Dear Birthmother,

Thank you for taking the time to read this letter. I am humbled to be in a position to care for a child throughout their life. I hope you feel supported in your decision, and I thank you for helping me to achieve my dream of being a “forever mother.”

I began expanding my family when I became licensed as a foster parent two years and a half ago. I have cared for a spirited, joyful, active little girl for the past two years. She has taught me how to be a mother and given me confidence that I am ready to take on the role of being a parent permanently. While I may return to being a foster parent one day, I am ready to commit to building a family of my own. I know that I am ready to be there for a child as she grows, stumbles, gets back up, and tries again.
