Dear Expectant Mother,
Thank you for taking the time to look at our profile. The decision that is on your shoulders is tremendous. Though there is no way for us to possibly know what a hard decision you are about to make, we just want you to know that we will be there to try and support you as much as we can along the way. You have already been in our daily prayers, that God can give you the strength, peace, and clarity that you need during this time. We hope that by reading this letter that you will be able to imagine the unconditional love that your child would experience with us.
We are Jason and Courtney, and we have been married for over 8 years. We met long ago through mutual friends and everything just fell into place. Once we started seeing each other, it didn’t take long to realize we were right for each other. From the day we met, we would always talk about growing our family and dream about all the things we would do together. Unfortunately, due to complications, Courtney is unable to have children, but we believe everything happens for a reason, and that this is the path we are meant to be on.
We live in an area where we get to enjoy all four seasons. Our favorite seasons of course are spring, summer, and early fall where we get to enjoy more of the outdoors with our close family and friends. We love the small things like enjoying time with family by a campfire, or making an incredible meal on the grill with friends. We love being out on the water during the summer, either boating or just enjoying the shore. Come fall, all the colors change on the leaves and it’s just a beautiful time to be out and about. We are close to many apple orchards where we can get fresh apple cider and apple cinnamon donuts while enjoying the pumpkin carving, a petting zoo, and a corn maze. As winter arrives, our community turns into a winter wonderland. We having skiing, snowshoeing, sledding, ice skating, snowman building, and amazing ice sculptures. During the winter we also try to plan a vacation to somewhere warm to break up the coldness and enjoy some of that sunshine that we both love. We lose time just thinking of introducing a baby into these activities, dreaming and imagining all the memories and fun we can create together.
We live fairly close to both our families, Courtney’s parents live just 10 minutes away, her brother and niece live just 5 minutes down the road and Jason’s parents live about an hour away. Because we live so close to them we spend a lot of time with them and our close family-like friends. Both of us have great memories growing up with our families and can’t wait to pass those traditions down.
Your little blessing will have opportunities to grow, learn, experience new things, and travel the world. If you choose this path and you choose us, this is the beginning of when your story meets ours. You will forever be in our hearts and your child will know how much you loved them every day of their life. We imagine rocking your little one to sleep and sharing the story of how we met. What a beautiful story that will be!
Jason & Courtney
