Dear Expectant Mother,
We are Jason & Katie & today, the paths of our lives are crossing with yours through this letter. Our path has included big hopes & dreams for our family, a cancer diagnosis, a life changing surgery that both took away the cancer & took away any chance of us getting pregnant. Then in 2018, we were honored to become parents, through adoption, to our daughter Rosie. We don’t know the details of your life, but we know that you are in the midst of some big decisions & that you love the child growing inside you very much. Our paths are different, but today, they intersect as we decide our paths forward.
To let you know a little about us, we have been married for 6 years & live in a warm, four-bedroom home in the cul-de-sac of a tree lined street full of families & kids. We met in Ethiopia when we both worked for a Christian ministry & we hit it off from the start. We dated in Arkansas, & a year later were engaged. Our wedding day was on a beautiful fall day surrounded by colorful trees with all of our friends & family. Since then, we have moved to the Austin area where Jason is an engineer & Katie is a stay at home mom. Katie loves being a stay at home mom & is excited to continue to do so as we, hopefully, grow our family. On the weekends, we enjoy exploring Austin & finding big, open parks & cozy coffee shops where we can spend the day as a family. Our favorite place to visit is the beach where we go several times a year. We feel so honored to have the titles "mama" & "daddy" & know our daughter will be such a great sister. Our families adore our daughter & are so excited about us growing our family through adoption again.
In January of 2017, after trying to get pregnant for over a year, Katie was diagnosed with cancer. Katie's doctor said it was treatable but to get rid of the cancer, Katie had to have a surgery that would also end any chance of having biological children. We already had a desire to adopt as we both have family members that have been adopted & have adopted children. Although cancer was a devastating journey, once we had the cancer behind us we were so thankful to become parents through adoption & are so grateful to continue to grow our family again.
We would love to meet you, hear your story, & share more of ours. We are open to whatever type of communication you feel comfortable with. If you select us as parents, we would be happy to maintain a relationship with you through pictures & letters throughout the child’s life & as you feel comfortable, we would be more than willing to have a more open relationship with you as well. We are praying for you as you make these difficult decisions & as you plan the path for your life moving forward, we pray it is a life full of hope.
Jason & Katie
