Adoptive family

Dear Birth Family,

We are so excited that you are taking the time to get to know us and considering us as adoptive parents for your baby. Having helped friends of ours through an adoption as birthparents, we fully respect the incredibly brave decision you are making to give your baby the best home and life possible. Please know that whatever you choose we hope that you find the family that you are searching for so that your baby may have everything you have dreamed for them and more. If that is us, we will welcome you and your baby with open hearts and open arms.

Loving family for your child

Our story together began when we were 15 and 16 years old. We became very close friends over a year or so and later decided to give the whole dating thing a shot. We would spend the next 9 years growing up together, supporting each other through life and celebrating each other’s successes to finally getting engaged on Amanda’s favorite holiday, the 4th of July. This year we celebrated our 10-year wedding anniversary. We have built a life together based on trust, compassion, love, respect, laughter and fun and we cannot wait to share that with a child.

We live in Delaware, Ohio, just north of Columbus. We absolutely love all of the things our small town has to offer families. We are surrounded by wonderful schools, parks, restaurants, shops, festivals, and most of our family too! We both really love to travel. When we got married we decided it was our goal to see every single state in the US. Each year around our wedding anniversary we plan a 10-day road trip around one or two states. We spend time picking out the places we want to see in each state based on what looks fun, relaxing, interesting, exciting and educational and we take off! We cannot wait to finish exploring the United States with a little one in toe. During our day-to-day life we enjoy spending time with each other, cooking dinner together, taking our pups for walks, relaxing at the pool, kayaking, playing cards and board games, and catching up on the latest shows or enjoying time spent with our family and friends.

If you feel that we are the best fit to raise your child, we promise to love them unconditionally. We promise they will be cherished every moment of every day, protected through life’s storms, and celebrated through all of their successes by us and our friends and family. We also promise to welcome you and your baby into our family and we will ensure that your child knows the sacrifice that you made, the courage you have and your unconditional love for them. We cannot wait to meet you and to learn more about your story.

With Love,
Amanda and Jeff
