We are Brad and Gina from California. We are honored that you are
taking the time to get to know us. We understand that this may be an uncertain
time for you and it is with warm, heartfelt emotion, that we say how courageous
you are to consider this journey.
We have been married for many
wonderful years. We swear it seems like we just met yesterday! It amazes
us that every year we feel our love grow even stronger. We feel blessed
and truly fortunate to have found one another and adopt our sons Lucas and
Mateo. Being parents is absolutely amazing and every moment a gift.
Our family is our number one priority and we are excited to expand our family.
Our youngest, Mateo is the most anxious to have and take care of his little
We are enthusiastic to welcome a
girl to bring her uniqueness to balance the harmony of our loving family.
Gina was very involved with her niece through all her stages and looks forward
to nourishing a strong independent girl of her own, while Brad is excited to
spoil his little princess. Both are excited to find out what will be her
interests and be involved in every way they have been with the boys
interests. Both boys are ready to be protective big brothers and teach
her the ropes of school, neighborhood, and introduce her to her many family
members, including other young cousins and family members located nearby.
We both work for family-oriented companies, with
highly flexible schedules. Gina limits her time at her job so it can
be spent with our sons, enjoying the outdoors or volunteering at Lucas and
Mateo’s school. Brad works from home full-time and is able to leave early
to spend time with family. Both of them have volunteered for assistant coaches
for the boys sports. They want the kids to be active and love to be
active with them. The family eats and shares their day at the dinner
table, cleans up together, and reads stories before bed. Family
gatherings are frequent and special. Grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and
close friends all live within a short distance from our house and regularly pop
in for a visit. Our family and friends cannot wait to shower their
attention on our new addition!
We have a spacious, warm, inviting 5-bedroom home full of bright
light and a large grassy backyard with several trees. There are
several kids in the neighborhood. People travel far to attend the safe
and impressive halloween displays and treats in our neighborhood! Education
is very important to us; both boys are attending private school near our home
where individuality, creativity, and arts are emphasized. The teachers
are outstanding, nourishing, and have become a key part of their lives.
They have even invited their teachers over for dinner! Nearby is a hiking
trail which has a kid-friendly farm and every year they have new baby goats,
pigs, and sheep!
We look forward to simple everyday gifts with our children, such
as teaching them the love for nature, camping, enjoying the outdoors, reading
and eating together every night. We would be humbled to be part of your child’s
loving development and wonderful future. Thank you for taking the time to read
our story and for considering us for this lifetime connection.
