|Hi, we are Peter and Elizabeth. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us. We met at a birthday party that our friends had invited us too. Not long after meeting, Peter asked Elizabeth out to dinner. We realized how much we had in common and how much we really enjoyed each other’s company on that first dinner date and have been inseparable ever since. We got married 18 months later at our church with all our family and friends. Our relationship and love for one another has grown stronger over time. We are best friends that balance each other out well. We have been blessed with 3 wonderful children: Julia, Justin, and Emily. We want more than anything to share the love we have for each other and for our children with another child. We are hoping to be blessed to adopt a child to share that love with.|
We have a very close-knit family. We frequently see our parents, siblings and nieces and nephews. We like to go on vacations with our families. Elizabeth is a stay at home mom and will continue to stay at home. We are Catholic and will raise the baby in the Catholic faith. We have a dog named Daisy who loves kids, a rabbit named Barnaby and a fish named Ocean. We also foster homeless puppies that have been rescued until a permanent home is found for them. Our kids really enjoy helping and caring for these homeless puppies.
We have many traditions. Every year we go apple and pumpkin picking in the fall. We always make cookies for Santa and food for the reindeer at Christmas. The night before St. Patrick’s Day, we make a leprechaun trap to hopefully one day catch a leprechaun. We decorate Easter eggs and have Easter Egg hunts for Easter. It is also a tradition of ours to make homemade cards for our family members for birthdays, holidays and just to say thank you. The kids really enjoy making them. One of the most important values we teach our children is gratitude.
Our children get along well and have fun together. They would love to have another sibling to love, teach how to play soccer and basketball, bring along to the beach and to just have fun with.
We spend a lot of time outdoors with the children. We enjoy taking them hiking, swimming, biking, skiing and sledding in the winter. We especially like to take them to Vermont to visit Peter’s parents. We enjoy taking them to fun places like Disneyland, zoos and amusement parks. We enjoy going to the kid’s sports games. Our favorite thing to do is to just stay home and be together. We frequently play the card game Go Fish or the board game Trouble.
We live in a two-story house with a spacious backyard. The neighborhood we live in is very family oriented. Our town is filled with kids, playgrounds, parks and good schools. We have made many good friends in our town that we like to spend time with.
Peter is very handy and does most of the house repairs himself. He loves woodworking and makes furniture. He also loves gardening and keeping the yard beautiful. He enjoys coaching our son’s soccer team.
Elizabeth is very health conscious and tries to make healthy meals and snacks for the family. She loves sports, exploring new places and volunteers at the kid’s schools. She is currently trying to teach herself to speak Spanish.
We believe that we are meant to adopt a child. If we are blessed to be able to adopt a child, we would be filled with so much gratitude to the birth family for giving us such a gift. We want to have an open relationship with the birth parents. We want the baby to know their birth family and know about your courage and love for them. We want the baby to know where they came from and to honor you. We are open to letters, pictures, email contact, telephone contact and annual visits. We are open to the level of contact that you desire and are comfortable with. We have such respect and admiration for your choosing adoption.

We have so much more love in our hearts to give another child and believe in our hearts that we are meant to adopt.

We will devote our lives to loving your baby and giving them a life filled with happiness. We wish you God’s peace in making your decision.
