Dave and Jen’s Letter

Dear Birth Mother,

We want to start by saying how much we admire your courage and strength in considering an adoption plan for your baby.  Your love and sacrifice for your child goes without saying and we truly respect any decision you make because we know it comes from the love in your heart.  We pray for peace and comfort as God directs you throughout your journey.

We are Dave and Jen.  We have been married since 2007 and have always had the desire to grow our family.  We both come from close, loving families and it’s always been the desire for us to have children, to share that same love that we both had growing up.  After infertility surgeries and treatments, it became aware that we would unlikely have children of our own and God opened the door of adoption to us and we are excited to grow our family in this way.

We met swing dancing and have had a ball together since!  We love to travel and explore, whether it’s a quick weekend road trip to somewhere new in Texas we haven’t been, visiting other US cities and ultimately traveling the world.  There are so many incredible things to do and see in this world, and our goal is to experience as much as we are able to, Lord willing.

Currently, we live in a safe neighborhood, surrounded by great neighbors.  We have a block party twice a year for all the families in our neighborhood and it’s been a great way to get to know and build relationships with those who live around us.

Dave is an Investment & Financial Advisor and works from a home office.  His work allows him to be flexible and create his own schedule.  He enjoys flying, hiking, camping and fly fishing.

Jen is a Physician Assistant and works part-time for an Allergy and Asthma practice.  Working part-time also allows flexibility in her schedule to be home more.  She enjoys reading, antiquing, working in the yard, and do-it-yourself projects.  She also has a small business in the skin care and makeup industry and works with Dave in his business as well.

Being small business owners, we are active in our community and have built relationships and friendships with others in our community.  We are active in our church.  Dave serves on the Safety Team and teaches Financial Peace University and Jen works with the Women’s Ministry.  We had the opportunity to travel with our church to Israel 2 years ago and walk the ancient pathways and gain a greater understanding of the Bible.

We have a strong marriage of over 12 years and enjoy our life together and would love to share our love and experiences with children through adoption just as we have been adopted as God’s children through Christ.  Thank you for considering our family.  We look forward to getting to know you better.

Most sincerely,
Dave & Jen
