Dear Expectant Mother,
We are Greg and
Marissa. To start, we want to say that we are so thankful that you have
taken the time to learn about us. There is no way that we can truly
understand the emotions you are probably going through right now, but we admire
your strength and selflessness as you consider adoption for your child.
We met each other
through mutual friends while living in Florida seven years ago. We
started off as just friends, but quickly realized that we were meant to be
together. We are a team and compliment and balance each other perfectly.
We decided to leave Florida and grow our family in the Midwest because we felt
it was a great place to raise a family.
We have an amazing son
named Connor who was born in June 2017.
It is so fun to watch him grow and learn. Being parents has been the greatest blessing
and we can’t wait to share our love with another child. We also have two dogs that we consider our
“fur children.” Gizmo is a 13-year-old, mixed-breed, rescue dog. He loves
to cuddle and chase his ball. Henry is an 8-year-old black lab and loves
to go hunting with Greg or take a ride in the truck. Both dogs have done
very well around Connor and we know they will love another new brother or
We both come from very
loving and supportive families and we want to instill that closeness into the
family that we build. We believe that family is the foundation of your
life. Whether it’s grilling out or sitting around the bonfire and
roasting marshmallows, family time is always the best time. Greg’s mom and step-dad live very close to us and we see
them almost every weekend. They love spending time with Connor and are excited
for another grandchild to spoil.
Greg was born and
raised in Iowa. His dad, step-mom, brothers and sister still live there
and are about three hours away. We stay in close contact with them and
they visit often. Marissa’s parents live in her hometown in Florida but we talk
with them daily and we visit them every few months.
Most importantly, we
want you to know that we will love your child unconditionally. As they
grow we will provide them with endless amounts of support and guidance.
We will fill our home with happiness, fun, and laughter and raise your child to
enjoy life to the fullest.
We know this decision
isn’t easy for you. We are thrilled with the prospect of bringing a new
life into our home and we would be honored and blessed if you chose us to be
the parents to your child.
Greg & Marissa
