Dear Expectant Mother,
Thank you for your strength & courage to consider adoption. We are beyond humbled and thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We cannot imagine the decision that lies ahead of you and we appreciate you taking the time to consider us as adoptive parents for your child.
We truly are best friends and love each other more than we ever thought we could. Our relationship is built on love, trust, honesty, communication and the pursuit of living whole-heartedly. We complement each other in deep and abiding ways.
Our home is full of love and we can’t wait to share that love with a little bundle of joy. April and I have very much wanted to create a family of our own through adoption. In fact, adoption has been the only way that we have wanted to create our family as we are called to sharing our lives in this way. The only missing piece is a child to love and care for.
Our Promise As Parents
• To be extremely open about your child’s adoption and your love.
• To raise your child in a supportive and loving environment.
• To provide opportunities and experiences and to celebrate their achievements.
• To inspire your child to be the best person they can be & to dream big.
We are so excited about the possibility to adopt & have a lifelong relationship with you!
We have been together for 10 years and we are thrilled to have found each other and to be married. We love to travel, eat & cook good food, be active and have new adventures. Nicole works as a Trainer and Life Coach, and April is a High School Math Teacher. Nicole is loving and a great listener, while April is outgoing & carefree. Together, we make an amazing team. We love being with kids and can’t wait to share our lives with a little one.
We purchased a home in 2010 that was built in 1946 and we completely gutted and remodeled every square inch! April is uniquely skilled at remodel homes; Building beautiful furniture and bringing back the beauty once lost.
Our home has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, beautiful hardwood floors throughout, a cedar privacy fence around the whole yard and is located in a diverse and vibrant neighborhood. Most evenings you will find us in our backyard enjoying our garden, barbecuing and sharing time with our neighbors and their kids.
Our Extended Family
We both come from families who are loving, supportive and very honoring & upholding of one another. We have no brothers between us as Nicole has 3 sisters and April has 2 sisters. We have many nephews and godsons to round us out! We live in the Midwest near April’s Family and Nicole’s Family is spread out across the US.
One of our favorite activities together is spending time with our families grilling, boating, hiking, biking, remodeling homes, playing football, games and much more. Our families are very important to us, and we make it a priority to stay close with them.
Our favorite holiday traditions include a family Thanksgiving with Nicole’s Family and Christmas with April’s Family plus a big annual Easter egg hunt for all of our nieces and nephews on Easter morning.
We hope for the day when we are graced with a little one to welcome into our home and into our love.
What Led Us To Adoption
After being together 10 years and married for 3 years, we have always wanted to be parents. After settling into our newly remodeled home, we know that the timing is perfect. We have had it in our hearts to adopt for a long while and we can’t wait to welcome and love a child! Our families are extremely excited & supportive!
