Shannon & Michael


Hi! We are Mike and Shannon and we are happy you decided to take a glimpse at our family. We have been married for three years and are the proud parents of our son, Mattocks. We both come from big, loving families who are very present in our lives. Between the two of us, we have eight younger siblings! Our parents have been very involved in our son’s life and fill our home with love whenever they visit. Our parents and grandparents have so much love to share with another little one! We are blessed with a tremendously supportive community of friends within our church and local area, many of whom have experienced the blessing of adoption already! This community and our current professions can provide a child with security and stability. Adoption has always been a part of our plan and we are thankful that the Lord has lead us on this journey in the time He has chosen. We can't wait to add another little one to our big, loving family through the blessing of adoption.

We are excited to welcome to our family, a boy or girl, or twins, newborn up to one year old, through open, semi-open or closed adoption.

 
 
 

DEAR EXPECTANT MOTHER


Dear Expectant Mother,

Hello! We are Michael and Shannon - thank you for taking the time to read about our family! We are truly humbled by your courage and strength as you choose adoption for your baby. Even though we haven't met yet, we want you to know how much respect and admiration we have for you as you navigate the difficult decisions ahead. We have been married for just over two years and have always known we wanted a big family. Michael and I knew that we wanted our family to be a combination of adopted and biological children, if the Lord would bless us in this way. We both come from large families and are close with all our siblings. A year into our marriage we welcomed our son and he truly has been a joy to our family. We love to travel and spend time outdoors sailing, hiking and going to the beach. We want you to know that we are praying for you and for your baby. We have had the desire in our hearts to adopt since before we were married. We have planned and dreamed about this time for years and are ready to give our unconditional love to a child and expand our family. It seems surreal that we are finally writing this letter, as we have thought about this moment for a long time. We truly appreciate you taking the time to get to know us better. We want you to know that should you feel that we are the perfect fit for your baby, he or she will grow up knowing the story of the incredible person you are.

Shannon & Michael
