Ron and Sonya - Birth Parent Letter

Ron and SonyaDear Expecting Parent,

We are Ron, Sonya, and Anna and we thank you for taking the time to read our profile and consider us as a potential adoptive family for your child. We have been unable to have our own children but are excited at the opportunity to grow our family again through adoption. Although we can’t understand everything that you are going through, we know that you are facing difficult choices and decisions and we pray that God will lead you and give you peace as you go.

So, let us tell you a bit about ourselves…
Our story together began in 2004 after we met through an online singles website. At the time, we were living in different states and so we began a long-distance relationship. Within a year, we were married and making our home together in the Chicago suburbs. After eleven years together, we still enjoy the love, friendship and adventure of marriage.

Ron is a Chicago suburbanite born and raised. He grew up watching the Cubs, playing basketball and tennis. He developed a love of long-distance running in early adulthood. Although he’s slowed down a little since then, he still enjoys long walks as well as reading and singing. He has a degree in electrical engineering and works as a software engineer.

Sonya was born and raised in Canada. She grew up with a love for reading, dolls, and playing house. As a little girl, she imagined two things for her adult life – being a nurse and being a wife and mother. After obtaining a bachelor’s degree in nursing, she enjoyed working as a geriatric nurse before marriage. Currently, she loves being a stay-at-home mom to Anna and enjoys cooking, reading, singing, all sorts of crafts, and biking.

We always hoped to have children and talked about adoption even before we were married. After two ectopic pregnancies, we felt God calling us to seriously consider adoption as the way to grow our family. So Anna joined our family shortly after her birth in 2013. She is a happy toddler with a smile for everyone and loves books, long walks and bike rides, and playing outside whenever possible. She has brought so much joy and laughter into our lives and we believe that she will make a great big sister.

We look forward to adding another child to our family. We love and follow Jesus Christ and hope that our children will do the same. To that end, we are teaching Anna and will teach your child about God’s saving love shown in Jesus. We will also teach your child about your love for them. We hope for an open relationship with you and will respect your wishes about what that will look like.

We thank you again for taking the time to read our profile. We pray for you God’s peace and blessings on this journey that you are on.
