Michael & June
Hello! We are excited to start a family and we are honored that you take time to consider us as parents for your child. We are a very loving couple with big hearts. We can't wait to share our abundance of joy and love with a little one! We are humbled by your courage and would be excited to start this journey with you!
We live a calm lifestyle that allows us to perform our jobs, live comfortably, and enjoy leisure time with each other. On the weekends we love to spend time with our friends and family nearby, usually just gathering in their homes or our home just to talk an enjoy each other's' company. We do simple errands such as grocery shopping or shopping at big box stores on weekends. We try to make it more interesting by finding unique foods to try and cook and keeping our eyes open for fun items that appear in stores. Once a year we like to take a vacation somewhere far away, sometimes in another country, and we like to take a shorter trip every year as well.
We have typical full-time jobs with 9-5 schedules but are fortunate to be allowed to work from home much of the time even after the pandemic is over. We like to exercise and do so on most days. After work, Michael usually runs and June takes walks especially when there is daylight during the summer. We would take a stroll together after dinner as well if we have extra time and energy.
Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other
Michael About June:: There are a lot of aspects I admire about June's character. First and foremost, she is very considerate of others and it makes her a very sweet person. She thinks of others before she thinks of herself to the point where she spends more of her effort on others. To give an example, after she had a surgery one time and was still just waking up from anesthesia, she remembered to ask me to buy food to contribute to a work function. She also has strong morals and believes in total honesty and decency. She was raised to be pure of heart and I am fortunate to have her in my life.
June About Michael: I admire Michael's thoughtfulness, humility, and sincerity. He always thinks of me and listens to me to make me feel better. For example, when I am sick he always does everything he can to make sure I am comfortable. He is very humble in the sense that he doesn't like to talk about himself too much and lets his actions speak louder than words. He does things without expecting recognition. He is genuine in his words and actions and I know he always has good intentions.
What It Means to Become Parents
It would be a blessing to become parents. We love children and have always wanted to have a child. Having a child to take care of and support really gives us a sense of purpose and responsibility. One of the most meaningful things about raising children is making sure they feel loved. Caring for the child would enrich our lives because we feel a great sense of joy when we can see that our child is happy and feels important in our lives.
We want to build memories with the child and show them unconditional love. We look forward to going through milestones such as their first words, graduations and hopefully watching them grow up and get married. We know we would learn so much from the child and vice versa. We would expect a lot of sleepless nights, challenges to authority, and adjusting to each other during the child's adolescence but we feel that the joy and love we would feel make it all worth it.
Our House and Neighborhood
Our community is very family-friendly and there are a lot of programs for kids. We have festivals and farmers markets as well as safe spaces for children to play. Events in the community include a St. Patrick's Day parade and festival, outdoor movies in the park, and summer camps. There is a publicly-funded water park connected to a public pool complex within walking distance of our house and several large parks with a lot of playground space. Our neighborhood attracts many young families with young children. With the many children who live in the neighborhood the child would have a lot of playmates to grow up with.
We currently live in two-story townhome with a warm, comfortable feel. There are two bedrooms, each with its own full bathroom, and a full living space, bathroom, kitchen, and patio downstairs. Our favorite place is the family room where we play board games and watch television together. Our community also has a large swimming pool where we see people lounging and a lot of families playing together on weekends.
Our Extended Families
We are lucky to have a lot of loved ones who live nearby. We make it a point to see our more immediate family members like our parents, June's brother and sister-in-law and nieces every week by having weekly dinners. Michael's sister lives 6 hours away and we visit each other a couple of times every year to catch up. Michael's extended relatives live in Canada and in Asia so we sometimes take vacations to visit them. A lot of June's cousins also live nearby and we like to gather with them and their children to celebrate holidays or just because. Celebrations usually include pot lucks where everyone brings a dish to share and we play games with the kids.
Our family and our friends remark that they are excited for our adoption and can't wait to see us be parents. They can't wait to welcome the child into their lives and show the love they have for child. The children in our extended family can't wait to play with a new cousin!
From Us to You
We are happy that you came across our profile and we hope you will consider us as potential parents for your child. Becoming parents has always been a dream of ours and we are grateful to grow our family through adoption. We can't wait to share our love with the child and experience the joy of raising a child. We know it is a very brave decision to make an adoption plan for your child. We respect how difficult it must be for you to go through this journey and we vow to be supportive and considerate throughout.
We would like to share a bit about ourselves so you can understand how your child's life would be shaped if we are his/her parents. We met in 2014 through an online dating app Coffee Meets Bagel. When we started dating it became clear that we are very compatible and have similar values. That is why we only dated for a year before Michael proposed and we have been married since 2017. We are deeply in love and always will be so the rest is history!
We both have careers that we are passionate about and we get to work from home, which will be very convenient when taking care of a child. Michael is in the medical device industry working in a regulatory affairs role which involves gaining government approvals for devices to be sold on the market. June's background is primarily business-focused and she currently handles accounts for a staffing company ensuring accurate payments. We also share common hobbies and like to do things together much more than we like to do things apart. Activities we do together include visiting interesting sights such festivals and museums, dining out (we are foodies), and healthy activities such as hiking.
When we decided to adopt and told our friends and family, they were very happy for us to potentially become parents. It means a lot that they were cheering for us because we know we will have a lot of support. Their encouragement also gave us confidence that we would make good parents. It made us think about how our personalities would serve us as parents. We believe our tenderness and loving nature will help us handle nurturing a young child. We both also have very strong principles of decency and honesty that we hope will be good influences as the child grows up and makes choices. We value strong relationships and we will make sure that your child will have a strong network of support throughout his/her life.
When we considered adopting a child we knew that our adoption may be interracial, which could be a very different experience and pose unique challenges. Before we made the decision to adopt, it was important to us to be aware of those challenges and ensure that we had the resources to handle them. We determined that we are able to support the child to develop a healthy cultural identity by seeking people and resources the child is interested in. We have friends and family across many different ethnicities so there will be many opportunities to learn from others. We also believe the exposure to different cultures can be a positive, enriching experience.
We are open to communicating with you post placement and can be flexible to develop a plan with you based on your comfort. We can exchange letters, emails, and photos and we can also discuss meeting in person if you are interested.
Families are created in many different forms and love is expressed in very different ways. Your child will know about the amount of love that you have in your heart when making this decision. We will provide your child with a life of love and laughter and will keep you in our thoughts as the child grows. Thank you for your interest in our story and for your immense courage during your journey. We hope we can provide you peace in your decision.
With our deepest love and appreciation,
Michael & June
