Brandon and Victor
We have been preparing to write this letter to you for years. Finally, on this 4th of July holiday, surrounded by family, friends and lots of little cousins waiting anxiously to include our long-awaited child, we couldn’t be more thankful for this precious gift you are choosing to bring into our lives. Thank you.
Above all else we’ll share with you in this letter, we want you to know that you and your child are loved and welcomed by many, your place as a mother is respected, and that our lives are forever committed to your child’s success. Our home is warmed by love, planned with care, protected with confidence, and fueled by life’s joy. Our hope is for your comfort in knowing you are making the right choice.
We have been together as a couple for over 8 years, and married for nearly 6 of them. Growing our family through adoption has been a foundational goal in our relationship from the beginning. We strongly value the traditions and history created by the life-long bonds of a family, which is why we have set out on this journey to create our own.
Most importantly, however, we’ve learned to manage (and learn from) the unexpected challenges life throws at each of us from time to time. Listening, understanding, learning, forgiving and loving have been our go-to recipe when things don’t always go as planned. This is what we’ll instill in your child’s life so they are prepared when the time comes when they must face life’s challenges.
As you try to imagine your child’s life in our care, prepare yourself for a lot of smiles, laughter, and goals. As parents, we’ll be a strong team with the basics covered because we are opposites. Victor is an introvert. He is patient, creative, athletic, detail-oriented, laid back and hilarious. Brandon is an extrovert. He is a planner, very goal-oriented, curious about all things, and eager to succeed. Together we enjoy time with our friends and family, caring for our home and yard, playing with our sweet dog, “Fancy,” and celebrating anything for any reason.
With your blessing, we look forward to cuddling, playing, learning, practicing, exploring, traveling and so much more, as a family. And while we are just getting started, we are already looking down the road at expanding our family to include a sibling — another loved one with whom your child will share a life-long family bond.
