Dear Expectant Mother,
We can’t imagine what you must be going through. Fear, anxiety, and helplessness might just be a few of the emotions you must be feeling. We have, however, experienced similar emotions at one time or another over the past four years through our journey with infertility and loss. While we do have some shared emotional connections, we also acknowledge there is no way to fully understand what you feel in this moment. We admire how strong you are for considering adoption for your child and for considering us to be the best parents we can be to your child. We know this is not an easy choice and we hope to do whatever we can to ease your mind some about this big decision.
Despite our struggles with infertility, we have always dreamed of adopting. We are eager to start our family through your courage and grace. We can’t wait to be parents and share our love and our lives with a little one.
We firmly believe that God has brought us together for a reason and all that we have each been through is for a greater purpose. We have faith in the fact that God put us on this earth to meet each other and help one another through this process. To be there for one another, walking hand in hand, to make sure that your child is cared for and lives a life that he/she can thrive in. We will not only share your child’s adoption story with him or her, but we will make them aware of you and your journey. We want to be an open book as parents and will never hide you from your child. We are open for discussion about your involvement in your child’s life as well. We would love to send pictures occasionally and updates so that you always fees connected.
We can assure you that your baby will be well cared for. Beyond our love and attention, they will have 3 sets of grandparents ready to spoil them at every turn! They will also enjoy a vibrant, extended family in the form of relatives and cherished friends, all of whom continue to support and encourage us along the way. Daily life will be consumed with laughter, learning and playing…both indoors and outdoors. We can’t wait for trips to the local parks, the family lake house, the Children’s Museum and our favorites, aviary and zoo. We will build upon our current traditions, make lasting memories and give them the opportunity for success and happiness at each stage of their lives. They will have a future filled with joy, hope and endless possibilities. They will have the freedom to be whoever and whatever they want to be. We will be there support them 100%, no matter what.
Thank you for your strength, your courage and most of all, considering us for this amazing opportunity! We look forward to opening our hearts and our home to your child. We promise that we will not let you down and you will NEVER be forgotten.
Paul & Heather
