We are not really sure where to even begin! As we sit here writing this letter, our hearts are pounding with excitement and emotion, mostly because we have been dreaming about how much our life will change when we become parents and because we are so excited you are considering us.
We would like to express our admiration for the strength it takes to consider an adoption plan for your baby. It is a courageous decision and we are honored to be considered as parents for your child. It is our hope that this letter and profile book provides a picture of what life with us would look like. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to introduce ourselves to you.
We were high school sweethearts and have been married since 2010. When we married, we couldn’t wait to move out to the country, so we bought a house just outside the small Village of Cardington. Now that we have been out here for 10 years, we want to move back to Sunbury where we grew up. We are hoping to build a new house on our property in the next few years. Whether we are in Cardington or Sunbury, we are able to enjoy everything about country living but we are also just 20 minutes or so from the Columbus Zoo, COSI and about any restaurant or retail store you can think of.
Courtney is an accounting manager and Tyler was recently promoted to Service Manager. We are fortunate to work for a company that is very flexible and generous with time off. This will allow us to take frequent family vacations and short trips together. We could go camping on our property or go to the mountains, the beach, the options are endless... the important thing is that we’ll spend lots of family time together making memories.
Our little family currently consists of the two of us and our two dogs, Abby and Libby, but we are really hoping to add a little one through adoption soon. We are close to all of our parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, and grandparents, all of whom are excited about us adopting and cannot wait to meet our little one when we bring him or her home.
We have so many hopes and dreams for our future children! We will encourage them to be whatever they want to be and make sure they thrive. We will do our best to raise them to be honest, caring, hardworking, and loving. We cannot wait to hear the sound of children laughing throughout our home. We look forward to watching them run and play hide-and-seek or tag with friends. We imagine there will be endless games with water-balloons and outdoor toys. They can then go explore throughout the woods or play sports in the fields.
We have an amazing pediatrician that is a very close friend of the family on speed dial! He has answered quite a few questions we have had in our adoption journey so far. My aunt actually works for him in the scheduling department which will make it easy to get appointments. I would also like to mention that we are close to great hospitals including Children’s, OSU, Riverside hospital, and the entire OhioHealth network should they ever be needed.
We are committed to providing our child with an ongoing relationship with their birth family. If you choose, we would be open to visits, pictures, and letters, email or texting. Don’t worry, you don’t have to decide the level of openness now! We are very flexible and realize that your openness comfort level may change throughout the years.
Thank you for taking the time to consider us as parents for your child. We wish you all the best in your decision. Should your heart steer you in our direction, please know that we will always cherish and love your son or daughter unconditionally. We are looking forward to hearing from you!
Tyler & Courtney
