Letters

HI! We are Nathan and Amber, and we are excited by the prospect of adding a child into our family through open adoption.
We graduated high school together in 2006, but our first conversation was not until the summer of 2013 when we were both asked to go to a picnic with a mutual friend. We had an instant connection, began spending time together, and eventually started dating. Our love grew stronger, and we were married in 2016. We’ve been having fun together ever since.
We have dreamt about starting a family together from the very beginning of our relationship but struggled with infertility for several years. Our struggle ultimately brought us closer together and led our hearts toward open adoption. We are genuinely excited and overjoyed to be in this stage of our adoption journey and cannot wait to see what the future holds!

When I met Amber, I was immediately drawn to her. She has an amazing sense of humor and the ability to look at every situation in a positive way. She has an older sister and a younger brother; she has an incredible bond with both. Amber shares the same closeness with her parents and spends a lot of time with her mom. She thrives on making everyone around her smile and genuinely loves to help others.
Amber’s interests include being outdoors, shopping for just about anything, going out to eat with her friends, and spoiling and loving our dogs. All of these attributes make me love her more and more every day. I have always pictured Amber as a mother, due to her loving and giving nature. She adores children! Some of her favorite times are spent with her niece, nephew, and her friend’s kids. I am excited to watch Amber flourish into the mom that I have always pictured her to be.

Meeting Nathan has been one of the greatest blessings in my life! Nathan is a very caring and loving individual. He is easy going and never seems to let anything bother him. He makes the best of every situation. Nathan is extremely close with his family, especially his mom. He is very motivated, particularly in his career. Nathan makes me endlessly proud and pushes me to be the best version of myself. Nathan’s never-ending love and support inspire me to reach all of my goals and dreams. I love him very much and cannot wait to see him become a dad!
Nathan is a man of many interests. He thoroughly enjoys being outdoors, fishing, hunting, and golfing. Nathan loves competing in golf leagues and fishing in tournaments. He also likes to spend time with his friends playing horseshoes, bowling or just catching up.
We love our home and the rural area it is located in. We have made many updates to make our home our own. It’s hard for us to choose our favorite part of our home because we love everything about it! Amber loves to decorate our house with antiques and rustic furniture. Our big front and backyard are perfect for our two dogs, Daisy, and Puzzles, to run around in. We look forward to having our backyard filled with a swing set, toys, and the love of a child.
We have many nearby friends that also have children. Amber’s family lives less than a mile away on a large lot with a pool. Our neighborhood has several community parks and a dairy farm with the best ice cream! The area we live in is the perfect environment for raising a child, and we cannot wait to make memories here.
Family is very important to us, and we cherish every moment we get to spend with them. Both of our families live just a few minutes away from us, except for Amber’s brother who lives in Florida, we visit him twice a year. We spend a lot of time with our families on the weekends. Every Saturday we enjoy spending time with our niece and nephew.
Our families love getting together for holidays. Nathan’s family celebrates Christmas by having a big dinner on Christmas Eve, and Amber’s family has a dinner on Christmas Day. We look forward to both Christmas dinners each year. Birthdays are important to our families, and we make sure to celebrate every single one!
It is a huge blessing to have a close and supportive family who we talk to on a daily basis. Our families are overjoyed about our decision to have an open adoption!
We enjoy finding activities to do outside, in every season. Whether it’s sitting on the porch or going on an adventure, we live for the outdoors. You can often find us on the mountain riding four-wheelers with our friends. We love to spend the day riding the trails and stopping to cook lunch or dinner over a campfire.
Every summer we look forward to traveling to upstate NY to go camping with Amber’s family. We spend time together on the boat, Nate fishes and Amber soaks up the sun. Having a campfire and a cookout is one of our favorite summer activities. In the winter, Nate is crazy about ice fishing with his father-in-law. The snow brings out our inner child, and we cannot wait to pass down that fun-loving attitude as we expand our family. We also enjoy a simple night at home, lounging on the couch, watching television, and snuggling our dogs.
We enjoy spending time together and have made memories that will last a lifetime. We cannot wait to make more memories with a child!
Thank you for taking the time to view our profile and consider us. Hopefully, it has given you a snapshot of our lives. Our hearts are full of love and anticipation for the child we hope to parent through open adoption. We cannot wait to fulfill our dreams of being parents.
We promise that this child will grow up knowing where they came from and we look forward to keeping you updated with letters, photos, and visits throughout the years. We will provide this child with the same unconditional love our families have blessed both of us with.
Although we cannot imagine how difficult your decision must be, we want you to know that we admire your strength, sacrifice, and courage. We wish you all the best as you decide what is best for you and your child.
