FC: Darrin & Jackie | O U R S T O R Y | Hello, we are Darrin & Jackie from Chesley. Thank you for choosing to learn more about us.We know you must have so many questions while you try and find the family for your child. We will hopefully provide you with information on us and what your child's life would be like if you choose us as adoptive parents. We have always discussed adoption. Initially due to fertility issues it was our only hope for a family. Recently we were blessed with a pregnancy of our own. We still hope to further enrich our family through adoption. Darrin & I are both blessed with supportive family members whom also long to share their love with our future family member. Your child would be a loved and cherished addition to our family.
1: Dear Birth Parent (s) | We realize that this is a very difficult and emotional time in your life. We admire your choice and courage. We have always known that we wanted to be parents and are excited about having the opportunity to grow our family through adoption. As we are creating our profile our hope is to ease some of the weight that is resting on your shoulders. We want you to know that if you choose us to be your child's adoptive parents, we will give your child everything we have.
