dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mother,
I’m humbled by your decision to give your child the best life possible. I don’t know what I can say to ease your mind or to help you decide whether my family is right for your child, but if you choose us, I can promise your child would be raised in a house full of love and laughter, in safety and peace, and with a brother for a best friend and several pets for joy. Your child would have access to education, health care, and adults who love and care for him. Additionally, I believe in encouraging a child’s interests, whether it is music, art, or sports, so your child would have the ability to pursue his passions. Your child would also be raised to know where he comes from and the incredibly selfless decision you made out of love.
I saw firsthand how overwhelming the process of adoption can be for the birthmother when I adopted Luca. I honor her by teaching Luca about her love for him and by providing as much information as she wants on Luca’s life so she never has to doubt for a second that he is thriving. I want to raise your child the same way, loving and respecting you and making sure you know your child is safe and loved with as much or as little contact as you need.
You are in my thoughts as you navigate this journey. I hope you find peace in whatever decision you reach.
