We’ve been married for almost eight years but have been together for almost fifteen. The story of our relationship is of two people who are best friends and deeply in love despite sometimes being very different. One is constantly in motion and the living definition of extrovert ... the other more relaxed and introverted. Our strength is that we complement and balance each other. Together we have built our life based on love, laughter and fun. We’re an active family and there is always something to do and somewhere to go. Play time at the park, baseball games, backyard cookouts with friends and family, visiting museums and family are all pretty typical activities. Family vacations and travel are also important to us.
Your child will join a small, but tight, and loving family. We have a six year old daughter. She has been asking about a baby brother or sister for as long as she could talk and we’re thrilled that we can make her, and our, wish come true. In addition to the three of us, your child will be also be loved and looked after by our furry family members a dog, who loves children, and our cat ... Whom children really adore. Outside of our immediate family, your child will gain five cousins, five aunts and uncles and three grandparents. They’re all very excited about our decision to adopt and cant wait to be a part of the child’s life.
Our favorite parts of parenting, and maybe what we’re most looking forward to, are difficult to talk about in one short letter. The baby’s first words, learning how talk, taking their first steps, Christmas and the holidays ... they’re all wonderful events we will be sure to share with you in letters and pictures. But maybe more than the milestones are the little, more subtle things that develop over time. Watching their personality take shape, learning their likes and dislikes, seeing their sense of humor develop and just watching a little baby, so dependent on us one minute, come into their own and grow as a person so quickly we don’t know where the time went. As they say, the reward is not in the destination but in the journey.
We hope this gives you a little insight into us as a family and shows you how much love we can give to your child as well as the value we’ll pass on. Thank you once again for considering us for this incredible honor and we hope to meet you soon.Sincerely,
Scott and Alie
