Most children come into families through the love of just two people. Ours will arrive through the love of many more!
Hello! So happy you're here!
Thank you for taking the time to learn about us; we know that the decisions you're making in the coming months take a great deal of courage along with research and trust. We're honored that you would consider placing your baby with us.
The first time we discussed the idea of our future family, we were juniors in college and just 20 years old. We are both oldest children in families with four children. Having many brothers and sisters growing up and being close with all of them (though of course there were the usual sibling squabbles!) made it easy for us to agree that we would be thrilled to have a family of four children. We got married at 23 and began planning for a family right away. Adoption was always on our radar, and it turned out building our family biologically wasn't in the cards for us. We're excited about building our family through the miracle of adoption. Most children come into families through the love of just two people--but ours will arrive through the love of many more! Us, our adoption team and most of all, the selfless and unconditional love of birth parents. What a beautiful thing!
This child will be our first. Our two brothers and four sisters can’t wait to welcome a beautiful little niece or nephew into our family. This baby will also be the very first grandchild for both our parents, which means four spry grandparents in their fifties ready to shower love and attention on this baby. And let’s not forget the seven loving great-grandparents who are anxious to knit adorable outfits and bounce him or her on their knees at Thanksgiving dinner. It’s not just all old people though--we also spend lots of time with our two sweet goddaughters, ages two and five, who will probably be our baby’s first friends!
Julie is an English teacher and looks forward to spending hours reading to our child. Julie was a 30-hour-per-week nanny for many years during school, mostly working with families of four. She loved taking the children to Library Baby Story Hour. Craft projects and cookie baking are other activities Julie tried out as a nanny and can’t wait to share with our own
children. Brian looks forward to bringing our baby to the yearly cousins’ beach trip, where all of our siblings plus our three cousins and their dog pile into one house for a week of sun and fun. As an engineer, Brian builds truly exceptional sand castles and is eager to pass these skills along to our kids.
We are fortunate to be able to provide a child with a safe and stable home environment in a peaceful suburb. Education is important to us, and we live in one of the top school districts in our state. We intend to raise our family with Catholic, Christian values, since this is how we were both raised.
Our home is located within walking distance of two parks, the elementary school and the middle school, and of course the library.
We know this is an incredibly hard decision for you. Please know it is our sincerest wish to provide unconditional love and support for your baby. We hope you will consider allowing us to be a part of your baby’s life. If you would like to know more, please call our friend and adoption attorney Allan Hazlett at (785) 235-5497, or e-mail us directly at email@example.com
