Both of us have so much respect for you choosing life and choosing adoption. We hope that whatever choices you face in these days ahead, that you would be filled with peace. We have and will continue to be praying for you. We believe that adoption is God-designed. He has so intentionally, graciously, and lovingly adopted us as his son and daughter. It’s truly miraculous to be knit into a family and we deeply desire to grow our family in this same way.
Brett has a way of meeting people and making them feel comfortable and accepted instantly. He’s discerning and really sees people, listens, and observes, so they feel heard and connected. He is fascinating, intelligent, and bright. Most days I’m learning random new things about people and the world and cycling and silly little animal facts, from Brett. He is constantly discovering and learning. I believe he will be a wonderfully curious and insightful father as he both learns about our child and teaches them the most interesting things about life. No matter what Brett chooses to do, he succeeds and does it to the very best of his ability because he’s determined, disciplined, and committed to anything he sets his heart on. I’m confident he will be the same way as a father. Our child will know without a doubt that they are valuable, loved, important, and can always count on their dad to be there for them through every happy and every heavy season.
Brittany sees everything. As an interior designer, she can see a space for all of its potential and she is very purposeful in the way she designs. Every part has its place, and every place ends up being meaningful and beautiful. I have seen her take an ugly room (that seemed to be a total loss) and turn it into the most extraordinary space. But the best part of this characteristic is that she approaches people with intentionality, as well. She can bring out the very best in you and in me because of her thoughtful, challenging, and helpful words. She is WONDERFUL. It’s easy for me to attribute this word to Britt; she is good and marvelous. I have the honor of being married to her and now I will have the honor of watching her be a mother. I know she will continue to inspire me, and she will inspire our child. She will be a very intentional and loving mother. I am confident of that.
