“We have been matched…Thank you so much!” Erin and George, Jan. 25, 2019
Dear Expectant Parents,
We are a loving family looking to adopt a newborn baby boy. We want to accomplish this through open adoption, as we’d really like to develop a relationship with you. We want you to know that your baby will be loved and well cared-for and we want you to have a place in our hearts as well.
Erin and George met almost 8 years ago at work and have two daughters; Annabelle, 6 and Kaitlyn, 12. We live in Pennsylvania, but are willing to travel for adoption. In 2015 I was a surrogate for a sweet family who couldn’t carry and had lost a couple babies. It was such an amazing gift to be able to give someone. We got married in August, 2017 in Scotland and it was such an amazing, once-in-a-lifetime trip. Our two daughters and our family were there to help celebrate and we were just ecstatic. After the wedding, we stayed in Europe for a short honeymoon and it was a dream! We wanted to have another baby as soon as possible and got pregnant right away. Unfortunately it was a rare form of ectopic pregnancy and in October, my uterus ruptured and I almost died (they had to remove my uterus and left ovary). It has been an extremely difficult recovery, but I’m finally getting back to a normal routine and my normal activity level.
Erin is a loving mother, generous person, nature lover and healer. She’s been working as a midwife for a couple years, but is getting her nurse practitioner degree so that she can help care for the entire family. She loves animals, volunteers at a couple shelters and by fostering kittens. Erin is active and loves being outdoors, especially with her family on hiking trips and nature walks. She is a passionate mother, longing to have another baby to shower with love!
George is a wonderful father who loves having fun with the girls. Playing with Legos, running around outside, reading to Annabelle and playing board games are his favorite ways to spend family time. He works from home often, so gets to see his family more than most dads, which is very important to him. George enjoys traveling, reading and eating ethnic foods (especially Indian and Thai!). He cannot wait to have a son and welcome that new baby into our family!
Kaitlyn is 12 and loves spending time with friends, family and playing with Annabelle. She loves to read, sing and does gymnastics every week. She enjoys playing games like Exploding Kittens, Catan and Tokaido. Kaitlyn loves anything Harry Potter and is excited to see her new little brother in the Harry Potter diaper she helped pick out!
Annabelle is a sweet, intelligent 6 year old who loves babies and animals. She especially loves cats and helped to name our first adopted kitty, Zanzibar (Zanzibar Buck Buck McFate), named after a Dr Seuss character. She has wanted a baby for a very long time and was very upset last October when we lost the baby. She asks often when we can adopt a little brother and even promised she’ll change some diapers!
We enjoy spending time outdoors, hiking, traveling (we’ve taken our girls to Disney, on a cruise and Europe), we love trying new foods, especially ethnic foods, we go to parks often, play games and read to the kids every day. All of us want a sweet little baby to join our family and we hope to get to know you better. We’d love a baby boy to join our girls and they are very hopeful that they’ll soon have a brother. George works from home part of the time and I’m going back to school for my nurse practitioner degree (mostly online), so we can both spend plenty of time with the baby. We would love to share our home and our love with your baby. We want to be sure this is truly the right decision for you and we want to offer you as much support as we can through this. Please message us if you’d like to chat!
Looking forward to this journey,
Erin, George, Kaitlyn & Annabelle
