To Someone Special,

Our names are Nick and Mary. Before we tell you more about ourselves, we want to express a few things to you from our hearts. Hopefully it will give you a deeper understanding of how much we value YOU, whether you choose us as the adoptive parents for your child or not. We admire your courage and conviction to choose life for your precious child. Your love and selflessness shines through in your decision to seek a stable and loving home where your child can reach their highest potential, guided by God’s graces, and growing with His love. Thank you for making your very best effort to give your child the most loving and caring home that is within your ability to provide them. While we can only imagine how painful and overwhelming this process of adoption must be for you, know that with God's help, you will be able to make the best decision, and He will finish what you have started for your child. If we are the parents you choose for your child, know that we will love them unconditionally, and with all of the commitment, love, and selflessness we would extend to any child God entrusts to our care. We will also make every effort to help them recognize and honor their birth heritage, and understand the tremendous sacrifices you made for them. They will always be reminded of the love of their Heavenly Father, and that the parents who helped give them life desired and loved them so much. 

We have known since we started dating 4 years ago that we would not be able to have children, due to Mary’s struggle with severe endometriosis, which led to an eventual hysterectomy in her early 30s. God placed it in our minds early and we never stopped our pursuit of starting a family through adoption! We pray and reflect on our hopes of a home one day filled with the laughter of children, sharing in the love that we have for each other. We now hope that (if you choose us) your child will be the first of several children to be raised in our loving home. 

Professionally, Mary and I both place a high value on education; Mary has an associate degree and some additional course work in theology and communications, and Nick has a doctorate. Mary plans to be a stay-at-home mom, giving a child all of the love and attention necessary for their growth and development, while Nick plans to continue working as a psychologist, and enjoying the activities and responsibilities of being a loving, Christian father and husband. We hope to provide the opportunity for the child we adopt to have the best quality education and involvement in extracurricular activities that will help them to develop their natural gifts and talents. In addition, we plan to introduce our child to the Catholic Christian Faith by attending Sunday church, teaching them about God, and incorporating daily prayer into our family life. 

We also enjoy a lot of hobbies, as you’ll see in these pictures… Gardening, bicycling, hiking, cooking, and being active in our church!  Mary enjoys singing in our church’s choir, while Nick enjoys woodworking (which he learned from his dad and grandfather).  We also enjoy going for walks in our neighborhood with our two, small (and way too spoiled) Maltese dogs. We would love to see children playing happily with our dogs, and one day participating in the many activities we enjoy together.

When we aren’t at home in Mississippi, we’re usually visiting family, both sides of which live within a day’s drive.  Family is very important to us, so we’re sure to make these trips at least monthly.  We also envision many more trips from our parents visiting us once we have adopted a child, as they are all supportive of us and can’t wait for a grandbaby!

We will end there because we are sure you are tired of reading, but please enjoy looking at our pictures, and don’t hesitate to let us know if you have questions!  If you wish to meet us, we look forward to this time with you. We can only hope that we are able to provide you with the security you want in knowing that you have made the best choice for your child, and we thank you for considering us!
