3: Hi! We are Doug and Eowyn. Thank you so much for reviewing our profile. We have given a lot of thought to what it would be like to give a child up for adoption, and how much we would need to know that that child would have a safe and loving home where the child would flourish. Our goal is to provide just that for the child that we adopt. Please know that as you do your reviews, we truly hope you find the special family you seek and that your decision will bring you peace and comfort. With best wishes and warmest regards, Doug and Eowyn (a-o-win) Tilley
