dear expectant mother

Dear Expectant Mother,

First off, we are in awe of you. We can’t even begin to imagine the emotions you must be experiencing as you consider adoption for your precious child. We understand you are in a difficult situation, and if you choose us, we promise to provide for your baby with love, first and foremost. We promise to protect, provide, and care for your baby. We promise to raise your baby with high standards, morals, compassion, and the best education. We promise to do everything we can in our power, with support from our family and friends, to give your baby the best life possible.

We are so fortunate to be surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery, beaches, museums, theater halls, sports teams, and best schools in the country. Life has been very good to us, and we feel a profound sense of purpose and responsibility to share our blessings with a child who can thrive in a loving home. We are excited to raise another child and to teach him or her all about the world and culture by traveling and going on adventures. Further, we are excited to raise a child to give back to a world that needs more compassion and love.

Thank you for considering us as adoptive parents for your child.

Sincerely,
Russell & Miles

After adopting Sebastian, we are so passionate about adopting another child. We are absolutely overjoyed that your heart would be so open that you would consider us as adoptive parents.

About Us

We have been together for ten years and married for five. We are both extremely active and energetic, and we have a lot of love to share. We have a son named Sebastian whom we adopted as a baby three years ago. He is our life! Miles works in finance, where he helps businesses that are in or near bankruptcy get back on their feet. Russell is a television producer and has produced thousands of hours of hit network and cable television shows. We love to work out, host dinner parties with our close circle of friends, and travel, travel, travel! We have a dozen rental properties all over the U.S., and we love to visit them for weekend getaways whenever we can. We are also very passionate about rescuing animals at local shelters and are creating a non-profit organization to help place needy animals.

Our Home & Pets

We live in a gated and extremely safe neighborhood with a huge yard. Our neighbors are our close friends, and there are many children around. There are parks close by, and the best private schools in the city are within ten minutes of our home. Sebastian has already been accepted into one of the best private schools in the country, and his sibling automatically gets to attend. We have two rescue dogs: Gizmo, a five-year-old terrier, and Gusto, a ten-year-old black Lab. Gizmo, the smallest of the dogs, runs the house! They are both very sweet puppies and very loving to anyone they meet, including children and babies!

Our Extended Family

Miles’s immediate family consists of his mother, his stepfather, and his brother and his wife. His aunt and her kids are also very present in our lives. We love visiting Miles’s parents’ massive farm in Texas, and Sebastian is obsessed with riding the tractors and chasing the cows.

Russell’s immediate family consists of his mother, his stepfather, his twin brother, another brother, and his sister. They are all married and have kids as well. They live in southern Illinois near each other, and Sebastian loves visiting them.

Both of our families are so excited to welcome another sibling into our household and into their lives. We also have a very strong support network with our local friends, our coworkers, and Sebastian’s godparents. We consider them family as well.

Our Adoption Story

Growing up as young gay men, we never dreamed we could become fathers someday. After adopting Sebastian, we are so passionate about adopting another child. We are absolutely overjoyed that your heart would be so open that you would consider us as adoptive parents. We have always wanted to adopt and give the most amazing life to a child. This process has been so humbling for us. Now that we are married and financially set in our careers, we are ready to continue being the best dads we can possibly be.
