Dear Expectant Mother,
Thank you for your courage in choosing adoption for the precious life you are carrying. We can only imagine the many emotions that you are feeling day-by-day, hour-by-hour, as you are making important decisions for yourself and this beautiful baby. We want to be a support to you as you go through this pregnancy.
We have had plans of growing our family through adoption since we started dating more than 15 years ago and are excited and overjoyed at the thought of raising a baby. Please know that your baby will be loved and cherished by us and our sons, Theo (7) and Tommy (4). We have taught our boys about adoption and they often ask questions about their future sister or brother. Theo has been excited for another baby for the past 4 years and has been so inquisitive and interested in the adoption process. Tommy is looking forward to being a big brother (and he insists he will do a great job of sharing his toys). We are all longing to bring your baby home!
Dylan left a career as teacher to be a stay-at-home dad. He busies himself with the day-to-day care of the family as well as works part time in real estate. He loves to cook delicious meals, make projects in the woodshop and meet various other daily needs of the family. Rebekah works full-time in the medical field and regularly volunteers in her sons’ classrooms and teaches art at the elementary school. She loves to spend time with the family, especially when the activity involves exercise, the great outdoors and music.
As parents already, we know that “perfect” parenting does not exist. However, we see firsthand the confidence and health that blossoms in a child who is loved unconditionally and given a safe home in which to grow, explore and flourish. This is the type of loving environment we will provide for your baby. Your baby will be welcomed into our family with great affection, love and enthusiasm. We will love your baby deeply and challenge, encourage, and offer her or him support throughout life, from infancy to a healthy and successful adulthood.
Thank you again for choosing adoption. Your precious baby will know about your bravery, love and sacrifice. Life is complicated and often difficult, but with the hardship coexists beauty and hope. We look forward to extending our love and support to you and welcoming your baby into our arms. Thank you for considering our family.
Rebekah and Dylan
