Hello! Our names are Adam and Samantha, but friends call me Sam. Thank you for taking the time to learn about us. We know that if you are reading this you have a very serious decision to make. We are incredibly grateful to be considered as adoptive parents for your child. Adam and I are beyond excited to start a family and to explore the possibility of being on this journey with you.
We love children and have always hoped to be parents. Your selfless act of pursuing an adoption plan for a couple who is not able to have children on their own is incredibly brave. We feel strongly that anyone who would consider adoption for their child must to be a strong, loving, and selfless person.
We want you to know that should you choose us to adopt your child we will make sure that they know how courageous and brave you are. Your child will be loved and cared for, their education and passions will be supported, and they will always have a place to call home. Please know that we will only speak of you with love and respect; and that we promise to remind your child of your love, strength, and courage in making such a selfless decision.
As you look through and learn about us, we hope you will see how much we would love to be parents who make a child the center of our lives and give them an opportunity to thrive in life. We promise you: we will love your child unconditionally and completely, making sure their life is full of love and affection both at home and from our welcoming and warm family and friends. We will provide excellent medical care, teach respect for different cultures by being good role models, instill strong values on education, serve nutritious home-cooked meals, enjoy warm conversations, laughter, bedtime stories, lots of playtime, and so many opportunities.
How We Became Us:
We met in San Francisco, 7 years ago, and since our first date, we’ve been inseparable. Adam loved my sense of humor, and I loved Adam’s kind, easy going nature. As we grew to know each other, we fell in love and knew that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. We make a good team. We are respectful, nurturing, and supportive of one another. We laugh together…a lot.
Adam and I have many of the same interests and grew closer to each other through our love of music, art, food, and the outdoors. We are both sports fans and one of our first dates was to a baseball game! We rescued a small dog, Bodie, in 2015. He’s a friendly, gentle dog who is great with children. We love going on hikes and to the beach together.
We are ready to be parents together:
Now is a great time for us to become parents together. With two successful and stable careers, we are fortunate we can both be very involved in raising a child. Adam has a very successful career in real estate development management, and I am a consultant in the food industry, specializing in cheese. The best part of our careers is the flexibility we have.
We live in a gorgeous suburb of San Francisco in sunny California, in a safe neighborhood with big trees, parks and playgrounds. Some of our favorite activities are hiking in local parks, picnicking with friends, seeing live music, and playing dominoes! There are wonderful schools and tons of kids here. This is a great place to raise a family.
Our Neighborhood is great for children. Our neighbors are welcoming, with events every season for kids. In fall we have a Halloween Parade with a costume competition! During Christmas, our neighborhood is full of Christmas lights and it’s magical! We have friends and families of different cultures and backgrounds, who invite us to share in their cultural festivities. We’ve created a strong group of friends and neighbors who we consider family, who we celebrate holidays, birthdays, and special events with. Our friends’ children call us “Aunt Sam” and “Uncle Adam.”
Three families in our close circle of friends have adopted children, so your child will have other adopted children to bond with. Leslie and Matt adopted Desmond, Glenn and Alyssa adopted Winter, and Nikki adopted Zeus.
We are close to all our friends’ children, taking them to museums and playgrounds, and babysitting when our friends go for a night out. The last time we watched our friend’s children, we did a scavenger hunt together, taught the kids how to make fresh popcorn on the stove, and then watched The Lion King. We all had a blast!
Why Family is Important:
We want to bring a child into our family to share our love of life and learning. We have always wanted to grow our family with a child, and will provide a loving, stable home where our child will be able to express themselves freely and feel safe to be whoever they want to be. We know that the same love and respect that we feel for each other will help to confidently raise and love a child as they navigate the world. We both come from supportive families who taught us to be true to ourselves, be kind to others, and ask questions about the world. We can’t wait to pass these lessons to our child.
We hope this has helped you to learn about our values and the kind of life we hope to offer you child. We would love to learn more about you and your dreams and aspirations for your child.
We hope you will reach out and can't wait to meet you.
Whatever decision you make, we wish you peace and comfort.
Adam and Sam
