I want to start by saying thank you – thank you for considering an adoption plan. I want you to know how much I admire you and your strength. You might be surprised to see that I am adopting as a single mother, but I want you to know that I am ready. I’ve held many titles over the years; sister, aunt, and daughter, but the one that has always been missing is mom. I have been ready to take on this role and am looking forward to the day that my dream of becoming a mother comes true. Being a mother has always been important to me, however, I have struggled with fertility issues since I was a young woman and knew that adoption was something I would be open to.
I can’t wait to share my love of family with your little one. They will be warmly welcomed into my family and I can already picture the joy they will bring to our existing holiday traditions, like visiting the local Christmas Village and driving around to see all of the Christmas decorations. My family takes yearly trips to Disney World and I can see your child’s face light up the first time they see Mickey Mouse in person. We will spend every summer with their future grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins at the Jersey shore, another one of our long-standing family traditions. I am open to any type of communication you are comfortable with so you can be a part of these special memories too whether it is through photos, updates, or yearly visits.
I come from a large family, and they are very supportive of my journey. My parents, George and Sharon, live right down the street and will be a constant in your little one’s life. My sister, Aunt Gina, is a teacher who has dedicated her life to children. She can’t wait to share her love of education, sports, and travel. I also have dear friends who are as close to me as family. Uncle Frank and Aunt Michelle are wonderful parents to my niece, Julia, and nephew, Frankie. I know they will be strong role models. Frankie and Julia can not wait to become big cousins and be there for your child every step of the way. There are so many more people in my life that are looking forward to welcoming your baby – I can guarantee you there will be no shortage of love surrounding them.
Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers as you go through this process. Your sacrifice gives women and families like me a chance to make their dreams come true. I hope you see all the love, happiness, laughter, and opportunities that I can offer. Your child will grow up knowing that they are loved and that the sky’s the limit. I want you to know that I have so much love to give a child and I promise I will encourage them, guide them, and help them make their dreams a reality.
