From Us to You

“A mother’s love for her child is like no other love. To be able to put that feeling aside because you want the best for your child is the most unselfish thing I know.” – Mary, Birth Mother. It is an unbelievably selfless decision you’re considering, and please know that we will do everything to give your baby the best life possible. We’ve had to make a lot of really difficult decisions dealing with infertility, but we can’t even begin to imagine what you’re going through right now.

Despite our struggles with infertility, we’ve always planned on adopting with the hope that we could give a good life to a child in need. We both have always enjoyed extremely close relationships with our parents, and we very much want to share that deep bond with our own children. You can rest assured that your baby will always have the love and support of a caring family willing to do anything for them. We will raise your child in a loving home filled with laughter, trust, and guidance. We want them to be able to talk to us about anything and to grow up in a safe, supportive environment. We want them to have an active lifestyle filled with sports, music, culture, and travel. We love to travel internationally as well as domestically, so family vacations will be a regular occurrence.

We live in a beautiful home in a quiet suburb near the water. We have a large, fenced-in yard with a deck and patio, and we’ll often sit out on the deck after work and relax while we talk about our day. We are close to amazing beaches, parks, theaters, restaurants, and excellent schools. We live within walking distance to a 100-acre park with access to the beach, boat slips, and walking trails. In the summer they host food truck events, family outdoor movies, and 5K races. We also have one of the oldest and largest 4th of July parades in the country. We can’t wait to experience these events with your child. We are also located near several private schools, and we intend on giving your child the best education possible.

We currently have two fur babies: Otis (named after the Motown singer, Otis Redding), a drooly and lovable 4-year-old French Mastiff who was born on Christmas; and Gracie, an adorable and energetic kitten born last Christmas Eve. The two of them are best buds who love taking naps together and chasing each other around the house. They are both great with children and we cannot wait to have a baby to add to the family dynamic. We are both animal lovers and we will always have a dog and/or cat in the family.

We both have stable careers that offer flexible schedules and the ability to work from home when we need to, and we also have an incredible support system of family and friends to help us ensure that your baby will be well taken care of at all times. This will also be the first grandchild for Angela’s parents and they are just as excited as we are! We look forward to teaching your child about all the things we love and nurturing their own talents and interests along the way.

We could go on forever talking about our goals, life, and animals, but we really would like to say thank you and hopefully talk to you about everything in more detail if you choose us. Again, thank you for reading our letter and looking at our profile, it means a lot. Thank you for considering adoption and considering us! We finally have hope that we can start a family soon! Thank you for providing us with this incredible opportunity, for which we will be forever grateful.

With Love and Compassion,
Brian & Angela

About Us

We first met in 2011, at Angela’s cousin’s wedding to Brian’s best friend. At the time, Brian was living in Florida, and Angela was living 1,000 miles away in Rhode Island. Despite the distance that separated us, there was an instant connection, and we affectionately joke that Brian followed Angela around like a lost little puppy. It wasn’t until about a year later that they began dating long distance, which proved to be a challenge, and we actually broke up, but as fate would have it, in 2015 we rekindled our relationship, and this time we made it work. Brian relocated to Rhode Island and we bought a house together on Valentine’s Day, 2016. A little more than a year later, we were married at a beautiful mansion on the water, and have been working to start a family of our own ever since. In our spare time we enjoy traveling, and spending time with friends and family whenever we can. We also love just spending time together at home with our fur babies, cooking dinner, watching movies, or relaxing on our deck when the weather is nice, while Brian serenades Angela on the guitar.

About Brian

Brian is an amazing person and husband; I truly don’t know what I would do without him. Before Brian, I always seemed to date the wrong guy. I was always dating the guy who treated me like I wasn’t good enough, and eventually, I started to believe it. Brian swept me off my feet and provided me with unconditional love and support in our relationship. I can trust Brian and I know I can talk to him about anything. He will always love and support me no matter what. I know I drive him crazy with all my home projects and the fact that I’m impatient, but I also know they are the details that make him love me more. We balance each other well and we work together to be better people. Brian has changed my life for the better. He has shown me how a man is supposed to treat a woman and I know he will be an unbelievable father. Brian is patient, kind, smart, funny, and talented. He truly is an amazing guy and I am lucky to call him my husband.

About Angela

Before I met Angela, I spent most of my adult life convinced I would never get married or have children, mostly because I could never picture myself trusting someone enough to make that commitment. We’ve all heard the cliche phrase: “When you meet the right person, you just know.” I never really bought into that, but after only a few short months of dating Angela, I finally understood, and now I can’t imagine my life without her. I knew almost immediately that she was the person I wanted to spend the rest of my life with, and it wasn’t long before I decided to move across the country, buy a house, start a new job in a new city, and basically start a whole new life… something I never would’ve thought I was capable of in a million years. It previously would have terrified me, but with her, I never had the slightest hesitation about it. I know I can always be myself with her, I can always rely on her to be there for me when I need it, and I can always trust her with anything. She’s the most honest, compassionate, and caring person I’ve ever known, and there is no doubt in my mind that she will be an incredible mother who will love your baby with all her heart and protect him or her with fierce vigilance.

Our Lifestyle

Among the many things we love to do, we really enjoy traveling, relaxing at home, watching movies, having cookouts with friends and family, and working on home improvement projects. We also like taking our dog for walks around our neighborhood, dining out at local restaurants, and finding fun outdoor activities to do together both near home and while traveling. During our last trip to California we hiked up to the Hollywood sign, and went on a whale watching tour out of Santa Barbara where we got an up close look at a 100 foot blue whale as well as lots of humpback whales and bottlenose dolphins. When we’re just relaxing at home alone we like to sit out on our deck if the weather is nice. Angela loves to cook, and Brian loves to play guitar or do some woodworking.

Our Traditions

We celebrate most holidays in the typical way. Backyard barbecues and fireworks on the 4th of July, big home cooked family dinners on Thanksgiving, etc. We both love the Christmas season, and every year we decorate the house with lights, pick out the biggest and best Christmas tree we can find, and decorate the tree together while we watch National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. We try to take a big vacation every year around our anniversary. We’ve been to Italy, Greece, and New York City, and next on the list are London and Paris. We also have regular movie nights, game nights, and big Saturday morning breakfasts we cook together.

Our Family

Angela’s immediate family all lives in Rhode Island and will be instrumental in helping to raise our children. Angela’s mother will help watch your child while we’re working. She is very active with her church; she sings in the choir and teaches Sunday school. Angela’s father is retired. They have been married for almost 50 years. Angela’s older brother also lives in Rhode Island.

Brian’s father is a general contractor and lives in Texas. He visits us at least once a year. Brian’s mother and step-father live in New Mexico. Brian’s older brother and his wife also live in New Mexico with their two children. Brian’s mother looks forward to visiting her grandbaby here in Rhode Island

Between the two of us, we have more than two dozen aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews spread across the country. For holidays and family get-togethers, we all take turns visiting each other, whether traveling to New Mexico, New Jersey, Virginia, California, Texas, Florida, Arizona, or hosting family at our home. We also have a close group of friends here to provide support for us. We see our friends on a weekly basis and often go out to dinner together or have game night at each others’ homes. Your baby will be loved by all and will have an amazing support system both here and through extended family around the country.

Our Pets

We’re both animal lovers who grew up with many different family pets, and today we have two fur babies. Otis, our 4-year-old 130 pound Dogue de Bordeaux (a.k.a. French Mastiff), is an adorable, loving, gentle giant who loves playing fetch and going for long walks and car rides. He snores like a wood chipper and drools like a leaky fire hydrant, but we still think he’s the best dog in the world. And Gracie, our 1-year-old cat, is a sweet and cuddly little furball who also loves to play fetch with her little mouse toys. Otis and Gracie are best buds, who love to curl up and take naps together.

Our Home and Neighborhood

We live in the suburbs in Rhode Island. Our house is a fully renovated, colonial-style home, and is within walking distance to the water. Our neighborhood was founded almost 400 years ago and has a lot of history, which is one reason we love the area. It’s also an extremely quiet and safe neighborhood. We are less than a mile from two golf courses, a marina, and a state park that offers a scenic walking path, boat dock, beach, food truck events, 5K races, and family movie night. Our beautiful home has 3 spacious bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. Angela loves decorating and coming up with new projects to improve the house, and Brian (being the son of a general contractor) is pretty handy. For our most recent project, we added a reclaimed wood ceiling in our den, complete with crown moldings, interior shutters, and floating bookshelves. Our house sits on a half-acre of land with a large, fenced-in backyard. When we have children Brian looks forward to building a playhouse and swing set for the kids; he is great at woodworking and building. We can’t wait to see our kids playing in the yard, and we hope to eventually get a pool as well.

How We Spend a Three Day Weekend

We love taking mini vacations. We often go to New York City to catch a play on Broadway, see a standup comedy show, eat at the famous Katz’s Deli, or just do some shopping and sightseeing. In the winter we like to go to Vermont, New Hampshire, or Maine with our friends. We get an Airbnb and spend the weekend cooking, snowboarding, playing games, and having lots of laughs. When we’re not traveling, we love to spend time at home. If we have a long weekend at home we love to relax on the couch, order take out, and just spend time together.

What Adoption Means to Us

We’ve struggled with infertility for a while now, but that’s not the only reason we’re choosing to adopt. We know there are a lot of reasons why a birth mother might consider adoption, and we both have so much love to give, and such a strong desire to nurture our future children and see them grow to become good people, and we’re lucky enough to be able to provide a safe, loving, supportive environment for children. It would mean the world to us to be able to give a birth mother the peace of mind of knowing their baby is in good hands and will always be taken care of.

What We Will Share with Your Child

We will share with your child that you are an incredibly strong woman who made the most courageous and difficult decision anyone could ever make. We’ll tell them how much you loved them, and that you chose us to be their parents because you wanted to be sure they would have the best life possible. Of course, we’ll also respect your wishes if you have any feelings on what you would or would not want us to share with your child.

What We Will Teach Our Child

We hope to teach our children to be honest, respectful, and compassionate, and to always treat others the way they want to be treated. We want to instill in them a sense of self-confidence, and also teach them the importance of having integrity, and taking pride in who they are as a person. We look forward to seeing them develop their own natural strengths, encouraging them to follow their dreams, and also being surprised by all the things they will undoubtedly teach us along the way.

How Our Child Will Enrich Our Life

We know that raising children will be difficult and will, at times, test our patience and push us to our limits, but we know it will also bring us more joy, laughter, inspiration, and adventure than we could ever imagine. We can’t wait to experience all the little moments in our child’s life that help mold them into who they will be.
