I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and a Master's Degree in Ed. Leadership. I taught for many years. However, I couldn't be more happy with my current life situation. Being a stay-at-home mom to three beautiful, caring kids is more than I could have ever dreamed. We usually lead a busy life; running to horse lessons and shows, traveling with our camper, entertaining friends and family, and running our family businesses. I am involved with the school PTO and volunteer whenever needed. Lately, with current world situations, we spend much more time at home. We are blessed to have a large property with many animals, on a river and creek. We use this property to garden, bike, fish, and enjoy each other and our animals.

Dear Birthmother

First, we would like to thank you for considering us. We also want to thank you for choosing adoption for your baby, rather than other options. We have 2 biological children and 1 adopted child (so far). We would like you to know that there is no reason to wonder or worry if we would be able to love an adopted child as much as a biological child. The love is the same. The amount of love a mother's heart can hold is astounding. Each child (adopted or biological) is a gift from God and we are beyond thankful for each one. We promise to love your baby with everything we have. We promise to talk with the child about you. We promise to send pictures and updates to you throughout the child's life. We promise to be loving, kind, and supportive adoptive parents and to be thankful every day that we were chosen to love another child.

Reason to Adopt

My husband and I have known each other since high school. We have both always wanted a large family. We struggled with fertility, but ultimately got pregnant and had two children. However, we still wanted more children. Rather than having more of our own, we choose to adopt. It has always been something I have felt fated to do. We were so excited, thankful, and blessed to be chosen as adoptive parents once. Now, we are hoping for one more child to finally complete our family.

Why We'd Like to Adopt

I have known since about age 10 that I wanted to adopt...no matter what. I've always known I had a special love for children in my heart. I am an only child and always knew I wanted my children to have siblings. I loved the idea of a large family sitting around a dinner table together and making memories. Our biological children are now 8 and 9. Our baby, who is adopted, is 10 months. We would love for her to have a sibling close to her age to grow, laugh, and play with her. For us, 4 children is the perfect number to make our family complete.

Family and Community Support

After adopting our first child, the outpouring of love and support was amazing. Our family was instantly in love with her, stopping in for snuggle time frequently. Both grandmothers live nearby (one right across the street) and beg to babysit, even though it's rare that we need a sitter. Our small-town community welcomed her with open arms. She has been such a blessing and source of happiness for our community and family. We are positive that with another adoption we would see the same level of love and support from both family and the community.

Cultural Differences

I feel that, as a mother, it is my job to celebrate the differences in my children. Whether they like different sports, have different opinions throughout life, or have cultural differences. We will make every effort possible to teach an adoptive child about their culture, if it differs from our own. We will support decisions they make regarding culture as they grow and continue to ask questions and learn with them. We will seek out others who can offer support and knowledge in areas we may not know as much about; whether that be hair, food, religion, etc. Ultimately, with the support of my husband, we will do everything in our power to show unconditional love and support to all our children.
