dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mother,
We truly appreciate the time you’re taking and thought you’re giving to going down the path of adoption for your baby. The time and energy you are putting in now doesn’t go unnoticed and won’t be forgotten.
If you already have children or if you’ve ever been around children, a common question you hear from kids is “Why?” While the whys can get annoying to most parents, there are families like ours that are ready to take on the challenge of answering all the whys your baby will have in their life. Here are a few whys we’re ready to answer for our future child:
Why is it important to treat others with kindness and respect?
Why is it important to learn about other cultures?
Why is it important to value family?
Why is it important to learn new skills?
Why is it important to try new things?
Why is it okay to fail?
Why is it important to be true to yourself no matter what?
Finally, a question I’m sure you’ve thought about your baby asking their adoptive parents: “Why did my birthmom choose adoption?” This is something we’d happily answer with your personal story honoring the choice you’re making if you give us the chance to hear it.
