dear expectant mother
Saying thank you does not seem like enough to express my gratitude to you. You are a strong and amazing woman bringing a gift into the world.
I look forward to showing your child what a blessing family is through love and laughter. Your child will have a home where they feel loved and safe, and he or she will be allowed to grow and develop to be the best version of themselves with support every step of the way. I am nervous about being a first-time parent, but I know I will be a great one. You have chosen a path that requires faith in yourself, and I know I can be the person whom your faith can be bestowed upon.
A dream is a wish your heart makes, a line from Cinderella, makes perfect sense to me as a way to describe our paths to adoption—the dream of sharing the love of a child and the choices that must be made that will affect their life. You are providing me with an amazing gift for which saying thank you seems so insignificant. Rest assured that your child will be cherished, will share the love and laughter of our family, and will have every opportunity to shine. I will forever be grateful for you and the dream you have given me to start a family.
