Chris and Carolyn's Letter

Dear Birthmother,

We can only imagine the tough decision you have to make and the concern you have for placing your child. We want you to know that you can fully trust us with your child’s future. We won’t give your child everything, but will give your child our everything. Your child will be provided with a loving and kind home, and a place of comfort and happiness where he or she can grow, learn, and thrive. You child will never go a day without feeling loved by us and our families, as well as our many friends he or she will be surrounded by.

Thank you for taking the time to read our letter, and considering us as adoptive parents. Due to infertility issues we have not been able to have biological children of our own, but we believe the Lord has guided us to be adoptive parents instead. We know in our hearts, and without a doubt, we will love our adopted child just as if it had been born unto us.

We both grew up in the same Texas Hill Country town, and have known each other for 34 years. Our lives went in different paths for many years but we always remained close friends. As we know, the Lord has plans for us all and we both ended up back in our hometown years later. The rest is history and we were married in 2011. We don’t plan on leaving our hometown where our roots run deep. We have separate jobs, but we both work with landowner’s in conservation and restoration of their land and resources. One could say we help them take care of the beautiful land that God created.

We enjoy the smaller things in life like driving around our family’s ranchland with the windows down watching the cows, goats and deer. We are often attending our local sports activities as well as going to college sports games. We love a day spent together playing golf, and can’t wait to teach our child to play the game. We also love the river! We spend a lot of time with our family and friends kayaking or just sitting in the river cooling off. Your child will always be surrounded by friends, family, and fun!

We promise you we will raise your child to love the Lord, and to live his or her life as a child of God. We promise we will do our best to teach by example and to provide all the resources he or she needs to learn about the Lord and His teachings. We can’t tell you how excited we are to watch him or her grow up to be a loving, caring Christian. We know we aren’t perfect, but through God’s grace we know he will help lead and guide us on our journey of parenthood.

If you would like to learn more about us, we would love that also and look forward to learning about you as well. Regardless of who you choose to adopt your child, we wish you nothing but the best. Please know how much admiration and respect we have for the love you are showing your child. God bless you.

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all ways acknowledge HIM, and HE shall lead thy path. – Proverbs 3:5
