Dear Expectant Mother,
We want to thank you for taking the time to view our profile and express how grateful we are that you love your unborn child so much you are willing to consider adoption. We can’t comprehend what you are feeling, but we want you to know we commend your bravery and strength and wish you nothing but peace and security in your decision. We have been through a difficult and emotional battle with infertility and could never thank you enough for giving us this opportunity to partner with you in the journey that is your beautiful child’s life.
We promise you that your child will live a wonderful, safe, and fun life.
We promise you your child will view you as strong, caring, and loving through any words spoken by us.
We promise you we and our families will love and support your child through all of life's hurdles.
We promise you we will allow them to express themselves and will support their dreams.
We promise to provide a safe, caring, and loving home for your child to live, grow, and learn in. And finally, we promise to love your child unconditionally and never let a day go by when we don’t sing your praise in our hearts.
It is the strong people like you who give hope to those of us unable to grow a family on our own. Thanks again for providing us with the chance to become parents.
We have a very loving and committed relationship and have been married for a little over five years. Greg works as a technical support analyst and works from home. Nicole spends her days alternating between working at the family business and teaching music lessons at the local schools. Nicole also spends some of her evenings and weekends performing with local symphonies. Greg likes attending rock concerts, playing rec league softball, and fishing. Nicole likes taking the dog to the dog park, spending time with family, throwing BBQs, and cuddling up on the couch with a good book. As a couple, we like to travel, find random activities to do together, and binge watch Marvel movies.
We live in a split-level three-bedroom, two-bath, open-concept home with a bonus room. We have a massive fenced-in backyard we and our little dog enjoy. Our neighborhood has a nice mixture between older retired couples and younger families that have moved into the neighborhood for the school district. Our neighbors, Nicole’s parents, have a gated pool, and we are within walking distance of a popular farm that hosts daily child-friendly activities. We have a small hypoallergenic, adorable yorkie/poodle dog, whom Greg swears is smarter than some of his friends. She is super sweet and affectionate and loves to cuddle as well as eat squeaky toys.
Our Extended Family
Our extended families are a huge part of our lives. Unfortunately, we don’t see Greg’s family as much as we would like as they live eight hours away, but we try to visit at least four times a year and keep in close contact with them the rest of the time. We live in the same neighborhood as Nicole’s parents, uncle, and grandmother, and we see them almost daily.
Every Sunday during the summer, we meet at Nicole’s parents’ home to BBQ and play “mildly” competitive games of water volleyball. If we aren’t doing that, then we are at the lake riding jet skis and chilling at the marina’s restaurant.
During the Christmas season, we have an annual dinner at a local family-style Italian restaurant and eat way too much. Then Nicole’s family always throws a huge party for Christmas Eve that everyone in the neighborhood is invited to, and we play games and exchange gifts. Christmas mornings are quieter and revolve around the immediate family where we do the typical Christmas stuff, but later that day, we have our traditional family Christmas tacos. We are so excited to welcome a child into our lives and share these experiences and traditions with them!
What Led Us To Adoption
We always knew we wanted children, but after trying for years and tons of needle pricks and tests, we discovered starting a biological family would not be possible. After listening to our hearts and a lot of thoughtful conversations, we decided having a biological child was not important to us. What is important to us is sharing our love and lives with a child and being there for them as they grow and flourish. Adoption would mean the world to us and our family. We feel it would complete our family and bring us a lifetime of happiness. Our families are both extremely excited and supportive of this journey and look forward to having a little one around.
