Dear Expectant Mother,
Thank you. Thank you for your bravery. Thank you for your
heart. We find it truly amazing the
level of courage it takes to not only give life, but to give life again. We appreciate the time you’re taking to view
our profile and we hope that no matter the decision you make, that you find
peace in knowing you are doing what is best for your baby.
We have talked about adoption for many years. We were
fearful we would not have the ability to have children, so we began our
thoughts and research years ago. Then the Lord blessed us with our precious
daughter, Madelyn. While we are so thankful for the gift of her life, we knew
our family was not complete and we knew in our hearts our next steps were to
formally begin our adoption journey.
Ben is a school teacher who loves children of all ages, and
his goal is to advocate for them in every way and help mold their futures for
success. Channing has devoted her career as a nurse to helping families
diagnosed with cancer. She has a heart, love, and passion for people that is
immeasurable. We are thankful for our careers and the way they have allowed us
to love and connect with people, and we are so excited that this journey can
connect us with you in a way that can never be appreciated enough.
We want you to know that your child will be raised in a home
full of love, and laughter and support. We are surrounded by family that lives
less than 20 minutes away. Your child will have many cousins and friends to
play with as well as a very excited big sister. We spend hours playing outside.
Our neighborhood is full of young children and families that your child would
be able to grow up with. We enjoy parks, pools, a canoe launch and even a whiffle
ball field right in our own neighborhood!
We have been praying for you constantly. We pray you feel
loved and supported for the choices you are making. We pray for continued
strength and courage and we pray that you know the effect you have on us, our
families and this world. We are humbled
by your actions and, most importantly, want you know how your child will grow
up knowing you and the selfless love that you have shown through this adoption.
With all our love,
Ben and Channing
