dear expectant mother

We know it takes a great deal of courage and love to choose adoption for your baby, and we are grateful to you for considering us as prospective parents. We know this can be a difficult and emotional time, and we want to be there for you should you want additional support. We are in this journey together and will be alongside you throughout the whole process. Adding your baby as a member of our family would truly be a blessing.

We look forward to providing him or her with a loving, caring home to live in. We are surrounded by a strong community of friends and family who will include your baby as a member of their family. Education is very important to both of us, and we will provide the best education possible for your child. We also think it is important to be involved in activities and sports, and we will get him or her involved in whatever activities they are interested in.

Throughout our journey as a couple, we have always known we wanted children to be a part of our family. We cannot begin to explain how grateful we are to you for thinking of us as prospective parents. Our promise to you is that we will love your baby more than anything. We want to thank you again for your selflessness and courageousness in choosing adoption for your baby. We look forward to starting this journey together.

About Us

We met on the first day of college and became fast friends. Our friendship grew deeper over the years. After college, Amber moved to live with Meaghan, and the friendship we had for all those years grew into a relationship. We have a very loving and committed relationship and have been together for fourteen years. This past summer we were married in a small, intimate ceremony surrounded by our family and friends. We both work as managers at the same real estate title company and have worked side by side as a team for much of our relationship. We both enjoy traveling and have traveled throughout much of the United States and a few foreign countries. When we are not traveling, we both enjoy spending time with our families and friends. In the past few years, we have also become committed to fundraising for cancer research and have volunteered and walked in several events.

Our Home

We recently purchased a five-bedroom, four-bathroom townhome knowing we wanted to expand our family soon. Our home is located a block from a park with lots of fields to play in as well as swing sets and playground equipment to play on. We live in a suburb outside of a large city and are close to great museums, parks, and lots of activities. We have a dog named Lucy, who loves to run and play catch. Lucy is a cockapoo who is very sweet and loving, and she is great around children.

Our Extended Family

For all the major holidays, our family spends the day together. Christmas especially has always been a big holiday for our families. On Christmas Eve, we all wear Christmas pajamas and have dinner with our immediate families and then talk and watch Christmas movies together. On Christmas Day, we get together with our extended families, including our aunts, uncles, and cousins, and have brunch and dinner together. We spend the entire day as a family enjoying everyone’s company.

We also travel quite often with our immediate family. One of our favorite places to go is Disney World. Meaghan has been traveling with her family to Disney World since she was young, and Amber has been going since we met. Traveling has always been a big part of our family, and we are so excited to add another family member to join us on our journeys.

Our families are very supportive of our decision to adopt. Our moms are both very active in our lives and are excited to have a grandchild added to the family. We both lost our dads to cancer in the past few years, but we know they are looking down on us and watching over our journey.

What Led Us To Adoption

When we started talking about growing our family, we knew adoption was the path we wanted to choose. One of our close friends adopted her first child, and we have seen the love grow between them over the past few years. Watching them strengthened our conviction that adoption was what would be best for our family. We know adoption will give us the opportunity to raise a child in a warm, loving home and will complete our family.
