Hello, we are Morgan and Whitney! You are doing the most selfless thing a mother could do, and we empathize with the decision you are making. We hope this snapshot of our family gives you comfort and that you think we are a great match. If you select us, we promise to unconditionally love, nurture, and support your child as he or she explores the world. Their life with us would involve laughter, dance parties, game nights, trying new things as a family, and plenty of heartfelt conversations.
As told by Morgan: Whitney, is an only child that was born and raised in Virginia. She is from a small town, where she grew up with most of her family only living a short drive away, and some right next door. She’s told me stories of weekend sleepovers with her great-grandmother, and riding on her grandfather’s lap, while he cut the grass. I love to hear her talk about her family and watch her face light up as the memories come back. My wife is the strongest person I know. She works full time in a thankless job, comes home and cares for our family, never showing when a bad day has beaten her down. She can walk into our house when the dogs have torn something apart and sit on the floor to love them, unconditionally, even though she knows there is a mess to clean, never raising her voice or showing anger. It’s not just compassion to our family, it’s everyone. Whitney introduced me to buying for families in need at Christmas and dropping off blankets to the homeless. If you trusted us to raise your child, I can promise my wife would be your child’s biggest cheerleader, encouraging them to learn, try new things, be silly, and to make mistakes, but most of all, she would protect and love them, forever.
As told by Whitney: Morgan has many amazing qualities that make him a wonderful husband and will make him and incredible dad. He is so goofy (dad-jokes are on point), and he makes me laugh every single day. He will no doubt make our future children laugh (and roll their eyes with embarrassment when they are older). Morgan listens to my thoughts and feelings, makes me feel safe and loved, recognizes when I am upset or stressed, and knows just how to make me feel better. His kindness is demonstrated in the way he treats others, and I trust him completely. He always looks at life as if he is “walking in the other’s shoes”, and tries to fully understand all perspectives before acting, and has never been too proud to not apologize when he was wrong. The thing that amazes me most though is his ability to manage stress and compartmentalize daily struggles. My husband is also one of the most lighthearted people I have ever met and I can promise you from the Dad jokes he already like to use to his love of games and nights at home, he will happily trade adult board games for cartoons, tea parties, or trucks. Morgan will love your child unconditionally, and will be by their side through any of life’s hurdles, always showing them love and protection. He is the perfect teammate to navigate life with, and will no doubt be an amazing father.
