dear expectant mother

We want to thank you for reading our profile and getting to know us a little better. We can only imagine the journey you have gone through to be where you are today.

Although we will never fully understand the difficult decision you are making, please know we are very excited to be considered to provide an opportunity-filled life for your child.

We have so much love and support to give as future parents. If you choose us, we promise to maintain a home that allows your child to be exposed to diversity and endless opportunities that include education, athletics, hobbies, music, and culture. We promise to foster a life of kindness, empathy, and openness to everyone. No matter what life throws our way, we will always provide a safe home full of support, unconditional love, and, of course, laughter.

We can’t wait to share our lives with your child. They already have so many family members who have been anxiously awaiting their arrival and are ready to shower them with love. We are committed to this experience, and we will always be grateful to and for you. Thank you for considering us.

No matter what life throws our way, we will always provide a safe home full of support, unconditional love, and, of course, laughter.

About Us

We are an outdoorsy couple who love adventuring through new cities and parks. Our favorite destination is the mountains, and we try to vacation there every year. We are a “5k on the holidays” kind of couple who enjoy spending time with our family. Sam is a police officer for a local town and enjoys playing piano in her free time, along with reading a good book. Catie is a nurse at the community hospital and enjoys gardening along with biking in her free time. We met online, even though we only lived 20 minutes away from each other, and have been together for five years, married for two. On days we’re not working, we love to go hiking at a nearby park with our dogs and then come home to have a fire on our outdoor patio.

Our Home & Pets

We live in a rural area 30 minutes east of a major city that we enjoy visiting for multiple attractions. We live about five minutes down the road from the local park with a lake, playground, and plenty of outdoor activities. We have four rescue dogs, including two special needs dachshunds who are sisters, a Boston terrier mix, and a pit/Lab mix. We also have four ducks who venture in the unfenced portion of our property and swim in our pond. We have a spacious four-bedroom house on a dead-end street where we enjoy outdoor activities as much as indoor ones, like playing pool or foosball in our game room.

Our Extended Family

We are both extremely close with our extended family. Catie’s parents are separated but still have an especially close relationship with each other. Her dad plays the guitar and her mom volunteers with environmental activities. She has one brother who has a long-term partner, both of whom enjoy running and yoga. Her brother is her best friend. Her extended family is very large and includes over ten cousins, many of whom have children. We spend lots of time with Catie’s family in the city going to sporting events, music festivals, musical theater and running local races. Her family loves their Slovak traditions around the holidays, many involving cooking food together!

Sam’s parents have been together for over 30 years. They both are retired and enjoy volunteer work, especially with the local fire department. She is very close with her one brother and sister-in-law, who enjoy motocross and hosting family dinners. Even though her extended family is smaller than Catie’s, it’s just as tight knit. We spend an equal amount of time with Sam’s family doing projects, going to concerts, and attending local festivals. Her family absolutely loves spending time together, and every holiday ends with board games and lots of laughter!

What Led Us To Adoption

We have shared a dream of expanding our family and becoming moms since we were first together. We have seen first-hand from one of our friends who was adopted as a baby and another friend who adopted children at all different ages how positive and full their lives have been. Although this is our first endeavor into adoption, it is a dream we’ve talked about since the beginning of our relationship. We have an extremely supportive and loving family, a comfy home with room to grow, and so much love to give.
