1: Dear Birth Parent(s) | Dear Birth Parent(s), Thank you so much for considering our profile. We cannot imagine the emotions you are experiencing, but our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Your choice of life for your baby shows such incredible love and courage. As you make this decision, we pray that God will guide you to the right family and give you comfort and peace in your decision. We want you to know that even though we have not met you, we are praying for you and your baby. We hope this book will give you a better idea of who we are as you make this decision. We met in high school in 1999 and were married three years later in July 2002. We are currently looking forward to celebrating our 9th wedding anniversary. We married in college and supported each other through earning our degrees. We always knew we wanted a family, and after finishing school and starting our careers, it was time. We began trying to have children but were unsuccessful, so we began fertility treatments. After many failed attempts, we were faced with the choice of in-vitro or adoption. We prayed for guidance in this decision. Adoption brought about a peace in our hearts, and we knew it was the right choice for starting our family. We are excited to see the family God has in store for us. We have a close relationship with each other and enjoy doing things together. We love to watch movies and sports, travel, and spend time with our family and friends. We are also very involved with our local church where Jordan counsels and assists in worship and Leeann teaches Bible class. We consider ourselves very blessed to have such a warm, loving extended family nearby. We have a niece and nephew who have provided us with great training and are very involved in our lives. Both of our parents are looking forward to adding more grandchildren to the family. Our extended family loves to get together often and celebrate holidays together. They are also excited to meet the new addition to our family. Thank you so much for considering us to be adoptive parents for your child. If you choose us to parent, we promise to love your child as our own. We promise to raise your child in a strong Christian home filled with God, love, support, and stability. As we anxiously await the new addition to our family, we pray for you and the child you are carrying. We pray for strength and comfort for you, and we pray that God will grant you peace in the decision you make. In Christian Love, Jordan and Leeann

6: JORDAN | About Jordan (told by Leeann): Jordan is a wonderful husband and will be an actively involved, loving father. He has always wanted to have children, and he is absolutely adored by my niece. Jordan is patient, supportive, and loving. I have seen what kind of dad he will be through his interaction with my niece and nephew and through his work. Jordan has his masters degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and is the therapist at a residential home for adolescents who have been taken out of their own home. He has such a compassionate heart and genuinely cares for and loves these teens. They could not ask for a better male role-model and advocate. I am blessed to have Jordan as a husband and partner. He is a wonderful listener and is laid back and relaxed. He is also very involved in our local church where he counsels, assists in worship and coordinating worship, and teaches high school and adult Bible classes. Jordan loves basketball and football, especially the Razorbacks. He also loves music and playing the guitar. I cannot wait to see Jordan as a father. I have no doubts that he will be amazing, and I know that he is very excited.

9: Leeann | About Leeann (told by Jordan): Leeann is a wonderful wife and is my best friend. Words cannot do justice to the way in which I feel about Leeann. She is beautiful both inwardly and outwardly. Leeann is caring, kindhearted, generous, loving, dependable, affectionate, smart, funny, and patient. Leeann also has a very strong work ethic. One of the things that has always been of interest to me is her willingness and enjoyment in tackling construction projects with her father. She has pretty much become an expert at painting and laying tile floors! Leeann is truly the most gifted person I have ever met, in that she can pretty much do anything she sets her mind to. Leeann has a master’s degree in Reading and is currently a literacy specialist at the local elementary school. Over the years that we have been married I have witnessed Leeann interact with countless children through her profession as an elementary school teacher, Bible class teacher, and with our niece and nephew. Leeann has a true and undeniable gift in connecting with small children. It is always amazing to watch how kids will naturally seek her out in crowds and how even small infants will smile at her when they have never met her before. I have never had any doubt that Leeann will be a great mother. Leeann loves to watch movies, read, work on home projects, travel, draw, and paint. Leeann is an amazing person who will be an amazing mother.
