Dear Birth Mother,
Thank you so much for taking the time to learn about and consider us as your child’s adoptive parents. It is our hope that this book gives you a glimpse at how much we love each other and how thankful we are for the incredible support system surrounding us. Even though we have never met, we have a tremendous amount of admiration for your strength and courage during this process. We cannot imagine the feelings you have, or will experience, in your decision to plan an adoption for your child. We offer our sincere support during this time. From a very early point in our engagement, we had adoption in our hearts.
We promise that your baby will be loved and cherished, nurtured and guided throughout our lives together. We promise to read to your child and make he or she get a good education. We promise to support him/her in whatever they are passionate about in life. We promise to give hugs every day and surround them with love. We hope that this letter and these photographs provide a glimpse of the loving home we have to offer.
Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to tell you about our dreams for the future. It is important for us to be open with an adopted child about their roots, background and story, and especially to honor the importance of you, their birth mother, in their life. Your trust in us is humbling.
Kindly, Jennifer & Todd
We met in 2014 at a restaurant. We’re both very outgoing and love to talk so we immediately clicked After 3 years of dating, Todd proposed in July 2017. We were married in a beautiful ceremony six months later. We have tried to get pregnant through the years, but have not been successful. We discussed adoption early on in our relationship. Our time together has been special beyond words, but our heart’s desire is to grow our family. We love one another unconditionally and are thrilled to hopefully one day have the opportunity to become parents together.

Our home is in the city nestled in a cul de sac surrounded by a park and walking trails. Our community has exceptional schools, the best elementary school in the city. It is in a very safe and secure area. We are within walking distance to several parks, restaurants, beltlines, and two malls.
We are so fortunate to have very loving and supportive families. Jennifer’s parents have been married for 48 years. She has a younger sister who is her bestfriend! Todd’s parents have been married for 18 years. Todd has one older sister. Family is very important to us. We are all very close. We do the Turkey Trot every year at Thanksgiving. We get together for all holidays every year even though our parents live in different states. Todd and Jennifer love to cook and grill together. We like to take a cooking class together a few times a year. We take walks every Saturday and Sunday and come home and cook a fun breakfast together.

We want to share our blessed life and home with a child that we can love and nurture. We see our own parents love unconditionally and selflessly and believe we have that to give to a child. We think a child can bring so much love and new experiences to our family. We want to share family traditions with a little one as well as create new ones together. We want to guide them and teach them. We want to be flexible, spontaneous, patient, and accepting. We want to communicate with our child in a calm voice. we want to hug and love on the child every day. We want to have fun as a family , try new things, and have happy life experiences. In addition, we want to be parents who encourage the child to dream big, be respectful, and most importantly be the best that he/she can be. We always want the child to know that we support him/her and will always love him/her unconditionally.
Thank you so much for taking your time to invest in learning about us.
We hope that you have gotten a glimpse for the life and home that we desire to share with a child. We know that adoption is the blessing that will grow our family.
