Dear Expectant Mother,
We’re so thankful you found us, and we hope this first step leads us all toward a meaningful discussion. We can’t imagine the weight of the choice you’re considering, but we want you to know that all we want for your child is a happy and loving home.
Should you choose us, we will raise your baby with kindness, love, and support. We hope you know that you will always be just as loved and cherished as your baby. Your decision to choose adoption will be remembered as the beautiful and selfless act that allowed us to become a family. Should you entrust us with your baby we would love the opportunity to travel the world. We’ve always dreamed of raising a child and hope to one day be able to take family vacations, experience new cultures, and learn alongside him or her.
No matter what life brings, we will face any challenge head-on, with openness and compassion. We hope to show your baby the beauty in life, but most of all we want him or her to know they are loved.
Thomas was born in Texas and grew up with one brother and four sisters. Robert was born in Texas, as well, and has one sister. We met in 2015, by chance, at the family bakery, and we eventually worked up the courage to ask for each other’s number. As fate would have it, our careers moved us even closer together. Eventually, we met each other’s families and instantly clicked. After a helicopter proposal, we were married in front of close family and friends. Currently, Thomas is a Pharmacist and Robert is a Financial Analyst. We live in Texas, near the city, and enjoy all of the fun and activities it has to offer. Our family also lives close by, and we’re grateful to have such an amazing support system as we begin on this journey.
We recently built our home in Texas. We love the location and enjoy the nearby restaurants, shopping, and venues. Our neighborhood has a private pool, splash pad, and clubhouse, and the families are many and diverse. We’re a short walk from a great public park with several trails and playsets for kids. Our home has a great backyard and covered patio, perfect for hosting friends and family. We have two dogs, one Dachshund and one Beagle, both of whom would love the addition of a brother or sister to protect and play with.
Our Extended Family
Thomas grew up with five siblings, one brother and four sisters, all of whom live very near to our home. He also has nine aunts and uncles who live within an hour of us. It’s a large, close-knit, and constantly growing family. He has four nieces and nephews, as well, all under five years old, so we know any child of ours will have many friends to play with and turn to. Thomas’s father is retired, and though his mother enjoys her work, she plans to retire in the next few years to spend more time with the grandkids.
Robert grew up in a smaller family, with his mother and sister. They both live close: his sister runs the family bakery (where we met!) and his mother owns her own business. We see them frequently and enjoy family dinner and movie dates as often as we can. They’re both super excited and supportive of our adoption journey!
What Led Us To Adoption
We’ve known from day one that we both wanted a family and that adoption was the right choice for us. Through adoption, we would be able to take on the role, responsibilities, and joy of fatherhood. Family has always been the main cornerstone in our lives, and we want nothing more than to have the opportunity to love, nurture, and raise children. We’ve worked toward the common goal of adoption from the early stages of our relationship with our careers, families, and building our home. Thomas grew up in the large family Robert always dreamed of, and now we’re hoping adoption can help make our fatherhood dreams come true!
