Hi Emily,

At last! We have the best update for you — we received <elite private school’s> admissions decision, and <child> has been accepted.

We are beyond thrilled for <child>, and we cannot thank you enough for all of your guidance along the way! We have truly enjoyed getting to know you over the last couple of years, and we have learned so much from you throughout the process, from the applications and essays to the interview prep, thank you notes and beyond. You helped us take what <child>and we as a family already have, but repackage and present ourselves in a compelling way. We know that this made all the difference, and we only wish that we had come to you sooner!

While we have every expectation that <child> will be calling <school> home for many years, we certainly look forward to staying in touch and intend to check in with you from time to time. In the meantime, if you have any words of advice for us as we prepare to join this new community, we are all ears — we truly appreciate and have taken to heart all of the advice and recommendations you have shared with us along the way.

Thank you again for all of your support in making this opportunity possible for <child>!

With gratitude,
