dear expectant mother

The thought that you are here, learning about us, brings us tears of joy and a profound sense of gratitude. What you are considering is such a selfless act and an incredible testament to who you are as a person. We know how strong a woman you are and want you to know how much we respect and admire you.

By considering us, you are giving us so much hope of becoming parents, something we have both envisioned for years. We want you to know, if you choose us, you will always be a part of our family in whatever capacity you choose. We will make sure that if we are chosen to love, cherish, and raise your child they will know about your strength and courage and how you blessed us with the most precious gift of all. You will always be our hero.

We are already dreaming about the many camping adventures, board game nights, and endless snuggles as a family. We want you to know we take the role of mom very seriously and will commit ourselves wholeheartedly to our future son or daughter. We promise to instill kindness, compassion, respect, and goofiness with a sprinkle of nerdiness. We will do everything in our power to make sure they feel as loved as humanly possible, as safe as anyone can feel, and as humbled as we are by the choice you have made—always.
Again, thank you so much for taking the time to read this and considering us to take on the amazing role of becoming parents to your child.

Love,
Brittany and MacKenzie

About Us

We met in 2015 through a mutual friend over our love of all things Harry Potter! We instantly clicked and spent the next three years having adventures and deepening our connection. It was obvious we were both ready for marriage when we proposed on the same day, at the same location, unbeknownst to the other. In our families, we are considered the “fun aunts,” always ready to play. You can often find us outdoors or hanging out with our fur-babies. We enjoy traveling, exploring new cultures, and food but also quiet times together at home. We both consider ourselves (confirmed by close family and friends) to be nerdy and embrace that personality trait. Brittany works at her collegiate alma mater in human resources. MacKenzie is a pediatric physical therapist who works with children with varying abilities, pushing them to recover and reach their potential.

Our Home & Pets

We own a ranch-style home in a quiet neighborhood with lots of young families. There are countless gorgeous parks and highly rated schools nearby. Our nursery is patiently waiting for a little baby to occupy it. We have two dogs and two cats who can’t wait for a human sibling! The two dogs, Molly and Albus, are Great Pyrenees and are extremely loyal, loving, gentle giants. Molly is a rear leg amputee and is a good example of perseverance and maintaining spirit in the face of adversity. Our cats, Ariana and Aberforth, enjoy people time and a good rub. One thing all the fur babies have in common is their excitement when small humans come to visit.

Our Extended Family

We both have a close-knit relationship with our families near and far. Brittany’s family is within close driving distance, and you will often find us spending time with her parents, brothers, sister in-law, and nephews on weekends and holidays. They live in a rural area of Kentucky with lots of room to roam and explore.

Many nights are spent on FaceTime with MacKenzie’s family who live in Florida. Road trips and airplane rides are common for us to maintain our close relationship with MacKenzie’s parents, brother, sister-in-law, niece, nephew, and extended family. We are lucky to have such a supportive and involved family in our lives, and we look forward to including our child in many family traditions and sharing them with a large, loving extended family. We are commonly found at the kids table and crawling on the ground with our niece, nephews, and many cousins and look forward to adding another kid to the crew!

What Led Us To Adoption

Adoption has been part of our conversations since the beginning of our relationship, and we are confident we are ready to pursue adoption to become moms. We are financially stable, have good jobs, have an amazing community of friends and family, and our relationship is stronger than ever. We have family experience with adoption as MacKenzie’s cousins adopted a sibling group of three. The joy and unconditional love we have seen and shared in has further deepened our pursuit of adoption as the path for expanding our family.
