Dear Expectant Mother,
We want to first thank you for taking the time to learn a little
more about our family. We are excited to share our story with you. We can’t
imagine what thoughts and feelings you are experiencing as you hold this
letter, but we admire your strength and courage, and we have so much respect
for you. We pray every day that, as you read our story, you might envision our
family being the match you have been looking for. We want to thank you from the
bottom of our hearts for taking the time to consider our profile.
We are Adam and Amber. Our home is located in a small, rural
community in Nebraska. We were married in 2012 and just celebrated our seventh
wedding anniversary. We have a five-year-old daughter named Brooklyn who is
extremely excited to become a big sister-- she eagerly talks about it daily. Brooklyn
loves to tell everyone about all the things she wants to teach her brother or
sister: how to play fetch with our black lab Kira, how to swing on the swing
set, and how to build pillow forts in the living room.
As parents, we always dreamed of having more children. However,
after having Brooklyn, we learned that Amber would be unable to carry another
child without serious complications. It has been a true gift to watch Brooklyn
grow up, but our family does not feel complete. We are grateful to have the
opportunity to pursue adoption. So a little more about us. Adam is a farmer and
Amber is a third grade teacher and coaches volleyball and basketball. This will
be her eleventh year of teaching. Brooklyn attends the
elementary school in town that Amber teaches at. Being in the same school as
Brooklyn means Amber is able to attend class parties, go on field trips, and
watch other school activities. Along with farming,
Adam volunteers to drive the bus for school activities. This gives Adam the
opportunity to drive the bus for Brooklyn’s field trips and Amber’s sporting
Brooklyn is an energetic little girl who loves school, her friends,
and especially being outside. As a family, we enjoy reading bedtimes stories together.
Our favorite time together often involves train rides at the zoo, going to the
Children’s Museum, playing at the park, going to t-ball games, and having camp outs complete with s’mores. Brooklyn’s grandparents are also very involved
in our lives and would be ecstatic to have another grandchild to love and
cherish. Brooklyn loves spending time with them riding horses, going for ice
cream, fishing, swimming, and reading together. We can’t wait to share these
experiences with another child and watch him or her grow up with Brooklyn.
We can’t begin to imagine how hard this journey is for you. We respect
your bravery and the love you have for your baby. We would be honored to also
love your child unconditionally every day and surround him or her with love,
support, and guidance. We are honored that you would have considered us to
raise your baby.
Adam, Amber and Brooklyn
