Dear Expectant Parent,

Hello and thank you for taking the time to read our story! We are Brandon and Makayla and we are from the great state of Wyoming! The first thing that you need to know is that we are an adventurous family and our lifelong dream has been to raise a child and grow our family! We personally feel that adoption is the path for our family and are so excited to share our story.

Our adventure began when Makayla was in high school and Brandon was working in the oilfields. We met through our mutual best friends and we have been inseparable ever since our first meeting 6 years ago! When Makayla graduated she moved in with Brandon and our life began from there.

Makayla pursued her education online and also worked her way up in the financial industry. Brandon pursued work in the oilfield and worked his way up through different companies along the way. Makayla now works in the insurance field and loves the flexibility she has through a variety of different companies, including the option to work from home. Brandon is a supervisor in the natural gas field and has a job where he is able to be home every evening and on weekends. Our jobs provide financial security and flexibility for our future children.

We live in one of the most beautiful places in the nation! The small town that we live in is the perfect place for children. We both grew up in a small town about 2 hours away where most of our families and friends still live. The town that we live in has a population of 2,000 people. We live in an area surrounded by mountains and mountain lakes. There are over 1,300 lakes in our small mountain town! We also have a ski area, which is just outside of town and we plan to teach our children to ski and snowboard. Our small town boasts one of the finest aquatic centers in the state that is designed for children to learn and grow from tiny toddlers to high school swimmers. There are several parks and always activities in the community for growing children. The school district in our town is ranked #2 in the state, education is very important to us and it is essential our child is given every opportunity to succeed.

We have a large beautiful log home that houses our fur babies. We have 2 cats and 3 dogs who are our pride and joy. Makayla grew up riding horses from before she can remember and has passed on this passion to Brandon. Our horses are also our fur babies and are a huge part of our life. We spend the summers riding and camping with them and then in the fall we use them for hunting season. We both grew up hunting and it has always been an important part of providing for our family. We are so excited to teach our children about the values of hunting. During the summer and winter we are always outside and we are always spending time outdoors having as much fun as possible.

There is so much that we can share about our lives and plans for our future children, we would love to talk with you more and learn more about your values and hopes and dreams for your baby. We can’t begin to understand the situation that you may be in. Adoption is beautiful, but it is also very painful. There are no words to describe your strength and selflessness in creating an adoption plan for your child. It warms our hearts to know that our child will have more than one loving family that cares about them so deeply. We want to make sure they know the sacrifice that was made for them and that they know their full story. Adoption will not define our child, but it will be a huge part of who they are. We will send pictures and letters and keep open to visits and communication. Thank you for reading a little about us and thank you for considering our family to become a part of your family.
