Hello - we are Martin and Allison! Thank you for visiting our profile. We would love to be considered as caring parents for your child and appreciate you taking this time to get to know our family.

Our story began at a wine festival. By chance, we sat down on a hill to sip wine next to each other and began talking. From there, we began to go on fun dates throughout the DC area such as Washington Nationals games, golfing, dining out at new restaurants, and spending long weekends at the beach.

In 2012, we were engaged and lived together with Allison’s dachshund, Strider. In 2013, we were married at a local golf course with family and good friends in attendance. We even had one of our closest friends officiate the ceremony and had quite the dance party at the reception!

In 2015, our daughter, Marissa, was born. She is our pride and joy and we couldn’t love her more! Two years after Marissa was born, we moved to our current home, located within a family-focused neighborhood. We see family more often and love hosting at our home!

We feel now is the perfect time for our family of three to grow. Adoption is very important within our immediate family, as you will see later in our letters and journal, and has always been a journey we have considered taking.

FAQ’s about placing a baby for Adoption

I'm considering giving my baby up for adoption. How much does that cost?

It won't cost you anything. If you choose to place your baby for adoption, all of your medical and legal fees will be covered and you may be eligible for financial assistance with other pregnancy-related expenses.

I'm experiencing an unplanned pregnancy and don't know who the birth father is. Can I still place my baby for adoption?

Yes. Even if you don’t know the identity of the birth father, you can still choose to make an adoption plan. However, every adoption situation is different. The adoption social worker you’re assigned to will get to know you and your story first, and then guide you through the process accordingly.

When is the right time to talk with an adoption professional?

You can make an adoption plan at any point in your pregnancy, even after the baby has been born. But, it's important to start the process as early in your pregnancy as possible. Connecting with those resources will allow you to gain access to important medical services, including prenatal care, to help ensure a healthy pregnancy.

When I create an adoption plan, will I get to choose who is in the room with me during delivery?

One aspect of your adoption plan is the "Hospital Plan" an outline of how you'd like your hospital stay and delivery to go. You can craft this on your own or with the help of your adoption social worker. But everything is up to you. You’ll be able to choose who comes to the hospital with you, who is in the room with you during delivery, and how much time you’d like to spend with the baby before signing the final papers.

How much contact will I have with the adoptive family after I place my baby with them?

As part of your adoption plan, you'll determine whether or not you’d like to have an open or closed adoption or something in between. Open adoptions may include phone calls, messaging (via social media, email, or text), and/or periodic visits each year. Closed adoptions may include no contact at all or annual updates provided to the birth parent(s) by the adoptive family. Each post-adoption relationship is different and can vary based on what an expectant mother chooses in her adoption plan.
