Waylyn & Janette

Dear Birthmother:

First let us thank you for considering us in what must be the most difficult decision you have to make.  We realize just how much you love your baby to be making such a sacrifice.  The miracle of adoption has blessed us with our son Cole and we anxiously await a second little miracle.  We hope this letter will help give you a little insight into who we are in order to aid in your decision.

We are Waylyn and Janette.  We knew we had something special together from the start.  We are very compatible and therefore enjoy all our time together.  Our upbringings had a lot of similarities; and as a result and a tribute to our parents we both learned to be responsible, hard working, loyal, honest, polite and caring adults.  We were also both raised in the church and have a strong spiritual relationship with the Lord, which gives us a foundation to rely on when faced with the many challenges of raising a child in today’s world.

Janette about Waylyn:
Getting married and having a family has been my dream since I was a teenager.  Equally  important was to marry my soul mate, which I found in Waylyn.  He is a wonderful Christina man and husband and I am so blessed to be married to him.  He has so many qualities which make him easy to love, a wonderful disposition, is very responsible, thoughtful, kind and caring.  He is a wonderful father and example to his children.  He has a successful career working for a large company for 20 years, which more than adequately provides for our family.  Waylyn has endless energy; whatever needs to be done he is right on it.  He loves the outdoors; taking care of the lawn & landscape, camping and backpacking.  Adoption has allowed a dream of raising a family together to come true.  It is wonderful, rewarding and fulfilling.

Waylyn about Janette:
Janette has such a warm personality and a very down to earth demeanor.  I appreciate so much Janette’s loving nature and her ability to make me feel wanted and accepted.  I have also come to appreciate her ability to remain calm in any situation.  She serves as a great example of patience and forbearance.  We are truly best friends in every aspect and we enjoy spending our time together in all kinds of activities such as swimming and walks in park.  Janette also is an avid collector of Raggedy Ann dolls and materials.  Janette left a very successful career to become a stay at home mom for our children a few years ago and I feel this act speaks so much for her caring unselfish nature.

Our Family:
The baby will have an older sister, Elizabeth (17), a brother, Ben (15), who are Waylyn’s children from a previous marriage, and another brother Cole born in April 2005.  The baby will also have one set of Great Grandparents, 2 Grandmothers, 1 Grandfather, 5 sets of Aunts and Uncles, 18 cousins and we could still go on.  We are both very close with our families and in-laws and enjoy the time we get to spend with them.  We also are very involved in our church and have a large network of friends that are active in our lives.  Both our family and friends are very supportive and look forward to another addition and look forward to another addition to our family.

Our Home:
We have a beautiful spacious two story home in a wonderful family-oriented neighborhood.  We are on a cul-de-sac with lots of young children ranging in ages.  We have a pool and an oversized backyard more than big enough for playing just about any type of game.  We also have a great park with trails, picnic areas, playgrounds, and athletic fields just outside the neighborhood and the elementary school is just down the street along with another park.

We will provide a child with a warm, loving, nurturing home, see to their health and educational needs, give them the opportunities to pursue their interests and talents, and support them to become the person they are meant to be.  We pray there is a child out there meant to be ours and when the time is right God will bring us together.

Thank you for taking the time to read our profile.  We hope that we can help you fulfill your desire to find a loving family for your child.  Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

Waylyn and Janette
