Dear Expectant Mother,

We cannot imagine the thoughts and feelings in your mind and heart as you proceed with such a blessed and courageous journey. We can assure you though, that your strength and selflessness will turn into the answer to our prayers. We have hoped, prayed, and wished for a precious child to call our own for so long now and we are reaching out to you today to share our appreciation of the gift that you are considering placing with us to make our family complete.

Matt is a funny, caring, and kind-hearted person. We have five nieces and one nephew, and Matt is everyone’s favorite uncle. What first attracted me to Matt was his sense of humor, but as I got to know him better, I really appreciated how kind he was to others, whether it was family, friends, and even strangers. Matt is very social and is always trying to make others feel comfortable. He is also hard-working. These qualities have aided him well in successfully owning his own insurance agency. He also loves being outside, whether it is yard work, being in the pool, or playing sports. He plans to be very involved with our future children’s activities, including organized sports or even just playing outside. Collectively, we both enjoy sports, music, swimming, the beach, and travel and can’t wait to share these loves with your child.

Casey is a beautiful, hardworking, intelligent woman who never ceases to amaze me. She excels at everything she does and has definitely changed my life for the better. Casey is extremely driven and puts her best foot forward in all of her endeavors. I met Casey when she was right out of college and since then she’s received numerous promotions and awards at her places of business. I knew right away that Casey would fit in well with my family. She treats my parents like they’re her own and my nieces and nephew love their Aunt Casey. Casey enjoys her quiet time where she likes to read, lounge by the pool, and work out. However, she also enjoys going to concerts, hanging out with friends and family, and taking walks around our neighborhood with our Pug, Bailey. She’s an extremely well rounded person and I know that she is going to be a tremendous mom.

Your baby will be cared for and well provided for, always. We were both raised with loving and caring families who were full of encouragement and opportunity and we can promise, without hesitation, that these are the traits that will shape our household as your baby grows with us. Our families are full of traditions, especially around the holidays and on summer vacations, as we gather to eat, play games, and laugh together. We are hard-working and loyal people because of the examples our parents have set for us. We have many close relatives and friends who share in our positive experiences, so your baby will always be surrounded with love, support, and generosity. Overall, we cannot say enough about your brave actions that will fill the space in our hearts. We thank you endlessly and think of you fondly for the sacrifice you are making.

With love and appreciation,
Matthew and Casey

Q&A

Tell us about your home and neighborhood.

Our home and neighborhood are both beautiful. We moved just over two years ago and know that this will be our forever home. We specifically chose this home and neighborhood with the intention of raising children. Our house is spacious and bright with lots of room to play. Our back yard is fully-fenced and has a large in-ground pool where we spend a lot of our time in the summer. There is a lot of yard to play in both in the back and front of our home. We have made a lot of new friends, all of which have children. We love seeing the kids outside playing, with other children and even their parents.

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

We have a 13-year-old Pug named Bailey. She’s very friendly and loves seeing our extended family. She even face times with our nieces when they call. She loves to snuggle and is happiest just lying next to someone on our couch.

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

On a three-day weekend we like to spend time together as a family. This often includes necessary things like catching up on house chores, but also time to relax as well. In the summers we spend time outside in the pool either alone or with our extended family. In the winter we like to like to experience new things, such as day trips into the city or mountains, perhaps take a ride down to the shore, go to the park, or see a new movie or try a new restaurant.

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

We hope to teach our child(ren) the same lessons and virtues that our parents taught us when we were growing up. These include things such as respect, patience, acceptance, friendliness, and openness to others and life.

Describe your last vacation and/or day trip

Our last vacation was a week-long trip to the Jersey shore, which is something we do every summer with extended family, including five nieces and one nephew. The memories created with the kids during this time are priceless, and we look forward to adding to the memories with a child of our own. We also love Disney World and have been there to visit a few times, even choosing to spend our Honeymoon there. Additionally, we like to experience new things, most recently was a few days in Key West, Florida.

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 have hoped, prayed, and wished for a precious child to call our own for so long and we will always think about the birth mother with admiration and appreciation. We cannot even begin to imagine the thoughts and feelings that went into making this difficult decision and will always remember how her strength and selflessness became the answer to our prayers.
