Dear Expectant Mother,

Thank you for taking time to consider us as adoptive parents for your child. We can't begin to imagine how difficult and challenging this time in your life must be. The path you have chosen truly takes a selfless individual who is full of love and courage. We would love and take care of your child and provide your child with a safe, loving home and family. We are open to having a relationship with you within your level of comfort. Such as sharing pictures, updates, or even visits if that is what you would desire as we want to respect and honor your wishes. Your child would grow up in a home knowing how much their Birth Mother loves them and how much respect and love we have in our hearts for her.

We are so excited to welcome your baby into our lives. Our home has a large fenced in yard to play in and there are parks nearby. We love spending time outdoors and take our black lab mix dog named Gauge for a walk every day. We would take your child with us on our walks, bike rides, and would also play in the yard. When the weather isn't as warm out, we would play games inside or even go sledding or build a snowman if there would be snow on the ground.  Our days would conclude with family dinner at our table and would later be followed by a bedtime story in your child's own bedroom.

A mutual friend introduced us in 2008 and we have been married since the fall of 2010. We were both shy at first, but once we got to know each other everything clicked. We found many things we have in common. Our faith, love for travel, and commitment to our families are just a few of the areas where we found similarities. We have a goal of traveling to all 50 states and have crossed many off of our list. Our favorite places so far have been Alaska and Hawaii. We hope to return to Alaska as there is so much more to see and do there. We look forward to being able to take your child with us on our tour of America so we can share these experiences with them.

Family is very important to us and we try to spend as much time with our families as we can. We go to sporting events, school activities, family birthday's, graduations, and holidays. We also travel with our families once in awhile. Mark's parents have traveled with us to the Grand Canyon and parts of Missouri. Stephanie's family goes on a yearly trip to Branson, Missouri. We look forward to having a little one to take with us and share these experiences with. 

Both of us have always wanted to have a family. Adoption has always been in our hearts as a possible way to start our family. After being married for four years and having not been blessed with a child naturally, we decided not to try infertility treatments and instead pursue adoption. Your child would enrich our lives so much and would be a true blessing. Your child already has many people who are excited to meet him or her. Mark comes from a large family and your child would have twenty-five first cousins and would be the first grandchild in Stephanie's family, so he or she would have the best of both worlds.  We have hearts full of love, a welcoming home, and wonderful families that are waiting to welcome a child with open arms.  We look forward to raising a child and teaching them values such as respect, kindness, and honesty while helping them enjoy all that life has to offer.
