Dear Expectant Mother,
It’s an honor to write to you and share our lives and hearts with you. We can’t imagine what you’re going through, and we want to thank you for giving us this opportunity to get to know you. It takes bravery, courage, and strength to consider us to raise your beautiful baby.
We hope you will give us a chance to raise your child and provide the best possible life we can offer. Sasha understands what it means to be adopted and she is truly grateful; she couldn’t be happier with the life she was granted, and we want you to know the decision you’re considering will always be treated with respect. Joanna has learned so much from Sasha about adoption and how beautiful it is. As a birth mother, your love for your child is so deep. Thank you for considering placing your child with us.
If we are chosen to raise your child, it would be our greatest joy, honor, and blessing.
Our names are Joanna and Sasha. We met at the YMCA gym about five years ago; Joanna was supposed to meet her sister-in-law, who had also invited Sasha. We were immediately drawn to each other, and after the first date, we knew we were meant for each other; we’ve been married for four years, since! We have a committed and dedicated marriage and a lasting love for each other. We respect one another’s goals and dreams, we make a great team, and we have a beautiful partnership. We opened a school for children with autism and provide services and therapies designed for each student to get the best learning experience. We genuinely have a vested interest in children’s lives and being positive role models for them.
Our home is a single story with three bedrooms, a library, two-and-a-half bathrooms, and a swimming pool. After saving up, we built our home in 2016 and found the perfect layout to raise our family. We love animals, especially dogs, and while we don’t have any furbabies now, we look forward to having a family-friendly dog to raise with our child. It’ll be exciting to have a family pet that can make amazing memories with our family.
Our Extended Family
Sasha was adopted at the age of two and grew up with her two sisters and her parents, who have been married for 33 years. Joanna grew up with eight brothers, and she’s the only girl. Her parents have been married for 45 years. We have been fortunate to see lasting and committed relationships and want to provide that security to our family as well.
We enjoy spending time with our parents and siblings, making memories we all cherish. It’s a tradition to decorate for Halloween, Fall, Thanksgiving, and Christmas each year, as those are our favorite holidays to celebrate and truly spend time with family and friends. We also enjoy the annual Fourth of July firework display, which we can watch from the park in our neighborhood. We look forward to having a little one join our family and traditions.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have desired to become parents for several years and wanted to provide the best life we can for our family. As our adoption journey began, we were in the process of becoming foster-care licensed and wanted to foster-adopt, but we knew that it would hurt so much if we bonded with a child and circumstances prevented us from adopting. Sasha was adopted, so it was easy to decide adoption is the best option for us to start our family. We want to be able to provide the best experience for a child if we are given the opportunity.
