Our names are Brent and Lida, and we’ve been waiting for you
for a long time. You, the most courageous person we will ever know. You, with
so much love in her heart. You, the person who will help us start a family. You.
We are waiting for You.
Thank you so much for considering us as parents for your
child. We hope this letter and profile give you an idea of who we are, and the
kind of parents we will be to your child.
We have both been looking forward to having children for a
long time. We tried for a long time to have our own child, but we were
unsuccessful. However, we are very happy that our infertility has brought us to
adopting because we know that this is the right solution for us. We know we can
create an amazing life for your child.
We were both brought up in loving homes with lots of family
around, and family is still very important to us. We look forward to sharing
our families and our family traditions with a child. Our family and friends are
all so happy for us and anxious to meet our new addition.
We met online and dated for almost a year before moving in
together. On our first Valentine’s Day, Brent got Lida two kittens, Zoe and
Kaylee. They are the cats we still have today. A year after that, we were
married at our home. We had a simple ceremony with family, then a big cookout
and party with all our friends and family. We are a great couple because we complement
each other. Brent's quiet nature keeps me grounded, and my talkative personality
has helped him to be more outgoing.
We both have good, stable jobs. Brent has been with his
current employer for many years. He started as a computer programmer and is now
the Senior Director of a large development team. I am a dance teacher and office
manager at my family's dance studio. I love children and am so glad to be able
to work with them every day. We both feel that taking dance not only teaches
children how to dance, but it also teaches confidence, how to work towards a
goal, and encourages exercise. But we promise not to make your child's life all
about dance! Brent's love of sports balances my love of the arts, and we want
you to know your child's choices will be their own to make. We will encourage
them in whatever path they choose.
We live in a small-town suburb, in a ranch-style house, on 14-acres of woods. On the weekends we like to travel in our RV or just chill out
at home. Sometimes we visit with friends or family or do a DIY project around
the house. We also enjoy walking in the woods on our property and spending time
We hope you will continue to read more and learn even more
about us. We have so much we would like to share with you!
He is mine in a way that he will never be hers,
Yet he is hers in a way that he will never be mine.
And so together, we are Motherhood.
We hope to hear from you soon. We are waiting for You.
Love and Best Wishes,
Lida & Brent
