Candice & Erin

Family Type: Lesbian Couple
State we live in: Ohio

dear expectant mother

We want to thank you for the brave and hard decision you are making. We would also like to thank you for taking the time to consider us as potential parents for your child. This is something we have wanted for so long, and without you and your selflessness, this would not be possible. While we know this decision can’t be easy, you could bless us with the most incredible gift of parenthood.

We want you to know there will not be a day when your child does not feel love, support, acceptance, and safety. We will provide them with every opportunity possible to help them grow, succeed, and become the person they want to be. We are very blessed with an incredible core family that will always be there to show them the same love and support as we will.

We will encourage growth through school, trying different sports, and participating in activities to help them find what they are passionate about. We will teach your child the importance of loving others for who they are and the power of giving back in this world to help people. As we strive to make this all happen, we can promise your child will experience laughter, joke telling, and dancing in the kitchen on the daily.

Thank you again for your consideration of us in your adoption process. We will do whatever we can to support and respect you.

This is something we have wanted for so long, and without you and your selflessness, this would not be possible.

About Us

We met back in 2016 and were the definition of opposites attracting. Erin is very much into sports, both playing and watching, and enjoys woodworking. Candice loves to be a homemaker, hosting our friends and family, baking, and having the occasional pampering day. Right away we knew we had an amazing connection because we shared different passions, and these helped to round us out. Erin proposed in 2017, and after what seemed like forever, we got married with a beautiful Christmas-inspired wedding in December of 2019. Erin works for a transportation company where she has been for ten years, while Candice manages a rental office. In our free time, we enjoy hanging out with our fur babies, having a bonfire in the backyard, and attending concerts and festivals. We also spend a lot of time with our family and friends, which allows us to spoil our five nieces as much as possible!

Our Home & Pets

We live in a beautiful four-bedroom home, which also happens to be the home Erin grew up in. It is a diverse neighborhood where some of our neighbors have known Erin since she was five years old! We have about two acres of land, which allows us to feel like we are living the country life while only being about 20 minutes from a large city. Our home is within walking distance from an elementary, middle school, and high school of one of the best school districts in the state of Ohio. We have one dog, Olive, who is a French bulldog and the princess of the house. We also have a cat, Jodi, who keeps to herself but does love to get attention on her terms.

Our Extended Family

We are both very close to our family, and because of that, family is everything to us. Candice grew up in Virginia, where her father and stepmother still reside. We get to see them a few times a year and always enjoy the time we spend with them. Her brother moved to Ohio shortly after she did, thus allowing them to continue their close bond.

Erin’s parents live just down the road, while her sister is only a few minutes away. Because Erin’s family is so close, we tend to spend a lot of time doing family dinners, celebrating holidays, and enjoying sporting events and vacations together.

We have a very close group of friends we consider family. We make an effort to see them at least once a week for dinner and have even recently started to take a few vacations with them. We have five nieces (two blood related) we try to see every week so we are as much involved in their lives as possible. Seeing the love and support we get from our friends and family has not only helped us as individuals and a couple but shows us the type of family we want to raise.

What Led Us To Adoption

Before we even got together, we both had a passion for adoption. One of Erin’s best friends was adopted, and she saw the life she was given and felt a desire to do the same for a child. Early on in our relationship, we both knew we wanted a family and even tried to conceive ourselves; however, after several failed attempts, we realized our journey was meant to take a more meaningful path.
