Dear Expectant Mother,
HOPE. This is just one of the gifts you are giving to us. Hope is what has our hearts overflowing with anticipation of a future baby. You are the one who can provide this hope for us. Words will never seem enough to explain the level of gratitude we have for you.
We have been happily married for eight years and have been struggling with infertility for four of them. Prior to being married we promised each other we would be parents, either through conception or adoption. Creating a family was always a priority for us. After these years of infertility, and beginning the adoption process, it is extremely clear that all along, the adoption path was made for us. We believe we were created to do this. We were born for this. Every step we have taken as a couple has led to this point, including listening to the stories of Abby’s father, who was adopted.
Why do we want to adopt? We want to complete our family. We want to share this immense love we have for each other with a baby. We want to fill your baby with faith, confidence and love. We want to make this world better because we nurtured and loved a child. We want to adopt because we will be wonderful parents. And we want to adopt because we have love to give.
We envision so many things for your child. We dream of Saturday morning cuddles and church-filled Sunday mornings. We imagine impromptu dance parties while making dinner, play dates with friends and family, daily walks with our two lovable lap dogs. We plan on yearly family vacations and mini day trips and adventures. Whether your child wants to become a member of a sports team, learn an instrument, or spend time outdoors, we promise to provide the support and opportunity they need. We want to teach your child what responsibility, hard work, and kindness will bring. We want to read stories, play games, imagine and dream. We dream of overwhelming this baby in kisses, hugs, and “I love you’s.” Simply put, we want to show your child unconditional LOVE.
From the depths of our souls, Thank you. Thank you for considering us, trusting in us, believing in us. Thank you for this gift of hope to raise a child in our loving family. We vow to you, to each other, to God, to raise this baby with love.
Hope and Love,
Evan and Abby
