Dear Expectant Parent:
It is with deep respect and appreciation for you that we are writing this letter to you from our hearts. We know that you love and care for your baby, and because of this great love for your child, you have chosen the path of adoption. We are grateful for you.
Our names are Anita and Doyle, and after meeting, falling in love, and marrying, we were overjoyed by the birth of our son in 2007. Our son was born with a genetic disorder, and because we love being parents so much, we have chosen to continue building our family through adoption. Our hearts and home have a lot of room for your child. Every day, he/she would wake up to hugs and kisses!
Your child would grow up in a five-bedroom home in the country with a spacious yard and lots of trees in a wonderful neighborhood. We own a farm and dairy cows, so Doyle has a flexible schedule and is able to spend lots of quality time at home. As a family, some of the fun things we get to do on the farm include feeding the baby calves and gathering sap from the maple trees in our woods. We also enjoy sitting around the campfire roasting marshmallows, playing games, hiking, canoeing, sledding and ice skating.
Doyle would be such a great father to your child. He enjoys hunting, sightseeing, visiting family out of state, and taking our son along for rides on the tractor or combine, whenever he gets the chance. Doyle is extremely loving and patient, and would love your child and make him/her the most important part of his life, as he does with us.
Anita is a wonderful wife and stay-at-home mom. She enjoys working outside in the flower and vegetable gardens, taking walks, mowing the lawn, canning fruits and vegetables, and cooking. I love coming home to the aroma of fresh bread or cinnamon rolls baking. Anita knows how to make our home a happy, beautiful place and it’s my favorite place to be. She can’t wait to hold, cuddle and love your child, and welcome him/her into her heart.
In addition to your child having two loving parents, he/she would get to grow up with a big brother named Carter who is very sweet, has a great sense of humor, and is very happy. Carter would teach your child the joys of swinging, singing, reading books, playing with trains, roughhousing, and riding on the tractor with Dad.
We are Mennonites, and we belong to a very supportive church group. It is important to us to live according to the teachings of the Bible. Your child would grow up learning about these teachings in a happy, secure home where he/she would feel loved and appreciated.
We already have a special place in our hearts for you, and we are praying for both you and your precious little one. It is our hope that you feel God’s nearness at this time, and throughout your life.
Doyle and Anita
