Adoptive Family Abraham and Megan
This is the moment. The moment we hope you find comfort and ease with us. We aren't going to lie, this letter is a lot of pressure! How do we adequately express our gratitude for you? Our respect for your decision to create an adoption plan for your child? It is hard for us to imagine being as brave as you are being in this moment. It was important for us to lead with you because throughout this entire process you are what we have been thinking about.

We guess we will start by introducing ourselves and telling you a little bit more about us... Hi, we are Abraham and Megan! We have been together for six years and married for almost four. People often say that we are a great match, a wonderful compliment to the other. We don't just love each other, we like each other too. And to be honest, we are good at being married. We are a true team in every sense of the word. We both try to give as much as we get. We are real friends and our marriage is the number one priority in our lives. We have loving and supportive families who live close by. Both of our parents have been married for 40+ years and have been great examples of what it means to have a happy marriage and to raise great kids. Our biggest wish in life is to create a close-knit family of our own and to raise self-sufficient, kind-hearted, successful kids. We want to give them everything our parents gave to us.

Our journey to become parents has not been an easy one. It has been hard fought and at times soul-crushing. Through each step we had to step back and remind ourselves why we were working so hard. We were working to fulfill our greatest purpose, to be parents. This was something we could not give up on and as we have embarked on this adoption journey it has given us a renewed sense of hope.

We recognize that this child is loved by two families, first by you, who wants what is best for them, and then by us. They will grow up always knowing that. We will lovingly share their adoption story with them early and often, helping them to understand more as they grow. Whatever level of openness and contact that you want to have with your child, we will support. We look forward to documenting their life and sharing those pictures and stories with you. We want you to always know that our child is being raised with all the love, kindness and opportunity we can provide. We also realize that at this point, you may not know how involved you want to be yet and we are okay with wading those waters together.

We acknowledge that this is a difficult time for you and we want to offer some solace and support. We want you to know we will love this child with every fiber of our being. Your child will be raised in a home that smells like bacon on the weekends, has a Christmas tree in the living room every holiday season, contains rooms that are filled with laughter and a mom and dad who are there to kiss their scraped knees and cheer on their accomplishments. We will always honor and respect you for the sacrifices you are making for them and they will always know how much they are loved by you.

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us. We look forward to learning more about you! We hope that you are being cared for throughout this journey and that you were able to connect and find some sense of hope with us, in this moment.

With deep respect and gratitude,

Abraham and Megan
