Dear Expectant Parents,
With grateful hearts, we admire you for considering adoption, for choosing to give your precious child the gift of life, and for thinking about such a loving plan for your child’s future. With much respect, we understand that this is a difficult time for you filled with many questions and emotions. We pray daily that you will be filled with good health, peace and comfort in your hearts as you make your decision of what is best for you and your beautiful child.
God started writing our story a long time ago when we were born. Our names are Daniel and Shelley and we have been married for 12 wonderful years. With sadness, we had a miscarriage and then were unable to conceive biological children after that. We decided to add to our family through foster care and adoption 9 years ago. Through God’s perfect plan we were blessed to have Libby become part of our family when she was 6 years old. Libby is now 16 years old and is excited to become a good role model for a little brother or sister. We look forward to the continued joy of being parents and are excited to see God’s plan unfold for adding another child to our lives to love and care for.
We are able to provide a stable home environment where our children feel safe, secure, and loved. Dan is the CEO and Psychologist for our business. Shelley is a stay at home mom and works a very flexible schedule for our business.
For our family time we enjoy being outside in nature where we live on a lake in Western Kentucky. We also like watching movies, camping, cooking, traveling, and playing games together. We feel that it is important to teach our children about God’s love at home, through church activities, bible studies, and worship services.
We have a great relationship and enjoy spending time with our huge extended family. We communicate and visit them regularly, get together during holidays and special times throughout the year. Part of our extended family includes Libby’s biological brother and his adoptive family. We feel it is important to keep that special bond between the siblings through phone calls and visits several times a year.
Daniel and I know that God is writing a beautiful story for you and your child as He has written for us so far. Our family would be honored to be part of your and your child’s story. Depending on your comfort level, we would love to keep an open relationship with you. We would respect your privacy and will honor any decision you make, whether that is little or no contact, occasional letters and photos, or part of our extended family. We are praying for you as you seek to make a plan for your own and your little one’s life. Blessings to you, on your decision for Your Story and your Baby’s Story, whatever it may be.
Daniel and Shelley
