Warm Hellos from Clint and Dana,
We invite you to read our story, but before you do, we want
to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for considering us. When we started
this journey of adoption, we hoped to find a birthmother who was strong and
courageous and we are truly blessed to have found you. Though we cannot begin
to understand what you are going through at this time, we truly appreciate your
strength as you travel through this journey of adoption. We do not always know
what God’s plan is, but faith and love is what has brought us together.
We cannot thank you enough for considering us for your wonderful
gift. We have dreamed about this day again and cannot believe that it’s finally
within our reach. We hope that you find comfort knowing that your child would be
raised in a loving and supportive home. We have huge hearts and lots of love to
give. We will share our love with your child each and every day and will
support them in everything they do. We will strive to provide the best life for
them and give them the childhood that both of us had: safe, loving, stable, and
We truly believe that we are each other’s soul mate. After
less than a year of dating, we knew we wanted to spend forever together; with a
proposal in the middle of a field, it couldn’t be more fitting for the start of
the next chapter of our life together. We play an active role on our
family farm where we spend quality time together; from rounding up the cattle,
to harvesting the crops, we truly feel that our marriage and lifestyle is like
In 2013 we were blessed to add the perfect little baby boy
into our lives when we adopted Parker. He is the joy of our lives and he can’t
wait to be a big brother. We never knew how much we could love until we met
him, and we know it will be the same for your child. The relationship we have
with Parker's birth parents is amazing. They are truly our living angels. They
gave us the greatest gift possible. We get along with both his birth mother and
birth father so well. We are very open with them and keep in contact with them
to this day. They know that they can call or contact us anytime they are having
a tough time, have any questions about how things are going, how Parker is
growing or want to see just how cute he is. They are so special to us and the
connection and bond we have is unexplainable. We know that we could have a very
special relationship and connection with you too if you desire. We are open to
your wishes and the kind of relationship you may want to have and we will
respect what you decide.
We both hold stable and secure employment. Clint works for
the family farm; his schedule allows him to be flexible and take his little
helper(s) with him from time to time. Clint is a great father and is a stand-up
guy; you can truly count on him for anything. Dana works in Human Resources and
she truly enjoys people. She is fun loving, trusting and has a great sense of
humor. Dana is an amazing mother and always puts others first.
We are both active people and enjoy a variety of outdoor
activities. We feel very blessed to live in a community that has wide open
spaces that allow us to enjoy the beauty of outdoors.
Safe, secure, and inviting are the best ways to describe our
rural community. We live in a unique, historical home. It is a 2 story,
stone home on a small acreage, with plenty of room for swing sets, snow angels
and summer slip-n-slides. Our house is surrounded by trees, which makes for fun
hiding places and outdoor forts.
Family is a top priority for us! We always have plenty of
time to celebrate birthdays and holidays, attend church, and enjoy family
outings. Every day your child will know love and joy not only from us, but also
from our large extended family. We are also active in our community and have a
well rounded group of friends that we can rely on.
We wish you the best in everything that you do and hope that
you can rest assured knowing that your child would be in loving hands with us.
We can only imagine that this has been a very difficult decision for you and we
want you to know that you are one of the most courageous, compassionate and
unselfish people we hope to know. Thanks to you and your courage, you could
make our dream come true.
With all our Love,
Clint and Dana
