Hi, we are Gene and Mary. It is with great gratitude and humility that we introduce ourselves to you. Adoption is the most cherished gift we have been given as a couple and as a family. We were privileged to meet and love the two birthmothers of our children, Addie and Thomas. Our great desire to continue growing our family through adoption is only made possible by you as a mother.
As a married couple for 11 years, we have battled infertility and chose the beautiful journey of adoption in 2011. Our precious daughter, Addie, was placed in our loving arms that year! Exactly 3 years later, our precious son, Thomas, was welcomed into our family through another birthmother’s incredible love for her child. We can not wait to share our lives and family with another precious little one! Addie and Thomas are ready to be a big sister and a big brother too!
Addie, our eight year old daughter, is a very smart, imaginative little girl who enjoys reading, playing the piano, playing outside with her cousins, art projects, playing basketball, and being silly with her little brother. Thomas, our five year old son, is an expert when it comes to trucks, trains, and dinosaurs. He loves to snuggle on movie nights, play with all his vehicles in dirt/sand, play soccer, and he enjoys going to preschool with all his best buddies. We celebrate the lives of our children and the unconditional love of their Birthmothers. We are very open about our children's adoption stories, and we share the adoption experience with them in age appropriate ways as they grow.
With Mary as a stay-at-home mom, we are able to provide a stable home environment where our children feel safe, secure, and loved immensely. We spend much time together outdoors on our property, going on park and zoo outings, playing in our neighborhood with grandparents and cousins, taking vacations, and many days sharing popcorn/movie nights together! We know that days may be long and sometimes hard, but the years with our children are so very short. Spending quality time together praying, playing, learning, and experiencing life is what we do best!
We feel truly honored by the opportunity to open our hearts and our lives to another precious child. You are making this possible by your incredible love as a mother. Your act of love is the greatest gift you will be giving your child and our family. Our prayers are with you and your baby everyday, and we look forward to spending time getting to know you. May your journey always be full of peace.
Gene, Mary, Addie, and Thomas
