Letter of Introduction

Hello!  We are Michael and Anne - a fun-loving and creative couple.  We have been together since 2006 and married since 2011.  We first started the adoption process in 2017, after years of infertility.  We were matched with an expectant mother, and our daughter, Clara, was born soon thereafter. 

 

We have a wonderful relationship with our daughter's birth mother and sister, and have welcomed them into our extended family.  Although we did not meet until after our daughter was born, we have developed a close connection and visit with them frequently.  We hope to achieve a similar relationship with our next child's birth family.  Whether nearby or miles away, we are committed to maintaining regular contact through email, social media, or in-person visits.

 

We are eager to share the many blessings in our lives with another child, and we look forward to growing our extended family as well.  In addition to a loving home, we are excited to share our creative talents and passions with our children. From decorating a cake or crafting with Anne, to playing the piano or singing with Michael, to learning about the history and culture of various places we visit as a family, we will give our children well-rounded educations and unending opportunities to expand their imaginations.

 

Thank you for taking the time to read our profile and considering us to parent your child.  We sincerely wish the very best for you and your child.
