We have started this letter many times. Mainly because it is hard to find words that are adequate, words worthy enough of the difficult journey that has led all of us here. We can not imagine the emotions that you are feeling as you choose a family with which to entrust your child. This is who we are, why we have chosen to adopt and how we will raise a child.
We (RJ and Amanda) have been married for 12 years. We have a fun, loving, stable and supportive relationship that has only grown stronger throughout the years. RJ is an attorney and a partner at his law firm. He plays golf with his dad as often as possible and also loves to go fishing. Amanda works four days a week at a bank in loss prevention. On her days off she likes to read, attend pilates classes, and spend time with our two dogs. She will likely stay at home once we are placed with a child. Our favorite things to do together are to travel, watch a good movie and spend time with neighbors, family and friends.
We decided to start a family about 10 years ago. Unfortunately things don’t always go as planned. We have had difficulty getting pregnant, and had several miscarriages during that time, but we had chosen not to attempt any serious infertility treatments. Our dream has always been to have a family, and we are grateful to be given this opportunity in order to do so. We look forward to the privilege of raising a child, providing him/her with constant love, lifelong support and limitless opportunities to fulfill dreams.
