Dear Expectant Mother,
You are our miracle. The gift you are considering presenting to us is priceless, and we will be forever grateful. Words cannot describe this selfless decision, and we admire the loving, resilient, courageous, trusting, and generous nature you must have.
Our passion to become parents is one of deep conviction. The journey we have taken to get to this point has not been without struggle, but we know that our struggles only make us stronger as a couple. The love we share is unbreakable, and our combined passion continues to drive our life path.
Though we don’t know each other yet, we look forward to the opportunity to show you our passion for life, our excitement for the future, and our genuine, caring nature. We are thrilled at the possibility to provide your child with a life full of love, laughter, adventure, travel, and faith. We promise to honor your gift by ensuring this child is always safe and loved beyond measure.
We are Sarah and Amy from Wisconsin, and our life together is one of daily adventures and true passion. For the past three years, we have been committed to supporting each other’s dreams and building a life together. Amy has been working in urban education for the past twelve years and is an elementary school principal. Sarah has been working in the corporate business world since 2009 and currently is an operations and sales manager. We are avid DIY’ers; there is no project too big for us to tackle, from replacing floors to installing ceiling fans. We attack each project with a team mentality and a positive attitude. We are grounded in our values of family, integrity, ambition, loyalty and exploration.
We live in a quiet cul-de-sac on the outer edge of town. We have a large outdoor deck that faces a wooded area, in which we enjoy campfires and cook outs with family and friends. Our small garden is blooming throughout the summer and many ingredients from the garden are used while cooking. Our neighborhood has many family friendly events, including an annual Easter egg hunt, an outdoor Christmas decorating contest, and bi-yearly neighborhood bashes in which bounce houses are set up and the street is closed for family fun games. We have three nearby parks in which we walk our dog and/or bike ride. There are numerous hiking trails and outdoor pools that we also spend considerable amounts of time at during the summer.
Our Extended Family
We both grew up in the country. Sarah’s childhood involved time spent outdoors with her father and baking with her mother. She can bait a fishing hook like a pro and often goes ice fishing during the winter with her father and her younger sister. Sarah grew up camping and still loves being outside. Sarah and her sister were very active in high school and college; both played sports and were involved in church activities. Sarah’s family lives a short drive away and often visits.
Amy’s childhood involved playing sports with her brother and learning the family trade of carpentry on the weekends. Amy and her mother are very close and daily phone calls are typical. Amy played sports in high school and college and loves coaching in the community. Amy and her brother have a friendly competition every year for the most creative Halloween and Christmas outdoor light display; a passion for holiday outdoor lighting was one that Amy’s father has passed down to both his children. Amy’s family participates in the annual hometown summer parade, where they creatively decorate a float for a chance to win a traveling trophy. Amy’s parents live two hours away but often drive down for day trips and special occasions.
What Led Us To Adoption
We like to think of ourselves as loving, imaginative, responsible. and funny people, and unless our friends and family have been lying to us, we are not far off the mark. We are passionate to become parents, and the adoption process gives us hope to grow our family. When we first started talking about expanding our family, adoption was our first choice. We have family and friends who have been a part of the adoption process and have seen firsthand how love grows from the heart.
