A Letter from Stephen & Mary
Dear Birth Mother,
We are Stephen and Mary and we want to thank you for taking the time to get to know us. We are a Christian family of 3 looking forward to sharing everything with your child- Our lives, our home, our family and our hearts. God has led us to adoption and we look forward to teaching your child everything about life, all about God’s creations and all he’s offered us. We are excited to meet you and learn more about you and your desires for your child. We are open to letters, photos, and visits with you if you choose.
We met on a dating website 7 years ago and have now been happily married for 5 years now. Our relationship is based on love, honesty, laughter, trust and Christian faith. We love the outdoors, going camping, having bonfires, hiking, fishing, swimming, boating, kayaking, travelling, spending time with family, playing board games, watching movies and sports. We enjoy going on spur of the moment trips to anywhere in the United States as a family. Our daughter, Madison, is thrilled to be a big sister. We look forward to growing our family through adoption. We attend church weekly and look forward to raising our child in a Christian community.
Stephen is an Army National Guard Veteran and served 8 years and 1 tore in Iraq. He is very proud to have protected and served his country. He enjoys his work as a tractor trailer and loves to work on cars and be outdoors hiking, boating, water tubing or camping. He is a kind hearted, caring, loving, honest man who has a great sense of humor and loves to make others laugh. He is dedicated to his family and is an amazing father to his 11 year old daughter, Madison. He is looking forward to teaching our next child and sharing with them his knowledge of math, ABC’s, spelling, life, camping, and how to be the best possible person they can be.
Mary is a Program Director for a CDL-A driving school where she teaches others how to drive tractor-trailers. She loves to teach, has a kind heart, and is always there for others. She goes above and beyond for our family and friends and loves spending time with them. She loves to be creative, cook and bake from scratch, make new recipes and work on home improvement projects. Mary is an amazing step-mother to Madison and loves to play with her, do her hair and teach her new things. She is looking forward to sharing her skills in baking, cooking, and building or remodeling with our next child. She looks forward to teaching them their ABC’s, numbers and how to always respect others.
Our daughter, Madison is 11 and enjoys reading, playing the Flute, camping, spending time with her cousins and drawing; she is an amazing artist who one day wishes to become an animator. She is so excited to be a big sister! She looks forward to keeping her sibling safe, loving him or her and looks forward to sharing her art skills and teach them how to read.
We are blessed to have such a huge extended family with happy marriages and kids. Our family lives all over and we all make plans to be together regularly. We all love to go on vacation together, spend a lot of time together, laugh together and enjoy life together. Our family is very supportive of our adoption and they are all thrilled to meet their new great-grandchild, grandchild, cousin, niece or nephew. Your child will be surrounded by so much love from the moment he or she arrives.
Our beautiful 4 bedroom home sits on 7 acres of land, surrounded by trees and a creek. We have a farm next door to us and with the houses spread out, our neighborhood is very peaceful and quiet. We have plenty of space to play games, run, and enjoy nature around our home. Our home has a library, a dining room, a living room, a family room, an office, a finished basement with a play room, a movie theater room, and a spacious kitchen where we spend time creating new recipes and family time together. We have excellent schools around us and huge playgrounds we enjoy going to as a family.
We promise to provide your child with a Christian home full of unconditional love, laughter, and encouragement. We will always be there, care for and listen to them and give him or her every opportunity to be their best self. They will be cherished, protected and provided for. We will share with them everything we know and promise to provide for them financially and educationally. We look forward to an open relationship with you through letters, photos, and visits.
