Dear Birthmom

Dear Expectant Mother,

We are so grateful you could be considering us to raise your child. Nothing in this world would make us happier than to create a wonderful life for your baby. We really respect the courageous decision you are considering. Being in the military gives us a lot of opportunities to travel the world and to show your child the joys of adventuring! We cannot wait to show them all the different cultures of the world! If you choose us, we want to educate your child on loving every being no matter how different they may look from us and how everyone is worthy of being shown kindness no matter what their background is.

We love to go hiking in the mountains and near rivers and lakes with our dogs, so we would love to strap your baby on our backs and show them the wonders of the outdoors! We would stop for picnics and, of course, a few snapshots! We love to go kayaking, so your child would have so much fun riding along on the crystal-clear lakes near the mountains! On cold winter days, we love to cook, so being able to feed your baby goodies and teaching them to cook with us would be such a joy. Nicole loves to bake and cannot wait to get messy with your growing child.

Our traditions are going to be our most favorite thing we are so excited to share with your child. We both love fall and winter, so those will be our best times for traditions. We want to take your child to pumpkin patches and tree farms! Just the joy of finally celebrating holidays as a family will be the biggest blessing of all. Thank you for considering making our dream of becoming parents come true!

Our Story

Our names are Alec and Nicole, and we appreciate you taking the time to get to know us!
Alec is in the United States Air Force. He works with radio transmissions and communications. Nicole works in optometry as a lead optician. We both love what we do! We met in our second month of college in 2011 and have been together ever since. Alec is the goofiest and most lighthearted man and always makes Nicole feel loved! Nicole has so much love and patience for children. We love to laugh and adventure the world. We both grew up in small towns in Iowa on opposite sides of the state, but once a year Nicole’s family always had Christmas gatherings in Alec’s hometown ever since the 1980s, so we are sure we have accidentally run into each other without even knowing that one day we would be soulmates!

 Our Extended Family

Our families have many traditions we cannot wait to share with your child! Alec’s family has a cabin in Minnesota we love to visit, and everyone comes to just be with each other. We go fishing off the dock, everyone makes their favorite food to bring, and we usually end with a good campfire before bed. Your child would have so much fun running and playing in the water and enjoying outdoor games.

Nicole’s biggest tradition has been happening since the 1980s and is our all-time favorite. It happens the first weekend in December. Her family comes from all over to meet in a little town. We all bring food to share, play board games, swim in the hotel pool, and spend time together. We would love to show your child all the love and meaningfulness of family time and just plain fun!

Both of our families are back in Iowa, but we make it back to see them as much as we can or they come visit us in the many unique places we have lived. Our families are our biggest cheerleaders! They are so excited to be a part of their grandchildren’s lives and to shower them with all the grandparent love they can. To say that your child, if you bless us with this amazing gift, will be spoiled would be an understatement!

 Our Home

Our home is nestled on a quiet street on an Air Force base. The base always has activities for children and their families we cannot wait to experience with our future baby! We live in a three-bedroom, two-bath house. We have a room that would make a great area for your baby to learn and play in while letting their imagination roam. We have a great backyard where we love to play with our two dogs, and there’s plenty of room for your child to run around and use their imagination! We have a bloodhound mix named Hank and a small Lab mix named Jayda. They were both rescues and are spoiled rotten! They both love kids and will shower your baby with cuddles and kisses!

 Our Journey to Adoption

Our adoption story starts with us always knowing we wanted to be parents! As soon as we got married, we wanted to start trying for a baby. After many years of negative pregnancy tests, we decided to move forward. We have always wanted to adopt a child no matter if we had a biological child or not because Nicole’s grandmother was adopted. We know we can create such a fun, loving home! We know in our hearts that adoption is the way we will be able to create a family, and we cannot wait!
