Dear birthmother,

We are very excited to write this letter to you. Thank you for taking the time to view our profile and get to know us a little bit.

The gift of adoption is the ultimate act of profound love and courage. We know that by making this decision you only want the best for your child and we respect your desire to find the right family to love, cherish, and nurture your baby. We understand what a loving sacrifice it is to create an adoption plan for your child and we would be honored to be a part of your plan. Should you choose us to be the adoptive parents of your child, we are committed to keeping you updated on your child's growth and progress, as you feel comfortable.

We are excited to share our values and the lessons we have learned. Some of those values include the importance of a good education, working hard for what you have, learning to appreciate the simple things in life and treating others with dignity and respect. Our greatest hope is to raise a child in a happy, loving home.

After struggling with infertility, we decided to pursue adoption. Sharing our love as parents is more important. We hope to introduce your child to our passions for traveling, music and the outdoors. Gene is the musician, playing bass and singing. Leigh-Anne is the photographer who researches the places to vacation and captures all the events. She has hundreds of pictures on her computer from our trips and family get-togethers.

We have pictures in frames all over the house. We enjoy bike riding and have mountain bikes when the mood strikes us. We also live close to a National Forest and enjoy hiking and being outside. Family is everything to us. Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas and birthdays are spent making food, fun, laughter and sharing. Grannie, Grandma, Aunts, Uncles and cousins are waiting to welcome your child into our family. We cannot wait to carve a Halloween pumpkin, decorate a Christmas tree or make Easter cookies. Our families look forward to embracing your child and welcoming him or her as our newest member.

Your child will always know the love that you have for him or her, and you will always have a special place in our family. Thank you again for reading our letter, we look forward to meeting you.

Sincerely,

Gene and Leigh-Anne
