Six years ago, my work with a biotech firm brought me to the

Hi! We're Jay & Staci.

Family is very important to us, and adoption has always been a part of it. Jay and his sister were both adopted and so were Staci's cousins. 

Our daughter Mabel joined us through open adoption in 2013. Our relationship with Mabel's birth mom is very important to us and one reason we chose open adoption again. 

If our family seems like a good fit for you, we'd love to connect.

Hi, we’re Jen & Tony. We live in Oakland, California, where we love to be outside — running, biking, or drinking coffee in the sunshine on our deck. Jen runs operations at a tech startup in San Francisco. Tony, a pastry chef, will be a stay-at-home dad.
Adoption runs in our family — Tony’s mom was adopted — and should you decide adoption is best for you and your baby, we’d love to welcome you both into our family.

Thank you so much for reading our letter. We see adoption as an incredible gift, and we know it’s a big decision. We hope this gives you a sense of who we are and the kind of parents we’d be. Adoption has always been a part of our lives and we’re excited to create our family this way. If Mel’s great grandfather were not adopted, she wouldn’t be here today! Among our family and friends, some have adopted kids or were themselves adopted. We’ve been together for almost 20 years and married for the past 12. By heritage, Scott is German

Hello!

Thank you for taking a few moments to get to know us, even if it’s just from a few photos and words.

As Tine was adopted as an infant girl and grew up in a loving home, adoption for us is a natural next step, as we are unable to have a biological child. We can’t wait to become parents for the first time and to welcome a little beautiful soul into our lives.

Having relocated from Denmark in Scandinavia, we now live in Tiburon, California.

We are Lauren and Joe, from San Jose California. Thank you for your interest in getting to know us. We look forward to getting to know you too. We are so thankful that you are considering this process because it gives people like us the opportunity to become parents.
We are genuine, down-to-earth people who are very excited and ready to welcome a baby into our lives. We are both in our early 30’s and have been married for five years. We will be celebrating our 10 year anniversary together this year and we would be overjoyed to ce
