There are significant moments in life when choices and
decisions come down to one moment, one hunch, one inspiration, and one feeling.
Our growing family exists today because of moments like these. Moments in which
love, faith, and courage are the only things that matter. We were blessed with
Meredith and Justin when two very brave and courageous women made the unique
and special decision to bless us with their children. We desire to share our
love with another child and would love for you to join us on our journey.
Considering adoption for your child and finding the right
family will be the hardest thing you ever do. We are by no means perfect, but
our imperfections and little quirks are what make us a perfect family for each
other. David makes us laugh with his corny little songs, goofy nickname, and
when he does pranks on his sister and our friends. Angie has a knack for always
messing up Rice Krispy treats. She and Meredith laugh until they can’t breathe
at videos of people getting tripped or falling- even though she is one of the
most compassionate nurses around. Meredith is always making silly faces and
pretending she is starring in her own YouTube show. She always closes
with “Be sure to like and subscribe below”. Justin is known for turning
everything into an obstacle course and dancing like nothing we have ever seen
before. How he doesn’t hurt himself we will never know! We have
competitions on who can roll their tongue or move their eyebrows better.
We love humor, we laugh at ourselves (and each other) and we embrace and
treasure all of those little quirks.
Our family is so excited to welcome a new little one. He or
she will be the baby of the family for years to come and will be spoiled with
love and attention. We look forward to cuddling him or her, listening to
those belly laughs when we play tickle monster, reading books, and even
changing poopy diapers. Your baby will also be adored by our church
family and friends. They will be surrounded by so many people that will
celebrate their milestones, empower them to succeed, encourage them in all they
do, and cheer them on throughout their many accomplishments in life. We
can’t wait to witness their first steps, interpret their first words, bandage
their skinned knees, teach them to drive, celebrate their first dates, and
comfort them during the first heartbreak. We can’t wait to experience every
moment of life with them.
As a family, we take regular trips to the zoo where we ride
the train and pet the stingrays. We also take vacations to Disney World and to
the beach. Every year, we have our annual family road trip to Texas to see
grandparents (their other set of grandparents live just down the road from
us). Your little one will spend quality family time exploring for bugs in
the backyard (just being a kid), learning to swim in our pool, and playing in a
treehouse/playground that Dave and Meredith built themselves. Dave loves
building additions to the playground with each child which teaches them how to
build and work with their hands.
Your child will be loved beyond measure and have a unique
bond with their older adopted siblings. Meredith and Justin cannot wait to
teach their little baby brother or sister all they know about soccer drills,
basketball 3-pointers, hitting a home run, making crafts in Mom’s craft room,
building Legos with Dad, riding bikes, swimming in our pool, singing, dancing,
and everything Disney. We look forward to raising another little one to
be faithful in God, to be kind to everyone, to love life beyond words, and to
be the best version of themselves possible. We will provide a safe,
non-judgmental home with open communication and parents who truly listen to the
needs and desires of our children.
We realize that our children are not only gifts from God but
also from courageous women like you. It is our responsibility to uphold the
promises we made to both of our children’s birth parents. We promised that we
would love our children to the moon and beyond, and we would provide them with
the best possible opportunities in life. We want to make those same
promises to you as well as honor your dreams and desires for your baby. Life
comes down to single important moments in which we are all guided by faith in
God, hope, love, and instinct. You will know, in your heart, when you find the
right parents for your child and we pray you find what you are looking for.
David & Angie
