Dear Birth Parents,  

Before we introduce ourselves, we want to tell you how thrilled we are to have the opportunity to complete our family through adoption. We are eager to share our love, care, and experiences with a child. Thank you for considering us as an adoptive family for your child. This has been a long and emotional journey for us, so we can imagine how much more so it has been for you.


Our names are Joe and Brigitte; and instead of talking about facts and dates, wed like to share our belief about what is important in raising a child. Hopefully that will give you some idea of who we are. Our dream is simply that our child feels loved, valued, and secure always. We want our child to grow up to be responsible, self sufficient and filled with love and joy.


Our families are both large and close knit. Our family traditions are very important to us. Holiday celebrations often involve our large extended families and are always a great time. Our child will know that no matter what happens his or her family will be there for them with the love and support. Our families have taught us that giving is even more fun than receiving, we hope to share this belief with our child as well.


Our child will have the opportunity to broaden their horizons by learning more about the world through travel, history, music and general education. We will encourage our child to follow our example of reading and learning new things every day. Not a day goes by that we fail to learn something new. We want our child to respect the world around them. We will encourage this by involving them in nature and the outdoors. We hope that our child will enjoy going out to the lakes in the summer, and snowboarding or making snowmen in the winter.


We believe that every person should start and end their day with laughter, and we would love to share our laughter and joy with a child.
