Dear Expectant Mother,
Thank you so much for giving us this opportunity to introduce
ourselves and tell you about our family. We are Kendall and Heather. We are
grateful that you love your unborn child so much that you are willing to
consider an adoption plan. We have already been blessed to become parents
through adoption, so we understand that words cannot express the love between
parents and their child. Our family grew by adoption in November 2015 when our
daughter, Berkley Rae, was born. She is truly our pride and joy.
We are from the great state of Wisconsin. We met ten years ago and
since our first date, we have been inseparable. We were married in 2011.
Since, we have experienced the heartbreak of infertility after years of trying
on our own. We both believe that our struggle to conceive led us to this
amazing journey of adoption. We know without you, our dreams of becoming
parents again would never become a reality.
We live in a small town in a beautiful, three-bedroom ranch home.
Our home is full of love and laughter, and of course, our dog Gia. We
love to take her and Berkley on long walks and play fetch with her in our yard.
We are lucky enough to live two blocks from the local park and five minutes
from all the schools. One of our greatest joys is spending time with Berkley.
We love taking her to the park, swimming, or simply just going to get ice
cream. Family and friends are everything to us and we like to invite them
over for cookouts on our deck, bonfires in our driveway, or gatherings to
celebrate a Wisconsin Badger or Green Bay Packer game day. We think that our
greatest responsibility as parents is to ensure that Berkley and any other
children we are fortunate to parent, know God and know that they are loved by
us. Faith and family are the foundation of our lives.
What makes us unique is that we are both teachers in the same
school district. Kendall teaches at the middle school level and Heather teaches
at the high school level. Since our careers are very family friendly, we
have already started to experience summers off and long holiday breaks with
Berkley. We are looking forward to taking Berkley and her future brother or
sister to Disney Land, waterparks, camping, boating, and of course Wisconsin
Badger sporting events. We now know that our life journey is to grow our family
through adoption and we cannot wait to bring another child into our home.
Again, we are so thankful you took the time to learn about us. We
can’t wait to meet you and support you through this journey. We promise your
child will have the best life possible and always feel loved, protected, and
celebrated. Our support system is amazing and they are just as excited about
our journey to adopt again as we are. We can’t wait to bring Berkley home
a brother or sister!
