We are Mark and Katie and we are so excited to be on this adoption journey! We would like to thank you for looking at our adoption profile and are honored that you might consider us as adoptive parents of your baby. We are so excited and anticpating the day we will be able to add a child to our family! We know this decision is not easy for you to make but we commend you on your bravery. We hope we can be part of your journey and give you peace with your decision.
We would like to tell you a little bit more about ourselves. Our story began in 2009 while we were both attending college at Winthrop University. We quickly became close friends and shortly after we realized we had developed stronger feelings for one another. We started dating on March 5th, 2009. On July 2nd, 2011 Mark surprised Katie with a BBQ and proposed with both extended families present. It was the easiest response Katie has ever given! On August 4, 2012 we were joined in marriage surrounded by our friends and families. It was the most joyous day and a wonderful start to our lives together! We live in a quiet, safe neigborhood with neighbors of all ages. Mark is a sales representative and works very hard to meet the demands of his job. Katie is a speech language pathologist and works in home health. In our spare time we love spending time together by traveling, taking our dog on walks, watching movies, and going to various sporting events.
After many heartbreaking years struggling with infertility and a miscarriage we realized that the way we intended to start a family was not God’s plan for us. After surrendering our plans to the Lord, we felt a strong call to adopt. We realize that we have been chosen for an amazing and rewarding journey. Our hope is to not only gain a child and create a family through this process but to also support you as we know you are making the toughest decision of your life. After looking back at the years of struggling with infertility we have become thankful of how strong it has made our marriage and led us to an opportunity to adopt. We truly cannot wait to become parents and be able to provide a child with love, security, and happiness.
Our promise is to love your child unconditionally, support and guide your child in all endeavors, raise your child in faith filled home where they will know the love of Jesus, provide a home full of joy and laughter, and provide opportunities that encourage your child to dream big. We will always honor and respect you so that your child understands the sacrifice you chose was made from love. We know that you are in the midst of making some tough decisions. We want you to know that we will be praying for you with whatever decision you make. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us and we hope to hear from you soon.
Katie and Mark
