Dear Expectant Mom,
It’s difficult to write a letter to someone you haven’t met.
It’s also difficult for you to gain insight into our lives through just a few
words. We can only hope that the same force that has driven us all to this
point in our lives will also see to it that we find each other. We are both far
from perfect, but if you choose us for your child, we promise to always strive
to provide a loving, stable home with lots of family and friends to surround
and love them. We have a lot of love to give, and only wish for the opportunity
to give it to your child.
There is a long list of things that we look forward to experiencing
with your child. We both look forward to coming home from work and him or her being
so excited to see us, and to tell us all about their day. We want to hear about
their adventures with Grandma and Papa or, when they get older, all about their
day at school. We can’t wait to introduce your child to our Sunday traditions. We
go to church with our family, and then have our weekly Sunday dinner with them.
We will also sit down at our dinner table and eat dinner as a family every
night. Laura experienced this as a child growing up and we will treasure that
I, Laura, can’t wait to have stories at bedtime! And cuddling
on the couch while we watch their favorite movie or show just sounds amazing. I
look forward to taking walks to the park down the street, and watching them
explore the playground. I love to travel, and would love to share those
experiences with your child. I dream about the places we will go, like Disneyland
and exploring California, going back to Indiana to visit family and friends and
see where I am from, and all the rest of the world!
I, Luis, am looking forward to sports with your child. From
throwing the ball around in the backyard, to coaching their team, and going to
sporting events. I look forward to helping them with their homework and school
projects. I loves being outdoors fishing and hanging out with the family, and
want to share my love of the outdoors with him or her.
Should you choose us to raise your child, you can be assured
that they will have a happy, fulfilled life, and the world will be theirs to
explore. You can also be assured that the gift you give us will never be taken
for granted. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Luis & Laura
