From My Heart to Yours,
Thank you for taking the time to learn about me. I cannot imagine what you are experiencing right now as an expectant mother making the choice of open adoption.
I acknowledge the strength and courage it takes to consider open adoption. I am adopting because I have always dreamed of having my own family. I was unable to have children naturally, and felt called to pursue adoption as I have dear friends who have adopted and are excited for me to join them on this path. Their joy and fulfillment continue to inspire me. I want to welcome you and your child into my heart and hope we develop a relationship that will last a lifetime.
My Promise to You:
My child will always know her or his adoption story and the wonderful way we became a family.
I promise to create a home filled with warmth and security, so she or he will grow into a happy, confident and strong adult.
I promise to create a life full of traditions and celebrations, including those from my family and culture, your family and culture, as well as new ones that my child and I create together, so my child will know who we are as a family and value his or her family of origin.
I promise to instill in my child an appreciation for the beauty to be found in each day to foster peace and balance in his or her life.
I promise that my child will know love, diversity and respect from our village of support.
Finally, I will provide unconditional love and support so she or he can feel comfortable asking questions and exploring every aspect of life.
Thank you so much for reading about me, and considering me as your child’s adoptive mom. I want you to know that I am prepared for the blessing of raising a child of my own. I am dedicated to honoring your role and giving my child the chance to see how truly loved he or she is by both you and me.
I am a firm believer in nurturing play, cultivating knowledge and honoring nature. For all of these reasons, I believe I have something very special to offer a child.
I will read with my child, I will play with my child, and I will spend quality time with my child. I will be attentive to their challenges and struggles as they grow. Providing a child with the opportunities to feel safe exploring the world, to feel free to develop his or her imagination, and to dream her or his biggest dreams while experiencing unconditional love, would be the greatest gift!
I will always be grateful to you for considering the path of open adoption.
Let’s do this together!
