Race of child interested in adopting:
Dear Expectant Mother,
Before we tell you how much your baby will be loved by us, we want to take the time to thank you for the selfless and generous act of considering adoption. We can only begin to fathom the intensity of the decision you are considering and know it won’t be made lightly. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us and considering us to be potential parents to your baby.
We have both wanted children for as long as we can remember. The thought of you providing us with the ability to be dads brings tears to our eyes. We can’t wait to shower your baby with love and affection. We are excited to give the best life possible to your baby. We are already planning trips to Disney World and building sand castles on the beach on warm summer days. We are excited for bedtime stories and making blanket forts on rainy days. We can’t wait to bake cookies together, go to museums, travel, and give your baby memories to cherish throughout their life with us.
Thank you again for taking the time to get to know us, and we hope to meet you soon!
Thank you for getting to know us! We first met when mutual friends invited us to go hiking, and since then, every day has been an adventure. The day after we met, we both told our coworkers we had met the man we were going to marry. Josh is fun and full of energy, and his outgoing personality comes in handy in his job as a Technical Account Manager for a computer software company. Anthony is gentle and patient and works as a corporate trainer. This perfect balance is what makes our relationship so successful. We both have a love for being outdoors and enjoy learning new things together. When we encounter stressful situations, we encourage each other to stay positive. We remind each other we can get through all things together with love, communication, and trust.
What Led Us To Adoption
As early as our second date, we talked about our love of family and having children. Our friends have frequently told us what a big part we both have played in helping raise their eight-year-old daughter and one-year-old son. We also got to witness the joy of adoption firsthand when Anthony’s boss recently adopted their third child, a little girl. We love taking care of our nieces, nephews, and friends’ children. We have so much to share and know it is the perfect time to start our family. We are so excited to share the next part of our adventure with a child and grow our family.
Our home is two hours from both the mountains and the beach, in a small town where our neighbors gather and talk at the end of each day. We are just outside a big city that has fantastic museums and an amazing park with a carousel and train that takes you around a huge pond. We have lots of neighborhood playgrounds and nature trails we are excited to explore and
enjoy as a family. We have a garden in our backyard where we grow vegetables and herbs. We can’t wait to share this experience and watch him or her plant seeds and see them grow. We also love playing board games, playing with our cats (Gideon and Piper), and spending time with our friends and their children.
We are both so fortunate to have big extended families, and our favorite family traditions are the times during the year when we get everyone together in one place. Anthony has seven siblings, and every year the whole family gets together and rents a lake house for a week, where we play games, sit on the beach, and go fishing.
Josh has three siblings and lots of nieces and nephews. He is blessed to have a great-grandmother who just turned 91. He is the oldest of the great-grandchildren, and with an addition to our family, we would have five generations together. Josh’s family also has an annual Fourth of July party that all of the family attends, and all the cousins, nieces, and nephews can play together for the weekend. We cherish these traditions and being able to come together and catch up.
Our families are extremely excited about us adopting. Our parents are already picking out names they want to be called as well as giving us ALL of the advice. With such a big family, there will be no shortage of love and support for our future child.
