Ben and Emily's Letter

Dear Expecting Mother,

On the bench where we got engaged, there is an inscription that reads, "We love because it is life's greatest adventure". As we’ve traveled through life together, we’ve definitely seen the highs and lows of that adventure, but because our love for each other is grounded in God’s perfect love for us, we have joy each day and are excited to see where he takes us.

We’ve found that God has given us a yearning for another love – a child. Long before we were married, we each hoped to one day adopt. We believe that God was preparing our hearts even then to have a joy and hope even in our inability to have biological children. We can't express how excited we are to see our dream of a family come to life, and we thank God for leading us to Christian Homes & to you.

Ben is an Accountant who grew up in Colorado and has an avid love of hiking, camping, and cheering on the Denver Broncos. We’ve already got a Broncos onesie ready for our new little fan. He is looking forward to being a father and helping our child find their own passions in life.

Emily enjoys DIY projects, crafts, and being involved in church activities. She is a graphic designer and will be transitioning to part-time work from home to be with our child. She looks forward to investing her creativity in making life in our home a special place for our child.

As a couple we’re mostly homebodies who enjoy relaxing together with a night of laughter, Netflix or some board games with family or friends. After 6 years of growing together in our marriage, we can't wait to start our family and share our life with a child. We have 11 nieces and nephews who we adore (3 of whom are also adopted), but our arms ache to hold and love a baby that is our own.

We know that the love you have for your baby is immeasurably deep and we think of you often and pray for you. The road you have ahead of you is one we can’t begin to imagine, but we pray that God will guide and comfort you in it. Our greatest hope for our child is for them to know our love, your love and God’s love. Thank you for considering us; it’s hard to convey such personal emotions in this short letter, but we hope that our path might cross with yours and we can walk forward together on this journey.

In Christ,
Ben & Emily
