Thank you so much for taking the time to read our letter and for considering us to be parents to your child. Creating an adoption plan is a very loving and courageous decision and if you choose to take this beautiful and selfless journey we hope you will find a family that truly touches your heart and eases your mind.
Long before we were even married, we talked about how special it would be to have adoption as part of our family’s story, so when we discovered that having biological children was likely not possible for us we simply took the news as a sign from above that this journey was truly meant for us. We fell head over heels in love with each other seven years ago, and ever since then we have dedicated our lives to preparing for parenthood and we couldn’t be more excited about the possibility of being blessed with another child to love and support.
We live in a very family friendly community in the northern suburbs of Chicago. Our home is just steps from the beach, numerous parks and some of the best schools in the country, so there will never be a shortage of fun and challenging activities nearby! We really enjoy traveling the world, trying new things, being outdoors, going to shows and sporting events, reading books, and visiting with our family and friends, and we can’t wait to share these same experiences with another child. We are also very fortunate to live within driving distance of most of our closest family and friends and to have a family lake house in Michigan, where we can spend weekends and summer vacations sharing fun traditions like campfires, water skiing and kayaking.
Education is also a very important part of our lives. Before starting our careers Dan received his Bachelors and Masters degrees in business and Kelly received her Bachelors and Masters degrees in education, and we hope to instill a similar passion for life-long learning in your child.
If we are blessed to be parents to your child, he or she will grow up always knowing how they joined our family and feeling proud of such a fun and exciting story! We will openly discuss the journey of how our family was created and we will happily share updates, photos and letters with you of your child's life and development. No matter what relationship you wish to have in the future, we want you to know that you will always be viewed very positively in your child’s life, that your child will know you made this tough decision out of love, and that you will always be part of our family’s thoughts, prayers and decisions.
We would consider adopting your child to be the greatest gift in our lives and will commit our entire existence to raising your child to be a good, intelligent and compassionate person and to providing him or her with all of the love, support and opportunities that are within our reach. We know you have a very difficult decision ahead of you and so much to consider and we sincerely thank you for taking the time to get to know us better.With love and warm regards,
Dan and Kelly
