Dear Expectant Mother,
It takes a strong, selfless, and loving woman to make the decision to choose adoption and we want to say thank you for considering us. We want you to know that we will love, cherish, and welcome your baby into our family with open arms and mounds of respect for you in making this difficult decision.
We are Ryan and Sandra. We have actually known each other since elementary school. Ryan’s sister (Margo) was in Sandra’s class. We used to go on family vacations together. As life happens, we went our separate ways, only to reconnect in 2008 and have been inseparable since. We were married in 2010 and have 2 beautiful girls. They are 8 and 6 and they are so excited to have a baby sibling to read stories to and love. During our struggles to have another child we discussed adoption and how beautiful it would be to have a baby join our family in a unique way. After our 3rd miscarriage, we took that as sign that we were meant to adopt and started this journey. We have so much love to give and are very humbled that you would consider us.
We have a very big and loving family whom are so excited to welcome a new addition to our family. We are together often to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, or just because! Family is very important to us. Sandra works for her family business, which operates an ambulance company and sees how precious the gift of life is on a daily basis. Ryan’s parents live on a farm, have animals and grow organic vegetables. You can find the kids feeding goats or the miniature horse, gathering eggs from the hen house, or picking whatever vegetable is ripe for the picking. We are so fortunate that we have our parents, siblings, aunts, uncles and cousins that live so close to us and at any given time will be there for us and vice versa. We have gone on family vacations to different places like Disney, Japan, Italy, Hawaii, and learned so much on each trip. Sandra has family in Italy, and we are so blessed to visit them. Our youngest daughter was blessed by Pope Frances on one such trip to Rome.
Our Children will learn about different cultures and learn to speak Italian so that they can communicate with our Italian family. It is important for us to teach them to value and respect other cultures and traditions. The most important things we will teach our children is to love and be kind. Should you select us, your child will know the selfless act of love and bravery you showed in choosing life. Thank you for considering our family.
Ryan and Sandra
