FC: Roger & Stacey | Dear Birthmother, We are honored you would consider us to be adoptive parents. We believe a child is a special gift and can't wait to welcome a child into our family. We promise a home full of love and laughter, guidance and patience. We look forward to becoming parents through adoption.
1: Roger & I have been married for 7 years. We enjoy spending time together, being outside and staying active. We enjoy trying new things like skydiving! We love a quiet day at the beach or hiking in the mountains. We go to an indoor climbing gym, are active members of the YMCA and enjoy relaxing with yoga. We promise to teach our child to respect and enjoy nature, to encourage an active lifestyle and have fun together. We will give our child lots of hugs and kisses, pick them up when they are down and give them a home full of laughter. | Roger & Stacey
2: Our Lives Together | Roger & I met in college and knew immediately there was something special between us. We began dating. We were engaged a year later and then Roger was deployed to Iraq. We were married when Roger returned. It was a difficult time but our faith and love for each other kept us strong.
3: We have always known we wanted to start a family and knew that we wanted to adopt. Stacey was injured in a car accident and knew pregnancy wasn't an option at the time. We knew then it was God's way of leading us towards adoption. We look forward to growing our family and look forward to welcoming a child into our lives. | Happiness

He loves whole-heartedly. | Surf Fishing | Catching a baseball game with a great friend! | Grilling dinner... YUM!
5: Stacey from Roger | Stacey is my best friend and the love of my life. She is an incredibly generous and thoughtful person. She is always willing to help a friend or family member when they are in need. She is passionate about life and her beliefs. One of Stacey's greatest strengths is her ability to maintain a positive outlook during difficult times and to find the good in nearly all people. Her faith in God and belief in what is right is a tremendous inspiration to me, and makes me be the best person I can be. She is an extremely fair and kind woman, and I cannot wait to see her as a mother. | Preparing a healthy dinner | Stacey & her family at the beach | Ice Fishing Trip | Traveling with friends | Botanical Gardens | S
