A Letter of Love to Our Child’s Birth Mother,
To say thank you for even considering adoption will never be
enough to show our gratitude, but we still want to take a moment to express how
grateful we are for you. The consideration to place your child in the love and
care of another family is without question, one of the most selfless acts that
any person can do for the benefit of another. We will be sure that your baby
always knows that the very first act of love he or she received was your
courageous choice to pursue adoption. In turn, we will never forget that your
decision allowed us the miracle of starting our own family.
Please know that our home will be one filled with
unconditional love, continuous encouragement, and endless laughter. We cannot
wait to show your baby all of the things we love and have him or her experience
different cultures, sports, cuisines, and experiences.
We are a musical family! Caleb plays the piano and guitar
and Heather sings. We will teach your child to appreciate and love all music,
from the doo-wop of The Temptations to incredible R&B artists such as Otis
Redding and Bruno Mars. We will also have him or her rocking out to the Rolling
Stones and Kelly Clarkson. Who knows, maybe he or she will want to play an
instrument. We need a drummer in the family!
We also love to travel! We will be sure that your child
experiences all of the cultures that life has to offer. Heather grew up with
both the beach and the mountains, so your child will know the excitement of
building a snowman as well as hunting for seashells on the beach.
Caleb is a huge sports fan. He will make sure that he
teaches your child about football, golf, basketball, or whatever sport he or
she is interested in. They will also know what it means to cheer on the LSU
Tigers! In turn, Heather loves to bake and will teach your child about fun in
the kitchen, as they make her signature Cookies and Cream macarons.
Above all else, we plan to teach your child about faith and
in particular, about God’s love, His protection, and His grace. When we do
this, we want to make sure that your baby sees that God’s love for us looks
just like your love for your unborn child in this very moment. This act of
grace towards your baby is an exact reflection of God’s love for all of us.
Thank you so much for taking the time to get to know us
through our profile. We hope that your life is filled with happiness both today
and in the future.
Caleb & Heather
