Dear Expectant Mother,
We cannot thank you enough for taking the time to read our profile and consider us as parents for your child. It is an honor to us for you to be reading our words, and we are so grateful for the opportunity to share our story. We cannot begin to understand how you are feeling, but we want to bring you comfort in knowing that we are here to support you throughout this process.
With thousands of words to choose from, it’s hard to find the right ones to showcase how much love we have for our future child. We cannot wait to nurture them, care for them, and support them throughout the years. We look forward to continuing family traditions while also creating new ones. We are yearning for that final puzzle piece that will help complete our family portrait.
Choosing us as your child’s parents will provide us with the opportunity to create the family we aspire to have, and it would not be possible without your help. You will be forever be connected to us in our hearts, and your gift of family will be cherished infinitely.
We met in college in 2012 and have been inseparable ever since, even having our dream wedding in 2017, surrounded by all of our family and friends. Our strengths as a couple are that we work together as a team and support each other in all aspects of life. We level each other out as our individual strengths compliment us as a whole. Randy is a middle school Language Arts teacher, and he currently teaches at a STEM+M school in Ohio, where he is actively engaged with his school community. Dalton works as a historic preservationist/interior designer, and his firm focuses on historical architecture, preservation, and adaptive reuse. Our jobs represent how we compliment each other in our relationship: Randy is very organized when it comes to maintaining our home, and Dalton is very resourceful when it comes to fixing things and completing projects around the house.
When we first toured our home, we instantly fell in love with its charm and history. Our home is a 1936 Colonial with a beautiful covered porch, tucked away in a quiet suburban neighborhood. We picture our future children riding their bicycles along the sidewalks and trick-or-treating on Halloween. The home sits on a corner lot with a wealth of blooms that rotate throughout the seasons. We particularly love our breakfast nook in the kitchen and our two cozy fireplaces to warm up next to on those cold winter days. We share our space with our rescue dog, Piper, and our cat, Paige. We are only the fourth owners of this historic home, and we look forward to keeping it in the family for many generations to come.
Our Extended Family
We both have very large families, which means we’re surrounded by so many who cannot wait to love your child. With our families combined, your child will be loved by eight aunts, two uncles, and 21 cousins. We look forward to your child experiencing our many special family traditions, such as attending parades during the holidays, watching fireworks on the Fourth of July, and baking cookies for Christmas. Every moment spent together will produce an abundance of fruitful memories that will strengthen and nurture our bond as a family. We believe time together is priceless.
We’re surrounded by a family who loves and supports us, as they cannot wait to welcome your child into our lives. There are plenty of children in the family with whom to grow with and share experiences that will last a lifetime.
What Led Us To Adoption
Family is at the center of our hearts and souls, as we cannot wait to provide your child with an abundance of unconditional love and support. We never questioned if adoption was the answer, as this is how we have always pictured our family becoming whole. Parenthood has always been on our minds, as we have built up our lives in anticipation of our adoption journey. We cannot wait to share the experience of love and joy with your child as we embark on this next chapter.
