Dear Expectant Mother,
We are humbled by your incredible courage and the strength that you so obviously possess. Although thank you seems much too simple and inadequate, we want you to know how blessed and thankful we feel by you taking the time to learn about us. We can only imagine the emotions you must be feeling; please know we do not take them granted. You have shown what ultimate, selfless love is by considering an adoption plan for your baby, and words can’t express the magnitude of respect and admiration we have for you! We hope to offer you some level of comfort in knowing we are committed to providing a safe home for your baby, who will be loved without bounds, in a home full of laughter, with the freedom to grow and learn, and where we lead by example in teaching the meaning of love, family, respect, and hard work.
Our entire family is overwhelmed with joy at the thought of a baby being a part of our family and experiencing life through a child’s eyes. Although there may be a tear to wipe or a band-aid needed now and then, we will be there every step of the way, showing your baby our love and
support, just as we want to do for you! Again, we thank you for considering us and for putting joy and excitement in our lives by doing so. May God continue to hold you in His hands through this journey and beyond.
We believe we were brought together by divine intervention, all due to a flying acorn. During our first date, an acorn came flying out of nowhere and almost hit Jeff in the face, ultimately breaking the ice. That acorn has become very symbolic in our lives and marriage. Just like the acorn, we have weathered the storms and enjoyed the sunshine together, and we have grown stronger from it all. We find enjoyment in whatever we are doing. Whether it be working out, going to a concert, a road trip, or just relaxing and watching movies, we enjoy it more if we are together. We are both successful business owners and are very passionate about our careers and helping people. Our patients/clients are like members of our extended family, as are our fur-babies: Leila, Tonka, and Ruger, who is a therapy dog and goes to our office with us daily.
We live in a quiet, family-oriented neighborhood. The neighborhood has a community swimming pool and bike and walking paths, and a playground is in the works. Moments away are multiple beaches, a beautiful riverwalk park, and the elementary school. Our home is a two-story, three-bedroom, 2 ½-bath house with an open living area. It’s perfect for cooking a meal together, doing homework at the kitchen island, or lounging together on the couch watching movies; everyone can be apart together. We have a bonus room over the garage that will be a great playroom. There is also a large fenced back yard with plenty of room to run around and play or sit on the patio and observe the wildlife.
Our Extended Family
We both come from loving families and get together with them every chance we get, especially for holidays and other celebrations. We look forward to introducing your baby to the family lake house where we go for Memorial Day to enjoy family time, cook out, play yard games, and take a ride on the pontoon boat. Or we, bundle up to go outside and make snow angels or a snowman during the winter holidays.
We can not express the amount of joy and excitement both of our families have expressed about having a baby join the family. Every last one of them has told us we will definitely be seeing more of them, and since family is a top priority for us, we couldn’t be happier to hear that. We are all looking forward to seeing and experiencing all of the firsts” through the eyes of a little one.
What Led Us To Adoption
After finding out infertility was keeping us from having a child together, we decided to explore what other avenues we could take. The perfect avenue seemed to come to us. One of Jeff’s patients randomly brought up that a doctor she was seeing was leaving to meet their new baby they were adopting. Intrigued, he asked if she knew how they went about the process, and she told Jeff about LifeLong Adoptions. Just like how we were brought together during our first date, this seemed to be God’s work. Jeff immediately told Nicole, and we contacted LifeLong that day. Nicole knows how much of a blessing adoption can be for a family as her aunt and uncle have two children through adoption.
