Letter to Birth Mother

Hello,

We can’t imagine how scared you are or the difficulty of the decision you have in front of you. I'm sure you are putting a lot of pressure on yourself to make the right choices for you and your child.

Here are a few things about us that might help to calm your fears:

Todd and I have been together for 7 years, married for almost three. Todd is more laid-back and calm; I am more driven and tend to be doing something. We are a good balance for each other. Having a family has long been a dream for us. We've been told that I won't be able to carry a pregnancy to term. But we are not ready to give up on our dream of having a family. We know that we can provide a happy, stable, loving life to children.

We are both patient people, with large extended families, including nieces and nephews ranging in age from two to 19. Family is one of the highest priorities in our lives and most weekends we are spending time with parents or sisters and their kids. Nearly every weekend includes a family dinner or get together with grandparents, parents and the grandkids.

We are an active couple with two dogs. We enjoy outdoor activities like fishing and hiking, as well as indoor activities like video games and movies. Todd is a big sports fan – both watching and participating. He is the leader of multiple fantasy football leagues and can talk sports statistics with anyone. I love to be outside; I garden and we raise chickens for eggs. Recently, I went on an overnight backpacking adventure.

We understand that each situation is unique. It's possible you are worried about the relationship you will or won't have after the adoption with your child. We are open to discussions about what that future and what that relationship would look like to find something that would work for you, us and, primarily, the child.

Thank you for reading our letter and considering us as your child's adoptive family.

Cassie and Todd

 
Why Choose Us

Todd and Cassie after a 5k

What it means to be parents and what our strengths would be:
To us, parenting means providing love, support and protection to children, to teach them how to reach their potential and find fulfillment. We are naturally loving people who have a quick and easy rapport with kids. We have gone through several parenting classes, helping us to understand root causes behind kids' behavior and how to best help them hit developmental milestones. We would teach our kids to make good choices and the consequences of decisions. We know that not every life path is the same and would support our children finding their happiness, their way.

What I want you to know about my wife, Cassie:
"You would be hard pressed to find a person more caring and loving towards other people than my wife. Her endless commitment to having a family is unmatched. She has always had love for kids and loves to play. She loves to teach kids how to cook, grow things and play. She will never say no to a walk or a visit to a playground. She is ambitious and loves to travel. She is reliable, and can always be counted on to help. She is fun to be around, with a great sense of humor." - Todd

What I want you to know about my husband, Todd:
"What you should know about Todd is that he is one of the most laid-back, patient people I've ever met. When I'm having a moment of stress or anxiety he knows how and when to step in to assist. He's a solid, reliable partner that consistently supports me pursuing my dreams and goals. He has never held me back from anything that I've wanted to do. He can also be stubbornly determined, demonstrated by his choice to go back to school years after being out. He sticks with it, even when the times are tough. He is a fun person to be around with a surprising quick wit." - Cassie
