dear expectant mother

Dear Expectant Mother,

We want to thank you for considering us to raise your baby. While we do not know what has brought you to the point of considering this path, we can only imagine it’s been a difficult journey. We hope what we have expressed throughout our profile has provided you comfort so you know if you choose us, your child will grow up in a home filled with unconditional love, support, laughter, and adventure. That’s our first promise to you and your child.

We also promise to encourage your child to be themselves. We promise to take them on memorable adventures they will someday want to share with others. We promise to give them the love and support they deserve, and when they are faced with challenges, we will face them head on—together.

A simple thank you doesn’t come close to expressing the gratitude we feel for such a selfless decision like you are considering. Your child deserves the world, and we will do our absolute best to provide them just that!

If you choose us, this would provide us with the opportunity to have the family we have dreamed of for years, and for that, we would be forever grateful.

About Us

Ricky works as a project manager for a global consulting firm, while Kyler works in healthcare as a director. We come from large families, with Ricky’s family all within walking distance from one another. Kyler’s family lives just a short car ride away. When we are not spending time with family, we like to spend time together exploring new places, making our house into a home, and still surprising each other with demonstrations of our love for one another. Most recently we have been spending time traveling to the beach on the weekends, where our family has a small cottage. After seven years of being together, we are ecstatic to finally begin the journey of creating our family.

Our Home & Pets

We live in a family-friendly suburb, and our four nieces and nephews live just a few houses down (ranging in age from one to four years old). We live with our beautiful border collie/blue heeler dog, Bella, and our friendly blue Russian cat, Mia; both animals love children. Our four-bedroom home has enough space for a child’s bedroom and separate playroom. We live on almost an acre of spacious land with plenty of room to run around and a child-safe pool in the back! Ricky’s brother, who is just a few doors down, has his own massive, park-like playground in his backyard too. We cannot wait for our future child to meet their cousins so they can all play together!

Our Extended Family

Kyler comes from a smaller family with a strong connection to one another. Although his family does not live in the neighborhood like Ricky’s family does, they do live in our state, and we make sure to see them at least twice a month. Kyler has one sister, and unfortunately she was born with a genetic disorder that causes her to not be able to conceive children of her own. Kyler’s family is so excited we have decided to begin the process of adoption to grow our family.

Ricky comes from a mixed family of both American and Puerto Rican backgrounds, which brings that much more tradition into the equation! We do Sunday dinners every week with Ricky’s family, but our favorite tradition is when we are able to have dinner with Kyler’s family every month when they drive up to visit. Ricky has one older brother and one younger sister, both with kids, and they love to get together at the local park on the weekends. Once we have grown our family, we see that being our new favorite tradition as well!

What Led Us To Adoption

We have always dreamed of being parents, but as a gay couple, we aren’t able to have children of our own. From the first conversation we had about how we would grow our family, we knew adoption was the path we wanted to take. We have seen close friends take their own adoption journeys, and we were so grateful to be a part of that experience with them. Our hope is that you will feel confident in knowing we can provide the support, encouragement, and unconditional love you want for your child.
