Let's start at the beginning.

Dear Junebug,

I hope that someday, when you can read these letters, they will help you understand how having you for a daughter is more wonderful than anything daddy and I had ever imagined for ourselves. And, I don't just mean how delightful and enchanting you are...but even the way we came to find you; and how we became foster parents. I have really grown to love our story.

When your dad and I were going through all the things that finally led us to you, I so longed to hear stories of other women who felt anything even close to what I did. I hope sharing these letters might help others out there who are on a similar path and need to hear they are not alone. I am forever grateful for the people who shared their stories with me and daddy when we needed to hear them.

There is so much that I have to tell you, and I can't wait to get to the part where you came to us, but I think our story actually begins when daddy and I were hoping for a baby a very, very long time ago; back when I assumed I would do what almost everyone around me was doing, and grow a baby in my tummy...


  1. I'm already tearing up over here. So glad to read your story, Jenny.

  2. Oh Jenny....this really touches my heart...totally made me cry.

  3. She will treasure this someday, Jenny. I agree with the above: I'd like more, please!

  4. Thanks for the encouragement everyone! You guys are wonderful!
