Dear Expectant Mother,
How can we begin to express our sincerest respect, love, and amazement for your consideration of our family? What an amazing example of true love. We have wanted to complete our family and have the opportunity to raise a child but knew that could never happen biologically. Thank you for giving us the chance to be the parents we have always wanted to be.
We would be the most loving and supportive parents, passing along family traditions and the cherished memories and experiences we had growing up. We will provide the best education and cultured upbringing. We look forward to being cuddled up in front of our fireplace opening presents, baking cookies, playing on the swing set in our backyard, and teaching your baby how to swim in the lakes where we learned to swim. We cannot wait to go on walks to the parks to play with the neighborhood children, teaching your baby to be a dog parent, going for ice cream on summer days, eating family dinners together, and reading bedtime stories.
Your baby will be in the best of hands and given the life we have always wanted to provide. We can assure you we will give everything necessary to keep your baby safe, and he or she will always be our number one priority. We appreciate the selfless choice you are making to allow our dreams to come true.
We have known each other for over twelve years, have been together since 2013, and got married in October of 2016. We love spending time together and being surrounded by our close friends and family. Kyle works as an Implementation Consultant for a Software as a Service company, and Luke works as a Senior Talent Acquisition Specialist in Medical Device. When we are not working, you can usually find us cooking together every night at home (one of our favorite family traditions) before taking our two dogs for a walk. On the weekends, you can usually find us playing with our dogs, indulging in outdoor activities, working on projects around our house, going on cultural adventures, checking out a sporting event, trying out a new restaurant, or traveling.
We love our Cape Cod-style home that has three bedrooms and two bathrooms and is in one of the top-rated communities in the area, with amazing schools, parks, and hospitals all within walking distance. Our neighborhood is filled with families with young children and pets. Our favorite part of our home is our family room, which opens to the backyard and has three sides of windows to let in all the natural light from outside. We find ourselves spending most of our time in this room watching TV, looking at nature, or reading a book. We love our oversized backyard, which is fenced in for our two dogs, Juju and Kota, who have ample room to play and where we have room to add a playground.
Our Extended Family
We are lucky to both have most of our extended family within close proximity of us. That means we get to spend a lot of time with them. We both are lucky to have older sisters who have been our closest friends our entire lives. (They were our “best women” in our wedding as well.) Both of our families could not be more supportive and excited to take an active part in our child’s life.
We love being able to spend almost all holidays with family, and the day is usually centered around a great meal, with laughter and conversation. In the summer, we can usually be found on the weekends up at one of our family members’ cabins, spending time outside (we do live in Minnesota), being on the lake, and enjoying the opportunity to be together.
One of our favorite traditions is taking a week-long vacation every year with Kyle’s extended family to a destination centered around culture, education experiences, and experiencing the local cuisine. We are so excited to share these traditions and experiences with our child.
What Led Us To Adoption
We both have always known we wanted to have a complete family. Growing up and knowing we were both going to be in a same-sex relationship, we never thought marriage, let alone children, would be an option for us. We thought the best day of our lives was when we had the opportunity to legally get married, but now we have the option to complete the second dream of ours to be parents. We wanted to make sure we were established enough to provide the best life for our child. Now that we are established in our careers, have bought our home, and have planted roots in our community, we are excited to start the next phase of expanding our family.
