Todd & Sarah
are hopeful adoptive parents from Washington waiting to adopt a baby.
If you are pregnant and considering placing your child for adoption, please read the following Dear Birthmother Letter.
Dear Expectant Parents
We canít imagine the difficulty you must be facing in considering giving your baby the gift of adoption. We commend you for allowing life for your baby. Selecting the family in whom you will trust your childís future is a tremendous responsibility. We know that you are considering this choice because the circumstances in your life are such that you feel it is in the best interest of your child to place him/her for adoption. Most importantly we know that you love your baby a great deal and it is your love thatís led you to consider adoption.
A little bit about ourselves
My husband (Todd) and I (Sarah) have been happily married for four and a half years and have known each other most of our adult life. We hoped to start a family right away but after trying every fertility procedure available we have had no success at all. We are very thankful for the opportunity to adopt and we hope you will consider us as prospective parents for your child. Todd and I both have jobs and are financially stable and ready to support a family. I will be able to move to full time motherhood when our child is placed so that I can be the primary person raising him/her and making sure they are cared for, loved and feel close to me. Todd is looking forward to building forts or playhouses and other fun activities with our children. Growing up in larger families has given Todd and I both experience with children. I had a younger sister and brother who were both special needs children and learning to care for them has taught me compassion and patience as well as the fundamentals of knowing what it takes to truly care for a childís needs.
Todd and I both grew up in Christian homes and we have a wide circle of friends and family with children from 0-teens. We know that your child will be surrounded by children and we will have lots of help from parents who have been there and done that. I am very active in making our home a warm and welcoming place as well as gardening. Todd and I both enjoy having bird and squirrel feeders around our yard and taking walks in parks and places that are still in their natural state. We love doing everything together and we are very excited to be given this opportunity to have a family together.
We chose independent adoption because of the many options available to you as the birth mother and us as the prospective parents. We feel that this way of adopting allows both of us to have full control over the social planning and legal transfer for the baby from you to the family of your choice. It also allows for us to consider any preference you might have during this process.
We want to thank you for reading our letter. You and your baby will be in our prayers and we know whatever choice you make will be the best choice for your child. If there is anything else you would like to know about us please donít hesitate to contact our adoption social worker, Fran Thoreen at (800) 331-8620.
Or you can call our attorney, Mark Demaray (425) 771-6453.

With love and hope,
Todd & Sarah
