Letter

INTRO LETTER 

I hope this letter finds you in good health and high spirits. We are writing to express our heartfelt desire and sincere intent to adopt an embryo, a decision that has been carefully considered and deeply rooted in our personal journey.

 

To begin with, I want to share our profound longing to become parents, and to experience the joys and responsibilities of raising a child. Due to certain medical circumstances, we have been unable to create a biological child on our own and are therefore seeking support. These circumstances have led us to explore alternative paths to parenthood, ultimately bringing the idea of embryo adoption.

 

Embryo adoption represents a unique and beautiful way to create a family. It will allow us to provide a loving home for a child who might not otherwise have the opportunity to grow and thrive. We believe that every embryo represents a potential life, a future filled with possibilities and love, and are eager to be the parents who can nurture that potential into the world.

 

We are aware that parenthood is a profound and life-altering commitment, one that we are fully prepared to embrace. We have done extensive research and have taken counsel to understand the intricacies and responsibilities associated with this process. We are committed to providing a stable, loving, fun and thoughtful home for our child, where they can grow, learn, and flourish.

Respecting and honoring the importance of preserving the cultural and biological heritage of our child is important to us. We are committed to celebrating the origins of our embryo, all while fostering a sense of identity and belonging within our family and are open to discussions about their unique journey.

 

We understand that the embryo adoption process may be complex, and are committed to working closely with professionals, agencies, and experts to ensure that it is carried out ethically and in the best interests of the child.

 

Thank you for your time and consideration. We are so excited about the possibility of becoming loving and devoted parents.

 

Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or require further information. We are more than willing to provide any additional details or documentation needed to move forward with this process.

 

Who are we?

My wife and I are loving and thoughtful people. We are detail-orientated and mindful. We truly believe in living life to its fullest and for us that means celebrating a brisk autumn day, getting up early to walk on the beach, planting bulbs in anticipation for spring and taking the time to make a delicious and special dinner any day of the week. At our house, there is always music playing, a meal being planned, a backyard garden in bloom and the plan for a fun day. We work hard and we play hard, we cherish life and know how fortunate we are. We are generous and active in our community. Our friends and family know they can count on us.

 

What is our lifestyle like?

Our lifestyle is dynamic but relaxed. We invest in our home and gardens and have created a sanctuary to share with our loved ones. We love being near the ocean and in nature. We have a loving and supportive social circle. We live in a community with fantastic educational choices from pre-K to college. We believe that education begins in the home with small domestic responsibilities like taking care of pets, gardening and any fun do-it-yourself home projects.

 

What are our holiday traditions?

We love to celebrate and make every day, but especially holidays, special. We have a Christmas Eve tradition where I don a vintage Santa suit and traipse across some of our friends’ and families’ lawn with a sack full of gifts and leave them in the yard. We fill stockings for all of our pets. We always make it magical!

 

What are our careers like?

My career has been dedicated to nourishing people with food that makes them feel good. I am a passionate Chef, VP & Culinary Director for a vegetarian concept that is committed to energizing our guests and taking care of our planet. I love teaching people how to cook delicious and nutritionally thoughtful food. My wife is a Chief of Staff for a well-known restaurateur and entrepreneur. She previously was in the Foreign Service and before that had a career in the art world. She is able to work from home 80% of the time. Our careers have afforded us deep connections with an influential and dependable support system. We are very fortunate!

 

What is our home like?

Our home is our sacred place. We live in a renovated Queen Anne Victorian and consider ourselves caretakers. We take pride in our space and have made each room intentional and special. We have a fenced-in backyard with elaborate gardens. We love growing vegetables and flowers. We love being outside as much as possible. Our house has many rooms that can easily be used as nurseries and extra bedrooms. More importantly, we have lots more love to give—it’s a resource that doesn’t run out.

 

IVF Journey

We started relatively late and, as we were over 35, decided to go the route of IVF with pre-implantation genetic testing. That meant foregoing an infertility diagnosis, so everything was self-pay. We did five egg cycles and two embryo transfers that did not take. We understand it is a numbers game, but the numbers have not been on our side in the past four years. One of us was adopted by one of our parents, so we have always been open to an alternative path to becoming parents.

 

REFERENCE LETTER 1

September 12, 2023

 

To Whom It May Concern,

 

It is with great pleasure and strong conviction that I write this recommendation letter stating my support for both LW and LD as they aspire to become adoptive parents.

 

As a first cousin to LW, I can say I have known LW all my life, or for 44 years at the time of this writing. Over these years, I have many fond memories of family gatherings with LW and can testify to the great love and affection LW has always had for her family and friends. From a young age, I always looked up to LW and admired her zest for life, her love of art and travel, her amazing work ethic, her loyalty to those dear to her. I am grateful for LW taking me under her wing from a young age and for the great role model she continues to be for me today.

 

I met LD, the love of LW’s life, 6 years ago and can attest to the perfect match they make and what a beautiful home and life they have built together. LD is an extremely caring, creative, and centered addition to our family, with a sharp focus on what matters most to her. As devoted parents to their 5 beloved dogs, I am keenly aware of LW and LD’s deepest desire to become adoptive parents and to raise a child of their own.

 

I have witnessed firsthand the deep love, empathy, great fun and joy both LW and LD have bestowed upon my three young children, now ages 8,10,12. LW and LD are the first to jump up to bandage my children’s scrapes and find a means to distract them from the pain, to dig out popsicles for a pleasant surprise, to get down on the floor to play games, and to cook up a wonderful kid-friendly meal that will expand their palette.

 

LW and LD have so much love, time, wisdom, and devotion to share. I am very confident that LW and LD will make amazing adoptive parents to one lucky child!

 

Kind Regards,

 


REFERENCE LETTER 2

September 12, 2023

 

To Whom it May Concern:

 

It is both an honor and a pleasure to write a letter of support for LD and LW. I have known both for approximately three years and I am grateful to have such kind, caring and genuine friends. They are the kind of people who are always there for their family and friends, they are people you can count on to be there for you when you are in need.

 

LD and LW have built a life together that is filled with love and support, they complement each other and continue to grow in their relationship. As a couple, they have always expressed wanting to have children and know that this is something they both are very much looking forward to doing.

 

I have seen them interact with kids of all ages and know that they would be wonderful parents as they have always exhibited patience, love, compassion in all their interactions. I have observed their playful interactions with our friends’ children and believe they would provide a loving home.

LD and LW have accomplished careers which will allow them to provide a wonderful life to a child. They are well balanced in managing both time for their careers and time for family and friends. They have a village of people including myself that will provide support in their parenting journey.

As a mother of three and a child welfare professional, I truly believe that LD and LW will embrace motherhood and I am in full support of their efforts to have a child of their own.

Sincerely,

 


REFERENCE LETTER 3

To Whom it May Concern,

 

This letter is to express our full support for LD & LW in granting them this wonderful opportunity to experience one of life’s greatest gifts. My wife and I have curated hundreds of momentous occasions over the years at our award-winning restaurant, The (name of restaurant), in (city and state), and on the evening of January 19th, 2019, we had the privilege of hosting LD and LW’s wedding. They have since become our dearest and most cherished friends, celebrating special occasions, traveling, and spending Holidays together. We have had the pleasure of seeing firsthand their incredible inherent qualities and are completely supportive of their future journey into parenthood. We have the greatest faith and trust in LD and LW and their ability to raise a loving family. In fact, we consider them as our own family, and would love to see them grow and expand theirs.

 

LD and LW are two independent and united individuals whom we both adore and admire. Despite each having extremely rewarding and successful careers, and an abundance of love, there is still the one dream of parenthood that has yet to come to fruition. To date, they have endured several heartbreaking attempts to create a family, while remaining extremely compassionate, hopeful, and introspective. Undeterred, they continue to persevere and invest in fulfilling their dreams to experience all the blessings a child will bring. They are hardworking, goal achieving women that possess the motivation and desire to support a growing family as well as the ability to provide a prime quality upbringing any child would cherish. They are inspiring role models to our daughter M, our son C, their nieces and nephews, and their perfectly pampered pups. As a couple, LD and LW are creative and diligent planners who thrive in nourishing everyone around them. Whether hosting a weekend at their oceanfront beach house on (name of place) or a dinner party at their magnificent and historical (name of house) in (city), they always create the most magical moments for family and friends.

 

These incredible human beings have established a life-long commitment to each other and embody the caring, nurturing, and selfless values it takes to raise a child. These characteristics, with the guidance of loved ones and their natural instincts will lead them through the many joys and challenges parenthood presents. The only piece missing is your precious and generous gift.

 

The world needs more LDs and LWs. We know in our hearts that they will be outstanding parents, and they are the most appreciative and worthy candidates you will ever encounter. We ask that you please accept and embrace LD and LW’s request as graciously as they will your donation.

 

After all, what is better than a mother’s love? In this case, the love of two Mothers.

 

Respectfully yours,
