Domestic Adoption

Dear Expectant Parent(s),

We as a family are truly blessed to be writing you this letter. You and I have different circumstances, but our circumstances are very much the same. You have an unplanned pregnancy, yet you love the child you will give birth to. I cannot have a second child, but would love for our family to grow. After the birth of our daughter, Leah, seven years ago, I was diagnosed with Endometriosis, causing me not be able to have children. Through this journey, we are at peace that the Lord has put it on our hearts to adopt. I believe it is the plan He had for us all along.

Brian and I have been with each other for 18 years. We met at Wilson High School on a blind date for the Winter formal. We continued dating for five years and were married in 2004. We graduated college at different times. I finished my BA and credential in Art Education in 2006 and Brian graduated with an Electrical Certificate and Journeyman's License in 2009. I currently am a high school art teacher and Brian works as a Locomotive Diesel Electrician for the Union Pacific Railroad.

Brian and I have owned our home for 8 years and have been very happy raising Leah in our neighborhood. One of the things that attracted us to our neighborhood were the trees. It is a place to relax and watch Leah grow up.  Brian and I respect and cherish our families. Monthly we visit both sets of Leah's grandparents' houses. Depending on your comfort level, we would love to have an open relationship with you.

We would love to meet with you if that is what you desire. We are open to any form of communication you are comfortable with. If you choose us as parents we want to send you pictures and updates about the child. We would also like a more open relationship with you after the child is born.  We pray God's blessing on you and know this is a very difficult and uncertain time. Please know that we care deeply for you and your child.

We are represented by Nightlight Christian Adoptions. If you want more information about us or would like to meet us, please contact Nightlight at 888-933-2287
