Dear Birth Mother,
There aren’t enough words to begin to express our appreciation for you and your courageous decision to give life to your child. We would also like to thank you for taking the time to read our letter and learn more about us. Creating an adoption plan requires a great deal of courage, love, trust and hope. We are very excited at the prospect of providing your baby with a home filled with love, happiness, laughter and opportunity.
We have always hoped children would be a part of our family. After several miscarriages and failed fertility treatments we were told that pregnancy was highly unlikely; we knew that God had another plan for us. We cannot imagine our lives without a child and have chosen the path of adoption to complete our family.
We met in 1990 through mutual friends and after a long courtship we married in 2005. Over the years we have known each other we have grown to love each other more and more each day. We are deeply committed and can’t imagine living without each other. We believe that we will make great parents and look forward to sharing that same love with our child if blessed with the opportunity.
We are an active, outgoing and loving couple. We enjoy canoeing, camping, snowmobiling, bicycling and outdoor activities. We also enjoy music, the arts and entertainment. We are both educated with Rich having a bachelor’s degree in Business and Nancy with a degree in Business Management. Rich works as a Business Analyst for a logistics software company and Nancy worked as a Lending Manager, but now stays home anticipating spending lots of time and love on your baby.
We live in a four bedroom home in a beautiful suburban community that is close to several parks, playgrounds and recreational activities. There are many families with children in our neighborhood and lots of opportunities to develop friends. The schools in our community are exceptional and provide the best possible education which is very important to us.
We were both raised in loving families and family means everything to us. We are blessed to have wonderful family and friends who are always supportive. Our extended families include many children and we see them throughout the year for holidays and other family events. Our families are excited about us becoming parents and can’t wait to share in the joy of our child and welcome a new member to our family.
We look forward to meeting and learning about you. This is the greatest gift you could ever give and we would never take that for granted. Your baby will grow up surrounded by love, happiness and security that will allow all his/her dreams to come true – a future with every possible opportunity. We are very grateful to you for considering us as the parents of your child and if chosen, will always make sure your child knows what a selfless decision you have made.
Nancy & Rich
