Thank you for taking the time to get to know us a little better. We can't wait for the opportunity to talk with you and learn about your dreams for the future. Our promise to you is to always be open, honest and to provide a nurturing, caring home for your baby. We want our children to know how much they are loved by their birth and adoptive families. Our children will receive our support, help in learning from mistakes, and unconditional love.
We would love to hear from you, so please contact us at any time!
Alex is a loving, silly and sweet little boy that loves to help out. Some of his favorite things are singing and dancing, playing with cars, trucks and Lego blocks, as well as learning how to read. We are lucky enough to have a good relationship with Alex's birthmother and her family, and love when we get the chance to meet with them. We know Alex will make a wonderful, loving big brother. He is looking forward to reading Splat the Cat stories, and singing the Speckled Frog song to his new sibling.

Our family is an important part of our lives and we love spending time with them. The majority of our family is less than an hour drive away. Our family embraces and supports our decision for open adoption. There are lots of aunts, uncles, and grandparents that are excited to welcome a new addition to the family. We are lucky that there are many cousins in our family that can't wait to play with a new little one. There will not be a shortage of playmates, arms to be snuggled in, or laps to sit on!

Our cozy home in Tracy, CA has a great backyard with a fort and swing set that is perfect for playing. There are also several parks in our neighborhood where we can play with lots of other kids. We share our home with Bo, the cat who thinks he is a dog and loves to share a blanket with anyone.
When Candy and I both worked at the same company, I would find reasons to go see her. I knew early on that she was someone very special. Candy is the sweetest and most caring person I have ever met. She is very nurturing and adores children of all ages. Candy loves reading bedtime stories in different voices, singing lullabies, and doing arts and crafts projects. She is looking forward to more midnight feedings, diaper changes, and slumber parties!
When I first met Jim, I noticed his outgoing personality. He won my heart when he returned home from a trip to Lake Tahoe, his truck loaded with ice chests full of snow for my niece and nephews to play with. They still talk about how much fun they had that day, playing in snow in 70-degree weather. Jim enjoys being a dad and is looking forward to cuddling and continuing family traditions such as pumpkin decorating and carving at Halloween. Each one of us gets a pumpkin to decorate as a favortie character, something spooky or just plain silly.
