dear expectant mother

Thank you so much for taking the time to read our profile and this letter. Thank you also for thinking about adoption and seeing us as potential adoptive parents for your baby. Considering adoption is probably the most selfless act you can do for your child, and we are full of gratitude for you. If you choose us, you will be forever in our hearts and in our prayers, and you will make our dreams of being parents come true.

We promise to love your child unconditionally and for them to know they are always loved, no matter what. We promise your child will be well traveled both in the United States and throughout the world. Traveling is one of our passions, and we can’t wait to share that with your child. We promise to give your child unique and special experiences with diverse people and places. We promise to give your child our full attention and guidance and to support them in whatever they decide to be and do in this world.

We hold you in our prayers and our hearts as you read this and hope you feel comfort in knowing that whatever you decide will be the best for your baby.

We are confident the path to becoming parents is through adoption, and we know we will be able to provide love, care, and comic relief to a child.

About Us

We never imagined we would find each other in 2010, just one month before Chris moved across the country for nearly two years. We grew closer together in our long-distance relationship and even got engaged on one of our trips visiting each other. We have now been happily married for more than seven years and have continued to grow closer as the years pass. Sibyl is a professor at a local university, and Chris is part of the leadership team at a regional food bank. Friends and family are important to us and so is our church community, which is welcoming of everyone. On a typical weekend, you might find Sibyl reading a good book or practicing singing songs for her band, and Chris doing yardwork or working on his photography side business. We care about helping others, protecting our planet, advocating for social justice, and laughing together—lots and lots of laughing!

Our Home & Pets

We live in a quiet Pennsylvania suburb that is only 15 minutes away from a large city with plenty to do. Exploring the outdoors, attending cultural activities, cheering for professional sports teams, and eating amazing food are some of our favorites. Our neighborhood has a ton of trees and houses that are all unique. Our own charming house is made of stone and was built in the 1930s. Our yard has lots of plants, and neighbors are always outdoors walking and playing with their children, or visiting the large park right down the street. Our cat, Oliver, likes belly rubs and playing with his favorite toy - a small stuffed snowman. We can’t wait for a child’s laughter to fill our home.

Our Extended Family

Our family is as diverse as we are, both in culture and geography. We are blessed to have family spread throughout the country, from Tennessee to Ohio to Arizona. If you choose us, your baby will have a strong family network that is very excited to meet them. This will be Sibyl’s mother’s first grandchild and her 90-year-old grandmother’s first great-grandchild.

Chris has two younger brothers who are twins. One lives in a small midwestern town and loves animals. The other is married with two children, so Chris’s mom has gotten some practice at being a grandmother and can’t wait for the chance to do the same for your baby. Sibyl has one older brother who has already promised he is going to be the best uncle in the world.

We love celebrating birthdays and anniversaries, and some of our most cherished memories are when we are with our families for Thanksgiving or Christmas, feasting on Sibyl’s baked goods or on one of our mothers’ home-cooked meals. Halloween is an especially fun time in our neighborhood, and we enjoy getting creative with costumes each year. Your baby will receive not only love and affection from us but also from our family, who can’t wait to meet the little one.

What Led Us To Adoption

It’s always been our desire to have children; we just didn’t quite know how it would happen. We are confident the path to becoming parents is through adoption, and we know we will be able to provide love, care, and comic relief to a child. After speaking with friends and family, it’s amazing how many have their own adoption stories to share with us. We have an amazing network of friends who have adopted or who have been adopted, and this truly feels like the path we were meant to take to become parents.
