Dear Loving Mother,

At this time when there are so many unknowns, though we have not met, we already know this about you — you truly are a loving mother!

Before you read about us, our lives, and why we chose adoption, we want you to know, whether you choose us or not, that you are loved, prayed for, and admired. It takes a strong, courageous woman to carry your child, endure the emotional and physical angst, and then offer your child in a selfless act to be raised by another loving family. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!

We also want to thank you for taking the time to view our profile and for considering us to have the privilege of raising your child. Though this short summary just gives you a small glimpse into our lives, we pray that you will begin to see our love for each other, our love for others, and our love for our child that will become a part of our family.

Adoption is our first choice for starting our family. Before we were even married we felt that adoption would be the way we would one day grow our family. For Todd, adoption has been a prominent part of his life. His father, along with an aunt, two cousins, and a nephew were all adopted. His family would not be what it is today if not for the gift of adoption. Chelsey was introduced to the idea of adoption at a young age through families at church. For her, the inclination to personally adopt started around junior high age where she really became open to the idea. Now, after being married four years, we know that the time is right for us to begin our family.

As a couple, we lead an active lifestyle. We are both very involved in different aspects of our local church. We also participate in many other cultural activities such as sporting events, hiking on local trails, concerts, ice skating, and so much more! We have varied interests between the two of us. Todd is a sports fanatic – if it is a sport, chances are he either watches it or plays it! Though Chelsey is also sporty, her main interest is food. She loves to try different new desserts and planning and hosting formal meals through the church.

We are excited to share our passion for God, life, and others with our child. We work hard, but also play hard. It is our main goal that we would teach our child to do the same – to love God and to love others.

If you so choose, we look forward to meeting you and beginning this journey together with you.

With love,
Todd & Chelsey

About Todd


More About Todd

There are so many things I could say about Todd, but perhaps the most important thing to know about him is how loving he is. His love always amazes me, especially in how it shows up in so many of his other character traits. Todd’s love shows through in his patience. He is patient with others, myself included, even when they are being difficult or unloving toward him. In his kindness, Todd’s love is demonstrated. He puts others’ needs and wants before his own and has a heart of generosity and giving. Todd is also one of the most genuine people I know. He truly cares about you and never pretends to be someone or something he is not. He also loves life to the fullest. Whether it’s going to a sporting event, playing a game with the youth group, or even playing me in a game of Madden, he gives it his all. In all these things and abundantly more, Todd demonstrates his love to me and others everyday. These are just a few of the many reasons I am proud to call him my husband.

About Chelsey


More About Chelsey

Chelsey is one of the most kind-hearted people that you will ever meet. Her love and willingness to help wherever needed at church is a constant reminder of why I fell in love with her in the first place. She has a heart to serve God in any capacity that she can; how could I not fall in love with this woman? Her devotion to God and to me brings us closer each day. She is fully supportive as a wife and is an encourager as well. Chelsey also has unique inventiveness in the kitchen from making me small delicious desserts to serving larger meals at church. Chelsey loves to cook and is always up for the challenge to serve others. Lastly, Chelsey is very goal oriented. When Chelsey sets her mind to something, you can guarantee that she will someday hit that goal. This is also another reason why I love my wife so much. Even if it is as little as a small project around the house, Chelsey will get it accomplished and take pride in doing it as well. I am very lucky to have been able to find such a wonderful wife as Chelsey. To be able to have someone by my side day in and day out striving for the same long term goals is such a blessing.
