dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mother,
While we can’t imagine what you’re going through, please know how much we admire you for seeking the best possible future for your child and yourself—even a future so hard to imagine. If you choose us as adoptive mothers, both we and your child will get to experience your love every day of our lives in the incredible gift you gave all of us: each other. However much you do or don’t want to be immediately present, they will know how much we cherish their first mom, how much she loves them too, and what a gift she gave to make us a family.
We want nothing more than to give your child all the love and freedom they need to become their best self, to dream and fulfill big dreams, and to know they are loved and safe and so deeply wanted, no matter what. We can’t wait to teach our child how to plant bulbs in autumn and wait for the flowers they bring in springtime, how to bake fresh bread, how to ride a bike, how to read wonderful stories (and write their own), and how to know birds by their songs.
Thank you so much for reading what we have to say. We wish you so much love and peace as you make this journey, regardless of the decision you make. We would love to get to know you and see if we are the parents you would choose for your child.
