Dear Birth Parent,

We are the Akers and we are most grateful and humbled that you have chosen to learn more about us and consider us as an adoptive family for your precious baby. We admire you for your courage and unconditional love you are giving your child by choosing adoption and carefully choosing an adoptive family.

Through adoption, we hope our desires as well as the needs and wishes you have for your child can be met. Your baby will be cherished and celebrated by not only the four of us, but also by our whole extended family. We would be honored to have an opportunity to be an adoptive family and to give a child our love with a life you hope and envision for them.

Who We Are

Jack and I met in high school, he was athletic and I was artsy. I invited him to a dance, and he said yes! We’ve been together since our very first date. Jack graduated and went on to college where he continued to play football. I followed him attending the same college and enrolled in art classes there. We both finished college and went straight to work. I found a career in teaching elementary students art and Jack found his place with a career as a hydraulic mechanic.
Soon after college we decided we wanted to get married and spend the rest of our lives together. Jack had 2 dogs and I had one, so we started our family with three fur babies. We loved traveling, cooking, gardening, exercising, and sitting on the porch together. Jack continued to play on some ball teams, and I continued to create art for various projects.

We’re so very thankful we were able to become parents to our son and daughter who have become the light of our lives. As parents we still enjoy many of the things we loved when we first got married and the kids add to our enjoyment because we get to experience life through their eyes now.

Even through the hardship of experiencing loss we trust in Gods plan for our family. Our first child passed away due to a heart syndrome and we’ve also experienced the heart ache that comes along with a miscarriage. We turned to some of our church family for counseling to help us learn to support each other’s needs and carry our grief as we continued to grow closer and our love for each other became even stronger.

We’ve talked and dreamed of adopting a child who could join us in all the love we have for each other. We live life to the fullest because we are so very aware of how short life can be. We would be honored to offer a child a family to love them, to support them, to cherish them, to keep them safe, and always have their best interest at heart.

Adoption Diary

We’re a Team!

    Our lives revolve around our family and experiencing life together.  We are certainly not perfect, but we practice giving each other grace when we fall short, and we value our family’s relationship together.  Having a family and being a parent has been our greatest joy and we feel it is also our greatest responsibility. We have grown together and have become a strong team over the last few years.  With this growth we have practiced putting each other’s best interest at heart while overcoming many hardships along with celebrating life’s blessings.  We love taking care of each other just as much as we love having fun together and we want nothing more than another child to join us.
    We carry this desire for another child to complete our family in our hearts daily and the feeling has become stronger and stronger as the years have gone by. This longing for another child has led us to adoption partly because of our history with difficult pregnancies and health concerns but mostly because adoption is our hearts desire.  Through adoption we hope our desires, as well as the needs and wishes another parent has for their child can be met.  We would be honored to have an opportunity to be an adoptive family and to give a child our love. 
    It would be extremely important to us to follow your desires for the adoption process and especially your child’s birthday! We would want to help and support you in any way that we could.  We value family and we promise that you would always be a part of your child’s life in a way that you choose.
