Hello & Thank You

We are happy to introduce ourselves, we are Joel and Esmeralda. We cannot begin to understand the difficult choice you are making but respect and admire your decision to choose adoption for your child. Though we do not know each other, we share the same desire; to give a child the best life possible. Over the past few years we have tried to start our family through any means possible; including fertility treatments, with no success, which brings us here and to why we are writing this letter to you. We believe that God has brought us here and opened our hearts to adoption.

We both are very involved with children of all ages from our family, the church, and the community. Joel has coached soccer, both middle school and high school, for the Christian school he graduated from. He also volunteers with the church community outreach program and helped coach elementary boys basketball. Esmeralda comes from a large family and has many brothers, sisters, nieces, and nephews. She loves her family and children of all ages. When Esmeralda lived in Mexico she was active in her church and taught an elementary Sunday school class.

Our promise to you is to surround your child with love, respect, and encouragement. We are committed to providing a life for your child that is full of love, security, wisdom, self-confidence, fun, and great opportunities. We also desire to have our child get the same Christian school education that Joel received as a child. Adoption is a blessing and our hope is to be given the opportunity to become the loving parents we desire to be.

We want to thank you for taking the time to read our letter and for your consideration. We will always recognize and share how special you are, and will always be grateful for this beautiful gift of life. We hope our book will help you get to know us a little better and provide comfort in your decision of the placement of your child. We are excited about this journey and cannot wait to build a lifetime of memories.
