Hi! Today we would like to tell you our story. We’d like that, for a few minutes, you get to know our universe, get to know who we are, and a little about our life.

One of our major dreams is to become parents and we hope that through adoption, our dream will come true.

We met almost 10 years ago, we have been married for 7. A great friend in common introduced us, he knew that the magic, the love and the connection between us was going to be instantaneous, and it was.

We were born in Argentina, and for almost 6 years we have lived in Miami, we speak English and Spanish. Both languages ​​are constantly embracing our lives.

We are blessed to be surrounded by great friends and family who visit us constantly.

Our house has the love of 3 Golden Retrievers, Merlin (5), Allegra (3) and Eros (2), they are good, affectionate and playful. Our house is big, they have their own room and garden area exclusively for them.

We are really happy with the decision of adopting a child. We believe it’s a great act of love and respect for life.

You will always be an especially important person in their life, because not only have you brought them into the world, but also have given them the possibility to live and have been extremely generous in granting us the possibility to be their family and to care for them. We will always talk to them about you and acknowledge your amazing act of love.

We’d like to provide the child with the best opportunities, love and respect. We are open to the possibility of the child having an open adoption with you depending on your wishes and what you are comfortable with.

Thank you for considering our family to be a part of your journey.

Hello and thank you for considering us as adoptive parents for your baby. We are Larry & Cindy. We have been together for 5 years, married for almost 4 years and we’ve been inseparable ever since. We truly enjoy spending time together whether we are alone or surrounded by friends and family.
We don’t have children of our own yet, but we have more than 2 dozen nieces and nephews from 6 months old to 20 years old. I know what you’re thinking, 2 dozen! That’s a huge family! Our family includes Cindy’s 2 sisters, Larry’s brother, 3 nieces, and 3 nephews divided between our siblings. The rest are the children of our closest friends who are the family we have chosen. We love all of them for their unique personalities and we love watching them grow up.
The one wish we’ve always had was to have children of our own to raise alongside this huge melting pot family that we’ve made together. We have always known that we wanted to be parents, and we would be honored to adopt your baby.
We know that your decision to place your baby with an adoptive family comes from a place of love, and we promise to provide unconditional love and support to this child. We know that our family is also looking forward to welcoming a new member. We hope that through getting to know us better you will realize that we are the right choice.
Thank you again for considering us.

Hello and thank you for taking the time to view our adoption profile. We are Scott and Katie and we have been together for over 11 years and were married six years ago. We are active and love being outside, whether it be playing soccer or softball, hiking and camping, or just sitting on the porch. Our relationship is grounded in a strong friendship and deep love for and trust in one another.

Since early in our relationship, we’ve talked about building our family through adoption. We were overjoyed to welcome our first child, Morgan, through adoption in 2019. We love being parents and know that we can provide a supportive, fun, open, and loving home for our family. Our family and friends are incredibly supportive of our decision to adopt and are excited to welcome the newest addition to the family.

Scott is originally from the Philadelphia area and Katie is from Chicagoland, but we have lived in Washington, D.C. for over 11 years. Our community is a great place to raise a family. We look forward to welcoming another child into our family.

Sandra & Ron

Thank you for taking the time to get to know us. We are grateful that you are considering us to raise the child that you are expecting and appreciate that you are considering this loving path. Please know that your child will have the brightest of futures with us.

Our seaside town is a unique place where it is truly ideal to raise a family and to grow up as a child. We believe in providing your child with every educational and developmental opportunity balanced with fun and variety. Our families are tight-knit and so supportive of our plans to adopt a second child.
Both future siblings will get to share this bond. And your child will immediately gain a lifelong, sweet-mannered, and energetic older brother! Our marriage is long enduring. Sandra is naturally maternal, joyful, and full of energy. A nurturer, she makes everyone feel special. Ron is gentle in nature and kind and patient.

He relishes playing endless games and reading books over and over again to a child’s content. Our immediate family is made up of Ron and Sandra and our two-year-old son who also joined our family through the beauty of adoption, and our sweet long haired lab. Our extended families live no more than 10 minutes away and that includes three darling cousins who are always ready to play. Our family members all have a playful spirit and a sense of adventure which makes travel, outdoor activities, and beach life a natural part of our lives. Our quiet seaside area remains charming and safe and very much home to both of us. Our home is close to great schools and nearby parks and Orlando parks are near.
We hope to share this quality of life if we have the opportunity. Thanks to the support that we have from our family and our community, we’ve been able to build a loving, welcoming, and lasting home. We offer your child the stability of our strong marriage and that we will be loving parents and providers.

Carrie & Jordan

Hello! We are Jordan, Carrie, Adelyn & Jake. We appreciate you taking the time to learn more about our family and we look forward to getting to know you as well. Your strength and courage as you consider adoption is admirable and we know this must be a time of great uncertainty for you. We hope our profile will give you a sense of who we are as a family and the love we hope to share with both you and your child.

We met in college and have been best friends ever since. We have been married for 9 years and live in Georgia where we love getting a taste of all four seasons. Carrie is a nurse turned stay at home mom to our two kids Adelyn and Jake. Jordan says she is passionate about caring for others and thrives as a mother. Jordan works in commercial real estate, which allows him flexibility and family time. Carrie describes him as a devoted father who is patient and loves teaching the kids new things. Adelyn loves doing crafts, swimming, and ice cream while Jake’s favorites are the zoo and playing with his big sister. They are both so excited about the possibility of another sibling to join in their fun and dance parties! We also have a friendly yellow lab named Bryan who can often be found napping in sunshine in our backyard.

We love to spend time adventuring as a family whether it be on walks through our neighborhood, at the playground with friends, or exploring a new hiking trail. We strive to share our love of the outdoors with our children and provide them with new experiences. We are committed to raising our kids in a loving, patient, joyful home where they can be involved in a diverse and inclusive community. If chosen as adoptive parents, your child will always know their story as well as the love you have for them. We will always speak of you with kindness and respect and consider you a part of our family.

We truly love being parents and are are excited to grow our family through an open adoption! Thank you again for considering us. We are praying for you throughout this process and wishing you peace and comfort as you make this decision.

With love, Carrie & Jordan

Ruth

Thank you for taking a moment to get to know me! I think that adoption is a loving and courageous choice. I would like to share my story with you – why my desire is to adopt and to welcome a child in my life at this time. I’m ready and my heart is open!

I am a professor whose career has centered around assisting children with special needs and their families. I planned on having children after establishing my career and have always been open to adoption. After experiencing my own challenges with fertility, my desire to adopt has only grown. My experiences both personally and professionally have well prepared me to care, nurture, and raise a child. I look forward to providing a warm, loving, fun-filled home and a solid foundation for a bright, promising future. I have a large community and family—related and unrelated—who cannot wait to extend a warm welcome and shower a little one with love.

Thank you for taking a moment to review my profile. Wishing you kindness and peace as you weigh your decisions.

Warmly,

Ruth

Elyce & Joe

Hello!  We are Elyce and Joe.  Thank you for taking time to read about us.  We do not know each other yet, but we have so much respect and care for you already.  Whatever place you are in, we know you are so strong and selfless and courageous.  We will always think of you this way as the years go by.

We’re so grateful for the ways that adoption has already changed our lives for the better!  Our daughter, Annika, came home to us in 2020 and has filled our lives with fun and joy and love.  We are forever grateful to her birth mom for entrusting us with her.

As a family of 3, we love to visit with family and friends, explore our city, and spend time outdoors. We are very active as a couple and a family. We both come from big families (Elyce is the oldest of 6 and Joe is one of 4). Each side of our family is full or people excited to welcome another child to the family!

We truly believe that a relationship with biological family is so powerful and we want that for our children when possible.  Our hope is for our children to experience love from us as well as from their biological family throughout life.  We have a close connection with Annika’s birth mother.  We text regularly, sending pictures and stories.  We also see her often in person.  She is part of our family.  We would be happy to do the same with you as well.  We would love to stay in touch with you through calls, texts, and visits.

We want you to know that you are in our minds and prayers.  We hope you find clarity and peace during this time and into the future.

Rebekah

Hi there!

Thank you for considering me as your adoptive parent!

Being an adopted child myself is what brought me on this journey to meet you! I have always known I wanted to adopt a child especially because I was.

This choice you are making will never be taken lightly. It will be honored and cherished. You and your child are true blessings. I know you are brave and beautiful, and I will make sure your child knows how really special you are.

I am so grateful that I have a connection with my birth mom, for what she did for me and how much she appreciates my adoptive parents. I respect her immensely. I want to be able to do the same for your child. I will give him or her all that I can with love, support, understanding. Hazel, my almost 7 year old, can’t wait to meet, hug, love and teach your child. She will be the most compassionate big sister.

I deeply believe that the very best gift you can give an adopted child is to be open with them from the very beginning. Your child will always feel like he/she belongs and being adopted was a gift between two amazing women, you and me.

Warmly,

Rebekah

Nancy & John

We have known for years now that adoption is the path God has chosen for our family. We believe this is the right time for us to adopt a child. To us, adoption is one of the most beautiful expressions of love in this world. Kids have always been a big part of our lives. We have been involved in big brothers/big sisters, volunteered with kids in school, we enjoy taking our nieces and nephews to the water parks, football games, and just being a part of their lives. We love and adore kids; we have the patience, mercy, grace, and love that we look forward to pouring into our child. We understand the challenges that can come with parenting and we look forward to them and all the joy that comes with it. We have been praying for you and the little life inside of you. We pray that you have peace and strength as you make this decision. The decision before you is not an easy one. We don’t know what has brought you to this place, but I know that amazing good can come out of any situation. We believe whole-heartedly that God is orchestrating everything behind the scenes and trust that you will be led to make the best decision for your baby and yourself. Thank you for considering us, we can’t wait to start this journey.

Eve & Chris

Thanks for stopping by!  We’d love to get to know you, but first, a little about us…

Married for 7 years, each year together strengthens our bond.  We live in a suburb of Richmond, Virginia, and have family in Florida, Texas, and Pennsylvania.  Between the young kids in our neighborhood and the very active kids’ group and music and arts program at our church, there will be lots of opportunities to make new friends!

Eve works in healthcare, and Chris is a creative.  He even made our profile book and illustrated our story.  We can’t wait for future story times, breaking out into random made-up song and dance sessions with a little one, and enjoying all of those fresh perspectives and moments that only kids offer.

We desire to give your baby a home to feel safe, loved, and valued every day.  We’ll provide a well-rounded, down-to-earth life with plenty of homecooked meals. (We both love to cook.  It’s one of Eve’s expressions of love!)  A little one would be the perfect addition to join us in our travels (including Disney), at-home movie nights, game nights, gentle hikes, and walks in the park or around the neighborhood.

We will always portray you favorably and will aim to learn about and include traditions and culture as applicable.  Thank you for your selflessness and courage.  We wish you blessings and will be praying for you during this journey.

Pat & Patty

Hi, we are Pat and Patty. We are very grateful you are considering adoption and viewing our profile. We will do our very best to paint a picture of our life, to help you imagine your child as a part of our family.
We were college sweethearts, and boast 26 years of friendship and 19 years of marriage. We count our blessings, laugh often, and try not to take ourselves too seriously. A stable home, with a loving couple that has an excellent track record of making sacrifices for the sake of their marriage and the good of the family, is what we have to offer a child.
May whatever you decide, bring you peace and comfort. If you choose to make an adoption plan with us, we promise to do all we can to support you.
-Pat & Patty

Kayla & Derek

We’re Derek and Kayla. We have been married 3 years and live in Iowa! Kayla has always lived in Iowa, and Derek was born in Florida and moved to Iowa at age 8. Adoption is on our hearts after a long struggle with infertility. We very much believe when we meet this sweet baby it will make sense as to why God sent us on this journey.

Please know how much we are praying for you and your sweet baby as you decide what is going to be the best for your family. Open adoption can be a gift, and we plan to follow your lead on how much communication you would like. If you wake up one morning thinking of the baby and want to see what they are doing, we’d be honored to send a photo.

We are a hardworking, fun-loving couple. Derek works at a casino as a table games dealer and Kayla works in HR/payroll. Our favorite thing to do together is travel. Our favorite trip has been Disney World and can’t wait to take our future family. All of Kayla’s family lives in our same town and we get together for all the holidays. We absolutely adore our two nieces and two nephews and spend most of our weekends with them.

Now that you’ve learned a little about us, we hope you can take a deep breath and know that all will be okay. We know at this moment that you are simply trying to do what any parent would, and that’s doing what is necessary to ensure the best for your child. Given the opportunity, we look forward to building a relationship with you and offering love, hope, and support during this process. Please check out our profile to get an even better idea of who we are.

With Love,
