Dear Expectant Mother,
We are so ecstatic you are reading our letter. We hope this will give you a good feel for who we are and how we live our life. We vow to give your child a life full of love, support, and opportunities. Please know we will be here to support you in any way we can, should you need it. We are so humbled to know you may choose us, and we will be deeply honored to be a part of your journey.
The most important things in life aren’t material possessions. It’s family, being kind, loving others, and living in faith. Our style of parenting starts with loving a child unconditionally and providing them a firm foundation of nurturing and security. We are so thrilled about the many things we will get to teach, the values we will instill, and all of the amazing adventures we will share! We feel it’s very important to show our children how hard work will help them to achieve their goals and to always have a sense of humor when things get tough.
We understand the search for adoptive parents must be a tough decision, and we are in gratitude for your consideration. We cannot begin to imagine the emotions that you are facing. We admire you, we think you are incredibly brave, and full of courage. Your child will always know of your love, bravery, and sacrifice. We are excited to hear from you. We wish you many blessings on your adoption journey.
In the summer of 2011, Dean invited Brynlee to a family outing. We went to a local farm, where we picked strawberries and had ice cream. After that, we were inseparable. We married in July 2012, creating our blended family. We are proud parents of three 13-year-olds. Together, we own and operate an aircraft maintenance shop. Dean is the head aircraft mechanic, and Brynlee helps with the billing and paperwork. In our free time, we enjoy visiting family and friends, traveling, camping, playing games, attending music concerts, sporting events, plays, going to the movies, and participating in various community activities. We are so thrilled at the thought of including your child in our favorite activities!
We live on an island located in Washington State. We own a spacious yet cozy four-bedroom home. We have a fully fenced backyard, where we have planted a flower and vegetable garden. We are located on the corner of a quiet cul-de-sac, directly across the street from the elementary school. Our neighborhood is filled with loving families and lots of children. Our community is more like a big family, rather than strangers living within the same zip code. We feel very fortunate to have such a strong support system. We can’t wait to include your child in our community dinners, to attend local plays, and to go on evening walks through town. We have an adorable Shih Tzu named Binx. He loves to snuggle, play fetch, and go on walks.
Our Extended Family
We both come from large families, and for the most part, they live within a two-hour drive. We love being able to see them on a regular basis. Having family with children nearby allows for great memories to be built. We meet for fun activities, we visit Seattle, we go camping, and we take road trips. Plus, with five sets of grandparents and great-grandparents, there is a lot of excitement to have another grandchild to spoil.
We have been able to create a lot of lasting traditions with our families. Brynlee’s family has several gatherings throughout the year. Everyone gathers together, plays games, and shares memorable stories. On Dean’s side, each summer we all gather at his grandparents’ home in Eastern Washington. We bring together as many extended family members as you can draw on a family tree.
We really look forward to growing our family and cannot wait for that time to come. We will be forever grateful, to have the opportunity to welcome your child into our family. We would be delighted to expand our family with you and yours.
What Led Us To Adoption
We are both very passionate about adoption. While we were dating, we both expressed our desire to adopt, so for us, it was an easy decision. We are happy and love the life we share together, but we very much want to grow our family! We both grew up in adoptive families, so we know what it means to be loved and accepted. We have seen the miracle and joy that adoption is. We feel it’s a huge privilege and honor to become adoptive parents. We will gladly accept all responsibilities for your child, with the utmost respect and commitment.
