A Letter from Dan & Michelle

Dear Birthmother,

Thank you for taking the time to get to know us. We feel extremely honored to be considered as adoptive parents.  We will love your child always, teach them to enjoy life and keep it fun/safe/nurturing and stable!  We will learn about and share as a family your child’s background and heritage and look forward to sharing letters, pictures, calls, and visits as they grow.

More About Us

We have been married for 9 years, and both grew up in Christian homes where we learned who Christ is and what He sacrificed for each and every one of us. Through this Godly heritage, we learned the importance of having Christ as the center of the family, and we are working hard to pass that same heritage to our family.  With the birth of our daughter, Lila, our family has become richer and more rewarding as each day passes.  We enjoy doing everything together! We enjoy biking, camping, swimming, hiking, exploring, crafting, and much more together as a family and we are excited to add your precious child to our family and share with them our love.

We are looking forward to having family times together, playing games, adventures, introducing our new little one to extended family and friends and building many wonderful memories together!

About Dan

Dan is an avid reader and could carry a conversation on many subjects – his favorite being history. He is involved at church and attends a weekly Bible study. He enjoys camping, hiking, biking, music, exercising, BBQing and home improvement projects.

I was drawn to Dan initially because of his love for Jesus, his fun personality, and his ability to strike up a conversation with anyone.  He is very personable and loves getting to know other people and their interests.  Dan keeps our family laughing and having a great time in anything that we do. Dan is so excited to welcome your baby into the family and looks forward to sharing his love of music, nature, and Jesus with them.

About Michelle

Michelle loves being a stay-at-home mom with our daughter, Lila. She enjoys the outdoors, biking, hiking, cooking, exercising, as well as arts and crafts. Michelle loves children and had the opportunity to babysit for both friends and family all while being active at our church and participating in volunteer programs.

I was initially drawn to Michelle by her humor, her smile, and her genuine and kind personality.  I felt at ease in talking to her and enjoyed the conversations we had, and continue to have. Michelle is excited to welcome your baby into the family and witness the sweet sibling relationship that will grow between them and Lila.  Michelle is looking forward to building memories that will last a lifetime!

Our Daughter and Family

Our daughter Lila is 5-years-old and loves our dog Gideon, her friends, reading, school, Princesses, riding her bike, exploring, and playing on the playground. Lila is very social, enjoys playing with other kids and loves spending time with all of her cousins, aunts and uncles, and grandparents.  When asked about a sibling she says “Yes” with a big smile!

We love spending time with our extended family, and they are so excited about our adoption!  They are waiting with anticipation to meet our new little one, welcome them, and love them.  Our family is very warm, accepting, and filled with love! We are blessed that many of our extended family lives close by and we can spend quality time with them on a regular basis.

Our home in Virginia

Our home has a nice backyard, a cozy deck, a great play area and is located in a townhome community.  Our home is Christ-centered, warm, welcoming, and one that we share with our friends and family when they come over on a regular basis to celebrate holidays, birthdays or just BBQ. We also have a sweet pup named Gideon.  He is part Golden Retriever and Spaniel.  He loves people and is very easy going.  Our neighborhood is family friendly with several parks, lots of families with kids, museums, farms close by, and lots to explore.

More About Our Family
Our Special Interests

As a family, we enjoy camping, swimming, hiking, biking and just being outside. When around the house, we enjoy home improvement projects, playing in the backyard, roasting marshmallows on the firepit, and inviting friends over for a BBQ. We love our dog, Gideon, and he brings us lots of fun and laughter to our family!

Our Faith

We both grew up in Christian homes. Dan’s parents are in ministry and Michelle’s parents worked in the teaching and medical fields. With the foundation of Christian home life, we learned who Christ is and what He sacrificed for each and every one of us. Through this Godly heritage, we learned the importance of having Christ as the center of the family, and we are working hard to pass that same heritage to our family.

Our Musical Interest

We enjoy all types of music from Jazz to Country. We also enjoy taking in a concert, as well as listening to a string band.

About Our Home

Our home is located in Virginia where we have lived for several years. We have a wonderful neighborhood filled with kids of all ages, as well as fun playgrounds throughout. We make it a point to sit down at dinner each night to enjoy each other's company and talk about the day. Sometimes we will play games after dinner, other times we will watch a movie together. But the main thing is that we are together.

Our Daughter Lila

Lila has been a joy since the day she was born. We did not learn her gender till she was born which gave us excitement as we waited to meet her. We incorporate her into everything we do, such as biking, hiking, camping, swimming, etc. She loves to be active and try new things. She is a Kindergartener this year and has really blossomed in her desire to learn and read.
