Dear Expectant Mother,
Before we say anything about ourselves, we want you to know that we have been praying for you. We know this may be a difficult season of life for you and that you have likely experienced suffering that we cannot imagine. We pray that the God of peace will be near to you, and that you will feel confidence as you are making decisions for you and your baby.
Whether you choose to parent out of love or to make an adoption plan out of love, we want to say thank you. Thank you for the thought you are putting into your child’s future. Thank you for the love you have for your precious baby. We hope that you feel honored and supported and loved in whichever decision you make.
Our names are Ben and Jayna. We have been married since 2013 and have built an amazing life together. Ben is a doctor, and Jayna is a stay‐at‐home mom. The Lord has built our family in such special ways already. We have a 19‐year‐old son who joined our family as an international student five years ago, and we have a 2-year‐old daughter who joined our family through adoption. We love them both more than we could have ever imagined, and we are so excited for our family to be growing once again!
Our family is light‐hearted, fun, and full of love! We love being with each other and enjoy doing things like cooking, being outside, playing games, watching movies, or simply spending quality time with our friends and extended families. Our kids have so many cousins that it’s difficult to keep track, which provides a lot of built in friends and role models. They also have amazing grandparents and aunts and uncles that love on them endlessly – family is such a gift, and we hope we never take that for granted!
We know that God will provide the perfect child planned out for our family just as we know He will help direct your path ahead. Thank you for reading our letter and for considering us! May you feel valued and loved in the days to come!
All our love,
Ben and Jayna
