dear expectant mother

Thank you so much for learning about us and for considering giving us the opportunity to do something we’ve wanted our whole lives: to be parents. While we can only imagine how difficult this is for you, we want you to know how incredibly grateful we are to have you even consider blessing us with the opportunity to raise your child. Being so close to our extended family, we see how much joy being a parent can bring. We want to build on the happiness we have experienced as brothers and uncles by being loving, caring parents to your child.

Should you choose us, we promise your child will receive the greatest love and care we can give throughout their life. We are excited to provide a loving, stable home for a child to grow up in. We will see that your child receives a good education to set them on the best possible path to success. We can’t wait to give a child a happy childhood full of wonderful memories with friends and family.

Most importantly, if chosen, we will do everything possible to make your child understand they are loved by us, family and friends, and you. We will take every opportunity with your child to celebrate you and always share our gratefulness for the gift of love you gave to us.

Should you choose us, we promise your child will receive the greatest love and care we can give throughout their life.

About Us

Israel works in the health field and is passionate about helping others. He is very outgoing, funny, and lighthearted. Lyle is an engineer and scientist, and he is very thoughtful, generous, and considerate of others. We met each other online, and on our first date, we spent hours getting to know one another. We both realized there was a special connection. Our family and friends are very important to us. We spend a lot of time with our family and help care for our nieces and nephews. We also have long-time friends we like to hang out with. We are very active and enjoy running. We’ve run several races together. We enjoy going on runs and walks together, watching movies, cooking, and having dinner with friends and family.

Our Home & Pets

We absolutely love our home and neighborhood! We have a big yard with trees and flowers. In the summer, we enjoy spending time in our pool, and when it’s cold, we like to sit around the fireplace. We live at the end of a quiet street in a very friendly neighborhood with many young families. Kids are always out riding their bikes, and parents are playing with their kids in the evening after work. We are close to a nature trail where we like to go on walks in the evenings. The schools are some of the best in the area.

Our Extended Family

Family is very important to us. Israel has a sister and brother, and Lyle has a brother. Together, we have six nieces and nephews we adore. We are so lucky to be the godparents for several of them, and we are excited to be pardiños for our niece’s upcoming quinceañera!

We talk with all of them several times a week to hear how they are doing, and we enjoy taking them out to the movies or just staying in and playing games together. When the weather is nice, we like having family over to cook out and play in the pool. Every summer we travel to see Lyle’s parents for the Fourth of July, and we make several trips a year to visit Lyle’s grandfather in Florida.

We love spending holidays together. For Halloween, we will dress up and go trick-or-treating around the neighborhood with our nieces and nephew. On Thanksgiving, we wake up early in the morning to do the Turkey Trot with our family. During Christmastime, we get together with everyone to decorate the Christmas tree, exchange presents, and share a big meal.

What Led Us To Adoption

Given that we are so close to our families, we both always wanted to be parents. Soon after meeting one another, we knew we had enough love to share with children, and when we got married, we vowed to open our home and hearts to children. We know of several other couples who have adopted, and it is heartwarming and encouraging to see the love and care they give. We are excited for the opportunity to grow our family, and we promise to provide a child a loving, fun, and caring home.
