Bob & Tammy
First and foremost, we want you to know that our hearts go out to you. We can only imagine how difficult this decision is. We truly believe that making an adoption plan is the most loving and compassionate thing someone can do. We cannot express our gratefulness to you enough. Thank you for choosing life and taking the time to learn more about us. We are incredibly honored for you to consider us.
We met in 2003 while “speed dating!” We prayed that we would meet someone with the same values, beliefs and desire to start a family. We married in 2005 on the beautiful US Virgin Island of St. Thomas. We immediately wanted a baby–a honeymoon baby! After some help from infertility doctors, two years and 1 day after we were married, our son Andrew was born. We are incredibly blessed and he has brought us so much joy. We absolutely love being parents and always wanted more children. We went back to doctors for more “help” when Drew was 18 months old. We though, “let’s just do what we did the last time.” It didn’t work like we thought. Months turned into years of hoping and praying for another baby. It was heartbreaking and many tears were shed. However, in all that time, we kept thinking, with the path of adoption, there is a baby! No more going through doctors, treatments and false hope. We truly believed with all our hearts that adoption was our hope-filled option.
Our promise to you is that your child will always feel loved and secure in our home and grow up in an environment where a reflection of love and kindness in daily living and education and exploration of the world will be greatly encouraged and supported. You as the birthmother and birthfather will always be honored, respected and spoken of joyfully in our home. We promise to give our unconditional love to your child and they will always know of the unconditional love you have for them.
We’ve often heard, and now understand–and agree–that being good parents are among the hardest jobs in the world. There are no “days off” and there are good days and bad days…but at the end of each day, we know that we are molding, forming and building a foundation for a strong, bright and promising future. By sharing our love, encouraging their curiosity of the world, and guiding them towards the right path, we can make a difference in the life of your child.
May God give you peace and serenity throughout this journey and in making your decision.
Our most sincere and warmest regards,
Tammy and Bob
