BC: ...Happily ever after! | We wish you all the best in your decision!
FC: Meet Sam and Linda
1: Dear Expectant Parent First we are grateful that your unconditional love for your unborn child has led you to consider an adoption plan for him or her. We can only imagine that it is a tough decision, and one made out of the deepest kind of love. Thank you for taking time to get to know us. | About Sam: Sam is an avid outdoorsman. He especially loves the water, and so do I! He loves fishing, surfing, and canoeing most of all, but is good at a surprising variety of outdoor sports. We both love to spend time outside and seeing new and different places, and we want to share that love with children. Sam comes from a solid family background, with a large extended family. He appreciates the value of family relationships, and has a strong work ethic. He is a kind and patient man, serious when he needs to be, but he’s a lot of fun, he’s great with kids, and will make an awesome Dad. | About Linda: Linda is a fantastic woman, and I feel blessed every day to have her in my life. She is loving, generous, and fiercely loyal to her family and friends. She is tough, and loves to do the same outdoor things I do, but at the same time she is sweet and nurturing and has been a constant source of support for me. I love her creative knack for taking ordinary things and making them beautiful. She is really great with kids, and I know without a doubt she will be a great mother! She has lived many places around the world, which has given her an appreciation for different cultures and all kinds of people. She has a love for reading, history, and travel, and talks about how much she looks forward to sharing those things with kids someday.
2: We live in a medium-sized town, in a quiet neighborhood with great neighbors, and the church we attend has an excellent school that we plan to use for the children’s education. Our church congregation, neighborhood, and both of our families are quite diverse as well, so anyone who joins our family will grow up being exposed to a variety of cultures and different types of people. After being married several years, we wanted to start a family. Having not been able to have children biologically, we realized that God had a different plan for us, and so we decided to become adoptive parents. We feel confident that we are meant to be parents and we have plenty of room in our home and our hearts to love a child, someday more than one. It would be the greatest gift imaginable to be able to add to our family. We pray that you will have peace in your decision, and trust that God will open the right door for you, whether it is ours or someone else’s, and we wish you all the best in the courageous decision you are making. God bless you! Sam and Linda
