1: Dear Birth Family; First of all, thank you so much for your selfless gift in giving your child life. We are so proud of you for taking that first step in your decision making process for your precious child. God has a perfect plan for the child you carry and we know this will indeed be a journey that you will never forget. As you make strides to picking the family that you believe will provide the loving, nurturing environment you desire for your precious gift, we pray for peace that is undeniable. For comfort for you as you go through the next days, weeks, or months, and a love that only the Lord himself can provide to you during this time. We want you to know that our home is full of peace, laughter, and the unconditional love of Christ. Our family believes, not only in living day to day to help each other, but in giving back to our community in ways that literally mimic the heartbeat of Christ. We have a lot of fun together and enjoy each other's company very much. If you come to a decision to choose our family to not only parent your child, but to become an intricate part of your life as well, we promise to offer stability. Emotionally, financially, and most importantly Spiritually. We will work with all that is within us to make sure that your child is offered the best opportunities in education and whatever sports, music, or other avenues they wish to pursue.We hold true to the fact that we as Christians are called to adoption. We were adopted through Jesus' death on the cross into a "forever" family like no other. We believe that this is the perfect portrayal of adoption. We are unable to have any more children biologically so we believe that the Lord has lead us to expand our family through adoption. | We look forward to meeting you and answering any further questions that you may have about our family. Until then, may God give you peace and certainty as you make the decision for your child on their "forever" family. In Him, Kraig, Amanda, Emalee, and Kealyn
