dear expectant mother

Dear Expectant Mother,

We can’t begin to understand the conflict you’re having between your heart and mind. Is this a good idea? Will my child be loved? Will my child be safe? It’s the beginning of an endless list to ponder. The decision to pursue adoption at this moment in your life is the greatest display of love, and no one can replace that. What we can do is promise you we will put all of our effort into providing support and opportunities while teaching your child how to love the way you did by considering an adoption plan.

We can’t wait to enroll your child in sports, clubs, and music lessons and for them to travel the globe just as we have. Your child will be given the opportunity to truly become whatever they set their mind on being. Your child will experience opening gifts under the Christmas tree, a healthy couple to teach them how to love others and how others should love and treat them, and other cultures through our diverse friend group and travel destinations. Our goal is to support your child in order for them to achieve their dreams.

There are not enough words to express how much we will unconditionally love your child and will do anything to protect them, to guide them, and to cherish them. We hope you will let us partner with you in order to give your child the life they deserve.

There are not enough words to express how much we will unconditionally love your child and will do anything to protect them, to guide them, and to cherish them.

About Us

We have been together for a total of eight years, married for one, and we look forward to each day together. We are a loving, fun, open-minded, and adventurous couple that thrives on adventure. We are the poster children for opposites attract as Tony is the shy, introverted, and soft-spoken but logical and thorough one. Andy is the energetic, adventurous, outgoing, and social half of the couple. However, it’s those differences that make us thrive. Tony works in corporate real estate for a major corporation in WA. Andy is a behavioral therapist who works in the state’s only crisis center, specializing in adolescents with behavioral/emotional factors. We believe our unique combination will contribute to the healthy growth and development of any child we’d be blessed to guide throughout the excitement of life.

Our Home & Pets

We live in a four-bedroom, 2.5-bath home in WA. Our home is located in a safe and private neighborhood. We love our zen-garden backyard. This year, we built a standing waterfall that flows into a pond as the final piece to our oasis. Most families in our neighborhood are also young couples starting their lives. There are lots of children of various ages in this neighborhood. Being so close to the city, we can’t wait for all of the fun events and cultural experiences to share with your child. It is also very scenic, and we enjoy taking hikes, camping, and taking day trips around the area. During the summers, we like to spend most of our time at our lake house.

Our Extended Family

The vast majority of Tony's family resides in Washington and are all within 45 minutes of one another. Tony has two sisters, two uncles, two aunts, and 15 cousins of various ages who all love and adore him. Andy has a smaller family. Andy’s mother was adopted from an orphanage in South Korea and came to the USA when she was 15. Andy is extremely close with his mother and sees her on a weekly basis.

Every year we have a family get together at our cabin, and we cannot wait to share this tradition with your child. We celebrate every holiday and even venture out to experience other cultural holidays since we have a very diverse group of friends. From Kwanza and Korea’s National Kids Day to India’s Holi Festival of Colors, we want to share all that life has to offer and expose your child to as many interests.

What Led Us To Adoption

We both knew family was important to us and have been on the same page with expanding our own since the first year we were together. Our philosophy is that family does not need to be limited to biology but rather who you accept into your hearts. This is what truly makes one feel like they belong. We both have always loved the idea of raising a child together and wanted to wait until we felt we had the maturity and stability in our lives to do so. For us, adoption was the answer to how we would expand our family. Our intentions will never be to replace birth parents but rather fill the role as an extension in order to provide ongoing care and support to present opportunities to the child for a bright future.
