Dear Birth Parent,
Thank you so much for considering us as adoptive parents for your baby. We admire you for making such a loving and brave choice for the child you carry. We are excited to complete our family through adoption.
Our names are Joel and Bradi. We have been married for eight years. We have a 7 year-old son, named Caleb. After having Caleb prematurely, we are no longer able to have more children biologically. We know, in our hearts, that we are meant to complete our family through adoption. We can’t wait to have another member of our family! Our entire extended family is thrilled at the thought of having another little member of our family!
Says Joel of Bradi:
Bradi is a First Grade Teacher. She has been teaching for 18 years. Working with children and helping them grow and succeed has always been her passion in life. She feels so blessed to have a job in which she gets to nurture children as they learn to read, write, problem solve and become life-long learners. Her job also allows for her to stay home in the summer and be a stay-at-home Mommy to spend that quality time with Caleb, and eventually a new baby. I often come home and find her singing and dancing around the living room with Caleb. She loves to be fun and silly with him.
Says Bradi of Joel:
Joel is an Architectural Drafter. He designs churches and schools. He loves designing and keeping busy. His talents as a drafter relate to Fatherhood as well. He is constantly playing with Caleb and showing him how things work. He is a great dad who spends an immense amount of quality time with his son. He is hardworking and loyal. He provides so much for our family. He is always asking how he can help me around the house. He loves to create and build furniture.
Caleb is a kind, funny, healthy and smart boy. He loves to keep busy by playing legos or superheroes, reading or being outside. Caleb is in Second Grade. He attends the school at which Bradi teaches. Caleb is thrilled at the thought of becoming a big brother! Caleb asks daily when the new baby is coming!
Millie is our family dog. She is a kelpie/min pin mix who brings so much love and energy to our lives. She is a great playmate to Caleb. She loves him so much.
As a family, we enjoy spending time together. We love to go for walks to the park as well as play and watch sports. We have quite the baseball rivalry in our house, so baseball season is extra fun! We treasure time with our extended family. We often travel to Montana and California to spend time with them. We are blessed to have Joel’s parents nearby. Caleb was lucky to attend his own Grandmother’s Preschool from the time he was 2 years old!
Our entire family is praying for you and the decision you are making. We hold you in the highest esteem for considering to place your child in a loving home. Should you choose us, we will honor you by raising this child to become a loving, compassionate, brave person. He or she will be raised in a Christian home. Our faith is the center of our lives. We believe that God has a plan for our lives and will raise our child to know and love Him. We will continue to pray for you daily before and after the birth. This sweet child will be loved immensely by us, and our entire extended family.
With Love and Many Prayers,
Joel, Bradi, Caleb and Millie
