Thank you for taking the time to read our letter. We are Paul and Christine, and we are grateful that you are taking the time to get to know us.
We are so happy that you are considering adoption. While we will never understand what you are going through, we are in awe of you. This gives us an incredible opportunity to expand our family. We would love to build a long-lasting relationship with you and already consider you part of our family too.
Our journey began 16 years ago when Paul asked Christine out on a date and, as they say, the rest is history! Throughout the journey of our relationship, we have had many ups including getting married, welcoming nephews and nieces into our family, and traveling together. The biggest thing we have been through is not being able to conceive a child. Family is very important to us and we always felt like our family was incomplete. So, after many conversations and prayers, we have decided to adopt.
We already love your child so much and would give them the best life possible. We both grew up with wonderful traditions and memories that we cannot wait to share and pass down. We are so excited to share our favorite things with your child, like going to Disney World, camping, enjoying sporting events, and spending time with our family and friends. Our families are very excited for us to expand our family; the grandmas are already arguing over who will get to watch them while we are at work J.
We live in a quiet and safe neighborhood where your child would have a great opportunity to run and play. We would love for your child to be involved in many activities. We both love music and have many musical instruments in the house. Paul was in band from 5th grade through high school and Christine was in choir from middle school until high school. We would encourage your child to play different sports and learn about what it means to be part of a team. Christine was in softball for 12 years. She also was involved in dance, Girl Scouts and church groups. Paul played baseball, basketball and roller hockey. We bowl in a league together and are both in separate golf leagues.
Our home life is very important to us as well. Teaching right from wrong and all the basics of raising a great person are things that are very important to us, and we have a solid foundation for raising a child in a loving home. Family values have been instilled in both of us from an early age.
Thank you again for taking time to read about us. We will keep you in our thoughts as you continue with the adoption process.
Paul and Christine
