Dear Expectant Parent,

Thank you for considering giving the most precious gift to a family like ours. Though we each have been challenged in different ways, we truly believe that all together we can create something beautiful. Through this journey, we have learned that there are all kinds of ways to make a family. We would be honored if you and your child would consider being a part of our family.

We hope to give you a window into our family and let you know who we are. Erin and I have been together for 15 years. While falling in love we found in each other a best friend who shares the same values, including the need to be kind towards others, to see the humor in life and not forget to laugh. Together we enjoy traveling, exploring our local city, watching movies, and spending time with family. We have a sweet and silly four year old named Benjamin. He loves robots, super heroes, reading books, and chasing after our dog Henry. He makes us smile and laugh each day. We long to make him a big brother.  Your child would have a best friend in Ben from day one.  

Our home is in a fun, suburban neighborhood with beautiful parks and beaches, great schools, and several libraries, all within walking distance. We spend our days playing soccer in the backyard, building cool creations with Legos, singing along with music, and enjoying the many kid friendly events in our local area. Within our home, we promote the values of respect, gratitude, hard work, helping others, and of course love. We dedicate ourselves to raising our son to be a kind and conscientious person and would whole heartedly welcome the opportunity to nurture another child as part of our family. 

Dan has many interests including writing music, working on his vegetable garden, and reading. He has worked as a computer and network engineer for over 15 years. He is a friendly, patient man who is quick to help others. I know he cherishes his family, and I love him so much for being such a dedicated and loving dad. For the past 17 years, I have been devoted to nurturing children as an elementary school teacher. I currently teach 3rd graders and so enjoy their smiles and enthusiasm for learning. In addition to teaching, I enjoy planning fun outings with family and friends, cooking, working in the garden, and trying to find a little time to relax on the couch. 

From early on, Erin and I openly shared our desire to have children. Shortly into our marriage, these dreams were seriously challenged. Through difficult decisions, many fertility treatments, and perseverance, we were able to have our son in 2012. Our attempts to expand our family since then have not been successful. Our many years of dealing with infertility have truly opened our eyes to how important family is. To be able to complete our family through adoption would make us grateful beyond words.

While we realize the art of parenting is a continuous work in progress, we want to assure you how much heart and soul we put into our favorite roles as mom and dad. We would cherish the opportunity to create a full and happy life for your child. We will be there for all the big and small moments, and promise to give your baby all the love his or her beautiful heart can hold. 

We hope we have shared with you a glimpse into our lives. We admire the courage and strength you hold inside as you consider the adoption process. We would love the opportunity to meet you, to learn about what is important to you, and how we can support you. Thank you for placing your faith in us, and we hope our paths will cross soon.

Gratefully yours,
Erin and Dan
