Dear Expectant Mother,
Your baby will be surrounded by love, support, respect, affection, laughter, and security. We’re both very curious people and will teach your baby to love learning and experiencing new things. Your baby will live in a home that is filled with music, family, books, amazing food, adorable pets (3 little doggies and 2 sweet cats), and fun. Your baby will thrive in our town where community, kindness, equity, respect, and joy are highly valued. We will include your baby in our church community and foster curiosity about all different ideas, faiths, cultures, and ways of life. Your baby will grow up learning in wonderful schools, traveling the world with family, learning to care for and respect themself, communicate needs, and form healthy boundaries and positive life-long relationships with others. Your baby will always be treated with kindness, gentleness, respect, attention, validation, support, and unconditional love. The future will be wide open and bright for your child.
We want to acknowledge how difficult this time in your life must be for you. We have both faced some huge challenges in life, but the choice you’re facing right now is immense and we won’t pretend that we can relate. We haven’t been where you are, but please know that if you choose to allow us to raise your child, we will support you as best we can, and we will hold space for you in your baby’s life in a way that feels right for you. Thank you for reading this letter and for considering us for the most amazing role we ever hope to fulfill as parents of your child.
Danielle & Matt
