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 hearts, 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 you find comfort in knowing that, if you choose us as adoptive parents, your child will be cherished and loved every day.
Becoming parents would mean the world to us. It has been something 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, and you can know that you will always have a place in our hearts and in our family.
We have been married for six wonderful years are incredibly excited to continue our journey by adopting a child. Thank you again for considering us as parents.
We met at a rock climbing gym in 2009, and our relationship blossomed thanks to 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. Currently, Keely works in Quality Assurance, in the biotechnology industry, and Anique directs programs at a rock climbing gym. We live in a beautiful region full of scenic mountains, beaches, lush forests, and city centers. Our hobbies include trail running, navigation races, hiking, skiing and snowboarding, climbing, and traveling. When we are not out exploring outside, we love to hang out at home, play with our puppies, play games, spend time with family and friends, cook together, and visit local shops and restaurants.
We have lived in our house for eight 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, as well as with our two super cute dogs. The favorite part of their average day includes a walk at the beach, trail runs, neighborhood strolls, play dates with their puppy friends, and the always-delicious treats.
Our Extended Family
Anique has one brother, and he and his wife have a baby girl. They live in a neighboring suburb, close to Anique’s mom. His family has a vacation house in Oregon, which 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 who, along with his wife, live nearby; her parents are close, too! 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 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, as well, 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, and we always had adoption in our hearts alongside conceiving through fertility programs. However, fertility was not to be for either of us, so adoption has become the only vision to create the family of our dreams. 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, and we are now ready to embark on our adoption journey.
