Dear Birthmother.


We know that this is a hard time in your life.  We recognize this is a confusing and emotionally difficult time in your life as your emotions must seem to be swirling in all directions at once. Please know that we are praying for you and your unborn child. We thank God for giving you the strength and discernment to make the decision for life for your child. Thanks for taking the time to find more about us while you consider if we are the right family to raise your child.


We have a five year old son and also knew long ago that we wanted to have more kids. We would like the opportunity to expand our family through adoption. We are no strangers to the adoption world as our son’s best friend is adopted and Shawn’s mother was also adopted. we know that we will open our hearts to a child and offer a warm and loving home, filled with unconditional love, filled with Christian teaching, and plenty of growth for all of us. It should be known that we have an extended family that is very supportive along with multiple friends that provide a support group for us as well.


Even though we don’t know you yet, we want you to know you are in our thoughts and prayers.  We are grateful that our paths have crossed.   We thank God for the strength and love to open our arms to a gift of life to expand our family.
