A Letter from Dan & Nikki
Thank you for taking the time to read all about us! We are thrilled to start our family and to include our child in holiday traditions and yearly vacations. We are excited to teach them how to ride a bike, to share with them our love of animals and the outdoors, and much more.
Being parents has always been a dream of ours. After experiencing three pregnancy losses we prayed and leaned on each other, truly feeling that adoption is the right path for us. We are both so very excited to begin our life as a family of three (or more)! We often can be found enjoying the day down at the waterfront or beach, at the gym, working on our home, and bike riding when on vacation. We also love to spend time with our family and friends or helping out at our church. We also love to just stay home in our pajamas watching movies and eating chocolate! We look forward to sharing our lives with your child and teaching them all about sports and cooking!
Nikki is very outgoing, bubbly, and fun. She is dedicated to her job as a preschool teacher and loves what she does, especially making a difference in the children’s lives. Her maternal instincts make her an amazing teacher. I fell in love with her because she is my biggest supporter and loves me unconditionally. I know she will offer the same love and support to our child. In her spare time, she loves to do crafts, decorate our home, cook delicious meals, re-purpose old furniture, and spend time with family and friends. Most of all she is looking forward to sharing her love of cooking, family outings, bedtime stories, snuggles, and goodnight kisses.
Daniel has a very charismatic personality. Always smiling, joking, and making people laugh. What made me fall in love with him was how he takes care of me, always puts me first, and makes me feel safe. In his spare time, he can be found at the gym, washing his car, painting his models, baking delicious desserts, and working on our home. One of my favorite things about him is how dedicated he is to our friends and family. Dan is most excited to share his love of fitness, sports, and exercise with our child. He is also looking forward to having a baking buddy to take fishing and show his favorite vacation spot in South Carolina.
Our home is warm and inviting, with 4 bedrooms, an open floor plan, and a fenced in yard for our children to play in. We have the perfect room that we are fixing up to be the nursery right across the hall from our master bedroom.
We live in a quiet, child-friendly community with many parks, and close to the waterfront with lots to do for families. We have been in our home for over a year now and our neighbors all look out for each other. There are lots of fairs, markets, and activities for families year round that we are excited to take part in as a family of three!
We have had the most amazing role models growing up who have instilled in us values we hope to pass on to our children. Both of our parents live less than 20 minutes away, while Nikki’s brother is less than an hour, and Dan’s brother and our sister in law live in beautiful Vermont where we visit yearly. We make it a priority to spend holiday’s altogether, as well as birthdays and any other free time we may have!
Our parents, as well as our siblings, are beyond excited to welcome your child into the family and to share with them our family traditions. We are truly blessed with all of the support and love from the people around us through each step of this wonderful journey.
We promise to forever love your child and always encourage them to follow their dreams and be anything they want to be. We will provide them with a Christian upbringing, and always make sure they feel safe. We will instill in them values that are important to us such as love, determination, respect, kindness, and generosity.
We promise that your child will grow up knowing where they came from and just how much you love them. We would love to have you be a part of your child’s life by sharing photos, videos, and visits.
