Introduction

Dear Expectant Parent(s),

Hello, we are Eddy and Corey! Thank you for choosing to read to our story and learn more about us as prospective parents.

We met during college in 2011 through an online dating website. While we both went to the same school, we had not seen each other on campus until after meeting online. We quickly began chatting and recognized that both of us were looking for something more than a casual college fling. After meeting at an on-campus café, we began dating.

After graduation and securing full-time work, we decided to rent our first apartment together. We learned and grew as a couple and eventually got engaged on Christmas Eve in 2017, and were later married in the fall of 2019. We both always knew we wanted a more traditional family, despite being a same-sex couple, so after buying our home in 2020, we decided it would soon be time to pursue our goal of starting a family. Adoption just made sense to us and we are excited to welcome a child into our loving environment through adoption.

About Eddy

Throughout school, I was heavily involved in extracurricular activities like soccer, drama club, and yearbook committee. During college, I decided to utilize my aptitude for calculus and pursue a degree in mathematics. My analytical nature has helped me develop a career in the insurance industry.

I thrive on observing and understanding. It’s important to me to be able to see situations from other perspectives and provide meaningful input. I often lend an ear to those important to me, either as a soundboard or when advice is needed. Being a respected confidante is a position I look forward to earning as a parent.

I enjoy spending quality time with the ones I love. I’m not as interested in what we’re doing, as I am in who we’re doing it with. Whether it’s a Friday game night or spending a Sunday morning at a friend’s son’s hockey game, the who trumps the what every time.

About Corey

Growing up, I always took pride in my schoolwork and was fascinated by learning new things. In college, I decided to study psychology as I was interested in human thought and behavior. Today, I use those skills in a leadership position at a biotech company. I love being able to help develop and guide people, and can’t wait to use those skills as a parent. I am often the person others come to for help and advice and enjoy offering my thoughts and guidance.

I definitely love to laugh and make others laugh. A sense of humor is so important to me and I look forward to sharing this humor with a child. I’m often just saying funny things and feeding off of others’ humor during conversations, or just overall being “silly.” I think having fun is just as important as working hard!

I enjoy outings to theme parks – one highlight was introducing a friend’s son to his first roller coaster – a joy I hope to experience as a parent someday! I also like Disney movies and musicals and look forward to introducing the classics to a child someday.

Our Home

We fell in love with our home the moment we walked in during the showing. Corey’s favorite room is our beautiful spacious open kitchen, while Eddy definitely prefers our cozy living room that perfectly fits the sectional! We both love winding down the evenings together in the living room, playing video games, or catching up on our favorite shows after a long day. Our fenced-in backyard is the perfect spot to run around and play fetch with our dog, and it will be a blast to include a child in these activities.

Our neighborhood is the perfect location, with a diverse range of families and couples, close to the downtown area of our small New England city but seemingly tucked away in its own suburb. Our dog surely loves his walks and is always looking out for his other dog friends out and about! It’s a great balance of city and suburb, as it is quiet and private enough that you don’t feel crowded. We are excited to raise a family in such a perfect neighborhood.

One of the best things about our city is that it has the same amenities you would find in a large city but in a smaller package! In the summertime, we look forward to taking the family to a minor league baseball game and enjoying dining outdoors at one of the many local restaurants. The latest blockbuster is always playing right nearby at the cinema, and we can even catch a Broadway show from time to time when they are touring our local theater!

Our Family

We both grew up with fun family traditions. Corey’s family had big Christmas Eve parties and fun summer barbeques with aunts, uncles, and cousins. Eddy has a large extended family, which always meant big gatherings for birthdays and holidays! We were raised with important values from our parents and are looking forward to instilling these values in the next generation.

Our parents are all eager to become grandparents and are excited for us on our adoption journey. While Corey’s parents are a bit further away, they are still close enough to drive over for gatherings, birthdays, and holidays. Eddy’s family is nearby and will be able to enjoy time spent with our family often. We also have very close friends whom we consider family, who often join us for holiday gatherings and frequent outings.

Overall, we have a very supportive network of friends and family who can’t wait to see our family grow and be a part of that experience. We also cannot wait to share all of the family milestones with the important people in our lives.

Traditions + Hobbies + Interests

We have certain traditions that we look forward to building as a family. We look forward to big summer barbeques with our closest friends and family with plenty of food. The autumn brings hiking at the many nearby trails in New England, backyard fires (with s’mores of course!), and Halloween fun. We’re excited to start a trick-or-treat tradition, as well! As the year draws to a close, we enjoy the holiday season. We especially love all of the colorful holiday lights and are looking forward to driving around looking for the best lighting displays to share with a child.

We enjoy playing video games – a favorite when we’re with our friend’s son is Mario Party; he’s getting pretty good! We can definitely see a lot of fun being had around the living room TV as we play our favorite games as a family. We also enjoy traditional game nights with card and board games. Eddy is ready to start teaching all of the complex rules to a child, who will definitely end up winning often after learning from the best! Corey is equally excited to share his favorite Disney movies, and possibly engage in a sing-a-long.

One of our favorite things to do together is travel! Exploring new places is a lot of fun and a great learning experience about other regions and cultures. We can’t wait to share this as a family. A few highlights from past travels were visits to Tokyo, Paris, and the state of California. We also enjoy the Disney theme parks and look forward to sharing the magic with a child in the future.

Thank You

Thank you for taking the time to review our book, and for considering an adoption plan for this baby. We’ve always known we wanted to raise a child, and we talk about our future often, and about sharing it with a child. We just know we are meant to be parents and cannot wait to share our love as a family.

If we are fortunate enough to be chosen as adoptive parents, we promise the baby will be met with nothing but the most supportive, loving, and caring environment. They will be treated to great life lessons and amazing experiences which will help them grow into their best self. They will have the opportunity to receive a good education, travel to different places, and be surrounded by love.

We look forward to being able to keep you informed of how they are doing and working with you on a level of openness that you are comfortable with. We will take pride in ensuring the child understands the amazing, loving choice their birth parents made for them so that they could have a life with our family.

We write with both excitement and anticipation for the day that we finally become parents. We hope and wish for the absolute best for you as you work out the best decision for you and your baby.

Sincerely,

Corey & Eddy
