Hello! We are Elissa and Eric

Hi there! Thank you so much for looking at our profile! We are Eric and Elissa and we live in central Oregon—a beautiful sunny area that’s great for doing all kinds of outdoor activities. When it came time to think about starting a family, adoption was our first choice. We have never tried to have children biologically, but rather want to extend love to a baby who is already alive and needs a warm, stable environment.

OUR LETTER

Dear Expectant Parents,

 

Hi there! Thank you so much for looking at our profile! We are Eric and Elissa and we live in central Oregon—a beautiful sunny area that’s great for doing all kinds of outdoor activities. Eric grew up here and we have lived here together since our marriage in 2011. Eric is an accountant but doesn’t identify himself with his work. How does he identify himself, you may ask? As a fun, nerdy longboarder, who loves spending time with friends (and reads too much fiction). Elissa loves being a preschool teacher, and enjoys painting, playing the piano, reading and watching Spanish TV shows (she is fluent in French, having grown up in Belgium, and is trying to attain fluency in Spanish). We spend a lot of our free time together, whether that’s reading to each other,
floating lazily down the river, or just goofing off. We enjoy each others’ company so much!

They say marriage is hard, but that has not been our experience. This is probably due to our similar personalities, easy-going lifestyle, reliance on God, and the fact that we are both loving, respectful and communicative. When it came time to think about starting a family, adoption was our first choice. We want to extend love to a baby who is already alive and needs a warm, stable environment. Even though we would be raising your child, we want you to be part of their life. We want this to be an open adoption, for your sake as much as for your child’s, so they can grow up knowing how
loved they are by everyone around them. We will work hard to provide an environment in which they can thrive, be creative and fulfill all their dreams. Elissa plans on staying home with the child to give them all the care and affection needed to grow healthy and happy.

We are very grateful that you are considering adoption and that you are taking the time to look through our profile!

Roses are red
Violets are blue
We’re writing this lame poem
To say: Thank You!,

Elissa and Eric
