1: Dear Expectant Parent, Steve and I would like to start off by saying that we appreciate you taking the time to look at our profile and getting to know who we are. We admire the bravery you carry by making this decision to have another family raise your child. By allowing Steve and I the privledge of raising your little one it will help us to form a family of love and support within our own home. The reason that we are choosing the means of adoption is because of fertility issues and the fact that I myself, Shannon, have always had an overwhelming desire to adopt a child ever since I turned 18. In the next few pages we hope to give you some insight into our life and you will be able to see what type of people we are. Again, we do appreciate your consideration. May God bless you during your journey. Thank you, Steven and Shannon
2: Steve and I met in high school. We shared a couple of classes, graduated, and then did not see each other again until ten years later. When Steve and I started dating he informed me that he always had a crush on me in high school and never told me. To date we have been married for five years.
3: We like to act silly together and our wedding day was no exception!
4: Misty, Tucker, and Blackie are our three pets. So far they have been our children and that is exactly how we treat them. They have a pretty good life! | When we started looking for a home we definately wanted one with enough room for our family to grow.
5: Steve is a very responsible person that does exactly what he says he will do. Reliable, good sense of humor, and compassionate are just a few words I can use to describe my hubby. Oh, I absolutely cannot forget that he is the biggest Denver Broncos fan EVER. From August to February every year football is always on the t.v. Needless to say we already have a Broncos onesie at home in preparation for the new addition that joins our family. Steve is a wonderful provider and is very supportive. He listens to me when I need to vent after a very difficult day at work. I have no doubt that he will be a woderful father.
6: Shannon is a very loving person who dreams of becoming a mother. Little things are what I love most about her. To see her with children is when she is at her best, whether it is babysitting a coworkers son or helping my niece or nephew with their homework. A natural glow suddenly imminates from her during these times. She loves to decorate the house or design some new craft that she thinks of. Most recently she has knitted hats for premature babies in the NICU at the hospital she works at. I know she will be a great mom and she wouldn't rest until our children have everything they need and more.
7: Shannon is a nurse. | Steve is a public safety officer.
8: Yearly trip to Disney World and Daytona Beach with Steve's family. The kids always enjoy spending time with Steve. | St. Thomas is our favorite place to travel. It was one of our stops on our honeymoon cruise.
9: The children within our family love their Uncle Steve | Holidays at our house are very big! Our yard gets decorated for almost everything. We each carve our own pumpkin the day before Halloween and place them on the front porch. We definately have traditions that we like to share.
10: Shannon with Aunt Sara and "Mimi"
11: Future Grandma's, Grandpa's, Aunt, and Uncle
12: Thirteen inches of snow, just in time to fly home from New York! I kept telling myself that I was going to build a snowman, after the snow I had Frosty! | We both love to travel....
13: Steve was worn out from walking through Disney World all day. He always jokes saying that he is going to put a hammock in the back yard. Sometimes I think he may do it.
14: Steve was a big part of his best friends sons 4th birthday party. He brought the fire truck from work for the kids to ride. They were very excited. | Steve is the Godfather to his best friends son.
15: Steve and I believe that it is very important to have our families involved in the raising of our children. We also plan for one of us to be home when the other is at work. Steve does work full time and I am able to design my schedule to my discretion. When there are circumstances that we need someone to watch our children then we have Steve's parents readily available. Steve's parents live only 2 miles from our home!
17: Steve and I would like to thank you for taking the time to get to know who we are. Thank you, Steven and Shannon
