We are Dustin and Victoria from California and we are grateful that you are considering us as the adoptive mother and father of your child. Through this letter we hope to give you an idea of the life we hope to share with your child.
You must be very courageous and generous for insuring the future of your child by considering adoption. We want you to know that if you choose us to be the adoptive parents of your baby, we will always put your child first and give unconditional love.
We will share a bit about ourselves, our traditions, our hobbies and more importantly, our values.
We met in 2010 and it was love at first sight. In 2012 we got married and it was one of the best days of our lives. We knew from the start that we wanted to have a big family. Dustin has a son from a previous relationship, so we are well on our way to our big, loving family. Things do not always work out the way you think they will and God had a much different plan for us. After many years of trying to conceive a child on our own, it began to weigh on our hearts that adoption was always meant for us.
We have many traditions in our family, one of which is starting to decorate for Christmas right after Halloween. It is Victoria’s favorite holiday; she thinks that it should have two months of celebration and not just one. We have Thanksgiving dinner at our house every year, with over 40 people joining us, from friends to family or anyone needing a warm meal. We’ve just recently started a new tradition when we bought our house that everyone who comes to Thanksgiving must decorate a tree ornament. It is cool to have so many ornaments hanging from your tree that are hand made by friends and family.
Dustin has many hobbies, from coaching our son’s flag football team to competing in CrossFit tournaments on the weekends. We are very active and love to be outdoors, from beach camping or just barbecuing at our pool, on a sizzling summer day.
The most important thing we want to share with you is how we plan to raise your child. Your child will always be given a hug and kiss before bed. We promise to always let them know how loved and special they are. We want to show them what challenging work is and help them grow into a strong, independent, and confident adult. We will teach them how to be kind to others, and that if they set their mind to something, they can accomplish anything. We promise to pick them up and wipe their knee when they fall off their bike. We promise to leave a glittery dollar under their pillow when they lose a tooth, and we promise to make sure they work hard so that they can get into a good college. We have so many hopes and dreams for your child and want to thank you sincerely for even taking the time to read our profile. We look forward to talking and meeting. God Bless.
Dustin and Victoria
