Dear Expectant Mother,
Thank you for considering us as a family and we appreciate that you are taking the time to get to know us. We are going to be completely honest and tell you that we have no clue what to write because we don't know each other yet but we hope we get the chance to. To start, we want you to know that we can't pretend to know how it feels to walk in you shoes but we can relate to the feelings of being overwhelmed, scared, conflicted or nervous you may be having.
We have been married since 2004 and we have wanted to start a family for some time now. Becoming parents has been a dream of ours for many years. But, sadly after trying for a while without success and a miscarriage we were heartbroken. We gave ourselves some time to heal from the grief of the loss we had experienced. Then we decided to think through our options, out of all the ways to start a family adoption just felt like the right way to do that.
So now we have embarked on this journey to parenthood. We can tell you that any child that we have will be loved unconditionally and taken care of. They will be encouraged to be kind and thoughtful, and to ask questions about who they are. They will also be encouraged to develop their own unique personality, skills and passions.
The emotion and energy you are putting into this decision is unimaginable to us but we truly hope that you have supportive people around you to help you during this process and we wish you the best with your future plans. We look forward to meeting you and answering questions you may have for us.
Kyle and Laerke
