Dear First Family,
Thank you for taking the time to get to know us. We hope to have an ongoing open relationship with our child’s birth family. We want to acknowledge your strength and courage. Whatever plan you make for you and your child will surely be one built with love and a great deal of thought.
Our names are Brian and Anna Marie. We met almost 10 years ago on a blind date set up by a mutual friend and were married three years later. We have fallen in love with the diversity and outdoor recreation that our community has to offer and chose to put down roots. Brian is a partner in a local accounting firm, and Anna Marie teaches 8th grade English. Every year she falls in love with a new group of students and feels more invested in teaching and the community. We have two dogs – Zula and Zeppelin who are a big part of our family. In our free time we love to bike, hike, camp, go to the movies, host get togethers with friends and play board games.
We have known we wanted children for a long time and adoption has always been something we considered. We want nothing more than to be able to be parents. We firmly believe that love makes a family. An ongoing open relationship with our child’s birth family is our heart’s hope. The more people that love and care for a child the better. We plan to always be open with them about their story. If we are chosen to parent your child they will always know where they came from, and will be cherished for who they are. We will adore our child and be grateful for every day that we get to be their parent.
We hope you know that you are supported as you make this choice. We honor the love you are showing for this child and, we sincerely wish you well.
Anna Marie and Brian
