We are Marcus and Amy, and we are glad to have this chance to tell you more about ourselves. We want to thank you for considering our family for your adoption plan. You are strong and courageous, and we promise to do our best to honor your choices. We are praying for you as you contemplate this decision.

We have been married for seven years and have one child. Our daughter Evelyn was born in March of 2011. We have always dreamed of building our family through adoption, and are thrilled to have this opportunity.

Our hearts yearn to welcome a child of any race into our home, to love that child fully, to nurture that child, and to ensure that child understands and appreciates where they came from. We also want to ensure that child loves and appreciates the woman who loved them enough to bring them to our family. We promise to honor you and to give this child the best life that we can.

We wish you God’s blessings on your journey!
– Marcus, Amy and Evelyn
