Meredith & Cassandra
Thank you for taking your time and considering us as potential parents to your child. With this opportunity we have so much love and devotion to give. We feel that the love we have to offer will provide your child with a beautiful life. We understand that this decision can be difficult and hope that you find comfort in sharing this journey with us.
Our Leisure Time
Trying new things and going on adventures is something we very much enjoy.
We are both soccer fans and often travel to see our favorite team compete. Whenever the World Cup is in season we often have our friends and their kids over to enjoy the game. Football Sundays are also a time for us to watch our favorite teams and laugh and cook with friends.
When we are not watching sports we try to stay active through running, riding our bikes and yoga. Being active plays an important role in our lives. Our dogs love to explore and we like bringing them to our beach and having them play.
We also enjoy going to the theater. We love to attend plays/musicals and comedy shows. We also enjoy going to concerts to see our favorite performers.
On rainy days we enjoy reading a book, doing our puzzles or playing Monopoly.
Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other
Meredith About Cassandra: Things that made me fall in love with Cassandra are her selfless acts of kindness, resilience and determination to always achieve her dreams. I've always admired her calming presence and ability to just be in the moment. My brother and I often call her a "superhero," not only because she serves her town in law enforcement, caring for the safety and well being of so many but also because she is an amazing athlete, dancer and built with so much inner strength. Cassandra has always been the balance in my life. She will be an amazing mother.
Cassandra About Meredith: One of the things I love the most about Meredith is her passion. She is strong and will always fight for what she believes in. She has core moral values and family is very important to her. I couldn't have picked a better person to begin a family with. She is a loyal friend and has a giving heart. I believe she will make a great mom to our child.
Our Cultural Heritage
Cassandra grew up in Guyana and moved to the United States when she was 12. At this time it was a third world country and she leaned the value of hard work and perseverance. Guyana is a family oriented country and family plays an important role in her life. Food is important to the culture which is one of the reasons why she loves to cook. She and her sister video chat regularly and love to share photos of their meals. Moving to the US she brought her culture with her and continues to be proud of where she came from.
Meredith was raised in a large Italian American family. She grew up in a home with her parents and Grandmother. Her grandmother was an essential part of her life focusing often on stories of family in Italy, attending church and cooking gravy on Sundays and always spending time with her cousins. This has carried on with the generation and now Meredith and Cassandra are often with extended family and their children spending time together.
Our House and Neighborhood
The appeal to moving to our home was how family focused our town is and living near the beach.
Our neighborhood is similar to a beach community with people often walking their dogs, riding their bikes and gathering at small cafes and ice cream stands.
Our house has a view of the beach and a relaxing fenced-in backyard. We have two bedrooms and recently remodeled the entire home. We have an open layout which helps with hosting gatherings. Next door is a family with two young kids and we are lucky to have our best friends with a toddler living close by.
There is something for every season here. On the Fourth of July our beach hosts the town fireworks, every October there is a pumpkin festival and every weekend in the summer are family events, festivals and live music. In the heart of our town is a beautiful green. This green is surrounded by restaurants for families and hosts holiday parades and the Christmas tree lighting. Our town is also fortunate to have a splash pad and multiple playgrounds.
Our Extended Families
Family is incredibly important to us. Meredith has one brother and Cassandra is the oldest of four. Meredith's parents are retired and they live in the same town as her brother which is close by. Cassandra's mother and stepfather live in New York while her father and siblings live in Guyana.
With Meredith's parents living close by we get together regularly and enjoy having Sunday dinners together. We love going on adventures with our niece and nephew and attending their Saturday sports.
Holidays are import and we divide them between both families. Christmas Eve is spent with Meredith's cousins which is always very special. Christmas morning we spend with Cassandra's family cooking and watching holiday movies. Our child will love time with their cousins. They will have the joy of being active outside, swimming, having family movie nights and traveling to Cape Cod. Cape Cod has always been special to our family and we are excited for our child to have these memories. These memories that we have shared with our families are what we hold close to our hearts and look forward to sharing them with our child.
From Us to You
We are humbled and grateful that you are taking your time to consider us as potential adoptive parents. This has been a dream of ours since we became a couple and is not a decision we take lightly. We know that this is a very difficult journey and we admire your strength and selflessness. With this letter we hope you find peace of mind in your decision in getting to know us. Please know that you have our full support throughout it all.
We met ten years ago through a mutual friend and began a relationship a few years later. We have been married for four years and have learned to tackle the world together. Communication is key to any relationship and we always maintain an open line. Our strength as a couple has prepared us for this journey and we are excited to grow our family. We have begun our own family traditions and look forward to sharing them with our future child.
Cassandra is a police officer and enjoys interacting with different people and keeping her community safe. She loves helping those in need and learning something new every day. Meredith is a therapist who has found her passion working with children and families. Her work has made an impact in the community and she is now beginning to work in the school system.
For our future child, we believe in fostering the importance of love, respect and honestly. Through guidance we hope to nurture their interests, talents and goals. Education is very important to us and we hope to provide them with the best. At the end of the day it is all about raising a good person who is caring and has strong work ethics, morals and values.
We are fortunate to have unconditional love and support from our family and friends. Time spent with our family is always cherished. We both come from closet knit families which is very important to us and has helped shape who we have become as individuals and also as a loving couple. Our future child will be raised in a home of love and support where their needs will be met.
We are a biracial couple and welcome diversity to our family. We both come from different backgrounds and have loved getting to learn about different cultures and communities. We are committed to learning about where our child comes from and celebrating them in every way. To us it is important that our child is connected to where they came from so that it can help mold them as a person.
As the years pass we are happy to be in written contact through American Adoptions and we're happy to exchange pictures as well. We are excited to get to know you and look forward to working together to maintain a healthy relationship. Once again we admire you for your brave decision and we will always respect your choice. You will always be a part of our child's life.
