We have talked about adoption well before we knew we wouldn’t be able to have a baby of our own. While we can’t say that we know what your feelings are, we can say that it will be an amazing and difficult process. We hope that we can convey to you that we will TRULY care for your child to the best of our abilities. We don’t pretend to understand the loss you will feel as a result of this process, but you can be assured that your child will be loved and cared for.
Our home is cozy and warm. Our pets are cozy, goofy and warm. We believe that your child will also grow up cozy, warm, and happy. At least this will be our goal for all time. He or she will never grow up without emotional, physical and financial support. We have a house and a bedroom just waiting for your baby to sleep in.
We have been together for 10 years. We have worked on ourselves and our relationship in order to provide a healthy home for ourselves and our future child. Eric has a great job and Mel takes care of the other things.
We are in our 6th year of “waiting,” which has had its ups and downs. Unfortunately we know the exact date of when we started trying for a baby; it was November 20th, 2016. Since then the process has felt like torture at times. We feel incomplete and it seems terribly unfair. That is life. We are nurturers, hoping for a little one to receive all of our attention. IVF is very hard and trying on a woman’s body; there are fights and there is physical pain, along with the crying. So much crying!
We look forward to being a part of this process with you. If we seem like a good fit for your child’s future, you can rest assured that he or she would be very loved and cared for. You would be doing something that science and technology have never been able to do, give us the family we have always desired!
We know this will be one of the hardest things you’ll probably ever do and you should know that your child will be well cared for, loved, educated, and raised in the best possible way available to us.
This letter has not been hard to write because we believe in this process and know that everything will work out. It will work out for you too, and hopefully we can be here for you as well as for your baby.
Melinda and Eric
