Dear Expectant Mother,
First, we want to thank you for choosing life for your child. You are so incredibly brave and we admire you so much. We know this is a difficult decision and want to let you know how much we appreciate all you have already sacrificed on this journey. We can only imagine how hard this choice is for you. As you go through this journey, we want you to know that you are not alone and we are praying for you. We are praying that you will have comfort and peace. Thank you for considering us as a family for your child. Adoption has been a part of our plan since we were engaged. We planned to have biological children first, but due to infertility we were not able to. Instead of doing infertility treatments we decided to accelerate our adoption plans. Largely due to our faith and understanding about being adopted into God's family, we feel that is our example for adopting.
Bret and I met on a Wednesday night at church in the fall of 2010. We were initially attracted to each other, but neither of us were looking for a relationship. A friendship developed first, and we appreciated the thoughtful conversations we had after church and began dating a few months later. We were married in the summer of 2012. We enjoy spending time together hiking in the mountains with our dog Silas, traveling, cooking, and gardening.
Our home is a cozy 3 bedroom split level ranch in an established neighborhood with lots of trees. We have a large backyard that is fenced in and a small park next to the house where we often go and walk. Hospitality is very important to us and we love to gather people in our home.
We want to thank you for taking the time to read our letter. We desire to build a family and hopefully adopt additional children in the future and want to show the love, stability, understanding, and fullness we received growing up. Thank you again for considering us. You are in our prayers.
Bret and Beth
