All my respect and thanks to the birth mother of our future child
To the birth mother of our future child:
I wanted to start with the word "our" because you're going to give birth to a child that will always be a part of you and that your family and you will always love and remember.
I will always remember that this child came from you, from your pregnancy, from your love and care and from your thoughtful decision. I'll always remember that you have a family too and that adoption affects them as well.
Please know that you would always be present in our lives. I'm open to thinking it through together and deciding with you what's best for everyone involved.
I will support this child in knowing you and your life, that you're part of him or her and that he or she will always be part of you.
This child will always know how much I respect and appreciate your decision. Your child will always know that your love led you to want the best life possible for him or her.
Whatever your situation is, I know it's very hard, sometimes sad, confusing and easy to be hard on yourself. I know from personal experience.
It didn't work out for me to have my own children. I had my ex-boyfriend's children in my life for six years. I love them. They're two amazing teenage boys, but the time was way too short.
Whatever else happens, your love and care for this baby is a huge, wonderful thing. The fact that you would consider trusting this child to someone like me who will dearly love, cherish and support him or her is probably the most important decision you'll make in life.
Please remind yourself that you're brave, strong and beautiful. Remind yourself that you're going to do the best thing, whatever that is.
Please try to have love and patience for yourself as you consider your options and make decisions. I understand that planning an adoption will be hard. I hope I can help. I respect your decision process.
If it works out, I want you to know that your child will be adored, treasured and respected, surrounded by a huge loving family and given wonderful life opportunities.
I hope I can give you a glimpse of my life, personality, family and values. Beyond that, I look forward to getting to know each other. Please feel free to ask me any questions.
Thank you again. With all my heart and thanks, I look forward to meeting you and starting what I hope will be a long relationship.
