David & Liz
are hopeful adoptive parents from Virginia waiting to adopt a baby.
If you are pregnant and considering placing your child for adoption, please read the following Dear Birthmother Letter.
We are very active and love to try new things. During the summer we took a trip to Canada where we drove through a Safari, zip-lined, toured a Castle, golfed and of course, beach time. Before Christmas we went on a cruise to Mexico. We have had many adventures and can't wait to share them with a family.
We are very excited that you are taking the time to get to know us! We greatly admire and respect a birth parentís decision to give the gift of a child to a couple who so greatly desires to have children. We understand that this is a difficult decision, but hope to set your mind at ease as you learn more about us.
So let's start at the beginning. David was studying music, while Liz was focusing on biology. We met through Church, which is the greatest place to meet your future spouse! We were close friends for over 2 years before dating. We only dated for a short time before knowing that we belonged together. After a 3 month engagement, we were married in 2001 and celebrated our 11th anniversary this year, 2012. We hoped to start our family early, but we have been unable to have children. We are thrilled with the idea of starting our family through adoption.
We live in a rural community with our two dogs, boxer-mix Molly and beagle-mix Joe, and a bearded dragon, Francesca. David is the band director at the local high school, while Liz teaches biology at a community college and previously worked at a Veterinarian Clinic before completing her Masterís degree. David is a jack-of-all trades; he can work on cars, computers, is a great handy-man, loves sports, and fishing. Liz has just started her new hobby of photography; she took a wonderful trip to Costa Rica with her college in March. She loved it, loads of animals/insects, zip-lining and white-water rafting! Check out the pics in the album :-) We both enjoy spending a lot of time outdoors; kayaking, hiking, fishing, anything and everything outdoors. We are both very active in church and in our community. David is currently serving in the Men's organization and is also the chorister at church. Liz teaches Sunday School and is the women's choir director.
After adopting, we plan on teaching our children strong values; to know right from wrong, be truthful, and to love and respect God and his creatures. Our child will spend lots of time outdoors, learning and appreciating the world around them. We both have extended family close-by and they will play a large part in our childís life.
We are thrilled that you have read our letter and look forward to hearing from you. We are willing to share the growth of your child, after he/she is born, through letters and photos. We want to make sure that you know that your child will be loved, taken care of, and most importantly, happy. We both thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the choice you are making for your child, and for the love that he/she will bring into our lives.
David and Liz
