A Letter from Peter & Paula

Thank you for taking a moment to get to know us.  We are so excited to start our journey as parents through adoption. Your child will be raised in a family that values honesty, kindness, and creative expression. As teachers, we understand just how important having a supportive and loving family can be for a child, and we are excited to be that support for your child. Your child will grow up in a family that has a strong faith in God and a love for reading, the arts, travel, family traditions, and holiday celebrations. We look forward to welcoming your little one into our family and getting to know you too!

About Us

We met in Junior college while working on the play, “The Matchmaker”. We hit it off pretty quickly and began dating. After four years of being together, Peter proposed, and we have been married 11 years and it has been a great adventure.  We both became teachers and have spent the last 6 years sharing our love for literature and the theatre with our students.

We spend our weekends enjoying time with family and doing projects around the house. We have monthly game nights with our closes friends and love going to the movies. We also love to travel and go to Disneyland. We are excited to welcome your child into our adventures! We also have a huge love for the holidays and are very much looking forward to sharing those special moments with your child as well.

About Paula

Paula is truly the kindest person I have ever known and has a heart the size of an ocean. When it comes to her family, she loves completely and fiercely. As a mother I know that Paula will be loving, protective, and will stop at nothing to make sure that our child is safe. Paula loves to sing and dance around the house, enjoys crafting, crocheting, cooking Italian food, and reading. She takes pride in our home and loves to decorate the house for all seasons and holidays. One of the things I am looking forward to most is seeing Paula teach our future child how to sing and dance, and watching them put on recitals in the living room.

About Peter

Peter is the greatest person I have ever known. He is hardworking, loving, selfless, patient, funny, and kind. He is an excellent handyman, writer, and musician. He is a wonderful teacher to his students and a dedicated uncle for his niece. Peter works hard to provide for our family and goes above and beyond for those around him. He is easy to talk to and makes me laugh all the time. Some of Peter’s favorite activities include gardening, writing plays, and making DIY home projects. He is looking forward to sitting at the piano with our child and sharing with them his love of the arts.

Our Family

We are very close to Paula’s family, all of whom are very excited about our adoption plans.  Weekends are often spent working on projects together, shopping, Sunday night dinners, and playing games. Paula’s family has many traditions we are excited to pass down to your child, including our matching family Christmas photo tradition. We are also very close to Peter’s younger brother, his wife and their baby girl. We are all excited for our children to grow up together.

Our home in California

 We live in a cozy 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house with an open floorplan perfect for hosting our family and friends. We are currently preparing our 2nd bedroom as the nursery. We have a nice yard full of flowers and a couple of trees. It is a great space for a child to run and play with our two family-friendly dogs. We live in an area close to parks, schools, and other recreational areas. We are a short drive from our local mountains and close enough to visit the beach for a day. We look forward to, going as a family, to the mountains to play in the snow during the winter.

Our Promise

We promise that your child will be raised in a home filled with love, kindness, and understanding. In our home, your child will learn the value of an education, as well as the fulfillment of the arts, and a personal relationship with God and the Church. We promise to always keep your child safe and to rely on each other’s strength as we embark on this adventure. We look forward to getting to know you and are open to staying in contact through letters, photos, and visits though the years.
