We sincerely hope that this letter finds you well and happy. Although we are writing to you with loving anticipation to begin our family, we do have one small confession: we have sat down to write this letter many times. However, ironically, each time we have ended up staring at deleted words on the page. What was holding us up was we wanted to find the perfect words and the flawless sentences that would describe our admiration for you. However, we realized that it is difficult to put into words the courageous and unselfish act that you have chosen. It is overwhelming when we imagine the love that you have for your child. And, although we can never comprehend what you have gone through these past months as you have made your difficult decision, please realize that adoption is a loving gift that you are giving to someone.
