dear expectant mother

Although we don’t know each other yet, we want you to know we will be eternally grateful to you for helping us complete our family. We understand how hard it is to make this decision, which is why we want you to know you are not alone. You now have two new sidekicks to speak to and take care of you and your baby through this process. Going through this journey together is most important to us as it’s the beginning of our relationship with you and your baby. Stepping into this journey together will make our lives better and will help us create the bond needed to properly welcome this future life into our family.

We have lots of exciting plans for the future, we will travel and explore the world with your child. Creating memories with you now will give us exciting things to share with your child when they ask about you, because you are the most important part of this process as you are giving us the gift of completing our family.

We are excited to not only share our traditions and family cultures with your baby but also include yours. This will only help strengthen the child’s identity and self-pride in who they are and where they came from. Embracing all aspects of being a modern family is a priority for us.

We’re looking forward to making memories and thank you for considering choosing us as your child’s prospective parents.

Being fathers is a lifetime dream for us and we will forever appreciate you for helping us make our dream come true.

About Us

We have known each other since we were twelve, and our families have been very close all our lives, we are very lucky to have long term love for each other and a network of loving relatives. We share many passions and hobbies, making it easy to spend lots of time together. Traveling, exploring art museums, collecting art, music, theater, the symphony, ballet, opera and interior designing are some of the many passions we share. We enjoy our life together as we are fortunate to have lots of common interests and love for each other.

Our Home & Pets

Coco and Louis are our two standard poodles. (One is white and the other is apricot). We love taking them for walks in our neighborhood because they enjoy the ponds, bridges, gardens and tree-lined streets. Their favorite part of the neighborhood is the park area that is equipped with a playground, Olympic-size pool and a large area for them to play fetch.

Our favorite part of our home is our rec area in the basement where we have our own mini home theater and have lots of room to enjoy board games and play ball.

Our Extended Family

We have many traditions that we cherish and look forward to sharing with a new baby. Coming from Florida, we have enjoyed learning about various cultures, acquiring flavorful tastes for different cuisines, and awesome traditions.

We both have larger families and Christmas is an important holiday for both; we usually spend Christmas Eve with Chris’ family and Christmas day with Carlisle’s. Both families have large gatherings and we all come together to celebrate and enjoy one another. We anticipate keeping these traditions alive and creating new traditions as our family grows.

What Led Us To Adoption

Children have always been part of who we are as individuals and as a couple. We both come from large families and have lots of love to give. We know that sharing our life experiences, passions and family networks would only make our lives better. Being fathers is a lifetime dream for us and we will forever appreciate you for helping us make our dream come true.
