Dear Precious Expectant Mother,
We are Adam and Tina and we are so honored and excited to be
sharing our story with you. First, we want to thank you for the brave and
selfless option you are considering with adoption. Though we cannot begin to
understand what you are going through at this time, we truly admire and respect
your choice in determining what is best for your child. Your strength and
courage provide a loving couple like us the opportunity to give your baby all
the love in our hearts and for us to have the family we have dreamed of.
We were introduced by mutual friends in 2005 and shared an
instant connection. After dating for more than a year, and enduring a long
distance relationship, we got engaged and made arrangements to move to
California to begin our life together. We were married in 2008 and just
celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary. We are the best of friends, with a
solid marriage that was built on a foundation of faith and family, and is full
of love, laughter and mutual respect.
As a Certified Athletic Trainer, Adam has worked in Sports
Medicine for more than 20 years and has the privilege of working with many
elite athletes, aiding in the prevention and recovery from injuries. Tina
worked in the dental field for nearly 20 years initially as a dental assistant
and eventually into dental office management. In 2017, Tina took on her most
important and rewarding job title as a stay-at-home mom to our son Jackson!
Our journey of starting a family has not been an easy one. In
2011, Tina was diagnosed with cancer and we were faced with many uncertainties,
not only with the radiation treatments to remove the cancer, but also the effects
it would have on our chances of having a child. After 4 years of trying to
conceive through a multitude of failed fertility treatments and ultimately
beating cancer, we shifted our focus from being pregnant to being parents. Yet
through all our struggles and disappointments, our decision to adopt a child
always remained a top choice for us.
In 2015, our prayers were answered when we got the long
awaited call that we had been matched with a birth mom, and in August we were
blessed with the most precious gift, our son Jackson. Our bond was instant from
the moment they placed him in our arms, and it became abundantly clear that
this was where he was meant to be, and that this is what we were meant to do. He
has brought so much joy to our lives with his infectious smile, funny
personality, and kind heart and has shown us a love like we’ve never known. Our
dream of a family grew even stronger after Jackson arrived, and now we hope to
give him a brother or sister with whom he can share this story with and
continue on this journey together as siblings.
Our mission has always been to raise children in a happy and
loving home where they have every opportunity to thrive. The gift of adoption is
the ultimate act of profound love and selflessness. We vow that your baby will
be loved, protected, and surrounded by family and friends who will celebrate
them and love them just as they have with Jackson.
We are grateful for your time in considering us and we hope
that sharing our story with you or our dreams to expand our family will help
you with your decision. We wish you all the best and that you find peace and
confidence in the choice that you make for your child.
Adam and Tina
