Length of marriage:
We have a spacious room ready & waiting for a little angel. We purchased a new condo in the Bucktown neighborhood to prepare for his/her arrival. There are several families w/ young children on our block. We are a quick walk to the beautiful 606 trail: a great place to spend the day w/ family & get some exercise. Also, Kalee’s family is just a short drive away from us! Her parents are more excited about this than we can express!!
Number of children:
We currently have no children, but cannot wait to change that.
We have one small dog named Mia who is great with kids!
What open adoption means to you/desired contact with a birth family:
We cannot pretend to understand what a birthmother is going through, but we are unbelievably grateful that we were brought together. We are adopting a child and we couldn’t do it without the birth family, so we want them to know they are a part of this and we want this child’s growth and love to be enjoyed by all of us.
In one sentence, why do you want to adopt a child?
We are all God’s children and that immense love he gives us we want to give to a child.
