1: Thank you for taking time to learn a little bit about us. We can't begin to imagine the emotions you are feeling and the journey you have been on that has brought you to today. We certainly believe that along the way you gained the strength needed to make this remarkable decision for your child. From the day that we were married we couldn’t wait to become parents. After struggling with infertility we are thankful for the precious gift of adoption to start our family. We look forward to the day we can bring a child home. There is nothing more important in the world to us than connecting with a birth parent like you who will entrust us to raise and care for a child. We are very excited about adding a blessing to our family through the miracle of adoption.
