dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mother,
Thank you for considering me to raise your baby. I promise to honor you by loving, caring for, and nurturing the child you bring into this world. Please know that I will do my absolute best to raise this little one to be a person who knows they are loved by two moms. With any level you are comfortable with, I would love for your baby to know her roots, including you and your family.
I used to think there actually was a parenting manual. I would question some of my own mom’s answers, and she would tell me, “It’s in the mothers handbook, page 143.” I think she used page 143 at least 50 times during my childhood! It wasn’t until I was a lot older that I realized there is no handbook and no perfect way of being a parent. I have no doubt there will be times when I mess up as a mom. However, I will not be the type of parent who can’t admit that to their child; I will choose to be the type of mom who can say, “I messed up. Please forgive me.” I had a phenomenal mom as an example of what unconditional love and support look like and am so fortunate I can provide this type of foundation to your baby, if you choose me.
I am so grateful for you and your consideration of me to raise your child. If chosen, I will use my life honoring the decision you made to give this child life!
