words are some of the strangest we’ve ever had to write. In just a few
paragraphs, we’re supposed to show you how awesome we think we would be as
parents and how amazing it would be to have you choose us! It’s like the ultimate
writing test at the end of high school, where you’re supposed to tell the world
why you’re ready to be an adult. Although this time, we have to convince you
that not only can we raise your child, but that we would be the best possible
choice out of everyone else you’re considering for this wonderful chance.
imagine it takes so much courage to trust someone else in raising your baby. We
are grateful for the chance to tell you about our family and why you should
choose us. We can’t have children “the easy way”. In order to have kids we
would have to do IVF and that is not something we are interested in. Adoption,
however, is something that Karli has dreamed about since she was 5-years-old. Her
childhood best friend was adopted and Karli always thought she’d love to have a
child that way as well.
met and were friends several years in between us dating, falling in love, and
making the decision to build a life together. Larry is already an astounding
dad to an 11-year-old boy and Karli has always had an incredible relationship
with the kids in her life. It was a pretty easy decision to choose to become
parents together and show how much love and adventure we still have to give.
both have a great love for the outdoors: hiking, camping, off-roading, and
anything else that gets us outside. We also love our home and spending time
hanging out with friends and family. It is a home that includes 2 Rottweilers,
1 Pit/Lab mix, and 3 fuzzy cats. Our home is sometimes very loud, very busy, and
very full of awesome times and a crazy amount of love.
won’t be something that completes us. We are very happy as we are now. It is
something that will add to this amazing life we already have. Being chosen and
allowed to raise your child will give us so many more opportunities for
adventure, fun, and excitement and most importantly love. We can imagine
teaching your child how to jump into our pool and swim during the summer, how to
ride a quad during the winter, how to be heard in an overwhelmingly huge and extended
family, and how to love. We can see how excited our family will be to have this
new member that they can spoil and send home to us on a sugar high after
staying up all night watching movies we wouldn’t normally let them watch.
all this writing, we still aren’t entirely sure how to convince you that we
would make an amazing, adventure -filled, loving life for your child. We know
that this isn’t a decision to be entered into lightly, and we hope you can see
how much we have to offer that precious baby of yours. We can’t promise that we
won’t make mistakes, as everyone does. But we can promise that your baby will always
know what it’s like to be loved and adored. We can also promise that he or she
will always know how much we love you for giving us a life that we only dreamed
you so very much and we hope to meet and get to know you soon!
