Dear Expectant Mother,
We cannot wait to start this journey with you. Please know that we promise to love your child, to always educate them, and to remind him or her of you in their everyday life. We promise to always be there for him or her, and also you in those moments that 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 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 behind the wheel. We both strive to move higher within the companies we work for. When we’re not working, we enjoy going to movies, attending festivals and concerts, and being active with anything that involves our daughter, Giuliana.
Our home has a very “rustic” vibe to it. It is very spacious, with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Our home is always busy and full of people (usually family!): we celebrate many holidays and birthdays here. We love sharing our backyard pool, and you can always find 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 about ten elementary schools within three miles of our home, and we have many movie theaters, restaurants, and shopping areas within a five-mile radius. 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 different state. She is one of ten grandchildren, which means she grew up in a very large and loving family who 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 live close. They are all very big on the values of family, and that was always put first.
From cookouts to weddings, to Sunday night football games, we always just 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 local 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 it was a path we both wanted when talking about growing our family. Giuliana is also was 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 the child, but also the birth mother. We cannot wait to meet you both!
