Dear Birth Mother, We are so humbled, nervous, and excited as we write this letter to you. We cannot imagine what you are experiencing right now--all the emotions, decisions to make, physical feelings, hormones . . .Please know that we have so much respect for you and the difficult decision you are making. We pray that as you go through this process you will feel clarity, and a sense of peace. Now we want to share a bit about ourselves and thank you for considering us as a potential home for your sweet little one. We have always said we wanted to adopt a child. This prayer was in our hearts even before we were married in 2020 and we agreed adoption would be in our future. When we decided we were ready for children, we soon found out that adoption was God's first choice for us and we are excited! It turns out that I have infertility due to anovulation and hormone imbalance. Since adoption was already a desire of our hearts, we decided not to pursue in-vitro or other fertility treatments and trust that God has a child needing a home through adoption. Max and I met shortly after I moved to Colorado from Texas in 2019. He pursued me and our relationship quickly grew as we realized how much we had in common, our values and love for family aligned, and our desire to create a Godly family drew us together. Max has a graduate degree in business and has been working and moving up in leadership at his company in this field. I am a nurse who works in labor, postpartum, NICU, and pediatric specialties at a local hospital as well as having recently begun a private practice as a professional counselor, specializing in play therapy with children and teens.
We are active in our church and attend regular service and Bible studies. We are very close with both of our families and most all trips are shared with our parents and/or siblings. We have nieces and nephews who are looking forward to having a new cousin to play with. My sister and her family live in town with us and they are also very active and we spend a lot of time exploring Colorado's great outdoors with their family. We hope to have an open relationship with you, though it would depend on your comfort level. Thank you for even considering this path of adoption and I pray God leads you to the best decision for you and your child. We also want you to know that we care about YOU and, if you desire, would love to stay connected with you as your child grows and support and encourage you on life's journey onward. We are praying for you no matter what decision you make.
Lots of Love and Prayers, Max and Michelle You may view our profile book on Shutterfly at this link: http://www.shutterfly.com/share-product/?shareid=7c92a871-629e-4c01-bb68-95a9a2b1360d&cid=SHARPRDWEBORDLNK
