To Someone Special,
It’s really nice to meet you. Thank you for taking the time to get to know me and for considering me as someone who could be a part of this child’s life.
I know this must be an incredibly hard decision and I can’t tell you how much I respect you for how you’re facing it and thinking about all the possible options. When I think about you and how much love you must have to consider this, my heart wells up with admiration.
I’ve been thinking – you and I probably have more in common than we’d expect. We both find ourselves in a situation that we didn’t plan on and that requires us to make a really big, somewhat scary, choice. While I grew up with several adopted cousins and always thought I might adopt as a part of having a family one day, I never imagined I’d find myself starting a family on my own. I’ve always had a picture in my mind of me and my husband and our kids. There isn’t one big moment that led me to be here, writing to you, hoping to adopt a child. I guess it was more of a realization that maybe life doesn’t have to go in a certain order. Maybe it can zig-zag a bit. And, I can wait to meet the right man, but I just don’t want to wait to be a mom any longer!
I know this is a really hard decision. I’m here if you want to talk about it and I’m thinking about you as you try to figure out what to do. Thank you for even considering this option, and for taking the time to read a little about me.
