dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mother,
We want to start by saying we empathize with you and the difficult decision you’re making for you and your baby. We want you to feel as comfortable as possible. We hope to share with you that we will never lack the love and support needed as parents, with the constant need for your child’s health and happiness.
Our own parents were not perfect, but they were able to give us the freedom to discover new things and explore beyond our dreams while still providing us the security that they were always right there. That balance is what we bring to our own relationship and something we plan to bring to our child’s life. We have taken risks together, supported each other when taking on new challenges, or simply picked up the slack around the house when one has had a long day. We know we’ve been able to try all these things because we have each other. We want our child to know they, too, can explore the world, take risks, and know we’ll always be right there to celebrate every win and pick them up should they ever fall short.
We understand this is a complicated decision for you and wish you nothing but peace in your decision. We would be humbled to receive your trust to grow and expand our family, allowing us to share traditions we’ve built together. We are grateful to you for taking the time to learn more about our journey, and we wish you well in yours.
Greg and Garrett
