Dear Expectant Mother,
Your decision to choose adoption may be the most difficult decision you have had to make at this stage in your life. We cannot imagine how difficult it is to entrust others to raise your child. We are thankful that you are considering placing your child in our care. Know that your child will be raised in a loving family.
Shortly after getting married, we began our journey to expand our family. Unsuccessful infertility treatments did not dampen our desire for a child and we turned to adoption to fulfill those desires. We have other family members that have been blessed by Adoption Network Law Center and have watched as these families have happily grown and flourished. We feel we have so much to offer a child and the blessings of becoming parents to your child will fulfill our dreams and complete our family. We will love and nurture your child as our own.
Family is very important to us. Although Huili’s family resides in China, the power of the internet and social media allow us to remain in contact with them in between annual visits. Your child will get the advantage of international travel and the opportunity to experience other cultures. Wayne comes from a large family: 10 brothers and sisters, 19 nieces and nephews, and 3 great nieces. Your child will be warmly welcomed with open arms by a large, supportive group of people.
We are are both college graduates, although in vastly different fields. Huili has a PhD in Humanities and is a college professor; Wayne has a Bachelor’s of Science in Engineering. See opposites do attract. We feel a child will benefit greatly by having parents with such diverse backgrounds. We will strive to provide a vast variety of experiences as they determine their life’s dreams and goals. As parents, we will actively support their interests and goals and help guide them through life’s journey.
We are fortunate to live in a beautiful home in rural New England in a tight-knit community with our golden retriever. There are plenty of children in the neighborhood so your child will have lots of playmates. We enjoy outdoor activities, such as hiking, and are lucky to have several trails close to us to enjoy at a moment’s notice. We are also close enough to metropolitan areas (Worcester and Boston) that we can enjoy cultural activities such as art museums and music. We look forward to sharing all of these things as we help shape your child’s life.
Should you choose us, we hope this letter allows you to be at peace with your decision to place your child with us.
Huili and Wayne
