Dear Expectant Parent,
Your love and consideration for your baby is amazing and
will be an incredible gift to a loving adoptive family. We have so much respect
for you and for the decision you have made to give your child life. We would
love to talk with you about the dreams you have for your future and the future
of your child. We care about honoring your wishes and making this journey something
we can do together with you. We are incredibly grateful that you would consider
us as your child’s adoptive parents. Your decision in choosing a family for
your baby is probably the most important thing in your life right now and we
want to give you all that you need to feel comfortable with your choice.
We would love hear about what is important to you. What are
your wishes for your baby? Your baby would be the greatest blessing to us and
would grow up with two loving parents and two beautiful, intelligent and
confident big sisters who have tons of hugs and kisses to offer. Please know
that your baby will have a wonderful life and will always feel secure,
cherished and loved by us as well as our family and friends. We will raise him
or her to always know they were loved by you and that allowing us to adopt him
or her was the greatest act of love.
It’s hard to tell you everything you might want to know, but
we’ll start with describing ourselves and what our life is like. Our family
includes Fred, Summer, Morgan and Lara. Summer and Morgan are Fred’s daughters
from a prior marriage. When Fred and I met it was one of those ‘meant to be’ moments
that has turned into a solid marriage full of respect and consideration for
each other. I also fell in love with Fred’s girls and they quickly became my
daughters too. Together (yes, the girls were totally on board) we decided that
we wanted to grow our family. But life threw us a surprise we never expected –
we were not able to get pregnant. You would be the answer to our prayers if you
allow your baby to be part of our family. We have so much love to give!
When you picture the home that your baby will grow up in
what does that look like? We have a very comfortable home in the country with
lots of room inside and out. There are beautiful trees, winding trails, lots of
space to run around and play and a river in the back yard for paddling, fishing
and swimming. Any kids that visit our house always find their way to the rope
swing. It’s like a magnet for the kiddos. We also love spending time with
friends and family around big camp fires where we roast marshmallows and tell
camp stories. We are a very active family in all seasons and when winter comes
we enjoy snowmobiling, ice fishing, building snow forts and having family snowball
fights. Our biggest wish is to raise a child enjoying all of these experiences
and we will be so blessed and thankful if you allow us that opportunity.
We believe every child deserves a loving home where they are
cared for, feel safe and supported and are loved unconditionally. We would be
honored to give that to your baby.
We appreciate this journey you are on and would love to be
there for you.
With Love and Respect,
Lara & Fred
