Dear Expectant Mother,
First, we just want to say that we think you are an extremely brave woman with a selfless heart. We want to thank you from the very depths of our heart that you are making this tough decision for your child. We can’t begin to understand the anguish and heartache of your situation and this decision. We can only say how grateful we are and can promise that if you choose us as parents of your child, we will love, care for, and raise your child to become a strong, healthy, independent and productive adult in the future.
We struggled with infertility for many years but always knew we wanted to become parents. We decided we would grow our family through adoption and two years ago we were blessed with our son, Corbin through the gift of adoption. Corbin has been an incredible blessing to us, and we are excited to grow our family again through adoption.
Our hope for our children is that they feel blessed, kind, happy, smart, and know they can do anything. We will support your child physically, spiritually, emotionally and financially. We will build traditions and memories through different experiences and travel. Our home will be full of laughter, joy, and all out noise as we play hide and seek, race, and fly around imagining ourselves as airplanes.
We moved from the city life back to the small town we grew up in about 6 years ago. We bought a 130-year-old house on 12 acres of land. We gutted it and completely renovated our house, making it in to a home that we can be in forever. We added a great, wrap-around porch on where we can view the sunrise and sunsets while Corbin plays on the playground or in the grass. Just this past year we built a large playground area and enjoy spending evenings together pushing Corbin on the swing or watching him go down the slides. Our acreage is covered with different trees and grasses that we walk through with Corbin. We live a mile from Matt’s parents, who live on the other side of the corn/bean field and we spend at least one evening a week with them. Kristi’s parents live only a short 10 minutes away and we go to each other’s homes and every so often Corbin will stay the night with them. The community is an all-around nice place to raise children as it is safe, and everyone is friendly. The area is full of children and young parents. While driving around you can see children outside playing and riding bikes through the side streets. It’s a very relaxed and kind community that helps each other out when needed.
Our children will know where they came from and who their birth parents are. We will continually bring up adoption as your child grows so they can understand what it means and know that you loved them so, so much. We will tell your child how much we love you, and that you gave us the greatest gift of all. We will think of you every day and pray for your health and happiness. Thank you for considering our family!
Matt & Kristi
