Dear Birth Mother,
Hello! We are Lindsey, Ernest, Owen, Brendan and Holden, and we thank you for taking the time to get to know our family. As we write this, we understand this is a difficult time in our country. However, we believe there is hope, and we admire you for your bravery and we are deeply humbled by your decision to make an adoption plan for your sweet child. Please know that no matter what you choose, we wish you and your child all the best! Our promise to you is to love your child as part of our family, be there for them and allow them to become the person God intended them to be. We hope our story will help you in making your choice. Adoption is a miracle, just like the birth of your child. We are excited about this journey and bringing another child into our loving and stable family. We look forward to meeting you.
We met backstage at a local music club and began to date shortly after that- we played golf, traveled and listened to a lot of live music! After almost five years, we got married. Children followed shortly after marriage and we now have three sons. Today, we spend as much time as possible together with the three boys, playing sports, listening to music, drawing, doing homework, and playing at the beach! We continue to treat each other with love and respect. We are ready to give our unconditional love to your child and expand our family through the miracle of adoption.
Ernest as described by Lindsey: Ernest is an awesome human being and the best Dad ever! He is an amazing husband and friend. Everyone loves him. We work, play, and laugh together daily. His faith and belief in God and the good he sees in people never ceases to amaze me. He’s compassionate yet strong. He’s loyal and honest. He has the best sense of humor and he makes me and the boys laugh EVERYDAY! I love this man and can’t imagine my life without him. The love we share for each other and our boys is truly a gift.
Lindsey as described by Ernest: Lindsey has a positive, loving energy that draws you in. It’s certainly what drew me in those 17 years ago. She loves her friends and family with all of her being. She is tireless and passionate as a mother, friend and partner. People confide in Lindsey and trust her innately. She has more integrity than anyone I have ever met and she is beautiful inside and out. Her seemingly limitless ability to do so many things for our family all at once continues to amaze me. She loves us with her whole being. Marrying her was the best decision I have ever made in my life.
Owen, Brendan and Holden
Owen is our oldest son and is a fun, active boy. He loves music, sports, and playing with his friends and cousins. He is a big help around the house. Brendan is our middle son and is empathetic, loves school, sports and playing legos. Holden is our youngest and loves to play with his big brothers, Matchbox cars and he loves to dance! All three boys are very excited to welcome a little brother or sister into our family.
Together we enjoy seeing and experiencing new places, people, and things to do! We appreciate the beauty of our world around us, and care deeply about our ocean and our environment. We spend a lot of time at the beach during the summer. We also like to play golf, and watch the boys play team sports! And we enjoy going skiing during the winter. We love spending time with our kids and relaxing with no agenda but JUST HAVE FUN! And we really like cheering for our professional baseball and hockey teams!
We love being Owen, Brendan and Holden’s parents. We have always wanted a big family and we welcome expanding our family through the miracle of adoption. Please know your child will be unconditionally loved as a part of our family. We also understand how important post adoption contact is for your child, so we welcome this discussion with you. We hope this gives you a look into our lives and we look forward to meeting you. Thank you for taking the time to read this. We wish you well and God Bless!
Lindsey & Ernest
