Dear Expectant Mother,
First, let us thank you for taking the time to consider adoption and for taking the time to read our letter. We are honored and blessed to even be considered to raise your child. Thank you for taking the time to look into our profile! We must say that making the jump into adoption can be daunting on both sides. With that being said, we think you are very brave making this decision.
We are ready to burst with anticipation at the thought of raising a child. What creates most of this excitement is building memories, with one another and with family and friends. Coming from tight-knit families, we have always known that children would be in our future. We have great bonds with our parents and yearn to have the same relationship with our own child. Since having children naturally isn’t in the cards for us, we know adoption is our future. With some heartfelt conversations between us, we know that any child brought into our home would be so loved and so cherished. We have a strong relationship together and know that we will make a great team in raising a child.
We are Colleen and Logan, and we have been happily married for around seven years. We consider each other to be one another’s best friend as well as being romantic partners. Marriage is always a work in progress, of course, but we have enjoyed growing and maturing both as a couple and as individuals throughout the last seven years. We consider ourselves to both be pretty down to earth and sensible, with a strong moral center. We enjoy spending time with one another by taking our dog to the park, going for a jog through the neighborhood, playing cards, or watching movies at home. We also love to get together with our extended family and their kids for bonfires.
We have a two-story, four-bedroom colonial house in a suburb about 20 minutes outside of a fairly large major city. We are about two blocks from a large park with two playgrounds, tennis courts, baseball fields, and open fields. Our yard and the park are perfect for throwing a football or baseball around. We are big proponents of children remaining active. We also have Ari, our dog, to help with that mission. Ari is a German Shepherd, and he also used to be Logan’s partner at work. He loves running around and chasing his toys and loves kids. Ari and Logan were always the go-to K9 team when it came to scheduling events with children at schools.
Our Extended Family
We are both products of a tight-knit family. Logan comes from a family of three boys, of which he is the youngest, and Colleen comes from a family of three girls, of which she is the oldest. We remain geographically close to Colleen’s side of the family, mostly because Logan moved a distance away when he took his current job before meeting Colleen. We have both grown to not take time with family for granted. We routinely schedule time with Colleen’s sisters, our niece and nephew, and her parents, normally for dinner and perhaps a movie or watching a local sporting event on TV.
Colleen’s extended family is very large, so a very welcome tradition is annual events in which the entire family gets together. Normally, the kids go off and play games and run around while the adults catch up and carry on with one another. Every time, the kids leave ready to fall asleep on the ride home, and they always have a blast. We can’t wait to add another kid to that mix!
Logan’s family, while spread out across the country, is equally as supportive and can’t wait to spend time with our child. One takeaway from both of our families: Our bond is strong, and there isn’t much we wouldn’t do for one another.
What Led Us To Adoption
Our dream as a family is to love, cherish, and raise a great kid, and we both believe that this would be our greatest accomplishment in life. Although we have not been able to conceive naturally, we don’t see this as preventing us from being awesome parents. We can’t wait to share treasured moments with a child, to go on all kind of adventures with him or her, and to create very special memories that last a lifetime.
