“All things happen for a reason.” Mike and I cannot count the number of times in the past several years that we have heard this phrase expressed by loved ones. As we are writing this letter to you, we finally understand its significance. Perhaps the reason that things have happened in all of our lives has been for us to meet. You have such an incredible gift to give. What a selfless act you are completing to place your child for adoption. We would embrace the chance to bring that gift, your child, into our home to love, care for, and cherish, all the while being eternally grateful to you, the child’s birthmother, for allowing us the opportunity to complete our family.
