A Letter from Chinedu & Golden
Thank you for taking the time to get to know us! We are so grateful for the opportunity to share more about ourselves. During our 7 years of marriage, we have experienced so much love, we have furthered our educations, grown in our careers, traveled, and so much more. After trying to grow our family and endured great loss, our hearts turned to adoption. We are excited to become parents and share our lives and adventures with your child. The love and respect we share for one another can be felt in our safe and nurturing home, and we are excited to share these blessings and more.
After nearly 8 years of marriage, telling our story never gets old! Born and raised on two different continents over 6,000 miles apart, nothing but love and God could have brought us together. Chinedu is a registered nurse who was born and raised in Lagos, Nigeria. Golden is a teacher and school counselor who was born in Chicago and spent many years in Los Angeles before returning to Chicago.
Our love has stood the test of time and distance, and now we are so blessed to spend our lives together. Our relationship is built on our trust in God, our love and devotion to one another, and our strong connections to our families and friends. Together we have partnered in life, and we enjoy this companionship. We love to travel, watch movies, dance, share laughter, and our passion for helping others. With all the love we have to give, we are anxious to grow our family and share this love with your sweet little one.
Chinedu is an inherent leader, protector, and provider. You can see the love he has for his family in his mannerisms. He is dedicated, faithful, and very loving. He has such a caring nature, works hard at his job, is handy around the house, and a true passion for learning. His drive to pursue his education is inspiring! He is very spiritual and has a great relationship with the Lord. When he is not busy with work, Chinedu enjoys soccer, golfing, reading, and watching sci-fi shows. He has a love for music of any genre as well and I know he is excited to share his passion for music with our child. Chinedu also looks forward to sharing his culture and native language with our child.
Golden is truly one of the most caring and selfless people that I have ever encountered. She has a heart for God, is charming, kind, loving, respectful, intelligent, and industrious. She is also honest, loyal, humble, and compassionate. Her ability to put others’ needs before her own, is demonstrated in the way she cared for her mother, and as well as her career as a teacher. Golden is a passionate woman with a love for children and ensuring that they reach their fullest potential. In her free time, Golden enjoys self-care time, reading books, traveling (visiting local and international historical sites), and volunteering at the local Ronald McDonald House. I know that she will be an outstanding mother and can’t wait to share her love of learning new places and seeing new things with our child.
Our support system consists of both family and friends, spread across the entire world. Despite the distance, this tight-knit group of people has been a major source of love and support throughout life. We both feel blessed to have so many special people in our lives to offer support, fun, laughter, games, dancing, and walk down memory lane with.
Chinedu’s parents have been married for nearly 50 years, and his siblings live in the United Arab Emirates, England, Canada, and Nigeria. Chinedu’s Aunt, a mother-like figure, lives in Michigan. As the older sibling to a brother and sister, Golden has always been the leader in her family. Golden has experienced a renewed sense of closeness to her extended family, most especially her cousins that are more like siblings. During the holidays, the family travels from Illinois, Georgia, and California to be together. The strength derived from a strong, supportive network of individuals is something to be cherished. Our friends and family are so very excited for us to be growing our family through adoption.
Our home is a spacious two-story, three-bedroom house with plenty of space to run around, play, and entertain. Our home includes a twelve years old dog named “Roxie” who loves children and they definitely love her back. We live in a safe and diverse neighborhood that is very family-oriented with friendly neighbors and lots of other children to play with. When you tour our neighborhood you can feel the sense of community, and be confident that everyone looks out for one another with our active neighborhood watch program. Near our home are lots of parks, shopping centers, lakes, and a community pool for those hot days. The school district is impeccable and has produced some great scholars who grew to be pioneers of their community.
We promise your child will be loved each and every day by us, our family, and our friends. We will share with them their adoption story from the beginning and speak of you and their adoption story with love and respect. We promise to encourage them to chase their dreams no matter how big they may be, and to provide any resources that will help them along the way. We will provide them with every opportunity to enjoy vacations and travel the world while learning about and experiencing new cultures. We will celebrate every milestone and provide them with a safe and loving environment to grow up in. We promise to raise your child to know God, and His mercy and grace.
We would be honored to keep in touch with you however you desire. Be it through pictures, updates, letters, or visits.

|More About Our Family|
|Our Special Interests|
We love to hang out with each other, watching movies, eating various foods, and traveling. We both love to read and listen to music. We are both interested in helping others and are known for volunteering with children, the elderly, and the homeless. Chinedu has an interest in sci-fi and Golden in suspense. Chinedu is interested in entrepreneurship and Golden wants to hold groups for women who have grief due to loss (infertility, death, etc.)
We are Christians and believe in God, the Son, and the holy spirit. We both attend a Non-denominational Christian Church. Without faith, we would be hopeless. We have endured so many adversities. And our faith has brought us through. In addition to our own faith, we have respect for other forms of religion. We are open-minded and not opinionated about other forms of religion that may seem different from ours.

Golden loves R&B, especially the 90's. It reminds her of the days when she grew up and attended college. She listens to rap and knows a little trap.
