John and Kelly

Dear Birth Family,

We are John & Kelly and we truly thank you for taking the time to read our letter. It's very difficult to know how to write a letter like this. To be honest, we want to say everything perfectly, we want to offer you comfort and we want you to like us. At the same time, we realize that all these goals cannot be met in a single letter. We do not know you or what you are going through but we would love for you to want to get to know us better.

Since our wedding in 2006, we have prayed and hoped for a life filled with children and our journey has brought us to the gift of adoption. We are excited to share all of our love and happiness with a child that is brought into our lives and consider it the highest gift we could ask for.

John is my best friend and the most amazing person I know. The love he shows me is unconditional and he makes me feel special day-after-day. John is an honorable man with an unending sense of calm and patience about him. He is open-minded and gets along with everyone he meets. I admire his drive, compassion and fun-loving personality.

John is committed to his job and is a very hard worker. I love how much his family and friends are the highest priority to him.  His laid back, fun-loving personality makes him cared for by many. John will be a great dad! In many ways he is still a kid at heart. John has always aspired to take our children on vacations and teach them how to play sports and much more. I love hearing about all his plans to make his family full of life and love.

Kelly is not only the greatest woman I know, she is also my incredible loving wife, and my best friend. She is one of the kindest and most caring people I know. Kelly is very empathetic, always taking into account the thoughts and feelings of those around her. She has a wonderful way of making everyone feel very cared for and important in her life.

Kelly is a dedicated first grade teacher who loves working with children and takes pride and joy in helping them learn and grow. I love seeing the happiness children bring to her, and know that this joy will grow even greater when we have a child of our own. She has always had a strong desire to have children and to provide them with a life experience full of love and happiness. I can’t think of anyone who would be a better mother than Kelly.

Our close-knit family is completely supportive of our decision to adopt. We both grew up in loving families. Kelly has two sisters and three brothers, and John has one sister. We have three nieces, five nephews, four grandparents, one great-grandma, and aunts and uncles who are ready to shower a child with their unconditional love. They are very excited for us to start this venture of raising a family together and cannot wait to include a new member into a family filled with deep care and love.

There is nothing that would mean more to us than being chosen by you to raise and care for your child. Our journey to become parents has been challenging at times, but we know it has helped to give us the patience and understanding it takes to be great parents. John and I would be honored to make your child part of our love and our lives. We will love, cherish, and provide a well-rounded positive life for your child. We are open to letters, phone calls, pictures, and visits with you and your family.

Thank you for considering us as part of your adoption plan. We know this would be a difficult decision to make and we cannot thank you enough for taking the time to listen to our story.

Best Wishes,

John & Kelly
