Dear Expectant Mother,

We think of you often and how you are doing. If we are lucky enough to become parents, know that your baby will grow up loved and surrounded by a family that will treat this little soul as one of their own. Your child will grow up loved! We are grateful for you and hope you find the strength you need on your journey.

We know this can’t be an easy decision for you nor something you’ve taken lightly. Know that while we very much look forward to becoming parents, you are and will always be the mother who gave life to this baby.

About Us

When we first met, there was an instant connection, and we knew we wanted to spend the rest of our lives with each other. Chris was so nervous that Mike thought maybe he did not like him. Seven years later, we are still as happy as ever, and we strive every day to make each other as happy as possible. We are a perfect match and best friends who share our deepest thoughts with one another. As a fun-loving, happy couple, we love making each other laugh and keep each other on our toes by acting goofy and carefree. Michael is looking forward to supporting our family in his role as a manager of sales, and Christopher is a hopeful stay-at-home dad and master blanket fort builder. We love to travel and go on a Disney vacation at least once a year as well as a vacation with the whole family. We cannot wait to show our future child the world!

Our Home & Pets

We live in the suburbs of a large city with our lovable Akita. We recently bought a five-bedroom, two-story house with a huge backyard. When we first saw the house, we could picture ourselves there with our growing family. Not only is it in the same neighborhood as Michael’s immediate family but it is in one of the best school districts in the state. Chris, being a kid at heart, can’t wait to make play forts in the house and to watch our kids on a hot summer day playing with the slip and slide. We look forward to supporting our children in their dreams and interests.

Our Extended Family

Michael has a large family, and we spend as much time as we can with our five nephews and six nieces. One of our traditions is going to Disney World as a family every year or two. We would love our kids to experience the fun we share on these magical vacations. Michael’s family also loves large family gatherings, like their Christmas Eve party. Chris’s family celebrates the Fourth of July by going to the parade and having a BBQ. Growing up, they were on the lake every weekend.

We would love to share with our kids the thrill and excitement of opening presents on Christmas morning or picking out a Halloween costume and then going trick-or-treating till their bucket is so full they can’t carry it. When we told our families we were planning to adopt, they were so happy for us. Our parents can’t wait to have another grandchild.

What Led Us To Adoption

From the moment we met, we both knew we wanted children together. We always knew adoption was our choice. Chris’s dad is adopted and Chris was adopted by his dad, so for him, it will be that much more meaningful to adopt. We’ve always known we wanted to be parents and can’t wait to grow our family through adoption. There is nothing more important to us than being parents.
