We have so much respect for you and can only imagine what you are going through while you find a family for your child. You must be an incredibly strong person to start this process and do what you consider best for you and your baby. We would love to have an open adoption and to get to know you. We want to remain in contact and provide you with pictures and updates on your child so you can see them grow. We are open to yearly visits as well. Ultimately, we want you to decide how open you would like this adoption to be. We hope to see you as a part of our family, and we want your child to know where they came from and know how much you mean to us for giving us the opportunity to be parents.
We are happy to introduce ourselves to you. Our names are Alix and Collin. We have been together for almost 20 years and married for seven years. Collin’s best friend set us up in high school and the rest is history. We believe our relationship has lasted so long because we are very honest and laugh a lot. We make a great team and have been told by friends and family that we balance each other out. Collin is a bit more laid back and loves to make everyone laugh. Alix is more organized, and career-focused although she loves to joke around as well. We can’t imagine life without one another and can’t wait to start this new part of our lives!
We believe it takes a community to raise a child to be well-rounded and happy. We live very close to many friends and the majority of our family, all of whom are excited to see us become parents and grow our family. Both our parents are still married which is rare in these times. They are excited to have another grandchild to spoil! Our closest friends and many of our cousins have very young children and they can’t wait to have a new friend and playmate. We also have four nieces and nephews ranging in age from nine months to 14 years old. There is no doubt that everyone in our family with play a part in raising your child. We have very open and loving people in our family who all say we are overdue to become parents.
We truly believe that adoption is the best option for us, and we would be great parents to your child. We understand that adoption is a unique situation, but we will turn any challenges into opportunities to grow and learn. We plan to be proactive with therapy which we would do for any child. We will be very open about why they were adopted and where they came from. We hope that an open adoption will answer any questions they have and give them an even bigger family resource. It is important that we continue to educate ourselves on what we can do to help them as they grow older.
