Ainsley & Darian

Dear Expectant Mother,

How can words like “thank you” begin to encompass the gratitude we have? As inadequate as the words may be, thank you for considering us as a potential home to welcome your child. We can’t begin to understand how difficult this decision may be for you, but we want you to know that all we want is for your child to be in a happy and loving home-no matter where that might be.

We want you to know that you will always have a special place in the story of how our family was created. The love and caring that is going into your decision will be a part of the story of why you chose adoption.

We have chosen adoption for many reasons, not the least of which is Darian’s experience with her father’s family, who welcomed him (and then us) into their home with such love and affection that it left a mark on us all. From both sides or our families, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, nephews and a niece are all hoping to add their thanks to ours for an addition to our family. If we are fortunate enough to be chosen by you, your child will have a family by his or her side. We cannot promise a life free of pain, but we can promise to be there through good times and bad, loving your child unconditionally.

Thank you again for considering us. I hope you always know the joy and love you have created by choosing adoption.


About Us

contact

We frequently have "I love our life" moments when we are doing just about anything: the dishes/cleaning, reading, playing with our dogs, or watching TV; those moments when one or both of us will just look up and realize how much we love each other and what we've built together (cheesy, but true). Though teaching and engineering are very different careers, we enjoy our work and sharing the successes and challenges of our days over dinner. We enjoy spending our evenings reading, watching movies/TV, and/or playing board games. We also enjoy camping, traveling, and playing video games. We occasionally work out together and Ainsley plays “team mom” to Darian’s flag football team.


Our Home

contact

We live in a relatively small town in a quiet neighborhood of mostly families. Our home was chosen to be grown into with a good-sized yard that has a swing and little playground. Our dogs (Callie and Hilo) and cat (Guinan) are wonderful and we see many of our neighbors on our walks with our dogs.


Our Extended Family

contact

We both come from small immediate families with large extended families and both of our families are into holidays in a big way.
The sugar cookies, oh the sugar cookies!

With Darian’s family, we elaborately decorate cookies (including Christmas bats) and with Ainsley’s family, it is all about the huge array of cookie cutter shape options (shapes for all holidays…and Star Wars)!

At family functions, including birthdays, our families enjoy playing board games, cards, or putting together puzzles. We are close to our immediate families, seeing them sometimes on a weekly basis. In the summer, we play sand volleyball with Ainsley’s family – brother and sister-in-law, mother, sister, and our little niece and Ainsley’s grandma serve as the team cheerleaders. We also go on an annual family camping trip for Darian’s father’s birthday, visiting new state parks and landmarks each year.

Our extended family also includes a tight knit group of friends, all of whom have small children and though we love being aunties, we look forward to also being mothers.


What Led Us To Adoption

contact

Adoption has always been something we have talked about as an option to build our family. Darian’s dad was adopted and she was always taught that families are the people you love, not just who shares your DNA. After trying to become pregnant for two years, we realized that it was time to change what we were doing. So now we are hoping to provide a loving and supportive home for our adopted child.
