Michelle and Cooper, and we are so grateful that you are willing to consider an
adoption plan for your child. I assure you that we will work hard to be the best

and I met at work and dated for three years before we were married in 2006. We are
best friends and cherish one another. We love spending time with each other, whether
it is playing a game, doing yard work, watching a movie or spending time with family
and friends. Parenthood is something that has always been very important to us.
We will raise your child with positive family values, Christian beliefs, and make
sure your child has every opportunity to succeed. We believe in praise and discipline,
good behavior is rewarded and bad behavior is corrected in a positive manner.
was born January 2016, one of the happiest days of my life. We have tried to have
children for 10 years, but I am unable to produce any fertile eggs of my own. Finally,
after our second IVF cycle with a donor embryo, I was able to get pregnant with
Cooper. He was born two months premature, due to my preeclampsia. He spent six weeks
in the NICU, so his lungs could get stronger and to learn how to breathe, suck and
swallow during his bottle feedings. Now he is healthy and doing well. He just had
his ?rst birthday and loves watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Baby Einstein videos.
I am very thankful I get to stay home with our child. I enjoy teaching, playing
and keeping him healthy.

home is everything we have always wanted. It is a one-story, brick, ranch style
house on ?ve acres of land. We have plenty of room for raising a family and entertaining
family and friends. When we bought this house we envisioned a playroom full of fun
