our adoption profile

Marcus & Benjamin

dear expectant mother

We would first like to thank you for taking the time to view our profile. We’re extremely proud of your selfless act of courage while making this decision. We are so grateful for the opportunity to be considered to raise your baby and can only imagine how scary and difficult this decision is for you, but rest assured we will be there for you every step of the way. We can ensure not a day will go by when your baby wouldn’t feel loved and valued.

Although we haven’t met each other yet, we look forward to developing an open relationship with you at any level you’re comfortable with. We could never match your sacrifice, but we will make certain your baby is loved unconditionally and has all of the support needed throughout their lifetime. We will do everything in our power to meet your baby’s every need by providing a stable and loving home environment and the best education opportunities and, most importantly, ensuring your baby is always safe from harm.

The words “thank you” just aren’t enough. We hope you truly know how grateful we are for your consideration. We hope wherever your journey leads you, you have comfort in knowing your baby is loved, is safe, and has an abundance of support.

Adoption provides the opportunity for us to become parents while working with a mother so her hopes and dreams are fulfilled. We’re so excited for the opportunity to become parents and look forward to welcoming a baby into our lives.

About Us

We first laid eyes on each other 13 years ago at a local night club; however, neither of us had the courage to speak. A week later, we found each other on a social app and started dating. After Benjamin was relocated to another state, we attempted to do long distance with the hope of one day living in the same state again. Unfortunately, that time didn’t come soon enough, so we made the difficult decision to go our separate ways, remaining in touch over the years. In 2015 we ran into each other in an airport. We spoke for a brief moment, learning we both were residing in the same state. In 2018 we were married, promising never to leave each other’s side again. Benjamin is Vice President of Operations at a leading healthcare information management company, and Marcus is a business architect consultant for a leading insurance company.

Our Home & Pets

Last year we were fortunate to have our home built, which consists of five bedrooms and three and a half baths and is nestled in the heart of a major city. We share our home with our two puppies: Legend, a Yorkshire, and Simba, a Maltese Yorkshire mix. Our favorite room in our house is the theater/game room. We love watching movies and entertaining friends and family. Our subdivision consists of a lake, walking trails, a playground, and our very own charter school. Soon to come is a clubhouse with a swimming pool and fitness center. We’re just a short drive to the zoo, aquarium, museums, and shopping.

Our Extended Family

Our family and friends are an extremely important part of our lives. We’re so blessed to have an incredible support system. Traditionally we spend holidays with both family and friends. For Christmas and Thanksgiving, we either go out of town together to visit our immediate families, including parents, siblings, nieces and nephews, and aunts and uncles, in Michigan or Texas. If we decide to stay in town, we host dinner at our house for family and friends who may not have family locally. We love entertaining our family and friends, and on any given weekend, we may host a game night or movie night and even Sunday dinners.

Birthdays are very important to us, and for our birthdays, we love to take trips either domestically or internationally. Last year for Benjamin’s birthday, we rented a villa in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, where we went scuba diving and explored other landmarks. We look forward to one day being able to experience these trips with a little one and being able to take our child to Disney World.

What Led Us To Adoption

Watching the joy of parenthood in the lives of our siblings, we knew one day we wanted to experience that feeling. In 2017 we started researching our options, and hands down, we knew adoption was the perfect path for us to grow our family. Adoption provides the opportunity for us to become parents while working with a mother so her hopes and dreams are fulfilled. We’re so excited for the opportunity to become parents and look forward to welcoming a baby into our lives.
