Alex and Beulah

Dear Birth Parents

Hello,

First and foremost, we want to say thank you. Birth mothers are described as “superheroes”

and that is exactly right. Not many people will understand the importance of the decisions you’re making. We want to take a minute to say we see you, and we think you’re incredible. We pray that you would feel God close to you and that you have peace

throughout this process. Your love and sacrifice is beyond admirable, and there are really no words that can describe it. In our household, you will always be seen in a positive light and spoke of with respect. We will talk about your selfless act of love. So much love to you.

A little about us: we met through social media! We are both photographers and noticed each other’s work online. We started a conversation connecting over our love for photography. After a couple weeks of emails, facetime conversations and texting, Alex flew from Canada to meet Beulah in person. We connected right away and continued our long distance relationship and were engaged about 9 months later. We have been married for 6 years and live in Los Angeles, California with our dog Uji and absolutely love it.

We knew even before we were married that we would eventually have a family, it was never a question. We attempted to get pregnant and carry a pregnancy, and after two and a half years of it “not working” the idea of adoption entered our mind and we knew it was the way forward. We cannot wait to pour love into our baby, teach them with intentionality, and help them grow into the person they were created to be. We look forward to cheering them on in life and being their support system. We cannot wait to start our family in the way we know we are supposed to.

Dear Birth Parents

About Alex

I am 35, born in Canada and I’m the oldest of 4 children with 3 younger sisters. They’re all married, and I have 5 nieces and nephews! I’m a wedding photographer by trade, and work largely from home apart from the Saturdays that I’m actually shooting. California is the greatest place for this, as the light is second to none. I’m big into almost any kind of sport and play them regularly, though hockey is obviously a favorite. I really enjoy hiking, camping, golf, volleyball, or anything else active. I’m a big fan of sitting with coffee and reading or watching a good movie. I appreciate good art, whether it’s a film, a photo, a song or a book.

What Beulah Loves About Alex:

Alex is calm, steady and consistent and you know what to expect from him. He is a safe space for me to be myself and express myself without judgement. I love his loyalty and commitment. He is definitely the more laid-back person in the relationship and the balance works well. I love that he has his priorities in line and that the things that matter to him are simple. God, family and people. He enjoys the simple things in life and it doesn’t take very much to make him happy. Give him a cup of coffee, sunshine, and an article to read and he is loving life. He is as they say “my rock” and I know he is going to be the most incredible, intentional loving father.

However, I’m really not looking forward to the corny Dad jokes because he already does those and I’m not here for it, lol!

 

About Alex

About Beulah

I am 33 years old, born and raised in Brooklyn NY. I come from a large Italian New York family. I’m one of five and I’m the youngest. I have three brothers and one sister. Most of them are married with kids and the family is still growing. I have always loved and appreciated art, photography, music, nature, design and anything that involves creativity. Those are the things that I naturally gravitate towards. I began my own photography business when I was 17 and have worked at that since. I’m also an artist and sell abstract paintings. In all that I do I want to be mindful of a bigger purpose behind it all and loving others around me. I really hope to do even more in the future and to positively affect the lives of the people I encounter. I’m a deep thinker and I enjoy philosophical conversations. I enjoy a good debate however I LOVE to laugh and be silly. This is something that is very important to me, and I will go to great lengths to make someone else laugh!

What Alex Loves About Beulah:

Beulah is a very special person. She’s the most talented and artistic person I know, and lives life fearlessly. If there’s something that she wants to do or try, she does it, and immediately. Beulah is also incredibly empathetic and emotionally intelligent. I love that she loves to laugh, and that she’s always up for a new experience. She’s constantly putting others before herself, and genuinely cares about those around her. She’s always coming up with new ideas to make our lives better and more authentic, and almost all the progress we’ve made together is because she’s imagined it first. Also, she’s stunning. I like that too.

About Beulah

Our Life

Meet Uji

Uji is our one year old puppy that we adopted. We are unashamedly those people that are obsessed with their dog. She is so sweet and well trained. We wanted a well behaved dog that would be gentle with children, and she’s baby approved and ready for sure. We take her to the park or for a hike almost every day and we love it because it gets us outside even more.

Where We Live

We live in a gated community in Los Angeles, CA. It has a pool and a children’s playground. We absolutely love our home because of the view of the hills and our kind neighbors. It’s a diverse multicultural community. Sometimes we watch deer walk out from the hills and right up to our building. It’s very peaceful and is a nice escape from the busy city. We always say that if we never moved, we would be perfectly happy because we love where we live so much!

Our Life

Our Family

We do not believe a child is an extension of their parents, but rather their own separate and individual human being. Our desire is not to have our child look, talk, and act like us, but to guide them as best we can into the person they were meant to be. Being parents is a responsibility we do not take lightly but look forward to. We look forward to creating a safe caring and open environment. We want to raise our child with respect for themselves and for others as well. We want our household to be a peaceful environment where we communicate and work to understand each other in love. We want our child to know that we will always be their support no matter what. We look forward to teaching our child with intention, and taking the time to answer their questions. We look forward to laughs, silliness, dinners together, traditions, holidays, traveling together, and walking through the highs and lows together. We plan to be responsible in teaching our child about their culture and consistently making that a high priority in their life. It is not something we take lightly.
