Building Our Family Through Adoption

Our Letter To You

Dear Friend,

We appreciate you taking the time to learn about & consider us as you selflessly consider adoption for your child.

Our hope is that you will get a sense of the love we have for one another, our families & friends, & our future child. We are beyond excited to welcome a child into our home & family.

We have always desired to have children both through natural conception and adoption. We decided to begin our journey to parenthood through natural conception, but were met with challenges. After 3 years of unsuccessful fertility treatments, we decided to take steps towards becoming foster/adoptive parents in hopes of building our family. In December 2016 we welcomed a 12 month old boy into our home. He was with us for 10 months and then went to live with his grandma. Although we were unable to adopt him we are blessed that he is still actively involved in our lives. Our desire to be parents continues to motivate and encourage us forward.

Our fostering experience was both wonderful and heartbreaking, as it did not end in a permanent placement. This experience showed us that, emotionally, we could no longer emotionally pursue the foster care system- so we decided to come here. We are both hopeful and excited to welcome a child into our home and hearts through adoption.

It is our hope that as you consider adoption, that you will be able to find peace in the decision that you make. We want you to know that we are open to having the type of relationship that makes you most comfortable, whether that is open, semi-open, or closed. We believe that is your decision to make. We also would like you to know that we cannot begin to imagine what a difficult decision this must be, and we want to wish you all the strength, courage, and hope as you go through this process.

Best, Michelle & Brent

Our Parenting Style

Prior to pursuing adoption we became certified as foster/adoptive parents in hopes of building our family. As part of becoming foster

parents we had the opportunity to gain training specific to foster care/adoption and parenting as well as hands on experience.

Our friends tell us we have an abundance of love in our personalities and skills to share with a child. Although we were unable to find a permanent placement through the foster care system, we loved every minute of being foster parents. This experience affirmed to us that adoption is the right path for us! We feel the hallmarks of parenting are healthy role-modeling, listening, and being honest, loving, and respectful.

Our Story

Our Story

ABOUT US

We were both born and raised in Central New York- Brent in the country & Michelle in the suburbs.

We first met 9 years ago when we were introduced by Michelle’s sister. Although our journey began as friends it wasn’t long before we started dating. We quickly learned how much we had in common and knew we were meant to be together.

After 2 years of dating, Brent proposed and we were married on June 7, 2014. Our desire to expand our family comes from our deep love of growing up with a household of siblings. We are so exited & ready to welcome a child into ours!

OUR HOME

OUR NURSERY

OUR FAMILY

Family plays an important role in our lives. Whether we are having a BBQ in the backyard, hanging out at Michelle’s parent’s pool, taking day trips, or spending the holidays together- we love it all! We have lots of family traditions we are excited to share and expand upon with our future child!

OUR PETS

Kia is our adorable 14 year old westie who is still young and playful at heart. She can often be found digging in the sandbox in our backyard or helping Michelle garden. She is great with kids and loves when our nieces and nephews come over to play.

Our Home

We live in a quiet & safe neighborhood in Central New York. We purchased our home over 5 years ago and have enjoyed renovating it ever since. It is a warm & cozy space both inside & out. We have a large fenced in backyard with a swing set, large sand box, and lots of room to run and play.

Friends and family are always welcome and we love hosting get togethers and holidays throughout the year. We are excited to share our love of the outdoors & time with family with our future child.

Our neighborhood is peaceful and child-friendly with a park and playground we walk to often. Our community has many local libraries, parks, beaches, a splash park, and other child friendly activities such as museums, local bounce houses, and zoos.
