Hi! We are Adam and Leia. We want to thank you so much for taking the time to read our profile.
Firstly, we would like to let you know a little bit about us. We began our relationship many years ago while away at college in Western Oklahoma. Adam was a business major, and I was an education major. We met in myfirst year and Adam’s second there. We dated for some time and then Adam proposed to me in 2004. We married two years later in 2006, after we were both out of school. Since we have been married, We have both held the same jobs. Adam works at a local insurance company as a claims adjuster and I am an elementary school teacher. We live in the Oklahoma City area with our three pets, Rocky, Heidi and Salem. We are very active in our church and our bible study groups there.
So, why are we seeking to adopt? Well, I (Leia) was diagnosed with Turner’s syndrome when I was in high school. I knew then that I wouldn’t conceive on my own. Adam was very supportive of whatever I wished to do, so after being married a couple of years we sought out a fertility specialist. We did our first round of In Vitro and sadly we didn’t end up pregnant. We were devastated and upset. We knew we wanted to have children, so we attended classes to be foster parents. We seemed to be on a dead end road going that route, so I told Adam I was ready to give In Vitro another shot. We were once again disappointed. A couple years later, we finally had a foster care situation but, that didn’t work out the way we planned. We were frustrated, sad, and feeling like failures at this point. We decided to wait a couple of years before we pursued anything else and that brings us to present day.
As you can tell, we have had an extremely bumpy road trying to start our family, but we have trusted in God the whole way and we know it is only because of Him that we are able to be in this situation to adopt a wonderful little blessing to call our very own. We know the decision that you are making is one that is extremely tough and it is one that you are making out of pure love and selflessness. We want you to know that YOU ARE A HERO and It would be such an honor and a privilege to be apart of your little blessings life and we wait for that day with great anticipation. Thanks so much again for reading our profile and we wish you lots of love and peace in this journey.
Adam and Leia
