Dear Birth Mother,
Wow. Thank you for considering placing your child for adoption. I can't imagine the emotions that have gone into taking this step. We are so happy that you have chosen adoption as an option for your child and would be truly honored to be considered by you as potential adoptive parents.
We would like to tell you a little bit about ourselves. Nick was born in Pennsylvania and LaBecca was born in Texas, where we currently live. We met while in college and dated for about two and half years before getting engaged. We married a year later, in 2008 and will celebrate 13 years of marriage this summer.
We do not have any children (yet!), but have seven nieces and nephews that we adore and spend as much time with as we can. We have chosen adoption after much consideration and discussion because we both desperately want children and struggled with fertility issues. We have not been told that we are completely unable to have children naturally, but after several rounds of fertility treatments, we felt that adoption was better suited for us. We don't completely grasp the loss that families experience through miscarriage; however, since we were unable to conceive, we feel that we understand loss in this way, and appreciate the fact that loss is a part of your journey as well. Adoption is already a part of our lives, because Nick's parents adopted 4 of our nieces and nephews several years ago and it was a great decision.
Our families both live in the same town as we do and are tremendously supportive of our journey to adoption and are thrilled with our decision.
We are both active people who enjoy being outside, watching our nieces and nephews play sports, hiking, going to our ranch, swimming and playing with our dogs. Most weekends in the summer you'll find us in our pool with neighbors, family and friends. Nick works from home as a data analyst, auditing medical claims and LaBecca is an attorney, focusing on real estate, oil and gas, estate planning and probate. We both have steady, productive careers and feel that we are financially, emotionally and spiritually able to care for a child.
We are committed to an open relationship with the birth mom that choses us, but will respect the level of openness and communication that you are comfortable us.
We recognize the magnitude of the decisions you have to make and pray that you make decisions that you are confident in and that will be best for both you and your child.
Nick and LaBecca
