Dear Expectant Parent,
We are Deanna and Michael (Mike) and we live in Missouri. We are grateful to you for taking the time to learn more about us and for your tremendous courage in making an adoption plan for your baby. We want you to know that in our family, your baby will always be safe and loved, and will always know how much you loved him or her.
We would very much want you to be a part of your child’s life through letters and visits. We are very committed to an open adoption and hope you will feel the same way.
Our journey together began several years ago when we met while doing charity After a few months of dating we just knew we couldn’t live without each other! We have always wanted to have a family of our own and felt we had so much love to share. After finding out we couldn’t have children, adoption brought the hope of growing our family back to us and in December of 2014 we adopted a wonderful baby boy. We hope to grow our family again through adoption.
Our home is located in a tranquil neighborhood and we have a beautiful yard. The neighborhood has many wonderful restaurants, parks, shops and schools. There are always new things to see, do and try and that is a big part of the reason we love living here. We have two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Tahoe and Henry, who are both loving and playful. We also love to travel and explore new places.
We both came from loving families and have very close and strong relationships with our parents and siblings. We both also have large extended families that are very close and get together regularly for family celebrations.
Our family and friends are very dear to us. We believe that as parents the most important thing we can do is provide a safe and loving environment that will allow a child to discover his or her own strengths, interests and gifts. Growing up, our families taught us that love is unconditional, and we want to share that gift with our children. We value education and believe children should be encouraged to be open, inquisitive and creative.
Hopefully, this book will help give you a better understanding of who we are
