We have yet to meet you, yet you are our hero. We have so much respect for you as you make this decision for your baby. Thank you for taking the time to read this letter and look at our profile. We would be honored if you chose us to be parents to your child.
We have both always looked forward to having a family. A strong marriage and foundation is an important factor to both of us before bringing a child into the picture. We trusted God had a plan for us and we waited until life brought us together to make the decision to have a family. We did go through a pregnancy loss earlier this year and it was heartbreaking. We evaluated the risks and prayed about it and decided together to adopt rather than try again. We may not share genetics with this child, but we will share hearts and that is most important.
We have so much to offer to your child. We can provide stability, a strong foundation, and a safe environment. We both grew up in loving, supportive families that taught us strong Christian values, a good work ethic, and gave us wings to fly. We hope to pass this on. Your baby will be loved and well cared for by so many beyond us. In addition to amazing family support, we have a wonderful circle of friends that are so great to hang out with and they are there when we need them. And we have great neighbors that range from retirees to young families and everything in between. A very supportive environment to grow up in!
Life in our home is low-key and casual. We both work full-time jobs, yet Jen has the flexibility to work from home often. Our weekend activities vary from just hanging out at home, grilling and playing games with the family, going for a hike, camping, or maybe checking out a local festival or concert in the park. We also enjoy those days of having nothing planned and going with the flow…everyone needs that once in a while. We are excited to grow our family. We can’t wait to have a little one walking around, making messes around the house and exploring the outdoors with us.
We know other families who have adopted and have friends that were adopted themselves. There is so much value in seeing all the different perspectives of adoption. These conversations have only solidified our decision that adoption is the path for us as we build our family.
We are not perfect or trying to be perfect. We have our fears and insecurities. We have had successes and failures. Life has its highs and lows. That is why we are so thankful for the support that surrounds us. We want our future child to be happy and healthy. We will encourage him or her to find interests and activities that they enjoy doing and we will support, guide and comfort them along the way.
Being chosen as parents for your baby would be a true blessing. Our child will always know where they came from and how many people love him or her. We are forever thankful and will do everything we can to support you during this process. You have an unimaginably important decision to make. We pray that you will find peace in your decision, knowing you have given your child the opportunity to be a part of our family. Thank you so much for considering us.
Jen and Dax
