Dear Expectant Mother,
It is with deepest respect and greatest humility that we write this letter. Adoption is so many different things. It's beautiful and extraordinary. It can also be complicated and messy. Even as adoptive parents, having gone through this before, we experience a wide range of emotion. Excitement, fear, joy, anticipation... we can't begin to imagine the various emotions you are experiencing!
We have the highest admiration and respect for birth mothers. Three years ago we welcomed our beautiful daughter (Austyn Harper) into our home through adoption. We love her birth mom so much and consider her to be a very important part of our family. She has the most amazing strength and courage and the deepest love of anyone we have ever met. And we are so blessed to have her in our lives.
Eric, Austyn, and I live in the South, in a small town on the outskirts of a big city. We own our home and have lived there for over 7 years. We love to be outside, travel, go on walks, and enjoy little, everyday moments together. We both own and run our own businesses and are fortunate enough to operate them from home. Being blessed with so much time freedom allows us to spend precious moments as a family as we know time flies by and children grow up fast.
We have great relationships with everyone in our extended families and see them all as often as possible. Holidays and birthdays are celebrated together with lots of laughter and fun. Depending on your comfort level, we would love to also develop a relationship with you. However, we respect your privacy and will honor any decision you make.

As a birth mother making plans for a child, we know you are in a difficult time of life. We do care and are going to be praying for you. May you be blessed, whatever you decide.
Eric and Brittany
