dear expectant mother
Words cannot express our gratitude for you taking the time to consider adoption for your child. It takes a great deal of courage, strength, and selflessness. We admire you and are truly humbled that you may allow us to become parents.
As you make this difficult decision, we want to make you a few promises. As adoptive parents, we want to make sure that your child knows who he or she is and where he or she comes from. We will speak of both his or her birth and adoptive family regularly. We will work to maintain and educate your child about the traditions and culture of his or her birth family. Though a child is becoming a part of our family and our traditions, we never want your child to forget where he or she came from.
Love, family, and learning are three values we will work hard to teach to your child. Adopting a child is something we have desired for a long time, and we will work hard to ensure that your child knows love. That love will not only come from us as parents, but your child will have a large extended family that is excitedly awaiting his or her arrival. In experiencing love, family, and life, your child will have good and bad days. We believe that every experience is one we can learn from. As a family, we will laugh, cry, and grow together as we navigate this journey called life.
Finally, we want to thank you. We cannot imagine how difficult this decision is for you. We want to thank you for helping to make our dream of being parents come true. Please know we will work hard to raise your child to be an individual that knows and loves his or her adoptive and biological family.
