Dear Expectant Mother,

You are showing kindness to your unborn child by doing what you believe is right for him or her. It is that kindness that leads to creating a family for a stranger. You are smart and are making a hard decision through what we imagine are the most difficult of feelings and fears, a decision which will be the hardest decision of your life. You are important, one of the most important people in our lives. You are also the most important person to our future son or daughter. You are going through an unimaginable hardship that will grant us the happiness and love that we have been searching for, for so long. It takes courage, intelligence and power to make such a life changing decision. All of your decisions, feelings and difficulties have led to one of the most important decisions of ours, adoption. You are kind. You are smart. You are important.

You are all those things and so much more. We want you know that although we’d like to imagine what you are going through, we cannot. We cannot imagine the decision you have to make, but know that we have the utmost respect for you, your child, your family and your difficult situation. We can only show support and encouragement in such a difficult time in your life. We value what you are doing and the opportunity you are giving us. You are stronger than most in this world and we praise you for it all.

Even before we got together, we both had intentions and hopes to adopt in our adult future. It is something we both always wanted. Our original plan was to have a child or two of our own and then adopt. We thought we needed to be “experienced” parents before we adopted but as we learned, that is not true. Love and dedication is what we need. After recent difficulties getting pregnant, we are ready to adopt. We are ready to be great parents. We both have very close family members that were adopted, an aunt and sister-in-law. Their stories and support of the rest of our family has only strengthened our desire to adopt. After adopting our first child, we hope to continue to expand the family by trying naturally and adoption.

The love you have for your baby shows in your ability to make this decision. We will take that love and make it grow. We will give your child everything we can possibly give, from love and laughter to a good education and preparation for their adult lives. We cannot wait to raise your child and enjoy every stage of their lives, as we will also share with you. Your baby will have smothering grandparents, loving aunts and uncles and rambunctious cousins to play with. He or she will have the sweetest protective fur brother. But most of all, he or she will have parents who devote their lives and their happiness to them. We will bring your child everywhere we go and introduce them to everything and everyone. We spend many weekends in the spring, summer and early fall at the lake and camping with many cousins and friends. They will be introduced to sports and hobbies and will have the ability to decide for themselves what they want to do.

We want your child to grow up knowing all in this world. We want to raise them as human beings who love first and judge last. They will not see differences in this world but see the wonderful attributes in everyone they meet. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for giving us this opportunity and for sharing your life with us. This is all because of you and we hope to repay you by giving your child the best life he or she can have.

Thank you,
Tim & Meredith

Q&A

Tell us about your home and neighborhood.

We live in a neighborhood that offers a lot of activities, such as a boating lake, fishing lakes (one of which we live on), golf course, swimming club, playgrounds and sports courts/fields. The neighborhood is located right between two great school districts that we can decide on as our children grow. The surrounding area has a small town, family feeling.

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

Three-day weekends are our favorite! We will either be spending our three-day weekends camping with Meredith's family or at the lake with Timothy's family. Our family lake house is located in Tennessee. We are usually down there with Meredith’s parents, siblings and friends and occasionally are joined by Tim's family members.

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

We have Ace! He is a 4-year-old, male. black shepherd/lab mix. While he is extremely playful and could run for hours, he still loves to cuddle and show affection. He does great with other dogs and loves to be around our nieces and nephews.

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

We hope to teach our children to be good people. To be a good person, you treat everyone with kindness, show love to everyone and appreciate the good things in life. We want our children to know that it is okay to be different and that everyone has their own story. We want our children to grow up being a friend to everyone.

What will you tell your child about his/her birthmother?

Depending on the birthmom’s situation and her wishes in regards to a relationship with her child, we will tell him/her whatever they want to know. We do want her child to know that we know it was a very difficult decision their birthmother made but that we are very grateful and appreciative that she made the decision which has allowed us to become their mom and dad. We will let him or her know that their birthmom made her decision out of love.

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

We are not active in a church. We moved to this new neighborhood in just the past couple years and need to get to know the area to decide on a church. Faith and prayer are very important to us. We take time each day to thank God for what we have and to pray for our loved ones and the people around the world that need His love.

How will a child enrich your life?

Children already enrich our lives. One of our favorite things is to spend time with our nieces and nephews. Children’s laughter, smile and playful spirits are the most beautiful things in this world. We cannot even begin to imagine the enrichment and joy our lives will have once we have a child of our own. Children teach us more than we learn from any schooling, job or life experience. As much as we will be providing love for our child, they will be filling a hole in our lives too.

Describe your last vacation and/or day trip

Both of our families do not go on too many “vacations” because as we described earlier, we do a lot of weekend trips. But it just so happens that both of our families ended up planning a vacation on this past summer. We spent one week at Destin Beach with Meredith's family, cousins and close family friends. Then we spent a week with Tim's family at Hilton Head island. We split our times between the beach and pool. At nights, we would either stay in and cook or go out to eat. Of course for the women, there was shopping and sports/activities for the boys on both trips.

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

Timothy will be returning to work as an electrician full-time. Meredith will be returning part time as a nurse. Being a nurse, allows a very flexible schedule for Meredith to be able to work as many or as little hours as needed for the child and family's schedule. While both parents are working, we have family that will provide child care while our child is small. There are many local daycares with good reviews and suggested in-home daycares from other friends and family. We will look at these options as the child grows.

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?

As mentioned before, we will be eternally grateful to their birth mother. We will respect her decision. We can only imagine what she went through but are extremely thankful that she made the decision she did, which allowed us to become a family.
