Excited to realize our dream of becoming a dad and stay-at-home mom!

Dear Expectant mother,

Thank you so much for taking the time to learn about us and for considering us as you make the difficult decision of who will parent your child. We hope this profile gives you a glimpse into the love we have for each other, our families, and our future child. We are over the moon to become parents and welcome a child into our home and our family.

We talked about adoption before we were married, and adoption has always been something we have wanted to do at some point in our lives. Now that we're ready to grow our family, we're so excited to be adopting in order to become parents and grow our family.

We want you to know that we love and respect you already. We cannot imagine what a difficult decision this is for you, and we hope that you will have the strength and courage you need as you journey through this process. We know that you want what is best for your baby, and we pray that you will find us to be all that you hope for your child.

More than anything, we want you to know that we will love your child unconditionally and will devote our lives to providing him or her with all the love, security, and joy we can offer. We want your child to always know where they came from. You will always be an integral part of his or her life, and we plan to raise our child with an understanding and appreciation for you and the sacrifice you are making for him or her. Your child will be loved beyond words by us, our families, and our friends, and they will always know the great love you have for him or her as well. Thank you again for considering us, and we appreciate you.

Who We Are

We were both born and raised in central Pennsylvania, Harrisburg area. We met eleven years ago, in separate high schools at the time. We became high school sweethearts, and we knew almost immediately that we would end up together. After about two years of dating, Rob proposed, and we were married in June, 2008. We both come from large families, close with our cousins and siblings, and we always knew that we wanted to add our own kids to the mix. Family is extremely important to us, and we are so excited to add a child to ours.

We are very active and live to be outdoors. We enjoy day trips and exploring, and we can't wait to take our future child along on our adventures. We love nature and sightseeing, and we spend a lot of time hiking around the many parks and nature preserves around our neighborhood and throughout the Phoenix valley. We love kayaking, paddle boarding, and exploring all the beautiful sights that Arizona has
to offer.

Adoption Diary

Fun in PA

Just got back from a nice trip to Pennsylvania to be a part of our cousin’s wedding. It’s a lot of running around to see everyone when we visit our old stomping grounds, but it was nice to get to see everyone and play with our nieces!

One Day at a Time

Let’s be honest: We had no idea what to expect when we decided that we wanted to adopt a baby.  We didn’t know the process, the requirements, the paperwork, or anything else for that matter.  We just knew that we were ready to grow our family, this was how we want to do it, and we had tons and tons of love to give.  So, we started doing everything we could to make it happen – We researched the process… We went to workshops… We found professionals to help us with the paperwork… We read books… We completed our home study… Finally certified to adopt!  A few finishing touches like decorating the nursery and setting up the baby registry, and we were truly, unequivocally, ready to be parents.
Little did we know, being ready-and-waiting, without the “to-do list” of things to make us feel more productive, would be the most challenging part of the process so far.  Waiting, wanting, and longing for this baby to join our family has completely consumed our thoughts and our lives, and yet, we don’t know when or how it’s going to happen.  As much as we want it, and we wish we could just make it happen, we’ve acknowledged that it’s out of our hands.  And yet, we remain hopeful, because we know our baby is out there, and we will meet when the time is right.  For now, though, we’re just taking it one day at a time.

Thank You for Visiting Our Adoption Profile

We want to thank you for considering us as adoptive parents for your child.

We truly appreciate your kindness and strength and look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Rachel & Rob
