We are so honored you are taking the time to read our profile and considering us as potential adoptive parents for your precious baby. We first want to say we have all the respect and admiration in the world for you and the decision you are considering. Deciding what is best for you and your baby is the most selfless act of love, and we can’t imagine all the emotions you are feeling. We have spent many hours thinking about you and the choice you’re contemplating, and we truly are in awe of your bravery.
We know we can’t fully relate to or understand all the emotions and thoughts you are feeling. We do, however, feel kinship to you and your situation. Our journey did not go as planned, and we know this is not the journey you envisioned for yourself or your cherished baby either. We know not having the pregnancy journey you wanted and deserved is very difficult on the soul. This is why we don’t take any of this lightly, and regardless of the decision you make, we will have nothing but love and respect for you and your baby.
Victor works as a manager for a team of project managers and spends his free time turning the house into the smart home of the future and taking care of the lawn. Stacia used to be in banking and is now a stay-at-home mom to our son, Alaric. He is two years old and brimming with love. We can’t wait to see the special bond he will have with his new sibling! Stacia enjoys embracing her creative side by making crafts and sewing clothes. Together we enjoy listening to music and attending concerts and symphonies. When we first met, we had an immediate connection. Although neither of us believed in love at first sight, we found ourselves living it. The more we got to know each other, the deeper in love we fell. That relationship continues to grow and deepen to this day.
We live in a four-bedroom home in Tennessee. We built the home for the family we knew we wanted. We have two dogs: Ruger, a great Dane, and Ryman, a beagle/terrier. Both are well-trained and accustomed to young children, and they love cuddling. We live in one of the top school districts in the state and are close enough to visit the big city when we want but far enough away to enjoy more open spaces. Our home is on a cul-de-sac with plenty of young children who play in the summer sun. We enjoy neighborhood cookouts and hanging out by the campfire. We love being outside tending to the garden, cuddling on the hammock, or playing in the sandbox.
Our Extended Family
Stacia’s parents, grandparents, brother, and sister all live nearby and meet up with us fairly regularly. Victor’s parents live out of state but recently bought a home nearby and will soon be retiring in the area. Victor’s brother and sister each live in different states and visit occasionally.
We usually have family dinners once a month with one family or the other. We spend time together at one of our homes and usually relax on the porch with the dogs playing in the yard. On holidays, we will make our meals and share together. We make ham and mac ’n’ cheese, Stacia’s dad makes the turkey, and her grandmother bakes fresh bread.
We usually see extended family during family reunions, which Victor’s family has been having every two years since 1998. The location moves around since family members are spread out, but it is a fun opportunity to see everyone. Several reunions have revolved around a wedding or engagement since it is a perfect opportunity to bring the family together.
What Led Us To Adoption
Our journey to adoption started unexpectedly during Stacia’s pregnancy. Due to some complications, our son, Alaric, was born very early. Although he is doing very well, another pregnancy is not in our future. We did not know what to expect when it came to adoption, but the more we talked to friends about their experiences, the more excited we became about the idea of adopting a child. We love the idea of growing our family and knowing Alaric will have a sibling to grow up with. We have seen how much more love adoption can bring into a family and cannot wait to grow our own through adoption.
