Dear Expectant Mother,
We cannot express our gratitude for your selfless act, and it is a blessing that you are considering us to raise your baby. We promise to unconditionally love and support your baby as he or she grows into his or her being. We will instill a love for learning, adventure, exploration, and kindness. We will be devoted to raising your child to be self-assured, resilient, playful, and independent. Your child will grow to develop passions and interests of their own and the ability to be imtpactful.
Our daily lives will include sit-down dinners with home-cooked meals, playtime, and working on homework together when your little one enters grade school. On weekends, we will start the morning with a hearty breakfast. In the spring, your little one will go on hikes and camping with us; in the summer, he or she will go to swimming classes; in the fall, we will go to the zoo and children’s museum; and in the winter, we’ll go to the snow parks.
We look forward to your little one being surrounded by many cousins, grandparents, aunts, and uncles. They cannot wait to meet the baby, and we cannot wait to shift our focus to being devoted parents.
We hope to soon make a connection and to develop a relationship with you. Thank you for getting to know us. Your child will always know of your selfless act, and our deepest gratitude to be a part of his or her life.
Our story seems to have typical beginnings but a not-so-typical 12-year-long journey along the way. We had our first date at Starbucks and talked nonstop. In an instant, it turned from friendship to something more, and we have been together ever since. Two very different people, coming from two very different cultures—yet joined by the bonds of love and mutual respect. An electrical engineer who leads a team of engineers toward innovation—that’s Britta. And an investment analyst who also sees clients in the evening as a therapist part time—meet Loc. Britta grew up in Germany and moved to California for work, and Loc was born all the way across the globe in Vietnam and was raised in California. Our marriage stands on shared values of honesty, trust, and, above all, gratitude to the universe for bringing us and our families together.
The three-bedroom, two-bathroom townhouse-style condo we own is a welcoming place. It’s our home we adore. It’s our home we dote on. It’s our home we come every day to with a smile and gratitude. The arrival of a child can only elevate such a blessing. Think parks. Schools. Playgrounds. Community. Family. Friends. And above all, think of a neighborhood filled with sheer happiness. Yes, your child will have a nursery. Yes, there will be family and friends who’ll be invited. After all, how can we not share such a blessing with others in our community? It’s always time to bake some bread together and break it together too. Sharing smiles has only produced more of them for us.
Our Extended Family
Family is where life begins and love never ends. Dinners, barbecues, birthdays, brunches, celebrations, cheers, travels, and, of course, unconditional support—where do we even start? Our multicultural families avail us with so many opportunities to be with them and let us continue to harvest even more laughs together.
Loc has five sisters and one brother, and Britta has two brothers. Loc’s mom and one of Loc’s sisters are just a five-minute drive away. Add a few minutes more for some more family members. Others are across the pond, but our love finds a way through technology to always be around.
We frequently reunite to share our traditions. Anniversaries? Britta’s parents just had their 50th wedding anniversary! Thanksgiving? Add a rib roast to that traditional turkey and potatoes with the local Turkey Trot before the festivities. Christmas? Yes, there is always a Secret Santa and the Santa Run. Oh, and why not use oven mitts to open our gifts! There are joyful quirks, but they make our family so precious. Nieces, nephews, laughter, and love—we can’t wait to share these all with your child and your child with them all.
What Led Us To Adoption
We believe true love multiplies when shared, and we can’t think of a better way to cherish our joy than to welcome a child. Our extended family members—some of them adopted, some of them biracial—have always been instrumental in shaping our belief in this love. This amazing voyage we started more than a decade ago has always hinged upon our desire to start a family. Adoption was always something we talked about. Your child will be showered by not just our unconditional love and commitment but also the warmth and company of countless folks: 21 cousins, 5 aunts, 3 uncles, and so many of our diverse group of friends. We want to grow together, thrive together, and bloom together with your child.
