feel as if we already know you in some special serendipitous way. Steve and I are so excited and scared at the
same time to embark into parenthood. We decided in May of 2016 after the birth
of our niece, Ella, to start a family of our own by adopting a baby. Through
the years, we have participated in raising several nieces and nephews but never had our own child. We
are now determined to pursue this adventure.
must first express our deepest gratitude to you for considering us as parents.
The gift of life is the most generous and unselfish act a human could offer to
another. Thank you. We are kind, fun,
compassionate, open- minded and loving. We love life and live it to the fullest. We also have a wonderful
support system comprised of family, friends and community. We live in a fantastic area to raise children
with wonderful parks, lakes, golf courses and some of the best schools in
America. We are good people and will love and nurture your child. We promise to teach them compassion, empathy,
humor, kindness and love (maybe how to swing a golf club).
day we decided to pursue adopting a baby was May 24, 2016 after we held my new
niece in the hospital. Steve and I both got in the car and started crying over
the feeling we had holding this baby. As
we drove the 40 miles home we both decided to adopt and we haven’t looked back
since making the decision. Steve’s best
friend adopted 2 children years ago so we quickly called them to discuss their
journey and give us advice. We want to be the best parents possible and give a
baby the most wonderful caring environment to follow their own dreams.
husband Steve is a natural with children. He is the uncle you call to drive you
to a hockey game, pick you up at baseball practice or buy you some candy and a
treat. He is a kind, sensitive, and
compassionate with big and little people. I see him at a baseball game or soccer
game coaching our future son or daughter, providing tips on how to better play
the game as a true sportsman. He will be
the reliable dad attending every game, concert and event like he is as an
uncle. I think he will be the more
patient parent, better to handle the spilled milk, paint on the wall or stain on
the clothing. He is the calm, reliable go-to guy. He is built to be dad. I will be the rock for encouragement and the
teacher to a child with unconditional love.
hope you can see the excitement in our letter, thank you for considering us, and
we hope you pick us.
Meaghan and Steve
