Dear Expectant Mother,
We imagine that you’re feeling the same nervousness we felt while writing this and hope that we can provide some comfort. We admire your bravery and selflessness to consider adoption and appreciate you taking the time to explore a little bit about us.
We know in our hearts that God has led us to adoption. Family is the most important thing to us, and we cannot wait to share our love and joy of life with your child. Our traditions, like decorating for Christmas with lights and a tree, baking cookies, and trick-or-treating with our nieces will become even more special as our family grows. We are eager to share activities like Saturday morning at the farmer’s market followed by a stop at the donut shop, days spent at the zoo or baseball game, and making dinner as a family. We love to watch football on Sundays, sometimes never leaving the house!
We promise to fill your child’s life with laughter, adventure, and amazing memories. We will provide a safe and stable home and will fully support and encourage them to pursue their interests and education. We will raise your child to understand right from wrong and teach about generosity and respect. He or she will be hugged and kissed daily and loved unconditionally for their entire life.
We cannot thank you enough for your consideration while making one of the most difficult decisions of your life. We are excited to see what the future holds and look forward to getting to know you.
We met online and instantly connected over competing football teams and our love of family and golf. We love to spend time with family, explore our neighborhood’s parks and restaurants, travel and sightsee, play golf, visit the pool, and explore wherever we are. We both work in corporate offices and enjoy doing more hands-on things in the evening, like cooking dinner and barbecuing together or taking walks after work with our dog through our neighborhood. About six months into our relationship, we both knew that we had met “the one.” About one and a half years later, Kenny surprised Andrea on a trip to Arizona for her birthday by proposing! We had so many great memories from that trip that we decided to have a small wedding in the same location four months later.
We live in a quiet and diverse neighborhood surrounded by several parks, restaurants, schools and churches that are within walking distance. Our home is centrally located between our jobs, a vibrant downtown, and Kenny’s family, which allows us to spend time at home and with our family. Our city is rich with culture and we take full advantage of the museums, sporting events and local treasures. We have a fenced in backyard where we enjoy barbecuing, gardening, and playing with our dog Emmett. Emmett and our cat, Maxwell are extremely friendly and love children. Our neighborhood is the perfect place for a family.
Our Extended Family
We both come from tight-knit families that we genuinely enjoy spending time with. We often host holiday meals at our house, followed by an afternoon of games and laughter. Holidays are even more special for us now that we have three nieces in our family. Both of our families know how much we love children and are extremely supportive of our desire to adopt.
Kenny has two brothers who live about 15 minutes away from us. His dad passed away almost 10 years ago, and his mom lives half-way between us and one brother. Andrea's parents and sister’s family live a few hours away. Although our families live in different parts of the state, we’ve found that our traditions are very similar across both families. We love to get together for birthdays and holidays as well as casual family dinners. We have so much fun taking our nieces to the park and zoo and baking cupcakes with them when they stay with us.
What Led Us To Adoption
From the time we met, we have talked about our dream of raising children, either biologically or through adoption. We know that we have the love to give and share with a child, even though we are unable to have children on our own. We feel anchored in our faith and know that this will provide a constant and safe foundation for our family. We have always felt that God has a good plan for us, and we believe that the child who joins our family is the one who was meant to be there all along. We can't wait to find out who that will be! We are thrilled to be completing our family through adoption!
