Dear Expectant Family,
First, we just wanted to wish you the very best as you make this very important decision in your life, with whatever you chose. It will be what it right for you and your child. We hope you will find the peace and assurance you need as you make these difficult choices for you and your baby. We also want to thank you for taking the time to get to know our little family.
Adoption has changed our lives so much and we are so happy that there are wonderful people out there who are willing to explore adoption. We have so much love and respect for those expectant mothers and their birth families. Here is just a little fun fact about both our families, they have both been touched tremendously through the power of adoption. Tyler and his two siblings are adopted from different families, Heather’s sister is also adopted, and our little Nathan is adopted. We feel we will be able to help this child understand and know the love you had for them and why you made this hard decision.
You are probably thinking to yourself, they already have three kids, why would they do adoption now? Well, even before we were married, we knew that adoption would someday come into play and was something we knew we both wanted to do. We fill that our family is not complete, and our final piece is waiting for us. When we talked about having kids, we knew in our hearts that we were to have 4 kids, and adoption was going to be a part of building our family.
In August of 2013, after a year and a half of fertility meds we were lucky enough to add Kyle to our family. He is such a joy and full of life. Not long after that, in November of 2013 we found out we were pregnant again. In August of 2014 We added Samantha (Sami) to our family. She is a spitfire and full of life. 2018 hit and we knew out family was not complete… after not being able to have a successful pregnancy, we knew adoption was where we needed to head. In January of 2019 Nathan was placed into our family. Which leads us to know, after more miscarriages we knew our final piece was going to come to us through adoption again and we could not be happier!
Lastly, we want you to know that we cannot even comprehend the emotions and challenges that you are facing, but we want you to know that we are there for you and we love you. We want you to know that although we have never met, we pray for you daily, and are here for you during this time. We have so much respect for all you are trying to do in your life and for considering adoption as a parenting choice for your baby. Our Promise: We promise to love her every day! She will always know about you; we will not forget you. We will provide her with a safe life filled with love. We will provide her with as many opportunities as we possibly can. Our home will be filled with love and laughter. We will always be there for her.
With all our love,
Tyler, Heather, Kyle, Sami, and Nate
