Dear Expectant Parent(s),
We know you have a lot to think about and many people to consider in making the choice for adoption. We have compassion for the emotional journey you are walking as we can only imagine the road is a long one. We want you to know that any decision you make we fully support it. We have faith the best solution for everyone will be found during this journey.
We are Tammy and Kevin. We met in the summer of 1991 and were married in the fall of 1992 in a beautiful ceremony surrounded by our family, faith, and friends. We have been married for 22 years and love each other more today than we did yesterday. We cherish every moment of our time together and feel very blessed to have found one another. Our individual characteristics and personalities joined together on our Wedding Day to become a couple who are very loving, caring, faithful, and family-oriented.
After we married, we bought a nice little home and wanted to begin our family. We tried to have children but due to circumstances out of our control we were unable to conceive. When we were unable to become pregnant we tried fertility treatments without success. However we never gave up the dream of expanding our family so God led us to a new dream, a dream to Adopt.
We understand the choice you are making as Tammy’s family made an adoption plan of placing their youngest son with an Aunt and Uncle. Tammy’s parents were both young and the oldest brother was born with a hole in his heart. Due to their young age, financial struggles, and their eldest sons continuing medical complications they made the adoption plan for Tammy’s youngest brother. This choice was not to ease the struggle of the parents, but for the wellbeing and the love they had for their son as they knew he would be loved as one of their own. Tammy’s mother always says her son had the best of both worlds, someone who loved him enough to put his needs first and someone who loved him enough to adopt him and welcome him into their home.
We feel that we can make a difference in the life of a child. Our child will grow up in a quaint scenic neighborhood with tree-lined streets where lots of events are focused on children like Family Fun Day, Easter Egg Hunt, Pool Parties, Community Picnic, and at Christmas we have a community gathering to celebrate the season. Our community is very active with tons of things for children and families to do. Besides community events there are several playgrounds, nature trails, and ponds.
We once heard someone say in a very poetic setting “This is my story, your story, and most of all it is His Story”. We believe there is a reason we could not have children and that God chose your story and our story to make “His Story”. We believe being a parent isn’t just about bearing a child; it is about giving that child a life. As someone once said “children are never really ours, they are just entrusted to us for a time by God”. We believe that God led us to adoption not only to tell our story and your story, but most of all a child’s story. For every story is “His Story” after all.
As a family longing to be parents we open our hearts and our arms to receive the most precious gift one could ever receive, a child of our own. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to share our story with you and considering creating a new story together with us!
Tammy & Kevin
