Dear Expectant Mother,
There is so much we would like to tell you about ourselves
to help you in your decision, but first we would like to talk about you. We
cannot pretend to know what you are going through or how difficult the choice
to place your unborn child in the arms of another can be. We want you to know
that we think you are one of the bravest and most courageous people there is!
We believe you are making this decision with your baby’s best interest at heart.
We know you want your child to have the best life they can possibly have and
that is exactly what we want to give them! Please be assured that your child
will be absolutely consumed by love and bring constant and immeasurable joy to
our family! We have dreamed about being parents our whole lives! Now that we are
parents to an amazing little girl, our hearts are so full of joy and love that
there is no question that we wanted to grow our family again and welcome
another baby! We cannot wait to watch two children bond, grow and learn
Not having children was never an option for us. Infertility
issues led us to the choice of adoption and we could not be more thrilled to
have adopted our beautiful Emily! To us you do not have to have the same blood
to be a family, and raising our children will be the most rewarding thing we
get to do in this world! We cannot wait to love, teach and nurture your baby as
our own! We look forward to rocking and singing them to sleep, to just holding
them, to being woken up in the middle of the night because of a bad dream, to
making a mess making cookies, to experiencing the first love, and the first
tear. Those are the moments that bind you and that you cherish for the rest of
As surprising as it may sound, Emily’s birth mother has
become a close friend to us. We started bonding the last few months of her
pregnancy after she picked us. Those bonds continued to grow after Emily’s
birth through texts, updates and milestones reached. We are so incredibly
thankful that God brought her and Emily into our lives!
We are patient, loving and giving people who will put your
child before all else! As a couple we are soul mates, unconditionally in love,
and fully devoted to each other! We met through a mutual friend while attending
college and instantly knew we were meant to be together! We are problem solvers
and very much a team. We would give your child the same unconditional love and
devotion that we have for each other! We will teach them right from wrong, how
to make good choices and to believe in themselves. We believe in the importance
of a good education and would hope to instill a love of knowledge and hard
work. We will support him or her no matter what their interests might be, and
allow them to experience all kinds of different things. We can already see
ourselves as a family of four, making s’mores at night in front of a warm
campfire or crowded around a table with popcorn for family game night.
Our neighborhood is a wonderful place for a child to grow up
in! There are many young children who live on our street, so making friends
will be easy. There is a common area within the small neighborhood where kids
can play, in addition to several beautiful parks nearby.
There are a couple professional sports stadiums, amusement
and water parks and zoos just a short drive away. More importantly though, we
live in an excellent and respected school district where your child would be
assured a top quality education!
It will be an honor to get to be parents again and it would mean
the world to us! We know now from experience that getting to be a parent is
sacred and life’s biggest blessing! We never could have imagined before just
how amazing and life changing being a parent can be! Being able to watch a baby
grow and learn and make us laugh every day is life’s most rewarding gift! However,
parents can never be replaced or forgotten, and we will make sure your child
knows just how much they are loved by you, and by us, every single day!
Jonathan and Kirah
