dear expectant mother

Dear Expectant Mother,

We know we do not yet know each other, but we cannot begin to tell you how much we appreciate you for being you. Your consideration of allowing us to raise your baby is something we will never take for granted.

Our home and family are ready to take on raising a baby, and we will do everything we can to ensure they are brought up in a place of love, compassion, and empathy. We want them to grow up to be everything you could have ever wanted, and we hope to be able to nurture that growth through their entire life. We believe in a household that inspires education, creativity, connection to family and culture, and an ability for them to feel comfortable blossoming into whoever they end up becoming in this life.

Through our joy of travel, arts, spending time with extended family (both the American and the European), and embracing everything this world has to offer, we hope to inspire the same in our future child. We are ready to be parents to your baby and ensure they receive every possible ounce of love and joy we can give to them.

Thank you for taking the time to consider us as potential adoptive parents. We have so much we want to give and can only hope your decision will help us on our journey to become a family to your amazing baby.

With all the love in the world,
Jonathan and Nicholas

We could not be more ecstatic to be on this journey of parenthood.

About Us

We could not be more ecstatic to be on this journey of parenthood. We started our relationship in 2012 in Indiana and have been together ever since. Jonathan works in international development on the African continent, and Nicholas works in human resources and recruiting for civil rights and non-profit advocacy organizations. We share the joy of traveling the world and experiencing every facet of life we can. Jonathan’s extended family is primarily Dutch and French, so we spend a lot of time traveling across Europe whenever we get the chance. In addition to travel, we love live theater and musicals, museums, aquariums, and getting to be a part of changing the world for the better. Family means so much to us, and we are excited about the prospect of adding to ours.

Our Home & Pets

We are perfectly placed only minutes from Washington, DC. Within a short distance, we have a plethora of parks, museums, activities, festivals, and events that are fun for all ages. We live in a home with a large, fenced-in backyard perfect for playing anytime of the year. In addition to our wonderful home, we have a boxer mix dog named Morgan. We adopted her together back in 2012. She would love to welcome another member to the family as she has been around with the raising of all of our nieces and adores children of all ages.

Our Extended Family

Our family is everything to us, and we take every opportunity to enjoy time together. Jonathan grew up as the youngest of his three siblings and sixteen cousins. His dad is from Indiana and his mom from the Netherlands. His sister has two daughters (8 and 10), and his brother has one daughter (12). We are so blessed to be a part of the journey of raising them.

Nicholas grew up as an only child with fun-loving parents. His family is from a small town in Indiana. Many members of his family were only children which led them to create a tight-knit bond with each other. He is extremely close to his mother and father who enjoy joining in the combined family activities each year.

No matter what time of year, we try to find reasons to all spend time with each other, whether that is to celebrate holidays, life accomplishments, or just the comradery of being together. We often are able to do this either in the United States or in Europe and bring everyone from our immediate and extended families together. Everyone is excited and joyous to welcome a new baby to the family.

What Led Us To Adoption

We have been together for over ten years and have discussed adoption throughout the entirety of our relationship knowing that a family is all we ever wanted. We have moved into a place in our lives where we are ready to bring another person into our home and raise them from a place of love, compassion, and empathy. We have had the joy of being a part of raising our three nieces (8, 10, and 12) and are looking forward to ensuring our child has everything they could ever want that this world has to offer. Your baby will be unconditionally loved from the moment we are chosen and throughout every single second of that child’s life.
