dear expectant mother

We are so grateful for this incredible opportunity you are considering giving us. We cannot even begin to imagine how hard this must be for you and want you to know this is a truly selfless decision that shows just how brave and strong you are. Should you choose us, your baby will be loved immensely; there are not enough words to express how overjoyed we would be to receive this precious gift.

We are so excited to become mothers. Should you bless us with this incredible gift, our dreams can come true. We will raise your child in a home where they will always be loved and accepted for who they are and whoever they will become. We will support them, encourage them, nurture them, and provide a positive and safe environment for them to grow up in. We know they will grow up to be fearless, confident, and kind-hearted, just like you.

We can already imagine Dorothy kicking around a soccer ball with them in the backyard and Valerie reading them a bedtime story every night. We are excited to share our love for animals with them. We are looking forward to Sunday afternoons at the playground, walks around the lake together with the dogs, summer days spent picking strawberries, going to craft fairs and farmers markets, and so much more! We hope you find comfort in knowing your child will grow up surrounded by so many people who already love them.

We are so excited to become mothers. Should you bless us with this incredible gift, our dreams can come true.

About Us

We are very excited to introduce ourselves to you. Our names are Valerie and Dorothy. We have been together for six years and recently got married! We both work in the child services field. Dorothy works with adolescent boys at a group home, where she helps to provide residents with positive coping skills and helps them develop a behavior management plan. Valerie is a behavior therapist and helps children with autism develop communication, daily living skills, and social skills. In our spare time, we enjoy going to flea markets, baking sweets, going on hikes, trying different foods, hosting board game nights with friends and family, and going to museums. When we aren’t out finding new adventures to go on, we are at home cuddling up with our four rescue animals.

Our Home & Pets

One of the things we love about our house is the location. We live near multiple lakes and can see the amazing sunsets right from our backyard. Our neighborhood is very inviting and calm, and the school districts are rated very highly! We live in a cottage-style home with a fenced-in yard and a large deck. We have lived in our house for three years and have made it a home, especially with our four adopted pets. We have two dogs, Edgar and Beanie, and two cats, Shiloh and Ritz, who are all little snuggle bugs and will become your child’s best friend right from the start.

Our Extended Family

Dorothy is an only child, and her mother is very supportive of the process. Dorothy’s grandmother is excited to be able to become a great-grandmother! Valerie has an older sister and a brother and is an aunt to many! Our friends, whom we also consider our family, have been supportive of us since the beginning and are delighted to go through this journey with us.

We love hosting dinner and board game nights at our home for our friends and family. We can’t wait to have your baby join in with our annual ugly Christmas sweater celebrations and matching family Halloween costumes. We are so excited to have your baby join us for pumpkin picking every year and to go hunting for the perfect Christmas tree. In the summertime, we can all sit at the beach, make sand castles, and enjoy the view. Our friends and family can’t be any more thrilled to help us welcome your baby into our family and will spoil them endlessly with love and support.

What Led Us To Adoption

Early on in our relationship, we knew that when it was time for us to start a family, we would pursue adoption. In our careers, we have been fortunate enough to see firsthand the incredible impacts adoption has on children and families. We already have so much love in our hearts for our future child and are eager to provide your baby with a home that is loving, supportive, nurturing, and filled with adventures. In these last few years, we have created a wonderful life together and would like nothing more than to share it with your child.
