From Us to You

Dear Expectant Mother/Parents,

As you read this letter, we cannot begin to know the thoughts and feelings surrounding you at this intersection of your life, as this journey is not an easy one. But we do know your decisions will be made carefully with the best life in mind for your baby.

We met when we were both 22 years old, through a mutual friend, started dating immediately. We learned that we grew up less than a mile from each other in the same town, but never crossed paths as we attended different schools our entire lives. We married in 2019 and our marriage is filled with love, mutual respect, and endless encouragement for each other. We openly communicate with each other on everything from silly daily tasks to life’s biggest decisions.

We have been together for almost 10 years and have always known adoption would be the path we would take to grow our family, as Juliana cannot carry a baby safely to term. We believe that children will be a blessing for our marriage, and our goal is the same as yours, to give your child all the love, affection, encouragement, and support that he or she would need throughout his or her lifetime.

Your child would be surrounded by love from not only us, but 4 grandparents, 1 great-grandmother, aunts, uncles, and scores of cousins. Our 2 Chihuahua-mix dogs, Titus and Smokie, would also just love to have someone to run around and play with them. We frequently get together with family and friends for holidays, events, and just to socialize over dinner. We cannot wait to include a baby in our circle of love, keep old traditions, and start new ones, as we give your child the best life possible. We are Jewish and Catholic and intend to expose and teach your child both faiths and traditions, adding more reason for our families to celebrate.

We look forward to watching your child grow up, teaching them life’s most important lessons, taking them on vacations, exploring life with them, and making sure they are happy and cared for physically, mentally, and emotionally. Your child will immediately become the most important figure in our lives and would enjoy unconditional support, love, and safety. We would move heaven and earth to protect him or her from life’s dangers.

We will give your child every opportunity to thrive in life and, as a nurse, Juliana is specially trained on the physical and emotional development of infants and children. She is not only a caregiver by profession, but it is also in her nature. Scott has so much patience and will be a great, hands-on father and role model for your child. With his huge personality and sense of humor, your child will always know endless laughter.

Juliana’s mother was adopted at birth. Her experience with adoption was happy and healthy because her adoptive parents began telling her at a young age that her birth mother loved her very much, so much so, that she chose adoption for her. We will be sure to always let your child know that they were adopted, and that you made the most loving decision possible. We are open to sharing information with you and your child will be able to meet you, if agreeable to you when you are ready for that.

We have wanted a child to share our life with for so long and have not been able to have one ourselves, and that makes the gift of life even more precious to us.

Thank you,
Scott and Juliana

Why We are Choosing to Adopt

We are choosing to adopt because natural family planning is not an option for us. We want to expand our family and share our love and traditions with a child of our own, that we can raise from birth. We have explored other family planning methods such as IVF or surrogacy, but to us, adoption is best method for us as we get to have a child to love and care for from a mom who knows that the child will be loved. Adoption also gives a birth mother an avenue to have her baby and be connected to him or her as they grow.

About Juliana, by Scott

Juliana is the most thoughtful and caring person I have ever met. She wears her heart and her emotions on her sleeve and she loves love. Her heart is huge is constantly putting others before herself. By working in nursing, she gets to share her caring and patient side of her with every patient that is fortunate enough to have her care for them. Juliana is also extremely creative and crafty. One of her favorite things to do is to create crafts, whether they be paper crafts like elaborate cards, making holiday wreaths, or creating a new project on her Cricut, she loves to put her heart and soul into hand made gifts for others. Juliana is also extremely maternal. She cares for our little dogs as if they were her own birthed children. She is great with children as loves babysitting, playing with, reading to, and caring for our toddler aged nephew.

About Scott, by Juliana

Scott is a very loving, kind, personable and funny person. He is also exceptionally patient and understanding. From the beginning of our relationship, he knew that that natural childbearing would not be an option and has been incredibly supportive and excited to explore adoption.  He works in law enforcement investigating crimes against children and cybercrimes. When Scott is not working, he is usually found playing with our two dogs, watching sports or playing video games. Scott is an avid Miami Dolphins fan. He especially enjoys going to games during the season. Scott loves technology and computers and can always be found either playing a game or enhancing the technology around the house. Scott is a far better cook than I am and is always researching new recipes to cook together.

Our Home

We currently live in a single story, 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom, 1st floor condo in a gated community. We do not have our own pool, but we do have a community pool that’s always full with children. Additionally, we have a community playground that we love to take our young nephew to. We are actively searching for a permanent, single-family home to meet the demands of our hopefully growing family. Our home is always decorated for the appropriate seasons and holidays thanks to Juliana and we like to display photos of ourselves, our families, and our dogs throughout. We have two dogs; Titus is a laid back, playful dog who likes to bury under blankets, sleep, and chase his tail. Smokie is a more energetic puppy who loves to play, eat whatever he can, and go on long walks.

Our Sweet Pups

We have always had dogs in our lives, even as children. We currently have 2 dogs; Titus, a Chihuahua – Miniature Pincher mix and Smokie, a Chihuahua – Pomeranian mix. These little dogs are our children for now and we love them more than anything and would do anything for them. It is amazing how much personality these little creatures have in them. Titus is happy just cuddling underneath a warm blanket while Smokie loves to play fetch and chase anything he can find. Both dogs love to follow our 2-year-old nephew around when he has food because they know that some of it will end up being snacks for them.

Our Families

We have a large family and friend group surrounding us who we see frequently. We have many friends with young children and a large group of cousins on Juliana’s side of the family. We love to spending time with our families during holidays and special occasions. We love getting together regularly with friends while attending birthday parties, Halloween parties, holiday parties, and “Friendsgiving” dinners, and even half-birthday parties.

Our Lifestyle

We have an active lifestyle of going on vacations. Our favorite vacation places are the west coast of Florida, New Orleans, Louisiana, and New York, where both of our extended family still lives. Plus, we love traveling to new places and exploring new areas together.  We enjoy visiting friends and family, and going out locally. We enjoy doing outdoor activities such a paddle boarding, kayaking, and nature walks. Additionally, most weekday nights we can both be found in the kitchen cooking our favorite foods. We prefer a homecooked meal over eating in a restaurant.  We both enjoy spending time at home together during the week catching up on favorite television shows or working on home crafts together.

Family Traditions

We love celebrating birthdays by planning a small vacation or a big dinner with friends. We have many traditions together, having come from two different cultural back grounds and religions. What we do both share is our tradition of getting together with family and friends for any celebration. Scott is Jewish and for the religious High Holy Days we attend temple and get together with family. Juliana is Catholic and Italian, so on Sundays, someone in the family cooks a big early dinner and family comes together to eat. We also love to celebrate the Fourth of July. We travel to New York and Juliana’s cousins throw a huge party with live music, food, games, and fireworks. It is a party we look forward to every year. Christmas and Hanukkah usually fall close together in the month of December, so we make a tradition of decorating the house for both holidays. Lighting the Menorah, opening gifts during Chanukah, going to Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve, and opening presents Christmas morning. It is our hope that we can share our family traditions with your child and pass along the great memories we both gained growing up.

What Adoption Means to Us

What it means to us to be able to adopt a child is almost too hard to put into words. Juliana has yearned to be a mother since she was a teenager and wants nothing more than to be able to selflessly devote herself to child to love with all her might. Scott wants to be able to raise a child, make a positive impact on their life, and love him or her endlessly. Knowing that adoption is the only way we can ever accomplish these dreams and goals, being granted the gift of adoption would fill the hole in each of our hearts created by not being able to naturally have a child of our own. Adopting is how we continue on to the next phase of our life as husband and wife, and hopefully as mother and father.

What We will Tell your Child about You

As our future child’s birth mother, you would have given us the greatest gift a human could ever give another, the gift of life. We would impart onto your child how kind, giving, caring, and loving you are and how you want nothing but the best life for them. We would be sure that your child knowns early and often that they were adopted because of how much you loved him or her and let them know that you always loved and will forever love them. It is important that we share as much positivity as we can with our child about you.

How We Met

We met through mutual friends at a local restaurant. Scott was with his friends at one restaurant and Juliana was celebrating her friends’ new job at a different one. Our mutual friends decided to meet up together. Scott was the most outgoing of the group, keeping up conversation and making jokes.  It was then that we realized how easy it was to just talk to each other and how much we had in common. Although, when Juliana got up to go to the bathroom, she saw her friend and Scott with their phones out together talking closely. However, Scott was making sure that Juliana was single and expressing his interest in her. It appeared that Scott liked her friend much more, but later Juliana received a text from Scott explaining he in fact liked her not her friend.

What Attracted Us to Each other

Initially Juliana was attracted to Scott’s infectious smile and laugh. Scott is kind, loving, thoughtful, smart and patient. He is very chivalrous. Juliana was attracted to how he always made sure he opened the car door for her, brought her flowers for no reason, and his top priority was to make her laugh. He is a hard worker with good values. Scott was immediately attracted to Juliana’s physical beauty and the pride she took in her appearance. Beyond that, Scott found it incredibly easy to talk to her and she was quick to answer his sarcastic comments with those of her own. Juliana is also extremely caring, nurturing and creative and wears her emotions on her sleeve. When she loves and cares, she loves and cares deeply with her whole heart and being.

Our Hobbies

When we are together, we love attending rock concerts, going to the beach, playing games, spending time with our families, and snuggling up together with our dogs enjoying a movie or binge-watching a new TV show. Additionally, we love traveling and exploring new places and sleepy little towns together. Scott’s hobbies include attending sporting events, computers and technology, craft beer, hunting, video games, and getting together with friends. Juliana is beyond creative and is an expert paper crafter, wreath designer and maker, and interior decorator. She also loves reading, finding new crafts to create, and working out.

Our Careers

Scott grew up with law enforcement in his blood and discovered early on in life that was what he wanted to dedicate his career to. He currently investigates internet crimes and crimes against children because children can be voiceless and defenseless and need someone to help them when they don’t know that they may need help. Juliana too grew up with her career as a nurse in her blood and has been a nurturer since she was born.

Our Promise to You

Our promise to you is that the child you gift us with will be loved endlessly and unconditionally by us and our families. We want to give your child anything and everything he or she could ever need or want. We also promise that your child will always know that they were adopted and that you chose adoption for them because of how much you love him or her and that you wanted the best possible life for them. We will provide you with regular photos, videos, and updates as they grow and begin to get older. We always want your child to know how special they are and how many people care and love them, from both their birth mom or parents and their adopted parents.
