dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mother,
Thank you so much for considering me to love, raise and cherish your precious child. What you are doing for your baby is the epitome of bravery and selflessness. Although our lives don’t always end up the way we hoped, I want you to know that if you choose me, your baby will be safe, supported, and loved immensely as a part of my family.
I would not be here today, writing this letter to you, if it were not for adoption. Seventy-six years ago, another expectant mother made the ultimate sacrifice for her child and entrusted her baby’s care to an adoptive family. That baby was my mom. Your child will have a grandmother who can share her experiences and offer a special type of guidance that only another adopted child can provide. You are, and will always be, an incredibly important part of this child’s story, and you will be in their heart always. I will strive to cultivate confidence and purpose so they always know how special they are. I hope it provides comfort to know your child will be surrounded by love every day.
As you make the difficult decision about what is best for you and your baby, please know I will be praying for you. I hope you will find strength, courage, and peace as you continue through this process. I would be honored to have the opportunity to be part of your journey.
