Dear Expectant Mother,
We want to thank you for considering us as parents
in raising your child. We already admire your courage and strength in
making the sacrificial decision of adoption for your child. We are elated at
becoming first time parents through adoption. As adoptive parents, we will
provide the same unconditional love and growth that you have envisioned for
In December 2010, our lives changed forever when we
accepted an invitation from mutual friends visiting for the holidays. While our
paths had crossed many times before at other social gatherings, it wasn’t until
that night when fate struck and we had our first conversation. This
conversation started our journey together as a couple and eventually marriage
in August 2013. Since our marriage began we have enjoyed many blessings and
have had the privilege of travel adventures including Italy, France, Azores
Islands, Banff, Grand Canyon and Costa Rica. When we aren’t traveling we enjoy
music, dancing, sports, spa days and cooking together. Our favorite shared
activity is family and friend gatherings as our families are the foundation of
who we are today.
We were both raised in loving, faith-filled homes that
provided the best in education, guidance and everyday fun that a child needs
for personal growth. Seth started working with his family’s vending company at
the age of 4. You can say his arithmetic lessons began when counting how many
Snickers were needed to fill up a row of candy slots. Nancy has fond memories
of traditional Italian family get-togethers that included pasta dinners, singing,
not-ready-for Broadway performances and playing cards with her grandparents.
Both of our parents were big supporters of our activities that included baseball,
hockey, ice skating and cheerleading. Secondary to faith, education was a
priority. We both had a great education from grammar school to college which
led to successful careers in sales and finance.
Our families include both sets of loving parents, 3 siblings,
8 nieces and nephews, and extended families that cannot wait to welcome your
child and provide the same love and respect that we all share for each other. Seth’s
family lives about 4 hours away and Nancy’s parents, siblings and nieces live
about 20 minutes away and will be able to provide additional support. Our extended family also includes loving friends
with children who have already offered play dates and future prom dates.
We have a great love for children and we are ready
to begin the next chapter in our marriage journey. Nancy has been around
children all her life. She enjoyed babysitting and being a camp counselor when
she was younger. Nancy is a loving aunt and actively participates in her niece’s
dance recitals, traditional Easter egg hunts, baking Christmas cookies,
sleepovers and one-on-one time. Seth is a kid at heart who is always looking
forward to dressing up for next Halloween. Children, including his two nephews,
gravitate to him. Seth’s nephews live out of state but frequent visits with
them include special time playing baseball and video games.
In preparation for our dream of starting a family, we
just purchased a new home where we have envisioned raising your child. It has
three bedrooms and bathrooms, a fenced-in backyard for playtime and
entertaining space for family and friend gatherings. The neighborhood has a large
community of families and a park for children who wish to participate in sports,
arts and crafts, music or other activities. We would love to take your child to
baseball games and nearby beaches to play. Seth loves to cook and looks forward
to providing lessons and having a new sous chef.
we found each other later in life, it is our belief that God’s plan is for us
to become adoptive parents. We have been blessed with each other, our family
and friends. We know our lives will change forever with the gift of a child. At
the center of our hearts is a promise to you to raise your baby with love,
faith, stability and access to life’s opportunities. We cannot wait to share our experiences and start
a new chapter with your child.
Thank you for reviewing our story. We are excited to
learn more about you and would be humbled should you choose us to be your
child’s adoptive parents. Our prayers and thoughts are with you during this miraculous
journey which we pray to share with you.
With love and admiration,
Seth and Nancy
