From Us to You

Dear Expectant Mother,

The greatest gift you can give is life itself. Considering adoption for your baby is probably the hardest decision you will ever have to make. We have tried to have children on our own for many years with no success. However, we never lost faith that we would be blessed with a family, and we are more excited than ever to start this new journey in adoption.

The beginning of our relationship is rather unique because Holly’s mom set us up on our first date. We first met at a bowling banquet, and both really enjoyed each other’s company. Sparks flew and we immediately started dating. We quickly realized how much our relationship was turning into something very special. We have had a blessed relationship because we communicate well, make decisions together, and truly love spending time with each other every day. Adopting a child is the next step for us to start a family and start a new chapter in our loving relationship.

As a couple we enjoy participating in many activities such as going to fine restaurants for seafood, Italian, Mexican or a steakhouse, enjoying an evening at the movies (we like action and comedy), going to the beach, going to professional sporting events, Pirates, Steelers, and Penquins, or even staying home cuddling on the couch watching TV shows (such as NCIS, Chicago PD, Chicago Med, and Chicago Fire). Over the years we have cherished the opportunity to have our niece and nephew stay over at our house. It is a treat for us to spend quality time with the children and take them to different events in the area. When they are over, we go to baseball games, play board games, watch movies, take nature walks, visit the local beaches, or go to the zoo.

When Jason was born he was placed for adoption and was blessed to have wonderful adoptive parents. Since he was adopted himself, he has always had a desire to adopt a child and give them every great opportunity that he received growing up. After we fell in love, we discussed the possibilities of adopting a child. We are both extremely excited about the opportunity of adopting your child and starting a new journey together as a family.

We firmly believe that in order to be great parents, it is important for us to have strong family values. As a future mother and father, we believe that we need to teach our children core values such as honesty, hard work, a good education, and the importance of spending quality time together. We realize that children can easily be influenced and we understand that we need to be role models for our children. We do not take this opportunity lightly and are eager to raise our children to have good morals.

We look forward to getting to know you in the near future. We would be glad to send you photos and correspondence about your child as they are growing up over the years. We are very thankful that you are allowing us to make all of our dreams come true. We can only imagine how difficult this is for you and want you to know that we will support you all the way through this process.

Our goal is to adopt multiple children and create a large loving family. We really hope that you consider helping us to start this process by choosing us to adopt your child.

About Holly

As everyone knows, the hardest part of dating someone new is meeting their parents. I was lucky enough to be friends with all of Holly’s family before I met her. From the very first time that I met Holly, I knew that she was the one for me. Holly is a loving and caring individual who enjoys life so much that it makes me want to spend the rest of my life with her. Ever since I have known her, she was always helping other friends and family members by babysitting their kids. It was nice to see how children loved spending time with her and this made me realize how she would be a great mother. These are the type of qualities that I was always looking for and when I realized that Holly was a perfect match for me, I excitedly asked her to marry me. This was the best decision that I have ever made in my life. Ever since we got married, I have enjoyed coming home from work to spend time with my loving wife. We are both very excited to grow our family through adoption and start a new chapter in our marriage.

About Jason

Jason and I met in a unique way. He met the rest of my family through a bowling league before we were introduced to each other. My mom and Jason became close friends while bowling together every week. As their friendship progressed, my mother convinced me to join the bowling league and it was at this point that I noticed his smile. When I first met him, I realized that Jason has a great personality and I wanted to spend more time with him. As we started dating I realized that we both had a lot of common goals in life. He has always been a great listener and has always had the ability to make me laugh. He makes me a better person because we work together as a couple to achieve our goals. At this point, I realized I finally found my true love and I wanted to spend the rest of my life with him and start a family. I feel that I am truly blessed knowing that I get to wake up every day next to the man I fell in love with. True love is so hard to find and I am so glad that I found mine and I will be able to spend the rest of my life with him.

Why We Are Choosing to Adopt

Jason was adopted and blessed to have wonderful adoptive parents. Since he and his brother were both adopted, he has always had a desire to adopt multiple children and give them every opportunity that he and his brother received growing up. After we fell in love, we discussed the possibilities of adopting children. We love children and over the years have had the pleasure of watching our friends’ children grow up and be part of their lives. Our first goal was to have two children of our own and then adopt one or two more. We would love to conceive our own children but unfortunately, we are unable to. This is why we have decided to adopt children. We are both extremely excited about adopting multiple children and starting a new journey together as a family. Jason has always been extremely proud of the fact that he was adopted and is grateful to his adoptive parents for giving him a wonderful life full of many opportunities. Since Jason was adopted as an infant, he has always wanted to adopt children and give them the same great life that his adoptive parents gave him.

Our Lifestyle

We live a peaceful lifestyle in a quiet and children-friendly neighborhood. We love walking our 3 Labrador Retrievers (Gunner, Hayes, & Duke) through our lovely neighborhood and talking with our neighbors. We enjoy having our niece and nephew come over and spend a few days at a time with us at our peaceful home. We love taking our niece and nephew to the local zoo, Seawolves baseball games, movie theater, going to the local beach, or even just staying home for a fun-filled night of card and board games. Every night we spend time in our fenced-in backyard playing with Hayes, Gunner, and Duke. This is the perfect way to end each day with our lovely furbabies.

Our Dogs

We adopted all three of our current dogs and each one came into our life under unique circumstances. Gunner was the first one that we adopted. His previous family got him and realized how much work it was to care for a young 6-month-old puppy. They wanted to find a good home for him and we accepted the challenge. Hayes was actually saved from a kill shelter in Kentucky and brought to our local community. Hayes is a large purebred Labrador and had a really rough upbringing. He was at an adoption center where Jason volunteers his time. Last, but not least, is our youngest Duke. Duke’s previous owners took him into our vet’s office with a broken paw. They would not pay to have it fixed and waned to take him home. The vet’s office would not let that happen and had the couple sign the rights to Duke over to them. After the vet fixed Duke up, they started to look for a home for him. They had us meet Duke and asked if we would take him home to care for him. We couldn’t say no to his adorable little face so we said yes. We now have three lovable Labrador Retrievers who are full of energy and love to play. They also love to lounge on the couch when we are watching TV or cleaning the house. We enjoy taking them for walks around our neighborhood. All of our furbabies love going on rides so they can hang their head out of the window and feel the fresh air against their face. They are adorable to watch with their big floppy ears flapping in the wind while they have their heads out the window. Our niece and nephew love spending time and playing with Hayes, Gunner, and Duke when they spend a few nights with us.

Home and Neighborhood

We live in a ranch-style home located in a quiet family-oriented neighborhood. Our home includes three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a completely finished basement that has a family room and exercise room. We currently live in the suburbs located 15-20 outside a major metropolitan city. Our neighborhood is a great place to raise a family since there are many families currently with different age groups. Throughout the day you can find children riding bikes, playing sports, or even walking the family dog. Since this neighborhood is such a safe place to raise a family, one of our biggest traditions throughout the year is Halloween. Many parents from other parts of this town and neighboring towns bring their children to our neighborhood so they can see all the Halloween decorations and ensure the kids have a fun and safe trick or treat night. During trick or treat, our lovely small-town police and fire department continually drive through the neighborhood handing out treats to all of the children and make sure that everyone stays safe.

Our location allows us lots of amenities such as the beach, professional sports teams, museums, art galleries, shopping centers, amusement parks, playgrounds, nature parks, and many more family-oriented destinations.

Traditions

We love spending time with our family. Jason loves cooking big dinners on Thanksgiving and Christmas for our families to gather and spend time together. Our favorite tradition is going to a Pittsburgh Pirates game with Jason’s aunt every summer. Every weekend we go to the local butcher shop, pick out some nice thick steaks, and have a nice barbeque on the grill. his is always a great way to begin our weekend. Jason loves to marinate and use dry rub on the steaks while Holly is inside cooking some corn on the cob and other sides to complete the meal. In the summertime, we love to take Hayes, Gunner, and Duke on a drive to the local ice cream shop. It is great to see all three of them with their heads stuck out the window enjoying all of the fresh air. Then, they each receive a special ice cream treat consisting of ice cream and a doggie biscuit. The look on their face as they eat their treat is priceless. During the summertime, we love taking our furbabies to all of the local town celebrations and fireman picnics.

Hobbies

We both enjoy a wide variety of hobbies. Our mutual hobbies include taking our furbabies for walks and bowling. Jason’s personal hobbies are playing golf, card games, riding his bike, woodworking, playing in a dart league, and playing fantasy sports. Holly’s personal hobbies are reading books, especially in front of the fireplace in the winter, cross-stitching, gardening flowers, swimming, baking, and taking painting classes.

How We Spend a Three Day Weekend

When we have the opportunity of spending a three day weekend together, we enjoy doing many activities in the local area that we are blessed to have around us. Some of these actives include going to dinner, the movie theater, the beach, watching the Seawolves baseball team, watching the Otters hockey team, as well as spending time with our lovable furbabies. We also enjoy working on projects around the house together to update and/or improve different rooms in the house. Changing the paint color in rooms, changing light fixtures, or completely rearranging the furniture is a fun way for us to spend time together. Going outside and planting more flowers, trimming the bushes, and cleaning out the garage are other activities we enjoy doing with each other. Grilling some steaks, sitting on the deck with some fresh homemade iced tea, and enjoying the beautiful sunset behind our house is the best way to end the day here at our happy homestead.

What Kind of Parents We Will Be

First of all, we will be loving and caring parents. We will cherish every moment that we have with our children. We realize that we need to make time to spend with our children in order to make life long memories. We will make sure we take many vacations as a family to help keep us connected to each other. These types of bonding experiences are very important because most people can remember the experiences they had with their parents when growing up. We want to create as many enjoyable memories as possible as a family. We will also be the parents that take an interest in their children’s learning since education is very important in future success. We will encourage our children to be involved in extracurricular activities. This will help them meet new friends and also to learn teamwork as well. We will be the type of family that will have dinners all together at the table This will allow us to talk about how each other’s day went and to keep our bond strong.

What We Will Teach

First and foremost, the most important part of parenthood to us is to raise our children with good morals. Family values like proper manners, being courteous to others, a good education, hard work, integrity, kindness, forgiveness, and treating others as you want to be treated are extremely important to us and we would like to raise our children with the same values. We realize that the best way to teach our children these values is to lead by example. We understand that each person has a unique personality and you need to treat each person differently in order for them to succeed in life. We want all of our children to set high goals in life for themselves. We will help and support them to achieve whatever it is that they want to do with their lives.

What Adoption Means to Us

Adopting children means everything to us. We have always wanted to have a family and are unable to conceive on our own. We love going over to our friends’ and family’s homes and playing with all of the children there. We both seem to relate to children very well and they love spending time with us. We believe that is because we are both still kids in our hearts and minds. We love each other very much and have a wonderful life together, but our life will be so much more special after we adopt children and start the next phase of our life together as a family.

Our Promise to You

We will share as much about you and your story as you would like us to share. We realize that every birth mother has different perspectives on this subject, so we will leave the decision up to you. Since Jason was adopted himself, he was informed about his birth parents by his adoptive parents and he really appreciated this. We firmly believe that our children should know about their adoption story and will divulge as much information as you are comfortable with. We often imagine what our first moment will be like with your baby. As we are wiping our tears from our faces, we would thank God you choose us to raise your beautiful precious baby. We will never be able to thank you enough for the most perfect gift that you gave us. We will cherish your child with all of our hearts and promise we will do everything in our power to provide your child with a happy and loving home, life, and future.
