Dear Expectant Mother,
We would like to thank you for your selfless act of providing a child for folks like us who are not able to create this miracle for ourselves. We would like to thank you for your consideration of us and, while these words cannot describe our full gratitude, we hope this letter offers you some peace during this challenging time. You are an incredibly brave and strong woman making a decision that will impact many lives for the better. Although this decision is probably the biggest decision of your life, you have the power to give your baby the best possible life. You are making this choice out of your love for your baby.
We want to tell you a little bit about ourselves and how we got to this point in our lives. We have been happily married for 3 years, have been blessed to have successful careers, and are comfortable in life with a house, a dog, and are secure for our future. We are fortunate to have our families live in nearby towns so we get to see them on a regular basis and are available for each other when we need it. We have wanted to grow our family since we got married. However, we experienced a traumatic event in our lives that put our dreams on hold. Rather than letting this trauma overtake us, we learned to at first manage and then eventually overcome our challenges. We adapted our lives to our sensitivities to foods, started practicing meditations, and reduced our anxieties drastically with the help of professionals and determination on our part. We are extremely resourceful and learned the skills and tools necessary to improve our lives. We never gave up, and now can look back and be grateful for this life-changing event that made us the people we are today. We learned to appreciate even the smallest things and realized that we have so much to be grateful for in our lives.
We want a family. After going through such a challenging time, we reflected on our lives and realized that we want and are ready to be parents. We realized that having a child on our own was not the best choice for us and that thanks to You, we can have this chance to grow our family. We want to show the love that is in our hearts to a little one and be able to share the lives that we are building. We overcame what we thought was impossible and feel that there is nothing that can stop us now from being loving, caring and attentive parents. This is our chance for us to have the life that we have wanted for a long time.
We promise take care of your child as our own and give them a loving home. We have the emotional maturity and financial means to ensure that your child has everything they need to thrive in their life. We will raise your child knowing that we are there for them every day no matter what and can do this without any hesitation. We ask that you take the time you need to make this life-changing decision, listen to your heart and trust yourself that you are making the right choice for you and your baby. We will make sure that your child knows that you made a courageous decision and that you made this choice because you knew this was the best thing for everyone.
Konrad and Kristen
