Dear Expectant Parent(s),

Hello!  We are Jeff and Jillian.  First, please know that we are so appreciative that you are taking the time to read this letter and consider us as potential parents to your beautiful child.  This is a very difficult decision for you and we want you to know that we fully intend to walk through this process with you.  You are not alone.  It’s our hope that we grow to know you and have you as part of our lives, forever. Please know that we pray for you and this child every single day. 

I’d like to start this letter by introducing ourselves and telling you a little bit about us individually and as a couple.

Jeff is a Chicago native.  He was born and raised in the city.  The majority of his family still live in the Chicagoland area and we visit them often.  Jeff works as an air traffic controller and his career brought us to West Michigan.  He loves anything aviation related.  In fact, our nursery theme is airplanes/travel.  Jeff is very handy and often tinkers on cars.  Standing at a foot taller than Jillian he is the go-to lightbulb repair man.  Jeff also loves animals.  Holly, our four-year-old labradoodle, is spoiled by him.  They go everywhere together.  Jeff is really loved by everyone.  He is so kind, helpful, sincere, and an all-around great person.  He will one day be an amazing father.

Jillian grew up an army brat.  Her dad spent 20 years in the military and it took her and her Mom to various different states and countries.  When her Dad retired, they moved to Rockford, IL and she spent the majority of her middle school and high school years there.  After high school, she attended college in Chicago and this is where her path crossed with Jeff’s.  Jillian is the more creative one in our marriage.  She loves being crafty, reading, and exploring the West Michigan flea markets.  Jillian holds a bachelor’s degree in advertising and values education.  She works in the pricing department for a local transportation company.  Jillian is thoughtful, caring, and adventurous.  She has really encouraged Jeff to travel more.  Since they have been together they have gone to Mexico, Jamaica, Hawaii, Orlando (Disney) and on numerous road trips.  Jillian can’t wait to take their first vacation as a family.

Chicago is where our love story started.  We met on a snowy night in December at a TGI Friday’s and we have been inseparable ever since.  Seven years later we now have five years of marriage, one dog, one large move from Illinois to Michigan, and two career changes under our belts.  We have grown a lot in those seven years and now we would like to grow even more.  With your support, we would love to expand our family.  For four years, we have struggled with infertility and have been unsuccessful. It has been the most challenging aspect of our lives, but God knows the desires of our hearts.  He has placed upon us the longing to adopt.

We have so much love to give to your child.  Our home is prepared and so are our hearts. Please know that this child will grow up knowing how much you love him or her.  There are no words to explain the amount of gratitude we have for you.  The gift of becoming parents is the best one we will ever receive.  Thank you again for taking the time to read this letter.  We cannot wait to meet you!

Thank You,

Jeff & Jillian
