Dear Expectant Mother,
Since making the decision to adopt we have thought about
you, who you would be, and how we can be supportive in the journey ahead. Our
commitment to give your child a loving, nurturing home is the greatest one yet
for us, but we want you to know that we understand it would not be possible
without you. Our commitment extends to making sure you are safe, loved and
comfortable throughout the process and that you continue to live your life with
the peace of mind and confidence that your child is in good hands.
It is difficult to adequately express gratitude to the
priceless gift you are considering to give our family and to your child. We can
make you a promise that they will experience a life of joy and stability,
filled with adventures and opportunities. We will be thankful for the rest of
our lives and will think about that promise to you with every step of raising
her or him.
Evan and I met 15 years ago and since then we have never
been apart. Our relationship can be described as a thoughtful one, as we are considerate
of each other’s needs, never standing in another’s way of being an individual –
all while building an exciting and stable life together. Even when faced with
roadblocks, we never broke up or separated, attacking the problems by focusing
The state we live in has been repeatedly rated one of the
healthiest to raise a family in. Our town is located along a beautiful lake and
is less than an hour away from numerous mountain resorts. We live in a quiet
neighborhood that is populated with longtime residents and young families. We
are a bike ride distance to a downtown area which is always full of culture and
We own a boat and spend our summers swimming and exploring
the lake region. Evan is an avid snowboarder and spends time in the mountains
during the winter. During the spring and fall we both enjoy long drives
visiting animal farms and hiking. We both love traveling and during the summer
we spend time at our vacation home on the Adriatic coast in Europe with family
Evan works in the action sports industry that keeps him
young at heart and I specialize in the culinary arts, specifically children’s
food catering for event and parties. We have a group of friends with children
ranging from two to six that are all very excited to welcome a new addition to
the group. Our closest friends have adopted children and we feel very fortunate
to have common experiences.
Our families are the most important to us. Evan’s family
lives a few hours away and we visit each other every couple of months. My
family is located in Europe but we spend quality time with them twice a year
and video chat daily. Our favorite family holiday is Thanksgiving but we
celebrate both Christmas and Hanukkah.
Evan and I feel very fortunate to live the life that we do,
but we are ready to share our experiences with a child. Besides making sure
they have a healthy and stable upbringing, we will establish strong
values and education by surrounding the child with family and friends, allowing
them to experience a life as we do, full of adventures, activities and
We look forward to exposing your child to places and
cultures through our love for travel, art and exploration. With our vacation
home oversees, not only will your child have a great understanding of our
nation, but will travel abroad and see new and interesting things!
Evan is especially excited to build a lifetime of memories
with various outdoor sports and activities and I very much look forward to
spending time in the kitchen with him or her, cooking meals for us and having
fun. And we are both excited to spend time on the lake during the summers,
swimming and playing on our boat, reading books and hiking in fall and spring
throughout our beautiful state.
But we are most excited to educate your child about our
upbringings, to serve as an example of how two different worlds can come
together and create something beautiful. Adding a child by adoption will only
enhance our story of how sometimes love comes from unexpected places and
creates beautiful unity.
As an Expectant Mom, you have a lot to decide on, but we
hope that reading our profile will make it easier for you to choose. We thank
you in advance for considering our family to raise your child and bring them up
in the loving and culturally-enriched family environment that we have created.
Evan & Maja
