Dear Expectant Mom,

We are so delighted to be meeting you!  We are Brent and Jill and we have been trying to become parents for a very long time. In truth, this is sort of a surreal way to meet a new family member but that is how we think of you – as our new family member.  

We’d like to tell you a little bit about ourselves and hopefully, we will have an opportunity to learn more about you.  We met through a mutual friend in 2002 and had our first date at the local Dairy Queen.  We were married in Jill’s hometown two years later and chartered a bus to bring all of our friends to the small rural town 8 hours away. It was an amazing time. At the beginning of our marriage, we lived in Illinois for 15 years and eventually tired of living in the big city and wanted to have a house with our own yard and room for a child to run around. We really like the slower pace of the suburbs and have established a home in our wonderful community. We love spending time at home, cooking, and having friends over for barbeques or just to hang out. We love watching movies, reading, and cheering on the Chicago Cubs. We’ve been married for 16 years and we are looking forward to spending the rest of our lives together.

We first started trying to conceive a few years into our marriage.  Jill was in medical school and Brent was busy building his business and we sort of assumed getting pregnant would be easy and just “happen”.  Well, it didn’t happen.  And then it still didn’t happen.  But we were so busy building our careers that we didn’t get too discouraged.  We figured a baby would come at the right time.  Toward the end of Jill’s residency 6 years later we realized we may need some help. We had a couple of fertility consultations and learned that there is no medical reason we can’t conceive.  When faced with the option of going through invasive treatments and spending a lot of time on an uncertain outcome, our decision to pursue adoption became clearer.

We don’t know what you are going through right now but we expect you have mixed feelings about everything.  We don’t want our excitement about having a baby to sound “tone deaf” to you.  One of the things that we can offer you is our promise that your baby will have a comfortable, secure, and healthy home.  Your baby will have a yard to play in, parents who love each other, a large and close-knit extended family with other little cousins to grow up with and so much more.  Your baby will grow up with opportunities to travel, learn new languages, play musical instruments, and play sports.  With us, your baby will grow up in one of the safest neighborhoods in America, within a lovely and diverse community.  We want to raise your child to be compassionate and gentle-natured, but also to be courageous, curious, and confident.  Your child will know where he or she is from and will be raised to have integrity and without a sense of entitlement. 

We really want to give you the relationship with us and your baby that you are looking for.  We are very flexible and we would love to have an ongoing relationship with you. 

With love,
Brent and Jill
