Thank you for reading our letter as you consider an adoption plan for your child. Your decision takes incredible courage, strength and love and we truly respect and admire you for it. We send our best wishes and prayers that everything will work out right for you.
Unfortunately, despite our best efforts with 4 years of infertility treatments, we were unable to have children. During this difficult time, we have realized that it didn't matter how children come into our life. What was important was that we were able to share our love, and be loved, by our children. Adoption gave us the chance to see our dreams come true right before our eyes. Two and a half years ago we became a family when we adopted our daughter Natalie at birth. We enjoyed getting to know her birthmother before Natalie's birth and continue to keep in touch through letters and photos. We feel blessed to have had the opportunity to become a family. And we know that we have the same dream and love in our hearts for another child. Our experience with Natalie has confirmed our belief about how much love we have to give to our children and how much we want another child to be part of our lives
Loving, teaching and raising Natalie has been our greatest joy. Each new stage has been more fun and rewarding than the last. We always knew that being parents would be wonderful, but we had no idea how wonderful! Natalie is a very happy, energetic and inquisitive two and a half year old. She is always on the move, whether she is in the playroom or outside on the swing set or sandbox; she is happiest when she is moving! Natalie is very friendly and outgoing and has met lots of friends through our gym class, swimming class and playgroups. She has many friends with new babies in their families; she loves making the babies laugh and is always very affectionate and gentle towards them. Natalie will be a great big sister and friend.
I achieved my Bachelor's Degree in Management and had been working at a large, Boston-based company for ten years before Natalie came into our lives. I love being a full-time mom, I feel grateful to have this opportunity to be home with Natalie and our next child. We are very active and are always finding new, fun things to do. We love taking bike rides to a nearby farm and feeding the animals. Natalie and I also do lots of arts and crafts to surprise Daddy with; anything so we can get messy! We also love our trips to the park, the bookstore and the children's museum in Boston.
I work for at a large internet-working company. I have a rewarding and demanding job but value the balance between work and my family. The best part of my day, no matter how tough, is when Natalie calls me and tells me how her day is going. I am also fortunate to have a flexible schedule so I can work from home or play "hookey" from work to spend more time with Kim and Natalie when necessary. Over the past five years I have worked very hard, with Kim's and Natalie's support, to attain my career goals which has created financial security and has enabled us to support our family goals.
We have so much fun together and have enjoyed many family day trips
and vacations. We went to Disney World this fall with friends. We all
had an unbelievable and "magical" time! Natalie talks about
going back almost every day. We are looking forward to returning. We
enjoyed our summer vacation last year in Cape Cod, Massachusetts on
the beach. We also love long weekends and day trips to attractions in
the mountains of New Hampshire.
We own a four-bedroom home on an acre of land nestled on a country road. Most of our neighbors have young children and we feel fortunate to be part of such a wonderful and safe neighborhood. There is a state forest at the end of our street where we enjoy taking walks and exploring the trails. Nearby is a farm with fruit orchards where we enjoy festivals and pick whatever is in season. There is always something fun going on in the town common such as barbeques, 4th of July Fireworks, and concerts.
Education and Values
Our families raised us with Christian values. Our faith in God and love for one another gave us the strength we needed during our struggle with infertility as well as the challenges we may face in parenthood. We know that our devotion to each other and our love for our children will make us the best parents possible.
We take very seriously the awesome responsibility of parenthood. We can promise to love and cherish the child that you place in our arms.
Thank you for reading our letter and considering us. We look forward to learning about you and your dreams for your child. If you would like to learn more about us, please contact Full Circle Adoptions, toll free 1-888-452-3678. We wish you the very best.
