Dear Birth mother,
Thank you for taking the time to get to know us!
We know this must be such a difficult time for you as you try to decide the best plan for you and your precious baby. We first want to tell you we are praying for you and your child. Also, we love you and more importantly, God loves you and values you and your baby! We hope you feel supported throughout your journey, and we are so thankful to you for choosing life and considering adoption.
Know that we would love and cherish your baby. We would do everything in our power to give your baby the best life possible. We would strive to teach them to be disciples and shine for Christ every day.
We are comfortable with and would respect whatever level of openness you want to have with your child. This is the most selfless act anyone could ever do, and we want to honor that.
We are beyond excited about welcoming your baby into our family. We have so much love to give! Prayers for peace and God’s guidance for all of us!
Lee and Becky
Our love story started out as a friendship. We met at Mississippi State and were friends for ten years before realizing the spark and happiness we felt every time we saw each other was more than just a friendship. We then dated for two years before getting married on the beach in Antigua. We have been married for almost seven years. These seven years have been the best years of our lives. We have started a family and have a four-year-old daughter, Lila, and a twenty-two-month-old son, Harry, who can’t wait to get a baby sibling. Being parents is our greatest blessing. Some of our favorite activities to do with one another are going to sporting events, attending concerts, serving in our church community, and going out for a good meal. We truly are best friends and love spending time together.
Lee is the rock of our family. He is our spiritual leader, our favorite chef and the best husband and father in the world. He is the most giving man I have ever met; he always puts others first. He is sensitive, caring and faithful. He is determined and gives everything he does 110%. He embodies a Christ-centered man and remains humble while doing so. Watching him be a father to our children has been such a gift. I know he will be the best Daddy to your child too!
Becky is very charismatic, outgoing, and our family’s biggest cheerleader. She truly roots for me and our kids to be our very best and is our #1 fan. I admire how driven she is to succeed in everything she does; her career, when she volunteers, and most of all being a great parent and spouse. She takes her relationships very seriously and is a fiercely loyal friend. Above all else, I admire her heart to serve God and be a disciple for Christ and the importance she places on showing that to our children. Becky is an incredible partner and mother and has so much love to give and will give that same love to your child.
We live in a one-story home with four bedrooms and two bathrooms. We have an open concept living room and kitchen where we spend most of our time. We love having dance parties in the kitchen while we cook dinner! We have a large screened in porch and a big backyard with a swing set and a lake. Our backyard is so peaceful and perfect for kids to play in.
Our home is in a cozy, quiet cul de sac that is safe for riding bikes and taking walks. We are close to our church, the library and the sports complex where your child could play baseball. We have two very nice public parks close to our home where there are lots of kids to play with. We also live close to many of our friends and Grandparents so there is always fun to be had! We are in a great school district, which would allow your child the best education.
Family is the most important thing to us. Both of our parents are heavily involved in our lives. They are awesome grandparents! Your child would be getting two aunts, three uncles and four cousins. One set of grandparents lives right down the road and the other set visits for week-long trips frequently. Our church home is another big part of our family, and we are there every Wednesday night and Sunday morning. Our family stays busy, and we love spending time together. We enjoy going to Mississippi State sporting events, riding bikes in the neighborhood, having play dates with friends, dance parties, swimming and traveling. Our favorite place to vacation is the beach; we go every summer. We also like to travel to St. Louis to see the Cardinals play and Colorado to visit our family. Another tradition we have is going to Mardi Gras in New Orleans every year; we love the floats, the music and of course the king cake.
Holidays are important in our family because they are a time when we can all gather together. We rotate Thanksgiving and Christmas between both sides of our family every year. Christmas is our favorite holiday. We love decorating our house, listening to Christmas music, baking goodies, looking at lights and attending parties with friends and family. We have a giving manger and focus the season around giving back to others and remembering why we celebrate. It truly is the most wonderful time of the year!
OUR ADOPTION JOURNEY
We feel we have been called by God to adopt. He has blessed us in more ways than we could imagine, and we want to share those blessings with your child. After our daughter, we suffered two miscarriages, and though adoption had been on our hearts, it was solidified during this time. We know God has led us down this path for a reason, and we are trusting in His perfect plan. We hope you will trust Him too!
