dear expectant mother

Dear Expectant Mother,

Thank you for taking the time to look at our profile and get to know us! We can only imagine the range of emotions you must be feeling as you figure out the best option for you and your sweet baby. It is our sincere hope that you feel supported through this process. We also want you to understand the love you have already shown your child by spending your time and energy planning your child’s future.

Please know that if you decide to move forward with an adoption plan and choose us, your child will be loved unconditionally. We look forward to celebrating milestones, birthday parties, bedtime stories, visits with Santa, pretend play, blocks building, and trick-or-treating! We promise to encourage your child to be themselves and to support their interests and talents, whether ballet, soccer, science, or gymnastics. We believe education is important and will provide your child with a quality education no matter if they naturally excel at academics or need extra support.

Creating an adoption plan might be one of the first big decisions you will make for your child. If you choose our family, we will consider it an honor and will cherish your child throughout their life. We would be flattered and show respect to you and your baby by working together to create a plan that allows for a level of communication and openness that helps you feel most comfortable.

Please know that if you decide to move forward with an adoption plan and choose us, your child will be loved unconditionally.

About Us

We met online several years ago and immediately knew we were a great match for one another. Jennifer loves Matt’s hardworking nature and silly sense of humor. She knew she had found someone special when she saw how wonderful he treated his pets and how caring and sweet he was with his nieces on a family vacation. They both absolutely adore spending time with him! Matt was drawn to Jennifer’s sense of humor and trustworthiness and liked how easy it was to talk and relate to one another. Jennifer works as a special education preschool teacher in a public school. Matt works as a merchandiser for a large beverage company. We both enjoy spending time with extended family, watching TV and movies at home together, and doing projects around the house.

Our Home & Pets

Our home is in a small, growing town near the beach. We live on a street with little traffic and many families. The community pool is just down the sidewalk from our home. Our home has a front porch with chairs to relax in. The backyard has a patio and a grassy area that will be perfect for a swing set! Inside, we have lots of natural light and a fireplace with a mantel for stockings at Christmas. We have three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Upstairs is a large bonus room that will make a perfect playroom! We have two friendly dogs: Lilly, a 13-year-old Japanese chin, and Toby, a nine-year-old lab mix. Both are great with our young nephew!

Our Extended Family

We are both very close with our families, and everyone is excited about our adoption journey! Matt has two brothers. Both are married and live in Ohio. His younger brother has a daughter, and his older brother has a son and a daughter. Matt’s mother lives in Ohio too, in a historic home where Matt grew up. We talk to Matt’s mother on the phone several times a week, and Matt and his brothers constantly send pictures and texts. Sometimes we see Matt’s family for vacations at the beach.

Jennifer’s family lives nearby. She has a sister who is married and has a three-year-old son. They live about five minutes away. Jennifer and her sister talk daily, and we get together for a meal with her family about once a week. Jennifer’s parents live in a popular tourist town about an hour away from us. There are lots of exciting things to do near their home. We can’t wait to take our child to see the penguins at the aquarium near their grandparents’ house! Jennifer’s parents are retired and able to come for frequent visits. She also has two sets of aunts and uncles and a grandmother nearby. We all enjoy getting together to celebrate holidays and birthdays!

What Led Us To Adoption

As a child, Jennifer had an influential teacher who adopted a baby. At a very young age, after spending time around this child, Jennifer decided she wanted to adopt a child one day too. When we first started dating, Matt was open about his inability to have biological children. We both knew having a child was important to us and talked about adoption early in our relationship. Adoption has always been part of the plan for our future together. We also have family friends who adopted a precious child. They have been great to talk to through this process and are very open to sharing stories about their relationship with their child’s birth family and their experience of growing their family through adoption.
