Warmest greetings Expectant Parent,
Atticus Finch from “To Kill a Mockingbird,” wisely said,
“You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point
of view—until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.” Try as I might to
understand your life-changing decision, I can never fully comprehend your
emotions and feelings, because I am not walking in your shoes. I simply admire your
courage, selflessness, and unconditional love you have for your baby. I am
beyond grateful for the decision you have made and am hopeful that I am who you
desire to raise your baby.
Since I was a little girl, I have dreamed of getting married
and starting a family. Unfortunately I haven't found my better half, the love
of my life. I am still waiting for him to come along, but I don’t want not
having a partner to stop me from fulfilling my dream of being a mom. When I
considered my family-building options, I knew adoption was right for me,
because I feel it is a wonderful way for a child to enter a family. It creates
an unspeakable bond between two women in which they share the unconditional
love of a child. My heart is filled with so much love for your baby and I'm
ready to welcome them into my life. I’m ready for a child to adventure with,
show the wonders of the world to, and raise to become a wonderful human being.
My strong desire to help enrich children’s lives has led me
to serve on an advisory board for homeless women and children, teach a toddler
Sunday school class, and coach a girls’ softball team. I look forward to
enriching your child’s life by broadening their experiences, enjoying the
outdoors, and being active in their school. Family vacations, nightly dinners
together, engaging in sports and other activities, and reading to them are also
ways I plan to enrich their life.
If chosen, I promise to unconditionally love, protect, and
treasure your child and will nurture them to grow up to the best person they
can be. I promise to provide them an upbringing in which God is a central
figure and to instill in them the values of kindness, generosity,
determination, and respect for others. In addition, I promise to encourage
their creativity, provide them the best education, and help them accomplish
their dreams. I am excited to welcome your baby into my loving family and am
open to sharing pictures, updates and their milestones with you.
I am thrilled to have this opportunity and am embracing
every moment as I patiently wait for a little hand to hold, to hear the pitter-patter of feet running across the floor, and the sweet sound of a child’s
laughter. I have been praying for years to become a mom but if I am not a match
for you, know that I wish God gives you wisdom, clarity and peace with whatever
decision you make.
