Dear BirthParent,

Thank you for taking the time to consider out family! We admire your courage and wish you the best! We are Chad and Val. We met in 2004 through mutual friends and were married two years later. We tried to get pregnant for many years, with and without fertility assistance, before we decided that adoption was right for us.

The basis of our marriage is communication; resulting in a foundation of honesty and trust into which we would like to welcome you and your child. We love our life together but feel unfulfilled as a family without having children of our own. We have strong ties to family, friends, and community; with plenty of room in our hearts for kids! We belong to a Lutheran Church that Chad has gone to for his entire life, and Val grew up with both Methodist and Lutheran religions.

We love animals and nature, and have two dogs which are basically our kids right now! We enjoy time with family and long-time friends. Val’s three siblings are frequently at our home and we are within walking distance of Val’s parents and grandmother.

Values we can offer as parents are: spiritual faith, spending time with family, giving back to the community, respecting animals and nature, learning and education, and allowing kids flexibility based on their personality and interests.

We look forward to meeting you!
