Dear Expectant Mother,
While we can never fully understand all the emotions you are currently facing, we will forever be grateful for the sacrifice you are making. We want to thank you for helping to fulfill our dreams of having a family. You are the most courageous and most brave person we will ever meet. We would like you to know that your child will have a loving home with two parents who will support them through all the good times and the times of struggle. We will do our best to raise your child to be the best person he or she can be. By choosing us and trusting us to provide your child with the best life possible, you are truly filling our hearts with joy and happiness.
Although we always knew that it was going to be a struggle to have a child of our own, we held out hope that we would be able to have children through a fertility specialist. It was one of the hardest days of our lives when we found out that would not be possible. However, it led us to this opportunity, one we are excited to have in front of us with your help. After educating ourselves more about the adoption process, we knew it was the right path for us. It brought us hope knowing that this process would help us live our dream of growing our family.
We assure you that your child will be raised in a family filled with love and support. Whether it’s family members close by, or family from across the country, they will love your child every bit as much as you. They are excited for us to start our family and are looking forward to welcoming another child into our family that they can spoil!
We will instill the best parts of ourselves in your child, whether it’s James’ work ethic or Jackie’s caring and kind personality. Our goal is to help your child be successful in every part of their life. We will ensure that they are provided with a quality education that will prepare them for their future.
At the same time, we will make sure they know where they come from and the heritage they bring. He or she will always know that you made a very courageous choice in order to give them the best life possible and for us to be fortunate enough to have a family.
We want you to know that you will always be remembered, and your gift to us will always be treasured. We can assure you that every day we will work to be better parents, better role models, and better people. We will never take the sacrifice you have made for granted.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, as we are sure you have read many of these letters. We are so happy that you have made it this far, and we can’t wait to meet you and get to know you. We want to know your story so we can make sure your child understands that you love them as much as we do.
Jackie and James
