Life is funny that way . . .

I’m so excited to share the news that one of my cousins and her spouse have announced to the family their plans to adopt a child through an independent adoption process.  As she has explained, this means that they need to get the word out to a potential birth mother and it is the least I could do to share their profile letter here on my blog in the hopes that it might reach the right people.  Who knows, life is funny that way . . .

Below is my cousin’s profile letter with the information for contacting their adoption attorney.  Let’s find out just how small this little world of our really is!


Little girls dream of finding their Prince Charming and riding off with him to live “happily ever after”. My story is no different.

My “ever after” began when I met Mike while we were both volunteering at a charity fundraiser. Our relationship grew stronger and stronger as we shared stories and realized our childhoods were so similar. We were both brought up in loving families strongly rooted in faith and surrounded by extended families made up of aunts, uncles, grandparents and even great grandparents….and cousins galore! Our fondest memories growing up are times we shared with our families.

Our dreams united when we married six years ago. We both have college educations, good jobs and a home in the suburbs with a big fenced in backyard. Our lives are secure. We know that we have been blessed. Love, laughter and respect are but a few of the characteristics we share in our lives together.

Having our own family has always been a dream of ours. We long to hear the laughter of our child as he or she runs and plays in the backyard or joins the other neighborhood children going to the excellent schools offered within walking distance.

We want to share all the wonders of our own childhoods with our little boy or girl. We want to go to baseball games, play games or enjoy swimming and playing at the lake. We want to introduce them to their aunts, uncles and grandparents. We want them to know the joy of toasting marshmallows in front of a fire or giggling under the covers late at night as they share secrets with their cousins. We want them to know there is a big beautiful world out there and we want to share every bit of it with them.

From ABCs and 123s to Santa Clause and the Easter Bunny, we look forward to sharing it all!! Every experience, big and small will be shared within the warmth of our family.

We can’t begin to imagine what thoughts are running through your mind as you search to find the perfect home for your child, nor can we explain the emotions we feel as we beg you to consider allowing us to give your child a nurturing home in which to grow. We can only hope to show you how much love, laughter and compassion we have to share and to try to give you a glimpse into who we are.

We hope and pray you or someone you know will want to get more information about us. If that is the case, please contact our attorney Justin Hester at 770-446-3845 or toll free at 1-888-446-3645 or Please refer to us by our file number: 9/10-A-51

We thank you for taking the time to read our profile.
