"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."
You are brave, courageous, and selfless. We trust you are making this decision because you love your child and want to choose a family who will love him/her for the rest of his/her life.
By choosing us, Glenn and Lauren, as your child's adoptive parents, you are choosing for your child to become part of a family created out of love, respect, faithfulness, trust, honesty, and fun. You are choosing for your child to be raised by two individuals who long to experience the joys (and challenges) of parenting.
You are choosing for your child to grow up in a strong family unit that values living life to the fullest, positivity, adventure, healthy living, being connected to our Denver community, and finding the silver lining in challenging situations. You are choosing for your child to receive the unconditional love of two adorable Bulldogs, to see the tops of Colorado's tallest mountains, to come to love North Carolina basketball and Michigan football, to see how people live in other parts of the world, and to camp out under the stars. You are choosing for your child to laugh every day and to appreciate the small and big blessings in life.
You are choosing for your child to have the immediate love and support of a large, close-knit extended network of family and friends who have prayed for your child to find his or her way into our family. You are choosing for your child to instantly be surrounded by a diverse group of "cousins" – biological and psychological – ready to play and show him or her "the ropes." You are choosing for your child to be raised by open-minded and responsive parents who are committed to supporting who he/she wants to become and the choices he/she makes in life.
Please know how much gratitude 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 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.
