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

Dear Birthmom,

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 decided we wanted to adopt before we were married, nearly a decade ago. Adoption has always been something we have wanted to do and have been excited for. In fact, we have never even tried to build our family any other way. Adoption has been, and continues to be, our first choice for how we 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 at church, 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

Something to be thankful about

Smoke turkey. Mashed potatoes. Gravy. Brussels sprouts. Gravy. Stuffing.  Gravy…

Okay, I like gravy. But this Thanksgiving we’ve got one more thing to be thankful about. Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving, Rachel opened the mailbox to find a letter from the state of Arizona - A letter informing us that we are certified as fit by the courts of Arizona to adopt a child into our home. Wahoo!!!

But please don’t pity us for a second. We don’t have a sad story about how we’ve tried and tried unsuccessful to conceive over the past who-knows-how-many years. We decided over a decade ago, before we were even married, that when the time came, we wanted to complete our family via adoption.

We are thankful that you are here, viewing our page, and learning more about us. We’re thankful that you are genuinely concerned with the well-being of your baby. And, we are thankful that, regardless of your final decision, you’ve got your baby’s best interest at heart.

Happy Thanksgiving.
