Imma & Jerry

Imma & Jerry

Dear Birth Mother:

We are Imma and Jerry and we thank you for your attention and the time you are dedicating in reading our letter.

We want you to know that we understand the difficult decision you are making. We respect and admire your decision to make an adoption plan. Even though we don't know each other we have a lot in common which is the desire to give your child the best life possible.

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.

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.

Sylvia

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.

Zaida & Charlie

Zaida & Charlie

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.

Clare & Rich

Clare & Rich

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.

Laura and Matt

Laura & Matt

Hello,

Our names are Matt, Laura and Andrew. We are grateful for the opportunity to write to you about our family and our hopes to adopt your child. We have been married for six years, and we have a nearly four year-old biological son, Andrew. We have a large space in our hearts for another baby, and we are looking forward to welcoming a child into our family through adoption.

Elaine and Mike

Elaine & Mike

Dear Birth Parents,

We have never met you, but we understand that you are making a difficult decision. We hope that you are able to find the support and love that you need as you face this challenge.

We are Mike and Elaine. We met in 2004 and have built a strong relationship filled with love, laughter, and a deep commitment to each other.

Claudia and Geri

Claudia & Geri

Hello,

We are Claudia and Geri. We are living in Austria, the heart of Europe surrounded by beautiful mountains and a wonderful nature.

When we married, our ceremony was held in a little chapel in the mountains. The sun was shining and it was a very romantic, beautiful day. After our wedding, we hoped to soon expand our family. Unfortunately our desire for conceiving didn't come true. We went through a roller coaster of emotions: hope, frustration, strength, sadness, and heartbreak. We imagine that you too have been through many different emotional stages. We admire your brave choice to find a safe, loving home for your child and understand what a big and difficult decision you have before. For us, your child would be the greatest gift anyone could ever give us. The very thought about this gift brings the sun back in our life.

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.
