First of all, thank you so much for taking the time to look at our profile and read our letter. We’re Brian and Laura -California natives who loved growing up in such a wonderful place and are grateful to still call it home. Both of our childhoods were full of love and laughter, and we were (and still are) both close to our parents and siblings. So close, in fact, that family dinners are our favorite nights of the week.
Many of the things we enjoyed when we were young have carried over into our adult lives, such as a love of sports (hockey and baseball in particular for Brian; swimming, dance, and gymnastics for Laura) and an appreciation for the fine arts (some of Laura’s favorite activities are singing and reading). We love going to hockey and baseball games, and have had the opportunity to attend some wonderful concerts and shows over the years, which is something we hope to continue doing whenever we’re able.
We’ve been fortunate to have the opportunity to travel to some wonderful places as well. We have family in Hawaii and Europe and went to Canada a few years ago. We look forward to having even more travel adventures with your child. Even though we grew up in different parts of the state, we were brought together by eHarmony and quickly discovered that we both value the same things: kindness, compassion, trustworthiness, respect for ourselves and others, and most of all, the importance of family and friends.
The incredible level of support from our loved ones has never been more apparent or more valuable than while dealing with infertility. Due to a genetic condition that Laura was born with, we are unable to conceive a child biologically and after going through extensive testing, we were told that IVF is too risky to pursue. We dream of starting a family, and could not be more excited about growing our family through the miracle of adoption. There’s nothing more precious than the innocence and love of a child, and we’d be thrilled to have the opportunity to open our hearts and our home to your little one. Our families and friends are just as excited as we are, and there is no doubt that your child will be showered with love from day one.
The responsibility of raising a child is one that we are prepared to take very seriously, and we are confident that we are able to provide the safe, supportive, and loving environment that everyone deserves. In the face of what is undoubtedly an incredibly difficult and brave choice, we hope that what you’ve learned about us can offer you some peace of mind along the way.
Brian and Laura
