you’re showing in considering adoption. It requires sacrifice and strength to

our late twenties, we saw friends begin to have children and grow their
families. Marriage came for us in our thirties, and a few years later we

adoption journey is not one we have undertaken lightly. The dashed hopes,

Yet we found ourselves unable to have a child. Choosing adoption was a natural
decision. The drive to help people and improve their lives are at the heart of
who we are. Knowing there are birth mothers and children in need, we want to
plan to provide your child with a household filled with love, support and
imagination. Education is very important to us, and we will strive to make
learning paramount and fun. Opening their eyes to new cultures, people and
ideas, along with encouraging him or her to dream, grow and develop a passion, will shape your child’s life in our home. We plan to impart our sense of equality,
justice and goodness to your child.
know that we will love, nurture and cherish your baby. He or she will be welcomed
by our families with open arms and will have many cousins to get to know and
spend time with. We plan to be open and honest about adoption and never hide or
let others shame it. We gladly will share whatever information or photos you
wish, and we will update you on your child’s development if desired. Being
selected as adoptive parents is one of the greatest responsibilities a person
can undertake. We would be honored to be chosen.
