2: Our Promise We are excited and grateful that you are taking the time to read our letter and learn about our family, thank you. All of us are looking forward to welcoming a new baby into our home and family - a place filled with love, laughter and adventure. We admire and respect the courage it took to give your child the gift of life and your selflessness in making the journey towards adoption. Our family has much to offer your child and they will grow up well cared for and in a loving home with every opportunity to succeed. We hope that you will come to see what we already know in our hearts - that we can provide your child a loving, secure and happy life. Our first priority is to make your child feel safe and loved. As a family we have values to share with your child such as friendships, compassion, honesty, faith, hard work, courage and keeping an open mind. We will surround them with support through the good times in life and the challenges they will face. Your child will be allowed to make their own mistakes, knowing their parents will be there to catch them when they fall. We will give them the tools to know right from wrong and raise them to be a strong, independent person with a love for life!
3: Your child will be encouraged to pursue educational opportunities that will allow them to find a happy and secure place in the world. Please be assured your child will also be offered opportunities to explore and find their interests in the arts, sports and to create long lasting friendships. Along with sending pictures, we would be honored to meet you and share this with your child when presenting information to them about their adoption. We will answer your child's questions about their adoption openly and honestly along with the help of God. Your child will understand and honor your choice and always know our respect and gratitude for the blessing you have given to our family. We wish you strength in finding the best possible home for your baby. Yours Truly, Brad, Marci & Onnika
5: Brad & Marci We met through some mutual friends while Marci was working in Minneapolis and Brad was living in Brodhead. After two years of dating we were married and settled in Brodhead, where both of us were living close to our families. Brad admired Marci's sense of humor, the interests they had in common and the same morals they shared. He would describe Marci's personality as considerate and loving. Brad has a fun personality and Marci respected him for the hard work he did. Marci describes Brad's personality as determined and patient. She admires his ability to be a good leader and how he treats his employees with fairness and respect. Together they have important values to share with their children that include treating the people you meet with respect, being honest, and always putting your best effort into everything you do.

18: Getting To Know Us WHO ARE WE? Hello, we are Brad and Marci Williams, a fun loving, happily married and financially secure couple. We both have been truly blessed in our lives and are very excited to have a second child be a part of our family. Together as a family we enjoy spending time with our friends and their families and outdoor activities that include swimming, boating, biking, sledding and snowmobiling. Brad enjoys farming and spending time in Northern Wisconsin fishing, snowmobiling and enjoying the outdoors. Marci enjoys spending time working in the yard, sewing and interior decorating. Brad is a good leader who is patient and determined. Marci has a patient, caring and positive personality and enjoys being around people.
19: Our current family includes our five year old daughter, Onnika. She is a fun-loving, happy and adventurous, little girl who enjoys being outdoors biking, swimming, fishing and helping around the farm. Her favorite winter activities include sledding, snowmobiling and making snowmen! Along with enjoying the outdoors, she likes to help the kitchen - especially baking chocolate chip cookies! WHERE DO WE LIVE? Our house is located in the country, about ten minutes out of town and three miles from the Illinois border. Our ranch style house has four bedrooms, three baths and a finished basement that includes a family room and large play area. We are fortunate to enjoy the peacefulness of the country and be located forty five minutes from larger cities that include Madison, Wisconsin and Rockford, Illinois. WHAT ARE OUR OCCUPATIONS? Brad operates a dairy operation with his brother.
20: The farm includes dairy cows along with corn and hay crops. He truly enjoys his job and feels fortunate to have an occupation that his children can be actively involved with him on a frequent basis. Marci works three days a week as a secretary at the local hospital. She is thankful that she enjoys her work and that it provides a great balance for our family. WHY ADOPT? After Onnika was born we were not able to get pregnant again. We feel God has led us in the direction of adoption and has blessed us in many ways to offer a loving, caring and nurturing Christian home. We are truly grateful for the opportunity to expand our family through the miracle of adoption.
