Dear Expectant Mother,
Thank you for your bravery. We know that we will never fully understand what you are going through. We want you to know that we think that you are strong and selfless. We will teach your baby about your strength and bravery.
We have wanted to adopt a child for a long time now. Adoption is close to us as we have several family members and close friends who are adopted. We were also recently reunited with Emily’s birth half-sister and have come to appreciate adoption from both sides. We have made the decision to start this process for ourselves and we are so excited. We are excited to give a loving home and a thriving life to your baby.
What will life be like for your baby? Living two blocks from the beach in California, we bicycle, do water sports and go for walks on the beach year-round. We live in a small town that is family friendly. Your baby will grow up in a vibrant community complete with 4th of July parades, fish fries, and cultural festivities. Our weekends and vacations will be full of road trips, travel, exploration and new experiences. Your baby’s life will be full of adventure.
Your baby will be part of a large family, having two great-grandparents, six grandparents, nine aunts and uncles, and ten cousins (ages 5-17) who are totally supportive and cannot wait to welcome a new member into our family. Several of our closest friends have little ones or newborns that will grow up alongside your baby.
We promise that we will always love, protect, and care for your beautiful baby. We promise that we will give your baby the best life that we are able to give: a life of unconditional love, family, and friends; and a life rich with nature, travel, good food, books, stories, poetry, and art. We will work to instill in your baby the values of love, kindness, gratitude, and faith, but also an attitude of fun, play, craziness, laughter, lightheartedness, and wonder.
We are humbled by the gift you will be giving. We will always consider you a part of your child’s life. We are fully open to you maintaining a relationship with your baby and with us, as is right for you, without pressure or judgment from us. No matter what, we will make sure your baby grows up to honor you and to understand that putting up a child for adoption is an act of selfless love.
We will be forever grateful to you.
