Hello! We would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for choosing life and making the courageous decision to place your baby for adoption. We can only imagine the overwhelming feelings, thoughts, and emotions that you must be going through at this difficult time. Know that although we have never met, we have been praying for you. Thank you for taking the time to read our letter, and for considering us as potential parents of your precious baby.
Our names are Brandon and Kelly. Brandon is loving, kind, smart, and a leader in both his work as a computer engineer and in his role as a deacon at our church. He enjoys hobbies such as coin collecting, walking, playing cards, and reading. Kelly is loyal, compassionate, and dependable. She is a stay at home wife and enjoys working out, playing volleyball, scrapbooking, photography, cooking, babysitting her young niece, and being involved in the women’s and children’s ministry of our church.
We met as students in college. Our faith and Christian values brought us together. We developed a deep relationship as we got to know each other through many long late night conversations. As we grew in our love for each other, those conversations turned to our dreams for the future, and then to marriage and family. Our wedding took place on a beautiful rainy day in 2007. We faithfully cling to the vows we spoke to each other that day; that we would love each other forever, through the joys and difficult times of our marriage.
Some of the most difficult years together were those struggling with infertility. It was hard for us emotionally because of our intense desire to parent a child. Our love for each other overflows and we strongly desire to share that love with a child. We went through several courses of unsuccessful medical treatment and began speaking to our church friends who have adopted. They helped us to realize that our deepest desire is to be parents and nurture a child regardless of being biologically our own. Our hearts are now full of hope and excitement as we continue on our journey through adoption and pray that you would consider us to complete our family.
When looking for a home, we knew we would want one that was child-friendly. We chose a home with a half acre backyard so a child would have lots of room to play and explore. We spend some evenings enjoying meals outside and playing cards. Inside, we have a large family room, kitchen, and three large bedrooms. We are currently making one of the bedrooms into a nursery. We enjoy spending time in our home with our playful cat, Ginger. Our dream is to have the privilege of waking up to the sweet sounds of a baby in our home, and can’t wait for days spent playing, feeding, watching the baby sleep and hearing his or her laughter.
Because of our faith, we truly believe children are blessings and gifts from God. Should you choose us, know that we would be eternally grateful and only speak of you with kindness, appreciation, and gratitude. We would do our very best to provide the most loving, stable, God-centered home possible with more hugs and kisses than your baby could desire.
