Dear Expectant Mother,
We want to start by
honoring your courage, strength, and love. And we want you to know how
genuinely grateful we are to be considered for this amazing gift.
We cannot begin to
understand the challenge that you are facing at this time. Thank you from the
bottom of our hearts for thinking of us as the family you might allow to care
for and cherish your child. We believe we were always meant to be adoptive
parents, having struggled with infertility for many years. We know that sometimes
life’s greatest joys come when we adapt to difficult circumstances and allow
ourselves to walk the path in front of us. We’re so incredibly thankful and
excited for the opportunity to expand our family.
We’ve been married for
13 years, and over that time we’ve been so lucky to often work together,
supporting each other’s goals. We’re fortunate to be able to work from home
most of the time. Shannon is now a film industry consultant, and Zach is a real
estate agent and attorney. We also believe it’s important to be active in our
community and spend time volunteering and supporting a variety of nonprofit
For the past eight
years, we’ve lived in a beautiful, safe, family-friendly community that’s just
ten minutes from the beach. Our bright, cheerful, airy condo sits on a lake
that is frequently visited by all kinds of wildlife like deer, turtles, and
ducks! We’re just steps away from two community pools, outdoor barbecues, a
playground, basketball and tennis courts, and a community recreation room and
We have a passion for
the arts, having both grown up doing school plays and community theater, which
later lead us to screenwriting together. We’re definitely huge movie buffs. We
enjoy seeing bands in concert, and we really love traveling to new and
interesting places. We’re always making each other laugh, which is one of the
key things that drew us together and keeps our marriage strong.
Both of our parents
encouraged and supported our education as well as extracurricular activities so
that we could grow into well-rounded adults. Shannon loves to read, and Zach is
an avid musician, and we want you to know that your child will be supported in
every way to thrive and pursue their passions and to become the extraordinary
person they’re meant to be.
We’re blessed to have
Shannon’s immediate family and many close friends living right here in town.
And believe us, they’re all brimming with anticipation for the day we become
parents! Your child will grow up in a loving environment where their curiosity
is encouraged, and their inspiration is allowed to truly flourish.
Again, we can only begin
to contemplate what you are going through at this time. Please know that your
child will be so very warmly welcomed into our home and showered with all the
love, compassion, and joy that they deserve. We want you to know if you choose
us, we are fully committed to talking honestly with your child about the true
love and bravery you’ve shown. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us
a little, and we look forward to meeting you soon!
With love and gratitude,
Shannon & Zach
