A Letter from John & Samantha
We are John and Samantha! We want to thank you for taking the time to learn more about us. We are a young, faith-filled Catholic couple with a wonderful extended family full of warm and loving people. Adoption has always been on our hearts and, after experiencing fertility issues and pregnancy difficulties, we are excited to grow our family this way! We look forward to welcoming your child into our home and supporting them through life. We are open to visits and look forward to learning more about you!
We met online and hit it off instantly. We dated long-distance for a bit before Samantha moved in with John so we could start our life together. We are partners in everything, whether it is cooking, spending time volunteering at church, or taking care of our house. Our relationship is built on trust and respect for each other and God. We are dedicated to one another and the value of family.
We are so excited to include our child in our family adventures traveling, hiking, and seeing the world! We look forward to reading them bedtime stories, teaching them how to garden plants, sew, raise animals, fish, hunt, and so much more.
John is a loving, caring, loyal, and my best friend! He is a hardworking individual and is one of the most selfless people I know. John is dedicated to others and always puts their needs before his own. He is supportive, funny, is very involved in our local community, and loves to volunteer in his free time.
John loves to cook Asian dishes, draw machinery and buildings, and learn new things. He is originally from Asia and loves to bring his culture into the meals in our house. John also enjoys the outdoors. He loves to go hiking, explore different parts of the U.S. like Yellowstone and the local hills. He looks forward to taking our child camping in nature for them to experience God’s creations. He will be there to support them, make them laugh, and help them achieve their dreams and goals. I know John will be an amazing father!
Samantha is one of the kindest people I know. I feel in love with her because of her integrity and her deep faith in the Lord. She is extremely kind, generous with her time, and puts everything she has into what she loves. She is one of the hardest working and honest people that I know.
Samantha is an elementary teacher and she is highly admired and respected by both students and parents. She enjoys painting pictures with others (especially her mom), reading books and cooking delicious meals. She has a passion for taking care of the plants in our yard and has plans for a great flower garden this spring. Last year she planted many vegetables like tomatoes and peppers and a fabulous herb garden. She is looking forward to sharing her love of gardening and baking with our child. Most of all she looks forward to raising them to be well mannered, loving, and faith-filled individuals.
We are incredibly blessed by our families.
John’s family is located across the world and we communicate weekly with his parents. Samantha’s family lives only a couple hours away and we travel often to go see them for family get-togethers, holidays, and to spend time with the growing number of nieces and nephews. We love to plan vacations and trips with Samantha’s family, including trips to the lakes, hiking trails, and local zoos. As a family, we love to get together every spring and plant all of our gardens together. Samantha’s family also has a farm and we love to spend time on it and watching the baby animals grow.
We have nine nieces and nephews with two more on the way! Your child will always have the blessing of family members close in age!
We currently live in a relatively new three-bedroom home in a great neighborhood. We have a spacious fenced-in backyard that is filled with flowers and lots of room to run around and play. We have already transformed one of the bedrooms into a cute safari themed nursery with a crib, rocking chair, and a cute stuffed giraffe, elephant, and lion.
Our town has a great sense of community and lots of different activities such as movie theatres and shopping. Our neighborhood is full of children and there are parks to run and play in every direction. We love going to the nearby lakes and go hiking, and watching the lighted Christmas lighted displayed.
We promise to will provide a loving and safe environment in which your child will flourish. We will pass along our love of family, God, and education. We will provide for them as they attend college, cheer for them as they try new things and support them as they follow their dreams. We promise to give them every opportunity to succeed educationally, spiritually, physically, mentally, and emotionally. They will grow up knowing their story and your love. We are open to staying in contact with you through pictures, letters, and visits to the level that you are most comfortable with.
