Chad, Karen & Julianna
Dear Biological Parents,
We are Chad, Karen, and Julianna. We live in beautiful, southwest Florida, with quick access to the beach. We have been married for 7 years. We have loved being adoptive parents for the past 2.5 years! Our family has much more love to offer, and we look forward to adding to the family.
Adoption is already part of our family story. Chad was adopted, along with his sister. He has been blessed by his birthmother’s choice to place him with his parents. In 2014, we became Julianna’s adoptive parents! We enjoy a warm relationship with Julianna’s birth mother, which has included emails and picture updates. We feel called through prayer to be adoptive parents again!
We’ve laid the ideal foundation for a growing family, starting with our education and careers. Chad worked hard to go to Harvard and cultivate a career in finance, which has provided family-friendly work opportunities, a good salary and generous benefits for our family. Karen is a former teacher, and is teaching Julianna skills to prepare her for private preschool. Karen will make sure our children have the best possible education! Karen currently chooses to work part-time from home as a business consultant, though she may re-evaluate that choice as the family grows. Her part-time job offers flexibility, and generous maternity leave benefits.
Our home is an ideal home to raise a family! We have a large family home on a cul-de-sac within a gated community. Our home has a spacious yard and fenced-in pool. We have a playground, waterpark and duck pond near our house. We have a choice of several top-notch private schools in our community. Best of all, we live less than 3 miles to the beach!
We love to travel as a family. Since becoming a family of three, we have already vacationed on both U.S. coasts (California, Maine, Massachusetts, Florida) and even in Italy and Puerto Rico! We also are blessed that both of our sets of Julianna’s grandparents still live on the family farms on which we (Chad and Karen) were both raised! Julianna loves to visit her grandparents’ farms in Pennsylvania and Arizona. Also, we are already planning our first family skiing trip!
We cannot wait to add to the family! Our home and our hearts are open, and we know Julianna would make a great big sister. We would be delighted to meet you and answer any questions you have. Thank you for your consideration. God bless you and your baby!
Chad, Karen, and Julianna
