Thank you for taking the time to consider us. We are so excited to be adopting a little one, and we can’t wait to become parents. Before we even got married, we discussed how important family was to both of us. Now that we have been married for a few years, we’re ready to start our family. Luckily for us, God’s plan for us included adoption. So, while we have an amazing life, we’re ready to add to our family and become parents. We are ecstatic to take family trips to the beach, camp, go on hikes together, and have competitive game nights.
Open Arms – Open Hearts
We believe an open adoption is very beneficial for the child, birth family, and adoptive family. We’re comfortable having an open adoption which includes texting/calling/video chat, social media, email, and visits.
We both grew up with parents who exemplified a loving, balanced, committed, and exhilarating marriage. When we are both at home, we naturally find ourselves in each other’s company. Our favorite things to do in our downtime are to travel, camp and explore in nature, challenge each other in board games and puzzles, and get cozy with our cat on the couch to watch a movie and snack on Peanut M&Ms.
About Mark – By Abigail
On our very first date to a college baseball game, I could already tell Mark was different than all of the other guys I had ever met. Despite being confident and intelligent, Mark is down-to-earth and caring.
He has this fierce desire to take care of others, often putting the needs of others before his own. Even on our first date, he gave me his jacket as I had forgotten to bring one. Ever since then, he has been taking care of me by helping with chores around the house and making sure my needs are met.
Mark also has this child-like quality which leads him to plan fun adventures and trips for us to go on. He loves to travel and explore new parts of the world, try new things and kinds of food, and meet different types of people.
However, two of the most attractive qualities I recognized in Mark when we were dating is his passion to serve God and start a family. Because of his Christian beliefs, he will make the best father by putting our family first, making sure to take care of our needs, and also cultivate good relationships with our children.
About Abigail – By Mark
Perhaps the most defining trait that Abigail has is that she is a genuinely caring person who never gives less than 100% effort into anything she commits to. While most reserved in public, she is the life of the party around close friends, always making everyone feel welcome with her warm personality and rambunctious laughter.
One of the most attractive qualities of Abigail’s personality is her kind and compassionate spirit towards any person or animal that is suffering. Loyal to a fault, she is fiercely dedicated to those she counts as friends and family.
When she is not working as a substitute teacher at an elementary school or nursery, she can be found bundled up on the couch with our cat while planning our next trip or watching her favorite BBC shows. While she loves to travel to new places and discover new things, I have observed that she is happiest when she is simply enjoying the company of family and close friends.
I am confident that, true to her nature, Abigail will be the most dedicated and loving mother that any child could ever wish to have.
We live at the end of a cozy cul-de-sac in a quaint English village. Our house is spacious with three bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms. There is a playhouse and swing set in our backyard, which looks out upon a picturesque field. Down the street is an amazing and beautiful county park with ponds and tons of walking paths.
We want to say thank you. Thank you for giving your child the gift of life and giving us the opportunity to be a part of it.
In turn, we promise to:
• love them unconditionally
• bandage every wound – both physical and emotional
• help them fulfill their dreams and goals
• provide them with the best education
• show them how to treat others with respect to every race, origin, or religion
• help them know and understand the tremendous sacrifice
you made out of love
In us, they will always have parents, a should to cry on, someone to lean on, and someone who will always support them.
