Dear Expectant Mother,
We realize adoption is a life-long journey and it’s one that
we will take with you. We are open to whatever level of contact you would be
comfortable with, and would love nothing more than for you to be a part of our
There is nothing we want more than to give your child a
wonderful life. If we are lucky enough to adopt your child, he/she will always
know how much you love them and that you made this decision with love and hope
in your heart. We think that what you are doing is brave, selfless and
Here’s how we picture the life your child would have with
us: an infinite amount of love and laughter, with us and our large and
affectionate extended family of cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents and
friends. We will munch on giant buckets of popcorn at the movies, hike in the
mountains, decorate the Christmas tree, ride bikes, read stories, go swimming
and skiing, make cookies and bake birthday cakes, and travel to see new places.
We love to laugh, cook, go for walks, watch movies, be outside and visit with
family and friends. Life with us would be fun, secure, and full of activities.
We have been trying to have children for over 5 years and
would feel blessed if you chose us to raise the beautiful baby you are going to
bring into the world. We are a loving, stable and kind couple with two sweet,
small dogs. Since we have no other children, your child would have our full
love and attention. We call Colorado home and live in a really unique community;
it’s a very family-friendly village-like neighborhood with good schools, parks,
and lots of activities to keep children busy. We also have many friends who have
adopted children and feel we have a great support system to help us with any
questions or challenges we have.
Thank you for taking the time to read our letter and for
considering us as the parents of your child. We hope to meet and talk to you
soon and answer any questions.
Lots of love,
Joanne and Nick

Dear Uncle Nick and Aunt JoJo,
Having babies is a lot of work, but I know you can do it because you're special. You will be great and funny parents. You always make me happy. I love you more than you know. Your baby will be the luckiest in the galaxy just like we are to have you.
