Waiting Parents: Will and Mindy

Hi! We are Will and Mindy.  Thank you for taking the time to hear our story. We recognize the choice you are making is the most difficult decision a woman could make. We are in awe of your incredible courage, strength, honesty and most of all, the love you have for your child. We would be deeply honored to be considered as adoptive parents entrusted with the responsibility to love and care for your child.

We knew each other for almost a year before we started dating. Mindy was playing hard to get! But as soon as we started dating, we found ourselves married in less than five months in August 2011! We have now been married for a little over 9 years. As a husband, he makes it his duty to compliment me at least once a day. As a wife, I nag him to exercise and eat well but make sure to reward him with kisses. We definitely have lots of fun with each other. Rarely does a day go by without at least a dozen smiles or laughs.

We knew we were going to have a family, but wanted to make sure we could provide a very safe and stable home.  Once we did we started trying having kids about 6 years ago and then IVF a couple of years later.   After several years of infertility treatments the doctors revealed continued treatments were no longer an option.  But that didn’t stop us.  We had long decided before to make adoption a part of growing our family.  We are ready to be parents and have so much love to give!

Will is a big teddy bear who is the carefree artistic type but very much structured in how he approaches things. Expect him to teach the baby about music, sports the art of folding clothes! I tend to be more cautious in how I approach things. Health and fitness with a little silliness is more my expertise. We both love to travel and enjoy experiencing outdoor activities. If we can, we try to bring our two dogs with us whoever we go. You would love them! One is old and calm and the other is more lively and young, but both are great with people and kids.

Our hard work over the years have paid off and we now own our own health & wellness business.  We are fortunate that it gives us the time and flexibility to focus on what really matters, family.  “Never take anything or anyone for granted” is a mantra that we take seriously.  We would never take each other, you and most of all the gift of a child ever for granted. Please know we will always remember your decision and your courage to make your child a part of a family.
