Name: Ann and Becky
Profession: Ann is a middle school special education teacher of 18 years. Becky is a Quality Assurance Technician for a food production company.
Family: We have a daughter named Dakota who is 8 years old. She is creative, funny, eager to learn, and super excited at the prospect of being a big sister. Her father is very involved in her life and he would like to be equally involved if we are fortunate enough to be blessed by adoption. We are very close to our families and they have been a vital part in Dakota’s upbringing. There are great grandparents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and loads of cousins.
Pets: We have two dogs, Wendy and Cleo. Wendy is a 10 year old beagle mix and Cleo is a year and a half terrier mix. They were both adopted from shelters and are great with kids.
Hobbies: Together as a family we enjoy going to the park, the zoo, arcades, playing board games, family dinners, and movie nights at home. Ann enjoys cooking, baking, playing golf (not well), watching sports, and spending time with Dakota. Becky enjoys jogging, UK sports, Bengals football, hiking, playing golf, working in the yard, and being silly with Dakota.
Adoption statement: We are Ann and Becky and we want you to know how much we respect and admire your courage during this journey. We have wanted to grow our family for a while and after two years of unsuccessful fertility treatments it was put on our heart to adopt. We love being parents and have so much more love to give. We are grateful that you have chosen to give your child life and we are humbled by your selfless attitude and the sacrifice you are making on behalf of your child. What love you must have for your precious one. We are blessed to have you consider us to be the loving parents of your child.
