Dear Expectant Mother,
I can’t imagine the thoughts and feelings you must be experiencing. I am so humbled by your kindness, generosity, and selflessness, and I want you to know that I admire your strength and courage and the incredible love you already have for your baby by considering this most difficult decision.
I want you to know I would be honored to be the mother of your child. I promise you your child will grow up knowing of the amazing gift you gave him or her. I will provide a loving home that is stable and safe, and I will make sure your child has every opportunity for an excellent education, a solid foundation in faith, and memorable family vacations. Growing up, there was always a family camping trip on the lake in the summer, and I would love for your child to be able to grow up experiencing that as well. I am also a baker in my spare time, and I am very excited to share that passion with your child.
I look forward to getting to know you and talking about your hopes and dreams for your child. I truly am grateful for you, because without you, this whole process would not be possible.
I am a kind, compassionate, and caring Christian woman. I work in the business office of a major health care system, and I have a very close-knit family and circle of friends that I enjoy spending time with. I enjoy reading mystery novels, quilting, knitting, and doing word puzzles, and when I get the urge to spend time outdoors I enjoy taking my two beagles for walks at local parks and hiking trails, as well as going on bike rides. One of my favorite thing to do with family is our traditional camping trips: something about getting away and being with the people you love (and who love you!) always puts me at peace!
I live in a one-story rambler at the end of a cul-de-sac in a family-friendly neighborhood. Living in the Pacific Northwest allows for a wide variety of activities, such as all of the walking trails and bike paths, as well as various lakes and rivers that are nearby. I live in a small community near a large city, so I certainly have the best of both worlds. I am excited for your child to discover and learn about the forests and water systems as well as be able to experience plays and concerts in the city.
My Extended Family
My immediate family consists of my mom, my step-dad, and my sister. We all live in the same town, so we’re able to spend a lot of time together. My extended family includes one aunt, who lives nearby, and a cousin who lives thirty minutes away. We all get together once a month at my grandparents’ house to spend the day together and connect as a family. My family is very supportive of my decision to adopt and is a huge support system for me and my future family.
My favorite tradition is Christmas morning. We all meet at my grandparents’ house on Christmas morning, and we all pitch in to help with meal preparation; once everyone is done eating, we open presents! We then relax and just enjoy each other’s company for the rest of the day. I also do a lot of Christmas baking, and I can’t wait for your child to experience this magical time of year surrounded by peace and love.
What Led Me To Adoption
I have always known that God intended for me to be a mother. I always expected it would happen the traditional way (meet a guy, fall in love, get married, and have children), but that has not been my path. I have done a lot of praying and soul-searching, and I truly believe now is the time to start my family: I was truly meant to be a mom through adoption. My mom has always said that being a mother is her biggest joy, and she has been hugely supportive of my decision to adopt.
