Dear Expectant Mother,

We do not know each other, but we have an amazing opportunity to impact each other’s lives forever.  We want you to know that any child we adopt will know the very courageous and selfless decision that his or her birthmother made and will know that this decision was made out of great love. 

Before we were married, we laughed and dreamed about all the children we could not wait to have.  After we got married and experienced years of infertility, the possibility of these dreams never coming true hit us hard.  Would we ever become parents?  A year and a half ago, we were incredibly blessed to be chosen to become parents by a very loving and courageous woman.  We will never be able to truly convey to her the gift that she has given us.  You also have an incredible ability to change our lives and to help us to grow our family.  We are so grateful for this opportunity to communicate with you.

We cannot even begin to put ourselves in your situation.  We are all faced with difficult decisions to make in life and adoption must be one of them.  One thing we do when we have a very difficult decision to make is ask for God’s guidance through prayer. Our Catholic faith is very important to us.  We attend mass every Sunday and prayer has led us to the decision to adopt a second time. 

Our second adopted child, just like our son, will be raised in a very happy, safe and loving home surrounded by grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins who cannot wait to have another little one join our family.  We are very close to our extended families and see them often. 

We live in a fun neighborhood filled with children who are always playing outside.  The park, forest trails, school and church are very close.  We are just a short car ride from the beach, zoo and museums and we love to travel.  We spend much time with our son with friends and neighbors playing outside and attending little classes for him.  Colleen was a teacher of students with learning difficulties and not only loves children, but has great insight on early learning.  Bob is the sports fan and is already teaching our son how to hold a ball and shoot a basket.  We both look forward so very much to having a family of four!

God’s Blessings to You,

Bob & Colleen
