Thank you for taking the time to learn about us. We sincerely respect and appreciate the very courageous choice you are making in placing your baby for adoption. We can promise you that in our family, your baby would be deeply loved, supported and encouraged throughout life. We are very excited about starting a family, as it has been our hope for many years to share our lives and love with a child!
We are Ellen and Charles from Northern California and have been together for eight years. We met through mutual friends, had fun dating and developing a strong relationship over two years, then got married surrounded by our friends and family on a sunny fall weekend in San Francisco.
We tried for several years to have children, including two years of fertility treatments, but all the stars did not align for us. However, we are both very excited about building our family through adoption! We love children and have wanted to be parents for a long time. We also look forward to providing a secure, comfortable and happy home for a child.
We love living in the Bay Area as it has so much natural beauty and many fun places to explore. With all its parks, walking trails, and kids museums, it is also a great spot for families. On weekends you can find us hiking local trails by the ocean, playing tennis, cooking a great meal for our friends or just hanging out in the sunny California weather!
Our three-bedroom house is very comfortable, with views overlooking the bay and a number of families with children living nearby. The neighborhood is very friendly and people are often out walking along the tree-lined streets. Both our church and several excellent schools are within walking distance.
Your baby would be joining a home filled with love, laughter, creative play and a focus on learning. Education is very important to both of us and we will provide the best possible education throughout life for your baby, from excellent nursery schools to a great college experience. We feel very fortunate that when we start our family, Ellen will be able to spend most of her time at home with a little one. Additionally our families and friends are excited about our adoption plans and look forward to being part of our extended family!
Thank you for taking the time to get to know us better. You would always have a special place in our hearts and our deepest gratitude for helping us build our family.
Ellen and Charles
