When my parents told me I was going to be a big sister (I was 6 and prayed for a little sister every night). When she was born I went around to the whole neighborhood and handed out pink bubble gum cigars and couldn't wait to tell the world I had a baby sister. It was a dream come true.

'Mamas adventure train': once a year my mom will pick a fun surprise for my family and no one knows when or what it is.

Letter

INTRO LETTER 

First off, we would like to say how humbled and honored we are that you are reading this letter and are considering us as adoptive parents. Our journey to parenthood has not been an easy one. We have faced struggles with severe endometriosis and one disappointment after another with our attempted traditional adoption journey. I have had my fallopian tubes removed so we are unable to use my eggs and N has a rare blood clotting disorder in his family (which luckily he does not have) but did not want to take the chance of passing it down to a child. We already feel a kinship with you because we know that you were once where we are now and you understand the struggles of our journey better than anyone. You understand the feelings of darkness, defeat and doing everything you can to try and remeber that someday there will be a perfect baby in your arms and that all the pain will all be worth it in the end. All of our struggles have brought us here, to Embryo Adoption which is where we feel like is finally our right path. We truly believe that God has a plan for us and that our trials and tribulations were the necessary path we needed to go down to meet our future baby. This journey has strengthened us as a couple and showed us how much we truly want to be parents. We know that all we have gone through will only make us better parents and give us the utmost appreciation and love for our future child. We will tell them how they were so badly wanted that we did everything we possibly coulkd to bring them into this world. We will tell them about the wonderful couple who gave us the opportunity to complete our family. Saying yes to being apart of our journey to parenthood will not only give us the greatest gift we could ever ask for but it will instill hope back into our lives.

 

We would love for you to get to know a little more about us!

 

Our home:

We own a cozy 3 bedroom, 4 bathroom townhouse in the suburbs. We have a very safe neighborhood where kids ride their bikes and neighbors get together for cookouts. We live on the west coast all year and spend our summers at our beach house on the east coast. T's parents and grandmother live right up the street and N's parents reside on the east coast. They visit often, spending lots of quality time together. In the summers, both sides of the family get together. We are so excited about this for our child because they will experience so many different areas of the country and make so many great memories with family.

 

Our hobbies:

N's hobbies include hiking, playing soccer, reading and making puzzles. He has been playing soccer since he was a kid and referees soccer in his spare time. We cannot wait to teach his child how to play soccer and maybe evern coach their soccer team someday!

 

T's hobbies include horseback riding, yoga, and teaching Sign Language. T looks forward to teaching the baby baby-sign language to help make communication easier! T and N ski toghether every chance they get. As a tradition they pick a new place every year for their annual ski trip.

 

Family Traditions/holidays:

We are big on family traditions! Every summer T and her family march in the family 4th of July parade. Every year we pick a fun new theme, and adults and kids alike dress up. It is great fun where even distant family members get to connect during the parade and the pot luck brunch that follows. T also grew up wearing matching PJ's on Christmas Eve. N joined this tradition when they were married and loves it too.

N and his family are big on Christmas traditions. Every year they watch 'A Christmas Story' together on Christmas morning, something both families now share. They also make it a point to travel to New York to watch the New York Yankees play. Both T and N's parents have been married for over 40 years and both families grew up eating at the dinner table together as a family every night.

 

Our immediate family-

T has a younger sister who works as a personal injury attorney on the west coast, they are very close, talk on the phone almost every day, and visit each other very often. She is very excited to be our baby's godmother. Both of T's parents are both retired and live up the street from them and they see each other all the time. They will be able to help out anytime that we need them.

N has 2 younger sibilings. His younger sister works as a speech patholoigist on the east coast. His younger brother also lives on the east coast and works as a Sports Scientist. They always facetime each other anytime a big soccer game is on, a hobby the three of them share. Both of N's parents are also retired and we have a great time with them at the beach when we visit every summer.

 

We are very blessed to have a very large group of friends, lots of cousins, and amzing extended families. As they say, it takes a village, and we have the best, most loving village eager to help this child live its best life!

 

Raising a child-

We will give this child a home filled with unconditional love, stabillity, adventure and joy. We will always put them first and give them every tool to succeed in life. We will expose them to everything to help them find their passion, filled with family and friends; this childs life will be laced with love and support.

T will be a stay at home mom, taking great care of the child and bringing the child to many fun toddler activities. N, a very family type of guy, can't wait to be a very hands on dad as he has a very flexible work schedule.

 

Thank you for your consideration!

With love and gratitude,

T and N

 

 

REFERENCE LETTER 1

 

To Whom it May Concern,

It is with great pleasure that I write this letter of recommendation for N and T to be adoptive parents. I have known T for fifteen years. We became fast friends when we first met in a small town in Rhode Island, and our friendship has remained strong into adulthood. She is exceptionally caring of those she loves. Her friends are considered family, and she always puts in the effort to celebrate important events in their lives in a big way. True to a maternal nature, she often puts others before herself. And although she is selfless in many ways, she understands the importance of and practices balancing her own needs to maintain healthy relationships with her loved ones. A lesson that, as a mother myself, I am continually trying to perfect. T is wise beyond her years, and I take her advice to heart. She has been able to navigate through life from a place of love, not fear, and she leaves everyone she meets with a positive imprint.

N is her perfect match. He is practical, reliable, and steadfast. It is abundantly clear how much he adores T, not only in words but in action. I’ll never forget when they were planning their wedding. T was picking out centerpieces, while N was shopping for the best health insurance options! He places value on stability and preparation for the future, which is incredibly important when entering parenthood. His levelheaded nature is complemented by his ability to also be flexible. He tackles new skills, such as painting their house or repairing the grill, with determination and pride. He has strong moral values but appreciates differing perspectives and indulges in conversation with impartiality and understanding. He loves to read and is incredibly smart. Aside from being a loving and stable partner, Nick wants nothing more than to be a father – to teach, to provide, and to guide his future generation.

Together, N and T would be extraordinary parents. They share similar values. They treat each other with respect, and they would role model good communication through active listening and talking in ways that make their child feel important and valued. They are hard workers. T built her own business teaching sign language to children and adults at the age of 23 and has continued to expand it into an impressive career. N works as an engineer for a defense company. They recently ventured into purchasing real estate to continue to build their future and support a family. Their business mindset and financial literacy is an invaluable lesson that is not often taught in the classroom. They are adventurous – avid skiers, travelers, and outdoorsy explorers. In fact, T is the most fun person I know. She dives into new experiences with an attitude for living life to the fullest, and N wholeheartedly embraces the adventure. Their child would have a full life, not only with endless love and adoration, but with experiences that shape them into a well-rounded and unique individual.

I can say with absolute certainty that there is nothing in their character or relationship that would prevent N and T from being exceptional parents. I feel honored to be able to speak on their behalf, and I ask that you provide them the opportunity to create a loving home for an adopted child.

 

Kind Regards,

Sarah 

 

REFERENCE LETTER 2

To whom it may concern,

As T's mom it seems to make sense to start at the beginning, when T was my tiny baby. I was in my 30’s when T was born, she was the much anticipated first grandchild on my side. This baby was the joy of our lives, my husband and I were married 10 years before we received this great gift - a child to love. Truth be told she was a fantastic baby, she was so happy - all he time. She was infectious, when she was a toddler, old ladies in the market would stop me, being inexplicably drawn to her, and she would stroke their hand. It was as if she knew that’s what they needed. T was always a very empathetic child, she shined with goodness, kindness and patience. In school with teachers and children she was much loved. But even more than that she was admired. That has persisted to this day, her friends adore her, they lean on her and seek out her advice and friendship. She has relationships with friends she has kept throughout her life and takes the time to reach out to each of them on a regular basis.

In school she would take kids that had difficulties under her wings and they would thrive, as she grew older her soft presence would invoke a trust among her peers, they often confided in her and she would always be the the first to help, she was the one you could count on. For instance, she helped a male friend overcome the abuse he endured from his dad. A cheerleader, who was the most popular girl in school, approached T and told her she was miserable in her cool crowd of cheerleaders, T befriended her and introduced her to a few other girls during a girls night. She wrote the most beautiful page in T's yearbook saying her high school experience was awesome because of T. She intervened with a classmate’s drug addiction, delivering her personally to rehab twice, not only saving her life but for a decade now she is clean, happy and productive. She singlehandedly pulled together soft ball game against teachers and students and raised money for a teachers dying son - enough for their last trip to Disney. Her high school principle asked the town council to make a scholarship available to her as a good citizen award, and they did. In college, she not only won an award for compassion working with disabled individuals, but they made up the award just for her!! It was such an honor to see her receive that award.

I tell you these things because T is unassumingly awesome. She is the best person know, She has every friend she’s ever known, she makes people around her want to be better. With all this she is also a productive, mature, hard working woman. She has a real sense of pride in her work, and she has always accomplished all of the goals she sets for herself. I may have gotten lengthy but I wanted you to understand her character, and to understand that our family and extended family are very close, warm and supportive of one another. Our ‘village’ nurtured both of my children and the experience was both humbling, and made all of us better people.

When she met N, she was swept away. I asked her, so who is this boy who asked you out? She said it was her friend Carissa’s cousin. I asked her to tell me about him and this is exactly what she said “ He’s different than most of the guys I’ve met, he knows who he is, and he’s the most genuinely kind person I ever met”. I took me back because that’s how I describe her!

At the two months mark of dating, N told me that he wasn’t looking for a wife, but he fell in love with her and she is his future. I thought that was very impressive from someone so young, to make me feel that he valued my child. When she brought N home about a week after they were dating, he became a regular after work. We all got to know him, and as a mom who wants to understand what kind of man her daughter is dating and possibly marrying, I made sure to know him best. I found out that he was raised similar to T - in a stable, hard working, moral, home. Homes where parents loved their children, who directed their children to have a good, happy, fulfilled, productive lives. N was a serious young man, the oldest in his family he is an achiever, he is a saver, he is a planner, an avid reader, intelligent, kind, caring, with a even temperament. He has the patience of a saint, he’s proud of who he is and that’s an important trait to me because it shows that he’s committed to be the kind of man that would be a good husband, father and provider. I could tell his parents raised him and his siblings very well. In getting to know his family, there is a lot of love in their home and they are very sweet people.

N has a maternal instinct, he cooks, cleans and takes care of his home. Growing up, the family has a dog who suffers from anxiety and is easily upset, N will cradle him in his arms, walking him endlessly, calming him. When he would work all day he would come home and make dinner at least 3 nights a week, so his mom could relax after her work day. He is so sweet and attentive to his Nana, he’s a church goer and prays to God. It was a blessing that my daughter could meet a man who cherished her, and who took care of her heart.

Their wedding day was glorious, my husband and I knew that they built a solid base, had such level heads, and worked through issues as a team. Overhearing so many conversations after dinner at our house, I was so impressed that they shared so much commonality in what they saw and wanted for their future and how well they worked together to insure their goals as a married couple. I was very impressed with how they listened to each other and how they held each others best interests at heart. I loved seeing how much N respected my

daughter, her feelings and opinions and vice versa.

Naturally one of their goals is to become parents. Neither of them hesitated to explore adoption. I cannot stress enough how blessed the child they adopt will be, to be in a home filled with stability, and unconditional love, a home filled with values, faith, mutual respect, and admiration. This child will have a bolstered self esteem, will through N and T as well as grandparents and extended family will feel acceptance, love, support and will feel cherished. This child will glow in the light of our love. When T was about 2 or three my girlfriend Donna told me that some of our friends said, “Maria is spoiling that baby”, my friend said she replied “ It might look like that but this child isn’t spoiled, she is treasured”. This little darling will be a treasured member of our family with the love and support of a countless number of T and N's friends, and of warm loving support from all of their families. We will be this little sweethearts village.

Conversely, T and N cannot possible fathom how this child will deepen their lives, and this child will give their lives a richness more meaning than they can imagine. I am so excited for them and the all encompassing love they will feel and use to create their family.

My husband and I are thrilled for their journey, we love both of them as our children, are as proud of the people they have become more than you can imagine. They both are a joy and we can’t wait until they bring a little angel into all of our lives and into our family.

 

-Maria F

REFERENCE LETTER 3

To Whom it May Concern,

We are writing to you in regards to T and N pursuing adoption. We are incredibly supportive of their decision and are excited at the potential for them to grow their family.

We have known N for 13 years, meeting in college and seeing him grow into adulthood. N has always been the most responsible and mature member of our friend group, many of us calling him “Dad” long before this process. Many of us go to him for advice on various topics, including finances. N is a very caring person and extremely conscious of peoples needs and feelings, always being the first person to lend a helping hand. He is also one of the most practical and organized people we know. Having been on several trips together, N plans ahead and makes sure everyone has anything they might need. On top of being an excellent friend, we have witnessed his academic talents turn into a highly successful career. We believe all these qualities N possesses will make him an outstanding, caring, and loving father. Having T by his side has only made him better over the years.

Seven years ago, T came into N’s life and immediately became our friend. T is the most positive, outgoing, and caring person we have met. Just like N, she is always there to make you feel welcome and taken care of. We have never witnessed more of a supportive, nurturing relationship than T and N. Their love for one another is evident to anyone they meet. N and T complement each other incredibly well; they have the same interests, are willing to joke around, and always looking for an adventure.

All these traits translate to how N and T will be as parents, and many of these qualities are something we have been able to witness with our own children. We are so excited to see N and T grow their family, it is something they have expressed repeatedly over the years. We believe that they will give a child the most loving and supportive home.

 

Sincerely,

J& K
