“Being a family means you are part of something very wonderful. It means you will love and be loved for the rest of your life… no matter what.”
We want to start by recognizing your bravery and courage. We fully trust that you are making this decision because you love your child and want to choose a family who will love them as much as you do. As such, we want you to know what it would mean for you to choose us, Glenn and Lauren, as your child’s adoptive parents.
We have created our family based on love, respect, honesty, faithfulness, trust, and adventure. In our eyes, you and your child are an extension of our family — regardless of the level of involvement you wish to have. Therefore, we will bring these same qualities to our relationship with you and your child.
We long to experience the joys (and challenges) of parenting. We are committed to being open-minded and responsive parents, supporting your child in becoming who they want to be and in making the best choices for their life.
By choosing us, your child will grow up in a strong family unit that values living life to the fullest, positivity, adventure, healthy living, being connected to our community, and finding the silver lining in challenging situations. Your child will be unconditionally loved by us and our bulldog, will laugh daily even when life feels hard, will see the tops of Colorado’s tallest mountains, will cheer with us for our favorite sports teams, will see how people live in other parts of the world, and will camp out under the stars.
Your child will also be immediately wrapped in love and support from our large, close-knit extended network of family and friends, who have prayed for your child to find his or her way into our family. This network includes a diverse group of “cousins” – biological and psychological – ready to dote on and play with him or her.
Please know how much respect we have for you as you consider whether to choose us for this important role, which will make you and your child part of our family forever. We have lived such a fulfilling life thus far and yet we believe that the gift of becoming your child’s parents would provide us with a joy that cannot be found anywhere else.
