We are Jim and Shannon. We know that our lives are different from yours, yet in some ways they may be similar. We find ourselves in circumstances that we wish we could change. You are facing an unplanned pregnancy and we cannot become pregnant. We have been trying for some time to bring a new life into our family. We started our journey the traditional way, and then when that was unsuccessful, we tried infertility treatment including IVF. Now, we have decided that the best way for us to grow our family is through adoption. We know that you love your child and are facing some tough decisions. Maybe our paths have crossed for a reason and our journey is meant to coincide with yours.
We have been married for almost 11 years. We met at church and quickly knew that we would be together for the rest of our lives. We are best friends and love each other very much. We live in a suburban neighborhood in a three bedroom home with parks, good schools, and many other activities nearby. We have two beautiful cats, Moonpie and Magpie, and a great dog, Huckleberry. We have very supportive family and friends. We have friends and co-workers who have adopted and we see what a positive experience it has been for them.
Jim is a civil engineer with the US Army Corps of Engineer and works in dam safety. Shannon is a paralegal with the City of Tulsa. If we are blessed with a child, we plan for Shannon to stay home with the child for at least one year to foster good child development.
We would love to meet you, if that is your desire. We are open to whatever form of communication that makes you most comfortable. If you select us as parents, we hope to maintain a relationship with you after the baby is born. Of course, we also want to respect your privacy and whatever decision you make in those regards.
We know that you have a difficult discussion to make. We do care and want to help. We wish you the best, whatever you decide.
Jim and Shannon
