Dear expectant parent(s),

Thank you so much for the research you have put into the adoption process and for taking the time to look at our profile! We greatly admire the selflessness and courage it takes to make an adoption plan for your child and we have so much respect for you in making this decision. We expect that this will be the hardest and most important decision concerning your child you will ever make. We hope this letter gives you a glimpse into our lives, and why we want to share our family's love with your child.

After 6 years of growing our relationship as husband and wife, we were blessed with a son, who is now 3. We love raising Jace and have had so many great experiences in parenting him. As Christians, God is the center of our family and we believe in raising our children with Christ-centered values. We are so excited about the prospect of bringing another child into our home to love and care for, and Jace is just as excited as we are and he constantly talks about how he will care for a baby brother or sister.

Soon after delivering Jace, doctors discovered that we have a rare issue that would make all future pregnancies high risk. A little over 2 years ago, we were overjoyed to learn we would be welcoming a little girl into our family. During weekly monitoring, it was decided a procedure was needed to save our baby's life. However, there were complications during and after that led to our daughter being stillborn.

After grieving for our child for over a year, we had to make a very hard decision on how our family would proceed. We knew we still wanted another child, but that it did not seem right to put another baby at risk to grow our family. We believe that God has opened the door in our hearts to experience the joy of loving another child through adoption.

We are not naive in thinking that adoption is easy or painless. As a parent who has carried a child and felt her kick and move, and then gave birth knowing we would never have the opportunity to raise her, we know that that type of pain doesn't fade easily.

We have different heartbreaks and different stories than you. However, the special thing about adoption is how it can take heartbreak from both sides and turn it into something new and beautiful. The birth date of your child does not have to be the end of the story but rather the beginning of a new story, one about new friendships, joined families, and healing along the way.

Although we are still strangers right now, we want you to know that you and your child are loved and prayed for daily. We pray for strength, wisdom and peace for you as you go down this road. And while we don't know your story yet, we would truly be honored to be a part of it. Thank you so much for considering us to enter into this incredible journey with you.
