Adoption Successes

Sal and Wendy

Some of the things we believe in are a good education and taking advantage of opportunities that life brings. We plan to select the best school for our child and we both will be actively involved in school events and extra-curricular activities. We have high standards when it comes to school and hope our child will one day go to college and find a gratifying career. 

Brian and Toni

We grew up in neighboring housing tracks, attended the same grade school and high school, but never knew each other. As fate would have it, we met 18 years after high school, while country western dancing. We married and talked of starting a family. After several tests, two operations, two attempts at invitro-fertilization, and an emotional rollercoaster ride, our worst fears were realized. However, our main goal is to have a family and we are immensely grateful for the opportunity to adopt a child. Both our families, who have been aware of our struggle to become parents, are also excited and completely supportive of our decision to adopt.

John and Sandi

 

We are John and Sandi, we live in Minnesota and we’ve been married for three blissful years.  We knew God had a different family plan for us when we were unable to conceive on our own.  We enthusiastically pursued adoption and in January of 2004 we were blessed, through the Adoption Network, by an incredible angel, Jennifer. She is our son’s birth mom and she gave us the honor of being Carson’s parents. No words can describe her selflessness or our gratitude for her amazing gift of a child. The love and affection we feel will only be magnified with the addition of another child. Carson has brought so much joy to so many and we delight in seeing the world through his eyes. We look forward to expanding our family with anticipation and hope.  Your child will be a blessing and a gift.

Mark and Michelle

We have worked hard to build a life together. We live in a beautiful home that is situated in a suburb setting that offers swimming, golfing, tennis and many other family activities. Our home is the meeting place for almost all of our family gatherings. It was designed to entertain and we fill it with lots of family, friends and fun every chance we get. We are both lucky to have our parents nearby and we enjoy spending time with them. As a couple we share a love for movies, traveling, and playing with our cat, Kaylee. We are in hopes of starting a family to love with all our hearts.

Greg and Christy

We pray that your life and ours will be filled with love and admiration for one another during this journey. This is truly the greatest gift that anyone could ever give to us. We believe God has a plan for everything in life. Our thoughts and prayers are with you in your decision to do what is best for you and your baby. Our hearts are open and ready to receive your child so we may provide him or her with love and happiness forever.

Elad and Rachel

It is difficult to know how to begin to write a letter to the person who can make our biggest dream come true. We thought about how best to express our gratitude to you, for taking the time to read our letter and considering us as your baby’s adoptive parents. The one word that we kept writing down was ‘hope’. We hope that you will like us. We hope that you will choose us. Most of all, we hope that you will be able to do so while finding peace with what is most likely the most difficult decision you have ever had to make. To help you make this decision we want to tell you about us.

Kenneth and Tammy

This letter is a window into our lives and the values that we cherish. Before we open this window, we want to commend you for your courageous and unselfish decision to place your baby with a devoted and loving family. We know that this is a difficult time for you and hope that we can ease your concerns regarding your baby’s future.

Stefan and Marian
Weekends and evenings are spent with friends and family. Both sets of grandparents live in the same city so we always get together for holidays and often for barbecues or just to hang out, talk and relax. We love outdoor activities. Playing tennis and golf, bike riding, going for walks along the beach and camping/hiking in the mountains are a few of the activities we like most. Indoors, we read together, play games, and spend time teaching our African Grey parrot new words and phrases. Stefan enjoys running and going to car races, and Marian loves to garden and express her creative talents through scrapbooking. We also like to travel and look forward to the day when we can take both our children on weekend getaways and planned vacations.
Mark and Rhonda

If we had to pick one word to describe our life, it would be “JOYFUL.”  We are a playful, happy couple and our house is always filled with laughter: we both love humor and we constantly make each other laugh. We are soulmates: fate brought us together as we met each other walking our dogs along the beach in California. We love each other beyond words and have a strong, stable marriage. We are surrounded by our caring, supportive extended families who are thrilled that we are adopting. In fact, this child will be the FIRST grandchild on Mark’s side of the family! Your child will be showered with love and affection from dozens of family members and friends, not to mention ourselves!

Mike and Stephanie

We are both very fortunate to have come from happy Christian homes with loving parents; and because of them, we feel that we have a very strong foundation for becoming loving parents ourselves. Our families live nearby and will be an important part of our child’s life. We also have many siblings, cousins and friends with small children who will make wonderful playmates for our child. 

Darren and Sophie

We believe that adoption is the most special gift birthparents can give to a couple who long to have a baby to shower with love. We know how wonderful the adoption process can be since Darren's Uncle and Aunt, who live in the United States, had the privilege of adopting a child. 

Roger and Junko

Our names are Roger and Junko and we met 20 years ago as lawyer and client. Our relationship developed and 6 years later, in 1991, we got married.  For the past 15 years we have been busy professionally. Roger is the senior partner of an intellectual property/antitrust law firm in San Francisco. He also teaches at the University of San Francisco Law School. Junko has her own company, which designs building sound walls for the state freeway system.

Ken and Janet

We would like you to see into our lives, so that your choice will be a bit easier. Ken and I have been married for 3 1/2 years. We planned to have children right away but due to my endometriosis, we have not been able to have a child biologically. We have a strong love for God and that is what our marriage is built on. We have a happy life together but an important piece is missing, a child. We look forward to building a family through adoption and will welcome this precious child as our own with great joy.

Zeraa and Anita

We both believe that the most important part about raising a child is to give the child lots of love, security and stability. We will focus on building the child’s self-esteem and sense of responsibility. While we make more than enough money to afford children, we don’t think material things are what make a child happy. Nonetheless, we will make sure that your child has all the opportunities to pursue the life and career that he/she is interested in. We will not decide ahead of time what the child will be like or will do for work when he/she grows up.

Scott and Teresa

We celebrated our fifth wedding anniversary in December. While we have been trying to have a baby for more than two years now, we recognize this time as a blessing, for each year has brought with it a newfound joy in one another. We are best friends, and hopeful that we can soon share our love with a child. We will offer our child a warm, accepting, and joyful home filled with laughter.

Jim and Stephanie

We want you to know how much we really appreciate you. I am adopted. My parents made sure that I knew and appreciated my birthmother’s love for me, as well as the sacrifice she made so I could have a better life – one that she could not give me at the time. Each day that I wake up and get to spend time with friends and family, I remember her and thank her for letting me have my life. Because of her ultimate love, I will get to enjoy having a son or daughter. I too will make sure my child knows how much he or she was loved. We promise to love, protect and cherish every single moment we are allowed to have.

Charlie and Sue

We are Susan and Charles, and we have been happily married for 14 years! It is our heartfelt wish to provide a life filled with love, laughter, support, and opportunity for a very special baby. We want to thank you for taking the time to learn more about us. While we know this is only a snapshot of our lives, we'd love to talk to you further so you can get to know us on a more personal level. Please also know that as we wait for a child to join our family, you are in our thoughts and prayers to find that special couple that will fulfill all your hopes and dreams.

Kip and Suzanne

We were both raised in extremely close, loving families, and we heard, “I love you” everyday. Kip’s family lives in Wisconsin, and we go there for a wonderful family Christmas every year. Because we are of different faiths, we get to celebrate all holidays! Suzanne’s sister and mother live nearby, and we see them often. We believe in eating dinner together as a family, so we can always ask, “How was your day?” We want to raise confident children who care about the world around them. Both of us have spent many years volunteering in community organizations, and we will always continue to do so. Additionally, your child will be able to participate in things like summer camp, college of choice, music, art, and family vacations – at the beach and mountains!

 

Paolo and Nicki

Paolo and I have been married for almost 4 years - we were introduced by a mutual friend and knew immediately it was fate; after all, we share the same birthday (October 21st)! We were married just 5 months after our first date and are happier than we ever could have imagined. We are very easy-going, tolerant and enjoy spending time together and making each other laugh. Together, we have a lot to offer a child.

Tony and Jocelyn
Thank you for taking a moment to read our letter. We cannot imagine the emotions you must be experiencing at this time, and we admire your wisdom, courage and strength of spirit to make this choice for your baby. We would like to tell you a little about ourselves to help make you a little more comfortable with your decision should you choose to bless us with this most precious gift.
Jeff and Linda
We are the best of friends. We love outdoor activities boating, fishing, riding ATV’s and laying at the beach. We are fortunate to own lake property to enjoy these activities in the summer time. We also vacation in the fall and spring to enjoy the beaches in the Caribbean. We own a large 5 bedroom colonial home in a very nice suburb. We have a large fenced in back yard where we enjoy parties and barbeques with friends and family.
Deral and Dawn
We both grew up in Orange County, California, near the beach.  Deral spent his childhood days surfing, skateboarding, skiing and dirt bike riding – and, he STILL loves to do these things!  Dawn grew up living at the beach, camping, roller-skating and spending time the family.  We’re a very active couple and we enjoy sharing all the wonderful experiences that life has to offer in each other’s company.
Rob and Dana
Let us begin by thanking you. Thank you for the hope you give to us and for the life we will share. Thank you for being the unselfish individual you are and for making the best decision for you and your baby. Right now you are facing a most difficult decision. We hope we can help to ease the pain by sharing with you who we are and the amount of endless love we have to give this baby. In our eyes, you are an angel sent from heaven.
