Dear Expectant Mother,
Raising children has been
priority of ours since the first day we met.
We always knew that we would have children and grow our family together.
What we didn’t know was that we would be challenged in conceiving children of
our own. Two years ago, we were blessed
with the adoption of a baby girl. We
named her Caroline Faith. We chose the first name of Caroline after Steve’s
mother and a middle name of Faith as this was the name the birth mother would
have named her. We have enjoyed every moment with her since the day we met her.
As a family, we wish to grow. As parents, we wish for Caroline to have a
sibling to grow up with. Your gift through adoption would fulfill those wishes
and make our family complete.
The both of us come from strong
family backgrounds. As kids we did a lot
of activities with our families and we wish to do the same with our
children. Liana is a very caring and
adventurous person. Her caring and
nurturing relationships with family and friends leaves no doubt whatsoever that
she is an outstanding mother. Steve is
great with kids and shows the kind of patience that makes an amazing father. He
is a kid at heart who loves to have fun and play.
We love to camp and spend time
together, sitting around the campfire with friends and spending quality time as
a family. We enjoy going for walks and
picture ourselves together as we spend weekends playing games with our children
and relaxing in a nearby park. We have a close circle of friends, many who have
children of their own, and we would love to have our children grow up with
their children. On weekends we go to
church as a family and enjoy spending quality time at home with each other and
sharing the events of our days. We are very close to our families and our children
will be embraced by an extended family of aunts, uncles and cousins.
We want a life for our children
that provide all of the opportunities to grow into well-rounded educated
individuals who will experience life knowing that they have the love and support
of their family behind them. As parents,
we would encourage the pursuit of a good education and will provide all of the
opportunities we can to allow our children to pursue a career they find both
stimulating and rewarding. In fact, we
have already started to save for college funds!
Our lives will again change when
we receive another child into our home; it is a change we welcome with open
arms. We have been praying for the day
when we could open our hearts and home to another member of our family, and are
looking forward to again changing diapers, sleepless nights and all of the
other experiences of parenthood.
We know this must not be an easy
decision, and can only tell you that your child would be brought up in a family
of immense love and acceptance. We would
do everything in our power to raise this child in the most nurturing loving
home and would consider it a gift if you would consider us as the adoptive
parents for your child.
Liana & Steve
