Dear Expectant Mother,
Thank you for taking a moment to get to know us. First off, we truly respect and honor your openness in considering adoption for your child. If you choose us to be the parents for your child, please know that he or she will be loved tremendously and we will be eternally grateful for the selfless decision you made to trust us with such a precious gift.
Aaron and I are both pilots in the Air Force. After graduating college, I (Brooklynn) traveled to Calcutta, India and volunteered in an orphanage for special needs children. That was a life changing trip! I watched families of all different types opening their hearts and homes to children. Ever since witnessing the beauty of adoption and the difference it made in the lives of the children, I knew I would one day want to adopt with my significant other.
Aaron and I met in Mississippi while we were both Instructor Pilots in the same unit. When we started dating, I shared memories of my Calcutta experience with Aaron. Without hesitation, Aaron immediately agreed that building our family through adoption was something we both wanted to do as a couple. We are eagerly waiting to open our hearts and our home to another child.
We are so excited at the prospect of your child joining our little family! He or she would have two older sisters, Carys and Annalise who were born in January 2017 and January 2019 respectively. Carys is a sassy, energetic toddler and Annalise is an infant, learning all about the world around her. We would be thrilled to welcome our third child to the mix! It might seem crazy to want our children that close together in age but we both have very close relationships with our siblings and want the same for our children. Both Aaron and I have brothers, whom we were both close to in age, allowing us to literally grow, learn, and explore together during our childhood. Some of our fondest memories are of our adventures with our brothers, such as catching tadpoles, camping trips, hide and seek, and sleep overs at grandparents’ houses.
Now that we’re all adults, other than each other, we would both tell you our brothers are our best friends. Your child will be another one of our greatest joys, and we cannot wait to watch he or she grow and develop his or her own personality.
We live in a small, quiet neighborhood on the outskirts of town, a block away from a wonderful elementary school, an awesome park, and a short drive from our church. Our house might not be the largest, but it is filled with stories, laughter, and love. We also have one cat and two horses here at the house with us. Aaron and I love having pets and believe that raising children around them will help teach responsibility and provide a sense of accomplishment as they grow. If you choose to bless us with your child, he or she will have a fulfilling childhood surrounded by faith, family, friends, pets, and most importantly, love.
Our entire family is eager to welcome your child into the family. They can’t wait to share our family traditions such as making apple butter, camping trips, fishing, or heading over to Great Grandma and Grandpa's house on snowy Christmas mornings. Our families are large, crazy and fun, but your child would be surrounded with loving role models and mentors.
Words cannot express the gift your child would be to us. Thank for taking the time to read this, we would love to get to know you better. Whatever you decide, know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for taking the time to consider our family.
Aaron, Brooklynn, Carys, and Annalise
