Dear Expectant Mother,
Over the past year we have
thought multiple times about what we might say to you, the person considering
letting us raise her child. It is difficult to put our feelings for you into
words because the words that come to mind don’t feel profound enough to
describe our emotions and gratitude.
We feel like we love you already
and we don’t even know you yet. When we dream about meeting you for the first
time, it makes us emotional. We are truly so excited to begin walking along
side you in this journey. We have a great deal of admiration and respect for
We can’t begin to thank you
enough for even just taking the time to learn about us and our life. We admire
you so much for the consideration you are making and though we have not yet met, we
think you are so brave, selfless, and full of unwavering love for your child.
We truly can’t imagine what you have been through in making the decision to
place your child for adoption. Should we be so incredibly fortunate to be
chosen by you to raise your child we promise that your child will live a life
with us as a family full of love, joy, laughter, growth, support, and knowing
the love in the decision you made.
We often find ourselves dreaming
out loud to each other about what it would be like to bring our child home and
add them to our lives.
Becoming parents is something
that we have talked about for a long time and is something that we want more
than anything. We made the decision to adopt last year and since then have
dreamt every day about what it would be like to get the call that we have been
chosen to parent a child and to look into that child’s eyes for the first time.
I can wholeheartedly promise you that no one will love your child as much as we
will. We have a huge space in our hearts full of so much love just waiting for
a child to fill it. Truly there are no words to describe what being chosen by
you would mean to us. We know that we are meant to be parents and that whatever
child we are blessed with will never go unloved.
Thank you from the bottom of our
hearts for taking the time to consider giving us a chance to live our dream.
Jake and Nicole
