We are Maddie & Kyle!

Your baby deserves to know the unending love, safety and joy of a family. We cannot wait to give it to them. We have been married for nearly 7 years (and together for much longer than that!). There is so much love between us, and we know that giving that love to a child is the next chapter of our story. We’d love for you to be a part of it.

Letter to birth mother

Life is an unfolding story. The chapter we’re in isn’t the end — there is so much left to come. For our story, we know that the next chapter is about becoming a family. But, as with every good story, there were unexpected twists and turns. We have not been able to start a family biologically.

Your story, like ours, has probably had some unplanned twists and turns. You’ve become pregnant unexpectedly, and we can’t imagine how challenging that must be. It’s probably not a chapter of the story you saw coming, and certainly not one you asked for.

What if our two stories, and the challenges neither of us asked for, could come together to create something beautiful?

We would love nothing more than to welcome your baby into our family. We believe that every child deserves to know the protection, love and joy of a family. And we believe that every woman considering adoption — like you — deserves to be encouraged, respected and supported.

The truth is that we don’t know what the remaining chapters of our story hold. Will we adopt fast, or will it take a long time? Will you want an open adoption (like we do) so that you, also, become a part of our lives? What will the baby look like? What limitless potential does their young life hold?

We do know this: Our love for this child is already unending. Our love and respect for you, wherever you are, is already strong — we pray for you daily. And the future of this story is going to be beautiful.

We once read that, “you don’t yet know everyone who will love you.”

We think about this often when we think of our future children — and when we think of you.

We didn’t think it would be a challenge to have children biologically. You never asked for an unwanted pregnancy. And while these situations are hard, they create an opportunity to find new love.

That’s what we believe, and that’s why we cannot wait to adopt. If you take a look at our profile and you believe we could be the right parents for your baby, please reach out to us. You can click the link below, and we’ll talk as soon as we can.

Regardless of whether you contact us or not, we hope you are well. We hope you are safe and healthy. We hope you, and your baby, have a bright future, full of more and more love.

-Maddie and Kyle

Our Hopes for Adoption

Our greatest hope is to have a fully open adoption relationship. We understand how beneficial open adoption is for the child, and we also know that it can make a big impact on your life as you move forward with your adoption decision.

Luckily, our life is full of role models in open adoption relationships. We have many friends who are adoptive parents in open adoptions. In their lives, we see how beautiful these relationships can be. We also see how there are varying levels of openness, and we are committed to doing what makes you the most comfortable.

Some people think open adoption is weird or too challenging, but that’s just not the case. The traditional “nuclear family” is one way of doing things, but it’s not the only way. Open adoption is a unique, but beautiful, family structure. At the end of the day, it simply means there are more people in the world who love this child. And that’s amazing.

What does it mean to be parents?

Being parents, to us, means joy and love. Children are a wonderful gift. Our responsibility to them is to encourage, protect and care for them in a way that helps them grow and thrive.

When we dream of what this will look like, we think of the first time they’ll roll over, crawl and walk. We think of moments playing in the nursery and bedtime stories. We think of peaceful mornings together in the living room — listening to (and playing!) music with a fire in the background. We think of basketball games in the driveway and soccer in the backyard. We think of laughter — so much laughter! — filling the air.

Of course, we know there’s the stuff that’s not as fun. The sleepless nights, the scraped knees, messes, the emotions of growing up. All of that will come too, and we welcome it all.

We are so excited about being parents and everything it will bring. It’s all a part of the journey.

How has adoption affected you personally?

Adoption has already affected us in many deep and personal ways. It is a part of our families and friend groups. We have friends who are adopted. We have friends who are adoptive parents. And we have friends who are birth mothers. Adoption is all over our lives.

More than that, Kyle’s entire career has focused on working with adoption. It’s been one of the greatest joys of his life. Because of that, we have spent a lot of time thinking about, reading about, learning about and supporting adoption.

This is important because it means we are going into this with eyes wide-open. We know that becoming parents through adoption isn’t always going to be easy. But, we also know the immense joy adoption can bring, and we have experienced personally how it can create a better future.

Our Professional life

Maddie has spent her entire career working with children, first as a nanny and now as a preschool teacher. She is passionate about providing a safe, loving environment where children are able to grow and thrive.

In her work, Maddie has learned so much about early childhood development. Her work has shaped how we will approach being parents, from the way we will teach, to how we will respond to challenging behavior, to our ideas on encouraging cultural diversity and uniqueness, and more.

Kyle is a writer and content manager for a marketing agency. He studied journalism in college because he believes that telling good stories can make the world a better place. With that degree, he found his way into the field of nonprofits, specifically working with adoption.

In his first job, Kyle worked for a group that helped families afford adoption, provided medical care for children overseas, and educated parents on how to help adopted children heal and thrive. Now, he manages online content for a marketing agency that works with adoption agencies, family law attorneys and other adoption-related professionals. He hopes to spend his whole career working with adoption and telling good stories that change lives for the better.
