We are Mark and Karen from the Netherlands…a small country in northern Europe. We are very honored and thankful that you took the time to learn about our family and for considering us as you make the difficult decision of who will parent your child. Hopefully you will be able to see the love we have for each other, our family and our future child. After struggling with infertility for several years, we learned that we wanted to be parents more than we wanted to be pregnant, which is why we chose to grow our family through adoption. It is really difficult to adopt from the Netherlands because there are only a few adoptions a year. We decided we really want to adopt from the US, since we know the country very well and Karen’s family lives there.
We want your child to always know where he or she came from. You will always be an integral part of his or her life and we plan to raise your child with an understanding and appreciation for you and the sacrifice you made. In 2016, we became parents through the miracle of adoption. We were blessed to bring Robin home. We have loved every moment of being his parents and it’s our biggest wish to become a family of four. There is a lot of love in our hearts we would like to share with another child. More than anything we want you to know that we will love your child unconditionally and we will devote our lives to providing him or her with all the love, security, joy and opportunities we can offer. We will encourage your child to explore all his or her abilities and talents. This child will be loved beyond words by us, our families, and our friends. They will get the same opportunities we have had as children and adults. We admire your love, courage and strength and we hope that you will find us to be all that you wish for your child.
We wish you all the best,
~ Mark, Karen and Robin
