We want to thank you for taking the time to get to know us through this book. We are writing to you with a bunch of emotions - excitement, compassion and even a little bit of fear. If you are reading this, we believe it means that our paths have been guided to cross one another for a reason. Maybe we will be lucky enough to have a connection with you so that we may have the chance to guide, love and serve your child throughout his or her life.
You must have so much on your mind. Adoption is an incredibly difficult decision. But here we are - we may have more in common than you would think.
Our parents struggled to raise us. Growing up, Dawanna faced a lot of tough challenges being raised by a single mom. Raymond's parents immigrated from Jamaica and worked to attain the American dream. Despite the past, we are now blessed to have all of the advantages one could want in life - successful careers, great friends, wonderful family, and strong faith in God. We can provide your child with an amazing life - the best schools, a beautiful home, travel around the world, and most importantly, unconditional love. What makes us unique though is that we can provide your child with the tools necessary to succeed in life - love, spirituality, hope, faith, wisdom, and perseverance.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking the time to read this note. We hope we can have the chance to get to know you soon.
With love, Dawanna and Raymond
