Dillon & Darlene

Dillon and Darlene have been married for 3.5 years and currently have no children.

Birthmom Letter

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to learn about us. We can only imagine what it must be like to be in your shoes. Know that we have been praying for you and the baby during this time. We have desired to grow our family but have been unable to conceive, due to my (Darlene) fertility health. We truly believe that adoption is not a quick fix for infertility, but something God has placed on our hearts. We would love the opportunity to expand our family through adoption. If you decide to place your child for adoption, and choose us, we would respect and honor your decisions along the way. We will do our best to give your child a life that is full of love, support, opportunities, and memories.

Dillon is an accountant and I am a third grade teacher at a small Catholic school. We attend Mass every Sunday at the same small church community that I teach in. We pray daily that our future child will grow to know, love, and serve the Lord and plan to raise them in the faith. We have been married for 3 ½ years and dated for 7 years prior to marriage. Our story began in high school, where we met in geometry class. We spent the majority of our time together and would cheer each other on at different sporting events. Although, personality wise, we are complete opposites, we complement each other well. Dillon’s organization skills, planning, and quiet demeanor balance Darlene’s spontaneous, procrastinating, and talkative self. It’s our differences that make us love and appreciate each other.

We think it is admirable that you are choosing life. If you chose us, we would want you to be assured that your child would know they were loved and that you were brave. Thank you again for taking the time to read about us. God bless!
