Dear Expectant Parents,
We are so happy you have chosen to read more about us! Please know that no matter what decision you make, we admire the love you have for your child and the courage it takes to learn about us.
We met as two young freshmen nervous about the new high school environment. We quickly became best friends! After high school, we reconnected as college students and began dating. We married in 2015. Even after four years of marriage and two years of courtship, we still treasure our friendship most. After college graduation, Thomas found his calling as a police officer. Bailie knew from a young age that she wanted to be a momma, but was far less certain about what job she wanted prior to motherhood. She decided law school was the path she should take and she is now a practicing attorney. Bailie looks forward to staying home with our children 2-3 days a week while our parents to care for the children when we are at work.
We always knew we wanted a big family of biological and adopted children. Three years, numerous infertility treatments, and one devastating miscarriage later, we realized God had a different plan for our family and we couldn't be more excited for this opportunity to grow our family through adoption!
We are proud members of a local Lutheran church and we find great joy in regularly attending services. We hope to raise your baby to understand God's love for them and to understand how your sacrifice is one of the hardest and godliest things a parent can do for their baby.
We live in a three-bedroom home in a quiet neighborhood near where we grew up. Both of our sets of parents live ten minutes away and only one mile from each other. We have three sisters, three brothers, one nephew, and seven cousins ranging in ages from 2 to 15. We value our family traditions more than almost anything! While we have not been blessed with children of our own, we have been asked to serve as godparents by three separate families for five different children. We love spending time with these children and care for them as if they were our own.
Thank you for having the courage, strength and faith to consider adoption for your child. We believe you must be a person of tremendous conviction and unconditional love to consider making such a brave decision for your child. We pray for grace and peace for you throughout this process!
Thomas & Bailie
