Dear Expectant Mother,
We must admit, we’re slightly stumped at where to start in this letter. What do you say to a person who could change your family’s life? We can’t help but look back six years ago when we wrote a similar letter that led us to our oldest son. The admiration and gratitude we have for you can’t even be put into words. While we can’t pretend to know what you’re going through; we can offer our assurance. Assurance that we will love your baby unconditionally. Assurance that they will be cared for, provided for, protected, cuddled, played with, and offered everything this world has for them. We can also assure you that we will also love and respect you. We will share with your baby that they are deeply loved by two mothers and our hope is that you will be part of our lives. Your child will have two big brothers who will do the same and be lifetime friends.
We often imagine our future with this precious baby – doted on by two brothers, extended family, and friends. It is our hope that you will become as much a part of our future family as your baby will, but know we will always respect any boundaries you put into place. Our support for you and your baby is endless. We strongly believe family is what you make it – whether that be through adoption, biology, friends that are family, or something entirely different. Family is built through love and bonds that are unbreakable.
Your little one’s life will be filled with fort building, movie nights, trips to Disney (a favorite for our family) and the beach, lots of family time with grandparents and cousins and the loudest cheering section at anything they do – whether it be sports, academic success or their first steps. Most importantly, their life will be filled with love and support that has no end.
We hope you’ll consider us for this blessing and honor of growing our family.
