would like to thank you for taking the time to read our letter and to look at
our profile. We have 2 biological children and have wanted to adopt for several
years. We know that you are making a very courageous decision to place your
child for adoption. We don’t know what you are feeling or going through, but we
do promise to pray for you. In fact, we already have. We know that you have a
difficult decision to make in choosing an adoptive family to raise your child.
can promise that we will take wonderful care of your baby and he/she will
receive more love than a child can hope for. We will provide a nurturing and
safe environment for him/her and do our best to be the parents he/she deserves.
met in college and dated for 2 1/2 years before we married. When we got
married, we wanted to have 3 or 4 children and for them to be close in age. God
had other plans for us, and we were open to discovering His will for our lives.
Our children are 4 1/2 years apart and our youngest just turned 6, so obviously
it’s not what “we” had planned. The Lord told us that His plan was for us to
adopt several years ago, and we made the decision to not have any more children
of our own so that we could pursue adoption. We have done foster care for the
past few years and believe that it is now time for us to adopt. We are SO
excited to be on this journey!
enjoy spending time together as a couple watching ballgames and taking trips
and independently enjoy sports and scrapbooking. We spend time together as a
family of 4 most of the time and can’t wait till we are a family of 5! We
know family time is important and we love being together. We go to church
together every Sunday and on Wednesday nights. We love playing board games at
home, as well as doing things outside like riding 4-wheelers, jumping on the
trampoline, playing kickball and making S’mores. We also enjoy going to the
lake for boating and swimming as well as watching our son play sports. With a
new baby, we look forward to teaching him or her to ride a bike and do all of
the fun things we already do with our other kids. Our children play well together
and can't wait until we have a new baby in our home! Our daughter asks every
day when we are going to get to go get our new baby. Both of our children will
be great with a baby sister or brother.
would like to leave you with our favorite Bible verses. Stephanie’s is
Philippians 4:6-7, which says: “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by
prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to
God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your
hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” Neil’s are James 1:2-3 “My brethren, count
it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your
faith produces patience” and Matthew 6:33 “But seek first the kingdom of God
and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”
are praying for you as you are on this courageous journey.
