We are Jeff and Nicole. We want to thank you for taking the time to read this letter and get to know us as potential adoptive parents for your child. Please know that as we sit here, eager to grow our family, we keep you in mind, knowing that you might be facing one of the hardest decisions for yourself and your child. We will never understand the feelings you are feeling or the challenges you are facing, but we promise to be present and listen and show our love throughout this journey. Should you decide to place your child with us, we would be forever grateful. To place your child with us shows a level of trust and faith that will sit with us forever. We promise to talk honestly and positively with your child about you, your family, and your child’s family history, and hope you will be a part of these conversations. However, we will respect whatever type of relationship you wish to have with us.
Let us share a little bit about us. We met ten years ago when Nicole’s friend set us up on a blind date. Now, we are six years into marriage. We enjoy traveling and seeing new places and playing different sports together. We knew very early on in our relationship that starting our own family was very important to both of us. We couldn’t wait to share our love with another life.
In early 2021, we were contacted by Caleb’s birth mother. We had no idea what to expect, but we made sure she was in charge of her journey. When Caleb was born, we felt so fortunate to be asked to be a part of his life from the very beginning. It is a story we tell him daily. We met him and our hearts grew bigger than we could have imagined. Raising Caleb has been our greatest joy. Watching him explore, learn and grow has taught us how to be better people. We feel grateful to have an open relationship with Caleb’s birth mother and hope we can have the same with you if those are your wishes.
Family is a priority to us. Your child will be welcomed into our family with open arms. They will have a grandmother that visits almost daily with fun activities planned and they will be spoiled and loved on by their other set of grandparents who visit monthly from out of state. They will also have aunts, uncles, great aunts and uncles, and lots of cousins to play and grow up with! Our friends are our family too. We see them often and love raising our children together.
While there will be many, many happy thoughts, we also know that there might be thoughts of sadness for you and your baby. We want to listen and work through those as one unit. We will always look at our family and think about the selfless choice you made to help us grow. We promise to raise a strong, kind, and caring individual who will learn to be whoever they want to be in this world! Thank you for taking time to look at our profile and consider us as potential adoptive parents.
All our love,
Jeff and Nicole
