dear expectant mother

Dear Expectant Mother,

We are so grateful you are here. We know you are making an incredibly difficult decision. We would be truly honored to support you as you make that choice for you and your baby, and we thank you so much for being here today.

Parenthood is something we have been dreaming about for as long as we can remember, and this dream is not just ours but one our entire families share. We can promise that your baby will be lifted up by love from every direction throughout their whole life. With us, your baby will learn self-love, courage, and kindness. We will take family trips to the beach every summer, read stories every night before bed, and spend every day growing and learning together.

Your consideration means so much to us, whatever the result. We have worked very hard to get here and have been looking forward to this chance for so long. We believe whatever choice you make is the right one. We are happy and proud to be part of your journey, and if you choose us, we will share those feelings with your child as well.

About Us

We have been life partners and best friends for ten years, since we were 18 years old. Kate is an English teacher at our neighborhood’s public high school, and Andrew is a data scientist at a prominent research university. We love watching sitcoms and sci-fi, hanging out with our cats, and taking trips to the beach with family. We work well as a couple because we are both introverts who value staying true to ourselves and always seeking to do the right thing, and we just really enjoy each other’s company. After ten years together, we can still just talk for hours every day.

Our Home & Pets

We are so grateful for our home here in the city. We live in a two-story house with a fenced-in backyard and the kindest neighbors. We have three indoor cats and care for multiple outdoor cats as well. In our backyard garden, we grow broccoli, garlic, and daffodils. We are environmentally minded and love living in a city where we can walk everywhere. Just around the corner from us are great schools, libraries, parks, and youth programs. Kate in particular is very proud to live in the neighborhood where she teaches and knows how hard teachers are working to do right by the children in our community.

Our Extended Family

Our families are large, diverse, and tight-knit. To Kate, her sisters (aged 24 and 14) are everything. Her life changed and her purpose was found at 14 years old when her baby sister was born. Caring for that baby (though not a baby anymore!) has been the center of her world, and that little girl can’t wait to be an aunt.

Our whole family is looking forward to documenting our child’s life with endless scrapbooks, photo albums, and home videos and taking our child down the shore to catch crabs in the lagoon and learn to swim in the pool. We’ll visit extended family in New Jersey, Maine, Florida, California, Virginia, and Michigan. Additionally, our child will have multiple family members who were also adopted, who are excited to be role models and a support for them.

What Led Us To Adoption

Both of us have known that adoption would be our path to parenthood since before we even met. We both have family members who were adopted when we were kids, and being so close to them has been a huge inspiration to go on this journey. We are proud to be part of a family that has been built in so many different ways, and we are so excited to grow our family.
