Dear Expectant Mama,
We do not know you, but we know you are brave. And we don’t know your story, but we’re confident you’re stronger than you believe. And we don’t know all the circumstances, but we know beyond a shadow of a doubt that you are a truly incredible mother and want what is best for your beautiful baby.
You are likely facing one of the most difficult and impossible decisions of your entire life. So although, we have yet to talk face to face or know your story or hear your voice, we already know we have an immense respect and admiration for the person and mother that you are.
If we met you in person we’d probably ask you if we could give you a hug...we’re huggers over here, but for now we’ll share a bit about ourselves. We are Luke and Abby 🙂 In August we will have been married 10 years (A decade! We can’t believe it!), and although we’ll be the first to admit marriage hasn’t always been easy for us- we’re committed to each other above all else and love each other more today than we could have even imagined all those years ago. Life truly just keeps getting sweeter and sweeter together. We have two biological children - Everlee (5) who is a thoughtful, crazy smart, and our little artist and Colette (“Cole”2.5), who is a fearless, goofy bundle of pure joy.
Although we never set out to be small business owners, we’ve held the title of “self-employed” for almost 8 years now- thanks to a creative outlet turned full-time business. When we’re not up at our shop, you’ll most likely find us playing outside, exploring our city of Dallas, trying out new restaurants, reading books upon books or at our local library, at a spontaneous dinner with our family (who really just feel like our best friends), or staying active. Admittedly wanderlust addicts, we travel as often as our wallets and business allow, adventure and a thirst for experience significantly marking our family.
By God’s grace, infertility is not part of our story and we have had the honor and privilege of raising two beautiful girls who we adore, yet we’ve always had a strong desire to adopt....even individually before dating. Adoption stories are woven within both of our families, both domestic and international, and we felt connected from day one by our shared heart for diversity. So it feels overwhelmingly surreal and exciting to be with you in this moment. Our deepest hope as prospective adoptive parents is that we’d have an open, communicative and increasingly deep and meaningful relationship with our child’s birth mother.
We are humbled and honored you would pick up our book, a little peek into our family and world. We’ve been praying for you and your little one for months and will continue to that the Lord guides you in this amazing and beautiful decision.
With the greatest fondness and admiration,
Luke and Abby
