Dear Birth Mother,
Thank you so much for considering us. It takes an incredibly brave and big-hearted individual to choose the adoption path. We already have a great deal of respect and admiration for you. If given the opportunity, we would love to get to know you better, and talk more about the kind of loving, supportive, and remarkable family this child will be joining.
We are first-time parents and long-time lovers of life. We have figured out who we are, what we want from life, established ourselves financially and socially, and now feel qualified and ready to take that next step in our life together– raising a child. We have been together for nine years, and happily married for the past 4. We first met while living and working in San Diego, California. A few years after we began dating, Jack jumped on an exciting career opportunity in San Francisco where we have lived ever since. Currently we live in a great three bedroom house in a safe, quiet, tucked away neighborhood in San Francisco. Our house is actually just a couple blocks from one of the best grammar schools in San Francisco, so it makes an ideal neighborhood for raising kids.
We both have carved out rewarding careers in the technology field. Jack works for a fast-growing social media company, and Brooke works for a large software company. We are both hard workers and passionate about what we do, but fortunately have great jobs that respect the work-life balance, and allow for flexible schedules that enable us to work from home often, and take plenty of time off. While we like our jobs, our child will be our top priority and we both have future plans to work part-time in order to really nurture the child and foster his/her curiosity and creativity.
Adoption is not something new to either of our families. Jack is very close with his younger brother, who was also adopted. Also, Brooke has always been close with her adopted cousin who lives in nearby San Jose, and both of her aunts, who were also adopted. With adoption being a part of our family, starting our own family through adoption was a natural fit and a decision we both came to independently. We love our adopted family members and very grateful for them all.
Family is very important to us. Fortunately, we live a short-distance to several family members, who we visit often. Recently, Jack’s Mom and Step Dad retired, and moved within driving distance of us. They are absolutely thrilled about becoming grandparents, and being very involved with our child’s life.
Adoption is a special commitment that we feel we are well prepared for and definitely excited about. We are compassionate to your situation and hope that our story and experience is of some consolation as you try to make the difficult decision on who will parent your child. We are very open people and willing to share more when the time is right. To learn more about us, please reach out to Little Angel Adoptions at 888-281-8948.
Hugs and all the best,
Brooke and Jack
