Dear Little One...
Hello! Hello! Hello!
Thank you for checking out our adoption profile! We’re honored to be under consideration as a potential family for your baby. We can only imagine all the feels you must be feeling. We want you to know we’re not just “here for your baby” – we’re here for you too. While we don’t know you yet, we already admire what a strong and loving person you are for considering adoption. We do not take this lightly.
Jeff and I always knew it was our destiny to find one another. (Our love was already written in the stars.) We feel the same way about the little one that will come into our lives. (They're the "little dipper" to our "big.") We already have love beyond measure on reserve for them.
We hope our family will grow to include the biological family of the child we’ll adopt. (After all, how could we possibly love a child, but not those who gave them life?) No matter what form our relationship takes we’ll build it together, and make sure it works for everyone. Especially your child.
We recognize what an enormous decision lies before you. Our goal is to give you a glimpse into who we are, what our life is like, and the love we would provide your child... so we wrote a letter to your baby.
Dear Little One,
Welcome to the world! We’ve been anxiously waiting for you.
Your adventure has just begun, and we look forward to being by your side as you explore all this world has to offer.
We can’t wait to teach you the fun games we grew-up playing and explore the places that always make us smile. Our hope for you is that you love life, and that you spend your childhood smiling and laughing.
We already have many hopes and dreams for you. Here are just some of them:
We hope that you drink your milk and eat your vegetables (but you’ll probably turn your nose up at some – because at 3yrs old, broccoli and cauliflower is gross).
We hope you get dirt under your fingernails as you make mud pies and later hike mountain trails.
We hope you get sand everywhere when we get home from chasing waves and seagulls at the beach.
We hope you have best friends, play with your cousins, and secretly get into silly mischief together (which as parents we probably already know about).
We hope you pick flowers, ride your bike, choose hobbies, read books and enjoy being a carefree kid.
We hope you scream at the top of your lungs with joy on roller coasters and take too many pictures.
We hope you try hard at school (even the subjects you don’t like); and hope you learn the difference between wisdom and test scores.
We hope we help you understand that you can be anything you want to be – but you’ll have to work hard to get there.
We hope you know we will always support you as you chase your dreams.
We hope you’ll know that your family loves you, wants the best for you and will always be there unconditionally.
We can’t wait to watch you grow quickly from an infant to a toddler, then into an inquisitive child and suddenly become a know-it-all teen. :-) Then someday we know that you’ll grow-up into an adult, and make decisions for yourself, and we look forward being there to support you then too.
As your parents, we know we won’t always get everything right... but we CAN promise that we’ll ALWAYS do what we believe is best for you!
We look forward to you joining our little family, and we will be forever grateful that your mom brought us together. We’re excited to meet you.
With all our love,
Nick & Jeff
