Dear Birth Mother,

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about our family. We have a 6 year old daughter named Savannah. Shortly after Savannah was born we decided that she needed a sibling. After years of struggling with infertility, we feel that God has led us to pursue adoption. We have so much love to offer another child. We feel that the gift of adoption is the ultimate act of profound love and selflessness. We live in a beautiful small town. Our families all live close by. We vacation with our families, spend holidays with our families, and include them in our daily lives. The importance of family became even clearer to us after we had Savannah. She is loved and surrounded by grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and many friends. We feel that our greatest responsibility as parents is to ensure that Savannah, and any other children that we are fortunate to have, knows God and knows that they are loved by us. Both faith and family are the foundation of our lives. We have plenty of room in our hearts to love another child. All children are gifts, and you would be giving us the greatest gift imaginable by adding to our family. We promise that your baby will be loved, protected, celebrated and will be surrounded by family, friends and a community who will always celebrate them and love them unconditionally. We hope that you would consider us as adoptive parents for your baby. We promise that your child would be loved and given every opportunity for a wonderful life.

Forever Grateful,

Matthew & Katie
