This must be
an extremely hard decision for you to make, but we want you to know that your
child will have an amazing life as a part of our family. Hopefully this letter
will give you a glimpse of a day in the life of Brian and Nicole. We currently
live in a condo in Massachusetts. We both grew up in the south shore area,
where our families still reside. We are a very close family, and have about 75+
relatives in the area (some on the same street). Things get a bit hectic, but
family parties are often and very fun. We all get along great and your child
will have many cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents to fill their life with
love and laughter.
We met after
college through mutual friends, and came to find out we grew up just 10 minutes
apart, in neighboring towns. We started dating just a year after college and
instantly fell in love. Brian proposed in December of 2014 by a beautiful Christmas tree. Other than being an extremely frigid night, it was one
of the best of our lives. We then got married in 2015 – which instantly became the ‘new’ best
day of our lives. We have always talked about having a family. Nicole suffers
from a disease called Cystic Fibrosis, so carrying a child would be a big health risk. Since we definitely want a child, adoption seemed like a great solution.
Nicole’s mother was adopted after birth, so we know firsthand what an amazing
experience this will be. You would be giving us what we cannot have on our own.
Our number one priority in life will be caring for your child, watching them
grow, teaching them our values, and being their best friend. And we cannot
explain how excited we are to start on this next chapter of our lives.
We lead very
active lives and have many hobbies. We both love to golf, boat, and travel.
Usually the weekend battle is whether we golf or go out on the boat. Brian’s
parents have a beautiful house on the water, with docks in the front
of the house. Most of the family keeps their boats here. A typical ‘boat day’
includes meeting friends and family out on the islands in the harbor and
playing games and cooking out for the day. These are some of our fondest
memories that we cannot wait to have your child be part of. When we aren’t out
on the boat, you will most likely find us at the country club. Nicole’s parents
are members here, and we plan to join as well. We will teach our child to golf
at a very young age, I am sure. After a lesson we will then head over to the
pool and relax there for some more fun in the sun. If you can’t tell, we love
being outside. We also love to travel. It is a little more difficult with our
work schedules, but one of our best trips was our honeymoon to Thailand. We
relaxed on the beautiful beaches, went on a safari, ate great food, and got to
visit all sorts of Thai attraction helping us get to know the culture.
This was a
little peek into our interests and what keeps us busy outside of work. The main
message is, we love spending time together, whether it’s out and about or on
the couch watching a movie. We make each other laugh every day and never go to
bed without saying goodnight and I love you. Having a child as part of our
life, would make this puzzle complete. We hope this letter helps you envision
your child’s future. And most of all, comfort that you are choosing the right
parents, who will always care for your child as if it were their own.
Brian & Nicole
