Dear Expectant Mother,
The greatest gift you can give is life itself. Considering adoption for your baby is probably the hardest decision you will ever have to make. We have tried to have children on our own for many years with no success. However, we never lost faith that we would be blessed with a family, and we are more excited than ever to start this new journey in adoption.
The beginning of our relationship is rather unique because Holly’s mom set us up on our first date. We first met at a bowling banquet, and both really enjoyed each other’s company. Sparks flew and we immediately started dating. We quickly realized how much our relationship was turning into something very special. We have had a blessed relationship because we communicate well, make decisions together, and truly love spending time with each other every day. Adopting a child is the next step for us to start a family and start a new chapter in our loving relationship.
As a couple we enjoy participating in many activities such as going to fine restaurants for seafood, Italian, Mexican or a steakhouse, enjoying an evening at the movies (we like action and comedy), going to the beach, going to professional sporting events, Pirates, Steelers, and Penquins, or even staying home cuddling on the couch watching TV shows (such as NCIS, Chicago PD, Chicago Med, and Chicago Fire). Over the years we have cherished the opportunity to have our niece and nephew stay over at our house. It is a treat for us to spend quality time with the children and take them to different events in the area. When they are over, we go to baseball games, play board games, watch movies, take nature walks, visit the local beaches, or go to the zoo.
When Jason was born he was placed for adoption and was blessed to have wonderful adoptive parents. Since he was adopted himself, he has always had a desire to adopt a child and give them every great opportunity that he received growing up. After we fell in love, we discussed the possibilities of adopting a child. We are both extremely excited about the opportunity of adopting your child and starting a new journey together as a family.
We firmly believe that in order to be great parents, it is important for us to have strong family values. As a future mother and father, we believe that we need to teach our children core values such as honesty, hard work, a good education, and the importance of spending quality time together. We realize that children can easily be influenced and we understand that we need to be role models for our children. We do not take this opportunity lightly and are eager to raise our children to have good morals.
We look forward to getting to know you in the near future. We would be glad to send you photos and correspondence about your child as they are growing up over the years. We are very thankful that you are allowing us to make all of our dreams come true. We can only imagine how difficult this is for you and want you to know that we will support you all the way through this process.
Our goal is to adopt multiple children and create a large loving family. We really hope that you consider helping us to start this process by choosing us to adopt your child.
Jason and Holly
