Thank you for taking the time to look at our profile and we greatly appreciate your consideration. We are confident we will give a wonderful life to our first child and can't wait to hold them in our arms!

Our Family Dream

We Can't Wait to Become Parents!

We dream of one day having a home on some land where we can own alpacas, goats, chickens, and maybe even some horses. We hope to have beautiful gardens that we can work in together. Our dream for our child is that they will grow up with a variety of experiences and an adventurous spirit. We hope to teach our child to value knowledge and be curious. We want them to not be afraid to try something new or take on something they don't understand. We anticipate these values will foster their independence while giving them the confidence they need to pursue their dreams. We want our child to be able to go down whichever path they choose and be confident that we are behind them, providing guidance and love along the way. We want to provide them will a childhood that they will be able to look back on and cherish, including their adoption story.

Our Lifestyle

Sunset Walk on the Beach

We are lucky in that both of us have careers that allow us to manage our own schedules and time. Leah owns her own interior design firm and Curtis is a mental health therapist. We have the flexibility to work as many hours as we want during the week and take off when needed. Because of this flexibility, we anticipate needing minimal outside childcare and should be able to split our time at home to take care of our baby.

We hope this lifestyle will be beneficial to us as a family and will allow us to be the primary caretakers of our child. Additionally, we anticipate being able to do more things together as a family as we will have more time to do so compared to traditional families where both parents work jobs with little flexibility.

Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other

At Home With Murphy

Leah About Curtis: I love that Curtis is such a caring and empathetic person. His career truly says it all. He is a mental health therapist, which means he dedicates his life to helping others work through their struggles. This will especially be helpful while raising a child as he will understand any issues that may arise. I also love his independent, adventurous, and hard working spirit. He is always working on something and I know that he looks forward to involving our children in these projects. I have my childhood dollhouse and I know it needs some work to be brought back to life. He has already mentioned the possibility of involving our child in this process so that they can be a part of fixing something that they could then play with and cherish down the road.

Curtis About Leah: I love that Leah is passionate and dedicated. She believes in doing things the right way rather than doing them quickly. She is guided by her morals and what she believes is right. The way she lives and works with others is reflective of her passion to treat everyone with love and respect. I have no doubt that Leah will be our child's greatest champion and support them through anything and everything.

Our House and Neighborhood

Our Home

We live in a relatively quiet and safe suburb in Georgia. There are plenty of families in our neighborhood with children riding bicycles, playing sports, and playing outside up and down the street.

Our Dining Room is Casual & Comfy

Our house is an open floor plan with three bedrooms. We love the skylights and big windows that let in plenty of light as well as the closeness that an open floor plan facilitates. We have a nearly finished basement that we are working on turning into an exercise and play room for our future children.

There are numerous fantastic parks within just a few minutes of where we live. We visit the park whenever we have an opportunity and enjoy walking our dog through the plentiful wooded paths. We look forward to having a child to take to play on the large playgrounds. We are members of a nearby pool and also live within 30 minutes of a large lake.

Our Extended Families

Curtis' Family

Our families are close and involved. Both sets of parents live a few hours away, but that does not stop us from getting together frequently. We meet up for holidays, important events, special occasions, and family vacations. In the next few months we will be traveling to a condo at the beach with Curtis' parents, brother, and sister-in-law for what has become a family tradition.

Leah's Family

When we get together with our families we like to eat, play card games, or go to events. Both Leah's and Curtis' moms love to cook and the rest of us like to eat.

Our family is unique because we put a lot of effort into maintaining close relationships and spending time with each other. We made the difficult decision to move a few hours away for work opportunities while the majority of our extended family lives very close to each other. Because we aren't as close as we would like to be we are intentional about spending time together and organizing opportunities.

From Us to You

We are so excited that you are considering adoption for your child. We aren't sure what journey brought you to this point and we imagine you have been faced with difficult decisions. Regardless of what has brought you here, we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking the time to view our profile. We hope that sharing a little about us and the life we envision for our child will help you in this time of decision making. We have done our best to communicate who we are through our profile and we hope we have adequately portrayed our enthusiasm and dedication to adoption.

We met in college and have been together for ten years now. We have been married for six of those years. We don't want to paint the perfect picture; marriage is hard sometimes, but we handle it well and are intentional about resolving conflict. After six years of marriage, we feel like we are even stronger than ever. We know that raising a child will come with its own struggles, but we feel that we have the tools and the knowledge to handle them.

We have known for a long time that adoption would most likely be a part of our life story, and we can't wait to be holding our baby in our arms. We promise that our child will be loved no matter what. We promise to raise them with gentle and caring spirits and to offer them guidance in their lives. We promise to make their adoption story known from the beginning and to offer a stable home environment. We promise to provide the best childhood and the best life that we are able to offer.

We will send letters and pictures to the birth parents and would absolutely love for there to be more contact and possibly future visits. We want our child to be fully aware of their entire adoption story and where they come from. We would love for the adoptive parents to be involved in their lives in some way, but we completely understand that there are all sorts of situations and sometimes this isn't possible.

We can offer a loving and stable family with a large extended family of support behind us. Since we both work flexible jobs where we can set our own hours, we hope to offer both financial stability as well as a stay at home atmosphere. We don't anticipate using much childcare. Instead, we plan on splitting time during the week at home to take care of our child ourselves.

We hope that our children will learn the value of a balanced life that includes hard work but also plenty of time with family and friends and doing things they enjoy. We want them to see the importance of having fun and following their passions. Our dream is for them to be fearless and take any challenges head on.

We can't wait to be parents. We have always loved children and are eager to start our own family. We are beyond excited to go on adventures with them as well as spend quiet evenings at home as a family. This is the beginning of our next adventure and we thank you for taking the time to consider being a part of it.

We would love for you to be a part of our life story and our child's life story.
