To potential expectant parents who are considering adoption:
Hello, we are Troy & Julie.
We want to first say thank you for taking the time to view our profile and learn a little about us. Starting a family and becoming parents has always been a dream of ours. Early on in our marriage we learned that Julie is not able to carry a baby. We did discuss adoption, but we were not 100% sure of it at first – it can be a scary step to take. After taking time to pray and ask God to lead us in the direction he wants us to go to start a family, he placed adoption on our hearts.
We want you to know that as you are reading this we are praying for you and your child – to bring peace and calmness to you as you make your decision. We feel that every child is such a gift and a blessing from God, and we want to show Gods love to our child and to you as well.
Troy & Julie
Who we are as a family:
We do not have any children, unless you consider our fur babies as our kids. We have 2 cats – Colby & Ramsey, and 2 dogs, Dakota – a beagle mix, and Coco – a Miniature Doxie. We always have a sit-down meal every day for dinner together. This is where we discuss our day and go over any plans we may have for the week. For our hobbies, we enjoy making certain crafts together and some on our own. For example, Julie likes to crochet many things, and cross stitch. We both enjoy playing with our Circut for different things. Troy enjoys making model air planes and cars and working on real cars as well. We attend our church every Sunday and serve at our church as well. Also, we get together with our families as much as we can. Family time is very important to us.
We will continue to pray for you as you on this journey. Thank you again for taking the time to get to know us a little.
Our views on openness in adoption:
We believe that having an open adoption is very important. We do know that it may be scary, uncomfortable, or awkward, and that it takes work. It is a team effort for both birth parents and adoptive parents. We believe it is important for the child as well, it will help them learn where they came from, to know their identity, and the child will be loved by so many. We are open to meeting before the child is born, coming to the hospital when child is born if the birth family wants us to, phone calls, and/or texting, letters, sending photos. Our hope is that eventually both of our families can come together as one family.
