Dear Expectant Mother,
There is so much we would like to tell you about ourselves to help you in your decision, but first we would like to talk about you. We cannot pretend to know what you are going through or how difficult the choice to place your unborn child in the arms of another can be. We want you to know that we think you are one of the bravest and most courageous people there is! We believe you are making this decision with your baby’s best interest at heart. We know you want your child to have the best life they can possibly have and that is exactly what we want to give them! Please be assured that your child will be absolutely consumed by love and bring constant and immeasurable joy to our family! We have dreamed about being parents our whole lives! Now that we are parents to an amazing little girl, our hearts are so full of joy and love that there is no question that we wanted to grow our family again and welcome another baby! We cannot wait to watch two children bond, grow and learn together!
Not having children was never an option for us. Infertility issues led us to the choice of adoption and we could not be more thrilled to have adopted our beautiful Emily! To us you do not have to have the same blood to be a family, and raising our children will be the most rewarding thing we get to do in this world! We cannot wait to love, teach and nurture your baby as our own! We look forward to rocking and singing them to sleep, to just holding them, to being woken up in the middle of the night because of a bad dream, to making a mess making cookies, to experiencing the first love, and the first tear. Those are the moments that bind you and that you cherish for the rest of your life!
As surprising as it may sound, Emily’s birth mother has become a close friend to us. We started bonding the last few months of her pregnancy after she picked us. Those bonds continued to grow after Emily’s birth through texts, updates and milestones reached. We are so incredibly thankful that God brought her and Emily into our lives!
We are patient, loving and giving people who will put your child before all else! As a couple we are soul mates, unconditionally in love, and fully devoted to each other! We met through a mutual friend while attending college and instantly knew we were meant to be together! We are problem solvers and very much a team. We would give your child the same unconditional love and devotion that we have for each other! We will teach them right from wrong, how to make good choices and to believe in themselves. We believe in the importance of a good education and would hope to instill a love of knowledge and hard work. We will support him or her no matter what their interests might be, and allow them to experience all kinds of different things. We can already see ourselves as a family of four, making s’mores at night in front of a warm campfire or crowded around a table with popcorn for family game night.
Our neighborhood is a wonderful place for a child to grow up in! There are many young children who live on our street, so making friends will be easy. There is a common area within the small neighborhood where kids can play, in addition to several beautiful parks nearby.
There are a couple professional sports stadiums, amusement and water parks and zoos just a short drive away. More importantly though, we live in an excellent and respected school district where your child would be assured a top quality education!
It will be an honor to get to be parents again and it would mean the world to us! We know now from experience that getting to be a parent is sacred and life’s biggest blessing! We never could have imagined before just how amazing and life changing being a parent can be! Being able to watch a baby grow and learn and make us laugh every day is life’s most rewarding gift! However, parents can never be replaced or forgotten, and we will make sure your child knows just how much they are loved by you, and by us, every single day!
Jonathan and Kirah
