We are a loving, child-centered family with hearts wide open to grow through adoption.
Dear Expectant Mother and Family,
We can't imagine what you are going through right now but we are honored to be considered in your adoption journey and we honor you for your courage, willingness and love for your child. Thank you for taking the time to read about us. We are a big, warm, loving family--probably not the average family and we're guessing you aren't the average family either. We cannot wait for the privilege of welcoming a child through adoption and sharing all that we have--all our love, energy, play, fun, joy, and zaniness. We live in a large farmhouse with nearly four acres across from a farm with donkey and miniatures horses in a safe, friendly community. Our lives are already totally child-oriented and that's how we like it. Being with children is a real joy for us. We own 2 bounce houses! We have a large network of friends and kids in the community. We go to the local children's picture book museum, story times, science museums, and parks. Because there are four children already we have experience with the late nights, the sick bouts, the sibling fights, the big love, and the real work and devotion it takes to raise children. It is as hard as anything and the best work of our life.
We have a special family set up. It makes us unique and also has given us more understanding and perspective about what family actually is. It's bigger than we think; it can expand to include all kinds of shapes and forms, and it grows from love. Together we don't have children of our own (we did lose one half way through a pregnancy), but Sam has four biological children from her first marriage. This means that your child will get the best of both worlds. Much of the time, your child will be surrounded by siblings who are all so eager and excited to welcome a child through adoption. Some of the time your child will get to be almost like an only child, getting all of our energy and attention.
We want to share our hearts with you. We are creative, passionate and down to earth people. You can ask us anything. We would like nothing more than to be the answer to your prayers and we know that you will be the answer to ours.
Thank you for considering us! We wish you the very best.
Sammie and Tom
