Dear Birth Mother, First and foremost, thank you. Thank you for pursuing and making one of the most selfless decisions of your life. We cannot imagine the emotional impact this decision has been on you. Regardless of the choice you make, you are courageous for pursing this option, and we are so thankful that you have considered us. We have known each other for nearly 10 years and have been married for 8 years. Although our careers have required us to make multiple moves, they have given us the ability to financially prepare and plan for our family. Our most recent move, which brought us to West Lafayette, IN, was integral in allowing us to pursue our journey into adoption. We plan to be here for years to come. However, in the event that we decide to move again in the future, we will make it a top priority to keep in touch with you, if that is your desire. We spend as much time as possible with both of our families. Because some of them live in different parts of the country, it has given us the opportunity to travel and visit different areas. We enjoy attending sporting events and going to the lakes. However, we also enjoy staying at home and spending time working out, reading, baking and simply relaxing. We attend church regularly, volunteer in the children’s program and love our church family. We have a young and playful black cat that enjoys people. We have always known that we wanted to be parents. Early in our relationship, we discussed both of our desires to fulfill this plan through either adoption or foster care. Although we are not aware of any infertility issues, our discussions of growing our family have always circled back around to adoption. We have always trusted that our inability to have children biologically was God’s plan for us and have always been at complete peace with and never questioned it. We were extremely blessed to never be questioned by family and friends about when we were going to start a family. Once we announced that we had chosen adoption, nobody questioned our decision; everybody was extremely excited for both of us. There are so many people praying for us during this journey, as well as you and the child/ren that will be joining our family. The one thing that we can guarantee you is that we will not be perfect parents. However, what we can assure you is that we promise to be the best parents that we possibly can be, making the sacrifices needed for the betterment of our child/ren.
Sincerely, Ben & KatieView Profile Book
