Mandy, Brad & Barrett
We appreciate the time you are giving us to read this letter and get to know us just a little bit better. There is no way of knowing or even relating to the thoughts floating around in your head or the emotions swirling around in your heart as you make an adoption plan for your baby. Know that no matter where this journey takes you you are choosing to give the best to this little life and that is the biggest, most loving gift anyone can offer.
We aren’t really sure how to write this letter. We have never met you. But, at the same time we are hopeful in someway through these few paragraphs we can tell you enough to want to know us more. Where do we start?
Here goes, We have known each other for over 25 years, we have been married for 10 years. We are best friends and love our simple life. Brad has worked hard over the years to pay our home off completely which has allowed us more financial freedom to engage in the things we love in life. We love to travel, we love exploring new towns, areas or simply finding a winding mountain road that we have never been on before and letting it take us to new places.
We have a beautiful 3 year old son who came to us through Embryo adoption and he lights up our world. He got a new puppy recently for his 3rd birthday and she has provided so much joy to him and our family as a whole! We love playing in the yard with him, going for bike rides around town, camping in the summer and taking trips to see family. We knew very soon after our son was born that our family wasn’t complete. We really wanted him to travel his life journey with a forever friend through a brother or a sister. So our path has led us here.
We want to provide an unconditional love to our child and to a new child. We want to create a strong family bond. We desire to be a place where they can always count on support, love, acceptance, a sense of history and beautiful memories. We want to teach them to be loving people, to show love to all and be strong enough emotionally, and physically to walk their journey with confidence and pride in who they are and where they came from.
We hope as you make this plan that you will consider us as a possible adoptive family for your child. No matter where this journey leads you and no matter who it leads you to we pray peace, strength, confidence and comfort over you now and always.
Thank you so much,
Mandy and Brad
