Hi. Our names are Jon and Janet and we’d like you to join us on an imaginary camping trip to our favorite place in Colorado:
Picture the darkest nighttime sky you’ve ever seen filled with millions of shining stars. The only sound you can hear is the gentle breeze blowing through the trees surrounding your campfire and the soothing sound of a slow mountain stream in the distance. The fire is burning bright displaying brilliant yellows, reds and oranges. The marshmallow on the end of your stick is roasting and browning ever-so-slowly.
Imagine looking up into the trees to observe the waving shadows of the campfire dance on every branch. While looking up you catch a glimpse of a shooting star passing by before disappearing behind the mountain range to the south. Imagine the warmth you feel from the fire and from snuggling up to two loving parents while you smile and laugh about the day’s activities. Imagine telling your story for the 20th time today about how big that fish was that you caught. Imagine, also, sharing this moment with tons of people that love you. If you can imagine this, then you can imagine the type of life your child will have growing up as a part of our family.
Interacting with the outdoors is such a large part of our lives that we thought we would share what a typical family weekend looks and feels like to us. We are very excited to grow our family and have someone to share these memories with.
We look forward to meeting you.
Jon and Janet
