Adoption will always be in our child’s story. There won’t be any surprises when they turn 18. Adoption (among many, many other things) is going make them special. We want to be able to have an open dialog with our child regarding their adoption and we want you to be a part of that. We don’t have a clear definition of what that looks like. We are hoping to take that lead from you. But we want you to be a part of our (yours and ours) child’s life. Be that through visits, pictures, emails, or whatever, we want you there. However much, or little, you’re comfortable with. We know that you will always love this child and we want him or her to know that always.
As you know, I’m a photographer and there will never be a lack of pictures of our kids. Memories, history, and personal stories are the reason I got into photography. Even though you won’t be there every day, we want you to always feel like you know your child, what is happening with him or her, and we want to to be able to see them grow. Pictures will always be coming your way.
If you choose us, you would be giving us the opportunity to be parents. To be a part of a wonderful child’s, your child’s, life and story. What this means to us in indescribable. You will be a part of our family. We want you to feel comfortable with us and with the situation every step of the way.
We really want to meet you, to sit down and talk with you, and talk more about what role you want. Above all, we want you to feel comfortable and at peace with whatever you decide for your child. We understand that our relationship will be dynamic. We are open to as much, or as little, contact as you would like. And if it changes in the future, we’ll be here. But know that no matter what you decide, you will always be a part of our child’s life.
