Dear Expectant Mother,
Raising children has been priority of ours since the first day we met. We always knew that we would have children and grow our family together. What we didn’t know was that we would be challenged in conceiving children of our own. Two years ago we were blessed with the adoption of a baby girl. We have enjoyed every moment with her since the day we met her. As a family, we wish to grow. As parents, we wish for our daughter to have a sibling to grow up with. Your gift through adoption would fulfill those wishes and make our family complete.
The both of us come from strong family backgrounds. As kids we did a lot of activities with our families and we wish to do the same with our children. Liana is a very caring and adventurous person. Her caring and nurturing relationships with family and friends leave no doubt whatsoever that she is an outstanding mother. Steve is great with kids and shows the kind of patience that makes an amazing father. He is a kid at heart who loves to have fun and play.
We love to camp and spend time together, sitting around the campfire with friends and spending quality time as a family. We enjoy going for walks and picture ourselves together as we spend weekends playing games with our children and relaxing in a nearby park. We have a close circle of friends, many who have children of their own, and we would love to have our children grow up with their children. On weekends we go to church as a family and enjoy spending quality time at home with each other and sharing the events of our days. We are very close to our families and our children will be embraced by an extended family of aunts, uncles and cousins.
We want a life for our children that provides all of the opportunities to grow into well-rounded educated individuals who will experience life knowing that they have the love and support of their family behind them. As parents, we would encourage the pursuit of a good education and will provide all of the opportunities we can to allow our children to pursue a career they find both stimulating and rewarding. In fact, we have already started to save for college funds!
Our lives will again change when we receive another child into our home; it is a change we welcome with open arms. We have been praying for the day when we could open our hearts and home to another member of our family, and are looking forward to again changing diapers, sleepless nights and all of the other experiences of parenthood.
We know this must not be an easy decision, and can only tell you that your child would be brought up in a family of immense love and acceptance. We would do everything in our power to raise this child in the most nurturing loving home and would consider it a gift if you would consider us as the adoptive parents for your child.
Liana & Steve
