Dear Expectant Mother,
We know this is a difficult decision for you, and we want to assure you that your child will be cherished and loved. It’s a blessing that you have chosen to give your child a place to call home, and we hope we can provide that home for your child.
We look forward to your child reaching milestones as a toddler, to the time when your child is in middle school and wants new clothes in the latest styles, to your child getting ready to graduate from high school and thanking us for all or our support throughout their life, and to them graduating from college and then having kids of their own someday.
Finally, we want to leave you with this: Choosing us as your child’s parents would be the greatest blessing that we could ever ask for. We pray that in making the choice of where your child should be placed, you would greatly consider how much love our family would provide. Your child would be raised in a home full of love from not only us but all of our family members as well. We look forward to hearing from you and appreciate you once again for considering us.
Anthony is an administrative assistant/accounting representative at a hotel, and Zhongwei is a sales specialist at a high-end clothing store. We originally met online on a dating website back in early 2014. From the first time we talked on WeChat, we began speaking every day. Anthony visited China in September 2015 as a way for us to have a vacation together as a couple. It was then that we realized we were meant for each other. In January 2016 Anthony said to Zhongwei, “Why don’t we get married? We can’t picture ourselves with anyone else, so why don’t we commit ourselves to each other?” So on January 24, 2016, we got married. It has been an amazing adventure as a married couple, and we can’t wait to share this adventure with a new member of our family.
We have a warm and inviting home with amenities like a fenced in swimming pool and playground. We spend a lot of time at the pool. So your child would learn to swim at an early age. We would take your child to the swing set and swing right along with him or her. We have a cat that we spoil all the time. Every time we visit the pet store we always have to pick out something new. Once we walk in they know our names right away. They ask what are we going to get our cat today. Our cat has so many toys that he doesn’t know which one to play with.
Our Extended Family
Anthony has a traditional Catholic upbringing, and Zhongwei is nonreligious. Your child would go to Mass with Anthony till he or she could decide for themselves what they wanted to believe. One nice thing about having a mix of cultures between the two of us is that your child would get to experience so much diversity. We have the traditional big Christmas where your child would open gifts from all of Anthony’s family members, and then we celebrate Chinese New Year, so your child would get to experience the dancing and feasts of this important Chinese holiday. Your child would grow up experiencing the best of both traditions.
Anthony is Italian/Irish and his mom, dad, sister, brother, grandmother, and grandfather lives in Pennsylvania where he originally grew up. They all live within 5 miles of each other. When your child would go to Pennsylvania it would be easy to see all at once. Zhongwei is Chinese and his brother, sister, mom and dad all live within 10 miles of each other. When your child would visit China everyone would already be gathered to meet since this is the typical way of visiting.
Each member of our family is excited to teach, love, and encourage our child our family values. Your child would definitely enjoy our cultures as it is full of love and excitement.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have always seen how happy families are when they take their kids on vacation or are simply out doing activities with them and said to ourselves, “Why not us?” We love each other so much, yet we both feel something is missing in our family. Several discussions later, we realized that having a child would complete what we’re missing. Nothing could compare to how much we would love and cherish a child. We now walk down the street and say to ourselves, “That will be us one day.” We will always remember the person who gave us the chance to complete our family and will never hide from our child that he or she has a loving mother.
