Dear Expectant Mother,
We are excited at the prospect of connecting with you after taking time to consider us to adopt your baby! We feel the greatest gift we can give another human is the gift of love and providing someone the chance at an amazing life filled with many wonderful memories and traditions. Hopefully, after reading our profile, you can see we have been provided very privileged lives by way of our family, friends, careers, etc. We feel extremely fortunate to be where we are in our lives today, and we could not get there without the love and support of so many! We cannot wait to provide the same opportunities for our child.
We understand the decision to choose the right family is a difficult one, and we cannot thank you enough for considering us! We know we have the love and dedication to create a beautiful life for a child, and we look forward to the prospect of doing so. We also look forward to introducing your child to an immediate and extended family (and friends) that will positively influence and play a pivotal role in shaping your child’s life.
Please know that by choosing us, we will commit to providing your child with a very stable and happy life and will provide every possible opportunity we can! We consider connecting with you to be part of our fate in this process and look forward to what lies ahead!
Our lives are filled with a lot of laughter and fun moments with each other, and our family and friends! We met in 2016 and married in 2018 (on the same day as Michael’s parents’ 50th wedding anniversary!). Eric is a business sales manager in the retail sector, and Michael is a chief financial officer within the hospitality industry. Outside of work, Michael is a six-time national champion in the sport of figure skating and continues to compete. We both consider our lives to be filled with privilege as we have an amazing family, a group of friends and co-workers who share in our day-to-day lives!
We live in a quiet suburb of a large city in California that has many great schools, parks, and family-owned businesses, which will be great for raising our child. Most of our immediate family also lives in the area! We also have easy access to fun-filled places such as Disneyland and Universal Studios. Aside from living in a great location, we look forward to introducing our amazing cat, Blanca, to our new member of the family.
Our Extended Family
Our respective families are very big on traditions and holidays and are incredibly excited to bring a new member into the mix. Whether it’s a birthday, special event, or major holiday, our families always get together to celebrate. We also make it a point to get together every Friday evening for dinner and every Sunday for lunch. With everyone’s lives being busy, we feel it’s important to see the family as often as possible, and getting together at the end of the week has become a mini tradition over the years.
Some of our favorite traditions include Thanksgiving dinner, which we host while using the same dinnerware Michael’s grandparents owned nearly 100 years ago! Christmas is another memorable time as the family gets together to decorate, go to dinners, and keep up the same traditions that started when we were children and even when our parents were children.
Aside from holidays, we love keeping up with things that have become annual undertakings, such as attending the annual Laguna Art Festival or traveling to New York every December.
What Led Us To Adoption
Since we first met, we’ve always discussed our respective futures and what we wanted to do. One of the things we shared early in our relationship was the desire to have children and raise a family. Having been married since 2018, we are now looking forward to the next chapter in our lives together, which led us to the adoption process. We chose to pursue adoption because of the opportunity to connect with an expectant mother and to provide a child with a beautiful life.
