Dear Birth parent(s) ~

We are so honored for you to take the time to get to know us through reading about us! We know that it would be much easier to get to know us over some baked goods. (John makes the best chocolate chip cookies.)  We pray that for now this letter shares a glimpse into our hearts and lives.

We want to begin by saying that you are so brave and courageous even if you don’t feel that you are right now.  We can’t even begin to imagine how difficult this decision is for you. We know that you want the very best for your baby and that is beautiful! We are praying for you even before we meet you.

We have been married for three years and are beyond excited at the thought of starting a family!  We both love children and have always dreamed of having children.  God has shown us what a special place adoption has in His heart.  We would be honored to adopt a precious child and raise him or her in our home with much love.  Adoption is already part of our family in that John’s sister adopted a child a few years ago who is now five years old.  She is a very special part of our family.

What Christi loves about John:

John is amazing!  He's my best friend and one of the most faithful, servant-hearted men you will ever meet!  He loves God with all his heart and loves me so well!! He is so patient and kind hearted. One thing that I noticed about John when we first met was how well that he loves all people.  He loves to interact one on one with each person in a room.  He wants each person to feel special. He always keeps me laughing with his great sense of humor!  He can also be very goofy!  I can't wait to see him as a dad because I have no doubt that he will be unbelievable in every way.  He is such a good uncle.  Our nieces and nephew adore him and are always excited to spend time with him.

What John loves about Christi:

I love Christi’s love for life and her commitment to Jesus!  She lights up a room with her smile and loves to make people feel valued.  She is very compassionate and caring and loves to encourage others.  She is very adventuresome and loves to travel to different countries and experience different cultures.  One of my favorite memories from our dating days was visiting her in Spain and exploring Spanish cities with her. I love that she cooks healthy meals and makes our house a home. I can’t wait to see her as a mom.  She is excellent with children and they love being around her!  I specifically love watching her play with our nieces and nephew.  She has so much fun loving them, doing special things with them.  She comes alive when she is around them.

We are hopeful that you will consider us to be part of your child's adoption plan. We continue to pray that God gives you strength, comfort and blessings throughout this process. Should you bless us with the opportunity to be the adoptive parents of your child, we are committed to keeping you updated on your child’s growth and progress. We promise to ensure your child knows and understands your loving choice for him or her. We look forward to not only building a special and unique relationship with your child but with you as well.

Much love and prayers,

John and Christi
