Things we want our Future Birth Parents to know...
Although we have not met you yet, we already feel a closeness to you! We want you to know that we are people who KEEP our promises! We prefer openness in every situation (if possible) and we won't HOLD back from letting you know how we feel. We hope you choose to do the same. Brandon has more of grasp on adoption that i do (being that he is adopted) but, we both equally have a hold on birth parent ?'s and overall adoption culture. We LOVE celebrating everything about adoption and birth parents! Brielle is currently working on a Birthday package for her Birth mother, Kara. She has been making Art and I'm including a few surprises too! She and her Family are part of our family now and forever! You can even call them, if you don't believe us. (I'll email you their numbers:)
We know placement will be so hard and i remember the feelings we had at the hospital and in the placement room over 4.5 years ago. It was terrifying and so Heavenly all at the same time. I felt so undeserving and so elated. We cried for many, many days for Kara and admired her courage and strength to place this tiny infant in our care. Both of us will never forget that day!
Brandon and i balance each other out so well and of course, we don't see eye to eye all the time, but we always work it out! And we grow stronger from our trials! He's my Man and I have so much love for him! He makes me crazy in a GREAT way! And He is a terrific father! Ask anyone who REALLY knows us and they will tell you! I am the luckiest lady ever!
We hope and pray for you and for your future. We hope you strive for only the BEST and never settle! We hope that after placement- we get to see you often! We hope for family events and special occasions together. We also know- you will need time to heal and we won't force you to feel obligated in anyway!
We love the Gospel and live it and are very honest with ourselves and are a bit WILD and Crazy from time to time (all in moral and proper ways:) and love to have fun together! We hope you may see How Much God Loves His Children through this process and How much HE LOVES YOU!
In our family you will be surrounded with loving arms and true personalities. We don't put on a show for anyone- we are just US from the get-go! That's the only way to live! We hope that reading this gives you a better idea of our character and our promises to you about openness.
Thanks for reading this and Enjoy searching for YOUR family - if we are NOT the ones for your child! God will lead you to them!
