Dear Expectant Mother,
As we sit here writing this letter trying to figure out the
right words to say, we are thinking of you and how much uncertainty you must be
feeling. We can’t even begin to imagine or understand what you are going
through. Please know that we think you’re incredibly brave and have so much
love in your heart. We know this must be a confusing and difficult time for
We are Roy and Mandee. We live in quiet town in a
neighborhood with lots of young children. We have a three-bedroom home with a
room all ready for a little one. We live on a corner lot with a big back yard. We
struggled trying to conceive a baby, but were told we would never have any
children; having a hysterectomy made it real. It was hard to come to terms with
that. We want nothing more than to be parents. We are looking forward to
adopting, and can’t wait to share our love with a child and to share our family
We love to be outdoors. We have a camper and love to go
everywhere we can. We belong to a local campground and try to go up there at
least twice a month for a long weekend. There is so much to do there; there is
a beach, playground and pool among other amenities. There are also activities
every weekend for children, and we can’t wait to take your little one. We like
to take long camping vacations as well. We love the beach; it is our favorite
place to be. We recently went to Gettysburg Battlefield and it was such a
wonderful experience that we plan on making it a yearly visit. We enjoy going
to our local pool, watching movies in the backyard and barbecuing.
We live close to so many wonderful things. We are close to
multiple museums, the zoo and the aviary. There is also a science center,
libraries and so many other great places. Mandee will be a stay-at-home mother
and we will be able to do so many amazing things together.
We have two fun Labrador/Shepherd mix dogs, Lilo and Diesel,
who will be so great with a child. They love to go camping, swimming and
playing in the sand. Lilo is just the sweetest dog and she loves children. Diesel
is extremely playful and loves to be outside. We also have three adorable cats.
Presley and Stitch are brothers and still like to cuddle with each other. And
Holly is shy but incredibly sweet.
We want your child to know how much you love them and that
you made this choice trusting that we would give him or her a wonderful life. We
want to be able to tell them about you and your courage. If you decide to make an
adoption plan, we assure you that we will respect you and your choice, and that
we will cherish and love your child with all of our hearts. We will provide a
safe, happy home and life with opportunity to grow.
We hope that by reading our letter you will feel confident
that we would be wonderful adoptive parents to your baby and that you get to
know a little bit about us. We want you to know how grateful we are that you
are reading our letter and considering adoption. We hope you feel supported and
loved no matter where you are in your journey.
Roy and Mandee
