Letter

Can't wait to share our love!
Hi from Nate and Leigh

From us to you with LOVE:)


Thank you so much for taking the time to look at our profile and for considering us as the potential adoptive parents for your child. We have no doubt that the decision to place your baby for adoption is a difficult one and we want to be as supportive as we can as you make this courageous decision. From our earliest memories, both of us have wanted to become parents through adoption. Our hearts are full with love and we cannot wait to share that love. We are a committed married couple and are so excited about welcoming your child into our home. We look forward to meeting you and we are truly an open book. Thank you in advance for taking the time to look at our pictures and learn a bit about us. We very much appreciate your time and wish you all the best.

How we plan to nurture our family

We are an open book!


With love
How we plan to nurture and grow our family. The answer is with love. We intend to show your child all of the love that we already feel for him or her every single day! Of course we know there will be tough days and challenges, but we have learned, over the last six years together to rely on each other when difficulties present themselves. When one of us needs help, the other has always, and will always, be there. We also want to mention that we hope to raise our children in an open way in regards to adoption. Let’s face it, your child will eventually understand that he or she is not our biological child, given that we plan on sharing that with him/her from the time they arrive in our home. We intend to always help him or her to know that you love him or her completely. In an ideal world, we’d like to have an on-going relationship with you if you would like. We are so eager, excited and anxious to meet you and get to know you.
Whatever decision you make…we wish you peace.
With love,
Nate and Leigh

Recommendations

Megan Ross (Sister)

When you walk into Leigh and Nate's home you're instantly met with warmth, love, creativity and the laughter of their son Miles.  They love being parents and what I'm constantly in awe of is how much patience and grace they have even through the most challenging parenting moments - and with kiddos there are many!  They also happen to be our children's favorite Aunt and Uncle (shhh don't tell anyone) but seriously they squeal with delight whenever we see them or FaceTime with them.  They have created a loving, supportive and enriching environment for their family and there is no one we trust more with our children than them.

We love to take selfies so we can all get into the picture. Here's one with us all. Miles has on Leigh's sunnies and he put his on Leigh:)

Our Memorial Day visit to The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum

We celebrated the long weekend together with a visit to the Intrepid museum to see all the helicopters, planes and ships. We loved seeing the smile on Miles's face when he got to sit in an old space ship. He always takes everything in and is amazed with all that surrounds him. We also visited a car museum near by to check out the race cars, and grab some lunch in the sunshine!
