dear expectant mother

Dear Expectant Mother,

Thank you for taking the time to look over our profile. We hope this gives you a sense of who we are and our heart for adoption. We know this is a difficult decision for you, and we’re proud of you for considering it. We don’t know your life circumstances or what brought you to this point, but we know you are brave and strong for considering adoption. We know you want what is best for your child, and that’s what we want as well. It is our hope that your child will know they are loved by you and their adoptive family.

We know this is an emotional and scary time for you, but we want you to know that if you choose us, we will love your child unconditionally. It is our desire that your child will feel wanted, chosen, and loved. We want to provide a home of joy, laughter, encouragement, and support through the tough times. We promise to choose love every day and to provide a stable and supportive home for your baby. We will always be grateful to you for the decision you are making.

We pray for you and your baby every day. It is our prayer that you will find the best home for your baby, even if that is not our home. You are brave. You are strong. You are loved.

About Us

We have been married for 10 years. Holly is a mental health therapist who specializes in working with children and adolescents as well as their parents. Mike is an IT professional at a small community bank. Holly loves to do anything that involves being around people and being outside. Holly enjoys photography, reading, cooking, and listening to music. Mike enjoys being outside and spending quality time with friends and family. He loves a good book, listening to music, and DIY projects, and he has recently started smoking meat, which we both enjoy consuming. We are best friends. We spend a lot of time together, laughing and having fun together. Some of our favorite activities include walking our dog, hammocking, kayaking at sunrise, hiking, exploring new places, and trying new foods. We like to support local businesses, and we are both involved in our church’s youth program.

Our Home & Pets

We live in the Midwest and enjoy the changing seasons. The small city we live in has a lot of diversity and has a vibrant downtown we enjoy. We live in a quiet neighborhood that always has kids playing outside and people walking their dogs. Our community pulls together in times of need to help each other out. The school district we live in has lots of opportunities and has a good reputation. We have a miniature schnauzer named Henry. He has a lot of personality, and he loves everyone he meets. We live in a four-bedroom, split-level house with a big, fenced-in backyard.

Our Extended Family

Mike’s family is a short drive away. Mike is the middle child, having an older brother and a younger sister. His sister was recently married. His brother is married and has two kids. Mike’s parents own a lake home which we all enjoy spending time at.
Holly’s family is more spread out, but we are still close and talk often. Holly has an older sister. We enjoy taking trips to see them. Holly’s parents are great hosts and love it when we come to visit. Her family is all about shared experiences and quality time. When we get together, we like to cook together and explore local attractions.

We enjoy getting together with both sides of the family for the holidays. Both sides of the family enjoy good food and conversation. Time is often filled with laughter and sharing stories. Our families are very supportive and encouraging.

Due to our families not living in our city, we have friends who are like family. We spend many evenings and weekends with our friends and their kids. We like to do various activities with them, including exploring our city and the state parks in our area.

What Led Us To Adoption

We have spent many years talking and praying about how to grow our family, and we feel called to this path. We’ve always had a passion and love for adoption. Together we have decided adoption is the best way to grow our family. Adoption is our first choice. We have a deep desire for the child or children who will enter our home to feel chosen.
