Dan & Erin
Thank you for considering us to be adoptive parents to your child. We’d be honored if you would consider us to be the adoptive parents of your child. We are very excited about the opportunity to welcome a child into our lives; we have a lot of love and laughter to share. Our wish is to provide a loving, happy, and safe home for your baby and to provide a future with unlimited opportunities and experiences.
We must admit that we cannot begin to understand how difficult your decision must be. Many people do not have the courage to make the decision you are considering, and you have our respect and admiration.
About Erin & Dan —
We are a married couple and have known each other for over 5 years. Erin is the love of Dan’s life. Dan likes that Erin is passionate and determined, and the type of person who sets a goal and goes after it. Erin likes that Dan is analytical and tends to step back and evaluate situations.
Erin has a college degree and has worked at a mid-size sized corporate tax software company for ten years. Dan has a Master’s degree in engineering, and has worked as a System’s Engineer at a large local defense company for 21 years. Together, they make a great couple, given their different yet complimentary personalities.
Dan knows beyond any doubt that the child they adopt will be very fortunate as he or she will always have a friend, a mentor, and a hands-on caring mother all in one woman – his amazing wife. Erin enjoys that her husband can be comical while still being a great problem solver. He has an uncanny way of being the ultimate rock of their family, while having a tender heart, a protective touch, and a nurturing bear hug. We also love to travel and look forward to creating new memories of adventures with a child.
Our Families —
We and our extended families live in Texas. We have close relationships with our families and live close by. We both love the outdoors and getting away from the city. Dan’s family has some land in Southern Oklahoma and we enjoy going to the family retreat in the woods, leaving work behind. We enjoy doing most things together and can’t wait to share our love with a child whose presence will bring even more happiness and a fuller sense of completeness to our lives. Everyone on both sides of our family is absolutely thrilled with our decision to adopt and is completely behind us in this.
Our Home and Community —
We own a single-family home in a quiet and established neighborhood that is in a suburb of a big city. It faces the town’s best elementary school and its playground. In our home we enjoy cooking, movies, playing board games, and snuggling up by the fire. We love the community aspect of our town, while being close to the big city.
Why we chose adoption to grow our family —
Although we do not currently have any children, we hope with all our hearts to be able to grow our family through adoption. Dan genuinely feels Erin will make a wonderful mother, and Erin knows Dan will make the best father. Erin has come to know her oldest biological sister, who was adopted nearly 45 years ago, and over the past 15 years they have become close friends. With the growing of that friendship and the more we learned about adoption, the subject of adoption grew in our hearts along with our desire to have a family of our own. Dan’s father and uncles were also raised in later childhood by family members, so Dan, too, appreciates that adoption is a wonderful way to build a family. We have tried having a biological child, however, due to medical issues, that scenario is not in our future. Doctors have cautioned that a pregnancy would put Erin and a child’s well-being at risk due to a blood-clotting disorder that could endanger a pregnancy.
