From Us to You

Let us begin by telling you how loved and valued you are, how grateful we are to be given the chance to raise your child as our own. You would be giving us something that we are unable to give ourselves. A child. There is already so much love surrounding your child, not only by us, but by our extended family as well.

A little back story. We have tried for years to have our own child, tried everything. We have been through many failed IUI’s and multiple miscarriages. For some unknown reason Becky has been unable to sustain a pregnancy. There has been so much heartbreak. It’s not easy to talk about, but it’s important to express how desired and how loved your baby is. It’s been a journey, and we have walked the rocky path, and it has led us to adoption. It seems so clear that we are meant to love a child that needs a family like ours. We know your path hasn’t been easy either. We understand ups and downs, we are here for you, to support you, to be someone in your corner. You are not alone in this and, if you have a great support system in place, that is awesome. We are happy to be added into that group however you feel appropriate. You will forever be an extension to our family, and we hold you near and dear to our hearts. There is no way to thank you enough, the woman who would make us Mommy and Daddy. A simple thanks would never be enough. Your incredible decision would change our lives forever, in the best ways possible. Before you we lived for ourselves. Because of your precious gift we would live for your child. We are so excited to see where the future takes us. We are looking forward to all the new and the crazy. To say we are excited is an understatement. We truly can’t express the gratitude and love we feel for you.

Thank You. Thank You. Thank You.

Why We're Choosing to Adopt

I (Becky) have always loved children and have wanted my world to revolve around them. We made the move to Michigan in 2021 and it has been the best decision we could have ever made. We have found an amazing little town, our forever home, and we have the stability to finally adopt. It has taken this long due to both of us working full time, living in a home that we felt was not adequate enough to bring a baby into as well as a city that wasn’t ideal for children. Adoption to us will be completing our family. Through adoption we also look forward to helping a wonderful young lady with the love and support she needs in her time of need. Adoption to us is unconditional, never wavering love that we want to provide for an amazing child, and their biological mother.

About Josh, by Becky

I honestly couldn’t imagine my life without Josh in it. He has challenged me to be better in so many ways. He taught me patience and compassion through raising his children. Josh has introduced me to things I never thought I would like. Thanks to Josh I have become more open minded and grown as a person. This man is my rock. We have been through the good and bad together and I couldn’t imagine anyone else by my side. I love how goofy he can be, cracking jokes and telling funny stories. Josh is my person, my safe place, my home. I can’t explain the love and admiration I hold for him. I am looking forward to being able to share him with baby and for our love to continue to grow as we become parents together.

About Becky, by Josh

There are so many things I can say about my wife, Becky. She is a kind and loving person and would try to help anyone. Becky makes our house a home that I always look forward to coming back to at the end of my workday. We enjoy spending time together, talking, trying new things and just having fun. She’s helped me to be a better person and father to my two young boys by helping me raise them as a very loving and involved step-mama. She could not have children even though she would make a great mother and his been an amazing stepmom. I hope someone will make our dreams come true.

Our Home and Neighborhood

Our home is one of our favorite places. After years of searching for it, in 2020 we found our heaven on earth. This house is everything we want to raise a child in. We have four bedrooms, three bathrooms and tons of outside space. Our back yard is fully fenced. It houses a big pool, trampoline, garden and even a few kid-size play-houses for imagining. Our home is our peace and serenity, it is our safe space, a space we would love to share with your child.

Your baby will have their own space. Although the room is not ready yet, it’s well on the way with being filled full of toys, books and lots of love. We are looking forward to painting and decorating for them, and buying all the big items and goodies they will need to grow successfully. We will be painting it a soft and soothing gray. Any other colors will be represented with décor once we know the gender of your baby.

Our home is in a quiet neighborhood. There are many families around us with children who are excited to have a new buddy. We have already had a couple of the neighbor girls offer their time to babysit, (they are currently 7 and 9) however it’ll be a few years before we will be comfortable with that 🙂 . Becky is a child magnet, if there are kids around, they flock to her. The neighborhood children are no different. They are always over doing crafts in the craft room with Becky, swimming in the pool, jumping on the trampoline or playing hide and seek inside our home. Your child already has so many friends waiting to meet them. During nice weather we have some wooded trails to hike, and we usually take the puppies. We also have a creek behind our house to explore, but it’s not directly accessible from our yard.

Becky attended an open house at the local school with her two oldest nieces just before school started. They were switching to a new school and totally nervous. She loved everything she saw! All the teachers were amazing, the school itself was set up wonderfully and to top it all off, our nieces fell in love with the school immediately. Just from that experience alone we will have your child attend this school with all their neighborhood friends when it’s time.

Our Sweet Pups

We are a dog loving family. For as long as either of us can remember there has always been a dog in our lives. Currently we have three sweet, crazy and loving puppers. Birdie is 4 years old and a full blood Blue Heeler. Birdie’s life started off rough, but she has done nothing but thrive since we saved her. Birdie has a kind heart and loves children, she’s the protector when children are around. Beaux is 3 years old and is half Blue Heeler half Australian Shephard. Beaux is an old soul. He’s really chill unless playing outside. He is our lover. Finally, we have Sadie – 1 year old and a full blood Blue Heeler. Sadie is the cutest nut. She enjoys being the center of attention. Since she has been with us she has brought out more of Beaux’s personality. All of our pups love people and adore children; Lyla often comes to play and giggles the whole time as she watches them chase the toys she throws for them. We are looking forward to giving them a human sibling to love, protect and play with, and we know they’ll be amazing and gengle protectors and guardians.

Our Families

Our family is a bunch of goofballs. We all love to make each other laugh and have a good time but we know how to be serious when needed. Your baby will have two grandparents on Becky’s side, as well as one uncle, one aunt and one cousin. Becky’s sister in-laws’ family has also become a part of our family unit providing additional grandparents, and aunts and uncles. Cousin Lyla (currently 3) is the only niece, grandchild, little one in the family and is looking forward to growing up with her new little cousin. We love to get together for holidays, BBQ’s and back yard parties. Your baby will also have two grown brothers and three silly, friendly and loving fur siblings. Our family is made up of friends as well. We are firm believers that our small circle of friends are a part of the family. All of these people have been in our lives for a decade or more and are super excited to become aunts and uncles to your child.

Family Traditions

One thing we love about our family is the amount of love and support we share with each other. We spend almost every holiday together, where we have a nice meal that everyone contributes to. We sit around and talk, tell stories, catch up and just enjoy each other’s company. Christmas is probably our favorite, as we get to spoil our niece, Lyla. There is nothing better than seeing her eyes light up when she opens her presents. Thanksgiving is Josh’s favorite holiday as that is the only time he gets turkey and all the fixin’s. This past year has been difficult with holidays as Covid-19 and other illnesses keep making its way through the households. So when we are able to get together it makes it that much more special. Thanks to our wonderful sister in-law we are starting monthly family meals. We are above and beyond excited to add this to our awesome family traditions. We are so excited to expand on our family traditions your baby, we have plans to add in a yearly trip to pick apples at local farms, pumpkin patches and corn mazes in the fall, and trips to the local zoo! They recently added giraffes and it’s one of Cousin Lyla’s favorites that she can’t wait to share with her new cousin.

Our Vacations

Every year we take a vacation in the summer to a little island on Lake Michigan; it’s heaven on earth. Our family owns a cottage up there with the lake as the front yard. Becky has been visiting there since she was a baby and it’s become a precious tradition to the family. Josh and his boys were introduced to the area in 2009 and immediately fell in love. This island is only 13 miles long by six miles wide. It has one small grocery store, a gas station, a couple small restaurants, a hardware store and a couple “souvenir shops.” All this is located on the only paved road on the island. When on the island you’re on “Island Time.” There’s no rush or hustle and bustle, just perfect relaxation. It is, by far, the most peaceful place we have ever been on earth. We cannot wait to be able to share this with your child and to pass along our beautiful tradition.

Our Lifestyle

We live a laid-back life; we go with the flow but on a disciplined level. We enjoy spending time with family, and the friends that have become our family. Josh works Monday through Fridays. When he gets home and cleaned up we talk about our day and cook dinner together. Cooking together has become an important family time and we both look forward to it. After watching a program or two together, or spending time outside with the dogs, he is off to bed. To prep for having a child in the family, Becky has become a stay-at-home mama-in-waiting. Currently she helps take care of her nieces, helps her disabled parents as needed and tends to the home and puppies. On the weekends Josh spends one day taking care of yard work and anything else needed around the house. The other day of the weekend is relaxation day and family time. That could be us just watching movies together, hanging out with friends and family, date night and so much more. We love our life and are truly blessed.

What Adoption Means to Us

Adopting means everything to us. Josh has two children from past relationships, but due to infertility issues with Becky we were unable to have a child together. Adopting gives us this chance. Adopting will make all our dreams come true. Adopting means sleepless nights, crazy days, endless love and laughs and everything in between. It means teaching, learning, growing with each other as well as with the baby; and we can’t wait! Absolute joy, love and sacrifice are some of the best words to use describing what adopting means to us. Becky has always dreamed of being a mommy and forming that unbreakable bond with a child, and only adoption can allow us to have this together. We have so much love to give and adopting will allow us to do this.

Our Relationship with you and What We'll tell your Child

We would like to have an open relationship with you. If you would like to, we want you to know your child, and for your child to know who you are. We would love to be able to share emails, letters, texts, cards and pictures with you. And to possibly find ways to get together in person occasionally. You are now considered part of our family. We will include you, within limits, in your baby’s life. We will share milestones and achievements with you. You are giving us an amazing gift, we want to give you a window to view your child’s world and have the confidence to know and see how very loved they are and have the peace of mind of knowing that your baby is cared for and thriving.

As soon as your child is able to understand, in any form, we will be taking about their adoption. We want them to know that they are loved by you, but that you needed some help taking care of them. We will make sure that they understand how wanted they are and that they were always loved so fully that you saw the need to give them the best opportunities available. Once your child becomes older we want them to have a say in their relationship with you. We will be an open book with your child, and answer all questions appropriately.

Our Promise to You

Our promise to you is that we will love your child with every essence of our being. We will teach them what is good and bad and how to know the difference. We will show them what it means to be loved unconditionally and to love unconditionally in return. We will provide them with family, traditions, experiences, education, and support emotionally, physically and financially. We will support your child in all their endeavors and encourage their interests and hobbies. Becky is looking forward to being a stay-at-home mama and having plenty of adventures and learning experiences with them. Your child will learn kindness and compassion, what it means to fail and what it means to succeed. They will learn what it means to be open-minded and understanding. We promise that your baby will be the raised to be the best person they can be. They will be always surrounded by love and kindness. We promise that your baby will be LOVED!
