Brad & Cassie
are hopeful adoptive parents from Arizona 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 a family of three thanks to the miracle of adoption. Our family believes in laughing every day, cooking meals together, playing outside, and spending quality time together as much as possible. We are excited to welcome another child into our family and provide him or her with two loving parents and a wonderful sister, a beautiful home, a strong education, and a Christian foundation.
We were introduced by our best friends, and we can actually say it was “love at first sight”! We had so many things in common, such as alma mater, where we grew up, sports, friends, and general outlook on life that we felt as if we had known each other our entire lives. We were soon married, bought our first home together, and tried to start a family right away.
We struggled with infertility, and the whole time we were seeing doctors, we kept talking about adoption. We realized that we are parents meant to find our children through adoption, and it was not a difficult decision to focus on adopting. We were blessed with the adoption of our daughter, Avery, about a year after making our decision!
We are excited to adopt again and add to our family! We know Avery will be a terrific big sister, and we have discovered that being parents is one of the most treasured aspects of our lives.
Brad is such a loving husband and father, and I love how involved he is in raising Avery. He works as a golf teaching professional, and he is constantly striving to be a better instructor and player. I can’t wait to see him coach our kids’ sports teams someday! Brad’s favorite sports are football, basketball, baseball, and golf. Some of his favorite things to do are taking Avery to swim lessons once a week and cooking on the grill. He has a close relationship with his parents; they speak on the phone daily and enjoy video chats with Avery in between visits to Arizona.
Cassie is the glue that holds our family together. Her dedication to being a mother and a wife is inspiring. She is a leader in her profession of anesthesiology, and still spends so much time teaching and playing with Avery. After every day she spends with Avery, I come home and Avery has learned a new animal sound or a new word. Cassie and I share a special bond with our love for sports, our college we attended (we are both active in our alumni association), views on life, and our desire to raise our children to be great people. Cassie enjoys traveling, playing golf and tennis, taking walks with Avery, reading and especially writing. I know someday I will enjoy reading her first published book.
Our daughter makes us laugh every single day! She is an active little girl who loves swimming, climbing, and reading books. She enjoys going everywhere with us, whether it’s a quick trip to the grocery store or vacation to Hawaii. She makes friends easily, most likely due to her infectious smile! Her favorite word is "baby," and we know she will be a wonderful big sister.
We have an open adoption arrangement with Avery’s birthmom, and we are so happy with the way our relationship continually grows. We keep in touch with text messages, emails, and photos, and we also meet in person a few times a year.
We live in a quiet neighborhood in a central location of our town in southern Arizona. We enjoy having access to a walking trail, several parks, grocery stores, restaurants, and schools. We spend lots of weekends on our back patio grilling, swimming in the pool, and hanging out with friends.
Our parents live out-of-state, but we enjoy visits from them several times a year. We love to travel, and we like to explore at least one new place every year in addition to a couple trips to visit family.
We will raise our children in a home full of love and support. We hope to provide them with a strong educational background to help them succeed in all their endeavors. We plan to teach them our Christian beliefs in the hope that they will grow up to be kind and generous adults. We feel that a child will thrive in our home with lots of hugs, bedtime stories, home cooking, laughs, travels, and wonderful friends and family.
