Dear Expectant Mother,
Thank you for taking the time to read this letter. We cannot imagine what a confusing and difficult time you are facing. We want you to know that we find it incredibly brave and admirable of you to consider all of your options to ensure you and your baby have the best possible outcomes.
We were in a doctor’s office years ago discussing all of our options. Years of infertility required us to work for parenthood with all of our hearts and time, and yet our path to become a family was one we never had envisioned. We went through a tough journey before we realized that we had been chosen to become adoptive parents by destiny, and it’s been more beautiful that the life we could’ve imagined.
We know there is another child that is meant to be raised with our love and support on a journey that was chosen by someone who loves them to the depths of their soul. We are ready with open hearts and open arms when your child, who will complete our family, arrives. More importantly, we know that will happen when it’s the right time, for the right reasons, with the right birth parent(s). We are here if this is the right situation for you.
Our home is based on happiness and we work hard to live by a family mindset that’s focused on joy. Life presents tough situations, but we know that if we address them with love and kindness, we will not only be the best versions of ourselves, we will also raise kind and loving children. We want to give a child room to be who they’re destined to become and give them the unconditional love and support needed to develop their dreams.
We will always ensure that your child knows where they come from and how much love it took to create their story. We believe in open and honest discussion and will be here to answer any questions they may have. We will support them to be confident in their identity and to be proud of who they are.
We plan to have a family that seeks adventure together and explores as much of the world as our children desire. We want to show them the beauty and goodness that the world has to offer and remind them that our lives are our greatest blessing.
We have the deepest respect for you blessing your child with life and spending time exploring your heart for the option that makes most sense for you and your baby. We are here without judgement or pressure, to support you as you navigate this chapter.
With love and support,
Leigh and Jay
