1: Hello! Thank you for giving us the chance to share with you a glimpse of who we are. We pray that you may feel God's presence and guidance with the tough decisions that are ahead of you and we promise that the unconditional love that you have for this child will not be forgotten. We pray that God will continue to bless you as you consider joining our family on this journey. As you look through this book, you will see a family that loves each other, has LOTS of fun together, and spends a lot of time enjoying activities together. As parents, we are extremely excited to add another precious child to our lives. We feel that God has called us to adopt and we know in our hearts that we have plenty of love to offer to another child. We've kind of always thought that down the road some day we might adopt, and here we are and we're so excited! Our children are pretty excited too! Our boys can't wait to have a little sister to play with, cuddle up with, and teach new things to. Jenna has longed for a little sister that she can help take care of, share stories, do girly things with, and become best friends with! She will be such a little blessing for Jenna and Jenna will be a blessing to her! We promise to provide her with unconditional love, the opportunity to experience new things, a good education, and a strong Christian upbringing where we will teach her about God's unfailing love. Family is very important to Brady and I. We absolutely love spending time with our kids and we want them to know every day that we love and adore them! If you decide to choose us as her adoptive family, she will be loved and cherished as we raise her in our household, and she will be reminded often how much you love her too. We pray that God will bless you as you make your decision and we thank you for considering our family as we step out in this journey together. This little girl will be the bond that connects all of us for life.
2: Once upon a time we were two little kids who "dated" in 5th and 6th grade. Throughout our school years we remained friends until he asked me to our junior prom in 1994. We've been in love ever since! In June of 1997 we were married. We have had an amazing 13 years of marriage filled with joy, laughter, fun and great memories!
4: My heart is filled with joy and excitement about adding a little girl to our family.! I absolutely love being a mom! I am a very out going person who loves to make things fun for my kids and loves doing things on the spur of the moment. I'm active in my children's lives; whether its helping with Jenna's dance recitals, going with Carter's class on a field trip to the zoo, throwing Blake an "airplane" birthday party and surprising him with a private tour of airplanes., or doing fun activities with my daycare kids. I want to create special moments that they will take with them as they grow older.. I can't wait to make some special memories for our new little daughter that she will carry with her for the rest of her life! My children mean the world to me.. I love spending time listening to them as they share stories from school, cuddling with them, giving them advice when they need it and reminding them of how much I love them. They will always know that I am here for them! They have brought so much joy to my life and I can't wait to share that joy and love with our precious new daughter. She will love being a part of our warm, happy, fun-loving, caring and sometimes crazy family! Thanks for letting us share our family with you~ Lindsay
5: I am so excited about meeting my new little daughter! She will be such a blessing to our family! There are so many reasons that I love being a dad! First of all, I just enjoy being around kids. Whether I'm teaching, coaching, or helping Lindsay with the daycare kids or playing with my own kids I love making kids smile and laugh and showing them that they're important. I am very involved in my children's lives; whether its playing basketball outside, going on bike rides, making smores over our bonfire pit, cuddling up with them and reading a book, going fishing, or watching a movie with the family, I enjoy every minute I spend with them. I promise to be the best dad I can be and to provide for our new daughter in every way possible. I want our children to live happy and exciting lives where they feel secure knowing that their mom and dad love each other and love them! Hope you enjoy the book ~ Brady
