Dear Expectant Mother,
As I try to find the words to express the immense and indescribable gratitude I feel for the gift you are considering bestowing on me, I cannot help but be humbled. So first I’ll say a heartfelt thank you for seeing the potential in me of someone who would be good for your baby. Second, I am deeply moved by your willingness to bless my life. I have always known that I wanted to be a mother. At times, I have wondered if motherhood was only a dream, but there were paths I needed to travel and lessons I needed to learn first. I feel as though all those roads led me here, to you and to your child.
My dreams have changed from those of longing for a child to something much more tangible. I imagine all the things we will learn together. I can’t wait to introduce music as an outlet of communication and expression. I hope to share my love of fantasy, of all that can be imagined through books. I’m especially excited to introduce this baby to all the people that have loved me throughout my life. I’m certain they will demonstrate every day the power of unconditional love and support. I hope that the home I’m offering brings a sense of peace and belonging and love in a world that often seems short of those things.
I hope that we will share a lifelong bond over our shared love of this life.
I work in clinical research and have spent the last fourteen years working my way up to a leadership position. The simplest explanation of my role is that I’m a problem solver, and I enjoy it. I began doing my current role almost a year ago, and I have grown immensely in that time. I’ve discovered skill sets I didn’t know I had and have developed a level of patience that has proved invaluable. My work is often challenging, but it gives me a sense of pride in what I can accomplish. And I know that my small part in a much larger picture is helping to improve other people’s lives, sometimes even saving them.
I share a home with my mom and sister and our pets. The three of us do everything together and are very much looking forward to adding a new member to the family. My mom is a very creative individual and can do almost anything, from small home renovations to playing piano or guitar. Her love of music was definitely passed on to me. We have a wall of guitars and other instruments on our living room wall. I am so excited to introduce my baby to music! Our neighborhood has lots of young families, which is exciting. We also have a neighborhood pool, and I am a member of our local YMCA, which has lots of activities for kids to explore.
My Extended Family
My mom’s side is small, but we love each other dearly. My grandparents instilled a great deal of pride and tradition in us. I always loved holidays at their house. My grandmother would make every sweet, delicious thing, and we worked on puzzles in between cooking. She also made knitted stockings for us. We still use them, and my mom makes them now for new additions.
My dad’s side is larger and a wonderful mix of personalities. It always fascinates me how we can all be so similar and yet different. I have several cousins with children too, so I can’t wait for my child to grow up with them. One of my favorite family traditions was when we’d trade names at Christmas for presents. It was always entertaining to try guessing what was inside. I was never right!
I must include my friends in my extended family as well because that’s what they are to me. I have a small group who have been tireless supporters in my adult life. They’ve been an absolute blessing in my life daily, and I know that will be extended to my child.
What Led Me To Adoption
I always knew I’d have a family. I always thought I’d get there through more traditional means, but I always knew I would. When I reached a point in my life where I felt I was prepared emotionally and financially to take that step, I realized I had to find an alternative way to accomplish that. I looked into trying to conceive via medical intervention, but it just wasn’t the right path for me. I couldn’t be more excited to take this step into motherhood. I’m looking forward to the challenges and the joys of a child, of teaching him or her and watching him or her thrive. It's going to be a wild ride, and I can’t wait!
