Dear Expectant Mother,
We want to begin by thanking you for considering us to be the parents to your child. We understand that the adoption process is emotional and difficult for you as a mother. If you choose us, we want to make you a few promises so you know that your child will be given a life full of love.
1. We want to promise that your child will have a life surrounded by family. They will have not only us as their parents but three great-grandparents, three grandparents, multiple aunts and uncles, and many cousins.
2. We promise your child will grow up in a home that emphasizes learning. Learning is not something we feel happens just in school but is something we do every day. We love to look at every life experience as one we can learn from. We cannot wait to instill that love for learning in a child.
3. The child will also grow up in a home full of experiences. In our home, we encourage one another to try new things. This could be anything from trying a sport, trying new food, or going on an adventure to see a new place.
4. Our last and most important promise to you is that your child will grow up in a home full of love. Adopting a child is something we have been wanting for a long time, and we are beyond excited at the opportunity. Know that your child will know what love is every second of every day.
We have been together for over four years. We have been married just under one year. We are two educators who have a passion for many things in life. One of the greatest passions that we share is a love for sports, both playing and watching them. Oftentimes you will see us outdoors being active running, walking, playing tennis, or playing volleyball. Another big passion of ours is our love of trying new experiences. Together we have traveled to Europe and to other states within the U.S. Anytime we travel, our biggest love is learning. We learn about the history, the culture, the food, and so much more. We simply enjoy learning new things and spending time with one another. These are just a few reasons we love being together and cannot wait to share our love with a child.
Our home is nestled in a cul-de-sac that is part of a quiet and friendly subdivision. We live in a beautiful three-bedroom, two-bathroom ranch house. There are many things we love about our home, but one of our favorite things is the yard. We have an open yard where our nieces and nephews spend a great deal of time running around, playing sports, and making memories. We also love the location of our home, only a few miles away from a lake with great trails to walk, fun playgrounds, and beaches for swimming. Our home is our favorite place to be, and we cannot wait to have a child to share it with.
Our Extended Family
We both have large, supportive families, and they are excited for us as we begin our journey to start our family. We are beyond blessed to have the support of our families. We cannot wait to bring a child into our family to enjoy our many family traditions.
Jake’s immediate family includes his parents, his sister, and his brother and his family. One of Jake and Brian’s favorite traditions with Jake’s family is Thanksgiving. Every year Jake’s parents host Thanksgiving for their extended family. It is a time filled with laughter, smiles, and great food.
Brian comes from a large family that includes his dad, five brothers, five sisters, four nieces, and three nephews. Some of our favorite traditions are getting together for birthday and holiday parties. The parties occur almost every other month, and the homes are filled with so much joy and laughter as we talk and celebrate. We cannot wait to host a birthday party at our home for our child.
What Led Us To Adoption
There are many things that brought us to adoption, but our desire to create our own family is the main reason. We both come from loving and caring families. After growing up with a great deal of love, we want to raise a child so they also know the meaning of love and family. Being a parent is something that we both have always wanted. Once we both found each other and made a commitment to be with each other, we knew it was time for us to add a child to our family.
