Dear Expectant Mother,
Our hearts are filled with excitement and emotion because we can only begin to imagine how many lives will change through your courage and selfless decision of adoption. We would like to express our admiration for your strength and would be honored to be considered as a family for your child.
Through this letter, it’s our hope that we provide a picture of what life with our family would be like for your baby. The first day we met, we spent hours getting to know each other, talking about our family and our future. One thing we quickly realized was our dream of having children and the work it would take for us to fulfill it. Today, we look back almost 11 years and see how far we have come and how much we have grown as a couple and individuals.
We have an incredible and supportive family that cannot wait for us to have children. We want you to know that by choosing us, your child will be raised in a family-centered environment with many cousins to play with and where grandparents, aunts, and uncles will play a major part in their life. Your child will also have someone to confide in when it comes to adoption because Freddy’s family has adoption in their background. Overall, we hope that you can find some comfort in knowing that we will provide for and unconditionally love your child with everything in us.
We met over 10 years ago through a mutual friend and have been inseparable ever since. Our professional careers allow us to have a great work-life balance, where we are able to spend quality time with each other and our family. Freddy is an HR professional, and Homer is an information governance advisor—both at large financial firms. When we aren’t with family, we enjoy taking road trips and vacations, hiking, camping, playing tennis, and attending concerts. Freddy was born and raised in a small town in the Texas hill country and comes from a family of six, one of whom is adopted. Homer grew up in a small town in West Texas and eventually made his way to San Antonio, where he attended college and started his professional career. We’ve established a loving relationship over the years and are anxious to extend that love to a family of our own.
We recently moved to a new home in a suburb of a Texas city to live closer to both of our families. It is centrally located and is just a short drive to the lake, theme park, or basketball arena. (Yes, we are big fans!) Our home is in a gated community with a spacious living/kitchen area, three bedrooms, and a fenced-in backyard that we enjoy with our three loving and energetic dogs—Zoe, Pierre, and Xena. Our neighborhood always has kids riding bikes and couples walking dogs and is located in one of the top school districts in the area.
Our Extended Family
Our family is unique, extremely close, and involved. Family means everything to us, and we spend most of our weekends and holidays with them. Christmas, Thanksgiving, and New Year’s are holidays we always spend together with both our families. We cook, play board games, and have movie nights with the family. During Christmas, we have a longstanding tradition of making tamales at Freddy’s mother’s house, which includes an assembly line of kids and adults of all ages. Freddy’s siblings are all close in age and live within 20 minutes of each other.
Homer has a 10-year difference between his three older siblings and him and his twin sister. We take family vacations with Homer’s family as often as we can and know our new addition will enjoy his or her cousins, aunts, and uncles as much as we do. We both enjoy spending quality time with our nieces and nephews—whether we are attending sporting events, picking them up for a day at the zoo, or celebrating all of their birthdays.
What Led Us To Adoption
Having kids was a question that was easily answered the first day we met. We both share the common thread of being uncles at an early age and felt our nurturing of children would someday go beyond our nieces and nephews. We’ve conquered several milestones in the past decade together, and having a family of our own would be the most rewarding experience we look forward too thus far. Being godparents to three of our nieces and nephews has been the closest we have gotten to being parents. We are most excited to feel the unconditional and indescribable love that parents speak of.
