dear expectant mother
We’re the people who evolve to both the predictable and unpredictable situations thrown our way. We are not perfect people, but we are people who, when we make a promise, fight to keep that promise. We made a promise to Justin’s birthparents that we would always do what was best for his well being and his safety, and the same promise will be made to you. We understand life throws us for a loop at times and we have to make tough decisions. Neither of us has been in your exact shoes, but we will absolutely be there for you just as much as we will be there for your child if you choose us. Our relationship with you does not end at placement. You are as important to this family as your child is.
Know that we accept you through the good, the bad, the ups, and the downs. There are no late phone calls, weird questions, or too blunt conversation for us. You are as equally important in our life as your baby. We dream of you being able to experience holidays, dinners, special events, and regular phone calls, and being a part of this family in whatever capacity you feel comfortable. If you tell us you need space, we’ll give you space. We want you to feel that not only does your baby have a safe place and fun memories but so do you. We thoroughly enjoy and respect those we encounter who share the belief that real interactions are made when we are comfortable with being ourselves.
