Subject: Letter to My Child
Dear Precious Child,
I just wanted to start this letter off by telling you I love you more than you will ever know and it’s because of this love I have for you that I surrendered you to “Safe Haven”.
I was a 19 year old college student when I had you. I had no job and my own family was struggling to keep me and my brother in school. Lord knows I wanted to keep you but I also wanted to give you the world and with the situation I was in, I wouldn’t have been able to do that. I knew that by surrendering you; you would go to a loving family who would be able to care for you properly and give you everything that I never would be able to. Also me and your father weren’t in a loving relationship and I did not want you to grow up in a family with no love and conflicting views.
You truly are the gift that keeps on giving. You were a gift to me because by having you; you taught me the most ultimate love is wanting the best for your child doing whatever it takes to do that and you also brought me into a closer relationship to God. You’re the gift that keeps on giving because I know that you are a blessing and will continue to be a blessing to the parents and family that love you now.
I have faith that you will go on to be whatever you want to be in life and be very successful in life.
There’s not a day that passes that I don’t think about how much I love you and I know that the family you have now loves you just as much as I do.
Your birth Mom
