Dear Expectant Mother,
Thank you for taking the time to consider our profile. We understand this decision was not an easy one, and this time in your life is scary and very emotional. We would like to express to you that we will love your baby with a love that cannot be explained with words. We will provide an encouraging, supportive and nurturing environment for him or her. We will do everything in our power to help them achieve their dreams.
The loss of our son was devastating, and we could never express the gratefulness we feel for you in choosing us. You have given us a new hope, by fulfilling our dreams of being a family. Know that your baby will always have a guardian angel looking over them. Our worlds will revolve around your child and fulfilling their every need. The whole family is forever changed for the better with the addition of your little one. Each and every one will love and cherish him or her for their lifetime.
Without you, we would not be able to grow our family, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our dreams come true.
We met at work. We worked in different sections but interacted with each other quite a bit. Our first date was mini golfing, which is an activity we continue to enjoy today. We enjoy the beach, going to museums, hanging out with family and friends, and going to baseball games. We are both easygoing and love to laugh, and we just enjoy being together. We really like anything space related and have seen three out of the four space shuttles. Leanne works at a package distribution company, and Cara works full time for the Army National Guard. Leanne is a youth softball coach and has been involved in the game since she was five years old. Cara enjoys drawing, painting, and especially photography. She is currently in school to become a psychologist, graduating in December 2019, and would like to obtain her Ph.D. in pediatric neuropsychology.
We live in a two-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bath, two-story townhouse. The kitchen and dining room are one large room. The neighborhood is quiet, with an elementary school across the street and a park right down the street. There is an amusement park nearby as well as zoos and aquariums within driving distance. We also have a dog. He is a beabull—a beagle, bulldog mix. He has a bed that we made for him in the living room so he can spend time with us, chewing on his favorite green ball and loving his belly rubs.
Our Extended Family
Leanne has two younger brothers and a sister. Her mother and father are still together and have been married for over forty years. The oldest of the two brothers has two kids, a boy and a girl. Her sister also has two children, a boy and a girl, and one is engaged. Leanne has a number of cousins whom she sees when the family gets together for holiday events as well as a grandfather on her mother’s side. Cara has an older brother, and her mother and father were married 33 years before her father passed away.
The family enjoys going to baseball games and taking family vacations together. We all like to go watch the kids play in their various sports or just hang out together. We know that family does not have to be from blood. Being both veteran and active military members, we have had the unique opportunity to grow our family further. They originate from many areas of the country, and we enjoy traveling to see them and spending time with them.
What Led Us To Adoption
There are many aspects to adoption that are exciting to us: being woken up in the middle of the night, watching a child grow and learn, hearing them call us mommy and momma, and sharing all of the love we have for each other with a child. From the beginning of our relationship, we have discussed wanting to adopt a child, and we know there is a child out there for us. A few years ago we became pregnant and were over the moon with excitement. At 22 weeks gestation, Leanne suffered a placental abruption, and our son was born. He lived for three hours, and we were devastated. We haven’t given up our dream of growing our family and know our path is through the miracle of adoption.
