I am so happy you found our little space on the internet! We cannot even imagine what you must be going through right now, but I’m sure you might be feeling somewhat overwhelmed. The road ahead may seem difficult with a ton of decisions to make. And so many couples may be reaching out to you hoping to gain your attention and sharing all the reasons they would be the perfect parent(s) to your child. I can’t help but imagine that as you look at each couple, you feel those twinges of sadness as you imagine placing your child into someone else’s arms. I can tell you that I do not know the pain you are going through, but as a couple who cannot bear biological children – we recognize your heartache and we are in awe of your strength and love for your child in considering adoption.
We believe that being a parent is the most important job in the world, and it’s a role we don’t take lightly. We have looked forward to having children since before we were married, and we have spent the past five years preparing our home, lives, and hearts for children. Our life has been one of ups and downs. When we first got married we experienced the difficulties of tight finances. But we have come a long way since then and our finances are now solid. We have experienced the hardship of losing everything in a house fire and slowly rebuilding our lives. And over the past five years we have struggled with infertility. I say all of that to tell you this, no matter what life has thrown at us, Ryan and I have remained strong in our love and support of one another… things we promise your child will never be without.
I also want you to know that you will always be an important part of your child’s story. Our journey to grow our family has been filled with prayer, support, and many signs along the way. So much so that it inspired me to start writing the story for our future child to be able to read one day. I want him/her to know how very loved they are now, before they are even in our arms. I want them to know how many people have prayed for them and hoped for them. I want our child to know the amazing amount of love that surrounds them… And that story starts with you and your selfless motherly love.
We are more than happy to answer any question you might have and we would love to get to know you better too. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us & please know that even if we aren’t the right fit for you, we wish you the very best on your journey.
Stephanie & Ryan
