Dear Expectant Mother,
Life is an awfully big adventure. And even though we don’t
know you yet, we can’t help but imagine who you are and marvel at the strength
you’ve already had on your life’s journey. We can’t thank you enough for taking
a moment to find out more about us and considering our family for your baby.
Our names are Hadrien and Kelly. We both grew up in a small
town in North Carolina, became fast friends in middle school and then high
school sweethearts. There wasn’t a single moment that we didn’t imagine our
lives without children. And since life always throws curve balls, due to some
fertility issues we have only been able to have one son named Sulley, who is
now three years old.
We’ve lived all of our lives in North Carolina, and just recently
moved from a big city to a lush, green city. This has allowed us to really reconnect
with nature and take our son hiking on the local trails. We love to find fun
and educational places to visit such as aquariums, museums and local farms
(especially during the holidays). The neighborhood we live in is quiet and
safe, with kids of all ages. It has a central playground where all the kids
love to meet up and play just right outside of our front door.
Though we try to make every day fun and exciting, we also
enjoy our family vacations. One of our favorite vacation spots is Disney World
and we go nearly every year. But we also enjoy going to the beach and mountains
of our state, and most recently got to visit the Bahamas and Cayman Islands. Most
holidays we have large family gatherings with extended relatives and tons of
amazing southern food. Each year we bake special food for each holiday and
everyone gets involved. Then we love sharing those as gifts with neighbors,
coworkers, friends and family.
We’re dedicated to providing every opportunity possible for
our children. From birth to college and beyond, we do and will continue to
strive and give them everything they need and much more. Our minds and hearts
are open to anything that our children want to be and want to do as long as it
is safe and productive. In our home we practice mindfulness and peaceful
parenting with gentle guidance. We believe in healthy minds, bodies and souls.
We’re so excited to welcome another child into our family
and for our son to be the protective big brother. If we are lucky enough to
call your baby our own, he or she will be loved more than words could ever
express. Our whole family of aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents are
anxiously awaiting the newest member of our family. We hope to meet you soon,
and pray for your safety and comfort.
With all the love from our hearts,
Hadrien and Kelly
