John & Courtnie’s Letter

Dear birth mother,

Thank you for taking the time to look through our life book. Somehow “thank you” doesn’t seem like enough to say to you while you face this incredibly tough decision. We know that by choosing to make the decision of adoption that you want what’s best for your child and we greatly respect your desire to find the right family to love and cherish your baby.

We are hopeful you will consider us to be that family.

Our greatest hope has been to become parents. We can’t wait to expand our small family and bring a child into our home. We have so much love to give.

We have been blessed with a loving marriage. God brought us together and we have worked hard everyday to grow together and build a strong bond. We will, of course, do the same thing with our child. We want our child to have every opportunity in life. We want to pass on to our child life’s important lessons of compassion, honesty, love, working hard and giving back to others.

We are blessed to be part of a caring, supportive family. And we have the most amazing group of friends. All of these people are close to our hearts and are excited to be a part of our journey through adoption.

We have a warm, cozy home full of laughter. We have three sweet, gentle loving dogs. We know it will be a safe, secure environment to build a strong, loving family.

The only blessing we are missing is a child. We can’t wait for that moment when God chooses us to step up to the roll of parenthood. We truly welcome your involvement in an open adoption to a level you are comfortable with. And please know that you will always be honored and respected in our family. This child will know that it is so very loved by all.
