Dear Expectant Mother—
The decision you are about to make will change both of our
lives forever and we are grateful you would choose us to share in your journey.
We can’t imagine all the things you have to consider making this brave,
selfless and loving decision, but we offer you our support, understanding and
To place your child in our home would be a gift from God. We
have all the bits and pieces ready to make a forever home: We have been
together for more than 14 years and have tons of relatives and friends with
kids close by. Our family already contains one teenager, Tom’s daughter and
Julie’s step-daughter Kayla who is 19, as well as a pet dog and cat. Our home
is in the city in a really cool, artsy, historic area that offers so many
things to do just steps away from our doorstep. Not to mention the three major
rivers and amazing urban parks. The best of both worlds and perfect for
exposing children to creative, artistic and nature experiences.
We aren’t sure where you are on your journey to adoption but
ours started like many others on this website: we tried to conceive for many
years, and ultimately health issues didn’t allow that to happen. Soon after we
began to learn about adoption and are convinced this was the path we were meant
to be on all along. Adoption will allow us to complete our 7-year journey and
will fulfill lifelong dreams to be parents together. Thank you for considering
Adoption, like having your own children, and even getting
married, is a lifelong commitment we are so excited to make. And with that we’d
like to pledge our commitment to your child:
- We promise to love your baby, unconditionally, because all
children deserve love, support and compassion.
- We promise to do everything in our power to make sure they
have the best life possible, so they can grow into whatever person they are
meant to be.
- We promise to open our hearts to you, in whatever capacity
that may be, so that we can all grow from this experience.
- And lastly, we promise to never forget the sacrifice you
made and the gift you gave us. We will cherish every moment, the good and the
bad, the ups and the downs because love always prevails.
Thank you for reading about us and our prayers go out to
Julie and Tom
