Dear Birth Mother,
We write this letter with a spirit of gratitude; we’re grateful to have the chance to connect with you and are deeply thankful for the privilege of raising a child through adoption. Thank you, from our hearts, for reading this letter and considering us!
We’ve hoped for a child for the past six years and waiting to adopt for the past year and, while it can be painfully hard to be patient in this pro-cess, we are trusting that the time we’ve been waiting is well worth it as it has led us to you.
We are Tyler and Rachel and it’s a pleasure to meet you and have the opportunity to tell you a bit about ourselves. We are both from Southern California and currently live in a small beach town, nearby to both of our extended families, to whom we are very close…they are just as enthusi-astic about adoption as we are. We’ve been happily married for ten years and have been best friends for longer than that; we love the fact that we’ve known each other since high school!
At this point, we have spent more of our lives together than apart, and it’s this unity and sincere love for each other that makes us excited and truly ready to welcome a baby into our home. We have so much love to give and pray daily that God will bless us with a young life to nurture and raise.
Our jobs have enabled us to create and maintain a safe, warm and sta-ble home while giving us the chance to travel together as much as our schedules allow. Some of our favorite places to visit include New York City, Miami, London, Paris, Bermuda and Big Sur and the thought of sharing these adventures with a little one makes our hearts burst with excitement. Tyler works as a Vice President in the energy industry and Rachel is a professor at local college. Although we both love what we get to do each day, we strongly believe that family comes first and are thankful that our work hours are flexible and “baby ready.”
In our free time, Tyler enjoys restoring his classic car, cooking, surfing and staying fit and Rachel loves writing, singing and sharing her makeup skills with friends and family. We are also crazy about our dog, who just may have the best life ever. We could be described as “typical beach people” due to our relaxed, easygoing personalities and love for a casu-al, down-to-earth lifestyle that values genuine relationships. More than anything, we simply have fun being together and would be honored to be able to share that positivity, optimism and care through adoption.
We both have a love of life, a heart for people and a sincere trust that everything happens for a reason and timing is everything. We cannot wait to meet the baby that God has chosen for us through adoption…in His perfect plan and timing.
We know your choice is an incredibly hard, brave and important one…thank you, again, for considering us.
With gratitude and love from our hearts,
Tyler and Rachel
