David and Leah’s Letter

Dear Birth Mother,

Thank you for taking a moment to get to know our family. We cannot imagine the courage and selflessness it must take to make an adoption plan for your child. We are humbled that you would consider entrusting us with your most precious gift, a child that would bond us together for a lifetime.

We are David and Leah. We were born on the same day, in nearby hospitals, attended the same university, but didn’t meet until 2005 in a small group bible study. We knew almost immediately that we would spend the rest of our lives together, and were married a year later. This year we celebrated 17 years of marriage, and our daughter was born in 2013. She is an absolute bundle of joy, energy, laughter, and love! Our daughter has such a warm, kind, and gentle spirit. She is constantly looking for ways to bring others joy, and her heart is already overflowing with love for a sibling she hasn’t even met. Experiencing life with her and seeing the world through her eyes has made us long for another child. We always thought we’d have a big family, but were met with unexpected infertility. The pain and loss experienced over the last several years has been difficult, but not lessened our desire to grow our family.

David is a video editor who enjoys providing for and spending time with his family. His schedule can be demanding at times yet flexible, with the ability to work at home when needed. David loves jeeps and off-roading adventures, being outdoors, traveling, cinema, and is an avid reader. Leah is a compassionate educator with a heart for kids. Her many years of teaching experience have helped her homeschool our daughter since kindergarten. She also teaches part time at the Christian school our daughter attends two days a week. Leah loves family time, date nights with David, traveling, cooking, reading, and comedy. She is a huge Lucille Ball fan!

Our home is a warm and cozy place to be, where we snuggle on the couch for family move nights, camp out in the backyard and make s’mores, and cuddle up for a bedtime story before saying the Lord’s prayer together each night. We live in a small town, just far enough from the city to enjoy life in the country. We treasure our family walks in the evening after dinner with Clementine and our dog, Max. Max is sweet, loyal, and so much fun, as every dog should be. Being a homeschooling family, we enjoy frequent trips to the library, cooking and baking together, visiting museums, nature and science centers, and the zoo. Our family loves swimming at the community pools, hiking nearby trails, visiting neighborhood parks, taking day trips around our state, and tent camping in a state park. We are even beginning to visit the National Parks!

All of our extended family lives close by, so we can all get together for birthday celebrations, Thanksgiving, Christmas, really anytime we can find an excuse to get together we do! We know how important it is for grandparents to have time with grandkids. Our extended family has attended piano recitals, school performances, served alongside us at church, and they were there the day our daughter was baptized! We have a strong support system of family and close friends, many of whom have adopted, who continue to faithfully pray for us as we pursue adoption.

It would be an honor to give your child a Christian home, filled with plenty of love, laughter, snuggles and cuddles. Your child will be cherished, adored, and loved unconditionally. We will always speak of you with the utmost gratitude, and your act of courage will always be held in the highest esteem.

Thank you so much for considering our family. We are hopeful and prayerful God would grow our family through adoption. If you would like to talk with us, we would love to talk with you and answer any questions you may have about our family. We are praying for you, your child, and the decisions you have ahead. We ask the Lord to grant you peace in your decision.

May God Bless and Keep You,
David and Leah
