Kathy and Jim
We admire your courage and strength in what must be a very difficult time.
We know that you are considering an adoption plan because you want
what is best for your child. We
are extremely grateful to you as you read our letter and consider us as
adoptive parents. We hope that you find comfort and peace in knowing that,
should you select us, your child will be told how much you love him or
We, Kathy and Jim, have been through 3 years of infertility treatments;
doctors advise us that we will not be able to conceive a child. However,
we look forward to being parents someday, when a birthmother will entrust
her precious gift to us. It is a huge responsibility to raise a child and
we would feel honored and grateful for this blessing.
Adoption has ALREADY enriched our lives, as we have two adopted
nieces Bethany (6) and Mia (3). This
has been a great experience for our family and we feel that adoption is a
very natural and comfortable way for us to make a family.
We feel fortunate to have flexible careers so that one of us can be at
home with our child at all times. Kathy
works as a manager for a very family oriented company that provides the
non-food items sold in grocery stores (everything from toys to lawn
furniture). She will be able
to take maternity leave and work part-time from home after a child arrives
in our family. Jim has a
background as a machinist and home remodeler and will be able to be at
home full-time, as well. We
are financially secure and have already begun a savings account so that
your child can easily attend college.
After mutual friends introduced us, I was immediately attracted to Jimís
great sense of humor and caring way towards others. Jim says it was my warm and loving manner that made him fall
in love with me. We dated for
3 years, often enjoying weekends at Jimís vacation home. Jim romantically proposed on one knee while we were at the
beach and the sun was setting.
We are very happily married and love each other very much. It has always been important to us to have a family
because we are very close to our families.
It is so much fun when we get together with all our sisters,
brothers-in-law, nieces and nephews for birthdays, barbecues and holidays. We have a large extended family, as well, and often cousins
join us for these events. Easter
has become one of our favorite holidays because our whole family comes to
our house for dinner and we host an Easter egg hunt for the children.
Everyone is eager for us to welcome a child into our loving family.
We feel blessed to be surrounded by so much love.
When blessed to parent, we look forward to raising a child with respect
and teaching him or her to respect others as well. We believe in honesty. We
look forward to warm times at our community church and helping our child
to feel secure and loved.
Jimís dad loves children and is happy to be a doting grandfather, once
again. Since the loss of my parents and Jimís mother, we cherish life
and hold special memories in our hearts.
Our family which includes five sisters and their families all live
within 45 minutes of our home. Our
child will have the love and attention of many aunts, uncles, cousins and
a particularly devoted grandfather as well.
Last year, Jim and I moved into the house that my father built 40 years
ago. The house is on a quiet
street in a close community with lots of children.
There is an excellent school in our area. We have a playground and ball field within walking distance
and it is nice to hear the voices of children laughing and playing.
We have renovated our older home to feel new and bright.
The babyís nursery is cheerful and awaiting the arrival of our
Our dog ďBlueĒ is a one year old, American Bulldog that loves
children; heís named Blue for his one blue eye. He has brought laughter
and joy to our lives. One of our favorite things to do is take Blue for a
walk. Whenever he sees
children playing, he immediately stops, sits and waits for them to come
over or ask for him to join them. We
canít wait to watch him tag along happily with our child.
Growing up, Kathy and I spent vacations with our families at the beach.
We hope to share joyful times with our child at our vacation home.
Our families often come to visit and our nieces and nephews especially
love the beach and
Thank you for considering us. It
is our most heartfelt desire to have a child, but without you this would
not be possible. We are eager
to hear your hopes and dreams for your child.
If chosen, we would love and nurture your child, as you would want
us to. We would love the
opportunity to speak with or meet you and offer our support. We will be
happy to send letter updates and photos regularly to keep you informed of
how your child is doing.
Thank you for your consideration. If you would like to learn more about us or speak with us,
With warm thoughts and wishes.
