We are Ali and Zeinab and we are very thrilled that you are taking the time to get to know us. We hope this letter gives you a good idea of who we are and what we can offer to your child.
Our marriage took place 15 years ago when we were both in our early 20s. Our plans to start a family were thwarted by infertility after two years. Our infertility journey left us heartbroken, with our hearts overwhelming with the desire to nurture, teach, and love a child. Our story looks different than we thought it would at the beginning of our journey, but we are incredibly thankful for every mountain and every valley that has led us here. Adoption is such a beautiful picture of what God has done for us, and we praise God for the opportunity and privilege to raise the child that he has chosen to grow with us as a family.
We both come from lovely and supportive families in Iran. Our dreams led us to the United States after we got married. Education is always a big part of our life. Ali holds a doctoral degree in environmental engineering and is employed at an environmental consulting firm. He loves what he is doing. His passion to protect the environment and preserve water resources motivates him to do his job. Zeinab holds a doctoral degree in biochemistry and works in the medical field. She loves designing and analyzing new drugs that can help with diabetes and cancer treatment.
After all, we bought our dream home in a nice neighborhood of Nashville. We have a fenced-in backyard that is ready to be a nice small playground for a child. Our house is close to most of our friends, and we easily get together on weekends. We love outdoor activities so much that as soon as we get a few days off, we plan for camping or a short trip to explore new places. Hiking and biking are always part of our weekends. Ali loves shopping, playing musical instruments, and barbecuing and Zeinab enjoys cooking, gardening, watching movies, and writing stories. We would love nothing more than to share all these lovely moments with a child.
We totally understand that it must be very difficult to figure out the best option for you and your precious baby. While we truly appreciate your bravery in making such a decision, we want to assure you that we want nothing more than the opportunity to love your child deeply and unconditionally through every stage and challenge of life. We sincerely look forward with hope, to the possibility of getting to know you soon.
