Writing this letter to you has been the most challenging part of the adoption process for us thus far. It is impossible to describe in words how much love we have for a child that we have never met. It is equally difficult to describe how thankful we are that you chose adoption for your child. We applaud your strength, selflessness, and commitment to find the perfect family for your baby. Are we that perfect family? Yes! We will instill good morals and values, teach him or her to be kind, respectful, and generous, and raise him or her to be a productive member of society. Obviously, there is no one specific manual on parenting and we are going to make mistakes. We have definitely received some on-the-job training as parents with most of that training coming from a toddler. Fortunately, we are quick learners, have a strong support system, and parents who are excellent role models.
We aren't perfect, but we're perfect for each other! We've been married for two years. As a couple, we genuinely enjoy each other's company. We share the same Christian beliefs, political views, and have a number of similar interests. We both enjoy traveling, watching the national news, and love sports. Your child will probably grow up watching and playing a number of sports since Tim played football at Penn State and is currently the head football coach at a local high school. We also own box seats to every home Penn State football game, our family owns 5 NFL season tickets, and we belong to a country club with unlimited golf and an outdoor pool. We are both established in our chosen careers and have a lot of flexibility with our schedules. Tim is able to work from home and Robyn works less than five miles away enabling her to come home for lunch. Robyn is independent, thrifty, patient, and loyal. Tim is assertive, generous, athletic, and intelligent. Together we make a great team!
We believe it is important for your child to know that he or she was adopted as early as he or she can understand what the concept means, but we do not intend to belabor the point since being adopted will not define him or her. Your child will know that you loved him or her so much that you put aside your wants for his or her needs. We are open to remaining in touch through emails and photos so that you can feel a part of your child's life and be reassured that you made the right decision in choosing our family.
We recognize that there is a great deal of trust shared between us during this process. We have put our faith in God and trust in His plan for us and your child and we hope that you trust us to give your child a loving and stable home where there is no shortage of hugs, kisses, and bed time stories!
Tim and Robyn
