Mid 30's, mixed race couple from California, open to any ethnicity.
We are Cassandra & Beto. We are a down-to-earth couple from Woodland, California, twenty minutes from the heart of Sacramento. We want you to know how deeply thankful we are that you’re reading our letter. Adoption is a very personal decision and we have the utmost respect and admiration for you.
We are happy and excited to have found a path to parenthood through adoption. We have so much love to give a child and look forward to welcoming a baby into our home and life. It’s our hope that our letter will allow you to get to know us a little better, and that you will consider reaching out to us so we can learn more about your hopes, concerns and dreams for your child.
We were introduced by a mutual friend in 2005. We had an instant connection which developed into a close friendship. In 2010, when the timing was right, we went on our
first "official" date. We have been together ever since and just celebrated our four-year wedding anniversary.
We are an active couple. On weekends we can be found riding bikes or standing side by side in "tree" pose in yoga class. We are lucky enough to live close to (kid-friendly) foot and bike trails and enjoy taking our 8-year-old lab mix, Guinness, on day hikes. We enjoy relaxing on long weekend trips to beautiful San Diego, Portland and Monterey. Family is very important to us, and we will often have our family and friends over for dinner and “game night.”
We look forward to summertime each year when we pack up our travel trailer and head to the mountains for a week. Beto loves to fish and is excited to teach our child how to cast a pole. Cassandra will be on the sidelines taking tons of photos. We would love to share those photos with you, if you are open to it. On really hot days you can find us hanging out in our pool. Our friends bring their kids over to swim and eat Beto's "famous" BBQ chicken. We look forward to taking our child to swim lessons so he or she can enjoy family pool time.
We are excited to teach our child Spanish. Beto is fluent in the language and Cassandra continues to learn. She took a Spanish course at a junior college two years ago and continues to work on her vocabulary. We feel it's a significant advantage in today's world, and we plan for our child to experience all the richness and learning that comes from getting to know different cultures and people.
