Dear Expectant Mother,
Saying, “Thank you!” is not enough for the selfless decision you have made in considering an adoption plan. We would like to thank you for taking the time to learn about both of us. If you choose us as adoptive parents, we promise to provide the home you wish for your child, a home full of love, laughter, happiness, support, creativity, and respect. Ours is a home where your child can grow, realize their dreams and develop, all the while being loved and supported unconditionally.
Thank you for taking the time to review our profile and to learn a little about why we would be the perfect parents for your child. We are looking forward to the day, if you choose us, when we can speak with you and get to know each other even better. We’ll end our letter with a quotation that was a focal point at our wedding ceremony, and which we have applied to our life together: “Happiness often sneaks through a door you did not think was open.” We are so excited to begin our adoption journey!
We have been happily together for seven years, and we’ve been married since the spring of 2015. We are fortunate enough not only to have many wonderful similarities but also many interesting differences. Both of us love hiking, camping, traveling, dining out, singing in the car, going to the theater, farming, and spending quality time with family.
Our individual interests allow us to introduce each other to new and exciting experiences. Rob enjoys carpentry, woodworking, keeping a tidy house and biking. On the other hand, Jason enjoys painting, touring museums, cooking, and gardening.
Rob works as a Registered Nurse providing support and clinical education to families during very tough times. Jason works as a Clinical Support Coordinator, where he coordinates life-saving efforts for those in need.
We live in a ranch home nestled in an adorable small farming community on a six-acre wooded lot. We have three active streams nearby, and our property has four berry patches, two peach trees, two apple trees, grape vines, 19 walnut trees, and most importantly, the friendliest neighbors we have ever met. Plus, we have the benefit of a large city only 20 minutes away, which affords us all of the modern amenities.
Our two dogs (Maggie and Charlie) are so sweet. They are the perfect companions for a child. On many occasions, they have been around children in our family. They are patient, docile, and loving towards children. Plus, they are active with us during 5K runs for charitable causes and during our hikes.
Our Extended Family
I am proud to say we have the most amazing families. Both sides are full of aunts, uncles, cousins, siblings, parents, and grandparents who provide us with love and support. We spend every possible free moment with our immediate and extended families. We gather for birthdays, holidays, and special celebrations. We cherish the time we have together and value the contributions each member makes to our family. Our favorite times with the family are, of course, Christmas, Chanukah, Thanksgiving, and the Fourth of July. We treasure these nights full of uncontrolled laughter and unlimited food for the body and soul. Both of us have many wonderful family traditions.
We come from different religious and cultural backgrounds. Jason is Jewish, which means we get to celebrate Chanukah and Passover. Rob is Catholic, which means we get to celebrate Christmas and Easter! We love the holidays very much and feel so fortunate that our varied backgrounds afford us the benefit of family holidays with those we love! Bringing a child into our home would allow that boy or girl to experience the best of both religious worlds and to learn to love everyone.
What Led Us To Adoption
Once we met, we immediately knew that the love we feel for each other needed to be showered on another person, so we decided to adopt a child as soon as we became established in our new home and careers. We wanted to be financially stable enough to give opportunities and the education necessary in raising a child. We are willing and able to provide support, resources, laughter, time, and—most importantly—unconditional, never-ending love for a child. It would be a dream come true to raise an adopted child in our home.
