Dear Expectant Mother,

Over the past year we have thought multiple times about what we might say to you, the person considering letting us raise her child. It is difficult to put our feelings for you into words because the words that come to mind don’t feel profound enough to describe our emotions and gratitude.

We feel like we love you already and we don’t even know you yet. When we dream about meeting you for the first time, it makes us emotional. We are truly so excited to begin walking along side you in this journey. We have a great deal of admiration and respect for you.

We can’t begin to thank you enough for even just taking the time to learn about us and our life. We admire you so much for the consideration you are making and though we have not yet met, we think you are so brave, selfless, and full of unwavering love for your child. We truly can’t imagine what you have been through in making the decision to place your child for adoption. Should we be so incredibly fortunate to be chosen by you to raise your child we promise that your child will live a life with us as a family full of love, joy, laughter, growth, support, and knowing the love in the decision you made.

We often find ourselves dreaming out loud to each other about what it would be like to bring our child home and add them to our lives.

Becoming parents is something that we have talked about for a long time and is something that we want more than anything. We made the decision to adopt last year and since then have dreamt every day about what it would be like to get the call that we have been chosen to parent a child and to look into that child’s eyes for the first time. I can wholeheartedly promise you that no one will love your child as much as we will. We have a huge space in our hearts full of so much love just waiting for a child to fill it. Truly there are no words to describe what being chosen by you would mean to us. We know that we are meant to be parents and that whatever child we are blessed with will never go unloved.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking the time to consider giving us a chance to live our dream.

With Love,
Jake and Nicole

Q&A

Tell us about your home and neighborhood.

We bought our house in February of 2016 in a new, family-friendly neighborhood. It is a two-story house, with three bedrooms, an open loft and two bathrooms upstairs and downstairs. There is a laundry room, bedroom/office, bathroom and an open floor plan kitchen, dining area, living room. Our house sits on a 1/3 acre corner lot on a private dead-end road with a full front porch, two car garage, and back deck. We enjoy having friends over for BBQs, lawn games, volleyball, etc. Our house backs up to a farm to give us a private feel and great view. Our neighborhood is newer and very family-friendly. The oldest houses in the neighborhood were built in 2006 and there are new houses going up daily. We have met tons of friends in this neighborhood, most with children of all ages. We have had many friends have new children born this year and some with children in high school. Jake plays on a softball, basketball, flag football, and fantasy sports teams with his friends, and Nicole enjoys meeting the wives to watch the games, weekend lunches, hosting baby showers, and TV show watch parties!

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

Jake will definitely tell you he is most excited to teach our children to play sports! He has been involved in youth sports by coaching, umpiring, and mentoring. In fact, he even coaches the middle school baseball team in our town despite not having children of our own on it. In addition to sports, Jake looks forward to teaching our children important life lessons. Jake’s dad set a fantastic example in that and Jake learned from the best! As for education, Jake is very good at math and is a history buff and looks forward to helping on homework in the future! Nicole went to college for elementary education, so plans to utilize those skills to teach our children in all subjects. Nicole’s strong suits include science and writing and cannot wait to help on science projects. She is also very creative and will be a great creative influence on our children and partake in arts and crafts often. Nicole’s strong motherly instincts will be of great use when teaching our children to be kind to others!

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

We plan to very open with our children from a young age. We will share facts of their adoption throughout their life as they become old enough to understand each piece of information. We plan to make a scrapbook full of pictures and memories of our adoption journey to share with our child from a very young age. As they become old enough to ask questions of their own, we will be as open as possible and release any information we know! We would love to remain in contact with our birth mother through letters and pictures so that we can share updates. We also would like to be able to provide birth mother contact information to our child should they decide to reach out to their birth mother as they get older.

How will a child enrich your life?

We are so excited to begin this new chapter of our life and know that a child will enrich our lives in so many ways. We have spent our time together so far building a strong relationship and solid foundation to build a family with. We are at the point in our lives and relationship now that we are ready to fill the space we have been saving in our family for children. We cannot wait to share the love we have with our future child.
