Dear Expectant Mother,
Thank you for taking the time to look at our profile. We are glad you like our faces. We want to begin by expressing our absolute gratitude for you and your brave decision. We have not met yet, but you are in our thoughts often as we dream about who you are, what our family will look like, and how we will raise your child if you choose us. We cannot understand what you are going through but we hope to be a support and a place where you feel comfortable, cared for, and respected. Your child will be loved.
For us, the adoption process is wholly bittersweet. We attempted to conceive for three years before we began medical testing to see if there was something wrong, which there was. Unbeknownst to us, we are both infertile and cannot produce our own children under any circumstances. This led us to adoption. We have wanted to expand our family for many years and believe this is the right path for us. Becoming parents will allow us to see the world through your child’s eyes, and give us a greater sense of purpose for the life we are living.
We are a multinational couple. Guillaume was born and raised in a suburb outside of Paris, France. Guillaume grew up in a densely urban and multicultural community, allowing him to experience much of the world by stepping outside of his front door. Samantha was born and raised in a very rural area of California, participating in things like 4-H and raising animals. We bring a varied and adaptable background to help guide and teach your child many things. We now live in Northern CA in a fairly urban area, but still have a backyard to garden in. We work hard every day to care for each other, our home, and our family.
We want our child to have dual citizenship (USA and France) and to also speak French so they can play and bond with their future cousins who are already learning English. All of Guillaume’s family lives in France so our family will be visiting often. We intend to send your child to a French immersion school that is close to our home and attend a French High school so that they have the option to go to university in Europe if they so choose. We want to raise your child to be a global citizen who is able to shift between cultures as needed. We love to travel and be in nature and we intend to raise your child with the same values.
We are very excited about creating traditions with your child, honoring her/his ancestry, and creating a family culture. Samantha loves to celebrate the holidays and is very excited about having a child to celebrate with, from trick or treating to what to serve Christmas morning, Samantha can’t wait. Guillaume is ready to teach your child how to hike, camp, and rock climb, taking them in the outdoors often, and in as many countries as possible.
From the child to the adult they will become, we hope that you will feel that you absolutely made the right decision in making an adoption plan with us for your child. We already know they will be an extraordinary person and we are eager to meet them.Sincerely,
Guillaume & Samantha
