Our names are John and Leigh from Florida and we sincerely thank you for taking the time to get to know us. It takes not only courage, but strength to put the life of another person in front of your own and we truly admire you for making such a brave consideration.
We met at work more than 14 years ago and knew right away that we wanted to spend our lives together. After trying to start a family, we found quickly that natural conception was not an option for us. This led to years of fertility treatments before finally deciding that adoption was the right choice. It was because of the adoption process that we welcomed our amazing baby girl, Lexi, who is now four years old. When we first received the call that she had been born and we were chosen to be her parents, we were not only honored to be entrusted with such a gift, but excited and open to whatever God had in store for us. We were not sure what to expect, but felt an immediate connection and admiration for Lexi’s birthmother. She expressed such unconditional love and a desire for Lexi to live the happiest life possible which made us excited to develop a relationship with her. We speak openly to Lexi of both adoption and her birthmother and have no doubt that Lexi will be proud of where she came from and feel fortunate that so many people love her.
It is now our hope to grow our family by welcoming another baby through adoption again. We cannot possibly understand how you must be feeling, but will offer whatever support you may need during such a difficult time. Please know that we are prepared to give your child a life filled with love and happiness. And while we plan to teach him or her the value of hard work, we also want to instill in them other core values including honesty and the importance of family and faith in Christ. The most important thing to know about us is how much we would love, protect, and cherish a child if given the opportunity. We hope that you consider entrusting us with your child and look forward to getting to know you.
