heart. We know there are many couples out there who would do a fantastic being parents to your child, and ultimately the decision you make on who will raise this child will come down to what feels right.
We have been married for over four years, and we have been together for seven years. We live normal and quiet lives, but we also have fun together. We enjoy spending time with our son, family and friends, and our kids will always be an active part of our lives. We can't wait to take them places with us, to see them grow together and we can't wait to watch them learn and experience the world together.
Becoming parents for the first time was an incredible gift and experience from the moment we first met our son. He has changed our lives in so many incredible ways, and we love being parents to this silly little boy who makes us laugh every day. We are so excited to meet our future child, and we can't wait to hold him or her in our arms for the first time. We know that it will be the start of another wonderful experience in all of our lives.
Both of us grew up with other siblings in our household, and we would love to see our children grow up together and hopefully build a strong bond throughout their lives. Some of our best memories are the ones that we shared together with our siblings, going on family vacations, playing games in the yard, water balloon fights, and walking to the neighborhood pool in the summer.
We would like to include you in our lives and the life of this child, as much as you feel comfortable. You will always be connected and have a place in our hearts and within our family. We will do our best to share time with you, and to send pictures and letters. We have contact with our son's birth family, and it has been nice to get to know them and understand a little more about our son's family background.
Our promise to you as potential adoptive parents of your child is that he or she will always be fully and completely loved. There will never be a shortage of hugs, and they will know they can come to us to talk about anything. We will always try to do our best for this child. We won't always be perfect, but we will work our hardest to be the best adoptive parents for this child.
We look forward to connecting with you, and we hope that you will consider us as possible adoptive parents for your child. We look forward to getting to know you, and learn more about you as well. Feel free to ask us about anything we may not have included in this profile or in this letter. We want you to feel comfortable about the decision to choose our family.
