After seven wonderful years of marriage and 16 years together in total, we are excited to finally extend our love to a child through adoption. First and foremost, we want to tell you how much we admire your strength and courage for wanting what is best for your baby and considering an adoption plan. We understand that your baby's future is what is most important as you explore your options. We hope that our profile allows you a glimpse into our lives. We hope that it shows you who we are and what kind of life we can provide for your child. We also have family and friends who have adopted over the years, so we know first-hand how adoption can enrich the lives everyone involved. We have a cousin who was adopted. We see first-hand the miracle adoption is. We want to provide your child with a home filled with love, laughter, playfulness, good times, and most of all, learning. We can't wait to teach him or her all about football and art! We are elated to become a family of three and would be honored to be the family to love, nurture, and cherish your child. We have been waiting a very long time for this moment to finally become parents.
After six wonderful years of marriage, and 16 years together in total, we are excited to finally extend our love to a child through adoption. We are each other's best friend. We enjoy being together and spending time with our family. We have known each other since we were 15 years old. Will's sister is Heather’s best friend from high school and that is how we originally met. Heather became a very close friend of Will’s family, always spending the night and traveling with them. Later, when we were in our mid-20’s, we started to see each other in a new light. There was an undeniable spark and the rest is history! Together, we love to travel or just cuddle on the couch for movie nights. A typical Sunday afternoon is Will watching Falcons football (a huge fan) along with Heather baking goodies and crafting. Our favorite thing is to explore new places and cuisines.
We live just north of Atlanta and recently built a beautiful new home in a large private subdivision. Our home has an open concept chef’s kitchen. An adopted child will not only have his or her own private suite with a full bathroom, but also an adjoining full playroom as well as a craft room to let her imagination run wild! We have a big backyard to play in with amenities such as walking trails, tennis and basketball courts, and a large pool with a big spiral slide and waterfall! The schools are wonderful and just two miles away. People in our neighborhood are culturally diverse, friendly, and open with each other.
Our Extended Family
Will comes from an extended Hispanic family rooted from Colombia. His parents came to this country on their own 45 years ago and are now retired after working very hard for all of those years. Will has two sisters who now have five kids all together. He also has family in New Jersey and Miami. His family loves Latin food, Salsa music, and dancing. Heather's mother is American. Heather is an only child, but she has many aunts, uncles, and cousins close in age on both sides. There were plenty of people to play with.. Heather also has two half-sisters on her father's side. Her father immigrated to this country from Islamabad, Pakistan 45 years ago. Heather comes from a long line of artists and plans to share her family's love of art, sewing, and crafting, along with their classic American traditions. Both families are a huge support in our adoption journey and simply cannot wait to welcome a new baby.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have always known that we wanted to have kids and grow our family when the timing was right. Regardless of how that would happen, the method did not matter. We have always been open to adoption. However, after a medical scare that has now been conquered, we found having a child naturally was not possible. This did not get us down in the least. We know adoption is the path meant for us to grow our family.
