Dear Expectant Mother,
We are writing this letter out of
hope, love and faith. It is our hope that you can get to know us and we can build
a trustworthy and caring relationship with you. We truly value your courage and
your consideration for adoption of your unborn child.
We have had a desire to grow a family
of our own since before we were married. Although we have experienced
infertility, we have chosen not to try any forms of fertility treatments.
Instead, we have done a lot of praying and have faithfully chosen the path of
adoption. Through the ups and downs of not being able to have our own child we
have experienced many nights of uncertainty and fear. Through it all we did our
best to remain optimistic for God’s plan in our lives. We have held on to the
bible verse “For I know the plans I have for you” declares the Lord, “plans to
prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah
29:11) We believe God has a special child prepared for us. Should you choose
us, we want to assure you we are committed to giving your baby a life full of
We met while in college and have been
married for 10 years. We live and work in a college/university community that
we both thoroughly enjoy. We appreciate the focus of education while also
experiencing the balance of friendship and camaraderie. We purposely moved into
the best school district in our area because education is extremely important
to us. There is so much to do in and around the city and county where we live.
We live within walking distance to a community playground, farmer’s markets and
community events like movies on the lawn. For years we have longed to have a
family of our own to completely enjoy everything our community has to offer.
It brings us joy to think about how we
are going to love and care for your baby. A major part of the love we share and
wish to pass on comes from our family roots. We truly value the importance of
family. Growing up we were both taught that family means unconditional love,
sacrifice and lots of fun. There is an abundance of immediate and extended
family members waiting to shower the baby with hugs, kisses and gifts. Included
in that family are grandmas, grandpas, aunts, uncles and cousins. Family
gatherings are full of laughter and joy, especially when stories are being told
and new memories are being made. We are very much looking forward to all the
joys and laughter a child can bring into our lives.
Included in our circle of friends are
people that we consider family. Paul and I both work at our local University.
Paul is an academic advisor and I am a softball coach. We consider the softball
players and students we mentor extended family. We have watched them grow into
their adult lives from the start of their college careers and have even
attended their weddings and held their children. This is another branch of our
family tree that is such a vital part of our lives. Although it is very
fulfilling to see their growth, it does not replacing having a child we can
call our own.
For years we have mentored many
students and have watched them flourish in life by using the gifts God has
given them. The gift of a child that you are holding in your womb is a gift
that will forever be cherished and valued. We want you know how grateful we are
to be considered as a choice for your child’s future.
Paul & Jennifer
