Dear Expecting Parents,
We are so grateful and happy to have you on our website, learning more about us and our family! With adoption already a part of our family, we know it’s complicated and can be very hard emotionally. As we have never been on your side of this situation, we can only imagine how hard it must be to make the decisions that are the best for you and your child’s future. We want you to know we love you unconditionally and are here for you no matter where life’s path takes you. We thank you for taking the time to learn about us and for giving us this opportunity to introduce ourselves!
Adoption holds a special place in our home as Joe was adopted at birth. Since we are not your “traditional” family, our options are limited when it comes to having children. After thinking long and hard about our options, we have made the decision that adoption is the answer for us. We feel we are more than ready to become parents and we could not be happier to pursue this future. We have attended several classes with Utah Foster Care and the Utah Adoption Specialists to insure we are ready as we move forward.
In our home, we want our children to know they are loved and are free to be themselves. We want them to have an imagination and a love for life. We want to provide for their every need, help them grow, and learn to reach for the stars. As they say, it takes a village to raise a child, we have one of the best villages we could have ever asked or hoped for. We have a very large and diverse support group of family and friends who are cheering us on as we have prepared for this next step in our life. We know we can offer a lot, whether that be hugs and band aids or being cheerleaders and teachers. We are both very driven and want to provide only the best that we can for our family.
We have family from Hawaii to Florida and many places in-between, who are just as excited as we are to have a new addition in our family. We can’t wait to travel and explore the places we love. We want to build memories and to teach them all about the world around us. Jake is excited to pull out his telescope and show our kids the universe we live in. He is also excited to sit down at bedtime and read a book with them. Joe is excited to run with our kids and play in the dirt! He is excited to explore the mountains and all the animals that live there, along with the ones in our own backyard.
Knowing first-hand how hard closed adoptions can be, we are pursuing an open adoption. We know how important it is for our kids to know who they are and where they came from. We want you to watch them grow along with us and be a part of our village. We promise you open and honest communication from the start. We promise we will always provide for our family and that your child will never go without. We are ready for the sleepless nights, the diaper blow outs, and all the fits and tears. We are also ready and excited for the love, laughter, and happiness, that being parents will bring us.
Thank you for taking the time to get to know us, and please don’t hesitate to reach out
if you want to know more!
With All Our Love,
Jake and Joe
