Dear Expectant Mother,
We are extremely honored and humbled that you are considering us as potential parents for your child. Thank you from the bottom of our heart for reading our letter. We admire your selfless act in choosing to have this child and in wanting to give him or her the best opportunities in the world. Entrusting your child to be raised by someone else takes an incredible amount of strength, and we understand how difficult this decision must be for you. We hope that you find comfort in knowing that, if you choose us as adoptive parents, your child will be cherished and loved every day.
Becoming adoptive parents to a child would mean the world to us. It has been something that we have dreamed of and enthusiastically discussed throughout our relationship. If you choose us, we can promise to provide a caring, nurturing, safe, stable, active, and joyful home for your precious child. Our home will always be full of love and laughter. Know that you will always have a place in our hearts and in our family.
We have been married for five wonderful years are incredibly excited to continue our journey by adopting a child. Thank you again for considering us as adoptive parents.
We met at a rock climbing gym in 2009 and we each knew that we found the one. Our relationship stemmed from our passions for nature, the outdoors, animals, and the importance of family. We both come from warm, loving, and nurturing homes where we thrived and grew to be trustworthy and caring individuals. We married in 2012 and we are a two-dog household.
Keely works in Quality Assurance in the biotechnology industry and Anique directs programs at a rock climbing gym. We live in a fantastically beautiful region full of amazing peaks and trails. Needless to say, our hobbies include trail running, navigation races, hiking, skiing and snowboarding, climbing, and traveling. When our legs are tired or we just want have a chill day at home, we love to play games with family and friends and cook together.
We have lived in our house for seven years. It sits at the end of a cul-de-sac with easy access to shopping, schools, and parks. The area we call home is very progressive and welcoming to all residents. We enjoy spending summer evenings BBQ-ing in our large fenced backyard. We have two super cute dogs. One is a year old and the other is ten. The favorite part of their average day includes a walk at the beach, trail runs, neighborhood strolls, and the always delicious treats.
Our Extended Family
Anique has one brother. Her brother and his wife are expecting a new baby this coming summer. They live in a neighboring suburb near where Anique’s parents live. The family has a vacation house in Oregon where we visit frequently to go skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking, trail running, shopping, and eating. Evenings at the Oregon house include playing games, watching movies, or putting puzzles together as a family.
Keely has one brother. Her brother and his wife live nearby, as do her parents. Family time includes walking on local trails, visiting the dog park with our dogs, and going out to eat at local restaurants. We often go to the zoo as a family and strive to take an annual family vacation once a year.
Spending time with our family during the week has a special importance for us, and we strive to connect with our parents and siblings at least once a week for dinner. Several of our friends have children and we take great joy in being their cheerleaders on the sidelines of their soccer games or at their plays.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have always wanted to start a family and provide a loving home to a child. Our plan was always to adopt a child and attempt to conceive a child through a fertility program. From the beginning of our relationship, we have worked diligently to be able to provide a safe home and environment in which to raise a child. We both attempted to conceive through fertility programs but were unable to conceive through these methods. We are now ready to embark on our adoption journey.
