Inquire About This Family

Dear Expecting Birth Mother,

Thank you so much for giving us this opportunity to introduce ourselves to you. We are grateful that you love your unborn child so much that you are considering an adoption plan for him or her.

We have known adoption is something we both wanted even before we got married.  God has recently spoken to us that it is time for us to pursue adoption and grow our family.  We have been married for four years and both love the career paths we have chosen. We are a part of an awesome church family and have the best and most supportive group of friends and family. We know that it is in God's plan for our lives for us to adopt, and we are excited to meet the child and family He has chosen for us.

We want you to know that we want to include you in your child's future if you so desire. We will always let your child know what special people his/her birthparents are. Most importantly we want you to know that we will love your child unconditionally and we will devote our lives to providing him or her with all the life security and joy we can offer. This child will be loved beyond words by our family, by our friends and he or she will always know the great love you have for them.

We have been married for four years. We got married in our late twenties and were very established as individuals but as soon as we met we knew we were made for each other. We are very similar yet so different but we make the perfect team. We enjoy life together and are best friends! Derrek is a civil engineer and Amy is a high school math teacher. We are very grateful that Amy will be able to stay home with our children during the summer months as well school vacations/holidays. Our religious beliefs are very important to us. We invest and spend a lot of time at our church and reaching out to the surrounding community, especially on the weekends. Derrek is on staff and is the church Media Director and Amy is the Nursery Director. We are blessed with a loving church family that will work alongside of us and help keep us accountable in raising our children to serve the Lord.

We love our family and we are very grateful for the close relationships we share with each of our family members. Derrek has a brother that is 9 years younger. Amy is a middle child with a married older sister (three kids) and a younger sister. Both of our parents live out of town and we visit with them often and they come to visit with us too. We are privileged to vacation with our family. We always enjoy new experiences together and spending quality time together as a family. Your child will be welcomed with open arms.

Again, we are excited at the opportunity to grow our family through adoption.  We both had great experiences growing up such as family vacations, spending quality time together as a family at parks, pools, sporting events and even hanging around the house together. We cannot wait to share some of those same experiences with our future children. We were both raised in strong and loving Christian homes and we hope to instill those same principles in our children and provide a good stable Christian home.

We understand this is a special time in your life and we want to be there to support you. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us and God bless you.

Warm Wishes,
Derrek and Amy
