Your Birth Mother Letter:
Dear Future, God Chosen Birth Mother,
While we will never be able to grasp the emotions you experience as a birth mother, we will forever recognize you and admire the everlasting courage and strength that you have and the dedication and unconditional love you share for your child. We strive for you to know just how special you are and the positive impact you will have on our lives in helping us to expand our family, a blessing less likely to be granted without you. We promise to take our roles as your child’s adoptive parents very seriously and to not only be the best adoptive parents for your child, but to be the best adoptive parents for you.
Our loving hearts and serving spirits crave the opportunity to expand our family. We have been blessed with adopting our son, and through this experience, we are eager for our son to have a sibling to experience life’s journey with. Our first adoption experience was so incredibly positive that we would love nothing more than to adopt again. One of the most remarkable awakenings experienced from our first adoption was recognizing the true gift that our birth mother was and will always be in our hearts. We share this with you because we aim for you to know how greatly our hearts have been touched by becoming adoptive parents and being able to celebrate this blessing, but also in having the opportunity to celebrate the greatness of you as our future birth mother.
We are absolutely thrilled for the opportunity to expand our family. We desire nothing more than to unconditionally love and support your child, foster their personal development and satisfaction, and encourage the pursuit of their dreams. We excitedly await the days when we can attend and engage in his or her hobbies and extracurricular activities, spend quality time talking and laughing over family dinner while hearing about his or her day at school, building everlasting memories on family vacations, playing games or enjoying family movie nights, and developing family traditions to celebrate holidays and birthdays. We recognize the blessing of being parents and live each day to serve as role models for our son and your child, emphasizing the role of compassion, respect for others, integrity and faith in daily practices. We will nurture a home environment that flourishes through love for one another, celebrates each other’s strengths, promotes honesty and respect for each other’s beliefs, models forgiveness and healing, and allows avenues for personal growth.
We have so many words to express our gratitude to you and the love and commitment you have for your child. You are an incredibly admirable woman, one in whom we will always cherish and honor in everything we do. We are hopeful for the opportunity to welcome your child into our family and unconditionally love him or her with every ounce of our being. Thank you for considering us as your child’s adoptive parents and most importantly, thank you for being you, you are exceptionally special!
Mike and Melissa
