Dear Expectant Mother,
Thank you for taking the time to read this letter and look
over our profile. We understand it must be very difficult to make such an
important decision in your life, and we wish you the very best in this part of
your journey. Follow your heart, and may you find comfort in knowing that we
are thinking of you.
We would like to share a little about ourselves. We both
grew up on the east coast and met in Tacoma in 2001. Jodi grew up in New
Hampshire and moved to Washington in 1999 for a job offer, and David grew up in
Vermont and moved out here for a job in 2000. We dated for 5 years, and then got
married in 2006. We do not have any children and have 2 sweet, loving, friendly
kitty cats. We own our home, and we really enjoy the Pacific Northwest
lifestyle. We have family in Washington State, Colorado, Vermont, New Hampshire
and Massachusetts. We travel regularly to see family and also travel a lot to
enjoy fun adventures!
David is a Civil Engineer who works on designing street
improvements, school projects, private building projects and so forth. He likes
the outdoors, and loves to try new things. He has a kind heart, a big soul, an even
temperament and is loving, thoughtful, and sensitive. He also enjoys indoor
stuff like cooking, relaxing, reading and woodworking. David is looking forward
to having a little one join us on our weekend hikes and evening walks to the
park down the street. David loves babies and will be great during the baby
Jodi is a Nurse Case Manager who works at the hospital
helping patients and their families prepare for discharge to their homes or to
the community. She really loves the outdoors, and spends much of her time
staying active and exploring the Pacific Northwest. She has a lot of energy,
and loves doing new things and experiencing a variety of recreational opportunities.
She is thoughtful, giving, hardworking, and deeply caring. She loves kids and volunteers
with foster children every month, and also loves to spend time with her family
and friends who have kiddos. She can’t wait to share our life with a little one,
and can picture playing in the sand by the waterfront on a sunny day and quiet
time at home on those rainy days. Jodi is excited to find out what your child
will like to do, and support and encourage them in their own personal interests
as they grow up.
We both are open-minded people, and we have a strong set of
values. We live a healthy lifestyle with a good balance between work/career,
education, recreation, family and friends and we look forward to sharing this
lifestyle with your little one. We look forward to raising a child to be honest,
kind, strong, respectful, independent, and will contribute positively to
society. This is our wish for your child, and we are open to loving and parenting
a child of any race or ethnicity and either gender.
Hopefully you have a better sense of who we are. If there
are other questions you may have about us, hopefully we can answer them for
you. We wish you all the best and thank you for taking the time to read our
letter and consider us as adoptive parents. Best wishes and peace be with you.
David and Jodi
