There is so much to say, and finding the right words feels overwhelming. First, we want you to know how much you mean to us and how your decision to let us raise your child is truly remarkable. You would be making our dream of becoming parents a reality. "Thank you" seems much too simple to express the depth of our gratitude to you.
We want you to know that you would always have a special place in our hearts. We know that your decision to choose adoption comes from a place of love, compassion, kindness, and understanding. We look forward to building our relationship and sharing your child's milestones with you.
We want to make sure your child knows and understands their adoption story and the sacrifices you made in creating a unique opportunity for them. Your love for your child continued with the choice of adoption, and we are open to building as open a relationship with you as you desire.
We are excited about the opportunity to raise your child as part of our loving family. Taking them to the park, riding bikes, or seeing them grow in sports, music, or artistic activities are some of the things we are excited to do. One of the daily routines we look forward to is reading to them at night and tucking them in.
Both sets of our parents cannot wait to be grandparents and build a strong relationship with your child. You are also making their dreams come true. For Matt's parents, this will be their first and only grandchild. They spend part of the year in Florida and the other part with us in Colorado. Your child will get to experience both places. Carly's parents have two grandkids that live in New Jersey. They are ecstatic to have a grandchild nearby, as they live ten minutes from us, that they can spoil in ways that only grandparents can.
From the bottom of our hearts, we want to thank you again for choosing us and giving us the most incredible gift.
