Our names are Nicolas and Erin, and we want to thank you for taking the time to view our profile and consider us. We understand that you are faced with a very difficult decision, and that you want what is best for your child. We have so much respect and admiration for you, because this choice is truly one of selfless love and faith. We hope that you will find some peace of mind in learning more about us and how we would love and care for your child.
We met through a mutual friend about nine years ago and quickly fell in love. After a little over a year of dating, it became clear that we were meant for each other, and we got married in 2010. We love experiencing each new stage of life as a couple, and have been there for one another during our happiest moments as well as for those that are more challenging. We feel lucky to have each other’s strength and support to rely on at all times.
From the moment we met, we both knew that we wanted to have children. Over time, however, it became increasingly clear that we were unable to have children on our own. As we thought about other ways to build a family, the only option that felt right to us was adoption. This is not a decision that we took lightly - we put much thought into it and shared our story with family members and friends who built their own families through adoption, so that we could go into this knowing what to expect. While we explored the process, our excitement began to grow as we realized that adoption was the perfect choice for us.
As you consider your options, please know that we would welcome your child into a stable and loving family. We both have caring and nurturing personalities, and we look forward to sharing our love with your baby. Raising this child will be the single most important thing in our life.
We have a fun and active lifestyle, and we are eager to include your child in it. We live close to Washington, DC, where there are so many interesting and fun things to do. There are always new opportunities to learn and have fun! We also keep active, and will make sure to raise your child in a healthy lifestyle. One thing that really helps is that we have a very playful and energetic dog, which encourages us to spend a lot of time outdoors. Our dog, Ivy, loves kids and is very gentle and patient with them. She will be a wonderful friend to your child!
We travel to France regularly, since Nicolas is originally from the Paris region and still has many relatives there. We really look forward to travelling there with your child, and teaching him or her about that country’s language and culture.
As your child grows up, we look forward to sending you pictures, letters, and emails, so you can see your child thrive and know that you made the right decision. You will see that your child is in a loving home, and will grow up to become a strong, smart, compassionate, and successful person. We will make sure that your child knows how much we admire your strength at making such a difficult decision, and that your love for him or her is forever.
From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for giving us the opportunity to become a family. We are more than ready to become parents and love your child.
Nicolas and Erin
