Dear Expecting Mother,
We can’t imagine what you are going through that has led to
this moment of choosing adoption, but we know your decisions will be made with
pure love. We are incredibly grateful for your strength and courage in making
this decision as you look at your future. As we look at our future, we are not
exactly certain how the path to having a family will unfold, but we are
grateful for your consideration. What we are certain of is the unconditional
love that we have to give to a baby. We will provide a nurturing, loving home,
full of laughter and family-oriented fun. Our greatest wish is to start a
family and provide the life and loving home you might imagine for your baby.
Our story began seven years ago when we met through a mutual
friend, and as they say, “the rest is history!” While dating we talked about
having children and we even drafted a list of baby names that we both love.
After getting married, we knew we wanted to be parents, and have tried for the
last five years to have a baby, with lots of miscarriages and surgeries along
the way. And even through all of these trials, we still want to be parents and
love a sweet baby, so we decided to invest our time and resources into
providing a loving home for a child about to enter this world. Our hearts are
bursting at the seams to love you and your baby!
Since childhood, Jan always knew she wanted to become a
mother. She started babysitting as an early teen, has been extremely involved
in her cousin’s children’s lives, and now is a 1st grade teacher.
being around children! Children of all ages, nieces or nephews, or friends’
kids, always gravitate towards Andrew. His calm and loving demeanor attract
children and they just adore him. He is never too busy to stop what he’s
working on to bend down and have a conversation with them, or to play games
they’re interested in. He will lie down on the floor and join in
We were both raised to appreciate the importance of family.
We spend time together each day. We share our hardships and triumphs from work
and we offer support to each other. Your child will enjoy this same level of
support from us as parents. We will have family dinners with three adopted
cousins, game times, and weekends traveling to new places or spending time at
home enjoying the smaller things in life. Your child will be welcomed with open
arms and loving hearts. We also love to go for walks, ride bikes, take lots of
trips to Disneyland, and relax at the coast. We love day trips to the
mountains, week-long cruises, driving across the country and seeing many unique
sites. We want to show our children the world and all of the amazing places
there are to go!
We are so excited to grow our family and share these
experiences with a little one. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for
considering us to become adoptive parents and help our dream of expanding our
family come true. We promise that your child will know about you and how you made an
incredibly courageous and difficult decision. We are willing to support open
communication throughout your child’s life, if that is something you wish to
do. We admire you and respect the decision you are making for yourself and your
child. Thank you!
With love and respect,
Andrew and Jan
