Birthmom Letter

Thank you so much for choosing life for your baby and taking the time to consider our family to welcome and care for this child. We can’t imagine the depth and bravery of this decision but are grateful that you are seeking the best for this child. We hope that this brief profile summary gives you some some comfort and a little insight into our family.

Our names are Marshall and Ashley and we have been married for about 11 years. We have two sons named Levi (7) and Knox (5) and a black lab named Maylie (9). We have lived our entire lives in Central-Illinois, but love to travel the country and see God’s beautiful creation. The majority of our extended families live fairly near to us as well. We deeply love music, playing music, and attending concerts and music festivals as a family. We also appreciate art, movies, camping, hiking, and outdoor activities. Marshall is a full-time facilities manager and a part-time worship director. He is very handy and loves showing our boys how to fix things. He’s a mellow, easy-going guy with lots of patience and is very passionate about music. Ashley is a stay-at-home mom, homemaker, and home educator. Ashley loves to dance and be silly with our boys and teach them how to be creative and artistic. We are a Christian family and are heavily involved in our church and church activities and desire to raise Jesus-loving children. Our heart for adoption began before we even got married and we now feel God’s full pull on our hearts to pursue the calling. We believe God has a big heart for adoption and our desire is to provide a home based on unconditional love and to meet this real need.

Thanks so much again for choosing life and considering adoption as well as taking the time to consider our family. Our promise is to provide a loving and caring home for the child and to do our absolute best to not only meet the child’s needs here and now, but to set the child up for a bright future.
