Dear Expectant Mother,
We are grateful that you are considering us to be parents for your baby. When we think of your decision in sharing your child with us, we can’t begin to imagine how difficult this is for you. Is this the right couple for my child? Will my child grow up in a home full of unconditional love and support? Will my child know that my decision was an act of incredible courage and love? We can promise you the answer to all these questions will be YES!
We believe that fatherhood begins with unconditional love, modeling upright character, creating a curiosity in our world, and a desire to serve and help others. At the appropriate time in the child’s development, we will share your story and the courageous decision you made in sharing your child with us. He or she will always have a part of you in his or her heart.
We want to provide your child with lots of laughs and experiences. We promise to love unconditionally, protect, and care for your child. We promise to be someone they can lean on during the bad times and to be their biggest cheerleaders throughout life.
We thank you for trusting us on this journey with you through parenthood. We are excited to meet you and learn about your dreams and hopes should you want to share that with us.
Erik was adopted at birth and grew up in Texas. At the appropriate age, his parents informed him that he was adopted. He has never doubted the love of his parents or those who made the courageous decision to place him into a loving adoptive family.
Greg was born and raised in Central Florida and moved to Tennessee to attend college. We both come from families with limited resources, but they provided us with unconditional love, which we can’t wait to share with your child! Both of us were first-generation college students, and we both received master’s degrees. We have a strong passion for aerospace, which led us to our careers. We met on a flight from Atlanta to Washington, which turned out to be “love at first flight!” Seven years later, we said our I do’s.
We live in a beautiful, quaint, and safe neighborhood, where many of our neighbors have become our closest friends. We have a four-bedroom, three-bath house that sits on roughly two acres of land. We are blessed to have great schools in our school district, all of them being in the top 10% in our state. We are close to several attractions, parks, and historical sites to enjoy with our future family. We cannot wait to teach your child how to ride a bike, see them make friends, take them to the park, and enjoy all that our community has to offer!
We have a black lab puppy named Oreo who is excited to have your child go on walks and play catch with her!
Our Extended Family
Although we come from small families, they are a big part of our lives and have been a foundation in our marriage. We talk to our immediate families every day, and they have been great support systems to the both of us over the years. Our most cherished family memories growing up involve gathering and spending time with family over the holidays. We would all help prepare the holiday feast, play games, and celebrate the day. Sharing the love, joy, and company with our families over the holidays not only created new experiences for both of us but gave us a greater understanding of the importance of family.
Together, we have established several traditions throughout the year. One of our favorites is our annual New York City Christmas trip. Every year we travel up to the Big Apple to celebrate the holiday season. We see the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree and a few shows and enjoy the excitement of the holidays in New York City! We also enjoy taking a yearly cruise to visit the islands. We can promise you that your child will be well traveled and will gain an appreciation for the world around them!
What Led Us To Adoption
Our adoption story wouldn’t be possible if it wasn’t for you. We have dreamed of becoming parents since the beginning of our relationship. With our love for each other and our faith in God, we believe the opportunity to adopt is one of the greatest joys life has to offer. As Erik was adopted into a nurturing family, we both appreciate the values of love, courage, and commitment everyone has in this gift from one family to another. You are part of our adoption story, and we want to assure you that your child will be loved, cared for, and provided with every opportunity to reach his or her full potential. Your child will know of your bravery, selflessness, and love.
