​Dear Expectant Parent,
Thank you for being incredibly brave by considering adoption. We fully believe that this consideration requires courage, strength, and an endless amount of love.

Here is a little bit about us! While we initially bonded over our love of the outdoors and ramen, we quickly realized that our connection was much deeper. The importance of family and friends, kindness, service, and inclusivity are values we brought to our dating relationship and now bring to our marriage. It was on our first date when we initially talked about the concept of adoption and what it means to each of us. For both of us adoption is an act of service and a lifelong commitment full of unconditional love – a family. For us, adoption includes an open relationship with the birth parent(s) at a cadence that is in the best interest of your child.

This is our promise to you. We promise that your child will understand the tremendous sacrifice you have made out of love. We promise that your child will always know where he or she came from and how much you love him or her. We promise to provide an upbringing in which the values of generosity, kindness, inclusivity, and respect for others are taught everyday and are lived by in our home. We promise to provide a safe and loving home for your child. We promise to encourage your child’s hopes and dreams and foster their individuality. We promise that we will love your child unconditionally.

We are both incredibly committed to and hopeful for adoption. We hope we can be part of your journey and provide you with a sense of peace no matter what you decide. We are keeping you in our hearts.
