We want to start off by saying that we can only imagine the hardship and whirlwind of emotions that come with considering adoption. We commend you for having the courage to consider this process. We realize that choosing a permanent home for your child must be a daunting task. We know that you will read many of these letters and we hope to give you an honest look at our lives and a potential future for your child.
We are happily married and have been together for four years. Brooklyn was born and raised California and has also spent time living in London, England, and Portland, Oregon. Aaron grew up in California. We recently purchased our first house in a safe, quiet neighborhood close to our childhood homes. Our home is surrounded by numerous parks and trees, has friendly neighbors and is only two miles from the beach.
Family is extremely important to both of us. We each have two brothers, and both of our parents are still happily married. We also have a large extended family, many of whom live locally. Brooklyn has two nieces and two sisters-in-law. Holidays are especially important to both sides of our family. We gather every year for both Christmas and Thanksgiving, with large groups of extended family and enjoy excellent food and company. We take pride in having traditions like Christmas Eve dinners, decorating fresh Christmas trees, and handing out Halloween candy every year. We are also the proud owners of a beautiful dog named Waffles. He is half Husky and half Akita and looks like a little white wolf. He is such a sweet, gentle dog and is an important part of our family. We love him dearly. Throughout our lives our families have helped us immensely and formed us into the people we are today. We hope to continue to provide a strong and supportive family environment for your child and to always be there for them no matter what happens.
Aaron is a machinist at a family-owned company and manufactures parts for the U.S. military. He enjoys working with his hands and fixing cars and things around the house. Brooklyn loves working with children and has been doing so for over 18 years. She has a bachelor's degree in Psychology, and it has helped her over the years while working with children. She currently works as a teacher with students from kindergarten to ninth grade. Although she loves her job, she plans to become a stay-at-home mom once we have a child in the house. We are both extremely fortunate that our parents took us to all sorts of beautiful and exotic places in the world. We will expose your child to the world of travel, so they can share the experiences that we had. We both share a strong love for the outdoors and will show your child the majestic beauty of nature. We look forward to camping, fishing, hiking, skiing, boating, and many more adventures with your child. We love going to Disneyland together, but Brooklyn is really the biggest fan in our household, so she cannot wait to share that passion with your child. Aaron cannot wait to teach your child to ride a bicycle and eventually a dirt bike.
Our parents helped us to be successful in school and we will give your children the same opportunities. We live within an excellent school system, and we will be there to help them succeed with all their educational goals. Since education is very valued in our family, we will also help them financially once they get into college. It is our goal that they learn as much as possible, not only from their schooling but from their life experiences as well.
Thank you so much for reading this letter from us to you. We consider all children to be gifts and are hoping that you will give us the most wonderful gift imaginable by adding a beautiful child to our family.
Brooklyn and Aaron
