Thank you for considering adoption, and for giving us the opportunity to introduce ourselves to you.

We are honored that you might consider choosing us as the adoptive family for your baby. We have chosen adoption because we believe that through fate, destiny and a greater power, "our" child will come to us, and we will be able to impart our love and knowledge to help him or her throughout life.

Dear birth parents,

It is difficult to start a letter knowing that somewhere in the United States, there is a loving parent who must be in a very difficult situation, considering an adoption plan for their unborn baby.

I'm single, 44 years old, living in Austria and I always wanted to have a family. Somehow it happened that I did not meet the partner who I could build a family with. Having read and heard a lot about adoption here in Austria, adoption was an easy decision for me.

Heather & Jason

Heather & Jason

Dear Birthmother,

This must be a diffucult time in your life, and we would not pretend to know what you are going through. But with this letter we want to introduce you to our loving family, which we hope to expand through adoption.

Dear Birthparent,

We would like to begin by expressing our admiration for the strength it takes on your behalf to consider adoption for your baby. It is a courageous and selfless decision and we would be honored, to be considered as a family for your child. It is our hope with this letter, to provide you with a picture of what life with our family would be like for your baby. We will also tell you a little about ourselves prior to starting our family. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to introduce our family to you.

Dear Birth Parent,

Our names are Rich and Clare, and we live in a laughter-filled home with our 3-year-old son, Liam. We know there is another child out there that would thrive as part of our warm, loving, fun-loving family.

If we end up being lucky enough to bring your child into our home, we will spend the rest of our lives loving your child, taking care of them, and giving them a place in the world where they are secure, safe and comforted, knowing that the decision you made was out of love and concern.

It's funny how life doesn't always turn out as expected but the result turns out for the best. Call it fate, destiny or coincidence; our lives will be forever intertwined.

I am forever honored and grateful you are considering me in this important decision. No one can truly understand the range of emotions you are experiencing but please know through this journey, you are brave beyond belief, and I admire your selflessness. Along the way, my hope is to provide you with encouragement, guidance and comfort. Upon reading my profile, you will gain some insight into my life and have confidence in my capabilities to surround your child with forever love, endless laughter and unconditional support and security to lead a full life.

Gail and Kris

Gail and Kris

Dear Birth Parent,

Thank you so much for looking at our profile. We cannot fully comprehend the impossibly hard decision you are making, to chose adoption for your child, but we cetainly admire your courage and bravery. We are honored that you are taking the time to get to know us and considering us as the family for your son or daughter. We have spent many unsuccessful years trying to grow our family in the conventional way, and we both know that the time is now right for us to adopt a child.

We have friends and family who have adopted children and since Kris was adopted himself, we are certain that adoption is the best choice for us. We understand that you want the best for your child, and we are excited to offer him or her our unconditional love and an opportunity to thrive in a loving, caring home.
