Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to introduce ourselves and tell you about our family!
My husband Andrew and I live in Casper, Wyoming and have been married for five years. We are both teachers; Andrew teaches elementary P.E. and I teach high school social studies. We enjoy being active, especially in the summers, playing softball, volleyball, and golf. We love camping, fishing, being in the mountains, and walking our black lab, Peyton. We are very close with our family and spend a great deal of time with both sides. Our faith is at the center of both our individual lives and marriage. We attend church regularly and meet with our small group once a week to further our relationship and walk with God through fellowship with other believers.
Our decision to adopt has come over the course of a three-year journey. After being unable to get pregnant the first year of our marriage, I went to my doctor who told me it would be very difficult for me to get pregnant naturally. Additionally, at age four, Andrew was diagnosed with kidney cancer. Though Andrew is healthy today, a side effect of the intensive chemotherapy is the inability to have children. Through the tears and grief of our infertility journey, we felt God calling us toward adoption. Our journey has been a roller coaster, but we are so excited to begin our lives as parents and grow our family through adoption.
We recognize the choice you are making is one of the most difficult choices a woman can face in her lifetime. Entrusting your child to be raised by someone else requires incredible bravery, strength, honesty, and most of all, love for your child. We feel extremely honored to be considered as adoptive parents for your child. We know whatever decision you make will be made in love. May you be blessed, whatever you decide.
