Dear Expectant Parent(s):
Although you do not know us just yet, we want you to know we have been praying for you and this journey you are on. We pray you have a sense of peace as you make this monumental decision and the strength to choose the best path for you and your family. God has led us to this journey of adoption and we hope you will consider becoming a part of our family. Here’s a little bit about ourselves:
We are Mike and Brooke. We met through mutual friends and family about nine years ago and hit it off right away. We dated for three years and decided to get married and spend the rest of our lives together. From there, we moved into our first home together and started our journey as husband and wife. We’ve been married for six years and started trying to expand our family about two years ago. After making the decision to not try IVF, we knew God was working within us. We now know He was leading us to adoption and where we are today.
About Mike (by Brooke)
Mike works for a large financial firm in their Information Technology department. He supports the systems used by the company to help keep everything running smoothly and efficiently. Mike is an outgoing, funny, and supportive husband and friend. He will bend over backwards to help those in need and doesn’t look for anything in return. Mike is one of the most loyal, trusting, and honest people I know. He supports me, gives me motivation to be my best self and believes in me. He is the rock in this family and has created a strong, stable life for us. Mike’s loving and caring nature will make him a wonderful father to our children.
About Brooke (by Mike)
Brooke used to be an Early Childhood Education teacher where she taught children ages three to five years old. Now, she works as an Optometric Technician where she screens patients before they see the doctor. Brooke may be small in stature, but she has more love to give than anyone I’ve ever met. She loves being around children and truly enjoys helping them learn and grow. Brooke has a great sense of humor and is always genuine in everything she does. She is a great listener and is always willing to give advice when asked. Brooke’s kindheartedness and endless compassion for others will make her a wonderful mother to our children.
We also have one other family member and he is our loving and energetic miniature schnauzer named Tank. He is two and a half years old and he is a character. He loves playing fetch with all of his toys and loves to hang out with the neighbor dogs outside. Tank loves to snuggle with us and give us kisses. He’s going to be a caring and protective big brother!
Thank you for taking the time to consider us as you make this decision for you and your family. We hope to meet you one day and please know we are praying for you no matter your decision.
