Birthmom Letter

We struggle to find the words to say to a woman who is making such a difficult decision to give someone else such a precious gift. However, we want you to know that we admire your courage and honored that you would take the time to learn a little bit more about our family. While we hope that we are the family that you are looking for, more than anything we want you to be at peace with your decision. We pray daily that God gives you strength as you go through this process. 

We married in 2007 and feel really blessed to have someone to share all of life’s ups and downs with as well as all of the mundane things that happen in between. We view marriage as a partnership of mutual love and respect and our goal is to model healthy relationships for our children. Chris is the best husband and father. He is equal parts businessman and handyman and easily relates with people. He is a very hard worker and is currently working towards his MBA. Dawn is a very loving wife and mother. She has worked part-time for over 10 years to ensure she is the primary caregiver to our children. Our daughter Abrielle has a tender spirit and loves all animals, however kitties are her favorite. She enjoys baking and reading and crafts and is very excited to welcome a new brother or sister. Our son Braden is ALL boy ALL the time but he has a sweet side that is unparalleled. He is fiercely loyal and loves jumping, climbing, sports and video games. He is also very excited to have a new brother or sister. Being parents is the greatest joy of our lives but after 2 difficult pregnancies, we decided against expanding our family biologically. We have a lot more love to give and could not be more excited to add another precious child into our hearts and home.

We genuinely appreciate you taking the time to view our profile and learn a little bit   more about our family. We look forward to meeting with you and would be honored to be considered as adoptive parents to your precious baby.

“I can’t think of a couple that is better suited to adopt. If I had to recommend a couple capable of providing a home for an adopted child, Chris and Dawn are who I would recommend above all the other couples and people I know.”

Friend

“They are amazing parents already. They have a great relationship together and they have a passion for adopting a baby as their own and there is no doubt in my mind that they would love them and care for them fully.”
