My name is Amanda, and the first thing that my husband, Kevin, and I want you to know is we have been praying for you. We know that if you are reading this letter, then you are considering making an adoption plan for your sweet child...and that can’t be easy. It is our honor and privilege that you might consider us to be the parents of your child and we may have the blessing of welcoming your child into our family. We faithfully trust in God’s plan for you, your baby, and the potential adoptive family of your child; whether that is us or another wonderfully loving couple.
Our story as a couple begins about 11 years ago when we met in the Young Singles group at our church. However, we did not really become close friends until Kevin was teaching my nephew in Kindergarten Sunday School. I was intrigued and wanted to find out more about the man who chose to teach children over attending Bible Study with peers; I knew he must be special. We developed a friendship that lead to a one year period of dating and engagement, and we’ve now been married over eight years. We continue to actively serve in our church in a variety of ways. After being directors of a Sunday School class for four years, we now serve as 1st Grade teachers in the Children’s Ministry. Kevin also serves as a deacon.
One of the first reasons that I fell in love with Kevin was his genuine love for children. I knew he would be an amazing father. When we were ready to start our family, we had some issues with infertility. After two years, we were finally able to conceive our son, Emerson. When we were ready to start the fertility process again, we had an even more difficult time. After about a year of mourning our infertility, we were ready to start the process of expanding our family through adoption. Both of our extended families are greatly encouraging and supportive of our plan to adopt.
If chosen, it is our hope you will see us as a family with so much love to pour into a child and genuine respect for the woman who made it possible for us to add to our family. We wish to have an on-going relationship with you to the extent that you are comfortable. May you be blessed, no matter what you decide is best for your baby.
