Dear Birthparent,

I appreciate you taking the time to read my letter. This must be a difficult decision for you and I admire your strength. My hope that this small snapshot into my life and family will provide some comfort to know you are making the right choice for your baby. I have friends who have adopted and I see the relationship they have developed with their child. I see how much they love their children and how quickly they bonded. I too have dreamed of becoming a parent this way and hope you will consider me.

Barbara & Butch

Barbara & Butch

Hi!!

We are Barbara & Butch – or as friends and family call us B&B! Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. As you go through this emotional process, hopefully you will consider us as the couple right to adopt your baby and that we can ease your mind about your baby’s future during this difficult time.

We met in July of 1999 – it was love at first sight! However, we really didn’t start dating until September
because each of us went on already planned family vacations in July and August. But once we started
seriously seeing each other, we quickly became very close.

Dear Birthparents,

Thank you for taking the time to read this letter. It must be an incredibly overwhelming process, choosing an adoptive family for your baby, and even though we can’t begin to imagine what you are going through right now, we want you to know how much respect and admiration we have for you. Not everyone has the strength to choose adoption; in fact, you belong to a very special group of people. We know you must have a lot of questions, and more than anything we want you to feel comfortable with your decision. We hope this letter will show you how much love and warmth and laughter we have to share with the baby who will make our family complete.

Dear Birth Parent,

We are Clare and Alex, and we are grateful you are taking the time to consider us as parents for your child. We have done our best to understand what a difficult decision you are making now, and in return we hope to show you who we are, so you may feel assured that we can provide a home and a family for your child that is loving, safe, and stable.

Linda & Mike

Linda & Mike

Hello,

We are Linda and Mike, a happily married couple looking to expand our family through adoption. Thank you for taking the time to read our letter. We hope that it provides a glimpse into our lives and offers you the opportunity to learn more about our family. We have a seven-year old biological son, William. We truly adore him and love being his parents, however we always envisioned having more than one child in our family. After struggling with infertility both before William was born, as well as in the years after, we feel that adoption would be a wonderful way of adding to our family (not to mention the fact that William would love to become a big brother!).

Marci & Paul

Marci & Paul

Dear Birth Mother,

We are thankful for everything we have and feel blessed to have our son Joshua. Our lives are full but there is an open space in our hearts that we yearn to fill with a second child. We are ecstatic about the opportunity to expand our family through adoption. The road of life twists and turns and no two directions are ever the same. Yet our lessons come from the journey, not the destination. Our journey has brought us here to you. We hope that during this difficult and emotional time you will give us the honor of considering our family to love and care for your baby.

Jen & Prem

Thank you for taking the time to get to know us. We wish you a safe and easy pregnancy and delivery.
