FAVOURITES

19122023_2

19122023_1

Actor

Hmm... there are a lot I could name, but one recent favorite is John Krasinski.

This changes, but right now I'm enjoying watching Mark Wahlberg, Jeremy Renner and Woody Harrelson's acting careers.

Animal or Pet

We have two very sweet two year old cats, Winston and Cece (but I'm also a dog person as well).

Probably cats, because we have two great ones now (Cece and Winston) and lost an 18-year old one two years ago, but I love animals.

Author

I can't narrow it down to one so I'll pick five: CS Lewis, Fyodor Dostoevsky, JRR Tolkien, John Steinbeck,

Bedtime story

I loved "The Little Engine That Could" as a child.

Anything by Dr. Seuss. I grew up on those books - Green Eggs and Ham, etc.

Beverage / Drink

Seltzer or black coffee, depending on the time of day.

Kombucha and seltzer

Book

I loved the both the Narnia series by CS Lewis and JRR Tolkien's Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit as a kid, and hope to read it aloud to my child one day.

Candy Bar

Butterfinger

I don't eat many candy bars, but when Hershey's miniatures are offered, I'm looking for the Special Dark!

Childhood Memory

I have a lot, but I lived in Mexico form the ages of 13-15 so that is one definite standout favorite memory now.

Car trips with my family. On family vacations, or going to see our grandparents, my dad would put on some music, often that was new (he liked to surprise us with a new album), and we would sing, ride and do the reading/coloring activities my mom brought us. We had good conversations and just enjoyed our time together.

Color

Blue/green

Dessert

Either pumpkin pie or this chocolate pudding/whipped cream dessert that my mom makes that we appropriately call "chocolate stuff."

A warm brownie with ice cream (brownie a la mode!)

Disney Movie

Inside Out (I know that's Pixar!), was FANTASTIC. But I love the original Beauty and the Beast, also. Lots of good ones.

Car

The Ford Edge that I'm driving right now! I love that car. It drives well, gets good gas mileage, has a keypad entry (absolutely necessary for this runner!), and fits all of my sports stuff along with groceries! I really like my car!

Job

Designer for bands/record labels making album covers, posters, websites, merch, etc. (I'm a graphic designer/web designer by trade)

Voiceover actor, and I'm actually about to start working toward this on a part-time basis.

Family Activity

One of our favorite things to do is work on puzzles together.

We love going to our favorite beach. We also love to settle down with a good movie or tv show.

Restaurant

I don't do much fast food, but Chipotle is good and Cook Out is up there because of their milkshakes.

I don't do much fast food, but when I do, it's Jersey Mike's or Chick-fi-la!

Flower

Fruit

I eat a banana and an apple pretty much every day, but I think my favorite fruit is papaya. It's so good.

Hobby

No Data

No Data

Hobby

Probably playing guitar. I play electric and acoustic guitar, as well as some bass. I play in a 90's cover band, as well as playing at church on some Sunday mornings.

A love to take a long run while I listen to a fun podcast or good music. It's absolutely wonderful.

Holiday

No Data

No Data

Holiday

I go back and forth between Thanksgiving and Christmas, but I think it's Christmas.

Thanksgiving! I love that we all come together to be thankful, enjoy each others' company and eat!

Song

Smiley Faces by Gnarls Barkley. I love to sing, and between happy-sad theme of this song, the melody and CeeLo's amazing voice, it's at the top of my LONG list of favorites.

Sport to play

Soccer. I'm a goalie, and I currently play between 2-4 times a week on average.

Running is my first love - from 5ks to marathons to ultras. But I also am an avid swimmer and cyclist.

Favourites

Sport to watch

No Data

No Data

Sport to watch

Probably NFL football, although my team is currently terrible! I also like watching professional soccer, and occasionally basketball.

Football!

Traditions

As a child my favortie traditions were probably holiday-related like going to my grandmother's house for Christmas; as adults, Carmen and I have kind of inadvertently started a tradition of going to a beach local to us a couple of times a year.

Things to cook

I enjoy cooking a variety of things, but a couple of the more adventurous favorites are making smoked BBQ or making homemade pasta from scratch.

Chili. It just makes you feel loved, and you can make it a little differently every time. Whatever we have on hand goes in!

TV show

I've got a LONG list, but at the top is probably Better Call Saul. It's such a well-acted show, with nuanced characters.

Movie

This is tough. The Shawshank Redemption, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Sixth Sense and Slingblade were movies that forever changed my perspective of cinema.

TV show

I've got a LONG list, but at the top is probably Better Call Saul. It's such a well-acted show, with nuanced characters.

Letter

INTRO LETTER 

Dear Donor Family,

 

We hope this letter finds you doing well! Thank you so much for taking time to get to know us a little better. We count it a gift and a blessing that you’re considering us as embryo adoptees!

Our names are [His name] and [Her name], and we’re an interracial, Caucasian and Black couple that have been married for eleven years, and we are thankful for each other and truly enjoy life together.

 

We love to travel, and have been to Jamaica, Aruba, France and various U.S. states, and on a yearly basis, we visit nearby mountains and our favorite beach spot. But we don’t stay away for too long, because we love the city and surrounding area that we live in. There’s so much to do here, starting with supporting our local sports teams (that all love to disappoint us) along with the arts, theatre and wonderful places to eat. [His name] is an avid soccer player (he’s a goalie) and [Her name] is a dedicated runner who dabbles in triathlons, and our city gives us lots of opportunities to play in the local vicinity. Our church is just ten minutes away (we both play in the worship band – [His name] plays electric guitar and [Her name] sings), our families are a short drive away, and our extensive friends-who-are-our-family group is here. We love it here.

[His name] had a really interesting childhood. His parents became missionaries in their 30s, so at thirteen years of age, it was decided his family would travel to Mexico for mission work! [His name], as the oldest of eight children, was used to being a little different, but imagine the huge jolt of leaving family and friends, his school, and the comfort of the United States to go to a foreign country! However, [His name] now says he wouldn’t trade this experience for the world. During that time, [His name] would gain familiarity with the Spanish language, and learn about and live in a completely different culture for two years.

 

When the time came for college, [His name] experience was like many teenagers. He attended for a year and a half, but wasn’t quite focused, and his grades started slipping. He dropped out for a while and began working in sign shops, giving him a start in graphic design, a skill [His name] had always been drawn to (pun intended!) Later on, [His name] dad encouraged him to return to school, and he finished his Bachelor’s degree with strong grades, while also working. [His name] began a graphic design career, and worked for a nonprofit for several years, before working for a radio station and a few corporate entities, doing design work. While working for the nonprofit, [His name] met [Her name].

 

[Her name] grew up the eldest daughter of her parents, with just one younger sister. [Her name]  parents were very diligent in their Christian faith and encouraged scholastic achievement. [Her name]  childhood was stable and healthy, with fond memories of doing Jane Fonda exercise videos with her mom, singing in the car to the latest music her dad bought, and spending summers with her grandparents in another state. [Her name]  participated in EVERYTHING - gymnastics, dance, cheerleading, basketball, volleyball and choir. Totally Type A. [Her name]  skipped 8th grade at her small Christian school, finished up high school and was honored to receive a college tuition scholarship, double majoring in English and Spanish. She wrote for her college newspaper, was a Resident Assistant, taught aerobics and sang in two musical groups. Always busy, all the time. Even though she didn’t date her entire college career, [Her name]  managed to win Homecoming Queen of her university (which still shocks her to this day!), due to having acquired such a diverse friend group.

 

[Her name]  finished college, spent a summer singing in a music group, and then started her career, working initially at a publishing company on third shift, and two years later, stumbling into the insurance industry, where she’s worked ever since.

 

In the meantime, [His name] and [Her name] had dating histories that shared many similarities. The similarity was that we didn’t date much! [His name] had a long-time, seven-year relationship with a high school sweetheart that ended painfully, with only one significant relationship afterward. [Her name] dating experience was even quieter, going on her first date when she was 28 years old! [Her name]  was even declined by eHarmony (for real!), and only dated a handful of guys for short periods of time. We both watched everyone get married and have kids, over and over again. But, on one special day, [Her name] had to lead enrollment meetings at a nonprofit company and was surprised to see some friends she knew, and one of those friends, introduced her to a guy named [His name]. It turns out that [Her name] and [His name] had been attending the same church but had never met! Very quickly, we realized that we had so much in common. Despite different cultural backgrounds, we’d had very similar upbringings. We both speak some Spanish, and love sports and music. We’d even attended a few of the same concerts, without knowing each other was there! Our wedding was an AMAZING day, celebrating with 180 of our closest family members and friends! After rejoicing with so many friends and family through our life changes, it was redemptive to have our own special celebration.

 

After getting married, we waited two years before trying to start a family. [Her name] ran her first marathon, and then a few more! When she took a break to try for a baby, she got pregnant within just two months! We were ecstatic. But we lost that pregnancy at 7 ½ weeks. While we were devastated, we were encouraged that we had gotten pregnant quickly, and that we’d get more chances. However, that was not to be.

 

The next few years were full of LIFE. [His name] lost his job unexpectedly and it took ten months to find another one, and an even longer period before he found the right landing spot. The church where we’d met started to fall apart due to some internal issues. [Her name] job began a reorganization, adding a lot of stress to her role, and the “small” home remodel we’d started was in its hardest phase, with workers coming in and out, and dust everywhere. We were fortunate people, but we were exhausted and stressed. No pregnancy occurred during this time, which wasn’t surprising.

 

After a year and a half in a corporate position and another unexpected layoff, [His name] took on several contract jobs while searching for his next full-time role. He realized he enjoyed being his own boss, and felt compelled to become a full-time freelance graphic designer. That decision has been a phenomenal one, and [His name] has thrived in this role, basically having his own business. [Her name] rose in her job, and raced whenever possible, beating numerous personal goals. Our home remodel was complete, and we got our wind back, gaining health in spirit and in mind. We returned to trying on our own for a baby, and spent the next year with no success. This led to IUIs – too many to count, honestly – and finally IVF, which didn’t produce enough eggs to get started. Our tests, labs, and cycles were great. There wasn’t a concrete medical explanation for why we weren’t able to have a child.

 

When our church imploded, we joined a new fellowship, and to our surprise, it was full of people who’d adopted children, including our own pastor and his wife, who’d had numerous miscarriages, had two biological children and adopted their third. One day, another couple in the middle of a traditional adoption (they now have a wonderful baby girl) told us about embryo adoption, and we found out that our friend and her husband’s twins came from decade-old frozen embryos! So, even as our traditional fertility efforts were unsuccessful, we held on to the hope of having children, some way, somehow. As a couple that had to wait much longer than others to find each other, embryo adoption is consistent with our story, that sometimes great things take time.

 

Our hopeful future child would have their own room in our cozy ranch style house, and would instantly have two fun kitty playmates named CeCe and Winston, who are already excited about having someone else to follow around! Our child would enjoy two sets of very excited grandparents who can’t WAIT for their arrival, lots of uncles and aunts, and birthday, Thanksgiving and Christmas celebrations just a short drive away. We tend to make up a lot of random songs in our household, so our child would grow up with music and parents who can invent up a tune out of the most mundane experiences! [Her name] always wanted to write a children’s book, so days would end with reading a Dr. Seuss story, The Chronicles of Narnia, or [Her name] storytelling an idea at bedtime. Weekends would be spent with cheering daddy on while he plays soccer and kicking the ball afterward, talking a walk with mommy or playing, with Sundays attending church and running around the children’s building, meeting new friends. Our hope is to encourage learning, stay attuned to our child’s interests, and nurture their talents. We want to gently lead this child and pray for them as they figure out the world, little by little.

 

Both of us work as telecommuters, which has been great. If we are blessed with a child, it is our intention that [His name] will continue working and [Her name] will leave her sales job and stay home with our little one for at least a year, and hopefully for much longer after that. We’ve made financial accommodations in advance to allow for this, and [Her name] is also looking into alternate work options (like voiceover work) that can be done on a freelance basis, that sync well with raising a child. We don’t think that current [Her name] job is the right fit for parenting, so we have a plan to address that. We’ve waited so long to be parents, and we want to give parenting the best energy that we can.

 

So, now we’re here, with open arms, hoping and praying for the right opportunity for embryo adoption. We want to give the right donor parents peace, knowing that their embryos will have great parents that will love them with all their hearts. We are open to all sorts of adoptions, so know that, if you feel drawn to us, we will do all we can to accommodate all that is needed to make it all work out beautifully. Thank you so much for your consideration.

 

Sincerely,

[His name] [Her name]

REFERENCE LETTER 1

To Whom It May Concern,

It is with great pleasure that I write this letter to recommend [His name] and [Her name] for consideration in their pursuit of embryo adoption. As their pastor at the church they attend, I've had the privilege of witnessing their character, dedication, and involvement within our community over the past three years.

[His name] and [Her name] have been an integral part of our worship and production team, displaying exemplary leadership qualities and a consistently positive and upbeat demeanor. In their interactions with others, they exhibit a remarkable ability to relate well, foster healthy relationships, and lead with enthusiasm and empathy.

From what I have observed, their emotional, mental, and physical health appears to be robust. [His name] and [Her name] positivity and leadership skills extend to their relationships, showcasing a loving and supportive dynamic. Their commitment to physical health, evident through their dedication to exercise, including regular running, reflects their conscientious approach to overall well-being.

One of their significant strengths lies in their extensive relational network, which would undoubtedly serve as a valuable support system in providing a nurturing environment for an adopted child. Moreover, our church community actively engages in the adoption and foster care realm, offering ample resources and assistance that [His name] and [Her name] would readily access.

Regarding their financial stability, I'm unable to provide direct insight. However, based on my interactions and observations, there have been no indications of financial concerns communicated by [His name] and [Her name].

While [His name] and [Her name] do not have children at present, their marriage appears to be built on a strong foundation, bolstered by a supportive network. As their pastor, I have not identified any specific areas of concern in their relationship or their ability to provide a loving and caring environment for a child.

In summary, based on my knowledge and experience with [His name] and [Her name], I wholeheartedly endorse their pursuit of adoption. They possess the qualities, support, and enthusiasm necessary to embrace the responsibilities of parenthood with love, commitment, and grace.

Please feel free to contact me if you require any further information.

Sincerely,


REFERENCE LETTER 2

December 4, 2023

 


 

Reference for [His name] and [Her name]

 

We are happy to provide a reference for our son [His name] and his wife [Her name]. We have been praying for quite some time that they could become parents, and we have never had any reservations about them being fit parents. They are both committed Christians and have stable friendships.

 

Obviously we have known [His name] since his birth almost 46 years ago. We have known [Her name] for about thirteen years, eleven of those years as her in-laws. She is a wonderful wife for [His name] and a wonderful daughter-in-law!

 

[His name] and [Her name] are emotionally and mentally stable. They are both quite healthy, and in fact [Her name] is an accomplished athlete with distance running and related competitions. We have total confidence that they could provide a stable environment and a Christian home for a child (or children).

 

[Her name] has been employed with United Healthcare for quite some time, and has been recognized as an outstanding employee by the company. They even sent them on a trip to Europe for that. [His name] is a free-lance graphic designer. Since they both have an income their finances are certainly adequate to provide for a growing family. They have little debt, if any.

 

Their marriage has been good for the whole eleven years they have been married. Since they have not had children we can’t comment directly on their parenting abilities, but we have no reason to question that. Both were the first children of their family, with [Her name] having one younger sister and [His name] having seven younger siblings. Being the firstborn seems to give people a bit of perspective on children, or at least that has been our observation. They relate well with their nieces and nephews.

 

Blessings,


REFERENCE LETTER 3

I am pleased to serve as a reference for my friends, [His name] and [Her name].

As an aside, I offered to serve as a reference several years ago when they began their journey to add to their family. I was adopted when I was three months old and feel I have a perspective about couples who are seeking to adopt that many people don’t have. I remember coming home from school one day, in tears because I’d been teased about being adopted. My mother told me to tell those children that I was picked out specially, while their parents had to take what they got.. LOL. I’ve never forgotten it and think that adoption is something really special.

 

[His name] and [Her name] are both my friends. I met [Her name] many years ago at a gym we both frequented when we found ourselves chatting as we walked on our individual treadmills. We’ve often reflected that we are the most unlikely of friends – she’s black, I’m white. I’m almost exactly 20 years older than she is – she’s quite athletic and I’m not – but those treadmills proved providential as a very special bond formed then and has lasted all these years. [Her name] remains one of a handful of what I consider very close friends. She’s the executor of my estate and trusted confidant. We go on at least one girl’s trip a year and spend time hiking, talking, journaling and solving all the problems of the world while we take time to hear from the Lord about what purpose He might have for our lives. Then, almost 15 years ago, [His name] was added to my friend list when he and [Her name] started dating and eventually marrying. While I don’t know [His name] nearly a well as I do [Her name], I consider him a friend and wouldn’t hesitate to reach out to him in a crisis. Plus, [His name] shares our agonizing love of our local football team, and the four of us gather annually to see, usually, our team lose in the final minutes of a heart-stopping game.

 

I was the Chief Operating Officer of an asset management firm before retiring seven years ago. One of the topics of our girls’ weekends is always finances. [Her name] has been financially rewarded for the outstanding work she has done in the insurance field. She has taken her gifts and used them well. She moved from a support role to a much more lucrative sales role. Along the way, she has been a fabulous steward of her resources. Not one for ostentatious spending, she also doesn’t go without nice things (and I’m sure her child/children will benefit from this thinking.) She is frugal but also extremely generous. I believe her employment is quite stable, however, even if this job went away for one reason or another, finding a replacement would not be difficult and, in the meantime, there would not be financial hardship. In recent years, [His name] has started his own business using his graphic design skills. It has grown to provide a very lucrative income as well. In fact, if either job were lost due to circumstances beyond their control, they could easily become a one-income family and life very comfortably.

 

For [His name] and [Her name], they have reached a season of life where they are able to prioritize the raising of a child/children, and whatever person joins their home is going to be abundantly blessed. I believe they will use a proper blend of grace and rules to allow their child/children to grow into responsible, loving, generous, kind adults who give back and raise their own families of responsible, loving, generous, kind children. It takes work to raise children well. I believe that [His name] and [Her name] are ready (if one ever can be ready to be responsible for shaping the future of another human being) and excited to being the journey of being parents. Their marriage is strong, they both have good sense when it comes to life balance, they share duties well, and will support one another along the way. I was blessed when my parents chose me. I believe that whatever child/children [His name] and [Her name] are blessed to raise will feel the same.
