Our Vision

We are thrilled to expand our family through open adoption again because we want our children to grow up knowing they are loved by you and us. We are excited about getting to know you and welcoming you and your baby into our lives as part of our loving family. We want to provide our children with a family life based on healthy and loving relationships and a home filled with joy and lots of laughter. We feel we have a lot to offer our children and will give them the opportunity to get a good education and grow up to be happy and successful in their lives. We can’t wait to help with homework, teach them to ride a bike, play catch in the yard, attend their school functions, go swimming at the pool on hot summer days, build sand castles at the beach and watch them open gifts at Christmas!

Henry (by Dirk)

Henry is a handsome, romantic man with a very big heart. He is known by others as the one who will go the extra mile for his friends, family and me. He has an excellent work ethic, charitable spirit and strong moral compass. Henry loves going to the movies, playing tennis, downloading and listening to music, road trips, cruising the world by ship, and playing games on the Wii. He is a warm and loving papa to our daughter Cameron. Since her birth, Henry has enjoyed being a STAY-AT-HOME DAD and will continue in this role when our next child arrives. He looks forward to experiencing the baby milestones again from the first smile to the first step!

Dirk (by Henry)

Dirk is an outgoing, honest, caring and loyal person. Prior to his current job as a judge for the federal government, Dirk was a Naval Officer who served aboard submarines. Away from work, Dirk enjoys playing and watching sports, especially his alma mater, North Carolina State University. He has a great sense of humor and is fun to be around. He is also a fantastic father to our daughter Cameron. He loves playing, singing, and teaching her new things. His favorite part of the day is giving Cameron a bath then reading her a bedtime story each night. He can’t wait to rock our new little one to sleep, and he also looks forward to taking our children to football games in the fall and baseball games in the spring!

Our Story

We met ten years ago and felt an immediate connection between us as we discovered we shared similar values and goals. Soon after, we realized we had found our lifelong partner and soul mate. Through the years we have built a strong, stable, loving, funfilled and supportive relationship - one with a strong spiritual foundation. In 2006, Dirk proposed to Henry in the romantic city of Venice, Italy. A year later, we were married in a beautiful outdoor ceremony on the water. Our dream has always been to raise a large family together and live each day to its fullest. We can't wait to welcome the newest addition to our family. Cameron is our very energetic, kind, loving, funny, and curious daughter who loves hosting tea parties, taking ballet, playing tennis and singing in cherub choir at church. Cameron came into our lives in October 2008 through our first adoption with Independent Adoption Center. We have a positive, healthy relationship with her birthmother who we stay in touch with regularly. We recognize the importance of the relationships we have with our siblings and thus we look forward to adding another child to our family so our children can play and bond as they grow older together.
