Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us and to consider us as your choice to love and parent your baby. Hopefully after reading more about us, you will have the peace and comfort you need to make your decision. The gift you are considering giving us is something we would be eternally grateful to you for.
Being adopted myself (Jennifer) gives me a unique viewpoint on the needs of an adopted child and how important it is to make sure the child knows how much love and courage it took for you to make your decision. I think it is important that your baby know as much about you, your life and family as you want. As I have learned from my own adoption, it is a wonderful, selfless act that those of us who are fortunate enough to be adopted are blessed to be a part of. We are excited to share our lives, adventurous spirits, and passion for learning and experiencing all that life has to offer with your baby. We love to laugh and enjoy life and are looking forward to raising your baby with our loving family and friends who are excited to make your baby a part of our family.
Todd and I met over 10 years ago when we were set up on a blind date by his sister, who I worked with. His sister had a Mardi Gras ball to attend and invited us to go. So the first night we met I also met almost his entire family! Since we both love to dance and enjoy celebrating with family and friends, we had an unforgettable time together. I knew instantly that Todd was a good-natured, easy-going guy when on the way to the ball we got stuck for an hour waiting for a Mardi Gras parade to cross the road in front of us and instead of being frustrated, we both decided to get out of the car and run along the parade route in our ball attire catching beads and having fun. That was just a foreshadowing of our lives together. We have always faced obstacles with a fun-loving “can do” spirit and knowing that everything will ultimately turn out for the best. That is what we want to instill in your baby’s upbringing as well. We will teach him or her to live with a positive attitude and an upbeat, confident spirit and to trust that everything happens for a reason.
Thank you for being opened-minded about possibly choosing us as the parents of your baby. It is a gift we would not be able to thank you enough for and we would make it our life’s mission to be the best parents we could be and that your baby deserves to have.
Todd and Jennifer
