Charlie, Maria and George
Dear Birth Mother:
My name is Maria and I’m writing this letter on behalf of my family, my husband Charlie and our four year old son George. We also have a playful family dog, Sammi, and two spunky cats. We really want to welcome another child into our happy home.
We live in a quintessential cul-de-sac neighborhood in the seacoast of New Hampshire, a street where everyone knows each other’s names and watches out for each other’s children. We spend a lot of time outdoors, walking on the trails near our home or playing in the backyard. Our son, George is really excited to be a big brother someday, to show his sibling his sandbox and his collection of dinosaurs.
What we value most is spending time together as a family...this often includes our wonderful friends and extended families. On a typical weekend day we wake up, relax together over breakfast, take a walk with Sammi, tackle a home project (George has his own toy tools and he loves to help) or go on a local adventure to the science center or children’s museum, cook dinner together and play a board game. We also read a lot of books with George and help him with whatever project he’s passionate about, whether it be growing a plant from a seed or turning a large cardboard box into a pirate ship.
I teach art at the local high school and Charlie works with his family for their travel company. From teaching in the area for twelve years I’m confident that our schools will offer a wonderful education and many interesting extended learning opportunities for your child.
I feel it’s important for me to assure you that your child will be loved so very much. Your child will be safe and nurtured as he or she grows. Your child will be listened to and guided lovingly toward all that is good in this world. Your child will honor who you are in his or her life story and we welcome a discussion with you about the adoption arrangements. We want to know what you’d be comfortable with concerning an open adoption.
Thank you for considering us...
Maria, Charlie and George
