sample profile letter *Updated*

Anyone have a sample "Dear Birthmother" letter for a profile that I could see?

Or any tips on what to include or not include?

It's for  a profile that birth mothers would look at to choose an adoptive family. 

We have 3 young bio children and are using a private agency for a domestic adoption. 


UPDATE:
Thanks for everyone's input. I found the websites with profiles very helpful in writing ours, and our agency gave me a few samples to look at too. I even had a graphic design friend help me do the layout with some pictures to help tell our story.
I hope it comes across to the mothers as respectful, and loving.

Our agency has a mom looking at the profiles next week, so I'm prayerful about it, but just wanting the best for that baby.

 Department of Youth and Families.  Children who have no homes either born in the system or their parents have lost their parental rights to them.

Hi Kara


When you are writing your BM letter, it's important to never come across as judgemental, always be respectful and acknowledge this incredibly selfless decision they are making.  Share a deeper glimpse into your life and share how much you are looking forward to becoming a mom again.  Because you are already a mom to 3 bio kids, the bm will want to know that you will love this child as much as your own.  If you are looking for an open adoption, mention this and talk about photos and progress reports and anything else that you would be open to sharing with the bm but if you aren't planning to do this then don't make promises you can't keep.

If you are looking for moe tips on what to include on your profile please ask away.
