First and foremost, thank you for taking the time to read this letter. We are truly grateful that you’ve chosen to consider us as adoptive parents, and we are excited at the prospect of providing a loving home to your child.
This isn’t an everyday note. It is one of the most important letters we will write. So, where do you start? How can we truly articulate just how much admiration we have for you? Because we do. With every fiber of our being we are impressed by the level of courage and strength you have shown. This is not an easy decision. So please know its enormity is something that will stay with us and not be forgotten. And in making this decision, we understand you need to really get to know who we are. So here goes…
We, Todd and Jeanne, are a loving couple who’ve been together for over 12 years. We started dating in 2008 and were married in 2017. Throughout our relationship, adoption has always been top of mind and the way we knew we would start our family. So, please know when the day came to start this process, we were excited not because it was our plan B, but because it was our plan A. Adoption always has been our plan A.
We hope that helps you appreciate our desire to adopt, but we understand you’re here to learn more about who we are as individuals and as a couple, starting with that classic question – how did you meet? The short answer is through a friend.
