We met during a summer college class and started dating a couple years later. We've been together for 12 years and married for 9 of those years. We have always wanted to add to our family, but unfortunately have not been able to. There have been a lot of disappointments and heartache during that time, but we just kept hoping and praying that one way or another we would bring a little one into our family. There was a point that we both knew we were ready to look into the adoption process and felt our hearts both were ready for that child, even if he/she was not ours biologically.
These 12 years we've really gotten to enjoy our lives together and with our fur-babies (who have been our "children" in so many ways). We have a great life together and are very happy! We both have great jobs that are steady and include a very flexible schedule. In our spare time, if we're not having a lazy/relaxing day, we like to play games, take our kayaks out to the river or lake, play with our dogs and cats, go camping and fishing, go to the movies or shopping, or enjoy time with our family and friends. We like trying some new things from time to time too; like earlier this year we just braved our way down our first zip lines! We also love going to amusement parks and live fairly close to a few larger ones. There's so many things that we can't wait to experience one day with our child too, like taking them on their first camping experience, or riding the rides at an amusement park. We will definitely treasure those moments, if given the opportunity.
We may never truly understand the very important decision you are making, but we want your child to know the sacrifices you made for them. We want him/her to understand where they came from and that their mother did a very selfless thing by allowing us to adopt them. We want you to know that we would be willing to send you letters and pictures, if you would like, and even exchange emails and calls in the future. This is something we can definitely discuss with you to see what you are comfortable with doing. Please know that we will always love this child and will be so proud to have them in our family.
Thank you so much for taking to time to get to know us and consider us as potential parents for your little one. We are blessed to have this opportunity and hope to have the final blessing of a beautiful child to enrich or lives. We wish you the best regardless of your decision.Thank you and God bless.
