Your Plans For Child Care Arrangements: Andrew and I have a lot of freedom and flexibility with our schedules. We both work from home and plan to arrange our schedules such that one of us can be with our child as much as possible. We have an amazing network of family and friends who are willing to help out as well when needed.
Activities Enjoyed Together: We enjoy spending time with family and friends; whether it be gathering together for a traditional event like Christmas or a graduation or just getting together for a cook-out and to spend time together. We enjoy spending time at the lake, being outside kayaking or hiking. We like to learn new things and explore through travel and taking classes. We enjoy working on projects together: this year we have retiled the shower, painted the baby's room and laid new flooring in the kitchen. We like to laugh and enjoy each others company. We feel blessed to have each other and our wonderful support network.
Your Birth Mother Letter:
We are so grateful to you for considering an adoption plan for your baby. It is truly an act of selfless love and courage to make such a decision. We recognize the strength, honesty and amount of love needed to entrust someone else to raise your child and to make this decision. We feel honored and blessed to be considered as adoptive parents.
We are Carolyn and Andrew. We have been married for three and a half years. From the time we met, we both hoped to grow our family. We are so excited to be parents and feel we have so much love to give. Some qualities that we value in our own relationship, our relationships with others and hope to share with our child are love, honesty, respect, kindness, compassion, forgiveness, openness and understanding. We love to laugh, to learn and to experience new things. We value relationships and have wonderful family and friends. We look for the joys in each day and live with gratitude. We hope to encourage our child to be true to themselves, to be happy and healthy and to know that they are loved unconditionally.
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to introduce ourselves and to share some of our life details with you. Thank you for opening your heart to this possibility.
With love and gratitude,
Carolyn and Andrew
