Dear Birthmother,

Thank you so much for considering us and reading our profile. Our names are James and Amy. We've been married for four years. We tried fertility treatment after fertility treatment to conceive. Unfortunately, Amy struggles with unexplained infertility.

We know we are called to adopt. James is a wonderful dad, and Amy is a mother without a baby. We would love to learn more about you. If you feel we are the right fit, then what a blessing it will be!

About Us

We met each other in the 7th grade and instantly became great friends. We decided to start dating after many failed attempts with other people. We knew during our first date that we wanted to get married and have children together. James is an auto tech teacher. Amy is an instructional specialist at an elementary school, and primarily works with students in kindergarten and first grade.

We love to travel. James and Amy enjoy going on cruises. We collect Christmas ornaments from everywhere we go. We also like attending baseball games. Amy loves to read and James loves to work on project cars.

James has an 11-year-old son, Micah, from a previous relationship. Micah does not live with us, but we spend holidays and special occasions together. He is a sweet boy and has always wanted to be a big brother. Micah plays very well with other children and makes friends easily. Any child we adopt will be loved unconditionally by Micah. He can't wait to be a big brother!

Our Home

We live in a wonderful golf course community. We have a large two-story home with a swing set ready to be played on! Our neighborhood is made up of several ethnicities. It is incredibly safe and well maintained. The schools in our area are among some of the best in our state! We live within 30 minutes of museums, the zoo and art galleries. We already have the nursery planned! If we have a girl, we plan to have pink and frilly decor. If we have a boy, we plan to have a super hero theme.

Our Extended Family

We are family oriented. James has an older brother and 3 older sisters, along with many nieces and nephews. Amy has one sister who lives close to us. Amy has two nephews and one niece.

The most special people to us are our parents. We are so blessed because our parents live within 20 minutes of our home. James is very close to his mom and spends time with her as often as he can. Amy’s parents are very active and love spending time with their grandchildren. We attend the same church and we spend several days a week together. Both of our parents are very supportive and loving.

Our Family Traditions

We celebrate Christmas multiple times during December with both sides of the family. Every year we have a huge Christmas weekend with Amy's sister and her kids, her parents and close relatives. We call our get-together "Russell Family Christmas." We have custom t-shirts made and we have a blast as a family.

Every week we spend time with our closest friends. They come to our house for dinner and game night. We’ve all gotten to be so close that we consider each other family.

What Led Us To Adoption

When we knew we could not have children, we knew we were called to adopt. We have a loving home and want to complete our family.
