John and Kelly

John and Kelly

Dear Birth Family,

Thank you for taking some time getting to know us. We are John and Kelly, and have been married for six years. From the start, we knew we wanted to have children, however have not been blessed with the opportunity to conceive a child on our own. We realized our ultimate goal is to have a baby and to expand our family. It dawned on us that we didn’t have to keep going through medical treatments and tests to achieve the end result. Adoption seemed like a natural fit for us, and we know that adopting a child will fulfill our dreams of building a family.

We met on a blind date that was set up by John’s cousin. Neither of us were very interested in meeting this way so it took a while to make it happen. Once we finally met we instantly hit it off and thought we should have done it sooner.

Kelly is a very caring, compassionate, and understanding person who is sympathetic and open to others opinions and choices. She is a first grade teacher who loves children, and enjoys working with them to help them grow. Kelly comes from a large family of three brothers and two sisters who are all excited to have a new niece or nephew. When not teaching she enjoys staying active by spending time outdoors whether it be jogging, walking, swimming, going for bike rides, working in the yard or just playing with our nieces and nephews. She loves art and enjoys attending different venues from art galleries, to arts festivals, to musical productions and concerts.

John is very patient, compassionate, open minded, hard working, and outgoing. He is a Product Sales Manager for a large corporation that specializes in motion and control. His company recognizes that family time is very important and allows him a flexible schedule. John has one sister and a large extended family that look forward to a new addition to the family. He is very active with many hobbies and interests including golfing, running, hunting, fishing, skiing and simply spending time outdoors.

We feel every child should have the opportunity to grow up in a loving, caring, supportive, and stable family; A family that promotes good values, education, and serves as a foundation for helping a child to achieve his/her hopes and dreams. We are very excited about the opportunity to provide this for a child.

We hope you will take the opportunity to look at our profile and photo album as it will give you a little glimpse into who we are as individuals and as a married couple. We are excited to share our hobbies and interests with a child and look forward to family outings to the zoo, parks, farmers markets, apple orchards, museums, going on walks, spending time at the pool, the lake, and taking future family vacations. We have loving parents, siblings, and nieces and nephews who too are excited to welcome a child into our family.

Thank you for taking the time to read this letter as you make plans for your baby’s future. We look forward to meeting and getting to know one another better.
