Dear Birth Parent,
First and foremost, we would like to acknowledge the courageous decision you are making. We cannot imagine all of the emotions that you must be experiencing. Although we do not yet know you, there are a couple of things about you that we are already confident in; you are selfless, and you are caring. Please know that we admire your courage and strength in pursuing adoption as a choice for your child.
We are very grateful for any potential consideration you may give to us as prospective parents to your child. Becoming parents has been our dream for many years now. Providing a loving and supporting home for your child is something that would mean the world to us. We have so much love in our hearts and trust without hesitation that your child will be unbelievably loved as they become part of our family.
We began dating in high school after being introduced through a mutual friend. After dating consistently throughout high school and college we married in 2013. As of March 2021, we have been together for 17 years. We spend our leisure time visiting the beach, taking random road trips, trying new restaurants, watching movies (especially Disney and comedies), playing games, going for long walks, and discovering new music together.
Christina LOVES Mermaids. She has been crazy about Mermaids since seeing the Little Mermaid as a young child. Christina has a “go with the flow” type of personality. She is very supportive and a great listener. One of Christina’s biggest hobbies is Arts/Crafts. Christina also loves all types of music and can be caught singing all over the house and in the car.
Steve enjoys watching baseball, basketball, football, and hockey. Steve also enjoys playing basketball and baseball. Besides sports, he enjoys watching YouTube, listening to music, driving, and playing video games. Steve is caring, confident and playful. He will always be there for his loved ones and has a never-say-die spirit.
We both have two siblings each. Our siblings are all married and live within 15 minutes of us, except for Christina’s brother who is stationed out of state. We have four nieces and a nephew. Steve’s parents live 10 minutes from us, and Christina’s parents recently retired to Florida. Our families have been very supportive along the way as we pursue adoption to grow our family.
We have always been there for each other throughout our relationship with support and unconditional love. There is no doubt in our minds that your child will be the recipient of the same type of bond and unconditional love/support that we have shown each other over the years. Thank you for taking the time to learn a little bit more about us. We hope to have the opportunity to speak with you one day soon.
Christina & Steve
