Dear Expectant Mother,
Thank you for taking the time to get to know us a little. We hope you are able to feel the love that fills these pages. Our hearts are open and ready to love a precious child. If you choose an adoption plan and choose us to raise your child, we promise the following commitment to you:
- All they’ll ever know is love. He or she will never doubt the love you have for them, and they will grow up knowing how special you are to us;
- They will always know about their beginnings, about where they are from and who you are;
- We will surround them with a loving family that will help them navigate through life’s ups and downs, giving them nothing but understanding and unconditional love;
- We will teach them to dream big and encourage them to follow their passions;
- We commit to helping him or her become a person of good character that others will look to and want to follow;
- We will foster their natural gifts, those they inherit from you and those that God weaves into the fabric of who they are;
- We will empower them to change the world.
Our life together has been a wonderful adventure so far, and we would love to have you walk alongside us as we navigate the beautiful journey that is to come ahead. Please know you will continue to be in our every thought and prayer.
We were working for the same company way back in 2013. We quickly got to know each other and became friends, but things remained casual. We learned a lot about each other’s personalities and character without the pressures of dating, which was great! After about a year or so of friendship, Mitch asked Ana out to the movies, and it was the best night ever. We spent hours talking about everything and nothing at all, and soon we realized our friendship was blossoming into a romance. After dating for 2 years, Ana proposed to Mitch on February 29th, 20016, leap year!! It’s an Irish tradition that, on a leap year, women can propose to their boyfriends in Ireland, and although we were not in Ireland, Ana loved the idea and decided to propose to Mitch. It’s been 2 years now, and everyday we love and appreciate each other more.
We bought a 3-bedroom townhouse in 2017, and we’ve spent the last months painting and decorating, turning it into a home where people will feel welcome and cared for while here. We have lots of room for your little one to play and grow! Our neighborhood has walking paths, a playground, a lake, and families from all over the world. We love taking our dog, Maggie, for walks around the lake, and can’t wait to take our child too! We live in a small town just outside Washington, DC, so we get the best of both worlds: small town living with all the best a big city has to offer, with some of the best attractions and museums just a short drive away.
Our Extended Family
We both come from very close-knit families. Although most of them are in different countries, we are always in touch, and love the times we get to visit them. We take turns going to Brazil, Ireland, and Algeria, and we love whenever they come to visit. Family to us is very important, and so we always put it first. They have been nothing but supportive and excited about our adoption journey, and they can’t wait to meet the newest member of our family. We are all dreaming of the day when we’ll get to share our traditions and values with our child: all the travels, weekends at the beach, baking cookies, holidays, and birthday parties. With one niece and 3 nephews between us, lots of cousins, aunts and uncles, not to mention very loving grandparents, your baby will always have an infinite amount of love and will certainly be spoiled rotten in the best way possible!
What Led Us To Adoption
Having met later in life, we’ve chosen to adopt a child for a couple of reasons. We know the possibility of conceiving naturally is slim, and the bottom line is is we simply want a family; we’re excited to become parents! We realize that we’re now living for something bigger than just ourselves and our individual goals - that we’re each living for the family we’re creating. Adoption is a wonderful way of growing a family, and we’re overjoyed about our own journey in growing our family through adoption. We’re so ready to love a little life and give ourselves to them! Love is love, no matter how it comes to you.
