Meet Michael & Allie W.
Dear Expectant Family,
Thank you so much for taking this time to learn about us. Adoption has been on our hearts for a very long time, as Michael was adopted as an infant. We know firsthand that family is built on more than DNA. We also know that your decision is a difficult one, and it is our greatest hope that you feel supported and loved no matter where you are in your journey.
A Little About Us
We have been together for seven years, and married for four. As a couple, we love to watch scary movies, eat out, go boating, and take annual trips to Florida with family. On weekends, we typically have a date night, attend church, and spend time with friends and family.
We love to travel, especially to Disney World with Michael’s parents. We can hardly wait to see our little one encounter all of the magic that Disney offers and to share other experiences like trips to the zoo, walking in the ocean at the beach, visiting DC, and many more.
While the big moments of life are special, it’s also the little things that bring us joy. It’s coming home after work knowing that we get to spend the rest of our night together. It’s taking our nieces and nephew to get ice cream on a Saturday afternoon. It’s going for walks with our dog Ellie and stopping to catch up with neighbors. It’s taking car rides with music playing as we hold hands.
“Allie is the kindest, warmest, and most caring person I have ever met. ” – Michael
About Allie I am a very happy-go-lucky person. I try not to take life too seriously and to appreciate the life I’ve been given. I find joy in daily living and always look for the good in others. I would say I am patient, kind, and loving.
I work with older adults in an adult day healthcare center for patients with Alzheimer’s. My days are never dull and always full of joy. I can truthfully say that I love my job – it is unquestionably my calling.
“My husband is my greatest treasure.” – Allie
About Michael I would describe myself as a loyal, kind, outgoing person. I work hard in business as a pricing analyst, but also love to play hard whether in outdoor adventures or game nights at home.
Another important thing to know about me is that I am an adoptee. I know firsthand the realities of being adopted and raised by someone other than your biological family. While my own adoption was closed, reuniting with my original family has shown me the beauty of openness.
A Home Full of Love
We live in a three-bedroom home in a culturally diverse and family-friendly neighborhood conveniently located near many restaurants, shopping centers, and a top-rated school district. We have a large fenced-in yard for children to safely run and play.
Our neighborhood offers a community pool, a playground, and various walking trails. Everyone in the family is nearby, including both sets of parents who are eager to help with childcare.
Our home is full of love, laughter, and many wonderful memories – we can hardly wait to make new ones with our future child.
We look forward to future vacations as a family of three!
With Heartfelt Gratitude
Thank you for this incredible opportunity to be considered as adoptive parents for your child. Should you choose to make an adoption plan, we look forward to meeting you and determining together what openness looks like for all of us. We want to know the hopes and dreams you have not only for your child, but for yourself, too.
With love and great respect,
Michael & Allie
