Loving couple searching for our future
We are excited to start raising a child together. We can't wait to take our child for hikes in state parks, have picnics, catch lightning bugs, and go to museums together. We are excited to read stories at bedtime, make up stories on long car rides, throw big birthday parties, watch Pixar movies, and clean up finger paints. We are excited for the good things, but we are ready for the tough things too. Ready to kiss boo-boos, ready to wipe away tears, ready to be firm when necessary. Good or bad, we are ready to take it on.
We believe that the family is the foundation of good values. We each grew up in families that focused on values by living them. Eating dinner together and spending time together was how we learned about the importance of family. Reading and getting our homework done was how we learned about the importance of education. We have learned from our families and from our own experiences the importance of inclusion and helping others who have less than ourselves. We are committed to teaching our child that they are loved, no matter what, and that other people are equally deserving of love, no matter who they are. We will also strive to help our child to develop a positive idea about their own adoption story, a part of their life that makes them special.
