Dearest Expectant Mother,
How do you choose a family through photos and letters? We can’t imagine the magnitude and weight of this difficult decision for you. What we do know is that it takes incredible selfless, strength, courage, and love to choose adoption for your unborn baby. We know this will be one of the hardest sacrificial decisions you will have to make.
Even from our youth, we both have desired to raise children; however, we are not able to have biological children of our own. Anna had Leukemia (bone-marrow cancer) in her late teenage years, and the ablative chemotherapy that was necessary for her complete cure took out the possibility to conceive on our own through natural means. However, the desire to have another child still remains and the desire to adopt again and provide a loving family is felt immensely by us both.
Should you entrust us with your baby, he or she will be well cared for. So much love will be devoted to your child, not by just the two of us, but by our son as well.
We both come from large families and are very family oriented. We so look forward to raising our children near grandparents and lots of uncles and aunties that will spoil your baby a lot! Our first child is already reaping the rewards of being spoiled and well loved by our families. We love living a pretty active lifestyle with fun activities together, as well as with family and friends. We enjoy hiking, playing tennis (though we are super bad at it), taking road trips, and working on DIY home projects together. We also love having chill days by playing games, reading books, or watching movies.
Thank you for choosing life! Thank you for considering us to love and care for your child. It is our desire to raise a child, no matter what race or ethnicity, to truly know and understand their heritage. They will grow up knowing that all peoples are precious and should be loved and valued. Our city and community are very racially diverse, as is our family. We both have close work relationships and friendships with different races of people as well as having a brother and sister-in-law and nieces and nephews of different races and ethnicities. We love them so much and couldn’t imagine life without them. We are excited to raise your child to love diversity!
We are praying for your peace, comfort, and strength during this time.
Derek & Anna
