I often hear my mother say, “We are so fortunate to have been blessed with a daughter through adoption.” Just like us, my parents struggled to conceive a child naturally and I was adopted as an infant. They have always considered themselves so lucky to be able to experience the love a child brings to their family thanks to adoption. We are looking forward to embracing and loving a child through adoption just like my parents.
We are Michelle and Jon. We were married 12 years ago on a horse farm in Lexington, KY. After struggling with infertility for a number of years, we have re-evaluated what God has in store for us. This was an easy decision for us, as Michelle was adopted as an infant, and we feel adopting is our opportunity to repay many of the blessings we have been so fortunate to share. We are thankful that through adoption, we will fulfill our dream of having a family.
We recognize that you are in the process of making the most difficult decision of your life. While we will never be able to experience the emotions you are feeling, our history with adoption helps us to empathize with you. With the love and support of our family and friends, we are excited to welcome a child to our family with loving and open arms. We will do our best to teach, guide and encourage the dreams that your child will develop. Your child will be the biggest, most important blessing of our lives and will be celebrated and loved.
There is so much we would like to tell you about ourselves to help you in your decision, but most of all we want you to know that we have so much love to share. We hope the following pages will give you a little more insight into our relationship, our families, and our friends.
We are grateful for your consideration as you make this most difficult decision. Our thoughts and prayers are with you as you and we travel down this shared path.
Michelle and Jon
