Building Our Family Through Adoption

Dear Birth Parent,

Thank you for taking the time to read this letter, we know this decision is not any easy one to make. We thank God that you have chosen life for your child. Children are a wonderful blessing and we would be humbled and incredibly grateful if you chose us to be your adoptive family. We will give you a little introduction on how we came to this point in our lives. Jerry is a craftsman and that’s how he met Elizabeth, he was working as a blacksmith at a festival and that was 23 years ago. Since then we have had 4 children. Three are biological and one is adopted but they are all loved and accepted. The ages range 21-3 and we are hoping to add to those numbers. We go on regular summer vacations to the mountains and occasionally to the beach. We would love to add another wonderful child to our great adventures. We also have a great big extended family that is loving and supportive. That includes grandparents, cousins, and aunts and uncles. we also, enjoy our rural lifestyle on our mini farm. We have goats, turkeys, chickens, and our loveable fur babies whom love people. We want to adopt because not only do we love children, but we also, feel it is a calling on our lives to help others, especially children.

Thank you for your time,

Jerry and Elizabeth

I’m am writing this letter to give my complete support Jerry and Elizabeth Bear as prospective adoptive parents. I have known them as friends and been their pastor for the last 15 years or longer. We have watched them both raise their children in the best loving, caring way possible. They are truly a hands on parents. They provide the education opportunities and atmosphere that would allow any child be all they can be in a well- rounded and balanced home. They both show so much patience and love and any child would be blessed to be a part of this family. They are willing to open their home and lives to more children. I know they have prayed and making this choice as an act of their caring love to help more children have a stable loving home. I know their whole family has such big hearts and would welcome the
opportunity to help. I know their whole household would be excited to welcome new brothers or sisters in their loving household. It’s my strong desire and confidence that I would love to see Jerry and Elizabeth expand their family through adoption.

Sincerely,

Jim
