Dear Expectant Mother,
First and foremost, we want to thank you for taking the time to read our profile and getting to know us. Your consideration of an adoption plan courageous and selfless. Second, thank you for considering us, to be adoptive parents for your baby. We are both eager to become Dads and to extend our family. If you choose us as adoptive parents, we want to give your baby a full life, filled with support, care, and an endless supply of love. We want to nurture and teach your baby, so he or she grows up to be a well-rounded, accepting adult, with the drive and ability to achieve any goals he or she wishes to pursue. Take your time in looking over our profile. Hopefully, you will see and feel the love we have - the love we want to share and give to your baby. The choice you have is a great one, and we hope that you will consider us to be the adoptive parents to your baby. Thank you.
We met almost 13 years ago through a dear friend and Chad's sister. Less than a year later, we started dating. We have been happily married for over nine years now. We are a great example of the statement, "opposites attract." Mitch grew up in a small town, while Chad grew up on a farm. Mitch's interests including singing, cooking, baking, and doing crafts (for both his craft business and for fun). Chad's interests include yard work, working on cars, and spending time in the great outdoors. Their varied interests make them a well-rounded couple, each complimenting the other. Their love for each other continues to grow.
We currently live in a five-bedroom, split-level home, in a quiet and peaceful neighborhood. We currently share our home with a dear friend and her family, whom we love. She was previously our hopeful surrogate. We also share our home with our "fur-babies." Our 15-year-old pug, Pepper, acts like she is still a puppy. Our six-year-old Bichon-Dachshund, Harley, loves to cuddle and watch movies, mainly for some popcorn. And our nine-year-old, three-legged cat, Socks, loves to cuddle when she wants to - but she very independent.
Our Extended Family
Family is very important to both of us. We both come from loving and close families. In our families, spending time together is always a high priority. We get together with each side for most holidays, birthdays, or just to do dinners. Many times we will host and bring both families
together. When we are all together, we are just one big family.
Mitch is the youngest of three siblings, with an older brother and an older sister. His parents celebrated 51 years of marriage together until his mom lost her battle to cancer in 2014. To anyone who knew them, they were the picture of a loving, caring, perfect couple, that all relationships strive to achieve. Mitch and his sister, and her family live in the same town, and his brother and his family live within on-an-a-half hours of them.
Chad is the eldest sibling of three, with a younger brother and a younger sister. Chad's parents have been happily married for 38 years. Both his siblings and their families live in the same town as us, and his parents live within 30 minutes. We spend a lot of time with his family, celebrating birthdays, holidays, and other special occasions.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have both wanted to have children and a large family since before we even met each other. On our second date, one of the main topics of conversation was children and raising a family. We both had the same vision for our family. Adoption has also been part of our plan for a family. After five years of unsuccessful and heartbreaking surrogacy with a dear friend, we decided that we all needed to step back and give ourselves, our bodies, and our hearts a rest. We decided to begin our journey of adoption.
