dear expectant mother

Dear Expectant Mother,

We want you to know we understand your decision to choose adoption is not an easy one. Through this journey we offer you our support and want to help you in any way we can so the right decision for you and your baby may be made with as little stress or worry as possible.

This will be our first child we raise but we know this will not be the only one. Growing up with brothers and sisters is very important to us because when we are long gone they will still have their brothers and sisters. Some things we are looking forward to as parents are after-school sports and clubs; teaching him or her how to cook, swim, and ride a bike; taking family trips; and never holding back their imagination during playtime. Whether it’s saving the universe as superheroes or dressed up at a princess tea party, their imagination will only be nourished as we play along in their make-believe worlds. Our goal is to instill in them the best of morals and ethics, like giving back to the community, helping the less fortunate, and being an honest and humble person. With every scraped knee and booboo, we look forward to being there for them in their time of need to comfort them no matter how old they might be. We know raising a child can be tough, but we have a strong network of family and friends to help us raise and teach this child. With us, every minute of every day, your child will be cherished, loved, and given the best of opportunities in the hopes that they will have a full and happy life.

Thank you for taking the time to read our profile. We want you to know you are special to us. Your consideration of us to be a family means the world. Not only are we excited but there is also a whole village of cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, great-grandparents, and friends who are all eager to meet and love this little one too.

With love,
Charlee & Joseph

About Us

We met in 2014 through a mutual friend. From the beginning we have been inseparable. We both enjoy experiencing local attractions and events, plays at the theater, art exhibits, day trips to the beach, and traveling. Places we’ve traveled to include Hawaii, Las Vegas, and Dubai. Wherever we go we are always sure to try unique hotels. At home, Joey enjoys his love of cooking and Charlee enjoys making our house feel more like a home. At family gatherings, you can always count on us to be the life of the party. We’d rather play and spend more time with the kids than chit-chat with the adults. All of our friends and family have always supported us, and we are so excited for this next step.

Our Home & Pets

Our home is a brand new two-bedroom luxury condominium nestled in the rolling hills of sunny Southern California. We are blessed with wonderful weather year-round, beaches only a short drive away, lots of activities and attractions for all age groups, and many excellent school districts nearby. Our community hosts weekly get-togethers like family movie night and even has an indoor playground, bowling alley, and kid-friendly wading pools! Theme parks at a close driving distance include Sea World, Legoland, Disneyland, and Knott’s Berry Farm. No matter what time of year it is or what occasion it is, there is always an exciting and fun place to go.

Our Extended Family

Charlee’s side of the family lives in northern California, in the Bay Area. This playful and energetic family is always full of laughter and excitement. The holidays are the time when his family makes certain to come together no matter what, especially for the Thanksgiving feast held every year at Uncle Phil’s.

Joey is the oldest of his two brothers who both live in Colorado. On his mother’s side of the family, they are all very passionate and hardworking; they love to be social and are gifted at making new friends quickly. Joey’s father’s side of the family all live here in Southern California. There are many cousins, aunts, and uncles. They are very vibrant and full of laughter, and nothing can come between this tight-knit family. This family has a bi-annual family reunion in Piru CA, and yearly Christmas get-togethers with all the nieces nephews and cousins filled with the traditional family Christmas feast, gift giving, gingerbread houses and cookies.

What Led Us To Adoption

Ever since the beginning of our relationship, we have felt the calling to start our own family. Through spending time with our nephew, goddaughter, and the children of family and friends, the joy of being around children has grown stronger. The joy we feel from their innocence and silliness and comforting them when they’re sad or hurt cannot be compared to anything else in this world. We have several close friends who were adopted themselves, and in speaking with them about their lives, our decision to adopt was only reinforced. For us, adoption is one step closer to being able to fulfill our deep calling and yearning to be parents.
