Mark & Paola’s Letter

Dear Birth Mom,

We are so happy that you are considering us as an adoptive family for your baby. Giving your child the gift of life is an incredible act of selfless love. We know this is a difficult time for you and we are so humble and grateful to be part of this amazing process. Although we have not met, we have been praying for you and your child. We believe God is working to bring together the right family for your baby. Unfortunately, we are not able to have children together and this precious, selfless act will give this baby a home that is filled with love and attention. Thank you for considering us as a possible family for your child and we have an amazing respect for you and your decision.

We are a very loving and compassionate family. We put God and family first. My husband Mark has 3 older children. The youngest daughter (16) still lives with us. The older two are adults and live on their own. We have a home and lifestyle that is built around raising children. We have spent virtually all of our time around the kids, including their friends. Our home is very inviting and the only thing missing is another little one to join our family. There is no doubt that they will feel loved. Your baby will feel like they are the most important thing in the world because we are so focused on spending quality time with them.

Children are very important to us. Kids have always been close to our hearts and we want so much to continue to bring joy to you and your child through this very special situation.

I am the coordinator of children’s ministry at our church. I believe that God has called me to be a spiritual mother to the little ones I serve at church. I absolutely love what I do and I embrace my ministry with so much joy. I think God has a perfect plan for each of us. This opportunity came into my life during one of the most difficult times of my life as I was grieving of the loss of my Dad and the sadness of not been able to conceive our baby after so many tries.

My husband, Mark, has been a loving, committed father virtually all of his adult life. Now that his children are almost all grown, he is ready to bring more joy and opportunities to another child. He always makes his family feel like they are the most important part of his world. Although I do not have biological children of my own, I feel very blessed for these kids and I consider them my own. They continue to bring so much joy and meaning to my life. I love them with all my heart.

My husband Mark and I adore children and love being the best Mom and Dad we can be. These are difficult times and difficult decisions and we have great faith that God will bless you and your child during this time. Again thank you so much for considering us as
a great choice for your baby. We are very excited to be part of something so special.

You are in our prayers and may God always bless you.

Mark & Paola
