To Someone Special,
"Life is a collection of moments. Some good, some sad, and some unforgettable." --Bhawana
We are both excited and nervous to be on this journey. This is new to us, as it may or may not be new to you. We always try to make our house a haven of safety and peace. We like to have our dinner at the table with each other. We like to spend a lot of time with our familes and with each other. There are many kids in the community, and there will be many opportunities for cuts and bruises and scraped knees at the parks, but also times for tears of joy and happiness as the kids grow and make friends who will love and support them.
We believe the adoption journey is full of hope for all those involved. You have hope that your child will be raised in a good home with lots of fulfilling opportunities. We have hope that we can become parents and raise a family. Your child will grow up having hope that he/she will be blessed with a full and loving life and the chance to understand where they came from.
We look forward to the day that we can have children in our home. We want to raise them to be good people of society that are hard-working and service-oriented. We plan to take them on trips and enjoy the simple adventures of everyday life. We want them to learn to rely on God and know that He loves them and wants to be a part of their lives. We believe in giving them a good education, even from the youngest age. We want our children to grow up to be independent and self-sufficient. But more importantly, they will grow up knowing they are loved and cared for and we will be there to support them in whomever they become. We would like to have an open adoption where our child will always know where they came from. We know it is a relationship that will evolve over time just like any other relationship, but we hope that the birth parents and the birth family can remain a part of our lives.
We have talked about having children since before we were married, but have been unable to get pregnant. Even before going through all the infertility treatments, we talked about how adoption might be in our future. We both felt like adoption was the journey we would eventually take. We know that it can be a beautiful miracle that blesses more lives than our own.
We have prepared ourselves in a way that we can give unconditional love to a child and also the stability of a caring and loving home. We feel we are financially prepared to take on this important role as parents, and give a child a fulfilling life.
We understand this is likely the biggest decision you have had to make because this will not only affect your child’s life but also your future as well. We want you to know that even if you feel we are not the right fit for your child, we wish you the best and hope that you can find the best family to raise your child. We are praying for you!
