dear expectant mother
I have been waiting a long time to write this letter, and now there seem to be no words to express my gratitude. Thank you for reading this, and for considering adoption for your baby. I want you to know I have prayed for you for years, and have prayed for your tiny baby. I cannot imagine the feelings you must be having now. I'm not going to pretend I know what you're feeling, because I don't. I'll never be able to have biological children, but that's okay with me because adoption has always been my first choice. I think that adoption is so beautiful. To have two families that love a baby so much is amazing to me.
I live in a small town in Indiana, and it's a great place to raise a family. I grew up here. I live here with my two sweet dogs that just adore children. I have a wonderful family that is such a blessing to me. We have lots of fun family times and traditions, and everyone is so excited about adding a miracle baby to our crew! This baby is already so loved!
When I think of being a mother, what I long for is being able to provide love and safety to a child for the rest of my life. I promise that this child will grow up knowing you, and how much their first mother loves them. I cannot wait for the days of hearing a first word, teaching them to write, helping them learn how to pray, building forts in the living room, sitting with flashlights during thunderstorms and making up scary stories, baking cookies, hanging out with the family and going fishing, having bonfires and making s’mores, and tucking them into bed at night and telling them how amazing they are, and what a strong person they will grow up to be. I want to teach independence, confidence, and most of all integrity and faith.
I am going to continue to pray for you as you make such a brave and selfless decision. Should you decide to choose me as the adoptive parent of your child, I want you to feel such peace and comfort, and much confidence in your decision to pick me. I look forward to getting to know you on this very special journey.
