Adoption Successes

Dzung and Deborah

Becoming parents is a step that we have been looking forward to since we found each other.  We met in graduate school, and knew after only a short time of being together that this was the perfect fit.   Dzung grew up in Pennsylvania as one of 10 kids – an amazing family that has grown to include spouses and 13 nieces and nephews.   We cannot wait to introduce our children to this group of cousins!  Deb grew up in southern California with a smaller immediate family, but with an extended family of grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins that is very close knit.  After finishing our degrees, we made our home in beautiful sunny California, which afforded both job opportunities and the ability to be very close to Deb’s family.  Everyone in our family is so excited to welcome our future children and surround them with love and support, regardless of how they come to be with us.

Gregory and Kristie

We promise to love your child always and forever and provide for them all the love, care, and fun we possibly can.  We cannot imagine how difficult this time is for you, but we hope and pray for God to give you His love and strength, and grant you the peace you need in making your decision.

Craig and Catherine

We live in Washington State right now with our two cats, Dodger and Tiger, but have enjoyed living all over the country with the military.  While moving every three to four years may seem tough, we believe it has made us more conscientious of different cultures and environments.  We have traveled to different parts of the world and seen many societies which have made us appreciate our family and the freedoms we have as Americans.  Our child would have the opportunity to travel often and see the diversities throughout the United States and abroad.

Gregory and Maya

Each day, though, we ponder the “if we had a baby”… sometime in the early morning when the birds are perking up, and we know if we had a baby, he or she would be greeting the day with us, smiling, gurgling, so happy to be, and to be with us.  Or, it could be at mid-morning, when all the mommies and daddies are out walking their precious packages, helping them get some sun, and fresh air.  Or, maybe after school helping them with their homework, or during the weekends spent canoeing on the lazy river, watching our child in his/her soccer game, baking cookies or doing art projects together on a rainy or snowy day, and enjoying a delicious dinner.  Or maybe at night, when we wish we could check in on our child asleep in his crib, smell his/her sweet “parfum de bebe”, and hear him/her breathe, and we give thanks for life on this planet, all because of the wonder of our child, the one you blessed us with. 

Bruce and Robin

The road is full of obstacles and challenges and we realize love is the most important ingredient in life.  We value a good education and will strive to guide, teach and provide every opportunity so he/she will be a well rounded confident, caring person.  We know raising a child to think well of him/her self, create, learn, love, make mistakes and forgive, will be a great challenge.  You can feel comfort in knowing that they will be brought up with a loving discipline, respect, know god, and have a multitude of opportunities.

Ryan and Carmen

 We strongly believe that honesty, integrity, faith, unconditional love and laughter are the key to our happiness.   Our son has been asking for a little brother or sister for as long as we can remember and we cannot wait to make that dream come true for all of us.  We cherish nothing more than spending time together as a family. 

Kevin and Jennifer

We are sure you are wondering about us.  We are a couple who is very much in love.  Love is the foundation of our house and we look to God to help us fully love each other more perfectly.  Our love and respect for each other grows as we face challenges together and in each day as we are reminded of how special the other is.  We began our relationship at the end of college, meeting each other while working as servers in a restaurant.  From that beginning, we stepped from our college years into our adulthood together as a couple.  After our beautiful wedding, we were open to starting our family.  Through a couple years of trying and two miscarriages, we always continued to believe children were in our future.  In our hopes for a baby, we decided adoption was the ideal situation for us. 

Michael and Deborah

If you are reading this letter, God has led you to at least explore the idea of allowing us to become Mommy and Daddy to the beautiful and extraordinary life inside you right now.

Steven and Jenna

We have much to be thankful for and give thanks to our Lord and Savior every day.  God is such an important part of our lives and will be an important part of our family’s life as well.  Sunday is a big day in our family.  We go to church, eat breakfast out and then go home to cook a traditional Italian dinner.  The men watch sports and also are in the kitchen helping us prepare the meals.  This is when we talk about our week and laugh at the funny things that happened.  After dinner is done and the kitchen is clean, we sit down and play games together.  It is our favorite day of the week and having a child share in our traditions as well as creating new ones, will only make it better.

Mark and Erin

We know that reading this letter is a difficult way for you to choose which parents will be the best fit to raise your unborn child.  We will do our very best to help you understand who we are as a couple.

Benjamin and Jennifer

We are best friends who met seven years ago and have grown closer together each and every day.  We cannot wait for the day that our lives will be blessed with a child. To share our life and values will be amazing!  We love our life at home and can’t wait to share it with someone else.  Home cooked meals, walks through nature trails, and lots of laughter are some of our favorites to name just a few.  Ben is a Press-Line Mechanic and takes great pride in his job and the work he does.  He works first shift and is looking forward to afternoons at home with our new addition! For fun, he enjoys sports, outdoor activities, and singing a good karaoke tune!  Jen is a registered nurse and is an Assistant Manager at a plasma manufacturing facility.  She has worked there for almost ten years and loves her job!  She enjoys reading a good book, photography and trying out new recipes in the kitchen.   A weekend up north at one of our parent’s cabins or a visit to Ben’s mom in Costa Rica are just a couple of the great places we enjoy visiting.

William and Michele
John and I, our family and friends have already experienced the great joy and happiness adoption can bring. The adoption of our son Alex from Cambodia in 2001 was the one of the greatest experiences of our lives. Our daughter was three when our son came home at eighteen months old. Seeing them interact and get to know each other and grow into their current relationship was amazing. 
Madhu and Christine

Since we’ve been together we have always felt, good or bad, that everything happens for a reason. We believe this is what brought us to you. It is hard for us to imagine what you are going through as you make this decision, all we can do is admire your strength and the respect that you have for the life and future of your baby. Adoption is a topic we discussed well before marriage; it has always been part of our family plan. We now know each child we will parent will come to us through this gift. We appreciate you taking the time to get to know us.

Jonathan and Jamie

You hold the key to unlock our dreams, the miracle of a baby and the gift of life.  We admire your love and strength for considering an adoption plan for your baby.  We pray God gives you strength, wisdom and peace in the remarkable decision you are considering.  We would like you to know our family understands adoption first hand.  Jamie was adopted at birth.  Her experience as an adopted child has shown us we especially have the ability, love and understanding it takes to become an adoptive family.

Jason and Stefanie

When thinking of a birth mother, courage, hope, love and trust come to mind.  We would be overjoyed for you to consider us as parents.  You should know that I am adopted myself, and these words, The Adoption Creed, have blessed my life.   “Not flesh of my flesh nor bone of my bone, but somehow miraculously my own.  Never forget, not for a minute, you didn’t grow under my heart but in it.”  This is the basis of our intentions, and adoption is our legacy.   As parents, we promise to make the best possible decisions for your baby, as he/she becomes ours.  We feel we are in an ideal situation to meet your baby’s needs, and we promise to provide him/her our very best love and care.  We’d also LOVE twins!

Kurt and Jennifer

Our family has been forever touched by adoption already.  Many years ago Jen’s sister was adopted from South Korea.  About ten years later one of her brothers had a son with his girlfriend when they were very young and that baby was adopted.  As a couple we have had plans to adopt since before we were married.  We feel it is our responsibility as adoptive parents to honor the birthmother and celebrate the baby’s heritage in any way we can; we know from our family history how important it is to everyone.

Sisin and Wan-Ying Wendy

Love is a gift.  It is a precious gift that we are ready and excited to give to your child.

Michael and Alena

It takes a loving heart like yours to do what is best for your child. Our promise to you is to love your child unconditionally, to always be there for her, to provide her a safe and financially secure home based on Christian faith, and to encourage her to reach her highest potential.  We hope our promise will bring comfort and peace to you in making your decision.

John and Suzanne

Collette was so excited when Suzanne was pregnant with a second child.  She couldn’t wait to be the big sister, even when teased about having to change poopy diapers.  Needless to say when we lost the child we all were heartbroken. Collette is as excited as we are about the adoption of her baby brother.  Every night she prays for his safe-keeping and speedy delivery to us.

Christopher and Lory

We are an active, fun-loving family and try something fun or different every weekend.  We go to all sports games, and enjoy anything involving animals, concerts, movies, the beach, surfing and traveling, especially to our favorite destination which is Hawaii.

Patrick and Kristen

You are an extraordinary woman. Planning the future of your baby in someone else’s home is one of the most selfless and loving decisions a mother can make for her child. We realize this is perhaps the most difficult decision you have ever been faced with. Few words are adequate to describe the beauty of what you are about to do. We hope that by reading our profile, your courage, hope, trust and tremendous love for your baby will find their fulfillment in us.

Franciscus and Melanie

Wow…. How do we summarize our crazy love for God, family, food, travel, our daughter and one another in one paragraph?  We are Frank and Melanie and adoption has been a wish for us both, even before we knew each other. We feel blessed to connect with you in this way. We would be honored if you would take the time to get to know us better by reading our letter. Regardless of your decision, you will be in our prayers and we wish God’s peace upon you.

Shawn and Kate

For our child, we dream that they may have some of the same opportunities and positive experiences that we had when growing up. We plan on raising them in a Godly home and teach them to develop a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ his Son. We currently belong to a non-denominational Christian church that has an amazingly vibrant children’s program. Both of us believe in strong family values and hope to instill them in our child. In order to do this we plan on having family meals in the evening and having a bed time routine with each parent.  We will teach a child to be respectful of others and to be a trustworthy person.  Our belief is that children need to have the freedom to make there own choices and mistakes, because you can’t learn if you never fail.  In whatever choices that our child makes we will be behind them and support them every step of the way. 

Roger and Lynette

We have always had a heart for adoption and we feel this is God’s plan for us. We have such a strong desire to share our hearts and lives with a child. You have a precious gift to offer a loving family and we are prepared to give your child all our love and resources to provide the best life possible.
