We are Jay and Miranda! We are excited for the opportunity to share our lives and ourselves with you. We cannot begin to imagine how difficult taking this path might be for you, and we can only hope that our letter will provide some encouragement and hope in your future decisions.
We have a handsome seven-year-old son Ryan whom we also adopted from birth. Ryan knows and understands why his birthmother chose the path of adoption. Our belief is that it is very important for your child to learn at a young age that he or she was adopted, and to understand the basics of adoption. We also believe that he/she should always know and feel your love, and we will do everything we can to make sure of that. We are willing to share any information about you or your family with him/her that you would be in agreement with.
We will teach our children to be responsible, respectful, and caring individuals, by instilling strong family values. We will encourage and support them through all of their learning experiences whether they are making great decisions or mistakes.
We usually spend our summers camping and having fun in the outdoors of
Winter brings us a whole new experience of outdoor time! We bundle up to enjoy the snow by sledding or building snowmen. We love to catch fresh perch for supper by ice fishing. Oh and of course lots of snow ball fights! On cold evenings in we play board or card games or work on one of our many home improvement projects. The holidays are special for us. At Christmas time our family all gathers at our home for lots of food, fun and laughs.
If you choose us we will cherish your child forever and will always be thankful for your choice. We are committed to our children and will offer them a life of unconditional love and constant nurturing.
“Children and mothers never truly part, bound together by the beating of one another’s heart.” ~ Charlotte Gray
