Dear Expectant Mother,
We cannot imagine what a difficult decision this must be for you to make or what the circumstances were to bring you to this decision. We thank you though for considering us for this precious gift of life. We aren’t perfect people nor will we claim to be perfect parents. All we know is that deep in our hearts we have a lot of love to give and want to share it with others. Children fill a special place in our heart and we would love the opportunity to share what we have with a child. We feel that we are financially sound and live in a great place to raise kids. Tom has a daycare at the hospital where he works and the school systems around are excellent when it comes time for that. We have a large house with plenty of room for children and the baby would have his/her own room. We want to share all of that with which we have been blessed with your child.
It takes a village to raise a child. We have the support of our respective families and Hank’s mom can’t wait to have a grandbaby. Tom’s parents and brother and sister-in-law live just down the road and have 4 young children of their own. They all eagerly await the time when they can welcome a new child into the family. Tom’s mom is quite the cook and family gatherings are almost a weekly occurrence. Rest assured, your child will be loved.
Whatever has brought you to this point in your life, we would like to take this journey with you. We are happy to arrange visits, provide photos, and send update letters if you would still like to be a part of your child’s life. We want him/her to know his/her mother and the incredible sacrifice she made for her child but only if you want the same.
Thank you for taking the time to read our profile and we hope to meet you in the near future.
We met in Virginia while Tom was in college and Hank was flying for a small airline. We took a walk around the park and went to see a movie and had an instant connection. Life, however, took us in separate directions for a while and gave us time to mature. 15 years later, we reconnected and have been together ever since! We both love flying, traveling, boating, tubing and skiing.
We have a nice large house with 4 bedrooms in a suburban neighborhood in Indiana with lots of kids and parks. We have 3 very sweet dogs–Katie, Sam, and Bailey–and 2 cats–Aaron and Amy. Katie and Sam are very protective of our nephews and Katie loves to play in the mud with them! Sam loves playing ball and Bailey is 15 years old and loves to snuggle.
Our Extended Family
We were both born in Virginia but Hank moved to Louisiana shortly after his birth while Tom grew up in the Tidewater area. Hank has a sister, 3 nephews, and mother who are still living. His mother lives in Mississippi now and we enjoy taking the dogs on a road trip down to see her about once a year.
Tom’s mother and father are still alive and moved from Arizona to Indiana to be closer to Tom. Tom’s brother has also moved to Indiana from Virginia to be closer to family and has 4 children of his own. Tom’s aunts, uncles, and cousins also live in Indiana.
Family is very important to us and we meet once a week or so to have family get-togethers and game nights where we enjoy playing cards and board games. One of our favorite traditions is to have Tom’s family over to our house for Thanksgiving. We celebrate each of our nephew’s birthdays by getting together and having a party, we also enjoy attending their sporting events and any activities they do for school. We absolutely love spending time with our family and hope to share these activities with a child.
What Led Us To Adoption
We love kids! We’ve always wanted to be dads but could never find the right partner to have kids with until we met each other. After spending a lot of time together and making sure our relationship was solid, we started discussing having children of our own. Family is very important to us and we’re ready to start making our own little family. We would like to give a child all the chances in life we’ve had. We feel we’re ready for the challenges of parenting and hope to be good ones!
