1: Introduction
We are Tom and Steffanie and we thank you for taking the time to look at our profile and learn more about us. We have a lot of love for God, one another, our family and friends, and we look forward to sharing our love with our future child. We have always known we wanted to become parents and we feel that God has led us to the path of adoption to be able to start our family. We respect the difficult decision you are making for the future of your child and we pray that God will lead you through this journey. We would be honored and privileged to welcome you and your child into our family.

2: About Us
We met on a blind date set up by a mutual friend about ten years ago. It did not take long for us to realize we had something special. On July 10th, 2010 we got married and celebrated with all of our family and friends. Our love for one another continues to grow each day. We balance one another out, share responsibility in decision making, and encourage one another in every step on this journey called life. We enjoy going camping and having campfires, walking our dogs, going for drives, and spending time together. Tom is a sales associate at an auto parts store and Steffanie is a high school math teacher. We both have family that is very supportive of our decision to adopt and are excited to welcome a new member to our family. We are looking forward to sharing our love and life with a child.

3. About Tom (in Steffanie’s words)
Tom’s patience, unconditional love and willingness to help others will make him a great father. Tom has always wanted kids so I know he will love every moment spent with them. He is such an encouragement to me and supports me in anything I am doing. I know he will support and encourage our children as well. Camping, being outdoors, and working on cars are some of Tom’s interests and I know he will love sharing those interests with our children and making memories as a family.

4: About Steffanie (in Tom’s words)
Steffanie is the most hard working and determined person I have ever met. I am very blessed to have such a loving person to share my life with. When Steffanie sets her mind to something, she puts 100 percent into reaching her goals. I know Steff will be a great mother because she will put everything she has into being the best parent she can be.

5: About our Home/Pets
Our home is a brick ranch with a nice backyard to play in. Our quiet small town is the perfect place to raise a family. We have friendly neighbors many of which have children, just down the street is a community park, and we are surrounded by beautiful scenery including rolling hills and farmland. Our family is not far from us, so we enjoy spending time together. We also have 2 lovable dogs and 2 ornery cats that we adore. Both of our dogs were adopted and our two cats were from the same litter. We know that our furry family will love a new sibling as well.

In closing, we want to thank you for reading our profile and we would be honored to welcome you and your child into our lives. Your child will always know where he or she came from and will always be loved, supported, and protected. May God be with you in your decision and we will be praying for you.
God Bless,
Tom and Steffanie
