Tyler & Andrea
Dear Birth Parent(s):
Thank you for the opportunity to introduce ourselves and see what it would be like for us to raise your child as part of our family. You are in our thoughts and prayers as you make this important decision, and we understand the difficult issues and challenges you’re facing as you select the adoptive parents to raise your child.
Tyler and I are married and live in the suburbs near a metropolitan area. We met at work and shared similar interests, especially a love of sports. We also realized that we both had family living in the same city where he went to college. Our first date was to a college basketball game. After dating for a couple of years, we became engaged and were married a year later. Our efforts to have a child have proven unsuccessful and frustrating. We would be honored and blessed to expand our family through adoption and to raise your child in a loving and nurturing home.
I am one of two children and have a younger brother, who is married with two children. I work as a magazine editor. My parents are currently retired and enjoy being grandparents to our nephews. We know they’ll be thrilled to have another grandchild to dote on and spend time with. Growing up, I have wonderful childhood memories of doing arts and crafts and other creative activities with my Mom. My brother and I also enjoyed going to college basketball games with my Dad. I enjoy biking, going to the movies, reading and traveling. I especially love the holidays and can’t wait to experience them with our own child.
Tyler is the youngest of five children – four boys and a girl. He works in the area of membership recruitment/retention and enjoys the challenges and diversity of his job. His Dad is a retired association executive. Tyler’s Mom passed away more than 20 years ago. Growing up, Tyler had the unique opportunity to travel to various parts of the world with his dad and siblings on numerous business trips.
We both love animals, especially dogs. After we got married, we adopted a German Shepherd/Siberian Husky puppy, Murphy, who was with us for 15 years and was an absolute joy. She loved being with family and friends, and nieces and nephews couldn’t wait to spend time with her and take her for walks. Once we adopt, we’d like to get another dog because we feel that a child should experience the joys of growing up with a pet.
Our Family Fun
Many members of our family live in the area or within driving distance. Your child will be surrounded by grandparents, aunts/uncles, and nieces/nephews for family get togethers, special occasions, and the holidays. Whether it’s meeting up with family in another city to sightsee, taking annual family vacations to the beach, celebrating a wedding, tailgating at a football game, or attending a baseball game, your child will be surrounded by wonderful family and friends – their life will be filled with fun and interesting activities.
Our Home and Neighborhood
We live in a three-bedroom, three-level townhome in a beautifully landscaped residential development, which includes parks, tot lots and walking/bike paths. Our neighborhood has pools and tennis courts, and our community holds numerous events and holiday activities throughout the year for residents and their families. The county in which we live has wonderful schools and we live near a metropolitan area that has wonderful museums and a numerous cultural events.
Our Family Values
We both have college degrees and believe strongly in education. We will provide your child every possible educational opportunity. We both enjoy traveling and look forward to experiencing these trips with a child and to make sure he/she experiences different places and cultures across the country. We also have a strong work ethic and want your child to grow up happy and pursue activities of interest to him/her.
Our Hope and Promise
Tyler and I look forward to welcoming a child into our lives through adoption. We have so much to offer your child. We promise that he/she will be given a wonderful home with loving parents, relatives and friends, a great education, a set of beliefs, and activities to enrich his/her life. We will afford your child every opportunity possible. Should you choose us to raise your child, we will send regular letters and pictures so that you can share in your child’s development.
Thank you for considering us.
Tyler and Andrea
