Dear Expectant Mother,
We are Abby and Steve and we want to thank you for taking
the time to learn more about us and our family. We can’t imagine the difficult
decision you are facing, but we admire the strength and love that you have for
your child. If you are to choose our family for your child, please know that
your child will grow up in a house full of love and laughter and they will
always know how much you love them.
Our family is a loving, fun and active family! We love
showing our two children (and hopefully soon 3 children) different places and
different experiences. We like to travel and learn about different countries
and cultures, we love to explore the beauty of nature and we also enjoy doing
simple things at home just being together. One of our favorite things to do at
home is to bake, especially for the holidays. During Christmas every year, we
bake so many cookies then we deliver them to neighbors and friends. The
holidays are also very important for both sides of our family. Both sides have
strong family traditions that have been passed down over the years and it is
certainly a fun time to be a kid spending extra time with all of their cousins.
We met in college and dated for several years before getting
married in 2008. We always knew we wanted a family with kids. Our two children
are truly our whole world and from the moment we told them we wanted our family
to grow through adoption they have prayed for you and your child every night.
Your child will grow up with the most amazing big sister and big brother to
look out for them. We can’t wait to learn what your child’s interests are and
to support them into becoming the amazing person you dream they will become.
We both grew up with large families full of support and
love. Abby has two cousins that are adopted and adoption has been in our hearts
for a long time. If you are to choose our family for your baby, your child will
grow up surrounded in love, but they will also know the love you have for them.
He or she will grow up with many opportunities, from going to private school to
being able to participate in different activities that help their interests
grow. They will be able to go on to college and then choose a career they are
We are very grateful that you took the time to learn more
about us, we are so excited to grow our family and to love your baby forever.
Abby and Steve
