We are amazed at the profound act of love and selflessness you are undertaking at this time in your life. We can’t even imagine the courage it must take for you in making this decision for your baby. We can promise that your baby will be loved, cared for, and celebrated. They will be surrounded by family that will love them unconditionally. We will let them know that you are an amazing woman who placed their needs above your own.
Your baby will have an automatic best friend for life joining our family of three. Our son is old enough to understand that he is getting a “baby” and is always excited when we talk to him about it. He was adopted at birth and is thriving in our family. We have loved him since the moment we set eyes on him. We look forward to the joy another child will bring to not only us, but to our son as well. David’s side of the family, including the grandparents and fun loving uncles, are all ecstatic about another child to shower with love. They are very active and adore playing with children. On Apple’s side, her parents are amazing grandparents to her brother’s three children (two of whom are adopted), and are so excited for Apple to have another child. Both her parents are retired and love spending their time with family and babysitting their grandchildren as often as they can. Cousins, aunts, uncles and grandparents are all close by. We have also recently added a beautiful kitty to our household, to our son’s delight. The poor little creature was abandoned and showed up at our doorstep and we decided we couldn’t turn our backs on him. He is a very gentle and loving cat who our son adores.
Our greatest hope is to raise children that have a happy childhood and are well rounded, confident, caring, compassionate, and respectful. We will ensure they have a strong education, which is very important to us. They will have the tools and resources needed to accomplish whatever their dreams may be. We also are strong believers of extracurricular activities. We imagine exposing them to activities that they express interest in and some activities they may not know they will enjoy!
David is a successful businessman and a great provider. He has been able to create a great work life balance that has made him very successful in business and allowed for a happy home life. For David, family always comes first. He is fun loving and loves to play with all children, including his nephews who are always begging to “stay and play with Uncle David.”
Apple is also is a stay at home mom and loves spending time with our son. Being at home allows her time to plan special activities and provide the nurturing that is so important to a young child. Apple loves to channel her creative side by painting, decorating and dancing. She is very family oriented and enjoys planning family gatherings at our home for holidays and special occasions. When the weather allows, this includes backyard barbecues and swimming, in the colder seasons this means plenty of food, fun, and games of all kinds. No one is ever without something fun to do at our home and we hope for another child that we can share this happiness with.
All in all, we have an amazing life and hope to share this with another child. We would be filled with joy to nurture a child with the support and love that we share. Our family is a family where your child would feel safe and secure as well as enjoy positive attitudes, great communication, plenty of smiles, and most importantly, unconditional love.
