Dear Expectant Parent,
Thank you for taking some time to learn about our family. It takes courage and love to place your child for adoption. We will always honor and respect this gift. We will ensure that he or she grows to respect and understand your selflessness and what a gift they are to all of us. If you desire, we are happy to have an open adoption.
We are growing our family through adoption. Due to medical issues we are unable to have biological children, but we love being parents. In November 2013, God blessed us with our daughter, Neva Rose. Neva's adoption was finalized in 2014. There is so much joy and love in our family, that we would like to share that with another child.
We live in a four bedroom home in a cozy neighborhood outside of a small town. We are blessed with friendly neighbors. Neva enjoys playing iwth the neighborhood children. We have a nice sized yard for playing and a fire pit for roasting marshmallows. There are several parks and beaches in our town.
Brian is a caprenter and stained glass artist. Shannon does production scheduling for a small manufacturing company. Brian owns his own company, so his schedule is flexible to provide "day time" care for our children. Shannon will take twelve weeks of "maternity leave" when we receive another child. Brian will take over day time care when Shannon goes back to work.
Our extended family is very excited and supportive of another adoption. Neva has been welcomed into our extended family with great joy and love. Everyone is excited about the thought of another child! Our child will have many cousins as playmates. Needless to say there are some grandparents who are very excited about a new grandchild to spoil.
We respect the magnitude of the decision you are making. Please know that there are people praying for your peace and happiness.
Brian and Shannon
