Dear Expectant Mother,
Thank you for taking the time to get to know us a little
better. We respect and are truly humbled
by your openness to consider adoption.
We just want to let you know that if you choose us to be the parents of
your child, your child will be coming to a home full of love and support and we
would be forever grateful to you.
Let us introduce ourselves.
We are Dane and Kim. Dane is a
teacher and has been teaching for 8 years now.
Kim is a student, studying to go into education. She has been working with children in an
after school program for 4 years now, and is through our experiences in the educational field that prompted us to adopt. We understand how special every child is and
believe that every child is a precious gift.
Right now we see each of our students as “our kids." We celebrate their success and work with them
through the tough times. We really
believe that adoption is our calling and eagerly await a child of our own.
Family is very important to the both of us. We live by and are very close with our
families. Every week we have dinner at
our family’s house, where we laugh and share stories. There is always good food and good company
when the family gets together. Our
families are eagerly awaiting a new addition.
For Dane’s mom it will be her first grandchild and she can’t wait to
spoil him/her as only a grandma can. For
Kim’s parents, this will be their first grandchild that lives in Hawaii, so they
are excited to be able to see them anytime they want. Both families are almost as excited as we
are to welcome a new child.
We live in such a beautiful place and can’t wait to share
its beauty with your child. We can’t
wait to go hiking in a volcano, play in snow at the top of the tallest mountain
in the world or go surfing at one of our wonderful beaches. We are a very active couple who loves to
exercise and move around and can’t wait to share these passions with your
child. Dane also enjoys watching sports,
woodworking and running, while Kim likes to cook, bake and craft.
Growing up, our parents instilled a hard work ethic
into both of us. We believe that
through perseverance anything is possible.
This is something that we both value and want to pass down to our child
as well. We also value respect,
compassion and self-confidence. These
are things that we try to teach our students every day and something we will
strive to teach your child.
In our house we also have an 8-year-old, spoiled Yorkie Shih
Tzu named Manning. She a loving, loyal
and beautiful dog who loves to cuddle and follow us around. She blesses us with so many kisses every day. She will make for an amazing “sister” and
companion for your child.
We cannot begin to express the gratitude we would have
towards you should you allow us to bring your child into our family. All we can promise is that your child will
have an enjoyable childhood surrounded by laughter, fun, learning, support and
lots of love. We want to thank you for
taking the time to learn a little more about our family.
Dane, Kim & Manning
