Dear Expectant Mom,

We are Julie and Tony.  Thank you for taking the time to read our letter, and learn a little bit about our family.  Though we do not yet know you, we think about you every day.  While we do not know what you are going through, we know that the decision you are making is not an easy one and we admire your courage in making it.  It is hard to put into words how very, very much you mean to us, but most importantly we want you to know that should you choose our family we will love, protect and nurture your little one with all of ourselves for the rest of our lives.

We met in graduate school while both were studying for Master of Accounting degrees.  We are both CPAs and are leaders in corporate tax departments for large public companies.  However, we both have great flexibility in our careers to be very available for our family, and continue to make family our very top priority.  In our free time, we both enjoy reading, jogging and spending time with our friends, extended family and young son.  Tony loves playing golf and is a big fan of all sports.  Julie enjoys cooking and decorating the house.  As a family, the things we enjoy the most are travelling and exposing our son to new experiences.  This year we went to Disney World in the spring, to the beach twice in the summer, to Seattle in the fall and on a mountain ski weekend in the winter.    We met Mickey, learned to boogie board in the ocean,  went up in the Space Needle and were shocked to learn that having grown up playing hockey Dad did actually know how to ice skate!  We have also taken a bunch of weekend and day trips to visit nearby friends and family and to attend various sporting events (Go Heels!).   This year, our son has taken swimming and karate lessons and played soccer.  We look forward to the day that we have another little one to share these experiences and other fun new adventures with.

We live in a friendly suburban neighborhood that has lots of families with children of all ages.  We were attracted to the neighborhood because of the family friendly feel, newer homes, sidewalks and walking trails, swimming pool, and the beautiful mature trees throughout the neighborhood.  Our neighborhood is also on a private lake only open to neighborhoods that border the lake.  We also love our neighborhood because of our great neighbors who have become our great friends, and the variety of family friendly neighborhood events throughout the year.  Our house is a large, comfortable and bright 5 bedroom home; it has a nursery attached to the master bedroom, a playroom downstairs, a play set in the backyard, and a very happy little boy who can’t wait to be an older brother. 

We tried for years to have a baby the first time around.  With the help of IVF we were lucky enough to get pregnant with our son.  He was then born very early and was in the hospital for over 3 months, primarily in intensive care.  As a result of this journey, we recognize that we are immeasurably blessed to have him with us - healthy and happy, and are amazed daily at the joy we get from being parents.  We yearn every day to be blessed again with another child, for ourselves and our son.   To have that kind of love again would bring such a richness to our lives we could never possibly repay. 

We know the decision you are facing is a hard one and we wish you strength and peace along the way.  Thanks you so very much for taking the time to read our letter and learn a little about what life is like in our family.  We sincerely hope that you will consider our family.

With hope and love,
Julie & Tony
