Dear Expectant Mom,
We are so grateful that you would consider us to care for and love your baby for the remainder of our lives. You are one strong mama to be open to considering adoption to provide your baby with the bright future you dream of for them. Our family cannot wait to meet your little one and welcome them into our lives. We, along with our entire extended family, will love your baby unconditionally. We will raise your little one to be kind, strong, respectful, and caring.
We live in a quiet neighborhood near a huge park, playground, and elementary school. Our four-year-old son, Ethan, loves playing outside with the neighborhood kids, doing chalk art, running through the sprinklers, making mud pies, or riding around on scooters. We like to spend our time playing and laughing. On the weekends, we like to visit the “train park” where we can ride around the park, feed the ducks, and ride the ponies. Our favorite place to vacation is San Diego – so we can go to Sea World, the San Diego Zoo, or Legoland. We also love to eat breakfast in bed and hang out at the pool when we go down to visit.
We have been on a roller coaster of a fertility journey for the past six years. We’ve had several failed IVF attempts, a late-term pregnancy loss, and other pregnancy complications. Christina’s physicians have told her it is no longer recommended or safe for her to attempt carrying a child to term. Before we began our IVF journey, we talked at length about all the possible options we had to grow our family. We decided that genetics was not the only thing that equated to family and that we were both open to adoption.
You will likely think of your baby as the years pass, and we would love to share everything we know about you with them. We will most definitely tell your baby that you are a brave and strong woman who loved them and will always love them. We would love to have an open relationship that has healthy boundaries that we all agree on. We will send photos as often as you’d like. If at some point in the future, you would like to meet your child, we would welcome that so your baby knew they were loved by so many people.
We want to say “thank you” over and over for considering this choice, “thank you” for being open to adoption, “thank you” for helping our dream become a reality. There are not enough proper words to express our gratitude or our admiration of you for allowing us to love and care for your baby.
Michael and Christina
