We respect the love you have for your child.
Us on a boat!
First of all, we respect the love you have for your child. Your selfless action is truly admirable, especially in what must be very difficult circumstances for you. Always know that you will remain in our prayers, and that your child will know the heartfelt respect we have for you.
We'd describe our relationship as one built on love, friendship, and faith.
We actually met via a dating service and instantly hit it off. Our second date was a dinner date that lasted four hours because we never ran out of subjects to talk about. Dating was a mix of dinner/movie dates, meeting each other's family and friends, and just hanging out. Our most unique date was about 10 months into our relationship, when we flew to Disney World to meet up with Trent's brother and his family. Trent proposed after one year of dating, and we were married less than one year later; we've been happily married for over 9 years now. We'd describe our relationship as one built on love, friendship, and faith.
We both come from families where adoption is present.

We got married later in life because it took us a while to find the right person (and we both feel lucky that we met the right person), and we both always had the desire to have a family of our own. We both come from families where adoption is present. Trent's nephew is adopted, and Amy's older brother was adopted by her father when her parents were married. So adoption seems like a natural option for us, and we're excited about adopting a child of our own.
We want you to know that raising a child is a responsibility that we will take very seriously.
Amy and Trent
Thank you for taking time to learn about us. We want you to know that raising a child is a responsibility that we will take very seriously. We therefore want to make four promises to you: 1. We promise to raise our child in the church and in a Christian household. 2. We promise unconditional love for our child and to make sure their needs are met. 3. We promise to do our part to educate our child and to provide the best possible educational opportunities. 4. We promise that we will remain committed faithfully to each other as we raise our child together.
