Dear Expectant Mother,
We are excited and honored that you are considering us to adopt your baby. We have both been looking forward to the opportunity to share our household with a newborn and know we can offer your child unique and special journeys and adventures of a lifetime. Throughout our relationship, we have always looked forward to the moment that we expand our home and have the opportunity to raise a child.
We’re both grateful for the journey you have taken to make an adoption plan and respect your feelings through this challenging experience. We look forward to meeting you and getting to know the mother of our future child. We want to give your child every possible opportunity to grow, learn, and enjoy life in a nurturing, supportive household of unconditional love.
We promise to respect your wishes and give your child the ultimate parents. As we were both adopted ourselves, it is a gift we both want to give to your child. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us, and we look forward to sharing this journey with you.
After we began dating seven years ago, we knew almost immediately we had embarked on a lifelong journey that would eventually include having children. We shared so many similar life experiences, and we even shared a background of being adopted ourselves. We both have successful and fulfilling careers and have lived in California a majority of our lives. James is a faculty member at two major universities and a professional entertainer, and Matthew is the Head of Human Resources and People Operations in corporate entertainment. As we have become uncles to a four-year-old niece and six-month-old nephew, we have become excited about starting our family. We have been blessed to have wonderful family members on both sides encouraging us to take the next steps in growing our own family.
Our home has become a truly magical and peaceful environment. We have had the luck of finding a four-bedroom house in a beautiful area with nearby parks and quality schools. Our house is newly constructed, and we absolutely love our neighbors, backyard, and spacious living area. We have two pugs, Penny and Petey, that are very humorous, friendly, calming, and loving. We love to enjoy the numerous entertainment options available to us nearby, and our neighborhood is filled with growing families to socialize with.
Our Extended Family
At our wedding, it became obvious that our extended family would eventually be a dream group with whom to travel, spend holidays, and celebrate special times with our future children.
James's sister has a four-year-old daughter and six-month-old son, and she very much looks forward to welcoming more children into her life. Matthew's sister is also excited about a new addition to the family. Matthew's cousin is a mother to two children as well and is very excited to contribute and advise our growing family. They will all be excited to watch our child experience life for the first time, delight in a world of journeys and adventures, and share opportunities to celebrate holidays.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have always known we would eventually have kids, and since Matthew was fully adopted and James was adopted on his father's side, it was an easy decision to begin our family with adoption. We are excited to become supportive, nurturing, and amazing parents who share our journey and adventures through life. We will be honored to be parents.
