Dear Expectant Parent(s),

We want to start off by thanking you for taking the time to read this letter and for your consideration. We can only imagine how difficult this decision must be. We applaud your strength. In considering this decision, we can already tell how much you love your child. As you navigate this decision, please take comfort in knowing that we have the utmost respect and compassion for you.

Since early in our relationship, we have been interested in pursuing adoption as a means to expand our family. We are at a point in our lives where we feel very much equipped to add a precious family member. We currently have three adopted cousins on Patrick’s side and have seen the profound impact that adoption makes. Though adoption is a bittersweet journey we believe it is grounded in love. Your child will have a strong support system and a close-knit extended family. Our families are so excited to welcome your child, should we be so blessed. Your child will have adoring grandparents, playful aunts and uncles, and plenty of other kids in our extended family to bond and grow up with, including our sweet baby nephew.

A bit about us – we have been together for 7 years. We met at a July 4th party in Brooklyn, NY, where we were both living at the time. For the past 4 years, we have been fortunate to call Southern California home.

Laura grew up in Southern California. Her parents are still in the same town in which she grew up and her siblings live in Northern California. Her siblings will often drive down for the weekend. Laura also has relatives on her father’s side in Japan. Patrick grew up in Illinois. His immediate family is still there, and most of his extended family is spread out between Illinois, California, and Florida.

We will strive to provide your child with a safe, loving home, endless cuddles, and opportunities to thrive. We look forward to showing your son or daughter everything that our town has to offer. From beautiful beaches to mountainous hikes, we are fortunate to have so much at our disposal.

We are so excited to raise your child and will embrace every stage of his or her life. From significant milestones like first steps and graduations to simple moments together as a family, we will cherish your child every day. We will be his or her biggest cheerleaders. As lovers of travel, we look forward to showing your child the world so he or she can learn about and appreciate other cultures. We will teach your child the importance of being a global citizen.

We will share your child’s story with him or her so your child knows just how courageous and selfless you are. Your child will know that you put their needs ahead of your own. Your child will know how much you love them. We would love to share photos and updates with you of your child if you wish.

We are humbled that you would consider us and would be eternally grateful for you and your decision. The best way we can express our appreciation is by providing the most fulfilling life possible to your son or daughter.

With love,
Patrick & Laura
