Meet Elyse


To A Special Woman,

Thank you for taking the time to get to know me a little through this book and considering me to be the adoptive parent of your beautiful baby. Your courage and strength is truly inspirational.

I know this is an important decision for you, and that you want to make the right choice for your baby. I promise you, that your baby will be loved and be a special addition to my family. I know that I could not complete this journey into motherhood without you.

You are a special courageous woman helping me complete my dream by choosing me to raise your child.

You are our child’s first chapter into life; and I will be the last chapter raising this beautiful baby whose life you have chosen me to share.
