Thank you so much for taking the time to read this letter. We would like to share with you a little about our lives so that you may know the wonderful, positive, and nurturing environment your little girl will grow up in. The choice you are making is the most selfless choice a mother can make, a decision made out of pure love for your child.
Our names are Erik and Debbie. We have been married since 2005, but have been together since high school. We are each other’s best friends. Our relationship is based on mutual love and respect. One of the elements in our long relationship has been humor. No matter what the situation is we try to find the positive and keep it light.
Erik and I have always wanted children. After years of infertility treatments we decided to turn to adoption to fulfill our dream. Our dreams came true when we adopted our son Nicholas. He is the sweetest and most wonderful little boy anyone could ever dream of. He is the center of our world. He loves to play with his cousins and friends and he can’t wait to be a “big brother” to his little sister. Before bedtime Nick and I go out on our front porch and wish on the first star we see for a little sister to come into our lives. She will be surrounded by so much love and support. It will be so wonderful for your little girl to grow up having a big brother to share experiences with and go through life together.
We both know how important it is for parents to be involved in their children’s lives, to love and care, and be there for them. Erik is in law enforcement and has a flexible schedule. I’m a kindergarten teacher with summers off, as well as breaks and snow days throughout the year. I am planning on taking time off from my job when the time comes to love and nurture our new little girl.
We strongly believe that family is the most important thing in life. Our time at home revolves around our family. Our family enjoys being active and outside activities. In the summer we enjoy inviting family and friends to meet us at the lake and water ski and tube behind our ski boat. During the winter time our family enjoys skating and ice fishing on our local lakes, skiing and snowboarding at a local mountain, and sledding and tubing down our hill in our yard. We can’t wait to teach our children how to take part in all these seasonal activities.
Spending time with our children is one of the most important things we can do as parents to ensure our children will always know how much we love them. We will help guide your little girl to become a good person, secure and confident in whatever she decides to do in her life and to know that she can count on us to be there for her always.
Thank you for letting us share a little bit about our family with you. We would be honored if you chose us to raise your little girl. We intend to be honest about the adoption and we and let your child know you made the unselfish decision because you loved her so much and wanted the best for her. We look forward to getting to know you and waiting for your call that will fulfill our dreams of having a daughter.
Appreciation and Love,
Erik & Debbie
