Dear Expectant Mom,
We believe it is important for every adopted child to know that choosing adoption is a supreme act of love. In today’s world where there are many options, having your mom bring you to life and then making sure it’ll be the best life it can be even if she can’t always be with you is truly loving. We would be willing to share pictures with you so you can know that your child is in the arms of people who love them. And if you have a picture of yourself or the birth father that you’d like to share, we would one day give that to your child to give them the knowledge of their roots.
As you plan for your child’s future, let us tell you a bit about us and our lives so you may consider us as the parents for your child. You probably already figured out that as a same-sex couple, adoption is our primary option for having a child. But adoption goes deeper for us. Jeff was adopted by his parents and Jeff’s mother and uncle were adopted by his grandparents. Two of Jeff’s aunts and uncles adopted children as well, and they will grow up with people who can share in their experience with adoption.
We live a laid-back and comfortable lifestyle where we enjoy a slower pace during the week followed by activities with friends over on the weekends. We like to invite our friends over to talk, eat, and play board games. Jared enjoys cooking while Jeff is the baker of the family and is known for his made from scratch birthday cakes and breads. There’s always lots of laughter and music that go along with whatever we are doing. Our home has a media room, a great backyard, and a big kitchen and living area, which makes it perfect for our gatherings. We live on a cul-de-sac in a diverse family neighborhood. Our neighbors are a beautiful blend of Hispanic, Indian, European, African American, and white. Our families come from Irish and Polish heritage, but our family friends come from every background, including Filipino, Lebanese, Chinese, African American and Puerto Rican.
Every child who is adopted is wanted, and has been and continues to be part of some parent’s dream. Your child will be raised as our family and we will offer them every opportunity possible. We will always speak about you with kindness, respect, and understanding. We will be the kind of parents you are hoping to find for your child and we will love them with all our hearts.
