Dear Expectant Mother,
We would like to begin by saying thank you. Thank you for making one of the most difficult decisions of your life. We understand that this decision is based on the love you have for your child, and it is not an easy decision for you to make. Thank you for thinking of your child and his or her future. The choice you make will forever change the life of your child, and putting your child’s life ahead of yours speaks volumes of the love you have for him or her.
Thank you for considering us as possible parents to your child. We have so much love to give and wish to share that love with your child. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us. We are so excited to be on this journey with you and are eager to be a part of your child’s life. Becoming parents is something that we have been waiting for. We are excited to raise your child, to help him or her grow, learn, and become everything that he or she was meant to be. Thank you for everything.
We are Brenda and Ruben. We have been married for 3 ½ years but have known each other for almost 18. We met at a mall where a local radio station was having a Valentine’s Day social. Ruben asked for Brenda’s email address, and she thought he was so cute. We enjoy spending time together going antiquing, driving around to see nearby cities, bike riding, and just spending time together at home.. As long as we are together, it doesn’t matter what we are doing. Ruben loves finding out how things work and researching various items before we purchase them. His inquisitiveness helps him in his job as an electronics repair technician. Brenda is an elementary school librarian who loves her job and the students she teaches. Brenda is passionate about her career and enjoys every moment of it.
Our one-story home is only a couple of years old and includes three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and an office. Our ample backyard has plenty of space for our two playful dogs to run around. They enjoy chasing each other around the yard and look forward to having someone to play catch with them. Living in a still-growing neighborhood with a community pool and playground provides us with easy access to fun activities. The nearby trails are ideal for walking or bike riding as a family. Having downtown close by provides us with many opportunities to visit the zoo, parks, and different museums.
Our Extended Family
Ruben grew up in a small family as the only child of two loving parents. Every Christmas his family would alternate traveling to Florida and New Jersey to visit his extended family. Even though they are all in different states, Ruben remains very close to his four cousins. Ruben’s father passed away almost 12 years ago, but Ruben still thinks of him daily. Ruben has a very close relationship with his mother, and they see each other every week.
Brenda grew up with a large extended family, with her mother being one of nine and her father being one of seven. With more than 40 cousins, Brenda’s family reunions have always been very loud and lively. Although they now live in different areas of the state, Brenda remains very close to her extended family. She also has a younger brother who is married with three beautiful children. Brenda’s parents and brother live about 30 minutes away, and they see each other at least once a week.
We celebrate every holiday with our parents and Brenda’s brother and family. We love spending time together, eating, joking, and playing games. There is never a dull moment when we get together.
What Led Us To Adoption
After struggling with infertility issues, we have welcomed the decision to grow our family through adoption. We are both excited and nervous about becoming parents, but in our hearts, we know that adoption is the right choice for us. With the love and support of our families, we are so delighted to be on this journey. We know that somewhere out there is the child who will complete our family, and we look forward to meeting that child.
