Our names are Kelsi and Soma, thank you so much for taking the time to read our letter. We admire you for your strength, courage and selflessness while you are considering the options for yourself and your child. Always know that we will teach your baby about your courage and strength. While we can’t possibly understand what you are going through, we want to assure you that your child will be loved unconditionally.
Adoption has always been in our hearts and minds as the way we would grow a family together. We have always wanted to become parents and adoption has been a part of our life plan from the start. We are at a point in our life where we are financially, emotionally, and physically ready to expand our family with the addition of a precious child. Your child will have a strong support system throughout their life consisting of immediate and extended family. They will be surrounded by a network of loving and accepting great-grandparents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins.
We can’t wait to include another family member in all of our traditions: yearly beach vacations with extended family; weekly family game nights; Thanksgiving with every food you could possibly imagine; Christmas with presents galore and being spoiled by grandparents; fun family Halloween costumes and every birthday will be a party with our friends and family. We are excited to continue our traditions and create new traditions as a family with the addition of a daughter or son.
Your child will be raised to be caring, brave, confident, tolerant, and understand that they have purpose and meaning. They will grow up with structure, but with no shortage of fun and unconditional love. We promise to promote your child’s growth through every stage of life, assisting them to learn about themselves and their own individuality. We will accept your child for who they are and who they become. We will provide a home with constant open communication, where every family member is able to talk and listen. Your child’s voice will always be heard. We will emphasize the importance of education and provide every opportunity to try sports and hobbies to discover their interests. We will celebrate every milestone and accomplishment from their first steps to their first job and even every win on a board game during family game nights.
As lovers of travel, your child will explore many states and countries every year. From mountains to oceans, they will discover the world while learning the important lessons of diversity. They will be raised to understand and accept diverse cultures, ethnicities and beliefs. Your child will be exposed to a multi-lingual home from the moment they arrive into this world, speaking Spanish, Chinese, Filipino and English.
Your child will always know that you love them. We will share your child’s story with them and they will always know how brave, strong and selfless you are. We would love to share photos and updates of your child’s growth and accomplishments with you if that is something you are comfortable with and desire.
We are so humbled and grateful that you would consider us. We promise to always be loving, compassionate and accepting parents and that your child will be given every opportunity to reach their full potential. We have an abundance of love to give in our home.
Thank you for your bravery and strength,
Kelsi and Soma
