Dear Expectant Mother,
We admire your decision to provide life for your child and it is an honor to consider us as a worthy option to raise your baby. The roller-coaster ride of emotions you are experiencing leads to ultimately taking one of the largest risks: choosing a couple to trust with your flesh and blood. Trusting us means you will never be forgotten in our family, as your child will know how brave you are and will know about your love.
Our family has a solid foundation consisting of communication, balance, and patience. Your baby will be raised in a home with opportunity, openness, and an abundant amount of love. We believe all choices are a learning opportunity and a time to communicate thoughts and feelings; therefore, guiding your child to become a caring, confident, and independent person. The possibilities are endless for your baby, and we will ensure a lifetime of love and support.
We are here to support you through the journey and hope the trust and bond we create will last for a long time. This is your baby, your heart, and your process, and we will respect the pace you want to go throughout this journey.
We are an active, fun, and loving couple. While both of us were playing in a kickball league (Mollie enjoying the competitive aspect of the game and Libby enjoying the socialization), mutual friends introduced us, and we have been together going on five years strong! As an elementary school counselor, Libby works hard every day to ensure students receive loving support and education. Mollie is a manager for a contact center and is passionate about teamwork and excellent customer service. In the summer, we enjoy packing up the car and our dogs to go boating and camping. In the spring, we take a yearly trip to the mountains to take in the fresh air and go skiing and snowboarding. The rest of the year is filled with walks with our rescue dogs, Brogan and Clover, as well as hiking, biking, reading, and plenty of quality time with our family and friends.
We recently moved to our neighborhood in preparation for your child to be part of our family. Your child will live in a ranch-style home with a large yard in an excellent school district. Within walking distance is a playground and sports fields, where we will go with your child to play and enjoy the outdoors. During these outings, we take our two small dogs, and sometimes the neighbors and their children will join us. Family moments when we are indoors consist of reading, completing a puzzle, playing ping pong, or playing board games. We regularly attend community family-focused events and parades and visit our family and friends’ houses, where your child will create friendships and memories.
Our Extended Family
Our parents have multiple siblings, which gives us the benefit of many cousins, aunts, and uncles. We are fortunate to have our extended family in the same city, so your child will have plenty of attention and care. All four of our parents are thrilled about the opportunity to help with your baby, especially cuddle time and our nephews continue to ask for a new little family addition to provide love and protection to your baby.
We want to teach your baby how to snow ski or snowboard on our annual trip to the mountains. In the summer, we will teach your child swimming, tubing, camping, and water skiing. We look forward to creating new traditions with your baby. Such traditions will include special birthday outings, taking your child to the zoo to see the Christmas lights, going to the pumpkin patch, and enjoying Easter egg hunts.
We cannot wait to have your child join us for the Christmas celebrations with our family. On Christmas Eve, we have dinner and everyone wears Christmas hats and sings carols together. Christmas day is filled with multiple celebrations with both sets of grandparents and extended family, along with opening presents at each location.
What Led Us To Adoption
Raising children in our loving home is our dream. Our friends and family have shared their personal experiences of either physically having children, fostering, or adopting, and we knew adopting was a thrilling option for us. Our friends’ adoption stories excite us because of the tremendous amount of positive impact that can occur between so many people when working together. Listening to their successful and loving experiences, in addition to all the stories we have read, gives us great hope that our family will feel more whole.
