dear expectant mother

Dear Expectant Mom,

Thank you for taking the time to read our letter. We admire your love and courage in considering adoption for you and your baby. Adoption has touched our lives through many friends of our own. We promise our home will be filled with love and laughter and that your child will be happy and know they are loved, should you choose us.

This is a difficult letter to write to someone we haven’t met. It’s also difficult for you to gain insight into our lives. We can only hope the same forces that have driven us all to this point in our lives will also see to it that we find each other. Our future child will know they are adopted from the beginning, and they will know what a difficult decision their mother made and how much she loves them.

We believe education is important and will provide our child with whatever assistance is needed. They will learn about love, respect, and hard work and will have so much fun along the way! They will spend time with their cousins, grandparents, and friends. They will take part in sports, music, and any other interest of theirs. They will have the love and support of aunts and uncles and spend birthdays and holidays with everyone. Should you choose us to raise your child, you can be assured they will have a happy, fulfilling life and the world will be theirs to explore. Your gift to us will never be taken for granted. Whatever decision you make will be the right one. Please know we will do our best to communicate the love you have for them. Thank you.

About Us

What was supposed to be a quick brunch first date turned out to be an all-day event! We hit it off and talked about life, food, books, and everything in between. We were across the street from a park, so we grabbed some coffee and walked Roland, David’s dog, around the lake and continued talking. At the time, David was opening up his dental practice nearby, so he showed Anthony the space that would soon become his successful practice. The minutes turned into hours, and we continued to hang out and eventually had dinner together before calling it a day. That instant connection has never wavered, and we are now married and over the moon about adopting. We are avid skiers, are season ticket holders to a university hockey team, and love spending time with our family, particularly David’s brother and wife, who live right behind us with their two children.

Our Home & Pets

We live in a suburban neighborhood in Colorado. This is a safe, quiet, family-friendly, diverse community with parks and green spaces that include playgrounds and sports fields. The thought of one day bringing our child to play on one of the playgrounds here brings us so much joy. Our home is next to a large open space where we often take our two dogs to toss the ball. Our home is a five-bedroom, three-bathroom 1960s ranch with a fenced-in backyard. Many of our neighbors have small children. Our friends across the street recently had a baby and we see them walking their baby in a stroller around the lake at the park. We can’t wait to join them on that walk with our future child one day.

Our Extended Family

David’s family is here in Colorado, and Anthony’s family is in Tennessee. One year we stay here in Colorado for Thanksgiving and travel for Christmas and then switch the following year. Christmas in Colorado usually begins with David’s mom and dad coming over for breakfast and coffee first and exchanging gifts. David’s brother and sister-in-law and his niece and nephew will then come over and finish opening more gifts at our place. After a nap, we usually all go out to see a family movie.

When we are in Tennessee, Anthony’s sister often hosts Christmas at her place, and all the presents end up over there for Anthony’s nieces to open. We always pose for a group family photo since Anthony isn’t home as often and finish with a big Christmas dinner. These are our typical family traditions we can’t wait to include with our child.

Our backyard connects with David's brother and his wife and their two children (ages two and five). We often open the gate that connects our two yards to let the kids run around and pick vegetables from our garden and play with the dogs, or we grill out together.

What Led Us To Adoption

We have so much love in our home, and we want to share that with a child. Since we can't have children of our own, we discussed our options and both agreed adoption is the path meant for us. We have friends who have adopted successfully, and it gives us hope we can do the same. We want to become the parents we always dreamed of being. We both have always wanted children in our lives. Anthony has been educating children as a profession for the past 15 years and is ready to care and love for a child of his own. David has watched his niece and nephew grow up next door and wants to create a similarly loving home.
