Dear Expectant Mother,
We are grateful that you are giving us this opportunity to introduce ourselves. Your devotion to your child’s well-being is very selfless and honorable, and our family is elated that you have chosen to read our letter. We are currently a family of three but so desperately wish to be a family of four. We have undergone IVF multiple times over the past few years without success so adoption is our last chance to complete our family. We are absolutely thrilled at the idea of bringing another child into our lives. Our friends and family are all just as excited as we are at this wonderful opportunity.
We are a fun loving family with a five year old daughter. Brinkley is in Kindergarten, and can’t wait to be a big sister. She plays with her dolls pretending to feed and bath them, and change their diapers. Jackie is fortunate to be a stay at home mom and volunteers much of her time in Brinkley’s class. The bond they have is very strong and our daughter has thrived because of it. Lance works full time for a local school district and provides a steady income for the entire family.
Much of our time is spent enjoying nature at our local parks, the beach and campgrounds. We spend as much quality time together as possible when Brinkley is not in school, or Lance is not at work. Our home in Southern California affords us a lot of opportunity to enjoy the outdoors as the weather is great year round. We live close to several great museums and theme parks, and visit them regularly. Some of our other favorite activities include visiting the zoo, playing board games, roller skating, movie nights, and cooking dinners with our friends and family.
We have a very easy-going outlook on life and believe that everything happens for a reason. We all feel very strongly that this is the best time in our lives to bring another child into our family because while our daughter is in school, Jackie will be able to develop the same strong bond with the baby as she was able to develop with Brinkley. Your child will be raised with the same warmth and love that our own daughter has come to enjoy.
As an adopted child himself, Lance was raised in a loving family as an only-child. He always knew that he was adopted, but the love and devotion shown to him by his adoptive parents was no less than if they would have been his birthparents. In recent years, he has reconnected with his birth mother, and we enjoy a very pleasant relationship with her. Lance will have the privilege of sharing a special bond with your child being that he is adopted himself.
Thank you for taking the time to read about us and to find out more about our family. The choices that you are making right now are some of the most difficult choices you will ever be faced with, and you need to make sure that the family you choose is going to be the best for your child. Although we have never met, you are constantly in our minds and our prayers as we try to imagine what you must be going through. We truly empathize with you and can assure you that your unborn child would be a welcome addition to our family, and we will love him/her with all of our hearts.
Jackie and Lance
