Our story is pretty detailed in our “Dear Expectant Parent” letter:
Dear Expecting Parents,
Thank you so much for taking the time to learn about our family and for considering us to raise your baby. We have a loving home and an amazing family that have been praying right along with us for a child. We hope with this book you will not only be able to see the bond that we share with our family and friends but the loving family that your baby would become a part of.
Excited doesnt even begin to describe the feelings we have on becoming parents . We both knew when we met that we wanted to have children, but we never really considered adoption. In the ten years we have been together we have suffered multiple miscarriages and and ectopic pregnancies. With all of this loss we just didnt think having a family was an option until we were introduced to Lifetime. While we had been working so hard to “have a baby” we finally realized that we simply wanted to be parents. While we can not image the difficult choices you may be facing, we can promise you that nothing will be more important in our lives than your baby.
Finally, words cannot express how thankful and appreciative we are for you to consider us. We understand that coming to this decision is not easy and we could not begin to fathom the emotion that comes with creating an adoption plan. Please know that you will be in our thoughts and prayers – we know that you only want what’s best for your baby. We promise to surround your baby with love and laughter and will make sure that they know every day what an amazing gift they are. It would be an honor if you choose us.
Much love and prayers,
Bertram & Leaeryn
