Dear Expectant Mother,
We would like to start by saying thank you for considering us as the potential adoptive parents for this baby. We are humbled that you are taking the time to learn about us as you decide who you want to raise this child and hope to exceed your expectations regarding the kind of family you are searching for.
You will always have our respect for the decisions you have made on your journey and our unending gratitude if you decide to make our greatest dream come true.
You can rest assured that we will unconditionally love, nurture, and support this child throughout its life. Not only are we ready to bring this child into our lives, but future grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends are excitedly waiting for us to bring home a new family member as well. We are part of a large, close-knit family, that spends a lot of time with each other.
If you choose us as this child’s adoptive parents he/she will have our love and support in every way possible, and will be afforded every opportunity that we can provide. We genuinely thank you for your consideration of us and hope that you will feel free to ask us any question, no matter how big or small it may seem.
We have been married for 3 ½ years, but have been together for over 5 years. We met in medical school, and fell in love almost instantly. We both enjoy running, and have completed marathons around the country together. We both enjoy travel and love seeing new places. Alex played soccer through college, and still plays in a local league. Chance is a Psychiatrist, and Alex is an Emergency Medicine/Pediatric Emergency Medicine Physician. We enjoy spending time together, including playing with our dogs, cooking, going to the movies, and going to local festivals.
We live in a spacious 3 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom home in an historic neighborhood of our city. We have a large, fenced in yard that even has a fresh citrus tree. It’s walkable to many restaurants and shops. We’re only a few blocks away from an historic street car line and the Mardi Gras Parade Route. We have one wonderfully lazy English Bulldog named Atlas.
Our Extended Family
We are very close to both of our families, and spend as much time with them as possible, including holidays. Alex is the youngest of 4 children, but one of his sisters passed away from complications from Cerebral Palsy when he was in high school. Family holidays always involve a home cooked feast prepared by his mom, and spending the day playing games at the table. His other sister lives in Manhattan working for an advertising agency, and the rest of his family lives in Columbus, OH. He has two nieces aged 9 and 5. We are very close and talk on the phone a few times a week, and fly to see each other as often as we can. Chance is the youngest of three children. He has four nieces and nephews ranging in ages from 15 to 3. All of his family lives in Texas in the same town. Both of his siblings are in the medical field, his brother a family physician and his sister an emergency nurse practitioner. His family spends most of their time together, including annual trips to Florida.
What Led Us To Adoption
As a couple that cannot have biological children, we feel that part of our purpose is to open our loving and stable family to a child that needs us. Both individually and separately we have wanted to be parents for years. With friends and families having children of their own, it has intensified our desire to grow our family. Now that we are in the right place both personally and professionally, we have made the decision to adopt.
