Dear Expectant Mother,
You are at a pivotal point in your personal journey called life and we hope you have nothing but comfort, confidence and peace in the decisions you make for you and your baby. Having the courage to dig deep and envision the life you want for your baby is really brave. Selecting the type of life and parents you want him/her to have is an amazing responsibility and blessing.
What we promise you is your baby will always be loved, respected, protected and cuddled by our family. We have so much love and are blessed in so many ways, we can’t wait until we can take the arms of our family and wrap them around a baby. We are full of joy, hope and peace that our family will be complete with a baby very soon. We can provide the material things any baby would want, but it is more about the attention, time, loyalty and effort. Sleepless nights, tears dropping on your shoulders, but knowing you will always be caught if you fall. Our family is a unit.
From the moment we had our son Wyatt, we have had breakfast and dinner together almost every night and we started a routine of alternating putting him to bed. We relish the quality time of reading, cuddling and having that quiet time at the end of the day. We love our family time and our one on one time together. It will be the same for your baby also. No crying it out in our house, we cuddle, rock, read and sing to a calm loving slumber.
We love to read about adventures, but we also think it is important to experience adventures. We try to do things that bring huge smiles to our face, belly laughs and initiate those moments in life that just make you feel wonderful, loved and part of something special. We search out great food, activities and find tremendous joy spending time with our family and friends.
Our desire to expand our family through adoption seems natural. Michelle’s brother has adopted and added their fourth child to their family. Michelle also has many cousins who were also adopted. We promise you that we will provide the foundation, support and encouragement necessary to ensure your baby reaches his/her potential. Education, sports, music or something we may not have even thought of. We are open parents who look for strengths and opportunities to help children grow into the best they can be; without be overpowering and exhausting. Life is a blessing and we try to live every day to its fullest. We are organized, financially responsible with an adventure for life and love. We have the house that all our friends and family want to come to. We have an amazing home, three acre yard, pool, hot tub, walking paths, state park at the end of our road and an air hockey table for the best home tournaments a kid could want. We work hard to achieve our goals, including our careers, relationships and as a family.
We may have fun, but we also take education and responsibility very seriously. We have ensured we have sufficient savings and that we are financially responsible to provide for our family well past our own retirement. We want your child to grow up to be a productive member of society, with confidence to do and be whomever he or she wants to be. Timing can be everything in life and we hope and pray that you will consider us to be the parents of your baby boy or girl. Our family will not be complete until we have a little baby in our arms and in our hearts to share in all of the wonderful things our life has ahead. Thank you for taking your decision seriously and we wish you all of the best in your future.
Shayne & Michelle
