Dear Expecting Parent(s),

We would like to begin by expressing our admiration for the strength it takes to make the selfless decision on your behalf to consider adoption for your baby.  We would be honored to be considered as a family for your child. It is our hope with this letter to show what life with our family would be like for your baby. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to introduce our family to you.

About Us

Alisha was invited to Dan’s church (by a family member) one beautiful Sunday morning in November 2010. Alisha was seated in a pew near Dan, where we struck up a conversation very easily after the service.  The next week, we went on an impromptu lunch date and never looked back. We found out we had a lot in common and knew from that day forward that we were meant for each other. As our relationship progressed, we became soul mates and best friends.  God blessed us with marriage two years later in the church where we met.

One of the great things about us as a couple is that we have a lot in common and share the same moral values. But we also respect our differences and interests. Dan’s interests are bicycling, landscaping, woodworking, model trains and coin collecting.  Alisha’s interests are crafts, cooking, gardening, boating and fishing. We both enjoy church activities, picnics, festivals, daytrips, vacations, cultural activities, and sporting events (Steelers, Penguins, Pirates). We also enjoy traveling together, as well as going out to share special times with friends and family.

Dan graduated from college with a BS in Accounting and has worked  as an Accounting Coordinator at a manufacturing company for 13 years.  Alisha graduated from college with a BSN RN degree and has worked for a hospital for 18 years as an Intensive Care Nurse.

After being married for about a year, we decided we wanted to start a family.  We found out that the biological journey towards parenthood was not an option for us with two failed IVF procedures.  After much prayerful consideration, we were called to the adoption process and found our way to Bethany Christian Services.

Our Home and Neighborhood
We live in a quiet suburban neighborhood where parks, schools, a library, churches, and stores are conveniently located.  We have family and friends nearby who are willing to help out when necessary.  Our family has strong ties in our church community, which is about a ten minute drive from our home. Our church community is like a family.  We own a single family, 4-bedroom home and have a nice sized back yard with a deck. Our house has a future nursery setup with a crib, changing table, dresser, and a beautiful view of the backyard.  We have a spacious kitchen, where we really enjoy cooking as a family.

Our Values
One of our important family values is uninterrupted family time at the dinner table.  Our other family values include setting a good example to children through our daily actions, incorporating God in our daily lives through prayer and meal blessings, and attending church and Sunday school.

Experiences and opportunities we feel are important to provide a child include a good education, competitive school district academics, team sports and activities, a safe neighborhood, holiday family get-togethers, fun child friendly events (zoo and science center), vacations and, when the child is older, continuing education at a good university.

Our Promise
Thank you again for taking the time to learn about our family and for considering us as a family for your baby. We plan to be very open with your child about how he or she came to be part of our family and that this was made possible because of your courageous and selfless decision. Know that we are open to you being updated on the child’s milestones and that your child will grow up with lots of love and support from us as parents and our extended family.

Should your heart steer you in our direction for an adoptive family, may you find comfort in knowing that your baby will live with laughter and love.

With heartfelt blessings,
Dan and Alisha
