Dear Expecting Mother,
Thank you so much for allowing us the opportunity to introduce ourselves. We are Jared and Rana Davis. Words cannot express how honored and humbled we are that you are considering us for the adoption of your child. We are grateful that you love your unborn child so much that you are willing to consider an adoption plan for him/her. However you came to your decision, we believe it to be a very brave one. We imagine you have many emotions with this decision. We admire your love, selflessness, and courage for looking at adoption and for looking at us as potential parents to your child.
It has always been a dream of ours to become parents. We feel incredibly blessed, but the gift of a child is one thing we still long for. Although we cannot have children of our own, God revealed his plan for us – to share our love through adoption. We’ve seen how adoption can change people’s lives and we’re so excited to now be on the journey ourselves.
We met after college and have been wonderfully married for 10 years. We live on a quiet street in the suburbs north of Dallas near most of our family and friends. We enjoy spending time with them whether we are celebrating the holidays or just hanging out and playing games. Both of our families are important to us and have been very influential in our lives growing up. Jared’s parents live close by and most of Rana’s family lives within a two to three hour drive from our home.
We are fortunate to live in a safe community with friendly neighbors who take the time to chat when they see us. We’ve lived in the same home since we were married and enjoy working together on DIY projects around the house. As he/she grows up, we’ll encourage them to find their passion in life and to embrace their own hobbies and interests. If he/she is into sports, we have a nice backyard to play catch, or if they love to read, they’ll enjoy the quiet spaces in our home and neighborhood. There are two parks close by - just a short walk away. We can’t wait to start new traditions in our home as a family – just as we experienced growing up.
Rana works in the retail industry in training and human resources. She loves to decorate, sew and cook her famous family recipes. While growing up in Oklahoma, hard work and family time was instilled in her. Rana graduated from Oklahoma State with a business degree. She is outgoing, friendly, caring, devoted, and just fun to be around.
Jared grew up in North Texas and has a business degree from Abilene Christian and a finance degree from Texas Tech. Jared is a financial consultant in the healthcare industry. He is smart, thoughtful, kind, loving, and sincere. He loves sports, games, wood-working, anything outdoors, and our trips to the beach or mountains.
We both have been touched by adoption in our lives and know for sure that this is the path for us. We cannot promise a perfect or bump-free road, but what we can promise is that we will share our faith and be by their side with love and support through any obstacle they may encounter. We will love them unconditionally and we are committed to being the best parents we can be. He or she will always know that they are loved by God, as well as their birth and adoptive families. Thank you again for taking the time to read our letter - we are so grateful for your consideration. The gift we seek is possible because of you.
Jared and Rana
