Dear Expectant Parent(s),
You are the hero of your child’s story. We are here with open arms and ready to love your child unconditionally. We want you to trust that we will provide a stable, loving, and fulfilling life for your child. We are willing to share anything that will help you build this trust in us. We promise to always talk about you in a positive light. We will convey your love and devotion to wanting them to have the best opportunities. Whatever your story is, we will always share it in a respectful manner. We want your child to feel surrounded by love, and that includes yours.
Your child will be raised in an environment that centers around being young at heart and having fun. We are silly and laugh a lot, but also believe in hard work and dedication. We want to share everything we have learned along with the life lessons that are still to come. We place importance on education because we both have found school essential to our success. We look forward to reading to your child before bed and teaching them how to tie their shoes (Evan prefers bunny ear style). We look forward to wiping their nose and kissing the boo boos. We have always wanted to be parents and look forward to being there for all the things that shape a little person into becoming the person they are meant to be.
Our journey towards parenthood began 10 years ago with trying to conceive naturally, but unfortunately, we were unsuccessful. We took our time to come to terms with the realization that we would not be biological parents. We then decided together that adoption would be the right path for us. We believe our experiences happened in order for us to arrive at this point to meet you. We are believers that things tend to happen as they are meant to, even if some steps are hard and painful. After 15 years together and a lot of hard work, we created a life that we are very proud of that includes two loving adopted dogs, a large house fit for a family, good careers, and a support network of family and friends who are invaluable. Wholeheartedly, we feel we are at the best place in our lives to give your child the optimal environment to flourish and grow into the best version of themselves.
We respect you and the decision you are making. We are open to discussing what our relationship post-birth would be. We are flexible in respecting what works best for you, while we all keep in mind what is best for your child. We are not here to dictate our needs, we are here to support you in yours. Everything is a conversation. Let’s work together on what the best path forward would be.
Evan + Alana
