dear expectant mother

We would sincerely like to thank you for considering us to be mothers for your child. We deeply respect your courage and selflessness in choosing the best life for your baby. It would be our greatest honor to be given such an awesome blessing. It will be wonderful to get to know his or her beautiful spirit, and we look forward to exploring all the ways we can support him or her to thrive. We want to provide ample opportunities for creative, spiritual, artistic, and physical expression so your child will always remain a happy, healthy, and empowered human being. We are very excited to share with them our passion for travel, nature, music, art, cooking, and so much more.

We can only imagine the difficulty in this process for you and hope our enthusiasm and willingness to love your baby as our own will ease your heart and mind. Your child will always grow up knowing about you as part of the understanding of who they are and if you are wanting to remain in connection with them, we will greatly support this. We are here to support you in the best way we can so this transition will be as gentle as possible for you. Thank you again for your time and consideration in giving us the opportunity to care for your child throughout his or her life as this will be our greatest answered prayer.

About Us

We met eight years ago through mutual friends and soon discovered we had something very special. Our love includes being best friends, which enables us to go very deep in working on our relationship and allows us to hold space and trust in each other for our own healing and evolving. Personal growth is kind of a hobby of ours, and we are always striving to be better humans with each new day. Hiking or working in our garden are some of our favorite times together. We laugh often and have a lot of fun doing almost anything. Charlotte has been a chef for most of her career. Four years ago, she opened a very successful organic food truck. Stephanie has a massage therapy practice and works out of her studio, which is attached to our home. She has recently taken on a part-time job at our friend’s Waldorf-inspired preschool.

Our Home

We live in an amazing small town surrounded by mountains and next to a very large lake. Our home sits in a quiet, friendly, and safe neighborhood where we know most of our neighbors. We have a large fenced yard with a large garden as well as a lot of space to play. We have two rescue dogs, who inspire us to go walking every day in the mountains or along the lake. We also have a rescued kitten who is top dog. We are surrounded by a strong network of friends and community with children of all ages. There will always be many friends for your child to grow up with.

Our Extended Family

Our families are very excited about a new baby coming. Charlotte’s mom lives up the street and the rest of her family lives close by and will be a part of your baby’s day-to-day life. We take time to share birthdays, have meals together, play games, and go swimming in our lake if the weather allows. Stephanie’s family lives in other states, and we make time to visit them as often as possible, especially around the holidays, or they come to visit us, especially in the summer.

In addition, we have developed deep relationships with our close friends, and we all consider ourselves family. We travel together and go on many adventures, and all their children call us Auntie. One of our greatest traditions with all we share meals with, and when we are home together, just the two of us, is to take the time to give thanks for all the abundance and blessings in our lives. Every winter, we travel with a bunch of our friends and their children to someplace warm and sunny, always involving a sandy beach and lots of beauty.

What Led Us To Adoption

It has been our utmost dream to raise a child together, and we often envision sharing our adventures with them. We both adore being around all the children in our lives, and yet it isn’t the same as being able to grow our family and experience the immense blessing of motherhood. We came to adoption after years of attempting pregnancy with no success. Infertility issues have been trying and emotional, but we have come to a great peace knowing the adoption of a baby is an opportunity for us. The love we feel for our adopted animals, which is a gigantic amount, is only a trickle of the love we will feel for our child.
