We're a young, interracial couple excited and ready to adopt a child of color
Dear Expectant Parent(s),
We are excited to be a part of the open adoption process and look forward to getting to know you. While we don't know everything that you are going through, we imagine that you have a lot to think about. We are thankful for the time that you are giving to read about us.
We have been together since 2011 and have been wanting to grow our family through adoption. Open adoption is our first choice because it places the child first and we welcome the opportunity to build a relationship with you and your family.
We have great jobs that are flexible and will allow us to spend quality time with the baby. We are a part of a loving and supportive community that will help our child grow and learn!
Our adoption agency (Pact) is managing communication for us. They offer great respect and advice for expectant parents of color. Call them anytime at (800) 750-7590 or text at (510) 301-5584.
We met in 2011 in Detroit, Michigan. We moved to Oakland, CA together in 2014, bought a condo and got married in 2016!
We find joy being outside, spending time with close friends, building community, practicing sports, laughing often, cooking good food and meditating.
We support and enrich each other's lives and are looking forward to sharing all our blessings with a child. Brandon is black/mixed race, Michael is white. We look forward to raising a child of color in a way that honors their heritage and race.
