Dear Beautiful Expectant Mother,
Thank you for considering this road and for considering us. We admire the selfless act of love you’re showing and will continue to for all the years to come. We respect, honor, and cherish you. This will be shown to your baby all their life if you decide to entrust us with them. We hope you’ll find peace in your heart knowing that we will do everything to provide a happy life filled with love and stability.
We are Jim and Caitlin. We have been together for 8 years and married for 4. We grow deeper in love with each other as the years go on. Before we were even married we knew we wanted to adopt at least 1 child whether we had biological children or not. Naturally, we’ve always wanted children and tried every which way to get pregnant. Even though we were unsuccessful, we persevered and relied on each other. It made our marriage even stronger. The important thing is, through trial and tribulation that life brings all of us, we learned and laughed and loved. This is a type of resilience and joy we will teach your baby through their life as well.
We are excited to show your child everything life has to offer. We look forward to taking them fishing and camping with our families. Playing with their cousins on weekends on holidays. Watching them learn cooking and baking skills. Making Christmas cookies, trick or treating, Easter egg hunting, and watching fireworks every 4th of July. Walking Hachi and Holly, our huskies. Playing whatever sports they are interested in and learning how to play music from Jim on the guitar and Caitlin on the piano. Enjoying Hawaii, which has become our favorite place to vacation. Most of all, we are excited to show them an unconditional, unlimited, amount of love, compassion, and happiness.
We want to honor your wishes throughout this process and your child's upbringing. Whatever that looks like, we are here with open hearts, open minds, and open arms to have any conversations about it. If a closed adoption is what you need, we will honor you and empathize with what you believe is best. You know best. If an open adoption is what you’d like, we welcome it! It’s up to you, in your time of need. Just know, no matter what this looks like for you, you can rest assured that you will be the angel in all of our lives. You’ll be talked about regularly. Your child will always know you as their mother who grew them in her belly.
Be kind to yourself through this. Please know, you’re our hero.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you,
Jim & Caitlin
