Dear Expectant Mother,

Hello! We are Carl and Brianna. We have been together for 12 years and married for 7 years. As we plan on growing our family, we keep you in the forefront of our mind. We cannot imagine how difficult a decision you are faced with making for yourself and your child. We are in awe of your courage and strength. We will raise your child knowing about his/her story and hope to include you in these conversations, in as much as you desire!

We are very excited to grow our family and your child will be well loved by us, our daughter, our very close friend group, and our extended family. Our four-year-old daughter is extremely excited to be a big sister and constantly asks when her baby sister or brother will be here. We have a very close group of friends that have been involved in our adoption journey from day one and are excited to welcome a new child. Although we both have siblings, our daughter is the only grandchild to both sets of our parents and the only niece or nephew to our three siblings. Our family is absolutely in love with our daughter and beyond ecstatic to welcome a new child to our family!

During a typical week, we love to have pizza parties and movie nights with our daughter. We also love reading, hiking, watching football as a family, dancing in the kitchen, working in the yard or on cars, and barbequing with friends. Carl’s parents have a cabin on a river in Wisconsin and we try to visit there for boating and beach fun as much as possible.

We look forward to enriching your child’s life by honoring his/her background, culture, and story. We will ensure your child is well-educated in these areas. In addition, we love to travel and hope to explore the world with your child.

We have always known we want to adopt. We want to help you give your child a good and loving home. We want to help give you a variety of options for who will raise your child. We want to give you the option to have an open relationship with your child and his or her adoptive parents. In addition to our passion for adoption, after giving birth to our daughter, Brianna suffered from postpartum depression that was debilitating for her. We have always wanted a big family and we are hoping adoption will grant us that wish.

We cannot imagine how difficult this decision is for you, but we want to encourage you to do what is best for you and tomake the best choice for you. We would be honored if you choose us as your adoptive family. Thank you for taking the time to look at our profile and considering us as adoptive parents.

Love,
Carl and Brianna

Q&A

Tell us about your home and neighborhood.

We live in a one-story, ranch-style home in a beautiful and diverse neighborhood. Our neighborhood is full of young families with children and our four-year-old daughter plays with them on a regular basis. There is also a park and playground located two blocks away.

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

When we have extra time, we like to visit our parents. Carl’s parents own a cabin on the river where we are happy to spend time barbecuing on the beach or boating down the river. We also have a very close group of friends in here in town that we like to have over to our home for movies or game nights whenever possible.

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

We currently have an 11-year-old Italian Greyhound named Toshi. Toshi is a small dog, weighing about 13 pounds and is truly the perfect child dog. He has been with us since before we had our daughter and has been great with her through every tail grab and ear pull.

What will you tell your child about his or her birthmom?

We will tell your child everything we know about you. We would love to be able to tell them about his/her story and family. We hope to sustain an open adoption with open communication and love.

What will you share with your children?

We love to travel the world, which is something we hope to share with our children. We hope to enrich a child's life in many ways, but we are excited to show our children the world.

Will you be returning to work? If so, describe your day-care plans.

We both plan to return to work after an extended stay at home with your baby. Brianna will be working 30 hours a week and finishes work around 2 p.m. every day. Carl will be working three days a week, so we will only require about three half-days of daycare a week. We have a few references for day cares in the area, however, we are hoping to find a good in-house caregiver.
