Dear Birth Parent,
How amazingly brave, thoughtful, and loving you are to consider bringing this baby into the world. We can’t imagine what you are going through, but we know your love and compassion go beyond words in making this decision. That kind of love shows how beautiful and courageous of a person you are, and we support whatever you choose to do.
Our family is full of love, faith, commitment, and trust. We met in church youth group when we were teenagers, went to the same college, and have been together ever since. We were unable to have children of our own, so we decided adoption was our best option for growing our family. We are committed to raising a child who is loving, kind, honest, and caring. As teachers, scientists, and faithful Christians, we will foster an environment filled with fun, learning, and creativity that inspires a child to achieve her / his dreams. We are so excited to share our lives with you and your child, and we look forward to an opportunity to get to know you better and share in this journey.
Rebecca: Stephen is the love of my life and will make a terrific dad. He is kind, caring, and fun loving. He is a great mentor to the youth of our church. Working with our church youth group has given him skills that will be an asset as a father. People know that Stephen is someone who can be counted on to help where he is needed. He is a brilliant scientist who loves to ask why something works the way it does and is eager to help your child learn about the world as he or she grows. He is a natural teacher. Stephen has many talents including being a fabulous singer who loves all kinds of music. He also loves sports especially basketball and football and traveling to new places. He can hardly wait to teach a child all he knows about whatever sport they choose. Stephen enjoys trying new things whether it is riding a new roller coaster at an amusement park or visiting somewhere we have never been. Stephen is the best man I know and will be the best father. He is already the best husband anyone could ask for.
Stephen: I was changed forever the day Rebecca walked into my life. She’s my everything! No words can describe the beauty of her heart and soul. Rebecca’s amazingly smart, loving, generous, caring, thoughtful, and kind. She will be a great mom. Rebecca is always faithful and actively engaged with our family, church, and friends. She is always there for me; my everything. I love her with all of my heart. Rebecca loves to serve others, care for animals (she’s actually a licensed veterinarian too!), teach, plan and host events, watch movies and shows, and tirelessly send cards and letters for birthdays, anniversaries, prayer, and encouragement. She loves to travel and explore adventure parks like Universal Studios and Disney, take boat and tour rides, visit scenic and historical locations, and cheer for our team at football, basketball, and baseball games. Rebecca is an amazing woman, and will be an amazing mom.
We live in a 4-bedroom, 2.5-bath home with big playroom, 2-car garage, and fenced-in back yard. Our neighborhood is safe, has tons of children who play together outside, a community swimming pool, basketball, volleyball, and tennis courts, and has an elementary school across the street. We love our neighborhood! We also love animals, and currently have 1 dog (Arya) and 3 cats (Nala, Chloe, and Melody).
We love to go on trips, watch movies, decorate for holidays, volunteer, play board games or video games, travel to the beach and mountains, and pull for our team at college football, basketball, and baseball games. We are leaders in our church youth group and music programs, and are always doing fun things with our church family and friends.
Our family is loving and loyal, and we want you to know that in our home, an adopted child will be unconditionally loved and supported. We will devote our lives to providing an adopted child with the love and resources we can offer within a safe and stable home. We want our adopted child to know where they came from, and to have contact with you as an integral part of his / her life. We plan to raise our child with an understanding and appreciation for you and the sacrifice you are making. As youth leaders, we have years of experience helping children of various ages learn and grow to the best of their abilities. We envision our adopted child will have every opportunity to learn and grow to their full potential in our home, and a life-long support system. This begins with a well-rounded education, freedom to choose their own path, and support to achieve long-lasting success. We will raise this child to have a good moral character and to always stand up for what they believe. We will also be open about adoption with this child. It is important for a child to know where they come from, and we are open to the possibility of establishing and maintaining an active relationship with you, the birth parent(s).
Thank you for taking the time to read our profile and considering us as adoptive parents to your child. We have a lot of love and support to give, and we know whichever decision you make it will be the right choice for you. It is our hope that you are at peace with that choice.
Rebecca & Stephen
