Maggie & Bill

Maggie and Bill are waiting to welcome a child into their heart and home through open adoption. Learn more about them!

Hi, we are Maggie, Bill, & Ella. Thank you for taking the time to consider our profile.

For many years we have hoped to bring another child into our family and share our love. This is an uncertain time for us as adoptive parents and for you as a birth mother. There are so many questions and different things to worry about. Your choice of adoption is both courageous and inspirational. Our promise to you is to respect you and your decision and raise your baby with love, openness, and honesty. We believe that all people should be treated with kindness and compassion and want to instill those values in our children.

Our priority as parents is to love and support our children and ensure that they are happy and proud of who they are. As you decide which family is right for your child, we hope you will consider us and are happy to answer any questions you have about our family and our parenting. We will be forever thankful to you for your trust and the opportunity to add to our family.

Kearin and Keith are waiting to welcome a child into their heart and home through open adoption. Learn more about them!

Dear Birth Family, 

We cannot even begin to imagine the emotions you are feeling. Please know that we appreciate you considering us as a loving family for your baby. We have such a great amount of admiration and respect for you and for your decision to choose adoption.

Our journey to adoption began two years after our son Weston was born. We had dreams of expanding our family but suffered two late miscarriages in the process. It was with time and a great amount of reflection that we realized that we were being guided down a different path. Kearin’s Grandma, Keith’s Aunt, our Godson, friends of ours and friends of Weston’s are all adopted. Adoption holds a very special place in our hearts and has been a defining part in the lives of some of those we love most!

It is extremely important to us that your child knows his/her roots and the amazing sacrifice that you made. Your child will always know that your decision was the most selfless act in the world. We created this book as a way for you to see if we would be a good match for you and the future you envision for your child. We hope that we have conveyed to you our sincere belief that your child will always be a precious gift entrusted to our loving care.

With love and gratitude,

Kearin & Keith

Meet Olivia!

My name is Olivia Bus and I am a graduate student pursuing a master’s degree in social work. In order to graduate, all students must participate in an internship at a social services agency, so I am excited to be completing my internship at Holt-Sunny Ridge. I have been talking about wanting an internship at Holt Sunny Ridge since August 2016, so this has been a long time in the making. I am very happy to be at Holt-Sunny Ridge and have been learning so much about all of the programs offered by our branch.

Halloween Placement Party!

The Saturday before Halloween, twelve adoptive families came to Holt Sunny Ridge for the Halloween Placement Party. There were twelve of the cutest babies in the most adorable costumes — the youngest was only 3 months old. We had a little Minnie Mouse, Boo from Monster’s Inc., and even an R2D2 just to name a few!
