Introduction Dear Birthmother: As we take our boat across the harbor on a beautiful summer afternoon, one spot is always empty.  We look forward to our explorations of sand and sea, birds and shells, but we know that it is not complete.  Someone is always missing.  And when our niece flings her arms around our neck with, “I love you, Auntie Jaye!”  I love you, Uncle Eric!”...

Introduction To someone incredibly special to us, Most mornings, we wake up to sun streaming in our windows and we feel blessed to live in our cozy home with our yellow lab, Milo, who greets us with a yawn and a wagging tail.

Introduction Dear Birthmother, We are glad that you have seen our letter and hope that this might be the start of our relationship with you.   We have had other chance occurrences in our lives which have led to wonderful relationships – including our own.

Introduction Dear Expectant Parent(s), We are Lauren and Chris and immediately after meeting each other eight years ago, we knew we had found our soul mates in one another. Five years ago we got married and began our lives as husband and wife. We spent our first few years as a couple traveling and trying to have a child, only to learn that was not an option...

Introduction Dear Birthmother(s), The day we were married, Julie’s father walked her down the aisle, kissed her cheek, turned to Greg and said “good luck!”  We still laugh about it today and knew, at that moment, that not only were we joining two amazing families, but that it was the start of our wonderful, fun, amazing, adventure together. We are Greg and Julie. We met through match.com back in...
