From Us to You

Dear Expectant Mother,

We want to thank you for considering us as adoptive parents in raising your child. We already admire your courage and strength in making the consideration of adoption for your child. We are elated at becoming first time parents through adoption. As adoptive parents, we will provide the same unconditional love and growth that you have envisioned for your baby.

In December 2010, our lives changed forever when we accepted an invitation from mutual friends visiting for the holidays. While our paths had crossed many times before at other social gatherings, it wasn’t until that night when fate struck and we had our first conversation. This conversation started our journey together as a couple and eventually marriage in August 2013. Since our marriage began we have enjoyed many blessings and have had the privilege of travel adventures including Italy, Vietnam and the Grand Canyon. When we aren’t traveling we enjoy music, dancing, sports, outdoor activities, spa days and cooking together. Our favorite shared activities are family and friend gatherings as our families are the foundation of who we are today.

We were both raised in loving, faith-filled homes that provided the best in education, guidance and everyday fun that a child needs for personal growth. Seth started working with his family’s vending company at the age of 4. You can say his arithmetic lessons began when counting how many Snickers were needed to fill up a row of candy slots. Nancy has fond memories of traditional Italian family get-togethers that included pasta dinners, singing, not ready for Broadway performances and playing cards with her grandparents. Both of our parents were big supporters of our activities that included baseball, hockey, ice skating and cheerleading. Secondary to faith, education was a priority. We both had a great education from grammar school to college which led to successful careers in sales and finance.

Our families include both sets of loving parents, 3 siblings, 8 nieces and nephews, and extended families that cannot wait to welcome your child and provide the same love and respect that we all share for each other. Seth’s family lives about 4 hours away and Nancy’s parents, siblings and nieces live about 20 minutes away and will be able to provide additional support. Our extended family also includes loving friends with children who have already offered play dates and future prom dates.

We have a great love for children and we are ready to begin the next chapter in our marriage journey. Nancy has been around children all her life. She enjoyed babysitting and being a camp counselor when she was younger. Nancy is a loving aunt and actively participates in her niece’s dance recitals, traditional Easter egg hunts, baking Christmas cookies, sleepovers and one-on-one time. Seth is a kid at heart who is always looking forward to dressing up for next Halloween. Children, including his two nephews, gravitate to him. Seth’s nephews live out of state but frequent visits with them include special time playing baseball and video games.

In preparation for our dream of starting a family, we purchased a new home where we have envisioned raising your child. It has three bedrooms and bathrooms, a fenced in backyard for playtime and entertainer’s space for family and friend gatherings. The neighborhood has a large community of families and a park for children who wish to participate in sports, arts and crafts, music or other activities. We would love to take your child to baseball games and nearby beaches to play. Seth loves to cook and looks forward to providing lessons and having a new sous chef.

Since we found each other later in life, it is our belief that God’s plan is for us to become adoptive parents. We have been blessed with each other, our family and friends. We know our lives will change forever with the gift of a child. At the center of our hearts is a promise to you to raise your baby with love, faith, stability and access to life’s opportunities. We cannot wait to share our experiences and start a new chapter with your child.

Thank you for reviewing our story. We are excited to learn more about you and would be humbled should you choose us to be your child’s adoptive parents. Our prayers and thoughts are with you during this miraculous journey which we pray to share with you.

With love and admiration,
Seth and Nancy

Our Lifestyle

Seth and Nancy’s lifestyles are very family-oriented with activities that include get-together meals and celebrations, attending award presentations, dance recitals and karate tournaments.

Seth loves to cook and finds the kitchen the best form of relaxation and increased creativity. The most popular dishes and repeated requests are for Seth’s buttermilk deep fried chicken sliders, Cuban flank steak and 5 cheese baked mac and cheese. Nancy loves to bake, sing, hike, photography and plan for our next travel adventure. Every Christmas holiday the requests for Nancy’s magic layer bars become larger than the previous years.

As a couple we love to travel and learn about how other cultures live, experience different foods, arts and educate ourselves on the historical significance of the cities we visit. We also love the opportunity to spend time outside and enjoy the little things nature provides us.

Why We Are Choosing To Adopt

We have a great love for children and cannot wait to start a new chapter together through the blessing of adoption. We want nothing more than to the opportunity to love, educate and provide the means for a child to succeed. We want to open our home to a child and give the same unconditional love and support that we received from our parents. We will also provide the best in education for your child’s growth and make sure he/she will participate in a variety of activities to enrich his/her life.

Nancy has always been around children that includes her six nieces and other friend’s kids. She is Godmother to three and is constantly playing a large part in their lives both socially and spiritly. Nancy has fond memories of babysitting each one of her nieces, playing board games, baking cookies and organizing impromptu playhouse time to stimulate their creative side. Seth jumps at the opportunity to teach his nephews anything sports related, such as baseball, but also helps with everyday challenges as the boys get older.

Our Traditions

Seth, Nancy and family members look forward to their annual rental house on Lake Michigan. The time spent with the family provides for the ultimate in relaxation, meals, laughs and beach time for fun and sunset watching. Certain holidays like New Year’s Day and 4th of July are reserved for family and friends as we partake in a friendly appetizer contest and a day of fondue fun!

Our families are big sports fans and we look forward to attending college football and baseball games. We love to celebrate Nancy’s Irish heritage by watching the city dye the river green during St. Patrick’s Day.

About Seth & Nancy

Nancy about Seth: I knew right away that Seth was the person I wanted to share my life with and grow together as a couple. My sister stated at our wedding that I have traveled all over the world only to experience my greatest adventure in finding Seth locally. My husband is ALWAYS positive as he finds the good in any experience. Seth is a hard worker at his job and personal life and always aims to better our experiences together. He spoils me with little things that are greatly appreciated like cooking dinners, packed lunches, “just because” flowers and coffee in the morning. Seth is exceptional around his nephews and other kids as they feed off his positive energy and want to play. Seth has a deep appreciation for music which was influenced by his father who shared that same passion. He also loves gardening, golf, baseball and other outdoor activities that he shares with me, family members and friends. It is amazing that until Seth walked into my life how I could get this far without him.

Seth about Nancy: Nancy is a lightning rod of energy that gives me the additional strength to accomplish almost anything. Whether I am tackling home improvement projects or generating business opportunities, Nancy is the first one to assure me everything will turn out for the best because she believes in my abilities. When we first met, I was immediately drawn to Nancy’s selfless, warm personality as seen within our circle of friends, family and anyone else lucky enough to be associated with her. For years she has organized holiday cookie bakes and Easter egg coloring with our nieces to maintain a close family bond. She also loves to spread cheer by singing in the company choir and to senior citizens during the holidays. When there is time, Nancy’s adventurous spirit fuels her passion for nature hikes, horseback riding, skiing, ice skating and rock climbing. Furthermore, Nancy is a member of the local sculling organization for outdoor rowing fun!

How We Met

This was the best way to nearly ring in the New Year as we met at the end of December, 2010. We both had out-of-town mutual friends invite us out for the evening. Call it fate or great timing but over the span of 12 years our paths kept crossing at different events. That night we had our first conversation which led to multiple dinners, concerts, sporting events and then our marriage in 2013. Since our marriage we have shared so many new adventures together and purchased a house that we hope one day will include an adopted child of our own.

Typical 3-day Weekend

We both love to travel. Given a 3-day weekend we would prefer to relax on a beachfront in some quaint little town that offers unique places to eat and window shop, as well as sail into the warm summer sunset. In the winter, we love to take a quick weekend getaway at a nearby resort for outside activities like skiing or tubing. Nancy is more the avid skier but Seth is looking forward to taking lessons with his future son or daughter. We love to take advantage of long weekends by visiting Seth’s out-of-town family members who are a short car ride away.

Relationship With Our Parents

We both have great relationships with our parents and a strong foundation with our entire family.

As a child, Seth’s parents were very nurturing and had a positive influence on all of his activities.
At an early age, Seth worked with his parents and grandparents in the family business. Both Seth and his father enjoyed working together so much that their relationship grew into his dad coaching Seth’s little league baseball teams. Seth’s mom was an excellent cook that included breads, soups, pasta dishes and a family tradition, pasties. She helped fuel his passion for cooking as it is today. Both parents enjoyed various forms of music which led to Seth’s appreciation for any style of music. Furthermore, Seth has fond memories of playing baseball with his extended family of all ages.

At an early age, Nancy’s relationship with her parents was very similar to Seth’s upbringing. Her parents were very supportive of all her activities that included musicals, dance performances and cheerleading events. The bond between Nancy and her parents is so great that her mom said she missed Nancy’s singing around house when she left for college.

Nancy has fond memories as a child spending time with her extended family, including playing many games of bocce and basketball. Nancy, along with her siblings and cousins, participated in garage band performances while singing the greatest hits of their time. After dinner and dessert, Nancy would learn card games from her grandparents until it was time to go home.

Our Faith

Together our journey of faith has evolved as we became new parishioners to a Catholic Church in our neighborhood. Seth went through its RCIA program to become part of the Catholic faith while Nancy, who was Seth’s spiritual sponsor, was raised Catholic. We enjoy the spiritual presence and the strong sense of community the Church provides. Families that attend the services are of all ages and support one another. Strong faith coupled with a supportive community is an ideal atmosphere in which we want to raise our child.

We believe having faith is key in our everyday lives. Through prayers we obtain the additional strength and spiritual guidance to proceed with the challenges we are faced. Our faith also teaches us to treat others with equality and kindness.

Nancy volunteers her efforts with the elderly and homeless programs. We volunteer our services for fundraising events, such the Church’s annual gala event, block party and other programs that raise money for charitable organizations. Since Seth enjoys cooking, he is trying to arrange his time to help prepare meals for the homeless.

What We Will Teach

A child is a gift from God. If we are blessed with the opportunity in raising your child, then we will pass on the same knowledge that we have learned from our parents. Our child will learn that life is not perfect but through faith and hard work many things can be accomplished. He/she will also treat others as equals and with the same respect he/she wants to be treated.

We will teach our child not be afraid of the unknown but learn about it and embrace what life has to offer. We will expose our child to music and the arts, food, academics, sports and other worldly surroundings to help build his/her character.

To Our Birthmother

We will be talking about adoption at an early age, especially during the child’s developmental milestones so he or she will know that adoption is part of their history. We will also tell our child that their birth mother had the courage to place their care in our hands. She felt that our faith, household, family and other opportunities were ideal for her child’s growth which could not be provided by her at the time.

>

Our Promise To You

We want the birth mother to know the overwhelming joy she has provided us and the appreciation of raising her child. While this was a difficult journey please note your child will be raised in a safe and secure home and be given opportunities for a good upbringing. Your child will be extremely loved by not only us but also an entire family who supports and cares for one another.
