A Heartfelt Hello!

Thank you for taking time to learn a little about our family. We hope you enjoy and use our profile as a little snapshot into our everyday lives, personalities and fun moments! More than anything, our hope is that you will see the love we have for each other, our family and our future child.

Deep, loving roots to adoption bond our family in many ways, as Rebecca herself was adopted as an infant. We look forward to establishing an open and honest relationship through this life-changing process, in whatever unique and special way that may be.

We want you to know how much love and respect we feel for you already. We pray for you and your child daily, that you would have peace and comfort in choosing a family.

With love,

Dan & Rebecca

We want to say thank you so much for taking a peek into our life together!  We are very excited for you to have our profile in your hands, but, we can’t even begin to understand the magnitude of the decision you are facing. We hope that this book can provide you with a snapshot of what our life is like, as well as the people in our lives that will love your child along with us. 

We will devote our lives to making sure your child has everything they need and more love than they could ever imagine.  We promise to make sure your child knows love, laughter and a lifetime of happiness. We promise we will do everything we can to make sure that your child knows where he or she came from and all about the family that loves them so much.

We can’t pretend to know the amount of strength and courage this decision takes.  We are truly blessed to be given the opportunity to be chosen by you to be your child’s parents and for that we are forever grateful. 

Thank you for taking the time to get to learn a little bit about us!

With love,

Jill & Donatas
