Let us begin by telling you that what you are undertaking is the greatest gift of love you can give a child. As we sit and try to write this letter to you, we are overwhelmed by what to say. There is so much to say and a single letter can hardly convey our thoughts. We do need to tell you things we hope you already know; you are courageous and inspiring, selfless and honorable. We are in awe of your decision to give the child you are carrying the best that you can. Your decision reflects your belief that there is much more to being a parent than simply having a child and this is also our belief. Being a parent to us means unconditional love, unwavering support, laughter, hugs, bedtime stories, being there through the good and the bad, no matter what. Many people idealize parenthood. We do as well, but as parents to our infant son, we also recognize from first hand experience that it is hard work. It is, in fact, the most important job there is.
