Dear Expectant Mother,
We genuinely believe that our lives have been building to this moment. Every choice we’ve made as a couple has been made with the intention of creating a loving and safe environment to raise a family. We can’t begin to explain our sincere gratitude for making our dreams come true. Your strength and compassion as a mother will be honored through your gift.
Some of the greatest joys in life come from the smallest of moments. Impromptu dance parties in the kitchen. Rolling your first Yahtzee at Grandma’s. Fish frys at the family pond. Telling ghost stories in your blanket fort with the neighbors from down the street. Ringing in the New Year with black-eyed peas. Falling asleep with your dog during your favorite movie.
We cannot wait to travel, build, laugh, and play and to love, learn, and share with others. We promise to commit ourselves to sharing all of the joys of the world with your child. The journey of adoption is only the first step toward a happiness that cannot be measured in minutes but in joyful moments. We are thrilled beyond belief to begin that journey with you.
When we met nearly six years ago, we knew we were meant for each other. Nick A. wears his heart on his sleeve and is a social butterfly with a passion for education and service. This carries over to his work in corporate training and volunteer efforts in school reform. Nick B. is the grounded one who keeps everything on track and orderly. As a safety officer for the Food and Drug Administration, his knack for science and detail-oriented mindset help him support the health of our nation. Our relationship flourishes from honest communication, unwavering support of our passions, and commitment to being the best version of ourselves. We got married just over a year ago in a wonderful ceremony with the support of all of our family and friends. We never take for granted the gifts that we’ve been given and how we can pass them on to our community, friends, and children.
We purchased our first home last summer in a neighborhood that is popular with both young families and members of the LGBTQ community. While our house is on a quiet street lined with big, old trees, we are only blocks away from a bustling downtown, which is home to many festivals throughout the year as well as a large city park. Our cozy home is in a constant buzz of playing instruments and vinyl records, hosting board game nights, crafting home projects, and experimenting in the kitchen. We currently have one pet: a rescued corgi/golden retriever mix named Nugget, who loves going for walks and playing tug almost as much as he loves napping and snuggles.
Our Extended Family
When growing up in a bustling household, family becomes one of the most treasured values, and this couldn’t ring more true for us. Between the two of us, we have eight siblings, 24 cousins, and various aunts and uncles across the country. This leads to big reunions that hop from state to state: Fourth of July in Ohio, snowy Christmas in Michigan, Thanksgiving in Kansas, summer trips to the lake house, winter escapes in Texas, and mountain hikes in Montana.
When we’re not traveling, our families shine from the time we spend together. We can get quite competitive with board games or very relaxed gathered around a bonfire. We’ll get excited and loud during a marathon or a game of backyard kickball, but we also make a point to all gather round the table to eat and drink while sharing stories. With family members ranging from doctors to chefs, from entrepreneurs to engineers, from teachers to filmmakers, we’re never short of reasons to both challenge and to brag on each other. Our family has shown us tremendous love and support, and they can’t wait to help us nurture and spoil our children.
What Led Us To Adoption
Ever since we started dating, we knew that having a family together would be our greatest gift for each other. We both have always envisioned a future as parents as family has always been such a significant part of our lives. We believe that family is where you are with those who love and care for you the most, and we recognize adoption as one of the best opportunities to share our love with someone who needs a happy and safe home. We're tremendously lucky to have the support system that we have and will funnel all of our love and theirs into our children. (We want to have more than one!)
