Dear Expecting Mom,
We realize that our happiest day will be one of your saddest. Adoption will be one of the toughest and most difficult decisions you will ever make, and it's’ a decision that is made out of love. We admire your strength and selflessness, and have only feelings of love for you.
We are Jake and Julia. We were both born and raised in the Boston area. Our love story begins online, as we were matched by Hinge, an online dating site. Our first date we met at a local dairy farm and to our surprise both share a love for coffee ice cream. We hit it off immediately, bonding over our passion for adventure, the outdoors, country music, and the simple things in life. We knew instantly that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. Jake proposed during the Christmas season, and that next Thanksgiving weekend, with our family and friends, we said "I do."
We are more than ready to take this next chapter of our lives. We tried right away to start a family, and struggled early on with infertility. We quickly learned that we could not biologically have a child, and we discovered that God has a different plan for us. We embrace adoption wholeheartedly, as it will give us the opportunity to build the family we’ve always dreamed of. We are so excited to add to the love and joy we have in our life.
Our home is a fun place where our family and friends feel welcomed. We intentionally bought this home with the hope of raising a family. We have a nursery, a study (soon to be a dedicated playroom), and a large backyard with plenty of room to run and play. We found the perfect spot to build a tree house someday. We live on the same block as a park that has baseball, tennis, basketball courts, and even an indoor swimming pool. We feel so fortunate to have found our forever home, located in a safe and quaint neighborhood; truly a wonderful place to raise a family.
We were both raised in loving homes, and we continue to have close relationships with our very large extended family - whom we love tremendously. We are fortunate that our families live close by and we get together on a regular basis. Our families are beyond excited for us to adopt.
We look forward to this next chapter in our lives as parents. Caring for your little one is going to be our number one priority. We are all in and will cherish every moment as parents. We are excited to recreate similar experiences that we had growing up, teaching him or her how to ice skate, read a book, and ride a bike. We cannot wait to experience life through your child’s eyes.
We’ve put a lot of thought into what lessons were taught to us, and of those lessons, which ones we would like to teach a child. We wish to instill the great love of family, the courage to travel, and the heart to love the people they meet along the way. Our wish is that they learn to appreciate the little things in life, learn to live in the moment, and have fun because life is too short. We will encourage them to follow their dreams. We will always be there to support him or her, and promise to provide them a life without limits.
We think our greatest responsibility as parents is to ensure your child knows they are loved and cared for not only by us, but by you. We feel it’s important for them to know their adoption story. We know you will always be an important part of your child’s life. We fully intend to raise them with an appreciation and understanding for you and for the sacrifice you made for him or her. We look forward to building our relationship with you.
Thank you for taking the time to read our profile and letting us share our story. Our hope is for you to get a glimpse of what our family is like, what we stand for, and most importantly comfort in knowing the type of life your child would have with us. You would be giving us the greatest gift imaginable.
Thank you again for considering us and we look forward to meeting you!
With admiration & respect,
Julia & Jake
