josh-brooke2Dear Expectant Parent(s),

We would like to thank you for considering adoption and taking the time to read about our story and our desire to provide a life full of love and adventure for a precious child. We understand that different circumstances bring both of us to consider the path of adoption. It is our prayer, that if you choose to continue on this journey, God will grant you the courage, strength, and peace needed to make this difficult yet important decision for the precious life God has formed within you.

Josh and I have known each other since childhood. We love to have a good time. Josh can be really comical. We attended grade school together at a private Christian school. Life took our families on different paths through our adolescent years. We reconnected through our church youth group and became high school sweethearts. We attended Bible College for a short time and then married after 3 years of dating.

Adoption has always held a very special place in our hearts as early as our dating days and somehow we knew it would be part of our lives. Although we didn’t know how God would make it part of our story, we trusted his timing and plan. After trying to conceive for ten years, we couldn’t be more excited to pursue the dream God placed on our hearts many years ago. We were both nurtured in very loving homes and desire to give our children that same blessing.

We live in a quiet neighborhood with a nice mix of young couples and retired folks. Several of them we know on a first name basis by visiting with them on our evening walks. We hope to one day move to the country where the kids and dogs can run free and explore God’s creation.

josh-brooke1We are very involved in the church where we attended most of our lives. Josh and I teach the teen Sunday school class. Both of our parents and several extended family members attend there as well. They are very supportive of our desire to adopt and will lavish our child with love and affection as well as with prayer and spiritual support. We appreciate the strong family values we have been blessed with. We can hardly wait to have the privilege to pass down such a rich godly heritage to the children God has planned for us to share our life with.

Josh works for a heating and air company. He was taught the trade from his father, who owned his own business during Josh’s childhood. In his free time, he enjoys trail rides on his 4 wheeler or planning and gearing up for hunting season. He loves the outdoors. We dream of the day we will be bringing our children along. Josh can’t wait to teach our children to hunt and enjoy God’s creation just like he did as a child.

I work part time as a family assistant. My duties include meal prep, buying groceries, running errands, laundry, scheduling home repairs, and helping transport the children to and from activities. They have become like family over the years. When the boys are out of school, we enjoy spending time together. Playing outside, grabbing some ice cream or a snow cone, and spraying them with the water hose while they jump on the trampoline are just a few of the things we enjoy. Their family is very excited for Josh and I and have given me the option of having baby with me in their home if I so choose. Once our family adjusts to the new life together, we will make the decision about whether I will bring baby with me as I continue to work part time or to stay at home. Prior to my current job I worked at a florist as a floral designer and wedding planner. I love flowers, gardening, and designing. I also enjoy event planning when my schedule allows. When off work, I’m usually up for an adventure with my best friend, Josh! As we often thank God for the life He has blessed us with, we look forward to the day we get to share our adventures and blessings with the children we will love and adore.

We appreciate your willingness to peek into our hearts and feel the desire of our soul to love a child and provide a caring and loving family for a precious baby. You have been in our prayers now for some time and we have a calm assurance that God will give you peace as you lean upon Him and trust Him for divine direction. We look forward to meeting you and including you in our family should God’s will provide those circumstances.

Sincerely,

Josh & Brooke
