Dear Expectant Mother,
Thank you so much for opening up your heart to prospective parents like us. We respect and admire you more than these simple words can convey. As you embark on this journey, we hope you will consider us to share it with you.
If you were to choose us, we hope that you will find reassurance in what we do know for sure. We will provide your baby with a safe, loving home full of laughter and learning. We promise to teach your child to value the humanity in everyone, to practice kindness and receive it in turn. We promise that he or she will be cherished by two grateful fathers, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and many cousins. We promise that we will work hard to raise your child to his or her full potential.
We know that love is not just a word or a feeling, but an action. Your selfless consideration of adoptive parents for your baby is an example of that. If you choose us, we want your child to know your story, to understand the generosity, compassion, and strength that led to us becoming a family.
Thank you for reading about us! We hope to meet you, get to know you, and express our gratitude to you for this opportunity to grow our family.
Our relationship is anchored by unconditional love, humor, and commitment. We look forward to coming home to one another every day. We’re two of the calmest people you’ll ever meet, though we do have many moments of silliness and passionate conversation. As professionals in the education field, we value curiosity and diversity, and we try our best to be good global citizens and community members.
We appreciate travel. Our interest in other cultures has been part of our relationship from the beginning and has led us to explore a number of places around the country and the world. One of the best parts of traveling is how it teaches us to appreciate the comfort and stability of home. This has led us to become nesters in a way, with our home improvement projects, gardening, and cooking.
Our house is usually filled with the smell of something sweet or savory. Sometimes both. We live in an established, vibrant neighborhood not far from the center of the city. Our street is generally quiet, with a mix of young families and older residents. Down the street from our home is an old-fashioned ice cream parlor (that tempts us way too often) and a bicycle shop. A five-minute walk in the other direction takes us to the community center, a local playground, and an A-rated elementary school. In the back of our cozy bungalow, we also have a big yard where we like to spend time with our friends and family.
Our Extended Family
We are fortunate to have a large family nearby. Brandon's grandfather and mother, as well as his younger brother and his family, live in neighboring towns. Viet’s parents live in the same city with his older sister and her family.
Brandon’s father and Viet’s two younger siblings live in other states, which provides more opportunities for travel. Also, with a niece and four nephews between us, we’ve had lots of good practice with diapers, naptime stories, and playdays! Along with supportive family members, we have close friends that are integral parts of our lives. We spend many traditional holidays with both sides of our family, and our home has become a hub for our yearly “Friendsgiving” and Tet (Vietnamese New Year) celebrations that include our friends as well.
What Led Us To Adoption
Raising a family has always been important to us. Since our first date six years ago, we’ve talked about wanting to be fathers. Now, going into our third year of marriage, we are ready to welcome a baby into our lives. We are excited to nurture a child and share all the love that we have to give.
