you so much for considering adoption.
The act of letting someone else raise the child you are bringing into
the world is incredibly selfless. While
we cannot know all the circumstances in your life that brought you to this
decision, we know that this will be the best decision you could make for your
are so ready to grow our family and are excited for all of the new adventures
ahead. I hope you know your decision to
let us raise your child makes us so happy and hopefully can bring you peace
knowing he is loved beyond words.
We promise you that
we will be loving, good, and involved parents.
In our family, your child will be loved because he will be a member of
our family in every way. Our relatives
will be his relatives. Our house will be
his house. We will eat family meals
together, travel together, ski together, fly fish together, and be in each
other’s lives always. Our extended
families are unique in the fact that on both sides we have cousins that were
adopted. You do not need to worry that
your child won’t be accepted by our extended family. Our adopted cousins (3 total) are our family
in every way.
We will raise the
child in Montana, where we are both from.
Much of our extended family is close by.
We both work in a family business and live near Catherine’s parents, who
are excited to help look after the new baby.
We have the ability to be flexible in our work schedules so that between
our time watching the child, the help of the child’s grandparents, and some
in-house help, we won’t have to send the child to daycare. We were both raised by stay at home mothers
and know the importance that has on a child.
We are both college
graduates who value education and look forward to helping educate our new child
to being a smart, hard-working, kind, and compassionate person.
We are so lucky to
live in a place like Montana and have so many outdoor opportunities like skiing,
hiking, rafting, fishing, and we look forward to sharing that with your
child. We live in a safe neighborhood on
a quiet street with a big yard to play in that is close to good schools and
While the life
opportunities mentioned above will be a wonderful environment to raise a child,
the most important thing we can tell you is that your child will be loved and
grow up supported and taken care of by people who love him.
Thank you for
considering us in this important decision.
