A Letter of Love

Dear Birth Mom,
     I want to start out by letting you know that from the moment Chris and I made the decision to be adoptive parents you & your baby have been in my thoughts and prayers daily.
     I have had the desire to be a mom for as long as I can remember. I've thought about what it's going to be like to hold my baby for the first time and I have prayed, cried, hoped, and even begged God to let me experience that feeling but for reasons that I may never fully understand that day has not come, yet. You allowing us to adopt your baby is the amazing answer to years of prayers and you need to know that I will never take the decision you are making for granted. When your baby is placed in my arms for the first time and it becomes my baby, all the years of tears and asking why will all fade away and all the waiting will have been worth it.
     As much as I want to be a mother that is not our only reason for choosing to adopt. Adoption has always been on my heart. It is a desire to be there for a birth mom and dad to let them know that no matter the reasons that led them to adoption they are loved and have been prayed for and their baby will be loved so much more than they could possibly imagine. I believe that by choosing to give your baby up for adoption you are demonstrating one of the biggest acts of selflessness and love.
     My heart and prayer is that you will know God's direction for your life and that He will grant you the peace you need as you make this life changing decision.

Dallas' Mom
