Your Birth Mother Letter:
Dear Expectant Mother,
Thank you for taking the time to get to know a little about us through this letter. We cannot imagine how you are feeling now and that this must be the hardest decision you have ever made. We are sure that you want only the very best for your child. We deeply respect the courage and love it takes for you to make this decision. We want you to know that we will do everything in our power to give your child a wonderful, meaningful and stable life.
Our names are Brian and Jessica and we have been married for 12 years. We are a team and have a loving relationship. We love to joke with each other and laugh. We’ve always wanted a family and to our regret, have been unsuccessful. Once we realized that we would never have a child of our own, we began discussing adoption. We believe things happen for a reason and this is the path we are supposed to be on. We have a positive outlook on life; we know change happens and we adapt and keep going. We feel we are prepared to raise a family and we know when things are tough, we can count on each other because we are in this together. We have close relationships with our parents and both families are supportive and encourage our decision to grow our family through adoption.
Our family is extended, but very close. Jessica’s includes her mother, father, sister and brother -in -law. Brian’s includes his mother, brother, sister- in -law, two sisters and brother- in- laws, 3 nieces and 4 nephews. His father died when he was 16. While distance plays a role, we are very close and communicate on a weekly basis. We/they travel as much as we can to be able to spend time together as family is everything to us.
This is Jessica: I am an occupational therapist where I help others have a better quality of life. While I work primarily with elderly patients, they become like family to me. I have strong relationships with both my patients and their families. I hope to teach a child how to be kind and caring to others as I try to be on a daily basis. I love to spend time with family, visit with friends, travel, read, walk the beach, pick shells with Brian and go to amusement parks. I love to ride the roller coasters with my nieces and nephews. They often refer to me as the coolest aunt.
This is Brian: My father in law and I have a family landscaping business. I also have a passion for music; my taste in music is as widespread as that in my relationships. I love it/them all! In addition to being a landscaper, I am also a DJ. I love to volunteer at nursing homes and schools to bring happiness, smiles and laughter through music. I love to spend time with family, especially my nieces and nephews, in which we are called the best aunt and uncle! I love doing anything outdoors and watch the Steelers play.
We have learned through our families that children are the most important part of our future. We know the challenges that come with having a child as well and we are mentally, physically and financially prepared to do what we need to do to ensure stability in a child’s life. We know that raising a child isn’t easy and that today’s child faces more obstacles both academically and socially. Again, we are fortunate to have experience and empathy in those areas as our nephew is on the autism spectrum. We have been an active part of his life and his success as an individual. We continue to be active parts of all of our niece’s and nephew’s lives, no matter how great the distance.
We have a one story home in South Carolina. It is simple, but has plenty of space and a backyard for a child to play. We live in a family oriented neighborhood with children running around and riding their bikes. We live close by to good schools, beaches and parks. We want to provide a child with the same kind of sense of belonging, comfort and love that we have known in our families. Together we will nurture a child to be kind, loving, responsible and independent person. We are excited to become parents and to provide a good home to our son or daughter throughout his/her life. We appreciate you taking the time to read our letter and look at our profile. In addition, we are comfortable with sharing milestones and pictures as he/she grow.
With best regards,
Brian and Jessica
