are so appreciative that you are taking the time to read this letter. We are
grateful that you are considering to take the path of adoption, and can't imagine the
strength and courage it must take for you to make this most important decision.
We want you to know that if you choose us as parents you are choosing two
people who love each other very much, and who are excited to raise a child with
love and respect, nurturing and encouragement. We will raise your child to be
self-confident, to pursue their dreams and to be generous and kind.
have been together for 8 years and married for five. We began trying to start a
family right after we got married, but have been unable to have a child
biologically. Adoption was the next logical step as we both have family members
who were adopted, and Jeremy's mom also placed a child for adoption many
years ago. We feel very blessed that you
are willing to consider us to be your child's parents, because we are so
looking forward to raising a child together.
We live a very active lifestyle and spend a lot of time with friends and family.
Jessica's mother even lives on the property, in the house in back. We live in a
quiet neighborhood that is very diverse. We are close to many hike
and bike trails as well as a lake, where we like to kayak and spend summer days
at the parks along the shore. There are
many farmer's markets and local swimming holes also in close vicinity. We
prefer biking or walking to driving our cars, because it just seems like a

traveled extensively in the U.S. and abroad. We have also done a lot of
traveling together, including many trips to National Parks and other landmarks.
Our love of travel will provide an environment rich with cultural perspective
that has been informed by interaction with all types of people, places, and
their history. Now we are looking forward to many new adventures with your baby in
the future. We especially look forward to taking him or her with us on our annual
anniversary trip to a very small town in west Texas that both of us loved
before we even met each other. This love is what made it the obvious choice for
our wedding. Every year we go back to the same place we got married, which is a
desert campground that includes vintage trailers and teepees, and often friends
and family will join us for this celebration.
addition to being active with our friends and traveling frequently, we also
truly value our families and the time we get to spend with them. We are both lucky to have our extended
families living close by. This makes it easy for us to get together with them a
lot. We especially enjoy getting together for multiple gatherings around the
holidays, because there's always lots of great food and fun holiday traditions.
Both of our families are excited about welcoming your child into their hearts
and we look forward to sharing all of these family traditions with your child
in the years to come.
all we want you to be sure that your child will be raised with unconditional
love. We are so thankful that you are considering adoption and we appreciate you
wanting to learn more about us.
