Dear Expectant Mother:
It is with great respect that we write you this letter in the hopes of providing you with a glimpse into the kind of life we are able to provide for your child should you honor us with the privilege of raising your child. Your decision is such a very brave and selfless act of unending love for your child that should you bless us with the gift of your child it will never be forgotten.
We are Amy and Matt and we are very happy as a couple and enjoy a very content and full life. However one thing out of our control is our ability to have children. Family life is our number one priority and thankfully, we have the flexibility we need to support this priority. Amy recently left her career and enjoys being a stay-at-home mom, while Matt runs the family property management company and owns his own contracting business. We are financially secure and Matt’s work schedule allows him the flexibility for lots of family time. Matt is the sweetest, most gentle and genuine person I have ever met, plus he laughs at my jokes and loves to spoil me. Amy has that special twinkle in her eye that makes me feel very special and important to her. She is very caring and considerate to others, and she is very down to earth with a little goofiness thrown in. She makes me smile.
In 2011, we were blessed with the adoption of our son who is full of life and very eager to take on the role of big brother. We love and adore this little guy. He has a natural knack for science, so we spend a lot of time looking at science books and learning about science experiments. (Let’s just say we know more about the human digestive system than we ever needed to know…) It’s been so rewarding and enjoyable watching him grow and develop his own interests. He has really changed our life for the better and made us realize what’s important to us and what we value as a couple. But one indelible thing we’ve learned from him is that we have more to give. We would love to extend our family, our home, and our love to another child. It is our hope and wish that you can understand how the sacrifice you make will benefit the lives of so many others.
We enjoy life with our large extended family and good friends who live nearby. We get together for Sunday dinners and frequently entertain at our home. It is not unusual to come to our home and hear the sounds of laughter from cousins and neighborhood children enjoying our expansive backyard. Down the street are walking trails that we frequently enjoy as well. We enjoy days at the beach checking out the tide pools and going for a dinghy ride or we might enjoy a family trip to a baseball game or ice hockey game. We also love going to Disneyland, camping and taking weekend trips to one of our family homes in the desert or mountains.
We have been open with our son about his adoption so that he will always know his story and knows of the love and sacrifice that brought him to us. We will also tell you that there is not a day that goes by that we don’t feel a wave of extreme appreciation and gratitude for the decision his biological mother made.
The sacrifice you make will benefit the lives of so many others and for that, we are eternally grateful,
Matt and Amy
