A Letter from Bob & Emily
Hi! We’re hoping to grow our family through adoption! Many years before we became parents, God put adoption on our hearts. We’ve loved becoming parents to our two biological children and we dream of adding another child. We continue to feel a strong call to adopt a child and we’re excited to welcome a boy or girl of any racial background into our little family. God has given us the means to provide a safe, nurturing, and loving home for our children and we would feel blessed to share our lives with your child. We hope to get to know you!
We look forward to sharing our whole lives and whole hearts as parents. We’d love to make memories from things we do together in our everyday lives, like going for walks, baking cookies, and playing games together. We’ll also go on adventures, like trips to the beach or traveling somewhere new. Emily enjoys reading Goodnight Moon with the kids before bed and Bob likes teaching them to play ball in the backyard. Big brother and sister can’t wait to show their new sibling how to build with blocks, cuddle a stuffed animal, or zoom down the slide. We will make sure your child always knows how loved and safe they are. We will also share our faith by teaching our children that they are fearfully and wonderfully made by a God who loves them immeasurably.
I’m into into reading, refinishing furniture, and exercising.
I enjoy working out, home projects, and watching football.
We have two energetic kids who are excited about having another sibling! Liam is our 4 year old son who loves to run, build, and explore. McKenna is our 2 year old daughter who likes climbing, laughing, and taking care of her baby dolls.
Our Home in Virginia
Our four-bedroom house comes with a big backyard, complete with a playground for the kids. It is full of children’s artwork, toys, and lots of laughter. With a big living space and bedrooms upstairs, there’s room for a playroom downstairs, too.

|More About Our Family|
|Our Special Interests|
As a couple we enjoy lunch or dinner dates with a friendly competition in a round of bowling or mini-golf. We also like going for walks, watching movies, and planning vacations to travel somewhere new.
God is our rock and firm foundation. Many of our close friends come from our church community, and our kids have friends through playgroups. In addition to attending church on Sundays, we also lead a weekly Bible study.
Sadie is part Sheepdog and part Poodle and the sweetest dog for our family! She's energetic and fun-loving, enjoys playing fetch or with her toys, and gets excited when the kids have treats for her.
|Our Heart for Open Adoption|
Your child's story starts with you, which means you would always hold a special place in our hearts. If you'd like to have an open adoption or any ongoing relationship, we'd love to embrace that. We're open to staying in touch throughout your child's life, sharing visits, pictures, and videos, if you're comfortable.

Either boy or girl
Thank you for learning about our family as you decide what you want for your child's future. If you'd like, we'd love to talk and learn more about you too! Adoption has been on our hearts for many years and we're ready and excited to be in this process of growing our family this way. We are open to an open adoption too, if you want an ongoing relationship with us throughout your child's life. We're praying for you and your baby as you make your plans.
