I’d imagine one of the questions a prospective birth mother considers in her decision making process is “Why does this couple want to adopt?” I thought I’d take a moment to share a little bit about our answer to this important question.
As our profile states, Jon and I had always planned to adopt after we were married. We longed to provide a home for a child or children who needed two loving parents. We discovered seven years into our marriage, that we were unable to have biological children. This lead us to our adoption journey more quickly than we had originally planned.
We have been very blessed to grow our family three times by adoption! We dearly love each of our child’s birth families. We openly discuss and share about adoption and birth families on a regular basis. We have varying levels of openess with our children’s birth families based on their circumstances. This ranges from completely open with visits to semi-open with letters and pictures regularly sent. We truly see our children’s birth families as a wonderful opportunity for our children to be surrounded by more people who love them!
We love our children more than anything, but we have felt like our family is not yet complete! We’d always hoped to have a large family of 4+ children. We believe that each one of our children can change the world! We want to raise them to be people of character who love God and want to make the world a better place. We are thankful that we can provide a model of a two parent household when so many children are not given this opportunity in our culture. We love that our kids will always have each other to lean on and relate to. They can share their feelings surrounding adoption and know that they have someone by their side who truly understands! We have always desired to have a diverse family and are specifically seeking this out with this adoption. We are intentional about living in a diverse area, being in community with people from a variety of racial backgrounds, and attend a diverse church.
We know there are so many amazing families out there to consider for an adoption plan! We see ourselves as one of those families. Our family is able to pour into another child and provide a great sense of community with multiple siblings! We are thankful to be considered in your adoption plans and hope to complete our family photo soon!
