Hoping to adopt
Dear Birth Mother,
We must begin by thanking you for choosing adoption. We can't begin to understand all of the emotions, concerns, and prayerful consideration you have put into your decision; but we can't thank you enough for your decision to choose life.
We have developed this portfolio to give you a snapshot into our lives and the type of home we wish to offer to a child. In it, we will include photos of our family, friends, and activities that fill our lives. We cannot underscore how tremendously honored and humbled we are to present this to you.
Family and Friends
Our family is very important to us, and adoption is the means by which we hope to grow our family. We are not only "husband and wife," but we are also best friends and genuinely like to spend time together! We have a Christian home, and the faith and values taught to us by our families are the bedrock of our marriage. It will also serve as our guide as parents.
We have been fortunate to have great familial role models and have witnessed the examples from generations of relatives navigating the ebbs and flows of life with grace, love, and compassion. We promise to continue this tradition in order to provide a home filled with faith, love, laughter, and patience.
We are so blessed to have such a loving, fun family, and we are also blessed to have great friends in our life who, in addition to our family, provide us with a great support system. We have aligned ourselves with friends who have similar values as our own, and we can always rely on our friends when we need to laugh, cry, or just share our lives. We have had the joy of watching many of our friends grow their family, and we look forward to sharing that experience with our friends as well.
First off, I am a Christian, and I have been married for almost 3 years to my beautiful wife. I work in the medical field and have a doctorate degree, which I earned in 2014. At my work, I get to interact with many people, and I take great pride in being able to help these individuals lead a healthier, better life. In my spare time, I love to exercise - especially lifting weights - watch sports, listen to music, watch movies, and spend time with my wife, our wonderful dog, and our friends and family.
My Christian faith is the driving force in all aspects of my life. I always strive to do the right thing in all situations. God and family mean everything to me. As a certified teacher, I have spent a lot of time with children of all ages, and I've loved it. I've always known that I am meant to do two things with my life - be a wife and mother. I have the most amazing husband, and now we can't wait to add children to our lives. I enjoy baking, exercising, traveling, and all things Disney. In our home, we love spending time with our 12-year-old cocker spaniel and filling the house with love and laughter.
Our Favorite Things
Other then our amazing friends and family, we also love holidays! Christmas is our favorite, and this past Christmas was the first in our own house. This past year, we dressed up for Halloween with a Mary Poppins theme, hosted Thanksgiving for our family, and have had a few neighborhood get-togethers at our house. To us, holidays are about celebrating togetherness with loved ones and all the warmth that comes with it.
We also enjoy cooking and staying fit. Cooking and baking are a favorite hobby of Alyssa's, and it's a great way to connect with family, make the holidays memorable, and gather together.
In order to work off all of the baking, we both enjoy exercising and staying active. One of Daniel's favorite pastimes is lifting weights, while Alyssa prefers running and gymnastics.
