Birthmom Letter

Hello to you! Thank you for taking the time to view our profile. We would like to let you know more about who we are. I, Jill, have wanted to adopt a baby ever since I was a little girl. I was also adopted as a baby, and I always knew that God had blessed me with the gift of life through my birth mother. For the last five years we have experienced infertility, however, we believe that God is calling us to become parents through adoption. We also know that it is important for a child to know where they come from, and we want you to know that we plan on sharing our journey to adoption with your/our child. Our family and friends are very supportive and excited for us to become parents and bring a child into our family. We look forward to sharing our love for God and one another with our child. We would love nothing more than to become parents. We are happy to meet with you and answer any questions you may have. We admire your courage and your love for your baby. We are praying for you both every day.

From Jill – I am a first grade teacher. I’ve been teaching for 11 years and I absolutely love what I do. When working with kids there is never a dull moment. I like to bring love and laughter into my classroom because I think it’s important to do both every day. I like to take my students outside to learn about nature and science whenever possible. I greatly enjoy the time off that I get so that we can travel to visit family and friends. I also look forward to having lots of time off to enjoy staying at home and being a mom. Faith, Family, and Friends are what mean the most to me.     

From Matt – I am a commercial loan officer at a small town local bank. I enjoy giving back to my community by working with businesses and people in the community. My faith and family are the two most important parts of my life. My wife is my best friend and we share a deep love of God together. I also love spending time with the rest of my family and being an uncle to my nieces and nephews. Their love and hugs bring much joy to my heart and make me long to be a dad and bring that love to my own children.

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us. You are not on this journey alone. We know that it is out of your love for your baby that you chose life and are now considering an adoption plan. We promise to give your baby unconditional love and laughter every day. Your baby will be showered with love by all of our family and friends. We have two grandmas nearby who will help with childcare and Jill plans to be a stay at home mom or work part time. We will always feel that your child is a gift from God. If you choose us as parents, your baby will be our greatest gift.
