Dear Expectant Mother,
Hello from New Jersey! First and foremost, we cannot begin to understand the difficulty of the decision you are making. We truly acknowledge your courage and bravery. We decided that adoption was the best way to expand our family, after necessary medications left us unable to conceive naturally. We have been talking about becoming parents since our engagement, and are so excited to be doing so through the gift of adoption. We cannot wait to begin this new adventure and become parents! We thank you for taking the time to learn a little about us and hope to get an opportunity to learn about you too.
We met in April of 2017, when we attended the same lunch fellowship after church. After a year of friendship, we began dating. From our first date, if was clear that it was the real thing. Everything matched up, even our sarcastic sense of humor. We dated for two years and got married on a snowy Saturday in January 2020. Our marriage has been full of laughs, excitement, growth and, most importantly, love. We enjoy traveling, trying new restaurants, attending shows and sporting events and spending quality time with friends and family.
We live in a family-friendly neighborhood in Bergen County, New Jersey. There is always something to do here, as we are only a few miles from New York City and about an hour drive from either mountains, lakes or beaches. Our home is located in walking distance of the center of town as well as playgrounds and a large park. Bergen County is known for their excellent schools, and providing ample opportunities for people of any age. Activities like food truck festivals, fairs, ice skating and music lessons can all be found nearby.
One of our favorite things about living in New Jersey is getting to experience all four seasons. The snow in the winter, the cherry blossoms blooming in the spring, the beaches in the summer and the colorful leaves in the fall. We like to enjoy what each season brings.
Our faith and hope in Jesus Christ is our number one motivator for wanting to adopt. In Ephesians 1:4-5 it says, “just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will”. We do not take adoption lightly or view it as shameful. Adoption is an ultimate act of selflessness, and we thank you again for considering us to raise your beautiful child. We would love to share more with you and discuss our commitment to having an open adoption. May God richly bless you in this journey.
