Dear Birth Mother,
Thank you so much for taking the time to read our letter. Your decision to choose an adoption plan for your baby is a tremendously difficult and selfless decision, and we have the utmost respect and admiration for you. We pray that you have peace and comfort in your quest to find the perfect couple to cherish and parent your baby.
We are Forrest and Kayla and we started dating in high school and were married the summer after Kayla graduated. We’ve been married 10 years and counting. We tried to grow our family for about 5 years with no luck. After several failed fertility treatments, we decided to pursue adoption. We were blessed with our amazing son, Flynn, on our anniversary in 2018. There is not a day that goes by that we don’t thank God profusely for both Flynn and his birth mother. Flynn is VERY ready to be a big brother, and we feel we have a lot of joy and love to give another child. We can’t wait to see how perfectly God writes this chapter in our lives, and how He knots our relationship together.
Kayla has spent many years working in medical offices as a secretary, but last August started a new job as an aide at the local elementary school. This gives her the opportunity to be home every weekend, evening, and have holidays and summers off. Flynn will start preschool this fall at the same school. Our new addition would have the opportunity to stay with family and a friend from church who runs a small daycare in her home. Kayla is most happy outside with her hands in the dirt, or with her nose in a book. She enjoys hiking and singing (although she is not overly talented in the singing area).
Forrest works in the family woodworking business and is home every night and weekend. His job is flexible, so he has time off for holidays and vacations. Forrest is a very talented singer and loves fishing, hunting, hiking, and camping.
Our 3-bedroom log cabin sits in the middle of family land and is not far from Kayla’s parents and Memaw. There are lots of woods and hills to hike, a giant yard to play in, and a creek perfect for swimming and picnics. We can’t wait to share all this, along with family pool days, movie nights, and adventures with another little one. Kayla has a very large family, most of whom live close. Forrest’s family is small, so we often have celebrations and get togethers that include both families. Your baby would have many loving cousins, great grandparents, great aunts and uncles, a Nana B. and Papa, Mamaw and Papaw, Aunt LeeLee, Uncle T.T., Aunt Whittey, and Uncle Ty. All of our family, friends, and church family are so excited about our adoption and are praying for us, as well as, you and your baby!
Our town is a smaller rural town, but has a very nice park and a good local school. We are about 30 minutes away from a town with an amazing library, marvelous pool, and movie theater. We also have an amazing local ice cream shop! We look forward to raising a child surrounded by all this love, joy, and laughter; raising them to know God’s love for them, as well as, our love and yours.
