To Someone Special,
We are Kevin and Aileen. Thank you for this opportunity to tell you a little bit about us. We’ve learned through our personal journey that adoption is truly a selfless gift. We also understand that this must be a very difficult and emotional decision for you. No letter could ever truly capture what makes up any of us as individuals. We simply hope that learning more about us and our pure desire to start a family will provide you with some comfort and reassurance. We admire your strength and courage and wish you peace and grace in whatever your decision.
We are hopeful that our story and attached photographs will give you a better idea of who we are, our life with family and friends, and our wish to be a family through adoption.
We have been married for several years and feel we are truly blessed to have found each other. We first met on a date that was set up by very close mutual friends (Aileen knew it was a set up; Kevin was in the dark!). We had fun talking, laughing and discovering all of the things we have in common, that we both believe it was “love” and “best friends” at first sight. We have been laughing and enjoying time together as best friends ever since.
We both come from very close families and look forward to starting our own. We always knew we wanted to be parents and tried everything to achieve our life goal; biologically, spiritually and medically – it just never happened. We faced many challenges and heart wrenching disappointments during this time but these obstacles only strengthened our resolve and desire to become parents. These experiences have brought us closer together and we are confident that the most important part of raising a child is the love we already have in our hearts for the child that could be waiting for us.
We like to spend time as much time together as we possibly can, and when we do, we enjoy all outdoor activities. We live very close to the ocean and enjoy spending time on the beach. We also run and bike together. In the winter we love to ski. And there’s no telling when we’ll burst into spontaneous dance. Our wedding song is the Beatles’ In My Life. No matter where we are Kevin insists we dance to it. We could be in the mall or a crowded elevator - no question – we dance! All of our similar interests drew us to each other, but it is our love of family and shared values on faith and life in general that make us the strong, solid couple we are today.
We both obtained degrees after graduating college and would strongly encourage and support a child to follow our example with regards to the importance of a good education. We are extremely close with both of our families and are excited to include a new baby into our family stories and adventures. We wait for the chance to raise a child as we were raised; in a home focused on health and happiness, love, learning, loyalty and laughter.
