From Us to You

Hello expectant mother,

We cannot even begin to comprehend the difficulties you are facing and the extraordinarily difficult decisions you are having to work through. We want to assure you that with us you would be placing your child in a kind, compassionate and capable home. We are here to help you through this process and make this part of your life a bit easier.

Calvin has been in nursing for over 15 years and currently holds certification as an emergency department nurse. Dillan has also been in healthcare for the last 10 years as a certified nursing assistant. The combined healthcare experience gives us the opportunity to care for all children if any medical concerns arise. Starting a family later in life has afforded us the opportunity to settle our careers first before focusing on building a family.

Life in our home is pretty simple. We have a small hobby farm with various animals: Cows, goats, pigs, chickens, and a puppy. We enjoy being out in the fields with the animals. We are also licensed foster parents and have had a handful of placements in our home. Each child is well cared for and is a ray of light in our home. As foster care parents, we enjoy taking the kids out into the field. Where we teach them to care for the various animals and interact with our beloved puppy, Stitch. We enjoy watching football as a family and wear our jerseys on game day. Usually, we will make a spread of various foods to snack on during the game. Go Hawks!

Foster parenting has taught us that there are all different kinds of people in the world that need just a little assistance. When we started with foster-care we wanted minimal contact with the birth family. Our eyes were rapidly opened to the necessities of family interaction. We built a relationship with the mother of our first foster son and we remain in contact with them after he was reunited with his mother. They are both now part of our blended family and are welcome in our home. We enjoy spending the holidays and other life events with them. We are hoping to continue this with you and include you in as many aspects of the baby’s life as you would like.

Your baby will have a secure future in our home. We are both college graduates with secure careers in the medical industry. We pride ourselves on keeping a nice home and emphasizing educational opportunities as well as physical and creative activities. Your baby will be surrounded with endless love and caring not only from us but from our relatives that live close and are available to help as needed.

This time in your life is extremely difficult physically and emotionally. We want to be here to make it as easy as possible. We are excited to help you through this difficult process. Our goal is to make the life of your baby as comfortable, educational, and diverse as possible.

Thank you,
Calvin and Dillan

About Calvin

What to say about my husband, Calvin? Well to start he is a provider for his family and caregiver for our community. He has served his country and now serves the sick and vulnerable. Calvin is a direct person, yet an emotional man. He loves to celebrate the holidays (and not just the winter holidays, but all of them) and make sure that I and our foster children feel special and loved. Calvin has and continues to work hard to create a safe and comfortable life. And not only for the two of us, but for the family we hope to raise. He is always learning and trying to get better at his job and as a husband. These are some of the reasons in which this man became my rock, my husband.

About Dillan

Dillan is the most kind and compassionate person that I have met. So… I married him. He is selfless and dedicated to our family. I am constantly amazed at his generosity and patience with our foster children. He is truly the best thing that has ever happened to me.

Our Home

Our love of nature and self-sustaining lifestyle drove us to start a small hobby farm. We have a couple of cows, a couple of pigs, a small herd of goats (for milk/cheese) and a handful of chickens. Our home is built on love, honesty, and respect. Our neighbors are friendly and warm. We exchange fresh baked goodies and fresh produce from the garden.

Our Lifestyle

We lead an active lifestyle with activities to do around the house and farm. The various animals that we have require ongoing care and feeding. Our foster children are the main focus of our lifestyle. We plan activities that will include them and enrich their lives.

Our Families

Calvin’s mother lives fairly close to us and she frequently will assist with childcare needs or babysit for the evening. Dillan’s mother lives north of us and visits are not as frequent as we would like due to the distance. We have an extended family through the children that we have fostered. We maintain close relationships with our foster son and his biological mother.

Why We are Choosing to Adopt

We have always wanted children in our home. The sound of toys and laughter complete our home. We have made the decision to adopt because there are a large number of children (born and unborn alike) that need a little extra help in life. We are at a point in our careers that we can provide that little extra support to help them succeed.

Family Traditions

We continue to build our traditions from year to year. Our current traditions surround the major holidays (cooking Thanksgiving dinner and opening presents on Christmas). Football has become an additional tradition in our house. Family comes over on game day and we make finger foods or order pizza while we watch the game.

Our Promise to You

Our promise to you is that your baby will be well cared for and placed in the center of our home. Your baby will receive an excellent education and will want for very little throughout their life.
