FC: Jonathan & Ashley

1: Hello, Despite the fact we are strangers, we have been praying for you for many months and greatly admire you for considering an adoption plan for your baby. We cannot begin to understand how difficult your decision must be. It certainly is one made with sacrificial love. Therefore, we are very grateful for you and this child and we hope to get the chance to meet you. Why do we want to adopt you ask? We have been married for over 13 years after first meeting in Middle School and have always considered adoption to be a part of our future. After struggling with infertility for a while, we knew God was leading us through this exciting adoption journey. After all, we wanted to provide a loving home and raise children who would be cared for, safe, and learn about God's grace. We view ourselves as being adopted into God's family and eagerly await the opportunity to extend ours. We have many supportive couples and families praying for all of us in this journey together. Furthermore, we have a very close and supportive family. Our goal is not to be perfect, but be the best parents as possible. We desire to have open communication, share feelings, and teach our children how to love God, love others, and be selfless to people around them. | As you read over the rest of this book, you will get a glimpse into our lives; our hobbies; our family; and most importantly, our hearts. We hope you will afford us the opportunity and privilege to allow your child into our family. Sincerely, Jonathan and Ashley
