Dear Expectant Mother,
You face a difficult
decision and we admire you for the courage it takes to even consider making an
adoption plan for your child. Should you decide to choose us to love and
raise your child, our promise to you is to provide your child with a family
life that is filled with love, laughter and lots of adventures. We hope
to meet you soon and we would love to be a part of your adoption journey.
When I first met
Melissa, I couldn’t have told you that we would be happily married one day and
now looking back on the beginnings of our relationship and seeing it progress,
really makes my heart happy and puts a smile on my face. There are so
many good things about her, like she’s definitely the brain of the family and I
love how she likes to plan things for us.
I also love that she’s a traveler and likes going places. She’s an animal lover (just like myself) and
loves both of our pets dearly. We have so many pictures of our pets,
which means you can only imagine that we will have pictures of your child
galore to send you. She’s also very
family oriented, which I love because I’m the same way. We’re so both well balanced and work together
as a team and I know deep down in my heart, that we will be amazing parents and
provide your child with a happy life. Did I also mention that my wife is
beautiful, smart, loving, thoughtful, caring and will no doubt be an amazing
mom to your child.
Johnnie is a unique
individual, in a good way! The love that Johnnie shares with everyone is simply
amazing. This is what I love the most about him. From friends to family, there
is not a single person that he has not met that they are not instant friends.
He is one of those people that you don’t have to ask to help. He will volunteer
his time to anyone. He makes sure I am always taken care of as well as our
animals. His face lights up when he is in the room with any kids, no matter
what age. He has a way of adapting to them and they love him just as much as
our friends and family do. Johnnie enjoys mountain biking and is already
dreaming of the day he can teach your child to ride a bike and when your child
gets older going on the trails together, father and child. He is going to be a
wonderful dad to your child.
We live in a quiet but
friendly neighborhood with a park just down the street from our house that we
enjoy taking our dog to for walks several times a week. In this park, there is
a small pond and Johnnie is looking forward to taking your child down to feed
the ducks that live there. Melissa enjoys cooking, especially home cooked
meals and can’t wait to pull up a chair so that your little one can join her in
preparing the family meals. We are big
on eating dinner together each night and putting our cell phones away so we can
hear all about each other’s day. We
imagine a child at the table with us, sharing how their day was and making
plans for the weekend of all the things we want to do as a family. We
LOVE to travel and are looking forward to showing your child the world. We like to travel to new places and not
travel to the same place twice, unless of course it is to visit family. Since we are both big animal lovers, the zoo
is one of our favorite places to visit.
We can’t wait to get an annual family pass to the zoo so that we can
visit the zoo frequently with your child.
Your child will be surrounded by grandparents, aunts, uncles and
cousins who can’t wait to meet them. One of our favorite family
traditions is hosting Thanksgiving where we deep fry the turkey and all the
aunts, uncles and cousins come to town and join us for a day of feasting and
reconnecting to family we may not have seen during the year.
The opportunity to
adopt your child would be the greatest gift and we promise to provide your
child with a family life that is filled with love, laughter and lots of
adventures. Thank you for reading our letter and considering our
With all our
Johnnie and Melissa
