Dear birth parents,

We know you're facing a very difficult and emotional decision.  As parents of four children ourselves, we want the very best for them.  I am Rick Bowman and my wife is Sarah Bowman.  We can support and recommend Amanda and Cameron as adoptive parents with all our heart and confidence.  We've known them for over 10 years and during that time they've become dear friends to both of us.  Amanda and Cameron love our two youngest children like their own.  Our children have become emotionally and spiritually attached to them as well.  Amanda and Cameron are our chosen godparents for both of our youngest children.  They actively participate in our children's spiritual development.  Also, should Sarah and I be unable to raise our children due to incapacity or death, we want Amanda and Cameron to become their guardians and continue what we started.

There is not enough time and space in this letter to tell you all the reasons that Amanda and Cameron will be wonderful parents.  Here are a few of the most important.  They are very active in their church as leaders and youth teachers.  We've seen how the youth in their church both respect them and have fun with them at the same time.  Also, the elders in their church frequently seek their advice.  Both of them have stable, long-term employment with respected positions.  They can provide a financially secure future for a child with a strong moral environment while having fun at the same time.

Most of all, Amanda and Cameron are the most loving and caring people that we've ever met.  Any child in their care will be one of the most blessed in the world.


Rick & Sarah
