Dear Expectant Parent,
Hello! I'm Garvin from Houston, Texas. From a young age I was drawn to adoption as a possibility for growing my family. I am at a point in my life where I feel the most secure, confident, and comfortable I've ever felt, and I am excited to share all of that with a child. In spending time with my 6-year-old nephew Johnny, who you will meet in the coming pages, I see the opportunities that parenthood offers and what I have to offer a child. I am fortunate to have an amazing extended family who are all very excited to welcome a new family member. I dream of getting to take my child to activities pursuing their passions and introducing them to the things I love. I cannot wait to teach my child to ride a bike. I yearn to create new traditions with my child and to grow as a family. Thank you for taking the time to get to know me and those I hold so dear. I look forward to the opportunity to get to know you as well.

Thank you for reviewing our profile book. It's funny how life brings a variety of people together at different times and in unexpected ways. We sincerely appreciate the opportunity to share a glimpse of our family with you. While the pictures show happy and fun times, we recognize that sometimes life is messy and complicated. There will always be things that happen that we won't know much about and cannot control. We recognize this is a difficult and important decision, and we pray for peace for you throughout this process.
Alison + Justin
Hi future family! Our names are Alison and Justin.
We met in a beach town in California in 2014. Very quickly in our relationship, we learned how close we both were with our families.
As things began to get more serious, we began having conversations about growing our family through adoption. We both know people who are adopted, so it's always felt very normal and natural to us.
We are so excited to give you a glimpse into our lives and hope to one day welcome you and your child into our growing family!

We hope that you learn more about us as you scroll across our page. Whatever you are considering or decide, we believe you will make the right choice for you and your child.

You are such an answered prayer for us! We don't know all of the circumstances that brought you to create an adoption plan for your son or daughter, but your selflessness is so cherished. We are humbled beyond measure to have you consider us as parents and know we will raise your child in a God-centered, loving family with SO much support!
Brett + Shayla
Mama, we don't know you. We don't know your story. We don't know your past. We don't know your pain or struggles. We have never walked a day in your shoes, but we want you to hear and truly believe these next words. We pray that regardless if you choose our family or not, that any ounce of shame, guilt, or unworthiness immediately flees you. We pray you feel peace with your decision and that you begin to view yourself as a strong, selfless woman who is loved, chosen, and worthy. Before you make any decisions, it is so important that you start to beleive that.
With that being said, Hi. We are Shayla and Brett.

Dear Expectant Parents,
We know this is a challenging and unprecedented time for you and others in your life. We cannot imagine the stress you must be facing. It is our desire that as you navigate through this decision, we help you feel known, welcomed, and loved by us. While it is our dream to adopt, we also want you to know that you, as parents and family, are just as special as the child you are caring for. We know that we will adopt when the time is right. Our desire to know you, your story and help you process in any way we can. We do not want this to be a relationship that's transactional, but one that is personal and continues to grow throughout all of our lives.
Jess + Cory
We are Cory and Jess, and we want to thank you for taking the time to get to know us! We know this may be a confusing and difficult time for you while you are trying to figure out the best option for you and your precious baby. We hope that you feel supported and loved no matter where you are in your journey. Feel free to let go of any pressure to "get this right" and instead, embrace this opportunity to create beautiful futures for both you and your child. We admire you so much for considering adoption.
