dear expectant mother
No matter how you end up reading this letter, whether you pick us or not, we want you to know you’re loved and we admire you. We honor your choice and would consider it the greatest privilege and responsibility if you were to choose us to love your baby. We acknowledge your journey and how it could allow us to become mothers. We chose the open adoption option to ensure the door is open for whatever role you want to play, at any level you’re comfortable with. If you choose us, we will never be able to say thank you enough for the gift you’re giving.
We expect that whatever is next, although it may be hard, the outcome will be full of love. We feel equally prepared and scared, excited and nervous, but we know the result is more family. We are confident this baby will be safe, supported, loved, and accepted, and we hope that any time you think about them, you know these are all true. Brittany is excited to teach the baby everything about music and Pixar movies, and Taylor is excited to read to them every night and teach them how to cook. We can’t wait to have weekend adventures and create a life full of laughter, dancing, singing, and all that life throws our way.
We, our families, and our faith community are thinking of you. We hope we get the opportunity to meet you and say thank you in person.
