We are at a loss for what we should say. Our initial instinct is to want to empathize with you, but that could never happen. We can’t even imagine what you are going through. We want to comfort you, but we don’t know you. What we can do is promise with one hundred percent certainty that we will do our best. 

We will love your baby as our baby. We will do everything with your baby that we did with our son. We will love them unconditionally. When they cry, we will answer them with whatever they need. We will hold them and love them. When they get older, we will teach them about and show them the world. We will play with them. We will travel and go outside with them. When they need it, we will lovingly discipline them so that they not only know what right and wrong means, but can act on it. We will do our best to give them opportunities to grow and succeed in their dreams and passions. We will do our best. 

We want you to be in our lives. Heritage and knowing where you come from is important, and you will be that link for your baby. We want you to teach them about their heritage. We would love to incorporate some of your traditions into our own so that their heritage stays alive through you. Just like we’re planning on having a lifelong relationship with this baby, we also want to have a lifelong relationship with you! We won’t just adopt your baby, but you’ll be adopted, in a way, into our family as well, so that this little baby can know that they are loved. They will know that wherever they turn, there can be someone they can talk to. You’ll be able to remind them where they came from. 

So you know, we’ve just gone through the process of raising an infant. The first year of our son’s life was wonderful yet challenging, and we learned a lot. We were fortunate enough to be able to take two or three months of leave from work to take care of him as a newborn. We were also fortunate enough to be financially and emotionally ready for a child. We are excited to welcome another child into our home, since we have the resources and time to do that again. Also, on a lighter note, that means we have a ton of infant clothes, toys, books, and other items waiting to be pulled out of boxes and used again. Of course, we’ll find clothes and toys that better suit your baby’s size and unique personality, but it doesn’t hurt to have a few hand-me-downs! 

We will raise our kids with an open mind. For instance, we aren’t going to force a certain hobby or career on our children - that would ignore their thoughts, feelings, and passions. Instead, we will foster their creativity, and develop their kindness as well as their mental and physical health, and provide them with a stable, loving home. Of course, we do have some plans and traditions. 

We plan on eating dinner together every day. We plan on taking annual vacations. We plan on the children seeing their grandparents and uncle/aunt often, putting a priority on family gatherings over other events. Overall, we want to make sure our kids are happy, healthy, close with family, and brave enough to pursue their dreams. 

It took us a long time to get to where we are in our lives and we learned a lot on the way. We signed up for things we shouldn’t have, we made some mistakes. We became smarter because of them! Ultimately, we learned that grace, acceptance of others' experiences and empathy are the bedrocks of relationships, and ours will be no different. We don’t know you, but we can’t wait to get to know you!
