Dear Tom and Heather,
It's Monday and I'll be meeting you tomorrow on November 16, 1999 (hopefully on the day of the baby's birth.) I've heard about the name you've chosen for this baby boy and it means the "chosen one." How very appropriate! This morning I'm trying to get all of my crying done, so I can be strong for Krissy.
I'm your soon-to-be son's 63-year old great grandmother. God blessed our home with four beautiful and wonderful daughters, whom we love very much. I've loved being a mother and we introduced our children to Christ and church at a very early age.
Let me share that we've loved this baby for a long time. But, we wanted him to be raised in a stable Christian home. Some may say we're giving him away. But that's not true. I know that our decision is an ultimate gift of love. I can become very sad when I realize I won't have any "grandmotherly" influences in his life. But, I hope that one day we'll be able to be a part of his life. In the meantime, we'll pray for all of you. We'll be thinking about him and asking God to protect him. What really made an impression on us about you was that you thanked Krissy for choosing life. (There was no other choice for us.) You also said that God didn't make mistakes. We're thankful that your profile included that you're "unashamedly Christian."
God bless you and we're praying for you.
(Tom & Heather have been blessed with 2 children through Christian Adoption!)
