Lindsay & Erik
RACE OF CHILD INTERESTED IN ADOPTING:
Thank you for taking this time to get to know us. We cannot express how grateful we are and can only imagine the pain you must be experiencing during this confusing and difficult time. We admire you so much for choosing life and considering adoption. We hope you feel the support and love no matter where you are at in your journey.
We promise to always provide emotional, financial, and educational stability for your child. We promise to teach them to be kind, caring, and accepting of others. We will provide a safe, happy home. We will be forever grateful and will always communicate the love you have and always will have for your baby. We know the love you feel for your baby is real and unconditional. This baby is a beautiful gift, and that will never be forgotten.
We could not be happier and more excited that you would consider us to raise your baby. It would be a blessing and an honor to have this responsibility. Thank you with all our hearts.
We met through an online dating website in 2012. We both knew it was something special. We both had dogs at the time, and we knew if they got along, then we were meant to be. We spent the following years enjoying our relationship through travel and meeting each other’s families and friends. We decided to tie the knot in the spring of 2015. Since our marriage, our relationship has only strengthened. We enjoy spending time with our families and friends, and we both have been blessed with great careers. Lindsay is a childcare teacher and has a passion for children. Erik is a sales manager and enjoys his career. Erik is a true leader and enjoys showing others his leadership skills. In our spare time, you can find us sitting around a fire, UTV riding, or playing yard games.
We live in a brand new home with four bedrooms. Our neighborhood is new and continuing to build. We are looking forward to meeting many new families. Our community has several parks and trails to go bike riding and walking on. We are not far from major cities in the area, and this makes it easy to go shopping and out to dinner. We live close to both of our jobs as well as our families. We have a corgi/terrier mix dog named Maggie. She is the most loving dog and a delight to be around. Oftentimes you will find her sunbathing in the driveway or being loved on by a neighbor as the center of attention.
Our Extended Family
We are extremely close to both of our families. They could not be more excited about our adoption journey. Our families mean everything to us. We spend a lot of time together as well as holidays, birthdays, and special occasions.
We live close to where Lindsay grew up, and her parents still live in the area, as well as her brother and his family. Every few years Lindsay’s family takes a vacation to a warm destination, and we have a great time enjoying the sun and sand. Erik’s family is spread out. His parents live about an hour from us, and his brother lives about three hours away. When we get together, we have a great time and enjoy each other’s company. Erik’s parents live on the river, and we enjoy going fishing and boating on the water.
Christmastime is big in both of our families. Lindsay’s family gets together with all her cousins, aunts, and uncles and has a large family Christmas party every year. We are anxious and excited to pass on these traditions and many more to our children.
What Led Us To Adoption
We started our journey to become a family about four years ago. After struggling with infertility, we decided God had other plans for us. We both knew God was leading us toward adoption. We know adoption is the path meant for us because we have so much love and support to give. We know we could provide a little one with a loving, caring home and a life full of love, happiness, and fulfillment. We are excited about the opportunity to enrich our lives as well as the life of a beautiful child!
