Dear Birthmother,

HELLO & THANK YOU:

HELLO! We are Dalton and Andrew from Santa Rosa, California. We have been married for over 5 years and have lived in Santa Rosa our whole lives. In fact, we love it so much that we are living next door to Andrew’s childhood home and his grandparents who adopted him when he was a child. We both have adopted family members in our families and experience with adoption. We are both excited to possibly become parents to your son or daughter and are looking forward to getting to know you.

THANK YOU! Thank you for taking the time to get to know a little bit about us and for making what must be a very difficult decision. We respect and admire you for considering such a courageous and selfless choice and, should adoption be the dream you have for your child, we hope this is just the beginning of our story together.

About Us

We have been married for over 5 years and have lived in Santa Rosa, California our whole lives. We both love to travel and take long vacations once a year to destinations like Hawaii, New York, Canada, and one of our favorite spots, Disneyland! We both grew up on Disney and look forward to visiting the happiest place on earth with our child.

When we aren’t planning our next big vacation, we both enjoy watching movies, cooking different meals we found on Pinterest and enjoying time with our family and friends. One of Dalton’s favorite things to do with friends is host game nights. We invite everyone over for food and games and gather in our living room for good times and fun.

Our Home

We live in a 3 bedroom home in Santa Rosa in the Sherwood Forest neighborhood where all of the streets are named after the beloved children’s book, Robin Hood. We live next door to our grandparents, which is also the home Andrew grew up in. Andrew is excited to share all of his childhood memories with our child and create new ones.

We live one block away from a small park that is the perfect little getaway for all the children in the neighborhood where we intend to spend a lot of time in the sun, sliding down slides and climbing the play structures.

Our Extended Family

Both of our families live in Santa Rosa. We are so close to our families that we even live next door to Andrew’s grandma. We often have our families over for dinner and special occasions like holidays and birthdays and find ways to all spend time with one another.

Our families bring joy and happiness to our lives and we appreciate having such welcoming and loving people to surround ourselves with. We look forward to sharing these moments with your child and creating new traditions and memories with them.

Our Family Traditions

Family traditions are important to us. Some of our family traditions include spending Thanksgiving with Dalton’s family at his parent’s house where we eat way too much food and spend the day laughing and enjoying each other’s company. Another tradition is Christmas morning where we do presents and breakfast with Dalton’s family and dinner at our favorite Chinese restaurant with Andrew’s grandma.

We’re looking forward to reading stories to our child before bedtime and kissing their forehead before we say goodnight. We can’t wait to experience all of the “firsts” with our son or daughter, like their first steps, first words, first Thanksgiving with our family around the table and our first Christmas morning where we sit in our living room and open presents. We are also looking forward to encouraging our child’s dreams and enriching their future.

What Led Us To Adoption

We have both known, even before we met, that we wanted to adopt and start a family. Andrew himself was adopted by his grandparents and knows first hand some the experiences an adopted child goes through. Dalton’s mother was also adopted and raised by her grandparents, so we have lived with an understanding and appreciation for adoption in our lives. We are so fortunate to have an opportunity to raise a child together. We can’t wait to raise a child and to experience the wonders of being parents.

I adopted our son as a newborn after going through 12 years of infertility. Now, 23 years later, I am director at Everlasting Adoptions. Shortly after adopting our son, I started to feel a calling towards adoption. My career as a Human Resource Manager in Corporate America came to an end, and I entered what I now know is my purpose and passion in life — building families through the miracle of adoption.

Working with birthmothers and adoptive parents throughout the US for over 20 years has allowed me to utilize the skills I have been blessed with to serve others. I come to work every day not as a staff member coming to a job from 9 to 5, but as a person who is extremely dedicated and devoted to helping people like you every single day. I feel very blessed to have found my purpose, and I look forward to helping you with your adoption needs!
