dear expectant mother

Dear Expectant Mother,

We have been praying about and dreaming of becoming Mothers for years. We can only imagine all of the thoughts going through your head right now. Like any Mother, you want what’s best for your baby and for them to grow up in a loving family that will protect them, provide for them, and ensure they know they are loved unconditionally. We are that family. As lesbians that grew up in conservative households, we know how important it is for children to be loved unconditionally and to be supported in their path of life no matter what choices they make.

Should you choose to bless us with the ultimate gift, you can rest assured that we have the support system, the financial means and unconditional love that every child needs for a healthy upbringing.

We are committed to supporting you throughout this process and can ensure you both have all that you need. Our promise to you is that your baby will grow up in a loving, safe environment where they understand that the sky’s the limit for who they become. Letters are great, but we’d love to speak with you if you like what you’ve seen and read so far, so please don’t hesitate to reach out if you’d like to learn more about us at any level you’re comfortable with.

Sincerely,
Talisha and Mysty

Should you choose to bless us with the ultimate gift, you can rest assured that we have the support system, the financial means and unconditional love that every child needs for a healthy upbringing.

About Us

We are Mysty and Talisha, nice to meet you! We met 6 years ago through a mutual friend and had the “heart eyes” for each other immediately! In October 2017 on a beautiful Fall day, we were married and have enjoyed being on this journey of everlasting love. We have a number of shared hobbies such as our deep love for the arts, music, sports, traveling, and great food. Your child will be raised in an environment of diversity, inclusion, acceptance and love. We will encourage them to explore in a fun, safe environment where they’ll grow up to understand the value of generosity, self worth and compassion. We’d love nothing more than for you to reach out, get to know us and feel our passion around Motherhood and family.

You are a brave and courageous person, and we very much look forward to supporting and building a relationship with you. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if our profile peaks your interest!

Our Home & Pets

Our home is located in a very walkable neighborhood that has a bounty of bike trails, playgrounds and restaurants. This fosters a great sense of community in the area we live. On the weekends, we love to grab coffee from the local shop and walk to the dog park with Kingston. Kingston is our 9 year old Boston terrier who loves to play tug of war and chase squirrels! We love that our community has so many open air parks and community events within walking distance because it’s a great way for us to exercise and socialize with our neighbors. We are so excited to bring the baby to meet the other kids in the neighborhood and enjoy all of the outdoor adventures.

Our Extended Family

We are very family-oriented people and love spending holidays and special occasions with our extended family. Talisha has an older brother, and her Mom and Dad have been married for 43 years! Her brother is happily married with a son and twin girls. Mysty has two younger sisters and an older brother. Her brother and sister are married with 5 kids between them, and her youngest sister has a newborn son. Both sets of our parents are extremely involved grandparents and they take active roles in the kids' day-to-day activities.

They are so excited to welcome new grandkids into the family, and everybody is looking forward to the expansion. One of our favorite family traditions is cheering each other on through sports and performing arts. These things give us so many opportunities to laugh, celebrate and cheer each other on while spending quality time. No one ever misses a graduation, championship game or dance recital because we all support each other and love any opportunity to get together. Many of our other traditions involve birthday and holiday gatherings with singing, dancing and lots of food for everyone to catch up and enjoy.

What Led Us To Adoption

Talisha’s Dad is adopted. Mysty has (2) Aunts that are adopted and her Mom has custody of her teenage cousin. So, the concept of someone trusting and blessing you with their child is something that is deeply rooted in us. As a lesbian couple, we had obstacles in getting pregnant and began seeking solutions through IVF and IUI type reproductive procedures. We went through several, expensive procedures that resulted in a miscarriage at ten weeks. It was a very traumatic and painful ordeal. After healing from that, we decided to completely pivot and accelerate a long-time goal of adoption. We believe adoption is our destiny, and that these life experiences have prepared us for this exact moment in time.
