Dear Expecting Parents,

We are Bruce and Heather and we want to thank you for taking your time to read this letter. We are humbled by the opportunity for you to get to know our family. We can’t imagine how hard the consideration must be to make an adoption plan for your baby. We admire your courageous decision and we are grateful for your consideration and the possibility for us to grow our family. We want to share with you our personal journey because we know how personal this must be for you. Our hope is for you to get to know us and to give you a sense of peace knowing that your child will be loved unconditionally throughout their entire life.

We met 20 years ago in our high school SAT prep class. Bruce was a new student and I, Heather, noticed how different he was from the other guys in our school. Needless to say he made an impression on me. I asked him out over winter break in a letter. Yes back then social media and texting was nonexistent. Hard to imagine, I know. Lucky for me he called and we went out on our first date. I just felt so comfortable with him, I could be myself and I felt no judgment. He accepted me for who I was and who I wanted to be. We dated for the next 6 years. We went to different colleges in different states. We made an effort to put our relationship first and we knew that we had the same goals in our life. Our foremost goal was to have a family. In 2004, we were married.

Bruce comes from a big family. His father was in the military and he always knew that he wanted to go into the Army. He has two brothers and two sisters! Being a military child is a very unique experience. They moved all of the time; he has lived in 10 different states and one foreign country. He relied on his siblings and parents for his support growing up. They are a very close family. I am an only child and my father was in the military, stationed in North Carolina my entire life. I missed not having siblings but I have amazing parents and I drew my support from them. When Bruce and I were married, I inherited his siblings and I am very blessed to now have two brothers and two sisters. We love having our extended family and their support.

Our first few years of marriage saw lots of life changes. We were living in a new state and Bruce had his first deployment in the Army. Luckily for me, his sister was stationed in the same place and I could draw on her and our family for support. We got pregnant in 2006 and had our wonderful daughter Kelly in 2007! She is such a blessing and provides us with a joy unlike any other. Kelly is an amazing 11-year-old and has always wanted siblings. She loves her aunts and uncles and her nieces. Kelly likes playing soccer and has a great sense of humor. She loves animals and traveling. We always imagined having a large family and we have been trying to grow our family for the last 10 years, eight of which have been through infertility treatments. The last few years have been very difficult coming to the realization that we can’t have any more children naturally. So we began looking at adoption.

We are excited to try and grow our family through adoption. We can’t wait to have another little one walking around, playing with our two dogs, traveling with us through life. We look forward to future family camping trips, fishing, hiking and traveling. We want our future child to be happy and healthy. We want him or her to be active and have interests in and out of school. We enjoy music and sports and we hope that your child finds an interest - music, sports, art, scouts – that he or she loves and enjoys doing. College is a goal but it isn’t necessary if she or he finds a job that they can make a career out of. We hope that you will be able to share in her or his successes and happy moments and be a comfort during the tough times that life brings.

You have an unimaginably important decision to make. We want to thank you again for taking the time to get to know us and for considering us in your decision.

With love,
Bruce & Heather
