Elise Minter replied to Erica Moyer's discussion any advice on how to write a birthmother letter?
"I completely agree with these ladies a far as labeling your letter. We did ours as Dear Expectant Parent(s). Also another thing to remember is don't give them a blow by blow. People tend to lose interest the longer it is. Definately include key…"

Elise Minter replied to rebecca's discussion dare to try again?
"I completely agree with Annie. God placed that child with you for a reason. Maybe you should look at it from a different view. Perhaps Gods plan for you was just interim care until her new parents were ready. Listen to what the Lord is telling you.…"

My husband and I are in the final stages of our home study and are starting on our Dear Birth Mother letter. To the birthmothers, is there anything that you can think of that you saw in profiles that hurt, or made you put that particular profile in the discard pile? We wrote from the heart but I don't want to step on toes and appear "too anxious". Thanks for any advise you can shine on the matter.EliseSee More

Share a little about your adoption story
We have known for several years that it would be virtually impossible for us to have a family naturally. It wasnt until this past May that we heard the Lord telling us which way to go. Since starting the adoption process, God talks to me all the time, guiding me on what to do next, when to slow down, and when to speed up. We pray for our future birth mother every day. We also pray for all birth mothers choosing an adoption plan, choosing life!
