dear expectant mother

Dear Expectant Mother,

We want to first say thank you. Thank you for even reading about us and considering us to raise your precious baby. We can’t imagine the journey you are on or the emotions you are having, but we do know we don’t want you to walk alone. You are already on our mind and in our hearts.

You should know we are very passionate about loving people. It would be an honor and blessing to add to our already loving family with your help. Our home is full of endless laughter, finding a game in everything, and dancing in the kitchen. We dream often of what joy a child would add to our lives and what we could add to theirs. We talk about what we would teach them: playing sports, the science around them, and cooking a variety of foods. Most importantly, we dream of teaching them the importance of being kind and loving to everyone.

We are often overwhelmed by gratitude for the people in our lives. We both strive to live by the saying, “If you have more than you need, build a bigger table.” We are beyond excited to add a child to our table. We are humbled by the thought of you even considering us to educate, raise, and love your child.

With love and gratitude,
Alex & Madison

Being moms is something we have looked forward to for a long time, and we have always known adoption would be a part of that journey.

About Us

We are two passionate and caring people who have dedicated our lives to helping others. Alex’s love of taking care of her family and parents led her to a career of taking care of people as a nurse at a local hospital, while Madison’s love of kids and her family led her to a psychology position that serves special needs children in our school district. We met at church three years ago and got married last year. Even though we grew up in different parts of Arkansas, we both developed a love for family, for the outdoors, and for sports. Both of us love to play basketball, soccer, tennis, and softball. On the weekends, we go hiking, attend church, watch sports, and enjoy taking our dog on walks with our extended family. We would love to share our family with a child.

Our Home & Pets

We live tucked in the woods on the edge of a budding metropolis. Our home sits at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac. When you walk in, you’ll be greeted by our dog Miso, a sign that reads “All are welcome,” and the smell of Madison’s current favorite candle. Miso is a lover and cuddler who believes his mission is to be friends with everyone he meets. He and our friends’ children love to play in our fenced backyard and playground. We love our community and all of the culture it brings. We frequent the hiking trails as well as local museums and festivals. We enjoy trying new restaurants and shops, and we can’t wait to share all of our adventures with a child.

Our Extended Family

Alex grew up as an only child, but you wouldn’t know it because of how close she is to her more than thirty cousins. They grew up doing everything together, like playing sports, attending family reunions, being in each other’s weddings, and taking vacations together.

Madison grew up with one sister, but during high school, her parents took in a pair of sisters close to her age who needed a family. Madison’s second home was at church, and she spent a week every summer at a children’s home in Mexico. Her family also enjoyed beach vacations and traveling to see extended family.

Throughout the years, parts of our family have spread across the nation, but that doesn’t stop us all from being close. Every year Alex’s family has a reunion vacation during the summer with swimming and board game tournaments. At least once a year, we go on a cross country roadtrip to see Madison’s family, where they host a competitive cornhole tournament. Everyone is excited for another addition to join their team.

What Led Us To Adoption

Being moms is something we have looked forward to for a long time, and we have always known adoption would be a part of that journey. Both of us have loved ones who have been adopted, and our lives have been richer for it. We can’t wait to grow our family and create new traditions and memories. We want to empower our child and embrace all they come to love. We value the responsibility and gift we will be given to care for and raise a child in a loving and supportive home that encourages them to be all they were created to be.
