Hoping to Adopt: Kate and Landon

Dear Birth Mom,

I’ve thought about this letter for what feels like forever. This whole thing: adoption, a baby, you, are on my mind often and words can’t really express how deep and intricate my feelings are, but I’m going to try. I can’t imagine being where you are, this choice you’re making is heavy and real. I hope and pray that you’ll find calm and comfort, I know that even when you do, this will still be really hard.Kate and Landon

I have wanted to be a mother my whole life, really. The heartache I’ve felt losing pregnancies and trying again and again have a tight grip on my heart. But, the hope and surety I’ve felt as we’ve pursed adoption has helped heal my heart. I know there is a special spirit that is meant to be in our home. I know that we’re going to meet that spirit through adoption and that is a wonderful, beautiful, miraculous thing! And that will all happen because of you.

I hope you found me, us, for a specific reason. I know a lot of people will read this but I hope you find it. You, a beautiful, selfless person who knows we are the right ones and we can figure all of this out together. I hope you find us soon.

Sending all my love,


“whatever our souls are made of, yours and mine are the same.”

    Ever since I was young, I recognized qualities in Kate that set her apart. Now that I’m older, I have recongized those qualities as characteristics of a Mother. Kate and Landon deserve someone to pass their overwhelming amounts of love on to. They truly were meant to be parents!
