Dear Birth Mother,
We are so grateful that you've decided to read about our family, our hopes, and our journey. We can only imagine the incredibly hard decisions you are making and the roller coaster of emotions that go along. If you feel we could be the missing puzzle piece you are looking for, know that we will always share your love and our respect for you with your child.
Since before we got married, we knew that we would grow our family through love and adoption is one of the ways we wanted to do that. We have one biological son that is 4.5 years old. We have been diagnosed with secondary infertility. After the emotional and physical pain of fertility treatments and one surgery (for Christy), we decided that adoption is where our hearts and God are leading us. Our son couldn't be more excited to become a big brother! We are so thankful for the option of adoption. We are stronger as a family and stronger in our faith from our trials. We are excited for this next chapter to raise our children to have fun, enjoy life and love others.
We both love our jobs, but Christy is open to staying at home with our children if we decide that is what is best. We both have job flexibility that allows us to work from home when necessary. We have a large network of family and friends that will help with care. Our son attends the highest ranked early childhood education facility in that state. We expect to follow that path with our other adoptive children as he has absolutely flourished there.
Both of us enjoy just being together and find enjoyment in the mundane. Both of us come from very large, close-knit families. We also enjoy socializing with our friends. Many of our friends have young children as well and we cannot wait for our future child to join in on all the fun we have. We just love to make memories surrounded by those who mean most to us in life.
How do we put into words the love that we feel for two people that we don't even know yet - you and your child. We feel honored that you are taking the time to get a glimpse inside our family. We wish you the best, whatever you decide. We just can't thank you enough for considering us as worthy parents for your child!
Ryan & Christy
