James and Michelle
Jimmy and I both grew up in Jacksonville, Florida, but on different sides of town. We met 10 years ago around Christmas time at a church musical and started dating 4 months later. We actually did not realize we were dating until we noticed that we were together all of the time. Our relationship just came so easy and without any effort, it felt like home. We married in April of 2010 in a church full of our family and friends.
We both come from very close families and we have always wanted to have children. We dreamed about watching our children around the Christmas tree at Christmas tearing open their gifts, enjoying family traditions, and taking our children to Disney World for the first time. A little over a year after we were married, due to a complication from surgery, we found out we would not be able to have children. We struggled with these results for several years. Then one day a friend encouraged us to begin praying about adoption. We quickly realized that adoption was the direction we were supposed go in and we had peace about the decision. We also realized that adoption was designed by God because we believe that He has adopted us into His family. We cannot wait to meet the child that He has chosen for us.
We would like you to know how much love and respect that we have for you. We cannot imagine how difficult this decision is for you, but we do want you to know that we are praying for you daily, that you will have the strength and courage that you need as you go through this process. We know that you want to do what is best for your baby and that you want to make sure that your baby is well taken care of. We pray that you will find that our family is the kind of family you would like to raise your baby. We would like you to know that we promise to always love your child unconditionally and accept them as part of our family.
We want you to know that your child will always know where they came from, how much they are loved and what a tremendous sacrifice you made out of love.
