Dear Expectant Mother,
Words don’t seem like enough to express how grateful we are for you taking the time to consider us as potential adoptive parents. We can only imagine how hard this decision must be for you, and we admire your bravery and selflessness to consider adoption.
Family is the most important thing to us and we cannot wait to share our love and joy of life with a child. We are eager to share activities like taking our dog, Emmett, on walks around the neighborhood and to the park, Saturday morning trips to the farmer’s market followed by a stop at the donut shop by our house, or days at the zoo or baseball game. Our traditions will become even more special as our family grows. We love traditions such as hiding Easter eggs, driving around looking at Christmas lights, baking cookies, and trick-or-treating with Kenny’s family. We love to watch football on Sundays.
We promise to fill a child’s life with joy, adventure, and amazing memories. We will provide a safe home and we will fully support and encourage an adopted child to pursue his or her interests. We believe in seeing the best in people and will raise a child to understand right from wrong. We will teach him or her about generosity and respect. We want to give a child a childhood similar to our own, which were filled with love, happiness, and stability.
We are excited to see what the future holds, and we look forward to getting to know you better during this process if you choose us. We will provide a safe home and fully support and encourage an adopted child to pursue his or her interests and education.
We met online and instantly connected over our love of football, family, and golf. We love to travel and go sightseeing, hiking, and golfing. We love visiting the pool, trying new restaurants, and just exploring wherever we are. About six months into our relationship, we both knew that we each had met “the one.” About one and a half years later, Kenny surprised Andrea on a trip to the Southwest for her birthday by proposing! We had so many great memories from the trip that we decided to have a small wedding in the same location four months later.
Our home is in a quiet neighborhood surrounded by several parks, restaurants, schools, and churches that are within walking distance. We have two bedrooms, one-and-a-half baths, and a large office that provides us with plenty of space. We also have a fenced-in backyard where we enjoy barbecuing and gardening while our dog, Emmett, runs around. Emmett and our cat, Maxwell, are extremely friendly and love being around adults and children.
Our Extended Family
We genuinely enjoy spending time with our families and often host holiday dinners at our house. Holidays are even more special for us now that we have nieces on both sides of our family. Both of our families know how much we love children are so supportive of our desire to adopt.
Family is important to both of us and we are very close to our parents and siblings. Kenny has two brothers who live about 15 minutes away from us. His dad passed away eight years ago and his mom recently moved to be closer to all of us. Andrea's parents only live a few hours away and her sister's family is currently two hours away. Although our families live in different parts of the state, we’ve found that our traditions are very similar. We like to get together with each side for birthdays and holidays, as well as casual family dinners.
What Led Us To Adoption
From the time we met, we have talked about our dream of having a family and 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 biological children of our own. Growing up, Kenny’s closest cousin was adopted as an infant, and as adults, we have several friends who have recently adopted. Through all of these experiences, we have seen the positive impact adoption has had on each of these families. We have always believed 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 so excited to complete our family through adoption!
