Dear Expectant Mother,
We cannot wait to start this journey with you. Please know that we promise to love your child, to educate him or her, and to always remind him or her of you throughout their everyday life. We promise to always be there for him or her as well as you in those moments when you need our support. We promise to always be open and honest with you. We are not only adding a child to our family but you will be added into our lives and family too.
We are excited to become parents again, and Giuliana cannot wait to become an older sister. The gift you are considering giving us is a priceless one. You are making such a difficult decision, but just know the choice you make will be the right one for your child. There will be nothing but love and adoration given to your precious one.
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts, and honestly, we will never be able to thank you enough for even considering us for this precious gift. Thank you. You will hold a special place in our hearts forever.
We are Yvette and Tori. We met at the YMCA while working as site directors with the After School Care Program. After a year of dating and adventures, we were engaged to be married. Now our careers have taken a different path, but the focal point for both of us is still serving others. Yvette works in the medical field as a medical assistant, and Tori works as a corporate facilitator, teaching drivers how to be safe while behind the wheel. We both strive to move higher within the companies we work for. When we’re not working, we enjoy spending time together by going to movies, attending festivals and concerts, and being active with anything that involves our daughter, Giuliana.
Our home is very spacious, with four bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms. It is a two-story house and is always busy because it’s usually full of family and friends. We celebrate many holidays and birthdays here. We enjoy sitting on the front porch or being in the back yard together as a family, and you can always hear our dog, Bailey, snoring somewhere in the background. We cook together, clean together, and always have some kind of music on. Close to our home, there are several hiking trails, parks, and even amusement parks. Our neighborhood has several elementary, middle, and high schools close by, and we have many movie theaters, restaurants, and shopping areas within a five-mile radius of us. We visit all of these places very frequently as a family.
Our Extended Family
Tori has two older brothers who still live in the same area; her father has passed away, and her mom lives in a different state. She is one of ten grandchildren, which means she grew up in a very large and loving family that championed academics, church, sports, and hard work.
Yvette has one sister and two brothers, and her whole family, including most of her 25 cousins, still lives close by. They are all very big on the values of family, and that was always put first.
From cookouts to weddings and Sunday night football games, we always want to spend time together. We love to travel, and we usually take a trip together two or three times a year. We always celebrate Halloween by giving out candy at our house, dressing up, and attending our local pumpkin patch. Every holiday is spent with family, and we celebrate with a lot of music in the background and food on the table. We celebrate everyone’s birthday with a huge bash, and we attend the State Fair each and every year!
What Led Us To Adoption
We both want to become mothers again. It was always our intention to adopt, and it became evident that this was a path we both wanted when talking about growing our family. Giuliana is also very open to the idea of adoption and cannot wait to gain a brother or sister. Both of our families are very open and supportive of the idea of adoption, and talking about adoption with family and friends only became more exciting with the idea of building a relationship with not only your child but also you. We cannot wait to meet you both!
