dear expectant mother
First, thank you for your strength and courage. Thank you for your miracle. And thank you for considering us as parents for your child.
We would never presume to know what you are going through and can only imagine some of the questions and uncertainties you may have. While we cannot know all the future holds, there are some things we do know. This is our promise to you:
Your child will live and grow in a home filled with smiles and laughter, singing and dancing, kindness and generosity. Your child will be part of a family. Your child will be raised to value honesty, integrity, hard work, and humility. Your child will be raised to be a good person. Your child will be given every opportunity to succeed and grow into the person they are meant to be. Your child will be supported and encouraged through successes, failures, and everything in between. Your child will want for nothing. Your child will be safe. Your child will have adventures big and small. Your child will be taught that mistakes are an opportunity to learn. Your child will be taught that life in all of its shapes, sizes, and shades is precious. Most of all, your child will be loved unconditionally and without question.
We cannot even begin to express our gratitude for you. We are humbled and awed by your courage and strength. Thank you, from the warmest places in our hearts.
