Lamonica & Christi

Dear Expectant Mother,

We want to first start off by saying thank you. Although we don’t know your specific journey, we cannot express how much gratitude we have for you and the brave and difficult decision you are making. The amount of strength and courage you have is immeasurable, and we promise that if chosen, we will make sure to not let your courageous decision go unnoticed. We are very excited to start a family, and we are honored that you are considering us to be a part of your journey.

We are a very family-oriented couple who loves spending time with our siblings, nieces and nephews, and extended family! Our family is thrilled at the thought of welcoming another baby and will no doubt spoil your child. We also have great friends whom we consider family. They are a big part of our support system and are eager to welcome a child into the group! We hope that by choosing us, you will find comfort that your baby will grow up in a loving home full of love, laughter, encouragement, acceptance, cultural diversity, and fun! We love to travel and experience cultures throughout the world, and we look forward to sharing that with your baby. We eagerly await getting to know you, your values, and what your hopes for your baby are. We promise to always speak positively about you and for your baby to know your difficult but loving decision helped to make our dreams a reality.


About Us

contact

We joke around that our first date never really ended two years ago. We started out as friends who met through our jobs. Lamonica was a training supervisor at a day program for individuals with intellectual disabilities, while Christi was a behavior consultant for some of the individuals who worked at the day program Lamonica supervised. A strong friendship was built initially, which naturally led to a strong relationship. We are each other’s best friend, support system, and partner in crime. We push each other to be the best version of ourselves and bring balance to the other when needed. Although we are not yet married, we knew very early on that we wanted to have a family together as we truly make an amazing team.


Our Home

contact

We currently own a two-story house in a middle-class neighborhood in northern Indiana. We live in a very diverse neighborhood with children of all ages. We are less than a mile from multiple parks as well as a nature center with playgrounds, hiking trails, ziplining, splash pads, and dog parks. We are less than an hour away from beautiful beaches and lakes, which we both enjoy going to and look forward to sharing with your baby. We have two dogs, Camden and Tegan. Camden is a rescue black lab/chow mix, and Tegan is a Shih-tzu. Both are great with kids, and we know they look forward to having a new brother or sister.


Our Extended Family

contact

All of Lamonica’s family live within two hours of us and are very close. She is the oldest of four siblings, with many half brothers and sisters as well. Lamonica has three aunts, four uncles, one nephew (with a niece on the way in July and another niece or nephew in December), and thirteen cousins. We spend every Easter at her grandmother’s house, where the adults hide dozens of Easter eggs for the kids to hunt for! This is one of Lamonica’s favorite holiday traditions we can’t wait to share with your baby.

Christi’s family consists of four aunts, four uncles, nine cousins, four nephews, and a niece. She is extremely close to her mother, father, stepmother, two sisters and brother in-law, and their children, whom she sees weekly. We spend every Christmas Eve at Christi’s father’s home with 20+ family members eating dinner, exchanging gifts, and playing games. When Christi was a little girl, every Christmas Eve before bed, her father would read the poem, “’Twas the Night Before Christmas” to her and her sister. This is one tradition we look forward to continuing with your baby as well as starting new traditions of our own!


What Led Us To Adoption

contact

We spent months weighing our options on the best way to build our family and felt adoption suited us best. We both have close friends who have been birthmothers, adoptive parents, and adopted children. All of them had very different stories, yet each situation was full of love, hope, and positivity. We have so much love to give a baby. We are open to any kind of adoption (open, semi-open, or closed) and look forward to expanding our family.
