Dear Expectant Mom,
Heartfelt greetings from the prospective parents of your child. We very much appreciate your consideration in allowing us to raise your baby. We cannot begin to comprehend the difficulty of the decision you are considering. Your courage in trusting us to unconditionally care for and raise this precious little life is insurmountable. We have been preparing for this baby for many years and are committed to raising him or her. Jeremy and I are ready to welcome your baby into our loving and nurturing home.
Stephen is a Pediatric Dentist and Jeremy recently retired from his career. Both Stephen and Jeremy look forward to having one parent at home to give your child lots of care and attention. We have a lot of hobbies, including travel and appreciating the outdoors. Additionally, we like to read, paint, listen to music, and watch TV series and movies. A healthy lifestyle is important to us, so we stay active by visiting the gym, taking walks, practicing yoga, and eating healthy. Oh, but we also enjoy baking, especially cupcakes and cookies. We would be remiss not to mention that our dog Rasko loves children too. He always enjoys the priceless hours we spend with our nieces and nephews.
Our home is in southern Minnesota, in a town of approximately 50,000 people. It is a close-knit, safe, and family friendly community. The commute to Minneapolis, where we lived for a number of years, is short. This allows us to return to the city a few times a month to visit our family and friends, including soon to be doting grandparents! As mentioned, we love to travel and immerse ourselves in new places, languages, and cultures. We want your child to appreciate the rural and urban lifestyles that we have in Minnesota. It is imperative that we foster a worldly perspective for him or her so they will be able to appreciate and respect people from all walks of life.
Our families and friends are just as excited as we are for the arrival of our new baby. Jeremy has four siblings and a multitude of aunts and uncles. This makes holidays extra fun and busy. Stephen has a smaller family with one brother and one sister, so the gatherings feel more intimate. In celebration of these differences we definitely cherish time together with our relatives and being a part of our nieces' and nephews’ lives.
We have been blessed with an abundance of love in our relationship and we cannot wait to share that with your child. We are grateful for your time in reading our story. We will wrap our arms around your baby and promise to provide a loving and nurturing home.
Jeremy & Stephen
