Belle & Eric
Thanks for getting to know us a little better and thank you for considering us to be your child’s adoptive family. We have an incredible amount of respect for the decision that you have made and we hope that, by the time you’re done reading this letter, you will want to give us the chance to learn a little bit more about you as well.
We are Belle and Eric. We both work in education. Belle works from home as a full time piano teacher and Eric works as an administrator at a small, independent elementary school in downtown Richmond. Both of us love working with and being around children. And, while we’ve never had children of our own, we are both anxiously awaiting the opportunity to open our home to a child.
We both place a tremendous amount of value in our close network of friends and family, all of whom are excited to help us build a fun, safe, accepting, and supportive community in which our adopted child will be able to thrive and grow. We enjoy visiting family in New York over summer and holiday breaks as well as spending time with friends and their children on weekends.
From relaxing at the beach during the summer to apple picking in the fall and hitting trails all year around, we enjoy life. We are both marathon runners as well as supporters of the arts, so we are excited to share those passions with a child while helping them to find that which drives them in their own lives as they grow and develop.
We are thankful for your time and look forward to meeting you and learning more about the hopes and dreams you hold for your child.
Belle and Eric
