dear expectant mother
We just want to say thank you. Thank you for considering us. Thank you for your selflessness. Thank you for loving your child so much that you are looking at all of your options.
We want to tell you a little story so you can understand the depth of our gratitude. Last Christmas, we went down to Cuba because Luis’s grandfather was very sick. It was Jeremy’s first time in Cuba and Luis’s first time back in the country he was born and raised in.
Our family there does not have a lot; they don’t have a car, they don’t have a fancy house, and they don’t have much money, yet they were so rich. They have neighbors who look out for them, family members who take care of each other, and food and dancing that celebrate the richness of their love. This trip was a reminder of all of the most important things in life.
Walking into a Cuban home, you kiss and hug every person in the room, and that is what we will give your baby—so much love. It is what our families gave to us as children, it's what has made us who we are today, and it is the source of all the goodness we will pour into caring for your baby. Thank you again for considering us. We hope to meet you, learn about you, and find a way to make all of our dreams come true.
