Dear Expectant Mother,
There is no way that we could ever even begin to understand
what you are going through. What we do know is that it has taken incredible
strength, courage, and love to get you where you are today. Just know that in
our eyes, we will always see the most amazing woman who showed an immense
amount of bravery, courage and selfless decision, one who gave us such an
amazing gift that we will be eternally grateful. You will always hold a special
place in all our hearts because you blessed us with something that no one else
could have. After years of failed attempts, struggles and tears with not being
able to conceive, we are so honored and proud that you are considering us for this
opportunity to expand our family with your beautiful gift. We want you to know
that your baby will be loved unconditionally, open-heartedly and in a nurturing
home filled with kindness, laughter and respect. We will protect your baby with
all that we have. Thank you for considering sharing your beautiful gift with us
and providing a piece of our life that we so desperately have been waiting for.
We are eternally grateful to you!
We have made this decision in our life to adopt due to us
having four years of failed attempts at conceiving. Kelly has blessed me with
two amazing step-sons, Collin and Bentley, who have been truly nothing short of
a miracle. I don’t see them as my step-sons but only as my own. I came into
their lives in 2012 and have been honored to watch them grow.
We have always known that we wanted a child of our own,
whether that be from our own conception or another way. We knew that the odds
were slim, but we didn’t let that stop us. Ultimately, in October of 2018,
Kelly needed a hysterectomy which ended our path of conceiving. This was a very
trying time in our marriage, yet we still knew that we were not done! We cannot
see our future without having a baby of our own to raise.
Each summer, we take a family vacation. We are always
looking for new adventures and are all about making memories. Whether we are
vacationing in California across the street from the ocean, or traveling to the
East coast for Fourth of July, we love our family vacations. Kelly is looking
forward to taking care of all of the motherly nurturing things that she is so
amazing at. She can’t wait for the endless outfits for all seasons of the year.
We both look forward to the holidays, as we all dress up for funny Santa
photos. From dressing up for Halloween as the Flintstones, Toy Story, The
Incredibles, etc, we can’t wait to add our new addition into the family
traditions. Matt’s looking forward to have father/child park time, jogging
expeditions, cooking lessons and bedtime stories. Matt gives Bentley a piggy-back
ride each night to his bed. He tells him bedtime stories and kisses him every
night, and tells him how amazing he is. We look forward to going to indoor
playgrounds and watching him or her interact with others their age. We look
forward to watching them spend time with their grandparents, crawling on their
hands and knees when Grammy and Grandpa call their name.
As we mentioned before, we can’t even begin to understand
what you are experiencing. We can only attempt to put ourselves in your shoes
and imagine what it must be like to be doing what you are doing. Your courageous
and selfless act will always be a reminder to us that this child will always
and unconditionally be loved. Your child will be raised with loving hands,
gentle kisses and inspirational words to help then grow and succeed in their
life. We will explain to them how they arrived in our family. We will be honest
and caring when talking about how we could not have a child of our own, and how
grateful we are to raise them. Your child is truly a gift and we will forever
be grateful for how you blessed us with this miracle.
Matt & Kelly
