dear expectant mother

Thank you for taking the time to view our profile. We can only imagine the anxiety and stress you may be feeling right now. The selfless decisions you’ve made on your journey make you a hero in our eyes. We’d be dishonest if we said we don’t feel any anxiety—we do—though it pales in comparison to what you must be feeling.

We want you to know, if you place your child with us, we will honor that decision every day. Your child will know you are the only mother who has ever been in their life and that you made the most courageous and difficult decision from a place of love. We will honor your sacrifice by loving your child unconditionally through all the fun and more difficult times in life. We promise to instill a sense of self-worth and purpose so they can become the best version of themselves. We commit to making education a priority and to always provide a safe and nurturing home for your child to thrive. It is our vow to you that the care and upbringing of your child will be the most important thing we ever do in our lives.

We also want you to know we will be there for you during your pregnancy and afterward, should you want us to. We would love to answer any questions and are grateful you took the time to look through our profile.

We want you to know, if you place your child with us, we will honor that decision every day.

About Us

Hi there! We’re Daniel and Stephen. Thanks for looking through our profile to learn more about us. We met through work in 2013 and were married in 2018 among our family and friends. We each have one sibling and supportive parents in our lives. Daniel’s sister has three beautiful children we love to pieces. We are graduates of public universities and believe strongly in education, both vocational and college. We’re both employed locally; Stephen as an accountant and Daniel in commercial real estate. We love to travel and cook together. Stephen also enjoys woodworking and Daniel loves spending time in the garden. We have a lovely home with a saltwater pool and a fenced backyard. We hope to open our home to a beautiful child to shower with love, support, and exposure to all life has to offer.

Our Home & Pets

We live in a diverse neighborhood within walking distance of great public schools, museums, shopping, and several parks for children of all ages in South Carolina. Our neighbors are fantastic people with whom we enjoy backyard cookouts throughout the year. We have a wonderful dog Daniel adopted in college who brings us so much joy each day, whether lounging by the pool or taking a weekend trip. He’s been a loyal family member for many years.

Our Extended Family

We are both blessed with loving and supportive families. Stephen is the eldest of two children and has a brother who enjoys visiting us and spending time at the beach. Stephen’s parents are both retired after fulfilling careers.

Daniel’s parents live at the beach and spend time with their grandchildren and love golfing. Daniel is also the eldest and has a younger sister who is married with three children. He is the proud godfather to his nephew.

Family get-togethers are a wonderful time to see the kids and spend time with our loved ones. We get together throughout the year for holidays, birthdays, and special occasions. Between both of us, we have 24 cousins and 17 second cousins - a large extended family indeed! Daniel’s parents love being grandparents and Stephen’s folks can’t wait for a child to call them Grandma and Grandpa!

What Led Us To Adoption

Early in our relationship, we talked about the importance of family and how meaningful it would be to have a family of our own. We began our journey after spending six years doting on our niece and nephews and watching them grow, use their imaginations, and bring joy to our family. We thoroughly enjoy spending time with our friends’ children, and they have a blast in our pool on a hot summer day! When we think about being parents, our hearts feel full of excitement and hope, and we look forward to the day when it becomes a reality.
