Dear Birthmother,

Thank you for taking the time to get to know us! We are very thankful for this opportunity and are hopeful that you will consider us to raise your baby.

We are Josh and Lenae from Rancho Cordova, CA, just outside of Sacramento. We previously lived and worked in the Central Valley; in fact, that's where we met! We got married in 2014 and have lived and worked in the Sacramento area since 2016. Josh is a respiratory therapist at UC Davis Medical Center and Lenae is a vice-principal and business manager at Courtyard Private School.

We have tried to have children for a number of years, but have been unsuccessful. So, now we are hoping to make our dream of becoming parents together a reality through adoption.

We hope you enjoy looking through our profile. As you will see, we will no doubt provide your baby with endless love, nurturing, compassion and will give your baby the life it deserves. Again, thank you for considering us to be your baby's adoptive parents.

About Us

Josh has worked as a respiratory therapist for 27 years. In a previous job, he worked at San Joaquin Valley College in Visalia, CA, teaching respiratory therapy. This is where he met Lenae, who also worked there as a general education instructor and as part of the student services department.

Lenae is currently the vice-principal and business manager at Courtyard Private School. Her background is in education and she has a lot of experience teaching children of all ages.

Both of our jobs provide regular, dependable income that can be used to help create a loving and healthy family homelife for your baby.

We spend our free time visiting with local family and friends and having fun with Josh's two children, Jon (20) and Drake (18). Josh enjoys creative writing and Lenae enjoys cooking, baking and playing the piano. We both also enjoy golfing and play regularly on the weekends. We have two basset hounds, Charlie and Walter who are beloved members of our family.

Our Home

We are fortunate to live in beautiful Rancho Cordova in sunny California. We live in a large neighborhood called Anatolia, which has two elementary schools, three large parks, and a community clubhouse with multiple swimming pools, tennis and basketball courts, a fitness center, and ongoing family and community activities. This family-oriented neighborhood is made up of many diverse families with different cultural backgrounds. We have a moderate backyard with plenty of room for a growing child to play, as well as a relatively large room in our home that will be dedicated for the nursery. Our home is spacious and will comfortably accommodate a growing family.

Our Extended Family

Josh comes from a family of four - his mother and father and older sister. He lived in the central valley of California for most of his childhood. His family participated in a Christian church regularly for his entire upbringing. His mother is Chinese-American and was raised in San Francisco. While growing up, one of his family traditions was to travel to that area several times a year to visit family and walk around in Chinatown.

Josh has two children from his prior marriage. His eldest son, Jon, is 20 years-old and is currently working and saving to move to Southern California to pursue his dream of becoming an entertainer and producer. Josh's second son, Drake, is 18 years-old and is just finishing high school with plans to attend Chico State University to pursue a career in business. There is not enough space here to describe how proud we are of these two boys. They are both incredible people who would undoubtedly make for supportive and loving siblings to our new child.

Lenae comes from a family of seven - her mother, father, two older brothers and two older sisters. She also has a very large extended family of aunts, uncles and cousins. Lenae is an aunt of six nieces and four nephews. She has been involved in their lives and has watched them grow from the time they were born. She was born and raised in Southern California around most of her family. She grew up in a Christian household and attended church regularly.

Our Family Traditions

We always try to get together with extended family for Thanksgiving, Christmas, birthdays, and other family events. We also visit both sets of parents on a regular basis each year. Josh’s parents live in Oregon and Lenae’s parents live in Southern California. We visit the beach when we can and go on trips with the family or by ourselves as often as we can. Josh's mother is Chinese-American and was raised in San Francisco. While growing up, one of his family traditions was to travel to that area several times a year to visit family and walk around in Chinatown.

What Led Us To Adoption

We have attempted natural childbirth unsuccessfully for many years. Our hearts have led us to adoption.
