Dear Expectant Mother,
Please accept our heartfelt gratitude for considering us as your child’s prospective parents. We cannot imagine how difficult this decision must be for you, but we know you want the very best for your child. We hope we can share this journey with you, showing every day that we have earned your trust by giving your child the best and most loving future possible.
We have been together for over 10 years. Over this time, our bond has become stronger, and we have created a happy, loving family that we cannot wait to share with a child. We look forward to sharing our passions—to cook dinner with them or to take them to see the world and show them all it has to offer.
We both come from very tight-knit families and both have many treasured childhood memories. We want to give your child the same awesome memories of growing up among people who love and respect them unconditionally. We want them to grow up with the same values our families impressed on us, to become loving, caring, respectful, and independent human beings. We want to provide the same opportunities we were given and to inspire them to be the best person they can be. We hope you can get to know us better and we can learn more about you and your own hopes for your child.
We met 10 years ago while we were both living in Singapore. We quickly became inseparable, and it became clear that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. We got married in a civil ceremony in New Zealand in 2014. Andre works in clinical research developing vaccines, and his job has taken him all over the world. Alfred is in marketing and shares Andre’s passion for travel. We are absolutely devoted to our seven-year-old dog that we rescued in Singapore. Our weekends are filled with long walks with Ari in woodland trails by our home. We’re both dedicated to our families and dote on our nephews and nieces. The time spent with our families has made us realize how much we want a family of our own. We have a rich and love-filled life and cannot wait to share it with our child.
We live in a sun-drenched, three-bedroom house with a yard that we share with Ari, our seven-year-old dog. Our town, located in one of the country’s top school districts, has an amazing park and miles of nature trails. Nearby we have a major metropolitan area with museums, an aquarium, public gardens, and lots of cultural events at our disposal. Just a short drive away, we have beaches, lakes, and ski resorts, providing us with plenty of recreational options. With so much to choose from right by our doorstep, we cannot wait to share many fun-filled weekends with our child.
Our Extended Family
”When are you going to start a family? The both of you would make great parents.” We’ve been asked this so many times by our friends and family during the course of our relationship, so when we broke the news about adopting a child, everyone was celebrated. They cannot wait to spoil our child.
Family is the most important thing in our lives. We both grew up in tight-knit families with two siblings each. We have six nephews and nieces between us, two of whom are our godchildren. Our family now lives in the U.K., Portugal, and Malaysia. With family spread across the world, we look forward to introducing different cultures to your child and to show your child where we grew up. We want to share the joys of Chinese New Year in Malaysia as Alfred experienced it as a child and the magic of Christmas in Portugal.
We are so excited to share our family’s traditions and to build new traditions of our own with your child.
What Led Us To Adoption
It was not immediately apparent to us that we wanted to start a family. We spent the earlier part of our relationship building a life together and creating memories with each other. Now that we have been together for 10 years, we came to the realization that there is something missing in our lives: the sound of little feet running around the house. We are now ready for this new chapter in our lives. Starting a family will have its challenges, from sleepless night to the upheaval of our daily routines, but we strongly feel the joy and happiness a child will bring to our lives will far outweigh the challenges. We cannot wait to share our love, values, and experiences with our child.
