Dear Birth Mother,
We know this is where we are supposed to tell you how “perfect” we are, but we decided to go the genuine route in hopes you will get a real picture of who we are and what your child’s life would be like if you chose us as adoptive parents.
We are Curtis and Maggie and it is our hearts desire to grow our family through adoption. This is not our second choice or last effort to become parents. We desire to be adoptive parents because this is our first choice! Before we were married we had discussed our desire to adopt. For us, adopting is not to fill a void, but to add an even greater blessing and joy to our family. It has been God’s calling for us, and in our hearts we know now is the time.
So what is there to know about us? We met on match.com, which is still funny to us. After talking once, we went on a date the very next night and saw each other every day (not an exaggeration) for over 5 years straight. And we still aren’t sick of each other! We spend many Saturdays watching college football and eating hot wings until our mouths are on fire. Maggie loves to bake without following any recipes. Her candied bacon has been the best experiment so far because the only thing better than bacon is candied bacon! Curtis is quite the handyman. From computers/electronics to home improvement, we have yet to find a household item or toy he couldn’t fix. We know this isn’t really about us, but what life you desire for your child. We know you desire your child to be loved, cared for, protected, and kept safe in a happy and fun household. We know these are the desires of your heart because we are the parents of 3 children at home, and 1 in heaven, and we have the same hopes and desires too. We personally know what it means to cherish and love children, because that is our daily mission. Careers and success are important, but nothing is more important than our love for God, our family, and children.
We are thankful to be blessed financially so we can give our children the life we desire for them. Our home is in a safe neighborhood with a great Elementary school right across the street. Your child would have their own room that is already set up for them. We look forward to future family vacations to Disney World and Curtis’s family ranch in Tennessee where we will have many summer vacations riding horses and playing with animals. Being able to give our children a happy childhood like our own excites us. The most important thing to us is our relationship with Jesus. We teach our children the Bible and attend church regularly as a family. We even serve as Bible study leaders for high school students at our church. We instill the values that Jesus teaches to love one another, and believe that this has already started to shape our children into kind and considerate individuals.
Thank you for reading about our family and considering us to be adoptive parents for your child. You are a loving mother for putting your child’s needs above your own and for loving them so much that you would do what’s best for them, even when it brings you hardship. From the bottom of our heart we want to thank you for choosing life for your baby. We can only imagine how overwhelming this is for you. We would love to continue this conversation with you in hopes to bring you peace and assurance. Regardless, know we are praying for you and your child daily. We genuinely care about you both.
Curtis and Maggie
