Whitney & Michael

Hoping to Adopt (Texas)

Letter

Hello There


We would be so honored to have the opportunity to meet and learn about you so we can finally put a face to the many prayers we have prayed.


Nice to meet you!
Even though we have never met, we have been praying for you since our adoption journey began. We do not know your name or what you look like. We do not know where you live or anything about your life. But we pray for you--for peace and clarity in this process that we can only imagine to be so difficult. We would be so honored to have the opportunity to meet and learn about you so we can finally put a face to the many prayers we have prayed. We hope this profile gives you a look into our lives and shows you how ready we are to welcome a child into our home.
This Is Our Story

We are absolute best friends and partners in life.


Our Wedding
We met online (before online dating was cool) on Valentine's Day 2010. We went on our first date a few days later to PF Chang's and a comedy club. While Michael was lovestruck from day one, Whitney needed a little more time to be sure. We got engaged seven months later, and ultimately were married in June 2012. We still talk about our wonderful wedding day, even now approaching our ten-year anniversary. We are absolute best friends and partners in life. We complement each other in almost every way. Michael is an extrovert, Whitney a little more reserved. Whitney is a clean freak, and Michael not so much. We cook together, travel together, and we don't jump ahead in our current Netflix show without the other. We respect each other and our roles within our marriage, and we believe it is very important to set an example of a strong marriage to our children.
Why Adoption

We felt that this was God re-opening the door for discussion of adoption to grow our family.


We both wanted to one day expand our family through adoption
We have many family members who have been through the adoption process! Two nieces, one nephew (all three through Gladney), and Whitney's aunt are all adopted. Michael gained firsthand experience in the field of adoption while working at an orphanage in Juarez, Mexico after he graduated from high school. From that point forward, he always knew he wanted to pursue adoption. Adoption was something we spoke about very early on in our relationship, and we both wanted to one day expand our family through adoption. Pregnancy and delivery complications with our son left us unable to have more biological children safely. While we grieved this period in our lives, we also felt that this was God re-opening the door for discussion of adoption to grow our family.
One Last Thing

We are committed to raising our children in an environment filled with love, laughter, inclusiveness, and opportunity.


Thank you so much for taking the time to learn about our family.

The fact you may be considering us to parent your child is a responsibility we do not take lightly. We are committed to raising our children in an environment filled with love, laughter, inclusiveness, and opportunity. We continue to pray for you through this process. Thank you again, and God bless.
