We appreciate you taking the time to learn about & consider us as you selflessly consider adoption for your child. We are beyond excited to welcome a child into our home & family.
Our hope is that through this book you will get a sense of the love we have for one another, our families & friends, & our future child. To tell you a little more about ourselves…
We have always desired to have children both through natural conception and adoption. We decided to begin our journey to parenthood through natural conception, but were met with challenges. After 3 years of unsuccessful fertility treatments, we decided to take steps towards becoming foster/adoptive parents in hopes of building our family. In December 2016 we welcomed a 12 month old boy into our home. He was with us for 10 months and then went to live with his grandma. Although we were unable to adopt him we are blessed that he is still actively involved in our lives. Our desire to be parents continues to motivate and encourage us forward.
Our fostering experience was both wonderful and heartbreaking, as it did not end in a permanent placement. This experience showed us that, emotionally, we could no longer emotionally pursue the foster care system, and we chose to actively pursue adoption at that time. We are both hopeful and excited to welcome a child into our home and hearts through adoption.
It is our hope that as you consider adoption, that you will be able to find peace in the decision that you make. We want you to know that we are open to having the type of relationship that makes you most comfortable, whether that is open, semi-open, or closed. We believe that is your decision to make. We also would like you to know that we cannot begin to imagine what a difficult decision this must be, and we want to wish you all the strength, courage, and hope as you go through this process. In this profile we hope to tell you a little about ourselves and give you a glimpse of the parents we aspire to be…
Best, Michelle & Brent
