Dear Expectant Mom,

We never imagined writing this letter, and can’t imagine your experience reading it. While we don’t know you, we already feel as if we know some things about who you are! Your willingness to consider this option tells us you are brave, selfless, courageous, and compassionate. We know that whatever you decide you will do so with great consideration, great care, and great promise.

We would feel absolutely so fortunate to be chosen to raise your sweet baby. As your baby’s parents, we promise this – we will provide infinite love, support, guidance and compassion to your baby! Your baby will never want for what he or she will need to grow up to become an amazing human. Not just for what we will do but for what you have done. We will always make sure that your baby knows love, experiences joy and laughter and forever has their place in our hearts and our family.

Each day when we part from our children, we ask, “where are you always?” They respond, “Heart!” This is the same place your baby will reside, not only in your heart, but always in ours.

We don’t know that we can adequately convey the depth of our gratitude, but know that we will return the gratitude with daily acts of love and kindness bestowed upon your precious child! Your child will know that he or she was brought into this world and our lives by a brave, caring, selfless woman who put their needs above all else.

A typical day in our home is nothing short of busy. We have school little league, Cub Scouts and all sorts of activities that we participate in every day. We have an amazing park across the street where we often run and play. That’s just in walking distance and within a few miles even more parks. We have a wonderful neighborhood for riding bikes and more recently, the new hover boards that Santa brought the boys! We love to cook and try all kinds of food. We will spend time enjoying camping, cook-outs, friends and family all of who are SO excited to welcome a new baby!

The love for your baby will know no bounds! We both come from large families and they continue to grow! Your baby will have dozens of aunts, uncles and more cousins than they can ever imagine. And then there’s our boys, Brodie and Joey. Rest assured, your baby will have two of the BEST big brothers in the whole world. Our sons are kind, funny, loving and so excited to be big brothers to a baby. Funny thing, they have been practicing holding our puppy like a baby; it’s very heart-warming!

Queta is the youngest of ten children and Donavon is the second oldest of five, so we know family, we love family, we honor and cherish family! We believe that it takes a village to raise a child, and we would love to bring your child into our village where they will know and experience even more love, compassion and guidance. They will be welcomed with thousands of open arms and raised by the most amazing village!!

We can never ever thank you enough. Words will never express our gratitude for this gift. And never will there be a greater gift. So simply, let us close by saying, Thank you for being brave! Thank you for being selfless! Thank you for being courageous! Thank you for the opportunity to be parents to your precious child!

Q&A

Tell us about your home and neighborhood.

We live in a small neighborhood right across from a park and within walking distance to a quaint city center, shops and restaurants. While we have only lived in our new home for less than a year, we have met many of our neighbors who often walk by and say hello. There are plenty of children for the boys to play with. On a nice day, we will see our neighbors out walking their dogs, pushing strollers and walking with their kids. To say this neighborhood is “family friendly” is an understatement! Our home is spacious, but homey. We have the perfect entertaining space outside for our family and friends. Our home is filled with love and you can almost always hear laughter!

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

We have often been inclined to hook up our tent trailer and head to one of many campsites in our area for a long weekend. When we can’t go camping, we will organize the impromptu dinner party, BBQ or get together with family and friends. Otherwise our long weekends are an extra day for enjoying each other and just getting an extra day to relax!

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

We have one dog, Cagney, our new Belgian Malinois puppy. Cagney is about 4 months old and she is ALL puppy! She is active and always getting into things. Unlike Ella, she can often be heard galloping across the wood floors, screeching around the corner looking for us! She has a curious sense about her and is incredibly smart, and food motivated. While different dogs, they are both so incredibly loyal! She complements our family, perfectly!

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

We hope to teach our children to be responsible, compassionate, loyal and resilient. We hope to teach them that the world and its resources are precious. We hope to teach them to respect themselves and one another. We hope they learn to be strong and to stand up for their convictions. We hope they will ask questions and wonder! We hope that we teach them the meaning of hard work and the importance of being present.

What will you tell your child about his or her birth mom?

We will tell our child that their birth mom has an incredible heart, loves them unconditionally and considered their needs above their own. That she was brave, courageous and selfless. We will tell our child that while it might be difficult to understand, their mom gave a gift to a family that no words of gratitude could convey just how grateful we are that she chose us!

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

We are not active in any particular church, but we both regularly draw upon faith to help us manage times that are trying. We raise our children by the most basic religious tenets of most religions.

Describe your last vacation and/or daytrip.

Our last vacation was in a rented RV. We drove to visit friends and along the way camped at various places. It was an adventure to say the least, but a memory of a lifetime. We felt fortunate to be able to share that experience as a family. It gave us an opportunity to get to know one another even more. It was a priceless family experience.

Will you be returning to work? If so, describe your day-care plans.

We have amazing benefits in our jobs and will be able to access generous parental bonding time. After that, we would explore available day care options, which will likely include the day care that helped in raising our boys. Our experience with them was nothing short of exceptional. It was comforting to know that our children were loved and cared for during the day. We expect the same would be given to a sibling.

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?

Our initial thought is GRATITUDE! How do we ever express to a stranger how grateful we are for enriching and changing our lives for the better and forever!? As we hold our baby, we feel respect and adoration for her bravery and courageousness.
