Dear Birthmother,John and Megon

We are John and Megon, and this is the hardest letter we’ve ever had to write, because we know that in this moment you are in the midst of making some tough decisions for you and the child growing inside of you. Months ago, we were faced with some tough choices as well when we found out that conceiving a child would be extremely difficult or even unlikely. We stood face-to-face with heartache and uncertainty. I’m sure that you have felt similar emotions as well but for different reasons. Both of our circumstances were unplanned and unexpected, but life has an interesting way of bringing people together. Today our paths have met, and we believe it’s for a reason and a purpose.

John and I have been married for almost 5 years. He is my best friend, and we love being around one another. We bought our first house this year and have enjoyed making it our own. We live in the country with lots of woods and creeks but close enough to the city to enjoy the beautiful parks and downtown attractions. My husband works as a technical coordinator for a thriving company. He is also a very talented musician who loves to write and record his own music from his studio at our home. Our house is always filled with beautiful music!

I am a Bible teacher for a non-profit Christian organization. I teach elementary and middle school students. If blessed with a child, I plan to take some time off and transition into a part-time position that will allow me to work from home.

In our spare time, we enjoy sitting on our porch talking, listening to music together, spending time with our families, and laughing with our friends. John and I also teach the middle grades Sunday school class at our church. We have a heart for ministry and a love for people. As we continuously thank God for the life He has blessed us with, we can’t help but have a desire to share our adventures and blessings with a child whom we can love and adore.

Meeting you would be an absolute pleasure for us, if that is what you would desire. We are open to whatever form of communication that makes you most comfortable. Our hope is that you would be willing to maintain a relationship/communication even after the baby is born. We care about you and the plans you have for the future. If you choose us as parents, we want to send you pictures and updates about the child as he/she grows. And as you feel more comfortable, we would also consider a more open relationship with you as well. We respect whatever decision you make in those regards.

We are praying for you as you prepare and plan for the coming days/months. We know that this is a confusing and uncertain season in your life. Please know that we care and are here if you so choose.

Grace and Peace,

John & Megon
