Letter

INTRO LETTER 

Hi! We are [Her name] and [His name] and we are exploring embryo

adoption after not being physiologically able to have biological children. We

are excited about embryo adoption as it allows us to experience the

pregnancy and birth of the child! We are thankful to be living in a time

where scientific progress has made this possible for us.

When the two of us met, things just clicked, and it felt so great to finally

meet our person. We have had a lot of adventures in our time together, but

both of us are most excited to be on the adventure of having children! It

hasn't been an easy journey, which we are sure is the case for any donor

family. However, we think this can only make us even more thankful and in

awe of our future children.

[Her name] works as a family medicine physician assistant. She loves the

relationship aspect of family medicine and especially loves her pediatric

patients. [His name] works in product innovation as a software development

manager and holds an advanced degree in psychology and computer

science. We have a sweet, old pup named Henry. We do not have any

children; however, [her name] fostered a little boy for two years several

years ago and he holds a very special place in her heart!

Both of us feel we have good experience with children. [Her name] babysat

growing up and nannied for twin infants after college. She also fostered for

two years. [His name] has a sister who is 20 years younger than him, who he

helped raise, and has served as an 'uncle' for many of our friends' children

at multiple ages. ([Her name] here- I have never seen a more kind, patient,

and gentle person than [His name]. He is so good with children; they all love him.

He loves to get on their level and teach them new things and truly delights

in this. It is amazing to watch.) We are both proponents of positive

parenting. We have read No-Drama Discipline and The Whole Brain Child,

among many others! We are driven to seek the cause of a child's behavior

instead of negatively reacting to the behavior, to redirect instead of

punishing and to always offer love and safety. We are excited to teach our

children through reading and engaging activities.

We are lucky to have an excellent support system. Both families are

excited for this journey. [His name] family lives in England and the Netherlands

and are always only a quick Facetime (or a slightly longer plane ride) away.

[Her name] family lives nearby. They were very involved with her former

foster son, and we expect them to be even more available once we have

children. We also have a strong and reliable friend group that has already

been such a positive support during this journey-many of whom have

young children. We have no shortness of love and support surrounding us!

[His name] here - I was adopted from England, along with my biological sister, to

a couple from the Netherlands who had also exhausted all physiological

options for a biological child. I was raised in The Hague until I was 18 and

then I spent 12 years living across the globe during military service. As an

adopted child I have experience that will be beneficial as a parent of an

 

adopted child, and my global life experience will help provide different

viewpoints to our children as they grow up in a world that is more-than-ever

connected through digital means.

We live in a home we recently bought in preparation for extending our

family. It has extra bedrooms for the children and a large, fully-fenced yard

to play in. The house backs up to a large park with walking trails, a duck

pond, playgrounds, a championship golf course, tennis and pickleball

courts, as well as a public library. The elementary school is only a

two-minute walk away. It is a quiet and safe neighborhood in the heart of

our city, near all attractions and the best children's hospital in the area. We

both have well-paying jobs and financial security. We are debt-free other

than a mortgage and have the means to provide a safe and comfortable life

for our children.

In our spare time, we both enjoy outdoor activities together such as cycling

and hiking. We like to visit museums and other culturally significant places

on our travels and try to fit in a few city breaks a year to learn new things.

We both read a lot and strongly believe in continued education throughout

adulthood. We like cooking and trying new cuisines. [His name] enjoys DIY

projects and pretty much any water-based sport, having grown up on the

ocean. He is a master scuba diver and strong swimmer. [Her name] enjoys

photography, interior design, and painting. She is very creative.

Having children is our greatest wish. We are sure that this resonates with

all donor families, as none of us have had an easy journey to this point.

Donating an embryo is such a unique and wonderful gift and we do not take

that lightly. If we did not believe we could provide a loving, safe and

nurturing home to children then we would not be going down this path.

There is no doubt in our minds that we are meant to be parents and would

be forever thankful if you would consider helping us become a mom and

dad.

REFERENCE LETTER 1

To Whom it may Concern:

Let me start this by saying my personal greatest achievement in my life is having and raising three amazing children who are now living successful lives and have made me so proud. I was one of the lucky ones. I was able to achieve pregnancy easily and had three healthy babies. I probably took that for granted at that time. But knowing so many adults who are now struggling with infertility (including my daughter and son in law) I feel very blessed.

 

We, as a family, love children. We are the ones in the room at a party with the kids and carrying the babies around. Even [Her name] younger brothers. [Her name] had the opportunity to foster a child from the ages of 2-4. She was an amazing mother who had the ability to love him immediately. She was the biggest advocate for his well being, his health, his happiness and most of all showed him so much love and life in the two years she was blessed to have him.  [Her name] has always dreamed of having a family of her own and has always told me that she felt it may not be in the traditional sense. I guess she had a gut feeling her life was going to be called to love a child or children other than her own biological child.

 

When [Her name] and [His name] started pursuing fertility issues, it was hard for them both. It was hard for their families who can't wait to be Uncles, Aunts and Grandparents. But never did they waiver from working together as a team to pursue the avenues and explore their options. They have a truly amazing relationship and support each other through the ups and downs of life. [Her name] and [His name] have a lot of friends who have children. [Her name] and [His name] are the ones who are always called upon to babysit. They will even take their friends' children to fun events that they see around the area. It has been so reassuring to watch [His name] be kind and gentle and fun with these children. I have no doubts in his ability to be an excellent father.

 

The truth of the matter is that whoever is lucky enough to have my daughter and son in law for parents will have hit the jackpot. We love big as a family and we are all here to support them and cheer them on through every step of this process. [Her name] and [His name] have proven that loving a child biologically yours or not, is about opening your heart and being ready for the greatest joy in your life.

 

We support them as a family, as a couple and as future parents. I cannot wait to watch them as Mom and Dad and become a "Coco" again. We all will be blessed.

Sincerely,


REFERENCE LETTER 2

To Whom It May Concern,

I am writng this letter to wholeheartedly recommend [Her name] and [His name] in their pursuit of embryo adoption. I have known [Her name] for over two decades and have the privilege of calling her my best friend. [Her name] knew from an early age that she wanted to become a mother one day. As the oldest sibling of three, she already inherently possessed the nurturing and protective qualites that were central in her incredible care for her younger brothers. She took up babysittng as early as she could, not for the extra cash, but because she genuinely loved being around children. I have never witnessed someone with more immense love, compassion, and unwavering commitment to children.

[Her name] steadfast love for children led her to become a foster parent and she was immediately an amazing mother to an incredible little boy. She provided him with so many great experiences and so much love in the two years he lived with her. I already knew she would be a great parent, but witnessing her love for this child strengthened my belief that she would unconditionally love any child and any future child(ren) of hers would be the luckiest in the world!

As [Her name] best friend, I can’t imagine a better partner than she found in [His name]. He has a very nurturing nature, he is patient, he is extremely intelligent and emotionally mature and the two of them have created a wonderful life with financial stability and a desire to always be learning and growing. Their dedication to fostering a supportive and stable household is evident in the way they interact with their extended family and friends, as well as their involvement in community service and volunteer work. Their ability to provide a secure and nurturing environment for a child is beyond question.

When my husband and I had our baby boy last year, [Her name] and [His name] were there for us every step of the way. They are the first people we call when we need a hand, and we trust them more than anyone with our child. Their love and care for him further exemplifies their readiness to take on the responsibilities of parenthood. Additionally, both of their families and our friend group are extremely supportive, live nearby, and ready to be there for [Her name] and [His name] like they have been there for us.

I highly recommend [Her name] and [His name], without reservation, and I am confident that they will be exceptional parents, providing the love, support, and guidance necessary for a child to thrive and reach their full potential. Should you require any further information or clarification, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely,


REFERENCE LETTER 3

To whom it may concern:

[Her name] and [His name] are a warm, loving, and responsible couple. They are surrounded by a strong and tight-knit social network, where the family is close by--both emotionally and geographically--and more than willing to help as needed. As a couple they have plenty of experience looking after young children and are regularly called on to babysit for friends in their peer group. [His name] was adopted at the age of six along with his younger sister, C, and realised at an early age that you do not have to be genetically connected to be loved unconditionally and accepted by extended families. [Her name] was a wonderful foster mom for multiple years. Both have experiences that already provide the understanding and empathy necessary to become adoptive parents.

[His name] and [Her name] are both well-respected in the community. They both also have a graduate-level education, secure careers, and are debt-free apart from their home. Their home itself is spacious and was recently purchased with a family in mind. It has a large garden that is securely fenced off and well-suited for family and play time. Within walking distance of their home you will find many important facilities for raising children: a large park and walking trail, health and sports facilities, an elementary, middle, and high school, and a public library less than 100 yards away. [His name] and [Her name] have a broad cultural background and are well-travelled internationally. They are emotionally and psychologically highly developed and situated in a strong and loving long-term relationship. In short, we know their child(ren) will have a loving home with terrific parents, and we can’t wait to become an aunt and grandparents.

Respectfully yours,

[His name] sister
[His name] parents
