Steve and Libby
Thank you for looking at our story. And thank you for considering becoming part of our story in such a meaningful way.
We can only imagine all the thoughts going through your mind as you think about the future you want for your child and the difficult decision ahead of you. We cannot presume to know what you are feeling. We can only assure you a child entrusted to us would experience unconditional love and wonderful opportunities.
We do not have children right now. We tried to become pregnant, but it didn’t happen for us. It was disappointing but not discouraging. We embrace adoption whole-heartedly. And there is no doubt in our mind that a child who came to us through adoption would be no less our child than one we conceived.
We both work at the same major nonprofit. Steve directs communications and tells emotional stories about the children, families and individuals that the nonprofit helps. Libby manages programs that help low-income families buy their first home and become more economically successful. We are both determined to make a difference.
In addition, we are both artists. Steve is a filmmaker and author. Libby is a musician and plays bass in two bands.
We live in Royal Oak in a modest home on a very nice street. We know our neighbors very well. In fact, we led the neighborhood association. When we walk the two blocks to Steve’s mom’s house, we greet so many of our neighbors by name. We walk by the playground where Steve helped teach his niece to walk. She is now a ballerina.
Libby’s parents live about two miles away. We see them every Sunday for dinner and board games.
Our love for each other and our love of family are the very core of our lives. We have many friends, and we consider them to be extended family. They are an incredibly diverse group of people. We’ve shared with them our hopes for adoption. Many have already adopted children themselves. Our family and friends are excited for us and excited for the chance to be part of our child’s life, when he or she arrives.
We are strong believers in open adoption, although if you wanted otherwise for your own reasons, we would certainly respect your wishes. We feel it is important for children to know and respect where they came from. It is a fundamental part of their identity.
Please know that the child will be welcomed into our family and community with open arms and will be surrounded by love. We will focus on the child's needs and do everything possible to ensure that the child leads a life of love, wonder, joy, opportunity and success.
This is our introduction to you. Of course, you can learn much more about us by asking to review our Home Study. And we would be glad to answer any other questions you might have.
