||First of all, thank you for having the strength to choose adoption for your child. I greatly admire your decision, and without people like you we may never have the chance to be parents. We know that you will find the right family to love and care for your child. My husband and I have a deep desire to start a family. We know that we have many gifts within us that we want to share with a child.
David is 27, and the youngest of three children. His parents divorced when he was very young and that taught him a lot about what a family should and shouldn’t be like. Fortunately, he remains close with all of his family members. David was blessed with a great sense of humor. He can always make people around him smile and he seems to get along with everybody. He has a love of technology. It seems like he is the on call IT support for everyone in the family. He also has a great passion for animals, especially dogs. David challenges himself to be a better man every day.
I am 26, the younger of two children and the only daughter of loving, devoted parents. My father passed away when I was 15 and it was a really difficult time in my life but thanks to my faith, and the love and support of my family, I made it through. I come from an extremely close family that had Sunday dinners at my grandparent’s house with aunts and cousins all around. I hope to have that with a child too. I like to think that I am a kind person who always thinks of the wants and needs of others before my own. I have a great love of arts and crafts. Being creative and making things is my favorite hobby.
David and I met in high school but were just friends. After graduation we lost touch, but a few years later we reconnected and we both knew we were meant for each other. I went home from our first date and told my mom “I going to marry him someday.” And so it was. We were married November 3, 2009. We have a lot of blessings in our life…we own our home, we have the best families and wonderful pets, but still something is missing. We tried to conceive for years without success. We’ve done fertility treatment, yet nothing worked. Adoption is our glimmer of hope that we can be the parents we know we are meant to be.
This past year…
David and I started our adoption journey a little over a year ago. We didn’t really know what to expect but knew that there was a child out there for us and God would lead us to him/her. We were matched with an expectant mother who was wonderful. She was kind and her family was so supportive of her choice. She lived a few hours away from us and we went to see her and her family a couple of times before the birth. She was scheduled for a c-section in September and she asked us to be there so we planned a trip. It was the most exciting and most stressful time of our lives. David and I got to spend a lot of time in the hospital with the baby. We thought our prayers had been answered. A couple of days later, the birthmother decided not to go through with the adoption. We understood how difficult of a decision it must have been, but we were heartbroken. We know now looking back on it that it wasn’t God’s will and we weren’t meant to be parents to that child, but we still have faith that someday it will be our time.
Our promise to you…
Your gift will be such a tremendous blessing to our family. Your soon to be born baby with be showered with love and affection from not just David and I, but our entire families. We will teach him or her about the very special way they joined our family and we will always celebrate you as their birthmother. Thank you for considering us as adoptive parents and we wish you the very best as you go through this difficult journey.
