Dear Expectant Mother,
Hello! It is incredibly exciting to think this chance meeting between us could change all of our lives! We are grateful for the opportunity to share who we are with you, with the hope that we might be destined to be the parents of your baby girl or boy. You have already inspired us, from afar, with your strength, selflessness, and compassion.
We will take care of all your baby’s needs and will empower him or her to follow their dreams. Your baby will travel abroad, go skiing in the Colorado Rockies, backpack through the Utah red rocks, watch fireflies in the Ohio summer, ride horses with Sam, and learn woodworking with David. Ours will be a home full of laughter, creativity, science projects, Legos, lots of animals, and infinite love.
Fate has brought us to this moment, with you reading our letter and us waiting to hear from the birth mother of our future child. We know this is a big decision, and we are extremely thankful to be considered. We are here for you, and your baby will always know how much love and respect we have for you. He or she will be our greatest treasure. Thank you!
David grew up in central Ohio, and Samantha is from the Colorado front range. During college, Sam became friends with David’s sister, Kristy, who lived across the hall in their freshman dorm. It wasn’t until eight years later, while we were both in graduate school on opposite coasts, that Sam finally met David at a family New Years’ Eve party in Ohio. We made an instant connection, and, despite 3,000 miles and a 3-hour time difference, we fell in love and chose to be together forever. David is an architect, and Sam is a veterinarian, so we balance each other through both art and science. We share a passion for the outdoors, learning and education, and travel. We are also animal-lovers, runners, and Harry Potter fans. We can’t wait to share all of these things, and more, with your little one!
Our Colorado home is near the foothills along the Rocky Mountain front range, close to the university hospital where Samantha works. As an architect, David is currently designing our dream home, which we plan to build within the next five years; and, as a veterinarian, Sam is envisioning all of the animals we will fill it with! We will have several acres of land, which will house our horses, goats, chickens, dogs, cats, and more. Our current companions include an affectionate border collie-mix, Cobalt, and two spunky orange kittens, named Copper and Cadmium. David’s beautiful design is environmentally conscious and centered around family life, with a room specifically created for your baby. Cobalt and the kittens can’t wait to meet the new addition!
Our Extended Family
David comes from an adventurous family of four children. He grew up in a house built by his dad, which is what inspired him to become an architect. Travel is a huge part of David’s family culture, from international trips chasing total solar eclipses, to camping through Mexico, to road trips out west on the family’s converted school bus. One of our most important family traditions is our three-day, costume-wearing, board game-playing, dance-until-4am, New Year’s Eve bash!
Samantha’s family is equally close. She grew up skiing, horseback riding, and hiking in Colorado with her family, which includes her siblings and many cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, and more. Some of our favorite family traditions include Thanksgiving at Gram’s house around a giant table, summer road trips to visit our Idaho family, sledding behind the family’s mountain ski condo, the annual pre-Christmas Cookie Day with all of the cousins, and Sunday morning waffles with Sam’s mom.
We will share all of these traditions, and make many of our own, with your child. Both of our families have been touched by adoption, and they are as excited as we are to love your baby!
What Led Us To Adoption
Adoption has been a lifelong goal for us. We both come from tremendously loving and supportive families, and we can’t wait to pay that forward as parents. Although we have struggled with infertility and miscarriage, adoption has always been a part of our journey in growing a family, and now we are ready to realize that vision. We believe that diversity is strength, and our family will be enriched many times over through the inclusion of you and your baby. We intend to continue adding to our family through future adoptions, so your baby will grow up with siblings and knowing that your love for them was so powerful that you chose to entrust us with their care.
