If chosen as an adoptive family, we promise to welcome you into our family, as we desire to travel this adoption road together. We recognize that you have cared for and loved this child for nine months and that you will continue to love him/her. We promise that we will tell your story.
We will continue to talk about adoption openly and honestly in our home, setting aside our own potential discomfort for the benefit of the child we all love. We will embrace his/her story and help him/her to see how your biology and our biography can come together in one person. We will create an environment where truth and acceptance drive out doubt, shame, and assumptions. We promise to help this child develop a strong sense of family, cultural connection, and racial heritage.
Above all else, we vow that we will unconditionally love this child and do all that we can to enable him/her to grow and develop into a strong, secure, and loving adult.
