Dear Expectant Mother,
Thank you for your strength. We can’t imagine the courage it takes to complete this selfless act, but we would be honored to provide this child with a safe, happy, loving home. We understand we are just one part of this child’s development that and it takes many people to raise a healthy, well-adjusted child. Although we are unaware of your current situation, we hope this situation creates a bond between us that can result in the child growing up and understanding exactly who they are and where they come from.
We have dreamed of having a child for over eight years, and we could not be more excited to have started this process and to be engaging with you. We must mention that we aren’t the only ones who are excited. Your child will be welcomed with open arms by his or her grandparents, aunts and uncles, several cousins, and a large circle of friends anxiously awaiting his or her arrival. Our open hearts are ready to provide unconditional love through every step of development.
We will do everything we can to ensure your child is set up for success. It is important for us to be not only parents, but also role models. We are committed to creating an environment that allows your child to flourish in relationship-building, education, and self-confidence. We feel truly blessed to be considered for this very important decision.
We met twelve years ago in a chance encounter on a staircase and have been inseparable ever since. Although we met as individuals entering nervously into a relationship, we have become each other’s best friend. Our relationship has developed into a love which inspires us to reach further and accomplish our dreams. Michael is a very focused and dedicated Human Resources Executive, while Bobby enjoys his Finance career. Outside of work, we make sure to have fun by staying active in our local community, exploring the world around us, and laughing with our friends and family. We feel lucky to have enjoyed different experiences, but we are now ready to invite a new member into our family whom we can put above everything else.
We are excited to be living in a historic neighborhood, in a home right across the street from a beautiful 30-acre park. The neighborhood is one where we greet neighbors by name, and the park hosts a large playground, a stocked lake, and several activities, including summertime concerts and movies. We live with a very affectionate cat named Lillie, who loves to meet new people and play in our private backyard.
Our Extended Family
We were both raised in large Christian families, and we remain very close. Our holidays are spent with our extended families, and we enjoy eating large meals, reminiscing about old times, and laughing about memories. We really enjoy focusing most of our attention on the kids and love showering them with attention.
In the last year, we have moved much closer to our family, which means we regularly find ways to meet for dinner or attend a local activity together. We attend as many of the kids’ sporting events and school plays as we can. Our favorite thing to do is invite all of our nieces and nephews to our house for a slumber party, where we make personal pizzas, play hide and seek, and watch movies.
What Led Us To Adoption
Michael came from an adopted family, where both he and the sister he grew up with were adopted from different families. Although in those days, adoptions were typically closed, Michael’s parents were always very open about the fact that he was adopted and shared what they knew about his birth parents. A few years ago, his biological sister found him through a private investigator and let him know that although the decision for their mother to put him up for adoption wasn’t easy and she thought about him all the time, she was sure it was the right decision until the day she died. From that point on, Michael’s love for his birth mother’s decision was so overwhelming that we both knew adopting a child was the only option we would consider in building our family.
