We are Michael and Shannon and we are so thankful that you are considering adoption, and for thinking of us as possible adoptive parents. We have been together since 2004, and married in 2009. We knew right away that we wanted to start a family. We tried for 1 year naturally to become pregnant, but we were not having any luck. We then went to see a fertility specialist… We did all sorts of treatments for 3 years, and again had no success of becoming pregnant. We were diagnosedwith “Unexplained Infertility.” We were very upset because we wanted a family so badly and felt thatour dreams were shattering right in front of our faces! We thought about the prospect of Adoption, andnow here we are. We’re hoping and praying that our dreams to become parents, will soon come true! The bond does not have to be a biological one, we just want to have a baby, we want to complete our family. We have so much love to give to this wonderful angel!
Though we cannot begin to know all that you may be going through right now, we truly appreciate the
tremendous love and courage it takes for you to travel down the journey of adoption. We hope that by
sharing with you how excited we are to provide a safe, loving and supportive home for your child, will help
you with your decision. We are so honored to be a part of this incredibly personal decision and are so
excited about the prospect of welcoming a child into our family.
We bought our first home in 2008 and we love it here!. The city that we live in has many
amazing activities to do. There is a downtown area that has small shops, cafés and boutiques’. We
frequently see families gathered in the areas, either, shopping, riding their bikes, reading a book outside
at the café or walking their dogs. There are parks just minutes away from our home, a pier that you can
walk on and watch the gorgeous sunrises, water parks and beaches. It is a safe area and a wonderful
place to raise a family.
On a daily basis we enjoy taking out dog on long walks around the neighborhood,spending quality time together discussing our day, cooking nice meals together and
enjoying our lives with one another. We enjoy eating and cooking good food,having friends and family over for BBQ’s, camping trips, going fishing and four
wheeling, having bon fires and heading North to the cabin in the woods! We enjoy a healthy, fun and balanced life. We have an amazing network of family and friends, who offer unconditional love and support. We are lucky to be blessed with wonderful friends and family.

We live our lives in an honest and loving way and look forward to a relationship with you. It feels like “Thank You” isn’t nearly enough for this incredibly tough decision you are making. Though we haven’t met, we respect your compassion and courage. The gift of adoption is the ultimate act of profound love and selflessness. We promise that your baby will be loved, protected, and celebrated. He or She will be surrounded by family and friends who will love them unconditionally. We would be
honored to continue a relationship with you through photos and letters , with the help of the agency.
We will always let your baby know that you are an incredible woman who placed their needs above
those of your own.
Wishing you the best,
