Dear Expectant Mother,
We are Brad and Gina from California. We are honored that you are taking the time to get to know us. We understand that this may be an uncertain time for you and it is with warm, heartfelt emotion, that we say how courageous you are to consider this journey.
We have been married for many wonderful years. We swear it seems like we just met yesterday! It amazes us that every year we feel our love grow even stronger. We feel blessed and truly fortunate to have found one another and adopt our sons Lucas and Mateo. Being parents is absolutely amazing and every moment a gift. Our family is our number one priority and we are excited to expand our family. Our youngest, Mateo is the most anxious to have and take care of his little sister!
We are enthusiastic to welcome a girl to bring her uniqueness to balance the harmony of our loving family. Gina was very involved with her niece through all her stages and looks forward to nourishing a strong independent girl of her own, while Brad is excited to spoil his little princess. Both are excited to find out what will be her interests and be involved in every way they have been with the boys interests. Both boys are ready to be protective big brothers and teach her the ropes of school, neighborhood, and introduce her to her many family members, including other young cousins and family members located nearby.
We both work for family-oriented companies, with highly flexible schedules. Gina limits her time at her job so it can be spent with our sons, enjoying the outdoors or volunteering at Lucas and Mateo’s school. Brad works from home full-time and is able to leave early to spend time with family. Both of them have volunteered for assistant coaches for the boys sports. They want the kids to be active and love to be active with them. The family eats and shares their day at the dinner table, cleans up together, and reads stories before bed. Family gatherings are frequent and special. Grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and close friends all live within a short distance from our house and regularly pop in for a visit. Our family and friends cannot wait to shower their attention on our new addition!
We have a spacious, warm, inviting 5-bedroom home full of bright light and a large grassy backyard with several trees. There are several kids in the neighborhood. People travel far to attend the safe and impressive halloween displays and treats in our neighborhood! Education is very important to us; both boys are attending private school near our home where individuality, creativity, and arts are emphasized. The teachers are outstanding, nourishing, and have become a key part of their lives. They have even invited their teachers over for dinner! Nearby is a hiking trail which has a kid-friendly farm and every year they have new baby goats, pigs, and sheep!
We look forward to simple everyday gifts with our children, such as teaching them the love for nature, camping, enjoying the outdoors, reading and eating together every night. We would be humbled to be part of your child’s loving development and wonderful future. Thank you for taking the time to read our story and for considering us for this lifetime connection.
Brad & Gina
