We are thrilled and thankful that you are considering us as adoptive parents for your precious baby. We are hoping to share our home and our love with a child. We promise to encourage higher education and support your child’s interests. We will do our best to create a family environment full of love and fun times. Our families and friends cannot wait for us to adopt and will be wonderful role models for your child.
We are Lindsay and Shawn, a young & happily married couple of over eight years who cannot wait to complete our family with a child. After trying to conceive ourselves and with fertility treatments for four years, we realized adoption was our destiny. Our experience with infertility not only opened our eyes to the beauty of adoption, but also strengthened our marriage and better prepared us to be parents.
We cannot begin to understand how difficult your decision is, but hopefully we can help by providing enough information about our family that you can feel comfortable knowing that we will love, cherish, protect, & guide your child in the way that you hope and that he/she deserves.
We met while in college and were in the same statistics class. We sat on opposite sides of the room and would have never talked if we didn’t get paired up to do a project together. A few days later we went on our first date and instantly clicked.
Two years later Shawn took Lindsay horseback riding at Illinois State Park. About 50 feet into the ride the guide’s horse got spooked and all the horses took off running back to the stables. Shawn’s saddle wasn’t secured and he fell off, luckily not majorly hurt, just cut and bruised. Even though he was now injured he was still determined and proposed to Lindsay on the spot! In September 2008, we were married and had a wonderful wedding with our family and friends.
We had a great weekend spending time with Shawn’s family who came up from Missouri. We especially enjoyed time with our 2 year old niece. It made us realize how much we cannot wait to become parents! Thanks for taking the time to look at our profile. Best, Shawn and Lindsay
