Thank you so much for considering our family! We are Andrew, Kelly, Henry and Kyle from Northern California. We admire your strength and the love that you have for your baby. Parents to two great boys, we are excited to welcome a third child into our loving home. We will be thinking of you and hope that our families can intertwine in this loving way.
Dear Birth Mother...
Getting to Know Us
We are high school sweethearts and have been married for 13 years, and together for nearly 20 years. We have traveled the world together, while Andrew played professional soccer, getting to experience many different cultures and communities. Meeting so many different people from different backgrounds has been humbling and we are really grateful to expose our children to those experiences. Although we have had many wonderful journeys, the one we are most proud of is becoming parents. Our two sons are the light of our lives and we cannot wait to expand our family one more time.
We are a fun and laid back family and pride ourselves on integrity, open communication and unconditional love.

Our Hobbies and Interests
We love to travel. Our favorite destination with the kids is Hawaii. Our family has spent a lot of time there and we enjoy hiking to waterfalls, swimming in the ocean and visiting The Disney Aulani Resort to have breakfast with Mickey Mouse. When the kids are older we plan on taking them to Australia and Japan. We love being active and enjoy all types of outdoor sports including biking, swimming, surfing, skiing, skateboarding, tennis and soccer.
We are big foodies and enjoy finding local eats all over the bay area. We especially love a good taco truck and eating dim sum in San Francisco.
We love the holidays and always decorate themed cookies. In the fall we like to visit pumpkin patches and bake apple pies. We throw a big Halloween party for our whole family where everyone, even adults dress up in costume. At Christmas we wear matching pajamas and Kelly’s Dad dresses up as Santa.
Meet Kelly, by Kelly
I am a stay at home mom. I grew up in the bay area and love being active. I spent a lot of my childhood at the beach and camping in the mountains, and love to be outside as much as possible. I adore animals and spent many years fostering both puppies and elderly dogs. Before kids, I worked as a diamond buyer and later as a real estate agent I made the decision to be a stay at home mom when my first son was born, so I could give my all to my kids. I love being able to spend as much time as I can with my kids and look forward to continuing that with our new child.

Meet Andrew, by Andrew
I grew up in California. At 5 years old I decided I wanted to be a professional soccer player and was lucky enough to fulfill that dream for 10 years. Playing soccer has taught me the meaning of patience, hard work and discipline. After retiring from soccer, I transitioned into real estate development where I work with a team to build large projects. The best part of my day is coming home to see my family in the evening. To get ready for bed, the kids usually take turns reading me a book before I read them one before the lights go out.

We live in a safe and beautiful community in Silicon Valley. Our home is located 45 minutes south of San Francisco, with lush greenery, hiking trails and fruit orchards as well as fantastic schools. The weather is always nice so we spend lots of time outside. Being only 25 minutes away, we can throw some food in our car and enjoy lunch at the beach while the kids play in the sand. We have a 4 bedroom home with a large yard filled with mature oak trees and room to run. We live within walking distance to the school, ice cream shop and parks.

Henry is 7 years old. He is a very sweet and kind big brother. He is always looking out for his younger brother and constantly making him laugh. Henry is very outgoing and loves to tell jokes. He excels in schools and his favorite subjects are Science and Math. He plays on a competitive soccer team that travels locally. He also loves to read and his favorite book series is Harry Potter.
Kyle is 5 years old. He is very mature for his age and loves to build things with his Dad. His favorite activity is going to Home Depot and fixing things around the house. Kyle adores his big brother and can’t wait to be one too! He drew a picture at school of his new baby sibling and shared all the activities he was going to teach them. Kyle also plays on a soccer team and enjoys baseball too.
Fun Fact: We love listening to live music. We took our kids to their first concert last year, it was the Wiggles! We can't wait to take them to more shows as they get older.
Meet Chipper and Rocky
We rescued Chipper from a small farm when we lived in France and Rocky from an animal shelter during our time in Philadelphia. Both dogs are so sweet and patient with our kids. They love giving kisses and cuddles when they get home from school and vice versa!
Family and Friends
We have been together since high school and our families grew up blocks away from each other. We are all very close and have spent many weekends and holidays together as a group.
Our siblings are also high school friends and even went to the same college. Our immediate family all live within the bay area and the majority of our extended family too! There are a lot of kids in our family and we love hosting weekend bbq’s. Both of our mothers are a great support and love attending the kids’ soccer games and school activities. They can’t wait for their next grandchild!
We stayed very close with our high school friends, some of which are also high school sweethearts too! We consider each other family and love getting our kids together on the weekends.
Family is the most important thing in our lives. We have always kept a warm and loving home and promise to always be there for your child. We strive to be the best parents we can be and promise to always honor your role as their birth mother. We look forward to learning about you and can’t wait to hear from you.
Your child will know they are loved. We will encourage them in their passions and be their champion of support and ambition. We will share with them a life of travel and educational opportunities of their choosing. We hope to share the values of integrity, honestly, hard work, compassion, kindness, mutual respect and gratitude. We believe in positive parenting with age appropriate boundaries.
Thank you for taking the time to get to know us.
