Ryan & Mindy

Dear Friend,

Thank you for taking the time to learn about our family and for considering us as you make the difficult decision of who will parent your child. We honor your courage and strength and we pray that God’s peace fills your heart during this time. We have always felt called to adopt. It has been on our hearts since before we were married and now the time has come to bring our missing piece home.

A Little About Us and Our Home

We live in southern California with our three children. Ryan works in healthcare administration and Mindy is blessed to be a stay-at-home mom. We are actively involved in several ministries within our church and we love that it feels like a second home to our family. Some of our favorite things to do include going for walks, hiking, swimming, exploring new places, playing at the park, serving others together, and spending time with family and friends. We also love staying home and playing in the back yard, playing board games, or having Pizza Movie Night.

Our home is full of unconditional love and unending giggles. We believe in positive parenting, which involves understanding, guidance, and providing alternatives to poor behavior. Our children are incredibly sweet and loving to one another and they are excited to welcome a new sibling. We already love and pray for this little child that will someday be a cherished member of our family.

About Ryan, by Mindy

Ryan is my rock. He keeps me grounded while still supporting and encouraging my dreams and ambitions. He brings me coffee in bed every morning. He is a hard worker and a wonderful provider for our family. The kids and I never have to do without because of Ryan’s commitment to make sure we are always cared for. He guards my heart and makes me feel safe and protected. He is very introspective and prayerful and is constantly looking for ways to improve himself so that he can be a better dad and husband. My husband is a godly man who seeks the Lord and strives to lead a life that is pleasing to Him. Also, he is such a blast to be around. He loves doing anything with our kids from helping with math homework to building Lego masterpieces to dressing up and going to a tea party. I could not have chosen a better life partner and father for my children.

About Mindy, by Ryan

Mindy brings out the fun side of everybody around her. She is so enthusiastic that she can make even dull tasks fun. I am prone to being a little introverted but Mindy and her excitable personality helps me to get out and live life fully. Mindy is also one of the most intelligent people I know. She can remember details and facts so effortlessly and she is definitely the planner in our relationship. Mindy is very encouraging and has a special talent for building people up so they feel good about themselves. She is a mentor, coach, and parent to our current and future children. I know her talents will help our whole family to succeed.

Our Promise to You

We will always celebrate our child’s heritage and respect their origins. This precious child will grow up knowing how much selfless love it took for you to choose life and adoption. We will speak of you lovingly and openly and we look forward to including you in our child’s life to the extent that you are comfortable. We promise that the unconditional love we pour out to our child will also be shown to you. We love you already!

Thank you again for reading this letter and for considering our family. We know that you want the absolute best for your child and we pray you will find us to be all that you hope for.

Sincerely,

Ryan and Mindy
