Dear Expectant Mother

We are so happy you found our little space on the internet! We cannot even imagine what you must be going through right now, but I’m sure you might be feeling somewhat overwhelmed. The road ahead may seem difficult with a ton of decisions to make. And so many couples may be reaching out to you hoping to gain your attention and sharing all the reasons they would be the perfect parent(s) to your child. We can tell you that we do not know the pain you are going through, but as a couple who cannot bear children – we recognize your heartache and we are in awe of your strength and love for your child in considering adoption.

We believe that being a parent is the most important job in the world, and it’s a role we don’t take lightly. We have looked forward to having children since before we were married in 2008, and we have spent the past seven years preparing our home, lives, and hearts for children. We’ve had many heartaches and struggles over the years but, no matter what life has thrown at us, Ryan and I have remained strong in our love and support of one another. Something we promise your child will never be without – our love and support in all things they choose to do or be.

We also want you to know that you will always be an important part of your child’s story. Our journey to grow our family has been filled with prayer, support, and many signs along the way. So much so that it inspired me (Stephanie) to start writing the story for our future child to read one day. I want our child to know how very loved they are now, before they are even in our arms. I want them to know how many people have prayed for them and hoped for them. And I want our child to know the amazing amount of love that surrounds him/her… And that story starts with you and your selfless motherly love.

We are more than happy to answer any questions you might have and we would love to get to know you better too. Thank you for taking the time to read our little letter to you & please know that even if we aren’t the right fit for you, we are sending so much love and prayers your way.

Stephanie & Ryan
