Sara + Cullen
Dear Expectant Parent,
We are so excited to be on this journey and we are praying that God has guided you and led you in a way that fulfills your heart and soul. To be right in this moment, is only a work of art that He can create. Though we do not know each others stories, we are hoping you are able to get a feel of who we are through the pages of our book.
Families are made in so many ways and each have their own unique story. My (Sara) family is very large and spread out all over Texas. I have multiple aunts, uncles, and siblings. Cullen was raised with a little less family around the table, but they're full of LOVE. Equally, they each bring a beautiful chaos that loves big and thrives for their family.
We are so proud of you and excited to be even a small part of your story. Even if it is just you taking the time to read this far into ours. Please know that we are rooting for you, praying for you and your child, and their future adoptive parents.
Cullen and Sara
We are so thankful you are taking the time to read a little bit about us. We are an open book and would love to get to know you more. There are so many words that come to mind when we think of you: Courageous, strong, loving, selfless, brave..the list goes on. We are grateful you are taking the time to consider us and entrusting us with your child. Thank you for believing in us and giving us the opportunity to raise such a precious gift.
Being a mama is something I have dreamed about since I was a little girl. At age 18, my whole world stopped when the doctor voiced my worst fear: Ovarian Cancer. Being so young, I had a lot of questions about what my future would look like, but knew that asking "why" was not going to get me far. I spent a good amount of time in prayer and surrounded myself with people who kept my spirits up after having my hysterectomy. Over the years, God eased my hardened heart and opened it up to my options of one day being a mama. After meeting Cullen, we both knew forever had started. We talked about all the ways to grow our family, but our hearts and minds were set on adoption. It truly is such a beautiful thing and we cannot wait to see where this journey goes. Our family will be growing in so many ways and we are excited for you to be apart of it in such a big way!
Talking About Adoption
Cullen and I plan on being very upfront about how our family grows. We also want to have an open relationship with you, the expectant birth parent(s). Writing letters, sending monthly updates (until 1 year and then yearly updates,) and mile stone pictures sent via email. We are also open to yearly visits with expectant birth parents and their family.
Our mindset is that the more people who love our child, the better. To know that our child will have a village of people who will love them endlessly and will there to support their story, puts so much peace in our hearts.
Before You Go
We hope this gave you a little insight on who we are and how ready we are to become parents. We have a tribe behind us that is just as ready to welcome our future babe(babies) into their arms. Our faith is firm and we know that our baby is out there and that in God's timing, we will become parents. We are ready to love, comfort, support, learn, and become a beautiful family.
We are praying for you, your child, and the decisions that are coming your way. We love you, support you, and are here for you.
"You are a fighter. You got this. You will be okay. God is your strength. Let Him guide you through the storm."
