Dear Expectant Mother,
Let us first start by telling you how grateful, appreciative, and honored we are that you are considering us as parents to your child. We do not take this life-long task lightly, as we realize how difficult this decision must be for you on so many different levels. Rest assured your baby’s well-being will be pursued and fulfilled by us. You are giving us the opportunity to have a loving and supportive family, which would not be possible without your help. There is not an act of kindness that could ever compare or measure-up to this one. We will not let you down in the responsibility you have so blessed us with. We will live our lives through the eyes of your child.
Ian will try to find some way to peak your child’s interest in sports, and Stacie will spoil him or her with good music, colorful drawings and paintings, showing your child how to be creative. We will love and support your child in whatever he or she becomes passionate about, as his or her life is our life.
We are humbled by your trust, courage, and strength, and we hope you have a healthy, happy, and successful future. Thank you for helping make our dreams come true.
Stacie is a Pharmaceutical Eyewear Sales Representative, and Ian is an Elementary School Teacher at a prestigious preparatory school where he teaches all academic subjects. As a couple, we are best friends and each other’s unconditionally loving soulmates. We call ourselves a team because we have successfully managed and overcome numerous obstacles together while still embracing the present and future. We are each other’s confidants, and important decisions are always made jointly. Whether it’s sunny and beautiful or raining and pouring, we experience these moments together with love, happiness, and laughter or support, empathy, and teamwork.
We live in a family-oriented suburb just outside Orlando and Disney World. Our home is a duplex townhouse comprised of four bedrooms, three full bathrooms, and a kitchen, living room, dining room, den, and home office. We have a backyard that consists of a screened-in patio, and an additional play area where we play with our Goldendoodle, Crosby. Our neighborhood contains two clubhouses, which each have pools, gyms, game rooms, basketball courts, tennis courts, dog parks, outdoor barbecue areas, walking/running trails, and two public schools, and there are always lots of seasonal festivals that cater to children. We moved into this neighborhood so we could eventually share these fun experiences with our family.
Our Extended Family
Ian’s family includes his brother, sister-in-law, and their three children, of which the eldest is 12-years-old and the younger two, who are twins, are nine-years-old. All three love sports, as the two boys, admirably, follow in their Uncle Ian’s footsteps. We are excited for our child to have a close relationship with their cousins, aunt, uncle, and Ian’s father, “Papa.” Papa lives near Ian’s brother, and he loves spending time with his grandchildren. Ian’s family is extremely excited and supportive about the adoption and ready to welcome a new addition to the family with open arms.
Stacie’s family includes her father, mother, and older brother, who is the same age as Ian; all of them are so happy, excited, and supportive of this adoption. They plan to move much closer to us so that they may be of help and assistance, while also enjoying making memories with their soon-to-be grandchild by exposing him or her to the fine arts and music.
Your child will be exposed to many activities and traditions, including sports, music and holidays important to American and Jewish culture. There will be birthdays, graduations, summer vacations and camps together. Everyone is so excited!
What Led Us To Adoption
We met later in life, in our mid-30s, and we always knew we wanted a family. Despite a miscarriage and then a stillborn, we refused to give up on our dream of building a loving and caring family. We have realized there are so many options for making our family a reality, and we have taken the leap for adoption. This gives us hope and confidence for a better and brighter future together. Parenting is something we not only want, but something we need to do to make our life and our relationship complete.
