dear expectant mother

Dear Expectant Mother,
Thank you so much for considering adoption and for considering blessing our little family with the most incredible gift. We know this is such a difficult decision but hope there is peace and comfort in finding people who will fiercely love and support your baby. We will never stop being grateful for your courage and strength.

We promise to love your baby unconditionally and to work hard to create and sustain a home that is warm, nurturing, safe, and joyful. We will raise them to value kindness, perseverance, and authenticity above all else. Your baby will grow up knowing that they are worthy of all the good things life has to offer. More than anything, they will be raised with the knowledge that they are loved beyond measure just the way they are, both by the two of us and by you. Our family won’t be perfect, but we will, however, do everything we can to be the very best parents we can.

We promise to love your baby unconditionally and to work hard to create and sustain a home that is warm, nurturing, safe, and joyful.

About Us

We are Emily and Hannah! Hannah is a nurse, and Emily is a doctor. (Yes, we met at work!) We recently moved from Missouri to South Carolina to live closer to our amazing extended family. A normal month for us includes nights around the firepit in our backyard, game nights with friends, weekend trips to hang out with our nieces and nephews, and lots of walks around our neighborhood with our sweet dog, Izzy. Hannah loves to cook and is often trying out new recipes. Emily is the master builder of our family, and we both enjoy DIYing around our house. In our free time, you’ll often find us on the move. There are tons of opportunities for outdoor activities where we live, and we love staying active by hiking, exploring, and playing racquetball.

Our Home & Pets

We live in a four-bedroom home in a quiet neighborhood with lots of young families. Our home has a large, fenced yard with lots of big, old trees and tons of space to play. We live in a medium-sized city with a beautiful downtown area with gorgeous walking trails and a big farmers market every weekend. We are also an easy drive to the mountains. Our house is in one of the best school districts in our area and has two big parks just a couple blocks away. We also share our home with our dog, Izzy. She is a gentle giant and absolutely loves babies and kids.

Our Extended Family

Hannah comes from a pretty small family and is an only child. Her parents live in Illinois and are super supportive and so excited to be grandparents. (They’ve already said they plan to be called Mimi and Papa.) We enjoy meeting up with them on vacations. Hannah has four cousins and is especially close with her younger cousin, who has always been more like a sister.

Emily comes from a much bigger family. She is one of three kids, and each of her brothers has two children of their own. Emily’s mom is the #1 Grandma and can’t wait to have another grandbaby in the mix. Family events are full of love and excitement as all of the aunts, uncles, and cousins (around 50 people all together) gather at Emily’s grandmother’s house for holidays. There are kids of all ages running around, and it’s a beautifully wild celebration. We also get together every winter, spring, summer, and fall for big combined birthday parties.

What Led Us To Adoption

From the beginning, we knew expanding our family to include children was something we both wanted. We spent a lot of time considering our different options for having a family of our own and ultimately realized adoption was the road for us. Each time we talked about the prospect of adoption, we each experienced that gut feeling of “this is the right choice.” After talking to other people who had been through the adoption process and reading countless stories, we were sure it was the right option. We are so grateful and excited to be starting on this journey.
