From Us to You

Warm Hellos from Clint and Dana,

We invite you to read our story, but before you do, we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for considering us. When we started this journey of adoption, we hoped to find a birth mother who was strong and courageous and we are truly blessed to have found you. Though we cannot begin to understand what you are going through at this time, we truly appreciate your strength as you travel through this journey of adoption. We do not always know what God’s plan is, but faith and love is what has brought us together.

We cannot thank you enough for giving us this wonderful gift. We have dreamed about this day again and cannot believe that it’s finally within our reach. We hope that you find comfort knowing that your child will be raised in a loving and supportive home. We have huge hearts and lots of love to give. We will share our love with your child each and every day and will support him/her in everything they do. We will strive to provide the best life for them and give them the childhood that both of us had; safe, loving, stable, and supportive.

We truly believe that we are each other’s soul mate. After less than a year of dating, we knew we wanted to spend forever together; with a proposal in the middle of a field, it couldn’t be more fitting for the start of the next chapter of our life together. We play an active role on our family farm where we spend quality time together; from rounding up the cattle, to harvesting the crops, we truly feel that our marriage and lifestyle is like no other.

We were blessed to add a perfect, little, baby boy into our lives when we adopted Parker in 2013. He is the joy to our lives and he can’t wait to be a big brother. We never knew how much we could love until him and we know this will be the same for your child.

We both hold stable and secure employment. Clint works for the family farm, his schedule allows him to be flexible and take his little helper(s) with him from time to time. Clint is a great father, he is a stand-up guy; you can truly count on him for anything. Dana works in Human Resources, she truly enjoys people. She is fun loving, trusting and has a great sense of humor. Dana is an amazing mother and always puts others first.

We are both active people and enjoy a variety of outdoor activities. We feel very blessed to live in a community that has wide, open spaces that allow us to enjoy the beauty of outdoors.

Safe, secure, and inviting are the best ways to describe our rural community. We live in a spacious, 2-story house with a large backyard. We have plenty of room in our backyard to run and play on the swing set as well as in the playhouse. We do lots of fun outdoor backyard activities. We are close to the park, soccer fields, t-ball fields and the bike trail. A large swimming pool is just a short walking distance from our house. We live in a neighborhood with lots of young families and children, so our neighborhood has a lot of activities that are very safe, warm and welcoming.

Family is a top priority for us! We always have plenty of time to celebrate birthdays, holidays, attend church, and enjoy family outings. Every day your child will know love and joy not only from us, but also from our large, extended family. We are also active in our community and have a well-rounded group of friends that we can rely on.

We wish you the best in everything that you do and you can rest assured knowing that your child will be in loving hands. We can only imagine that this has been a very difficult decision for you and we want you to know that you are one of the most courageous, compassionate and unselfish people we know. Thanks to you and your courage, would be making our dream come true.

With all our Love,
Clint and Dana

We enjoy the outdoors and many activities as well as sports (both playing and watching): fishing, camping, gardening, grilling, baking, playing cards/board games, riding bikes, swimming and 4-wheeling. Honestly, there isn’t really anything that we don’t enjoy. While we love being on the go, it’s also nice to find time to just enjoy the peace and quiet and downtime.

How We Spend a Typical 3-Day Weekend

We enjoy the long weekend spending time visiting out of town family and taking a little getaway. We love to take mini vacations and find ourselves with plenty of activities or events to attend.

Our Hobbies

While we love to watch sports, we cheer for two different teams in our house. It is all in fun and it just adds to the excitement. Clint is an avid Baltimore Ravens fan, while Dana is a Denver Broncos fan; Parker kind of goes back and forth depending on the season or who is playing, but does sport both teams colors and clothing gear.

Clint: I enjoy fishing and hunting and especially like it when Dana and Parker can join me. I always like to make bets on who will catch the most fish or the biggest fish. Dana and Parker are always up for the challenge and are good sports.

Dana: I enjoy fishing and spending time at the lake with Clint and Parker. I like to have campfires and am always up for experimental campfire cooking. I like to garden and do outdoor activities: riding bikes with Parker and taking the dogs on walks.

Parker: I love playing outside and during the warm weather; I am always up for a good water fight. I love swimming and would like to spend every day at the pool. I also enjoy riding my scooter and bike and playing with the dogs.

As a family: We enjoy going to the lake in the summer and camping. Roasting marshmallows over the campfire is always one of our favorite family events.

Our Traditions

We love spending time together as a family and enjoy celebrating all holidays. On Christmas we like to cook a large meal, and enjoy spending time together as a family. We love playing games/cards or watching a Christmas movie. The highlight of Christmas is wearing our favorite Christmas pajamas and singing Christmas songs. Easter, we enjoy dying eggs and seeing how creative we can make them. We have a little competition on who can make the “best” egg. For Halloween, we enjoy going to the pumpkin patch and picking out our favorite pumpkins. We enjoy carving pumpkins and seeing how many pumpkins we can carve out and decorate before our porch gets overloaded. We like to find our way through a corn maze and do the Halloween scavenger hunt corn maze. It is so much fun and while we might get a little lost at times, it just adds to the fun and excitement!

How a Child will Enrich our Lives

We waited a long time to start a family and we both knew how badly we wanted to be parents. We are so blessed to have Parker in our life and know that another child will be a great addition to our family and will make it complete.

What Kind of Parents We will Be

As parents, we believe that children need to be loved unconditionally and to be supported in everything that they do. We will teach them about responsibilities and morals and how to learn from mistakes and to strive to be the best that they can be.

Why We're Choosing to Adopt

Early on in our relationship we knew that family was very important to both of us and that we both wanted to be parents. After seeking medical treatment for infertility with no success, our hearts desire was to still have children. We decided adoption was no doubt how we wanted to add to our family. We were blessed with the adoption of our son Parker, who we love to the moon and know that adoption is a great fit for us again. We’ve always wanted a large family. Parker will be such a protective, supportive and caring big brother. He has been asking for a baby brother or sister to love and play with. We can’t wait for his dream to come true along with ours.

What it Means to Us to Adopt a Child

Our little family is wonderful and amazing, but it isn’t fully complete yet. We have more love to give and know that some tiny and perfect, little one is still missing from our lives and we can’t wait to meet him or her.

>
<

What We will Teach our Children

We will teach our children the same things our parents taught us growing up: morals, responsibility and a hard work ethic. We will also teach them manners, to be respectful and to appreciate and be grateful for what you have. They will learn to believe in themselves and to be the best that they can be. We will show them the true meaning of love by our loving example.

Our Relationship with our Child's Birth Mother

We were so blessed to add the perfect little baby boy into our lives when we adopted Parker. We never knew how much we could love until we met him and it will be the same for your child. The relationship we have with his birth parents is amazing. They are truly our living angels. We are so thankful for them each and every day. Words cannot express how much love and care we have for them.

When we picture ourselves holding your precious, baby these are our thoughts regarding the birth mother:

We feel complete love! You are so strong and so brave and we thank you for your courage and for making our dreams come true. We are beyond grateful for you and the love you have for your child.

What We will Tell our Child about Their Birth Mother

Your child will know that you were so courageous to make such a difficult decision and that you loved them more than anything; and that’s why you made such an admiral decision. They will know that we feel that you are amazing and that you wanted only the very best for them.
