Michael and Jennifer
Dear Birth Parent,
We want to thank you for considering adoption for your child. We are amazed at your courage to do the right thing, choosing LIFE for your baby. We can’t even imagine how difficult this decision must be for you. Thank you for your willingness to take the more difficult road and make sacrifices, in order to do what is right for the life growing inside of you. You are such an admirable woman who deserves so much respect. We hope you know that and that you will not let anyone ever tell you otherwise.
You are probably curious as to why we want to adopt. After 5 years of trying to conceive we were told by doctors that it would never happen naturally. Through the miracle of IVF, we were finally able to get pregnant. In November 2010 Jennifer was able to give birth to our only child, a baby boy. Those 5 years were the toughest years we have ever experienced. Month after month when the failed pregnancy tests came back we mourned the “loss” of a child. Now we are yearning for a second child. We feel that it is God’s plan for us to have another child through adoption. Jennifer also feels that adoption is our way of thanking birth mothers for choosing adoption verses abortion.
Now a little about us . . . Our names are Jennifer and Michael. Jennifer is 29 years old, and Michael is 38 years old. We live in a suburban area with our 1 year old son. Jennifer is employed as a teacher; Michael is employed as a Fire Fighter. One of the best perks about our jobs is that we both get to be at home with our children very often. When we are not working, we plan on taking the children to do many activities! We love being active and doing fun things. We also love to travel. Our son has already been in 8 states! We are currently planning a trip to Disney World. We want to instill in our children a desire to discover and explore.
On a more serious note, we also plan to raise our children in a home that prioritizes unconditional love, education, and morals. Unconditional love means loving each other, no matter what happens. Along with unconditional love, there is open- communication. We believe that all families should talk every single day. Also, education is important to us. We plan on making sure our children receive the best education they can get. Finally, morals are at the top of the priorities list. We want our children to know what is right and what is wrong.
In closing, we just want to say thank you again. If you choose us, please know that you are giving us the greatest gift a family could ever be given, a child. We would be so grateful and consider this a true miracle and blessing.
Jennifer and Michael
