Letter to Jack


There are some things your father and I would like you to know. We have loved you from the time that we received your referral. When we first saw your shining eyes in your picture we knew you were are son. We knew that God chose you to be part of our family. In so many ways God brought you to us.

We are about three weeks away from meeting you in person. So far the journey to you has been nothing short of amazing. The people we have met and the things that have happened have been trully inspiring. You have already touched us and inspired us to be better people.
We can never express the gratitude that we have to God for allowing us to take this journey to you. We cannot wait to meet you...our son.

We are so blessed that we will be able to watch you learn and grow. We're so excited to be able to share all your joys. We also know that we will be the ones to share your rough times and your sorrows. These times will allow all of us to grow and gain perspective. Your father and I want you to know that you can share the bad times with us too. They are not a burden to us, they allow us to be closer to you. We want you to know that it's okay to be sad about your birth parents, and it's okay to wonder about them. It's also okay to wonder about China and the people there. It doesn't matter if you are angry, sad, or mad we will always love you and be there for you. Please know how blessed we feel that you are our son. We love you so much.

Mommy and Daddy
