Jon & Mandy

As we sit here writing this letter our hearts are filled with so much excitement and emotion that God has chosen both us and you to go on this adoption journey together.  Health issues, along with our passion for children, led us to this adoption journey.  God has directed all of us to this path for a reason.  He will lead us and guide us and never leave us.  God has chosen you to carry a precious child.  It is a gift from God.  We know that it is a very difficult decision you are making.  Please know that we admire your decision, whether it is to parent or to make an adoption plan.  We pray for peace and comfort for you through this journey.  We want to give our future children everything that we had.  We want to raise them up in a loving and Godly home.  We first want to thank you for giving the gift of life.  We also want to thank you for taking a few minutes to see a small part of our lives.  We thank you for being a part of this journey with us.
