Chadwick & Elizabeth
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about our family. To us, being an amazing parent means being a loving spouse, and modeling how to love and respect one another. It means being present and making time for each other and our family. It also means showing our child how to work hard, accept responsibility, forgive, help others, and most importantly, to have fun.
Our Lives as Educators
We believe all babies are born learners. We know the critical role we play in determining what our child will become. Our background in education will also play a vital role in their growth and development.
We are both educators in a very large and diverse district. Elizabeth started her teaching career in a first grade dual-language classroom and fell in love with teaching and her first grade students. Currently, she is a reading specialist on an elementary campus. She coaches, trains, and models best practices to teachers in grades PK-2. The happiest time of her day is spent teaching students how to read and seeing them smile when they are successful.
Chadwick began his teaching career as a communications teacher at the campus' ninth grade center. Currently, Chadwick is a technology teacher at one of the largest high schools in the state. Chadwick is also an assistant head coach of the boy's basketball team. He consistently strives to support his students on and off of the court.
We both have experience in different areas and ages of education. Just as we do everything we can to help our classroom children, we will do whatever it takes to help this child. Whether it be teaching them letters and sounds, how to write their name, to love reading, or to be responsible and independent. If we cannot help them, we have resources and contacts available to us because of the connections we have made throughout the district.
Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other
Elizabeth About Chadwick: Chadwick is one of the most genuine people I know. He is kind, gentle, and honest. These are just a few of the reasons I fell in love with him. Every day he tries to make me happy and smile. Chadwick strives to see the good in every situation even in those moments that seem impossible. I love how much he truly cares for the team he coaches and the students he works with every day. I admire how much he does for them outside of the classroom. I could not imagine a better daddy for any child.
Chadwick About Elizabeth: Elizabeth is a strong independent woman who has helped grow me into the man I am today. I admire the drive and selflessness she exhibits with her students and teachers. I love that Elizabeth pushes her students and teachers to be successful even against insurmountable odds. She cherishes the opportunity to be a mentor and friend to her students. I have never met a person who has such drive and determination to make her students happy and see them succeed. Any child will be fortunate to have mom like her. I have no doubt she will be the most amazing mommy that will love your child unconditionally.
What It Means to Become Parents
Becoming parents would mean the world to us. We have not been able to have one of our own and want a child more than anything. To us, being a parent is the most rewarding and remarkable thing we could ever do. We expect some sleepless nights but we know we will love every minute we get to be together. We expect to love being together as a family. We cannot wait to take trips to the children's museum or take a family trip to the zoo. We are also extra excited to spend holidays together. We always do it up for most holidays and are extremely excited to celebrate with the baby. We cannot wait until the baby is old enough to participate in these traditions. Putting decorations out and on the trees, baking cookies, opening presents, dying Easter eggs, celebrating birthdays. All holidays were special to us when we grew up and we look forward to loving those moments together with the baby and all of our family.
Our House and Neighborhood
We live in a very popular family community just outside of a metropolitan city in Texas. Our diverse neighborhood is full of young working families and children of all ages. We live in a one story three bedroom home. Our home is located near a clubhouse that has a lot of amenities including a golf course.
As you enter the front door of our home, you walk in to an open entryway with a dining room to the right. The entry leads to a big family room and kitchen area. That is our favorite room because it is so open and comfortable. One hall leads to the guest bedroom, nursery, and bathroom. Another hall leads to the master bed and bath. At the back of the house we have a door that leads to the fenced in yard.
Our beautiful neighborhood has mature trees, several walking paths, and a playground for families to use. It also has a pool and splash pad for residents to cool off with during the summer. Our favorite time of the year is during the winter holidays. Our community hosts an annual hay ride for everyone in the month of December. Families can ride around with cocoa and look at the amazing lights and decorations.
Luckily, we are about 15 miles away from a diverse city. We are close to tons of children's museums, theaters, and a pretty amazing zoo. Being close to such a large city means we have a lot of activities at our fingertips.
Our Extended Families
We have an amazing and supportive extended family close by. It has been fantastic to have their support so close to us. Literally, you turn right out of our neighborhood and after about a mile you run into Elizabeth's parent's house. Then, you turn left out of our neighborhood and about a mile later you run into Chadwick's mom's house. Both grandparents are so close. All of the grandparents are crazy excited to spoil this baby daily.
Elizabeth grew up with a lot of extended family around. The majority of Elizabeth's family is in Ohio while one cousin is in California. Elizabeth has one brother in Ohio that is married and has one son. Elizabeth loves being able to see and spend some time with her nephew. Elizabeth and her nephew are both obsessed with Christmas and the decorations that go with it. In fact, last year we bought our nephew Jake a matching "frosty" Christmas tree that he could put in his bedroom. We also have a very loving and excepting Grandfather in Ohio, as well as, several aunts, uncles, and cousins that cannot wait to meet and hold the new addition to the family.
Chadwick was an only child but never felt alone. Chadwick was always involved in sports year round with his dad coaching his teams and his mom in the stands cheering at every game. After all of the years, Chadwick's mom can still be found in the stands cheering him on at every basketball game he coaches. Chadwick's basketball team started a tradition years ago to hug her before every game. The tradition continues and Chadwick's team can't wait to see her cheering them on to victory.
From Us to You
We can only imagine what you might be going through right now. What we do know, is that this decision is very difficult and we both would like you to know that we truly admire your courage. We are humbled and honored that you are reading our letter. Hopefully, you will be able to gain insight into our lives and see the love and security we have to offer.
We have been married for six years and have so much love to give. Since the beginning of our marriage in 2011, we've known that we wanted to start a family. Shortly after we were married our struggle to have children became apparent. Through our faith in God and support of each other, we realized that there was another plan for us and our dream to become parents. We are strongly committed to opening our hearts and sharing all of the love we have with your child.
Please know that your child will be welcomed into a loving and stable family. We are very much in love with each other and look forward to sharing our love with your baby. We take advantage of every opportunity we have to spend time together, not only time alone but also with our families and friends. We enjoy entertaining at our home. We've had gatherings for everything from birthday parties to Thanksgiving and Christmas day festivities. Our home has become a popular gathering place for our family and friends. We look forward to building memories and traditions with your child.
We both have a love and passion towards education. Both of us are teachers and absolutely love what we do. Elizabeth is a reading specialist for grades PK-2. She loves working with teachers and students on a daily basis. Elizabeth can not wait to see the kids grow as the year progresses. Chadwick works with high school students in grades 9-12 as a technology teacher. Chadwick's greatest purpose is to be a role model for his students. He strives to lead his students to be independent kind individuals and challenges them to give back to others. He utilizes these same principles while coaching on the basketball court.
Being in education makes us a unique couple because we are always off nights, weekends, and major holidays. Being in the same district, we will have a lot of family time together during the holidays because we have the same days off. This is a great time to form our own family traditions and spend time with our extended family. We also both have summers off. This offers us even more time to spend together as a family. We can go on vacations, go to different activities in the city, volunteer at an animal shelter, or spend some lazy summer days at home together.
You are and will always be significant to us and our family. We welcome your continued investment in your child's life. We are happy to send email updates, with pictures and stories, as well as, letters with keepsakes that mark milestones in your child's life. That way you can see how he or she has grown and how much they are loved and cared for. We are eager to know you and happy to work together to maintain a happy and healthy relationship. We make a commitment to you that we will always speak highly of you and honor you with our words and actions. From our perspective, you have made a brave decision and we will always admire and respect you for your choice. Our gratitude for your selflessness will be evident throughout your child's life in our home.
Words cannot express how ready we are to become parents and we know that it would not be possible without your strength and courage.
