From us, to you:
I would like to start off by saying that we cannot begin to imagine how you may feel or what you are going through during this life changing decision. Our hearts truly break, knowing what one of the best days of our lives, may be the hardest of yours.
We would like to thank you for considering adoption and hope that the following will give you an idea of who we are as a couple and parents.
From the day we met, it has been a relationship filled with friendship, love, and adventure. We would like to think of ourselves as a caring, educated, responsible, and funny couple with huge hearts. I have two children from a previous marriage, my daughter Ashley is 19 and a freshman in college. She is studying to be a Psychologist with an emphasis of working with children of all ages. My son Trenten is 15 and a sophomore in high school and enjoys gaming and basketball. My husband and I married in 2015 and we can truly say we have found our happily ever after. He became a step dad with two teenagers, God bless his soul. He has done an amazing job. Two years ago, we bought our dream home, which has become a stable and secure environment. Monte and I love to travel, taking the kids to experience new and exciting things in efforts to expand their imaginations and peek their curiosity with all the wonderful things this world has to offer.
Adoption has always been something we have been interested in, so two years ago when we started this journey, we knew which direction it would lead. We started with foster care in the hopes of adopting. After helping numerous children and falling in love over-and-over, only to have them return home, we are no closer to adopting a child to call our own. We have enjoyed fostering and it has shown us, and our children, how truly blessed we are. If only for a brief period, it's been important to show each and every child the power of love, acceptance and the opportunity to feel safe and secure. That has led us to the next step in our story.
Our motivation is strong, compassionate and genuine. We come from a background of faith with a support system which encourages us each day to follow our dreams. We found each other and are better for it, we are now searching for our little blessing.
We know God has called upon us to help out other people along our journey through life, we are ready to act through the blessing of adoption. We recognize the gift and sacrifice that comes with someone entrusting their child into the care or our family and we pray that we will be a blessing to you as well.
You and your family are in our prayers as you make this difficult decision. We look forward to meeting you an your little one and also being a resource along the way.
Monte and Bambi
