you for reading about us and our loving, happy home. We are beyond excited to devote
love, support and guidance to the child who becomes our family, and we are awed
by your amazing strength, love and dedication in ensuring the right home for
your child. We hope this letter connects with you in some way, to tell you that
we are the ones. Then, we can find comfort in each other as we go through this
journey of bringing your baby into the world.
were both born and raised on the east coast, then followed our hearts to
California where we’ve turned the California dream into our reality. In 2006 we
met in the San Diego beach town where we both lived. Our connection was
immediate, as we shared the same love of the beach and ocean, of enjoying
outdoor activities year round, and of making the most of living in a place
where others vacation. We love California and it makes our day when we’re mistaken
for natives. We love neighborhood walks, beach picnics and bonfires, bike rides,
relaxing in our backyard—which we landscaped into a tropical getaway, plus so
much more (surfing, skateboarding, puzzles, yoga, running, cooking, crafts, do-it-yourself
house projects…). We enjoy exploring new places and can make an adventure out
of any outing. We drive south to Mexico a few times each year and we love to
camp in the many amazing parks in California.
2011 we got married on the beach in our hometown and shortly thereafter began
trying to conceive. After years of unsuccessful efforts, it became clear that
being pregnant was not a necessity, but having a baby in our world was. While
we have an incredibly strong, fun and loving marriage, we feel a hole where our
child should be. We long to have a child join us on our adventures. We long to
see the world through a child’s eyes. We long for the unconditional love and physical
affection that a child will give and we long to give that love and affection
back. We are both generous, caring, empathetic people who prioritize treating
others and our environment with respect and compassion, and we are excited to
guide a child through life and teach him/her to be a good person, help those in
need, and to be kind to everyone. We will encourage passions and interests,
support ongoing discovery of self, and provide the education and training best
designed to help him/her be who they want to be.
have an amazing support system of family and friends. Elizabeth’s parents have
been married for 50 years and she has three brothers, a wonderful sister-in-law
and 2 nephews and a niece who we adore. We see them and other extended family a
few times each year. Jim’s parents divorced when he was very young. He grew up
mostly with his mom, as an only child, with loving aunts and grandparents
doting on him, but also spent precious time with his father, step-mother and 2
step-sisters. We visit Jim’s family yearly as well. We also have an incredible group
of friends, both with and without children, who have become our local family.
It’s standard to have kids running around when we all get together and our
child will not only have a constant group of friends within our circle but
he/she will have a slew of adults looking after and loving him/her. Your child
will grow up with an abundance of love and support.
you again for learning about our life and for considering your child to be a
part of it. Should you choose us, we promise that we will deeply honor your
decision and will provide your child with a wonderful life. And it will be our
dream come true.
