dear expectant mother

Dear Expectant Mother,

You are so amazing! If you are reading this right now, then we are thanking our lucky stars. Neither of us can imagine what you are going through, but both of us would love to hear about it more. We have a ton of respect for you and your journey. We are both grateful you are considering this sacrifice. It shows your love is truly pure, and we both admire that.

If you were to decide to explore us as possible parents, we would be in this with you, whatever that means to all of us involved. Every interpersonal relationship is different, and we’re excited to build our relationship with you, letting you tell us what you’re comfortable with and what the process should look like. We’re open minded and open to all the possibilities.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for giving us a chance. We would love to live up to your expectations as the perfect couple to raise your baby. Our hearts are full of love, and our imaginations are full of fun activities to share. We want to show your baby the world and celebrate the beautiful diversity therein. We want to position this child to be as successful and happy as possible. We are ready for the commitment of unwavering, unconditional love, and we cannot thank you enough for taking the time to consider us.

With gratitude,
Anja & Amanda

About Us

Hello! We are Anja and Amanda, two ladies in love and on a mission. One of us directs the bulk of a five-star hotel operation, while the other runs finance and operations for an Internet company. We love to play tennis and golf, travel, and go on adventures. Our ten wonderful years together have many highlights, but a few of our favorite memories include an extended trip down the East Coast of Africa, Broadway plays in NYC, getting caught in an enormous snow storm in Chicago, running through the Louvre at lightning speed during a layover in France, and having an amazing New Year’s Eve on a beach in Thailand. We love living life with the utmost of passion, and we love each other. Our partnership is built on trust and unconditional love; we can really rely on one another no matter what.

Our Home & Pets

Our home is a modern new construction nestled in a community of fantastic people. There is a lovely outdoor path with lots of trees, a fire pit for gathering, and a coal grill. We enjoy an open-plan main living area that allows us to make healthy, delicious homemade meals while keeping an eye on our two cats, who love to lounge on the couch. The kitchen table serves as both an eating place and a game haven for family favorites such as Rummikub and Trivial Pursuit. The area we live in has tons of parks, hiking trails, and great kid-friendly outdoor eating places we think our future little one will love.

Our Extended Family

One of us is from Switzerland and the other grew up on a farm, so we have a lot of exciting things to do when we see family! We go to Europe usually once a year. During the winter we will hit up the family cabin in the mountains and ski, hike, and eat fondue with family. The summertime is usually spent near the Italian border on the beautiful glacial lake there. When we visit the Midwest, there’s plenty of time to spend on the farm doing all the outdoorsy things. The big farmhouse is always lit up on Christmas, and if it snows, it has some great sledding hills. Summer days on the farm are packed with fishing, cookouts, and farm work, while summer nights are perfect for stargazing and catching lightning bugs. Both of our families are super excited to have another addition to the ski group in Switzerland and the euchre (card game) players in the Midwest.

What Led Us To Adoption

Our life together is amazing, and we want to share that life and all of our love with a little one. We have always dreamed of having a family together, and adoption calls to us. We have friends and other family members who have been adopted, and we cannot think of anything more wonderful than to bring a child into our lives!
