Phew, are you getting tired of reading through all these
profiles yet? We can only guess how intimidating it is for you, as we are
feeling it too. To see all these other amazing people who are willing to take
in a child and raise them like their own, to give him or her the opportunities
to enrich their lives. We know that whomever you choose will love and cherish
this gift just as much as we would, but we want to be those people for you.
Can we start by saying how incredibly brave and strong we
think you are? We can’t begin to imagine what a difficult decision you are
making right now in deciding what is best for your baby. We hope that we can
offer you some comfort in knowing that we recognize your courage and would be
humbled to have the opportunity to raise, love, and care for your child for the
rest of our lives.
We are both so excited to become Mom and Dad through this
adoption. It is our hope that with this letter we can give you an idea of how your
baby’s life will be in this crazy day-to-day world we live in. We are both Paramedics
working full-time on an Ambulance. In our career we see exactly how precious
life is and how fast it can change. We choose to make the most out of every day,
as you never know what tomorrow brings.
Life for your baby in our home will be filled with excitement
and adventure. From a quiet evening at home watching Harry Potter, to going to
the theater, and the annual festival in town, to vacations around the world, we
want to fill your baby’s life with culture. We mention Harry Potter lightly in
the last sentence, but actually should admit that we are huge Potter nerds, and
might just get your baby into a little Hogwarts mischief here and there. It
doesn’t stop at Hogwarts. We are well versed in other worlds of fandom from
everything Disney to a galaxy far, far away.
We are very outdoorsy people with a trip to the zoo or state
parks always planned no matter the weather. A zoo membership is a must, as we
seem to frequent not just the local zoos but those in surrounding states as
well. In fact, our home is a bit of a zoo itself from time to time. We
currently have two dogs and a cat. (They are all adopted too!) They are playful
and lovable additions to our family and will help us to love and protect your
Grandparents stand ready and waiting to spoil and adore your
baby. From fishing trips and baseball games with Grandpa or shopping sprees
with Grandma, there will never be a dull moment. We have a network of friends
and family that support us in our decision to adopt and in whom we find comfort
knowing they will be with us and your baby on this journey as we grow into a
blossoming family with a life full of love.
We want more than anything for you to know how much we hope
you have been encouraged by this letter to find some peace of mind that we are
the right choice for your baby’s future, and that we can’t possibly ever thank
you enough for this gift of life.
Aaron & Kaylah
