Dear Expectant Mother,
We truly respect and honor your openness in considering
adoption for your child. While we can't
know all of the emotions and thoughts that you must be experiencing, we
appreciate you for taking the time to get to know us a little bit. If you do ultimately choose us as adoptive
parents for your child, please know that he or she will be loved
unconditionally and well cared for. 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 and currently
live in Arizona. When I (Brooklynn) graduated college in 2009, I traveled to Calcutta, India
and volunteered in an orphanage for special needs kids over the summer. That was a life changing trip and after that,
I knew I was called to adopt.
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 providing a loving home to a child was something we wanted to do as a couple. We are eagerly waiting to open our hearts and
our home to another child.
child would be joining our little family making us a family of five! He or she would have an older sister, Carys
who was born in January 2017. She is now
a sassy, energetic toddler. We are also
expecting another child, due in February 2019.
And hopefully we can grow our family by another child through adoption. It might seem crazy to want our children that
close together in age. I’m sure it will
have its struggles, but to us it would be worth it. This is because Aaron and I both still have very
close relationships with our brothers, which we attribute to a few things. Mainly, we were both close in age to our
brothers, allowing us to literally grow, learn, and explore together during our
childhood. Some of our fondest memories
are of our adventures with our siblings.
It also allowed for us to learn and develop strong moral foundations
that we’re all adults, other than each other, we would both tell you our
brothers are our best friends. We hope
that having our kids close together in age will allow them to grow, play,
learn, and bond in ways that they might not be able to if they are split by a
large age gap, and we’re truly looking forward to watching and fostering that
special bond. Your child will be one of
our greatest joys, we cannot wait to watch our new son or daughter grow and
develop his or her own personality. Over
the years, we look forward to providing he or she with opportunities to learn
and explore, comforting she or she when they’re sad, sharing in his or her
happiness, and ultimately watching he or she grow into a unique and beautiful
We live in a nice, quiet neighborhood on the outskirts of
town, a block away from a wonderful elementary school and a short drive from
our church. Our house 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 our three 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 and extended family, on both sides, is
eager to welcome another child into the family. We were both raised in loving
families and are very blessed to have a strong continuing relationship with
them. Our families can't wait to share
family traditions with a new grandchild, niece, or nephew, 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, we pray you have peace. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for
taking the time to consider our family.
Aaron, Brooklynn, and Carys
