Dear Expectant Mother,
Thank you for viewing our profile as you consider your options for your baby and yourself. We don’t presume to know what you are going through or how difficult a choice you are facing. All we can do is try to convey to you how ready we are to love your child unconditionally and raise him or her in a stable, loving, and opportunity- and laughter-filled home.
Our promise to you is that, if you choose us, your child will be our number one priority for the rest of our lives. While we are excited to share our traditions and lifestyle with this child, we also fully recognize how parenthood will most likely change us. We know that new traditions and daily activities will take hold over time. We are ready to grow with your child and learn from him or her as much as we will strive to teach him or her how to be loving, independent, and good.
We expect that this journey will be challenging and there may be setbacks along the way. But we know in our hearts that this is the right decision for us. If you choose us, we will be beyond excited to meet you, to learn your story, and to build a relationship that will become the foundation of your child’s life.
We were both stationed in Italy serving with the same Airborne Infantry unit returning from Afghanistan when met for the first time. A casual conversation over a glass of wine that neither of us expected to last more than the evening has since endured for over seven years. Bobby, a West Point graduate and business analyst, loves to mow the lawn, read books about math, and visit thrift stores on the weekends with his mom. Jeff, an Arizona State University graduate and market research analyst, enjoys wrestling toys from our two dogs, tackling home improvement projects, and staying active in veteran outreach programs. We truly can’t wait to be Dads and to welcome a new member to our fun, loving family. We can’t wait to grow together and to share our love for adventure and our excitement for life.
We live in a lush, safe, friendly neighborhood in an excellent school district in the suburbs of San Antonio, Texas. Our red brick home has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and an intimate backyard space where we spend many evenings barbecuing, swimming, and playing fetch with our two small pups, Champion and Bandit. Our gated neighborhood is filled with working families and young children, complete with a big park and speed bumps on every road. We both have less than a ten-minute commute to work, and we are a very short drive to the best the city has to offer, including Six Flags, the Riverwalk, and endless outdoor adventures in the Hill Country.
Our Extended Family
Right now our little family is made up of us and our two dogs, Champion the Jack Russell and Bandit the rescue. Champ is very independent and strong-willed while Bandit is the protector of the house. We are lucky enough to live 30 minutes away from Bobby’s parents who have retired and now enjoy life in Texas Hill Country. We spend many weekends with them going on long hikes and helping them with all of their electronics. Bobby has one younger brother who is still active-duty Army and is raising a wonderful family of his own. Jeff’s family all live in Florida. His mother and father both live in the Orlando area, while his older sister and her family live in Tampa. Jeff also has two younger brothers, one who is stationed in the Florida panhandle with his wife and children, while the youngest brother is living at home.
What Led Us To Adoption
We discussed children very early in our relationship and both knew we wanted to be Dads. But it seemed out of reach for us given our unpredictable lives in the Army. Thankfully, things have settled down over the last seven years and we are at a place in our lives - physically, financially, and spiritually - where we can raise a family in a stable, loving, and opportunity-filled environment. While we always knew that we wanted to grow our family, it was this past Christmas spent with all of our young nieces and nephews when we really felt like it was time to begin our adoption process.
