Dear Expectant Mother,

We want to thank you for reading our letter and hope this helps you to start to get to know us. We are in complete admiration of your consideration of adoption for your baby and view it as the ultimate act of kindness, selflessness, and love. Although we do not know you yet and what you are going through, we have genuine respect for you and wish you strength, courage, and peace. We want you to know that if you do choose us as your baby’s adoptive parents, we would always put your baby first showing, all our love and support.

When we married a long time ago, we dreamt of starting a family. We always talked about having a child and of adopting. We eventually found that we were unable to have children of our own, but hope we will be chosen as adoptive parents. Having a child will mean everything to us and to our families as well. We all cannot wait to shower a child with our love and attention and see a smile on their face every day.

We want you to know that your child would be surrounded by family that would love and adore them. They will have grandparents, aunts, uncles, and many cousins supporting and caring for them. Your child will very much enjoy being around our family and friends as they are a lot of fun, very open and accepting, and will love your child unconditionally as we will.

Your child will live in a nice home, in a great neighborhood that has outstanding schools where they will be able to feel safe and secure. We will do everything to provide them with every opportunity to pursue their dreams. We will do lots of fun activities like swimming, bike riding, skiing, and sledding. Chris is good at sports and can’t wait to teach what he knows. We will take them to see the Easter Bunny and Santa so they can take pictures with them (as long as they are not afraid). They will definitely go to Disney because every child should meet Mickey Mouse. If they decide to pursue a passion, playing a sport or creating art, we will support and encourage them to do so.

Your child will attend plenty of parties and we will celebrate their accomplishments and milestones such as birthdays and graduations. Holidays are always celebrated as well. Jen can sew and designs clothes, so she will make great Halloween costumes. At Christmas, we go all out decorating, baking, and making traditional food our parents and grandparents taught us. We hope to pass those traditions on.

We look forward to spending time together as a family just doing simple things as well, like watching movies, baking, playing hide and seek, reading a story, or hugging them when they are hurt or happy. When they are little, we will make them feel safe and loved. As they grow, we hope to teach them to have integrity, be kind, and to be healthy physically and mentally. We also want to teach them how to work hard, but smart, give guidance on how to succeed, teach them to be independent, make good decisions, and support them so they will have courage to pursue and realize their dreams. It’s our greatest wish to see your child happy and successful.

Very Truly Yours,
Jennifer & Chris

Q&A

Tell us about your home and neighborhood.

Our house is a 2-story, traditional home with plenty of space to have family and friends over. It’s a great house to play hide & seek and has plenty of room to run around and play. We also have a pretty large backyard that has lots of room for a swing set/jungle gym and one day a pool. There are a lot of parks, playgrounds, tennis and basketball courts, and trails for biking/walking in our neighborhood as well. Our neighbors are all very nice and there are lots of kids to play with, especially since we live down the street from the elementary school. The schools in our area have also been rated some of the top schools in our state with excellent teachers and great community support.

When you have a 3-day weekend, what you like to do?

We like to have fun, so we look for fun activities to do with our family and friends. We often go to the wave pool, have BBQ’s at our house, watch fireworks, go to concerts, festivals and amusement parks. We also like to travel, visit our family in Florida and Texas and always like to go to the Disney and the beach! Our city and others around us have a ton of fun events throughout the year and we like to attend them as well, like ice skating in the park, tree lighting/Ice Carving with Santa Claus at Christmas, concerts/art shows in the park in the summer.

What do you hope to teach your child(ren)?

Our number one priority will be to make our child feel secure and loved no matter what. We will teach them to be kind, but also how to be strong and navigate this sometimes difficult world so they can be happy and achieve their dreams. We will teach them to appreciate their blessings and not take things for granted. We will teach them to work hard, but also how to work smart. We will teach them to love and trust god and appreciate family and friends. We most definitely will teach them to have fun, laugh, and love because that is why life is worth living.

What will you tell your child about his or her birthmom?

We would honor the birthmom’s wishes and follow what she would want us to say. We would want to convey our feelings for her in that we are forever grateful, humbled, and how much we admire her selflessness, courage, and intelligence. We would teach her child to be forever thankful of the great gift of life and opportunities for happiness their birthmom gave to them.

Are you active in your church? Tell us about your activities.

We attend church, pray, and participate in the religious sacraments of our church such as communion/baptisms. We thank God every day for all the blessings He has given us. We have faith in God, trust in Him, and do our best to follow His teachings from the bible.

How will a child enrich your life?

Having a child will bring true purpose to our lives. We believe that the most important thing you do in life is to give love. To be able to give love and attention to a child would be the greatest gift we would ever receive and we would be forever grateful for that chance.

Describe your last vacation and/or daytrip.

We went to Florida and stayed with family for several days. We spent a lot of time in the sun and the pool relaxing with our family (got a good tan)! We also spent a few days at a Disney hotel and went to the Disney parks, then drove down to Cocoa Beach for a few days as well. We had a lot of fun, got to relax, and had a great time with our family.

Will you be a stay-at-home parent? If so, what are your day-to-day plans?

We both work. However, Jen works from home 1 or 2 days a week. Also, Jen’s mother lives with us and is retired, so she will be here when we are not. Jen’s siblings and their spouses live very close, so there will be aunts and uncles helping as well if needed and cousins to play with.

When you close your eyes and see yourself holding your precious baby in your arms, what are your thoughts regarding his or her birth mother?

I imagine that I will be thinking that I hope we can be as good and selfless as his or her birthmom and we will spend our lives putting her child first just as their birthmom did. I hope that one day the birthmom would be proud of us and be happy with how we raised this wonderful child.
