Dear Expectant Mother,
We are Andrew and Amanda; we are so excited to share a snapshot of our lives with you. First, we want to thank you for having the courage and the love to place your child for adoption. We appreciate the care that you are taking to select a family that will give your baby all that you wish for him or her. We are humbled and blessed to be considered as you make this difficult and courageous decision.
Andrew and I married 10 years ago. We married as best friends. We grew up together in northern Minnesota. Although we didn’t date until college, I remember sitting together in our first grade Sunday school class thinking, “I am going to marry this boy some day.” Needless to say, I was thrilled when he chose me to be his wife! We built our relationship on God’s love. Our friendship only grows stronger each year.
We began a family shortly after marriage. God blessed us with three biological children who light up our lives. Our children are our highest priority. When Andrew found a local company that values family, we knew it was a perfect fit. He works as a civil engineer and is successful at his career. I hold a nursing degree. I worked for seven years as a registered nurse in an intensive care nursery. I currently love my life as a stay-at-home mom. We value the constant attention and care I provide to our children.
When our desire grew to add another child to our family, God directed our hearts to expand our family through adoption. We are elated to answer His call, and welcome another child into our family to share in the love, joy, and adventure that fills our home. We live in a lovely two-story five bedroom home near parks and bike trails with a great backyard for children to play. Many of our neighbors have small children as well. Our girls have developed great friendships through hours of backyard play with out next-door neighbors.
We recieve much support from our extended families. We are blessed to have most of them living near by. We are also grateful for our church where we have met many families and have gained many close friendships. Some of these friends have adopted children as well.
As adoptive parents we promise to love your child as our own and honor the love for this child that began with you. We will provide your child with a loving, stable home environment, lots of hugs and fun times, and a spiritual and moral foundation in which he or she can grow into a happy, self-confident adult. We pray that all the children God entrusts us to raise and nurture into adults will reflect the character of Jesus Christ in everything they do.
We are thrilled and grateful that you are considering us to welcome your baby into our lives. We will ensure that your child grows to understand and respect your courage and selflessness. We are praying for you, knowing you are making some very difficult decisions. We pray that you have peace in all the choices you make. We look forward to meeting with you and would be happy to keep in touch over the years. We will work with you in this area to respect your wishes.
Andrew and Amanda
