Outdoor enthusiasts and adventure seeking couple looking to grow our family through adoption.
We are Shannon and Leslie. Outdoor enthusiasts and an adventure seeking couple looking to grow our family through adoption. We sincerely appreciate the opportunity to give you a snapshot into our lives and what we can offer a child.
What fun would the holidays be without the traditional Easter egg scavenger hunt, Christmas without the silly reindeer games and thousands of outtakes to capture, our dog, Brodie's best side for the family photo, and Thanksgiving without the daily note of thanks on the Thankful tree? And those are just the adult games. While Leslie and Shannon are fiercely competitive, adding a child to share these traditions with would mean everything to them.
We do not know the situation that has led you to adoption, but we shall be eternally grateful for your compassion and bravery in making this decision. The birth of a child is not something that we could do on our own and that has made our paths cross. We acknowledge that this decision came from a place of love, compassion, understanding and hope that we may be the parents that you would want us to be.
We will strive daily to give this child the happiest and healthiest life possible. We intend to bring this child up in a loving, respecting, confidence building, and happy environment. We are seeking an open adoption so that this child will grow to know the mother/parents that loved him/her so much that they were brave enough to give them up in hopes of something better. Please know that this child will change our lives forever.
Finding a life partner is not just about finding someone with common interests and goals, but rather walking with someone that will capture your most embarrassing moments on their phone, that will immediately be there to support you on a bad day, and a relationship that gains speed and strength with singular successes that then in turn strengthen your overall relationship. Shannon and Leslie have learned from past mistakes and have been laughing together and challenging one another for 4 1/2 years and are pressing forward for many more.
Leslie and Shannon are both registered nurses. We both enjoy the high intensity of our jobs and feel good about helping another person at the end of the day. When we are not at work we definitely like to play. Did you say outdoors? Then we are in. We enjoy activities such as hiking, bicycling, going to music concerts, traveling, and enjoying time with friends and our pup. We both like to be active, yet can enjoy an evening in to relax. We hope to share our extreme love for the outdoors and our passion for traveling with our child.
