1: Thank you for taking the time to view our profile. We realize this must be a very difficult decision for you. We admire your strength and courage.... | We hope by reading our profile you will get to know us better. | Our Family....
2: Dear Birth Mother, We are Linda,Tom and Samantha. We have been together for 8 years and married for 7. We were introduced through a close friend and realized we were suppose to be together. We enjoy many of the same interest. As a family we enjoy skiing, hiking, swimming, biking, and traveling. We especially love going to the pool and the playground. We also love spending time with our extended families. We are so lucky to have such a great support system. Both our parents live close and are able to babysit at a moments notice. We had tried to conceive since we got married, but we were unable to have biological children. We immediately proceeded with adoption because I truly believe we were always meant to adopt. Tom and I love children. For as long as I can remember I have wanted a family. Finally in 2009 our beautiful daughter was brought to us through adoption. It was the happiest day of our lives. We can't wait to complete our family with another amazing child for us all to love. We got to meet Samantha's Bio-parents. It was such a wonderful experience. They were so happy to know that there child would be loved and well taken care of. Everyday I think of them, and I say an extra prayer for them. They have a special place in our hearts, as will you!! We have been waiting a long time to adopt our 2nd child. We can't wait to pour our love into them. It would be a blessing from God and you to adopt a 2nd child to love, cherish, and protect.
3: Hi I am Samantha! | We have a beautiful daughter named Samantha. She is smart, sweet, generous, caring,and fun. Samantha loves to climb,dance, and read. She can't wait to share her love and special memories with a sibling. Everyday she asks me when she will get a sister or brother to play with.
4: Samantha! | Karate! | Samantha loves taking Ballet class. | Samantha had her 3 year old Birthday Party with Princess Belle. | Hanging with Friends at the Zoo.
5: We are so Blessed to have our wonderful daughter in our lives, as well has having her Biological parents in our lives. We correspond through letters and pictures every few months. We are so grateful to them for giving us the opportunity to be parents. The miracle of life is such a blessing and being parents is such an honor. We want you to know that your child will be loved, honored and protected for the rest of our lives. We want our children to know how important and wonderful they are, and that they can depend on us for anything. We are so excited to add to our family. We can 't wait to give this baby all of our love and attention and watch him/her grow to be a smart, self confident, happy, healthy, human being. Samantha constantly talks about having a baby brother or sister to play and laugh with. She loves to be around babies. Right now she is an only child and misses the connection of having a sibling to giggle with and share special family memories with. Tom and Samantha have a special bond. He loves to teach her to ski, take her to karate class and hike, but their favorite together time is at the playground, where they swing for hours. Another special tradition Samantha and Daddy do together is placing the star on top of the Christmas tree. It's her favorite thing to do!!
