BC: THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR CONSIDERING US AND OUR FAMILY
FC: Eric and Kathleen Bors
1: Dear Birthparents, Thank you for taking the time to get to know a little bit about us. We understand that this is one of the most important decisions of your life. We believe you are very courageous for choosing an adoption plan for your child. What we can tell you is that we will love your child unconditionally and forever. We consider ourselves loving and caring people who want nothing more than to share our lives and the love we have for each other with a child. We hope that by reading this you will have a better understanding of who we are and what we believe in. We have been married for 10 years and knew from the start we wanted children to share our life and our dreams with. Eric has been a Deputy Sheriff for 13 years. He loves his work, and feels he's been chosen to help those who may not be able to help themselves. Katy works in the accounting department of an auto parts manufacturing company in Cleveland. She has always been great with children from babysitting her younger brothers, to helping out with her 5 nieces and nephews. These traits confirm in our hearts that we were meant to be parents. We struggled with infertility for 7 years, however our faith in God has shown us that adoption is the path we were meant to take. We both enjoy camping, holiday's with family, movie nights, clam bakes and Lake Erie perch fish frys in the fall. We also love spending time watching our beloved Indians, Browns, Cavs, Buckeyes, and Fighting Irish on game day. Whether going to the game or staying at home with friends and family. Even our family dog Hogan gets into the games. We love playing golf, attending local festivals, and traveling. We love taking one tank trips to see places we've never seen. We are both members of St. Vincent De Paul church, and Eric is a Third degree Knight with the Knights of Columbus. We look forward to welcoming a child into our lives and want you to know that your child(ren) will be loved and treasured every breath of their lives. We are fortunate for everything we have been blessed with and want to share all of it with a child. No matter your decision may God bless you through your journey and we wish you nothing but the best.
2: Our Wedding April 20, 2002
3: Katy on Eric, I am truly blessed to have Eric as a husband. He is the most loving person I know. He treats everyone he knows with the utmost respect and care. He has become a son to my parents and a brother to my brothers. I know he will be a great father, He can not wait to do all the things a father would want to do with their child. He is always the first person to sit on the floor and play with the kids during family events. I knew before we were married he is the person I am meant to be with. There is nothing he wouldn't do for me and I wouldn't do for him. All these things are what make our life happy and our marriage very stable. He is truly a family man, and was born to be a husband and father. | Eric on Katy, Where to begin? There really is not enough room on this page to describe her. When I met Katy I knew that she was the woman I wanted to be with for the rest of my life. I had always dreamed of the perfect proposal so on Christmas Eve with the family tree lit I knelt down on one knee and proposed just before going to midnight mass. It was the perfect start with the perfect woman. Katy is a beautiful person inside and out with a heart of gold. Through the years I have watched my wife with the children in our family and observed just how special she is with them. Katy is one of the most unselfish human beings I have ever known and will make a great mother. Katy always seems to put others first no matter what the occasion. Katy is a great cook, a great listener, and the best wife a guy could ever ask for. Not only is she my wife but my best friend too. When Katy is with me it makes whatever I am doing better. When she walks beside me I am a better man. As the years have gone by I have fallen more and more in love with her. There are so many little traits, and subtleties about Katy that I love I cant begin to list them all. I am the luckiest guy in the world to have such a beautiful, caring, loving wife and cant wait for her to be a mother.
