Robert & Holly
Thank you for considering us as potential parents! We can only imagine the difficult decisions you're facing. It is our sincerest wish for you to feel comforted knowing the child we raise will feel the immense love, which both you as the birth mom, and us as adoptive parents, have for him/her. We are deeply committed, excited, and thankful for the blessing of raising this precious child and growing our family!
Our Leisure Time
We are an active couple who have a lot of fun together! In our leisure time we like to take small trips to explore our area. Robert enjoys fishing, hiking, camping, walking the dog and landscaping. Holly enjoys spa days, socializing with friends, boating, and wine tasting. We both enjoy going to baseball games, touring and dining at local restaurants, horseback riding, boating, and riding 4-wheelers.
We are also active in our local church where we participate in events for kids such as Halloween parties, Christmas parties, etc. We also enjoy doing things for our community, and have fun decorating our home for Halloween and Christmas.
Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other
Holly About Robert: I love Robert's tender heart, his humor and his selflessness. Robert always gives to everyone else around him before himself. Robert is generous to others and is a loving husband and father. I respect Robert's commitment to marriage and family, and especially his commitment to his step-children. He has remained a consistent father figure in their lives because he loves them as his own, which demonstrates the caliber of his character and integrity. I also respect and admires the strength of Robert’s relationship and faith in God and the example he sets for our family.
Robert About Holly: I really love Holly's caring and supportive heart. Holly is a dedicated and loving wife. She is a true nurturer. Holly has a beaming sense of humor that effectively brightens the mood at any gathering. Holly is a true friend, fiercely loyal and deeply sincere in her support and love. Holly is the perfect example of a woman for my children, and I look forward to raising a child with her.
Education We Will Provide
We believe in a well-rounded education. We both fully support formal education, and will ensure our child has all the access they need to be successful in their schooling and continue on to college, or wherever their skills will lead them. Our neighborhood is in a good school district and we feel confident our child will receive a good education.We also believe that as parents, we have a morale and civic responsibility to raise a well-rounded child. We believe many of the life skills a child will need will come as a result of parental influence. We will do our part to expose our child to many different experiences where they can gain a well-rounded appreciation for the world they live in.
Our House and Neighborhood
We live in a family friendly suburb in sunny San Diego, CA. We purchased our 3 bedroom home a little over a year ago and have spent the last year working hard to make improvements and make it our own. Our home is situated in a family oriented neighborhood with frequent community events for families.
We live one block from the local elementary school and one block from a local lake, which consists of a splash water park, and multiple play grounds and picnic areas. We love to walk the dog around the lake each day, and can't wait to include a child in our nightly family walks together.San Diego itself is a family paradise with a world class zoo, beautiful parks, beaches, mountains, and amusement parks.
Our Extended Families
We both come from very loving and large extended families. Robert is the middle child, with an older brother and younger sister, while Holly is an only child. Robert’s family is based in Arizona and Holly’s parents live nearby in San Diego. Both sets of grandparents can’t wait for a new grandchild to love and spoil, especially Holly’s parents as this will be their first grandchild and Robert’s parents' eighth!
Robert has two grown step-children from a previous marriage, Dylan and Mackenzie. Robert has raised them since they were very young, and even though he and their mother are no longer married, they remain a very large part of our lives. Dylan starts his freshman year at the University of California Santa Barbara this year, and Mackenzie is a senior in high school where she is also part of the varsity gymnastics team. They, too, are very supportive and excited to welcome a new sibling into their lives!
As a family, we have many traditions, but one of our favorites is road trips! We love the holidays, debates about favorite football teams, and spending time together is what we value most. We love to spend time with our close community of friends playing games, taking trips to the mountains, dinner gatherings, etc. Our families are extremely excited about our adoption and we are so thankful for the support, help, and time they want to invest in this child and our family!
From Us to You
Holly has waited many years to be a mother, and Robert, well he has a custom cape and t-shirt proclaiming him as Super Dad! Though we are not able to have a biological child together, we made the decision to adopt after much prayer and soul searching. We believe that God sent us here to love this child and we find grace in that purpose. We will love this child deeply and we both believe that all children are children of God.
A little about Robert - after serving our country in the Army, he met his first wife and settled in San Diego where, as a family, they were dedicated to raising his step son Dylan and step daughter Mackenzie. Though the marriage eventually ended in divorce, his love and commitment for Dylan and Mackenzie continued. And to this day, both children are very much a part of our lives. Dylan starts his freshman year at the University of California Santa Barbara this year, and Mackenzie is a senior in high school where she is also part of the varsity gymnastics team. Robert now works in a government job and spends his free time fishing off the coast of San Diego and playing golf. He is extremely excited about the possibility of another child to share life with.
Holly is a San Diego native, and works in Human Resources for a San Diego company. Though Holly has been very social in the local Christian/church community, she still prefers a quiet life and evenings spent at home. Holly has spent many years hoping and praying to have a family. As a mom, she will ensure this child’s dreams are encouraged and pursued. Holly believes being chosen to be the parents of a child would be the greatest gift; this child will truly be loved.
We have been together for 4 ½ years and married for 2 ½ years. We feel as though God had a unique plan for us as individuals first, but then brought us together over a simple smile. While no relationship or marriage is perfect, we feel we are perfect for each other. We share a deep love for one another and commitment to our family together. Our relationship is full of fun, laughter, romance, and life’s challenges.
We are healthy, financially stable, have an incredible group of friends, and have loving supporting families. We value each other’s good sense of humor, adventurous nature, love, and most importantly our faith. We believe adopting this child is what God has chosen for us, and we will truly experience what it means to love and have faith.
You are the inspiration in the next chapter of our story. We understand your decision to consider adoption did not come easily, and we know your decision is based on love. We want to give you the comfort in knowing that this child will be loved in the way you envisioned. We will always honor you and your decision by making sure this child knows your love, your sacrifice, and how much you blessed us. We promise to share photos, letters, emails, phone calls, etc., so that you know your child’s story.
Thank you for considering us as parents. We know you have difficult decisions ahead of you, and please know you will be in our prayers as we go through this journey together.Much Love,
Robert & Holly
