Dearest Expectant Mother,
How do you choose a family through photos and letters? We can’t imagine the magnitude and weight of this difficult decision for you. What we do know is that it takes incredible selfless strength, courage, and love to choose adoption for your baby. We understand this will be one of the hardest sacrificial decisions you will have to make.
Even from our youth, we both have desired to raise children; however, we are not able to have biological children of our own. Anna had Leukemia (bone-marrow cancer) in her late teenage years, and the chemotherapy that was necessary for her complete cure took out the possibility to conceive on our own through natural means. However, the desire to have children still remains, and the desire to adopt a child and provide a loving family is felt immensely by us both.
Should you entrust us with your baby, he or she will be well cared for and given so much love. We will devote all of our attention to your baby and they will be the main focus of our home!
We both come from large families and are very family-oriented. We so look forward to raising our children near grandparents and lots of uncles and aunties that will spoil the baby a lot! We love living an active lifestyle with fun activities together, as well as with family and friends. We enjoy hiking, playing tennis (though we are super bad at it), taking road trips, and working on DIY home projects together. We also enjoy having chill days at home - playing games, reading books, or watching movies. Your child will have a balanced environment.
Thank you for choosing life! Thank you for considering us to love and care for your child. We desire to raise your child to truly know and understand their heritage. They will grow up knowing that all peoples are precious and should be loved and valued. Our city and community are very racially diverse and so is our family. We both have close work relationships and friendships with people from many different backgrounds. In our immediate family, we have a brother, sister-in-law, nieces, and nephews of different races and ethnicities. We love them so much and couldn’t imagine life without them. We are excited to raise your child to love diversity!
We are praying for your peace, comfort, and strength during this time.
~Derek & Anna
