Jamin and Rachel's Letter

Dear Birth Mother,

Thank you for choosing life for your baby. We pray God blesses you for making such a loving and difficult decision. We respect and admire you for your courageous choice. You and your baby are in our prayers as you both make this journey. We pray God gives you peace and comforts you in His love as you continue to make decisions for you and your baby. We hope this letter will answer some questions you may have about us.

We are Jamin and Rachel. We met in college at the Baptist Student Ministry. We have been married since July of 2007. We were blessed with our son by the gift of adoption. He was born in May of 2014. We have two dogs. Our female dog, Harlie, loves to snuggle with us on the couch. Our male dog, Charlie, loves to fetch the tennis ball.

Jamin grew up in Madisonville, Texas, with his parents and younger sister. He graduated from Texas A&M University-Commerce with a degree in speech communication. He is the football offensive coordinator and the head power lifting coach at Willis High School. Jamin is out-going, funny, personable, and level-headed. Rachel grew up in Burleson, Texas, with her parents and two younger brothers. She graduated from Texas A&M University-Commerce with a degree in interdisciplinary studies. She is a school counselor at an elementary school in Willis. Rachel is quiet, friendly, and compassionate.

Since we are both educators, the holidays and summer vacation allows us to spend quality time together and with our extended families. Both of our families are supportive and excited about our decision to adopt again.

We strive to put God first in our relationships, and with His help, we plan to raise our children in a Christ-centered home. Our goal as parents is to show unconditional love to our children; the same love that was given to us through God and our own families.

Thank you for reading our letter. We recognize this is a difficult time for you, and we will continue to pray for you and your baby as you make your decision.

God bless you,
Jamin and Rachel
