Dear Expectant Mom,
From the depths of our hearts, we thank you for the precious gift of life you have chosen for your child. Your courageous and selfless decision is one we will honor with unconditional love, compassion and support. We can only imagine your pain of choosing the courageous path of adoption for your child. Please know you have our full support and respect. Through adoption we are joining together in the love, care and support of your child who will be welcomed into the open arms of a caring and loving family. Your child will be surrounded by a warm and loving home, our caring and supportive extended family, and an open community.
We are Ryan and Diana, aka Ry and Di. We met at work over 6 years ago and since our first date have been inseparable. We were married in 2011. After attempting to have children on our own and experiencing the heartbreak of infertility, we have chosen adoption to build our family. We thank God for guiding us and answering our prayers through this journey.
We are very blessed to have each other and loving family and friends. Our parents each have been together for 40+ years and are an excellent example of love, respect and commitment. Diana has a large family, making get-togethers pretty amazing with lots of food, fun and laughter. Ryan’s family isn’t quite as large in numbers, but those family gatherings are just as joyful. We love to share our home and many meals with our loved ones. Ryan does much of the cooking which is always eagerly anticipated by our friends and family. Diana does the baking making wonderful cakes, breads, cookies and amazing desserts for special occasions.
Ryan has spent many years working in corporate marketing, yet finds time to take on numerous remodeling, gardening and landscaping projects around our home and for close friends and family and volunteering in the community. More importantly he is a supportive husband and true friend. Ryan will be a wonderful father.
Diana is Vice President and Managing Director, who enjoys engaging with clients and mentoring her employees. Diana also volunteers for a number of local charities including the YMCA, the United Way, and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society through Team in Training. Diana is a loving wife, loyal friend, and will be a warm, caring and compassionate mother.
We both have many talents that we like to share – we were both athletes during our school years and continue to enjoy sports and staying active. Diana played collegiate volleyball and took that talent after college to coaching at a nearby University. Ryan was a standout track and field athlete and continues to enjoy competing to this day. We have great hiking trails in our neighborhood that we often explore together. We also like to read, ride our bikes, cross country ski, garden, visit our local farmer’s market, and travel.
It is with the love you have for your child that we can share our love with a child like yours. We deeply respect and admire you for choosing adoption and for helping us to build our family. We hope you find peace and comfort knowing that your child will be raised by a loving and caring couple and that your decision will bring joy and happiness to our lives. We also look forward to an open and honest relationship with you.
Diana and Ryan
