dear expectant mother

Dear Expectant Mother,

Thank you for taking the time to get to know us a little. We’re excited to be on this journey to grow our family and hope to welcome your little one into our lives. We understand and respect your decision of adoption is a difficult one but is something you’re considering because of your love, courage, and strength for your baby. We pray you have peace of mind and comfort as you decide the best path for your child.

We’ve known for a long time we’ve wanted children, and we are so grateful adoption will give us the opportunity to have a family of our own. We can’t wait to share our lives with a child and bring them up surrounded by family and friends who will love them dearly.

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking the time to get to know us and considering us to be your child’s family. We are grateful for your strength and courage to make a decision as difficult as this is. We wish you all the love and support you need as you make this decision.

About Us

We are both finishing up our MBAs and work together at the same company. David is a senior business process manager, while Michael is an operations analyst. Aside from our careers, we have a passion for traveling and outdoor activities, including enjoying nature, kayaking, hiking, bonfires, and even mountain climbing. We love to spend quality time with our friends and family exploring our home state by camping, renting Airbnbs for long weekends, or even getting away by adventuring to Mexico. We have spent many years together renovating homes and even built a tiny home. As for our personalities, we consider ourselves to be down to earth and easygoing yet deeply dedicated individuals. David is task-focused and detail-oriented with innovative ideas. Michael is a creative thinker with a fun imagination who is not afraid to explore or try new things.

Our Home & Pets

We recently built our home on ten acres of land. It’s a 15-minute drive to larger cities but far enough away to have our own personal slice of paradise. Our daily visitors are the local wildlife, and we’re also able to let our two small dogs run freely. Our neighbors are within earshot but still far enough away where we don’t see them from our home. We have ATV trails on our property and open space for our outdoor gatherings. The school district is Blue Ribbon Exemplary and within miles of our home. Michael attended the same school district growing up, so we are confident in the school district’s ability to provide proper care to all students.

Our Extended Family

Michael grew up in the town we live in now, and his parents have been members of the community for over 30 years. Although his parents are divorced, Michael maintains a close relationship with his parents, step-parents, siblings, and step-siblings. Traditions such as going up north to the family cabin, Easter egg hunts, and spending holidays together continue to remain important to the family.

David’s parents were high school sweethearts and have been married for 36 years. He is the oldest of three children and has a much younger brother and sister he is very close with. David’s parents travel full time and spend most of the winter down south but spend their time with family up north during the summers. David’s extended family is very large, and they are all very close. They get together regularly, camp throughout the summer with each other, and travel together.

Over 13 years, our families have gotten to know one another, and often the families gather together for celebrations. Both of our families are exceptionally excited about our decision to adopt, and we have the full support of all of our loved ones to expand our family.

What Led Us To Adoption

We started our journey together 13 years ago and knew then we would want to have a family together. We are both so excited we are at a time in our lives to finally welcome a child into our family. We were both raised in big families and believe family is everything; we can’t wait to raise a child with that same love and support. Being raised with large families has given us both a sense of belonging, a safe place, and comradery. We want our child to feel the same way in knowing they will always have their family and will always be surrounded by love.
