Dear Sweet, Expectant Mother,

“It is amazing how a new child can refocus one’s direction seconds after its birth. Everything falls into a feeling of ‘rightness’.” –David Bowie

Bravery leads to the spirit of self-sacrifice.

It may not always be easy, but it will always be worth it.

Respecting all life as a gift from God.

Trust your heart.

Happiness is when you feel good about yourself without feeling the need for anyone else’s approval.

Miracle of life brought into this world by you.

Opening your heart to reveal your beautiful soul.

Thankful that in God’s design, he planned it so your path crossed mine.

Holding your precious angel in our arms would be like heaven on earth.

Every story has an end, but in life, every end is a new beginning.

Remember, you are an incredible mother for making this tremendous decision and we promise to love and cherish every moment of your child’s life.

Adoption has been on our minds and in our hearts for nearly seven years. God has blessed us with two beautiful and healthy children, but we have always wanted to have more. Unfortunately, it is no longer attainable to have children naturally because Corri suffered from severe PUPPS during both pregnancies, which is an unbearable itchy rash consisting of welts on top of welts. Our dream of expanding our family could finally become a reality through adoption.

You are extremely special to us because you are choosing LIFE! We can never begin to understand how you are feeling, but rest assured, your sacrifice and decision are immense and will never be forgotten. Adoption would also mean the world to us because Brad grew up in and out of foster homes and was adopted by an abusive parent. He had a terrible childhood, to say the least, and we wish to adopt so that we can make a difference in a child’s life and give the loving respect and happiness that he wished someone would have bestowed upon him. As we journey through this process, our hearts swell with love and anticipation in hopes that we may be given the opportunity to hold your precious angel in our arms and to give them a life to the fullest.

Thank you for considering us,

Brad & Corri

Q&A

Do you have pets? If so tell us about them?

We have a 3-year-old Pomsky dog, named Diesel. He is a Siberian Husky and Pomeranian mix. He is the most gorgeous cuddliest ball of fur ever! He's very calm and great with the kids, he always wants to be used as a pillow and loves walking to the bus stop every day. He snorts if Brad doesn’t tell him goodbye before he leaves for work. It's hilarious how much attention he has to have. We also have a 45-gallon fish tank with a blue light-filled with glow in the dark fish.

When you have a 3-day weekend, what do you like to do?

Most Fridays we either set the tent up in the living room and have a family movie night or we set up our projector on the garage door and watch a movie outside on the air mattress then lay under the stars for a bit or have a board game night where each person picks a game. Saturdays are usually filled with our son's baseball game, our daughter's softball game, and Brad's cowboy reenactment skit. But when they don’t have games we travel down the mountain to enjoy a day of go-kart races, bowling or horseback riding, and a nice dinner out. Sundays are church then we pack a picnic and head to the National Park for an afternoon of hiking.

What do you hope to teach your children?

Honesty and respect are the values we mostly focus on instilling in the kids. Self-esteem is also major in our home, we have never allowed our kids to talk meanly to us or to each other. We love that they are very helpful. They want to help with dinner, dishes, and picking up their things without needing to be asked.

What will you tell your child about his/her birthmother?

It's important to us that we are completely honest with our child from the beginning regarding adoption. To us, it's not a secret or a shame. To us, adoption is a beautiful thing, and without a birthmother we would never be able to have another child, and it's important that he/she understands the level of LOVE and sacrifice that took on her behalf. We will teach how special their birthmother was, is, and always will be, to our family. It is also important that he/she know that their birthmother had and will always have an incredible amount of love for them.
