dear expectant mother

We are incredibly grateful for you. We believe there is no greater selfless act than wanting to make sure your child has the best life has to offer. We are feeling a range of emotions, so we cannot begin to understand the roller coaster of emotions you must be feeling. The fact that you are taking the time to search through prospective families to raise your baby shows the immense love you have for your child, and that is something that will never change. If you choose us, we will always make sure whatever your wishes are for your child to know about this process as they grow come to fruition.

We would love the opportunity to share all the love we have to give with your baby. We want you to know your baby will always be treated with respect for who they are, encouraged to try new things, valued as an individual, and loved unconditionally. We frequently talk about our future child, all the special family nights, mommy and me classes, sports, making snow angels, making cookies and s'mores, adventures and family trips, and knowledge we cannot wait to share with them about the world as we grow together as a family.

We greatly appreciate you getting this far in our profile and considering us to raise your child. Wrigs cannot wait to have a human sibling, and we do not know a greater honor than to be chosen to be parents.

With love,
Stephanie and Kimberly

Wrigs cannot wait to have a human sibling, and we do not know a greater honor than to be chosen to be parents.

About Us

Kimberly grew up in Massachusetts, and Stephanie is a life-long local of her Illinois town. We met online! We clicked right away and found we had many similar goals in life. The biggest one is growing our family! We love traveling, sporting events, concerts, and spending the day together riding bikes, walking our puppy, or having picnics in the park. We enjoy spending time together and laughing. Stephanie is a realtor and is thrilled to help people of all walks of life find a home they can call their own. Kimberly has always been in a helping field, from teaching toddlers to training adults in corporations. We have always wanted to share our love with children, and currently we do that with our nieces and nephews, whom we adore. We hope to continue to share that love with your child and to have the family we have always dreamed of.

Our Home & Pets

The love of our lives is our adopted puppy, Wrigs. He just turned one, and we had the best little backyard birthday party! All of his doggy friends from the neighborhood, as well as our extended family and friends, came to celebrate. Wrigs even had a special cake from the local pet bakery. We say he is the best dressed. He loves his shirts and brings them to us from the laundry room when he wants to wear a different one. We live in a wonderful neighborhood full of many children and dogs plus multiple parks within walking distance! We live in an award-winning school district and have a few friends who teach at those schools. Stephanie went to one of those same schools!

Our Extended Family

Stephanie is blessed to have both sets of grandparents as well as her mom, brother, and multiple aunts, uncles, cousins, and nieces within a 15-minute drive from our home. Her dad passed away three years ago, and we make sure to talk about his influence in our lives. Kimberly’s family is on the East Coast, where she grew up, and we enjoy visiting them. She has her mom, stepfather, dad, stepmother, four sisters, two nephews, and two nieces. She also has multiple aunts, uncles, and cousins. We frequently FaceTime and talk with them. Our extended family of friends are also excited to be aunties and uncles.

With Stephanie’s family, some things we like to do are activities with our nieces, like the park, dance parties in the family room, and visiting kid-friendly locations. We also regularly have family dinners at her mom’s or grandparents’ home.

When we are with Kimberly’s family, we also like to spend time with the little ones. Our last adventure was at a trampoline park, as well as those timeless dance parties. We enjoy going places with Kimberly’s dad and with her sister, brother-in-law, and niece on their boat.

What Led Us To Adoption

We knew we wanted to have children to raise and love and to complete our family. After looking at different options, we were inspired by multiple friends who have been through the adoption process. Seeing and hearing about their journeys to deeper happiness because of moms like you really warmed our hearts. They now have the opportunity to raise and love those precious children, and we feel this is the right path for us.
