We have been praying for you and this child for a long time.
There are so many words that come to mind when we think of you: selfless, brave, loving, strong, compassionate, self-sacrificing....and the list goes on and on. Where do we begin to express how these words describe you? We stand in awe and genuine admiration and respect as we think of you and your circumstances. We have been praying for you and this child for a long time. We know this has to be one of, if not the most, difficult decisions that you have or will ever have to make. We are grateful that you will entrust us to raise your child. Thank you for considering us. Thank you for believing in us to raise a precious gift.
We tried for years to have a child of our own, yet the Lord had different plans.
We have a heart for adoption.
We see adoption as one of the greatest blessings. We see it as an ultimate act of generosity and sacrifice by you. We dreamt of having a big family, full of kids running around, full of controlled chaos. We tried for years to have a child of our own, yet the Lord had different plans. Hayes was diagnosed with endometriosis at the age of 36, underwent surgery, and thought that would be the cure for us to get pregnant. We were not able to conceive on our own. We were told of many other ways to help us conceive (IVF, surrogates, etc.) however, we felt the call to adopt. We have a heart for adoption. We see adoption as a way to share the many blessings that God has bestowed upon us. We believe that where much is given, much is expected. What an honor and a privilege it would be for us to raise your child.
We are rooted firm in our love for Jesus and our faith is very important to us.
Hayes tells everyone that she knew she would marry Stefan the moment she first laid eyes on him... He claims it took him a tad longer to decide if Hayes was the one. We worked for the same company and were strategically set up on a blind date at our Christmas party. Our matchmaker worked especially hard to make sure that we sat by each other at dinner at that party... and well, the rest is history. Hayes was living in Texas, and Stefan in Austria so our dating period consisted of living on two separate continents flying back and forth and back and forth from Texas to Austria. We both knew that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together, so we were engaged just three months after dating, married ten months after meeting, and have been married for five years as of October 2021. And what a blessed journey it has been. Hayes jokes that it took a while to find Stefan as she was a tad older of a bride, but she says it was so worth the wait. We found ourselves as newlyweds living in London as we could both work from there, still for the same company. We had the time of our lives in England, but a new opportunity quickly arose for Stefan in Texas, so we packed up to set up camp and have been putting down roots here ever since. Stefan truly does believe everything is bigger and better in Texas. Stefan thrived in his new job in the States, and Hayes took some time off as we were hopeful to start a family. We are soul mates. We are best friends, and we can't imagine our lives without each other. The Lord truly knew what He was doing when He orchestrated our paths crossing. We are rooted firm in our love for Jesus and our faith is very important to us. We are very family oriented so much of our time is spent with our family members as we love to have fun with those who are nearest and dearest. We are social and adventurous, and Stefan likes to say that there is never a dull moment with Hayes always up to something!
