Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us. We admire your courage and strength in considering your child's future and we're grateful that you're considering us. We hope that the words and images here are a reflection of our wonderful family, the joy that being a parent brings to our lives, and our desire to raise another child.
We know that there are many things to consider when choosing a family. We hope that you'll consider our experience as parents and our love of family and dedication to always making it our first priority.
We are loving, married dads. We have a happy home, centering our life around time together and with our extended families: We sit down to dinner together every night and have dinner with Matthew's parents every Sunday. Our home is a gathering place for birthdays and holidays; we love hosting Mother's Day and Thanksgiving dinner. Because we are usually away from home at Easter, we host a turkey egg hunt every Thanksgiving day. We place a priority on creating happy memories together every day.
Our first experience adopting was with our son, Max. Max knows and loves hearing his story: how he came to be our son, where he was born, what he was like as a baby, and how his birth mother made an incredible sacrifice in placing him with us. He is proud of his heritage and we have placed a great emphasis on his learning about his culture and history, as well as his native language. Since Max is Hispanic, we are committed to growing our family in a diverse way. We love and embrace diversity. We believe that different cultures and experiences enrich our lives.
We value education. We want our children to reach their full potential and to learn in a supportive, diverse school environment with the goal of completing a college education. We value a strong work ethic, making a positive contribution to every endeavor, and responsibility. We seek to demonstrate those values in our work and family life, and we encourage them in our son by volunteering, completing household tasks, and managing school work.
We strive to teach our son the importance of service, to give back to his community, to care for those less fortunate, and to always be good and kind to others.
We want you to know that we welcome you into our family, if that's what you wish. We plan to send you updates, pictures and letters with keepsakes. We hope that you will be open to maintaining communication with us. We promise that we will always speak of you with the enormous respect you deserve, as we have done for our son's birth mother. You have made a decision to give us an incredible gift and we will always be grateful to you.
We hope that you will see in our family two loving, devoted dads and a wonderful, sensitive and kind older sibling for your child.
With love and deepest respect,
Matthew and Rob
