Hello! Our names are Rachel and David. Creating a family through adoption is something we have always talked about. Rachel grew up with adoption. Her older brother was adopted as a baby and they are very close. We also knew that infertility was going to be an issue for us. We have one daughter Emma. She is adopted and we feel that the time is now right to adopt again. We hope to continue to grow our family and welcome another child into our home. Thank you for considering us as adoptive parents.
Rachel grew up in Wisconsin. She loves singing and has a passion for teaching. Rachel works as a part time teacher with urban school children who need extra help in reading and math. If you choose us as adoptive parents, Rachel plans to take at least 6 months off of work to stay at home. From David's Perspective: I have known Rachel for over 10 years. I have seen many qualities that make her a wonderful mother, including her love of helping others. She pours her heart into developing lesson ideas that are useful and fun for her students. The kindness and honesty she shows as a wife and mother has made me into the best man I could ever become. Her gentle and caring heart is something I value as we choose to expand our family. She is an amazing mother. We look forward to continuing this journey of parenthood together.
David grew up in Alabama and is a true "Southern Gentleman". People say David is caring, patient, and kind. He has a stable job as a mortgage underwriter at a bank. David is respected for his strong work ethic and is proud to help support our family. From Rachel's Perspective: David is my best friend and support in all situations. Together we celebrate joys and problem-solve through challenges. His kind, honest, and fun-loving spirit makes him an amazing dad. He is a father involved in all parts of raising a child. David shows compassion and patience when listening to people. His quickness to hold a door open or lend a helping hand leads people around him to feel at ease. David's welcoming and joyful personality attracted me to him...as well as his beautiful singing voice! Children quickly relate to David and his playful spirit. He easily makes kids laugh, and his bear hugs bring a true sense of comfort and security. I am so proud to call him my husband. We can't wait to welcome another child into our family together.
