Dear Expectant Mother,
I cannot tell you how proud and grateful I am for your consideration of adoption. You are very courageous to make this selfless decision. If it helps, I can promise you that, every day, I will strive to fill your child’s life with love, compassion, gentleness, and patience. I will teach your child to be loving and understanding of other people, and I will teach your child about God, and I will give them a great education and a wonderful family.
I look forward to sharing so many of my family traditions with your child, such as decorating a Christmas tree after Thanksgiving dinner or spending our Fourth of July having cookouts and popping fireworks.
I thank you for taking the time to consider me as a parent. This is the greatest gift and blessing that I could ever receive in life. I hope we will have an opportunity to talk and share some ideas for raising your wonderful child. I offer you my prayers and support through this time and look forward to this bond that we will share for life.
I love to laugh and make others happy. I reside in a southern state in a large city with my two dogs. At work, I am a claims supervisor for a very large insurance company, and for the past four years, I have been a parent to foster children. In the past, I have also been a volunteer for the Special Olympics. I love taking vacations and traveling to new places, and more than anything I enjoy spending time with my family, who live in a nearby town. In my spare time, I also like going to movies and reading biographies or suspense books. My motto in life is to never waste time being angry and to make the most of every day.
My home is a labor of love, as I built it myself eight years ago. It is a lovely three bedroom, two bath home with a large fenced-in backyard and which comes with two female Shih Tzus who have lots of love to share. I live in a great neighborhood (with neighbors that give the best treats at Halloween!), and I even have wonderful friends next door who are like grandparents to me. Our community is always filled with festivals and outdoor activities that I look forward to sharing with your child.
My Extended Family
My parents, sister, and her husband live in a small town only twenty miles from me, and my brother, his wife, and their five-year-old daughter live in California, so we often travel there to visit. I have a large extended family that also lives nearby. I love spending time with them, and we love having family gatherings; whether it be gathering at my home to watch the Superbowl or all of us sitting together for a Thanksgiving feast, my family are the best, most supportive people to be around. They are all very musical, so it is often that someone will play the piano, another on guitar, and everyone else singing along.
My entire family has always been very receptive to each child in my home, especially my parents; they cannot wait to welcome your child into our loving home.
What Led Me To Adoption
I started my adoption journey over six years ago, when I began to think about how I wanted to make an impact in someone else’s life. I was a foster parent for the past four years but never had the opportunity to adopt any of the children I fostered; that’s why I believe being a foster parent has been the best part of my life, but has also brought me some of the most pain, to let these children go. This journey has led me to this desire to adopt a child in infancy and start my own family. Having two different co-workers adopt children, I have seen the joy that adoption brings into the lives of others, and I am thrilled to become a mother.
