Dear Potential Birth Mother,
We hope that this letter finds you in a place where you can
be at ease, and as you read this letter, for it to help in ways that you may need.
As we sit to write this letter, our hearts are pounding with excitement and
emotion, mostly because we know exactly how much lives can be changed because
of an adoption. We can only imagine the wide range of emotions that the adoption
process makes a birth family feel.
Our paths have led us to this point where you get to know a
little more about us, and we would love the opportunity to get to know more
about you. We have tried to become parents for the past two-and-a-half years,
waiting to be blessed with a perfect bundle of joy. Then we realized that we
are in a position to care for and provide for another baby that may been in
need of the type of life we can offer. So we are excited that you are
considering us to raise your child.
Sometimes we’ve asked ourselves why we haven’t considered
this before, but timing and fate are two things that we consider for conditions
to be right for things to happen. Our failed attempts of becoming parents, have
opened our eyes and helped us to see and understand that we are in a position
that allows us to give the nurturing, affection and love, which are needed to
bring a child into this world. We have learned that once we connect, start to
talk to and get to know each other, it will get a bit easier and the process
starts to become more real and less scary.
When it comes to the future of your child, we will always
prioritize their emotional, spiritual and financial needs above our own. When
it comes to the emotional support that we will give your child, we will always
ensure that they feel comfortable talking to us about anything. We will always
do our best to answer whatever questions they may have about you. We would love
it if you would write your baby a letter and we will keep it safe until the
time comes to let him/her read it. We come from a religious background and we will
raise your baby in a Christian home. We are financially stable and we will
ensure that your baby will always be taken care regardless of the cost.
We are humbled and blessed in so many ways for you to
consider us as possible parents for your baby. Wherever your journey leads you,
we hope that you find comfort in knowing that you have chosen that your baby
will be the biggest blessing and will be cherished every single day. We don’t
consider ourselves perfect, but choosing us for your child gives us the chance
to always strive to provide a very loving, stable home with lots of family and
friends to surround and love them.
Selwyn & Jennifer
