Dear Expectant Mother,

We can only imagine what you are feeling, and we would be honored to help you go through this journey and provide some comfort. Whether you choose us or another family, in our eyes you are a strong, brave individual for making this difficult decision. If we are lucky enough to be chosen by you, we will love your baby unconditionally. Together, we can create a loving environment where your baby will be given emotional and financial support and, of course, unconditional love to help him/her be the best person he/she can be.

Our names are RJ and Elle. We met at RJ’s sister’s wedding and got along from the start. We feel that our meeting was destined because so many things had to go right for us to meet. Elle had to become good friends with her best friend’s friend, Jenn, that Jenn invited Elle to her wedding. Then at Jenn’s wedding, Elle had to meet and become good friends with RJ’s sister, Genevieve, that Genevieve invited Elle to her wedding. Finally, on the day of Genevieve’s wedding, Elle’s best friend, Jo, had to get sick so that Elle would attend the wedding by herself. Each of these events had to occur for us to meet and we’ve been together ever since. Almost five years now. From the beginning, we have always talked about growing our family. When we discovered that we couldn’t conceive, we felt that God must have something else planned for us. This is where our journey to become parents begins. We will make awesome parents! More than anything we want to share our lives and home with a baby. We are easy-going with strong-rooted family values and love to have fun. Our free time is spent with our families, our dog, Quinn, and our friends. Aside from playing with Quinn and taking care of our house, we enjoy time with loved ones going on vacations, sharing family meals, or simply relaxing over must-see movies. We both enjoy action and comedies, but RJ loves scary movies, which Elle refuses to watch. Elle jumps at every little noise.

Our families are very supportive and live close by. In fact, Elle’s parents are super excited for a baby since this will be their first grandbaby. RJ’s family, including his niece and nephew, are excited too! There’s no doubt that your child will be spoiled with love, hugs, and kisses. RJ’s mom loves to cook, and we are often at his parents’ house for family gatherings. She makes the best Filipino tamarind soup called sinigang. Hmm, yummy! Elle’s family enjoys family trips to places such as Seattle, San Diego and Disney World. Our next trip might be somewhere in Asia to celebrate Elle’s parents’ 50th Anniversary. We can’t wait to share our family trips and gatherings with a child. Besides family gatherings, your child will be surrounded by friends and playmates when we host our yearly holiday parties. We enjoy hosting Easter and Christmas parties the most because they are most fun! Watching the faces of our families and our friends’ kids light up when they hunt for Easter eggs or open Christmas presents is priceless. They truly make our hearts smile.

You can be certain that we would be the parents who will take your child for walks around parks and trails, go on playdates and attend school functions and sporting events. We’ll read to him/her, encourage their likes and passions, and be attentive without being overbearing. We will be parents that will jump up and down with excitement while cheering him/her play sports or other activities. We’ll go to hobby stores looking for arts and crafts. We will be the most supportive parents a child can ask for! Besides being ready to be fun parents, we are also emotionally stable, financially prepared and are willing to devote ourselves to giving your child all the attention and care he/she needs. We are ready to open our hearts and home to a bundle of joy. We really hope you choose us. But no matter what, we wish you and your baby the very best! Thank you for reading our letter. We hope to hear from you soon.

With our greatest respect,
RJ and Elle

Q&A

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

When we have a 3-day weekend, we like to split the weekend catching up our chores, visiting family and friends or taking a day trip or attending an event.

Do you have pets? If so, tell us about them.

Yes, we have an 18-month-old Rottweiler, Pit and Boxer mix name Quinn that we adopted at 2 months old. She’s a very smart pup that makes us laugh with her antics. She enjoys playing hide and seek and tag. We pretend to catch her by surprise by walking up to her slowly even though she can see us then she’ll start wagging her tail and we’ll all run around the house. She is very smart and quickly learned her basic commands. She knows sit, stay, shake hands, come, and heel. Also, she knows the commands to go to her crate and to stay on her mat. She is well socialized since she was 4 months old. She’s had group training and private classes. She loves going to day care twice a week to play with her friends.

What do you hope to teach your child?

We hope to teach our child to reach his/her potential, be happy, kind, compassionate and to never stop being curious about what life has to offer.

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

Foremost, we will tell the child that his/her birthmom loved him/her very much and that she did what she can to provide the very best. We will share with the child any messages the birthmom would like to pass on.

How will a child enrich your life?

A child can bring more joy, love, laughter into our lives. Our daily lives will be an adventure. Having a child of our own will help us grow as couple and as individuals by testing our patience, increasing our problem-solving skill, and helping us move beyond our comfort zones. A child can bring as inspiration to be and do better.

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

When we first bring the baby home, we will take turns staying home with the baby. Elle can stay home for 6 months and then RJ will take time off from work for baby bonding. Elle’s parents are retired and can help watch your baby, and RJ will work fewer hours since his job is flexible.

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?

We’ll pray that the birth mom is doing well and we hope she feels secure that her child is loved and being cared for by good people. We’ll pray that she is given peace knowing that she did the best she can for her child. Finally, we’ll thank God and the birth mom for giving us the most precious gift we can ever dream of.
