Our home is a modern farmhouse near a big city. We are only about 30 minutes from the downtown area of the city, but live on almost 4 acres of land in a rural, gated community. There are a lot of young families in our neighborhood which is a huge reason we moved to this home.
It is our hope that you will become an extended part of our family and we promise to make our best effort to foster and maintain a healthy and mutually beneficial relationship with you.
It's a very safe neighborhood where kids can ride their bikes around freely and there are several neighborhood events throughout the year.
In our home, we have a play room that's dedicated to the kids. We have a large backyard where we spend a lot of time. In the warmer months, we have a slide the kids love to play on and some water tables and toys we set up pretty much every day to play outside. We also have some great parks nearby that we visit frequently. The local zoo and museum is only 25 minutes away, so we take frequent trips there as well.
We have two golden retrievers. Noah is 10 years old and Madeleine is 7. Noah is extremely friendly and has always loved kids. He would actually prefer to play with people, especially kids, rather than other dogs. We got Madeleine a few months before we got married. Noah had always been around other dogs, so we did not want for him to be lonely while we both worked. So, we found Maddie and fell in love with her. She is also extremely sweet, but is also the more protective dog out of the two. Both of the dogs are extremely patient with our kids. Our kids love the dogs and play with them a lot. If the kids have a dog toy or their tails get pulled, the dogs will never bark or snap at the kids. They just wait until the kid lets go of the toy and then go pick it up themselves.
If you choose to pursue an adoption plan with us, we promise we will love and cherish your child just as we do our biological children. We will support them in their interests and encourage them in their dreams. One of our biggest priorities for your child will be that they grow up knowing how loved and valued they are…not just by us but by you too. We will share with them the great love you have for them and that you made an extremely tough decision to ensure you were providing for them as best as you could. We promise to continue to pray for you and love you as long as we both live.
It is our hope that you will become an extended part of our family and we promise to make our best effort to foster and maintain a healthy and mutually beneficial relationship with you. We know that you have a lot to offer in raising your child and we promise to respect and value that as well. We promise to teach your child about God’s love for all people and that Christ loves them more than anyone else.
We promise to teach them to treat others with kindness and respect and to strive to be Christ-like in everything they say and do. We hope to meet you soon and hear more about what you desire for yourself and your child!
with all our love, Ashley and Ryan
