Dear Birth Mother,
We want you to know how much we admire you and the strength and love you are showing your child by choosing adoption. We are so grateful that you have chosen to consider us to be parents for your baby.
We have both dreamed of being dads for so long and know that adoption is the right path for us to become fathers. We want to share with you the future we see as dads to your baby, so that you can get a sense of what their life could be like with us as their fathers.
We imagine a future of afternoons flying kites in the park, walks along the beach to pick up seashells, Sunday night movies with Chinese food, singing songs together around the piano, and trips to the lake to ride in the boat. Our days will also be filled with hide-and-seek on the playground, baseball games at the ballpark, and movies in the theatre with lots of popcorn and candy. These will be some of the ways he or she will build memories with family and friends.
Your baby will join a big extended family of 21 cousins and grandparents, aunts and uncles that will amplify that love. Growing up, your child will have the opportunity to learn Spanish and French from Carlos as well as take piano and singing lessons with Jeremiah. We’ll encourage your child’s interests and talents whatever he or she chooses to pursue and we will be our kid’s number one fans!
In all these scenes we imagine there is one constant – the love and laughter that will fill your child’s life. No matter what, we will love your baby unconditionally. Your child will always know he or she is wanted and that you gave us the greatest gift anyone could by helping to make us dads. We will make sure that your baby knows their story and that your decision was made with love.
We are sending you and your baby so much love. Thank you for considering us.
Carlos & Jeremiah
