Dear Birthmother

We know you have hopes and dreams for your baby. We hope our dreams match yours. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us. We are excited to grow our family through adoption again. Due to infertility, we are unable to conceive. It is through the miracle of adoption that we are able to create our family. We feel so blessed to have been able to adopt our son in 2013 and can't wait to have another child to love, nurture and share our lives with. If chosen to be the parents of your child, we will always honor the trust you place in us and will love and cherish your baby as strongly and as surely as you would. Your child will always know that you care and they are loved by you and that the decision to make an adoption plan was done out of a deep love for them. If you would like us to, we will regularly send photos/letters/videos so you can see for yourself that your child is loved and happy. We are committed to offering your child a life of unconditional love, constant nurturing, and a great education. We know you have a lot to consider. Thank you for taking the time to consider us.

Reason to Adopt

Due to infertility, we are unable to conceive. We adopted our son, Walker, in 2013 are excited to grow our family through adoption again.

About Walker

Walker is an amazing little boy. We are blessed that he came into our lives through the miracle of adoption. He has brought us so much joy. He is full of energy and always has a smile on his face. He loves to play games like Chutes and Ladders, Candy Land and Old Maid. He is very bright and excited to start kindergarten in the fall. Walker says that he cannot wait to read his favorite bedtime stories to his new baby brother or sister. He prays for his new sibling every night and is so excited to become a big brother. We know he will be a great big brother.

Our Relationship with Walkers Birthmother

We have a great relationship with Walker's birthmother, Heather. She is a wonderful, caring person and we are so honored that she chose us to raise her child. Here is a letter from Heather: "John and Jessica are some of the most amazing people I've ever met. They cared so much about me and Walker before we even met. I love our open adoption and how I can talk to them whenever I want, we share a very open relationship with one another and I couldn't be luckier. They have been the best parents anyone could have asked for. I am very glad we found each other, they have filled my life and my family with so much love and joy. I love them with all my heart."

Personal Respect for a Birthmother (Johns Mother)

We have a unique and personal respect for a birthmother and the decision to create an adoption plan. When John's mom was fifteen she made an adoption plan for her first child, Missy. Missy was adopted as an infant by a very loving family. About 34 years later Missy and John's mother reconnected. John first met his "new" older sister in 2004. Since that time John and Missy have become closer and closer. We are so thrilled to have her in our lives. She absolutely adores Walker and she is so excited that we are planning to adopt again.
