David and Marit
We want to thank you for taking the time to read our letter and for getting to know a little about us. We know that you have an amazing love for your child and incredible strength and courage. We hope after reading our story, you will choose us to be a part of your child’s life.
Describe your childhood (adoptive mom & adoptive dad):
Happy and very structured.
A bit confusing with death of Father at age 12, but otherwise, I have a very supportive family and I learned to adjust. It was my experiences when I was young that made me into the person I am today.

How did you meet?
What was your relationship with your parents like (adoptive mom & adoptive dad)?
I lived with my mother until I turned 16 then moved in with my father after staying in Norway for a year. My mother was caring and loving but strict at times. Dad too was caring and loving, but not as strict. He was always the fun parent, but still knew how to be the best father. He taught me the importance of education, family and always striving to be the best that I could be.
As I said, my father passed when I was 12, so I didn't get to know him as well as I would have liked. However, my relationship with my mom became stronger after that and we still talk and share frequently. My Step-Dad is a good man and takes good care of her. I couldn't ask for more than that.
What attracted you to each other?
Please describe your personalities (adoptive mom & adoptive dad):
I am organized, friendly, introverted, outgoing, humble, clean, neat, bubbly, happy, easy going, loving, caring, independent, patient, faithful , loyal and love to laugh.
Extrovert, love to make others laugh, consistent, reliable, put other's needs in front of my own, creative, thinker, independent, easy to get along with and a loyal friend.
What are your hobbies (please share those you enjoy as individuals and those you enjoy as a couple):
Skiing, beach, movies, hiking, knitting, reading, computer, traveling, theatre, concerts, shopping and baking.
Snowboarding, beach, hiking, scuba diving, tinkering in the garage, traveling, theatre, concerts. The fact is we spend most of our time together, so we tend to either participate in the same activities, or are willing to watch the other while they take part in the fun.
When you close your eyes and see yourself holding your precious baby in your arms what are your thoughts regarding the birthmother?
How will a child enrich your life?
Why did you each choose the career path you decided on?
I started out on a path in criminal justice because I wanted to be a parole or probation officer. However, the year I graduated, our county went bankrupt. Since I didn’t want to work outside the county I decided to return to school for a paralegal degree. I worked as a paralegal for about 7 years before I left law to work with my father in property management and to work in retail. It was a great move for me. It became less work and stress and more money. I have been working both for over 10 years and enjoy doing both a great deal.
I started out in my youth in the military. I wound up going to university as a major in English and then added Human Resource Management later. I was on track for a career path with a fitness center as a Fitness Manager, but felt compelled to return to the military after September 11, 2001. Once I returned to the military I found that everything I had done in the past would benefit me as a recruiter for the military. I know I had a lot to offer younger soldiers, so I stayed with the military until I retired in 2011. Now, I am going to school because the military is paying for my Doctorate degree. I am certain that I will return to helping younger people to improve their lives as I had before, in whatever capacity I can…teacher, counselor, advisor, etc…
