Dear Expecting Mother/Parents,
We know this decision is not an easy one and appreciate the
sacrifice you are considering to provide your child with a loving and caring
home. Your child is a gift and will know of your courage and selfless
sacrifice. We cannot have children of our own, but always imagined having a
family full of children to share our love with. Knowing that adoption is a
possibility has helped us make amends with not being able to have children. We
want to give you peace of mind knowing that your child will be well cared for
and loved beyond words. We plan to provide him or her with a stable home, love,
We have surrounded ourselves in Alaska with supportive
friends and family, who are excited to provide a support network for your child.
Alaska is a big and beautiful place full of adventure. As stewards of the
outdoors, we look forward to sharing the natural world with him or her. Most of
our time is spent outside camping, hiking, skiing, biking, and fishing. We look
forward to teaching him or her how to ride a bike, catch a fish, set up a tent,
and identify wild plants.
We have a sweet Alaskan husky puppy named Tallulah that
loves children. On our daily walks through the neighborhood children frequently
ask to pet and play with her. She loves this and is always happy to roll over
for a belly pet. We look forward to watching them cuddle and play together.
In the summer we will hike mountains, fish for salmon, berry
pick, and enjoy blueberry pancakes. In the winter, we will cross-country ski to
cabins and build snow people. We love to travel and try to take a two week trip
each year in addition to our yearly trek to see our families in North Carolina
and Florida. Our family visits are a perfect place to spend winter and
reconnect with our loved ones. We come from large families and your baby would
start their life loved by five older cousins, the youngest of which is almost a
We also dabble in the arts. Josh enjoys drawing and playing
the mandolin. Annie enjoys painting and photography. We have six chickens all
named after female musicians, who provide us with eggs and hours of entertainment.
In the summer, our yard turns into a garden full of vegetables and flowers. We
live in a small neighborhood surrounded by trails and neighbors who know and
look out for one another.
We have loved each other for the past nine years, building a
relationship based on respect and caring for one another. We make a point to
never leave the house without letting the other person know how much we love them.
We look forward to sharing our lives and our love with a child and want you to
know that your child’s life will be filled with love, laughter, knowledge, and
Josh & Annie
