Starting a family has always been a dream of ours. To be able to have that family begin through adoption is incredibly humbling. We are thrilled by the possibility of adding a baby to our family and grateful that you have taken the time to get to know us better.
We are both incredibly fortunate. We have each other. We have been married for six years, together for seven. We are best friends and make a great team. We have extended families and friends who love us and have made our lives worthwhile and wonderful. Our home is full of laughter and fun. However, we are missing a key part of our hearts and dreams. Bringing home a child to love, comfort, teach, and watch grow would be our dream come true. We cannot wait to show them the world and provide every opportunity we had and more.
We started trying to have a baby a year in our marriage. After two miscarriages and a diagnosis of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, we realized we needed a different plan to become parents. When we thought it over, adoption was more in line with our hearts than invitro or surrogacy. Adoption to us means not only opening our hearts and home to a child but to you as well. Love multiplied.
We can't wait to teach a child how to read, ride a bike, swim, and love life and family. We are even looking forward to diaper changes and all-nighters. To us, being someone's parent means loving them and helping them fulfill their dreams. We are so excited to be on this amazing journey!
You are our hero. We think you are the bravest, strongest person on the planet and that you are making this decision out of unconditional love for your child. We promise that your child will know his or her story, they will know you.
We want you to be included in this child’s life by sending you letters and pictures, not just of milestones and birthdays, but of everyday moments. We never want you to be afraid to ask us questions. We will raise your child to admire and respect you for the loving decision you made. We want you to know and share in their story. We never want them to wonder how or why they came to us. We cannot promise to be perfect, but we can promise that your child will be loved unconditionally. We will fill their life with love, laughter, and memories that will last a lifetime.
We already have a place in our hearts for both of you. If you choose us as parents, you would be fulfilling our greatest wish. There really are not enough words to tell you what this would mean to us. Just know that we support you and understand whatever you decide, we just hope to be part of the journey.
