We are Lauren and Joe. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us better. We live in sunny Goleta, California with our son, Isaac, and our dog, Elwood.
We are so happy that you are reading our letter. We can only imagine your complicated feelings, and we admire you for considering adoption. Our family has already been shaped by adoption—we adopted our son Isaac when he was one day old, and we love being his parents. We wouldn’t change how we became a family in any way, and we’re excited to do it again! We can’t wait to experience the joy of welcoming your child into our family and having the privilege to love them, care for them, and be with them as they grow. We wish you all the best as you continue this adoption journey.
