Commitment Statement: Our greatest responsibility as parents would be to unconditionally love and support our child. It’s also important to us to empower them, through education and honesty, to make their own decisions and shape their life the way they want it to be. We promise to love and protect a child throughout our lives. We feel very strongly that the best way of letting a child know that they are adopted is to talk about it openly and positively from a young age letting the child know how loved they are by both the biological family and the adoptive family. Our commitment is to provide a loving environment and unwavering support system we think a child needs to grow up healthy and happy.

What Takes Priority In Our Life: Spending quality time with each other and family on a daily basis as well as vacations, holidays and weekends takes priority in our life. We have a strong marriage and solid foundation to build our family upon. Welcoming a child into our family would mean putting the child’s needs above our own and giving them every opportunity they need to grow and learn, cherishing them always.

What We Would Be Like As A Parent: Our young child’s daily routine would include family dinner every night, help with homework, nightly bath, and bedtime stories. We will encourage a variety of extracurricular activities to help our child find their passion as long as he or she is interested and it does not interfere with school. Weekends would include family activities such Saturday morning trips to the Farmer’s Market, bike rides on the nature trail and Sunday morning church service. We believe in direct parenting and not letting an electronic device serve as a babysitter. While we understand children grow up with technology, we want to find a good balance. Family vacations would take place during Spring Break and summer but we feel it is important to be at home for the traditional holidays in order to build lifelong memories for our child such as Thanksgiving dinner and setting out milk and cookies for Santa on Christmas Eve.

While we hope and dream for things to go perfectly as planned, we understand and expect life to throw us curve balls. There are ups and downs throughout life and parenthood and while we can’t control it, we can control how we respond to them and how we teach our child to react. In more serious circumstances, we have access to excellent healthcare and on a lighter note, we have a good sense of humor.

Letter to Birth Mother

Dear Birth Mother,

Thank you for considering us as adoptive parents. Reading this letter shows courage and the love you have for your child. We couldn’t begin to understand the challenges you’re facing while making such an important decision, but we do hope that you find peace of mind with whichever path you choose.

It’s important to us that you know how excited we are about the opportunity of becoming parents and that we’re eager to share this journey with you. Each of our nieces and nephews has brought extra love into our lives and families! We look forward to having a child of our own, a child who can depend on us, learn from us, and teach us. There are so many experiences that we are ready to share and memories to make with a child! He or she would be raised with love and respect, not only for themselves and others, but most importantly, for you.

Best Regards,
Scott and Claire

 
Why Choose Us

A New Chapter

What it means to be parents and what our strengths would be:
Being a parent means putting the needs of another above your own. It means you are able to demonstrate patience, understanding and unconditional love for children. Supporting a child in their interests, encouraging them to grow and being there for them on their best days and their worst.

Claire won’t pass on an opportunity to babysit to pacify her maternal instinct. Scott loves children as well and really enjoys teaching them virtually any topic. He has an incredible amount of patience and a wealth of knowledge to share. We want to pursue adoption with the hope of connecting with an expectant mother who needs us as much as we need her.

What I want you to know about Claire:
"Claire is smart, loving and kind. Her sense of humor is funny and she’s always honest. Claire is a nurturer and is always looking for opportunities to care for children and animals. She’s the first to volunteer to babysit or watch over the kids while others step out for an errand. She’s a wonderful wife and will be an even better mom. " - Scott

What I want you to know about Scott:
"Scott became my best friend at work and we have been together now for over four years. We married in December 2013. We feel like we have had time to learn what type of life we really want and who we want in it. When we met each other, we knew we’d found our perfect match. Scott is an incredible man and I’m very fortunate to call him my husband. He is very caring, compassionate, and loving. He is intelligent and has a great sense of humor. He is extremely honest and I trust him completely. It makes me smile to think of Scott reading a bedtime story or teaching a child how to ride a bike. He will be an excellent father and he will put everything he has into being the best dad a little boy or girl could hope for." - Claire
