ABOUT US

Hello. We are Ashley and Brendan Smock. We have been happily married since August 6, 2010. Ashley is a Manager at a Community College and Brendan is a Shipping/Receiving Specialist at a chemical factory. We have two dogs (one Shiba Inu and one Saint Dane), one cat and a turtle. After trying to conceive for 10 years without success, we are hoping to adopt an infant from expectant parents who are choosing to make the ultimate selfless act of adoption for our dream finally become a reality.

 

A LETTER FROM US

Dear Expectant Parents,

First, we would like to thank you so much for taking the time out to consider us as adoptive parents for your infant. We cannot even begin to understand what you are going through and how you are feeling. We admire the strength, courage and compassion you must have to make these kinds of decisions. What we can tell you is that we would love your newborn more than we could ever explain...
