Emily & Robert
RACE OF CHILD INTERESTED IN ADOPTING:
Dear Loving Mother,
We dreamed of becoming parents for a long time, and if you choose us, your child will know from day one how courageous and loving your decision was and how grateful we are to you for making our dreams come true. We look forward to nurturing your child’s hopes and dreams and providing a loving and stable source of support. We look forward to enjoying all New England has to offer us as a family, from fall apple picking and hayrides to winter skiing and summers at the beach. We have two close-knit families that can’t wait to welcome your child.
We’re strong believers in the transformative power of education, and we believe learning comes from experiences as much as it comes from the classroom. Your child will be encouraged to explore any and all activities that interest him or her and will be raised with love, honesty, creativity, and encouragement.
We’re open to whatever relationship you would like to have with us and your child. Your child will grow up in a home that honors and celebrates you. We are blessed that you’re interested in learning more about us, and we pray you find strength and serenity throughout this time. We thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for considering our family.
Emily & Rob
We’re Rob and Emily. We met completely by chance eight years ago, got engaged three months later, and married the following year. Emily works at a large healthcare company and has a great sense of humor and a knack for instantly putting people at ease. Rob is a proud Army veteran who works in finance. He is extremely loyal and puts a lot of energy into keeping in close contact with his friends and family. We adopted our son CJ in 2019, and he is the light of our lives. We make dinner almost every night as a family, and we try to spend as much time as we can outside. We also love to watch and play sports and entertain friends and family at our home as often as we can.
We live in a traditional colonial-style home with four bedrooms, a finished basement, and a huge yard in a picturesque New England town. Our house is on a quiet cul-de-sac and backs up to a nature preserve with lots of hiking trails. There are a ton of kids in the neighborhood, and we’re close with several of our neighbors. Education is very important to us, and we’re fortunate to live in a town with great schools. We also belong to a private club five minutes from our home, where nearly every member has a family with young children. The club has a huge pool and offers fun family activities throughout the year, including a Fourth of July barbecue, an annual Halloween party, and a Christmas brunch with Santa.
Our Extended Family
Emily’s family all live within a short drive. She has a younger sister, who is married with two children. Emily’s parents are healthy and active and visit frequently. Emily also has a large extended family spread out throughout the country, with whom we also stay in close contact and visit frequently.
Rob and his mom text, call, or email nearly every single day. She is retired and lives with Rob’s older brother, who is married and has a ten-year-old. They live nearby, so we see them as often as we can. Rob is also very close with his older sister, who is married and is a doting aunt.
Our family means absolutely everything to us, and their love and encouragement is what made us who we are today. We make a point to spend quality time with them throughout the year and are frequently the hosts for most celebrations and holidays. We love to go “all out,” with multi-course home-cooked meals and decorations. Our parents can’t wait to have more grandkids, and all of the cousins are very excited to have a new playmate.
What Led Us To Adoption
We started trying to have kids right after we got married but with no success. We talked about all of the available options, and we both strongly felt the best path for our dream of becoming a family was adoption. We have a wonderful relationship with CJ’s birth parents that continues to grow. We are both very close with our siblings, and we want to provide that same experience for CJ and our next child.
