Hello!

Dear Expectant Mom, thank you for choosing life for your child. You are so brave and for that we are grateful for the opportunity to be considered to be your child's parents. We are unable to have our own children and have wanted to build a family, and would welcome the chance to have your child in our home! We have two empty bedrooms, a large home and plenty of resources and experiences to offer a child that will help them grow into who they are meant to be. We want to see this child thrive and flourish as I am sure you would as well and commit ourselves to help make that possible. We promise to love and cherish your child for all the days to come.

My philosophy on parenting is...

Guide them to find and become who God made them to be! Help them uncover who they uniquely are and their gifts to contribute to the world. Support them through the good and bad. Give them the wisdom, tools, and resources to provide for themselves physically, emotionally and financially and be happy and healthy adults that make good decisions.

My neighborhood is a good place to raise a family because…

We have different aged children all around us and they actually play outside all the time vs being cooped up inside on TV or video games. They are all normal good kids! We also have younger couples building families.

-Nick

We are the best choice because…

We are older and have more life experiences which give us wisdom. We have financial security and strong careers. We have an established home and life that a child could easily fit into. We are both faithful, committed and genuine people that want the best for our children and each other.

-Katie

If I could change one thing about the World, it would be...

Make it a kinder and more empathetic place. People have become too self focused and don't look out for one another. We believe in service and reaching out to others; caring about people beyond ourselves.

-Katie

My best friend would describe me as...

A great listener and wise confidante.

-Katie

Favorite season and why?

Favorite season and why?

Spring! Blossoming trees and new life give me hope.

-Katie

What is the best word to describe our family?

Simple. We like to enjoy everyday joys of being home like good home cooked meals, spending time together, reading books, creative pursuits, going to museums, taking walks in nearby parks, playing tennis and ping pong, enjoying our beautiful garden, and snuggling on the couch in the evenings

A hug daily!
