We wanted to start by saying “thank you” for taking the time to read our story. We know you have such an important, life-changing decision to make, and we cannot even begin to imagine the weight of it. While we are so eager to be mamas, we hope you know that, whatever choice you make, our greatest hope in this moment is for your heart to find peace and your mind to feel at ease. We suppose this is part of the “uniqueness” of the adoption journey: that we already feel such a deep love and connection for you, although we’ve never met. We long to encourage you, to acknowledge the difficulty of the decision you are making, and to come alongside you however we can. Maybe one day we will not only be friends, but family.
Even though you are only “meeting us” through pictures and words, we hope you will see we love without condition, and that this is a love we promise to share with you and your child if our lives should join together. We hope you might see yourself in these pages and that one day you might feel as much a part of our family as we hope to feel a part of yours. We’re sending whatever love we can to you right now.
