Dear Future Child,
It feels like forever that we've longed to become parents. We've dreamt of you, we've prayed for you, we can't imagine our lives without you. We have dreams of the future, that we're so excited to share with you. From the bumps & scrapes of learning to walk, to the happy tears of your first words, or even your first date. We are so excited to become parents, that we absolutely want to give you the world. We hope to show you wrong from right, to always seek out life's greatest adventures, to love unconditionally, but most importantly to just be you! We know the future is bright and we've never been more excited to share it with you!
Your future Mom & Dad
During our waiting time, we've leaned on one another, our family and our friends. We continue to pray that our day is coming, when we are finally able to become parents through adoption. In all honesty, it's hard to say that this waiting period has been easy. Especially when all we want is to just become parents and share our love and grow our family. We've tried filling this waiting period with fun vacations, work, new projects and lately I have turned to podcasts. I recently came upon a podcast called the Adoption Wait by Laci Richter. She has spoke with some amazing adoptive parents and given me new ideas and hope. I recently listened to a podcast where she featured writer Allison Olson. Allison had a beautiful story from both an adoptee and an adoptive parent perspective. She even wrote a children's book, which is what sparked me to write my letter above. Her book inspired me so much, I instantly purchased it on Amazon and it will be here tomorrow for me to add to the nursery. I can't wait to share it with our future child(ren). I know it's going to be an important aspect for them growing up that not only shows the hopeful adoptive parents perspective but also the birthmother's perspective. Here's hoping we are able to share this book in the very near future!
