 HELLO!

 

Thank you so much for taking the time to learn more about us as you begin the courageous steps to explore all options for your child. We are a loving, nurturing (and fun!) family with a tightknit community that cannot wait to support us on a new parenthood journey. We can imagine that you have a lot to reflect over right now, and we hope that our letter will be helpful as you consider choosing a family to love and raise your child.

 

ABOUT US

 

We have been married for 10 years and our families have actually known each other for over 30 years! We both moved to New York after college where we started off as friends but quickly began dating. We fell in love and after 4 years of dating we got married. In 2018, we decided to move west to Los Angeles for a new adventure!

 

Ross is the ultimate definition of “cool, calm, and collected.” He’s laid back, chill, and enjoys a good laugh. Ross is a Financial Consultant at a top finance firm where his clear-headed and responsible nature comes in handy. In his off time Ross enjoys basketball (the Brooklyn Nets are his team!), cycling, and cooking…he’s known for making everything from steak and shrimp to vegan cinnamon rolls…and he can’t wait to bring our child into the kitchen. When Ross is at home you can count on the music to always be ON (especially while cooking!); Outkast is his all-time favorite group.

 

Morgan is the more social member of the family, she can usually be found having fun with friends. She is a TV Executive in the entertainment industry which she loves because she gets to watch TV as part of her job—plus she gets to work from home! Morgan is the ultimate planner and puts energy, focus, and passion into making sure she can balance everything. She is an avid swimmer, considers chocolate her favorite food, is part of Beyonce’s “BeyHive”, and is a huge Disney fan—she is so excited at the prospect of taking our future child to Disneyland for the first time.

 

OUR PARENTING PHILOSOPHY

 

We currently have no children, but we’re “Uncle Ross” and “Auntie Morgan” to our nephew, niece, and numerous godchildren. As we think about parenting our own child, we want to instill values of respect, love, strength, independence, honesty, and hard work in them. We consider race an important part in the process of adoption and believe in the value of continuing to create Black families. We each were raised to celebrate our Black excellence and we want to offer our child a sense of pride in their own racial identity when they go out into the world. 

OUR HOME + OUR FAMILIES

 

We live in Los Angeles, CA in a 3-bedroom home with a big backyard, basketball hoop, outside patio and a fenced-in pool with a lock. Our guest room is ready to be turned into a nursey and playroom, and we are within walking distance of the largest multi-use park in the Valley, filled with bike/jogging trails, dog parks, tennis courts, and a lake. We both come from large families with many aunts, uncles, and cousins….some of whom have adopted themselves! We also have an amazing group of friends in L.A. that have small children who can’t wait to have a new playmate.

 

THANK YOU!

 

We’re honored that you’ve taken the time to read our letter. If you decide that adoption is the right choice for you, we will welcome you into our lives in whichever way makes you feel most comfortable—from the exchange of photos, emails, and texts to video calls and in-person visits—we will follow your lead and desires. Our hope is that our child understands how much they are loved by you from the moment they are born.
