WI Family | Andy & Jayme

Andy and Jayme are waiting to welcome a child into their heart and home through open adoption. Learn more about them!

Dear Birth Mom/Family,

Hi! We are Andy and Jayme, and we are very excited about the honor and privilege of becoming adoptive parents! We have felt called towards adoption throughout our entire relationship together. It has been something that God has laid upon our hearts for many years. When we first married, we had pictured our family with three birth-children and then adopting our fourth. After more than 10 years of marriage and having those three birth-children, we still see that picture, and still feel called to bring a child into our family through adoption. We want to provide a loving, supportive, and fun home to a child in need. We desire to provide an opportunity for a life that a child may not otherwise have. 

As we continue to wait to be matched, the longing in our hearts for our future child only grows stronger. This is not an easy time for you as the expectant parent, and we want you to know that your child will be cared for and well-loved for the rest of their lives.

WI Family | Brady & Katie

Brady and Katie are waiting to welcome a child into their heart and home through open adoption. Learn more about them!

Dear Birth Mom/Family,

Thank you for taking a few moments to learn about us.  We are so in awe of you & the immense amount of courage it takes to consider an adoption plan.  It is important to us that you feel supported along this entire process & beyond. We promise to honor you and that sweet little babe’s beginnings.  Your story is important and one we will always protect and hold closely in our hearts. 

We have felt a strong calling to adopt stemming back to Katie’s childhood – can you believe that?!   While we are devoted parents to our two biological children, we are thrilled at getting to love another child with every bit of our being.  Baby will also be welcomed by a big brother and a big sister, who are excited to welcome their youngest sibling and forever best friend into our family. 

We pray for your peace and comfort in knowing that your baby will be held by hands who will always want him/her; he/she will be loved fully and unconditionally forever; and he/she will grow and be shaped into a man/woman of greatness because of you and this beginning.  You are an integral piece of that story.  Thank you for learning about our hearts and dreams for our family.

With love and gratitude,

Brady & Katie
