Dear Expectant Mama,
Our names are Kasey and Ricky and we’re so incredibly humbled you are taking the time to get to know us. We can’t begin to imagine the magnitude of the selfless decision you are making in considering adoption for your child. But we want you to know that your decision will make our world complete in its entirety. We admire your strength and bravery as you navigate this journey. We are here for you, always.
In our home, you will forever be cherished in our eyes and in the eyes of your child. You will be honored and celebrated each day of your child’s life as we share your story. You will be supported, loved, and prayed for daily. You will always be a part of our family.
Most importantly, your child will be loved unconditionally by us, our family, our friends, and of course, Scarlet and Patton, our sweet pups. They will be supported endlessly through life’s greatest adventures, and life’s ups and downs. They will learn to love big, to be kind, and enjoy life to the fullest. Our home will forever be filled with happiness, love, belly laughs, and endless amounts of bear hugs.
Our journey to parenthood has been incredibly difficult for us both. We have endured the immense pain of losing five babies along the way, with our most recent, sweet Bowie, who was born in May at 22 weeks due to complications with Kasey’s pregnancy. Last summer we lost our sweet Remy, who was stillborn at 25 weeks. We have never felt so much happiness and sadness all at once and we never expected hello and goodbye to be on the same day. They are so special to us and will always be a part of who we are as a family. They are forever our inspiration in all that we do. We are beyond blessed to call them ours. We will continue to honor their legacy through The Remy and Bowie Krew Foundation. Our foundation will provide memory boxes to local hospitals in memory of our sweet boys. The boxes will be given to families going through a loss. It’s our hope that these boxes will provide the families with a little bit of light during days of darkness.
We know that the path that led you to this choice could not have been easy for you, but know that you are loved and brave beyond words. We are incredibly grateful that you would consider us as parents to raise your child. Thank you for helping make our dreams come true in growing our family. We look forward to the day when we will meet you and share our unconditional love with you and your sweet baby.
Ricky and Kasey
