A Letter from Randall & Joanne
Thank you for allowing us to share our lives with you. There are no words that can express the joy we will experience when we become parents. We believe children are a gift from God. Since we are unable to have a child of our own, we are excited to adopt a daughter up to 5 years old who we can love, nurture, and watch grow. We would love to maintain contact with you through photos, letters, and annual visits.
After dating for ten years, on a beautiful spring day in April of 2004, we were married.
The two of us are lawyers. In our free time, we enjoy each other’s company by watching science fiction television shows, traveling to interesting places, and going to the movies. We also spend time with family and friends.
We are both true believers in the power of education. We understand that if you want the doors of opportunity to present themselves that you must seek them out. The best way to do so is through education. We are constantly seeking to improve ourselves and increase our available opportunities. We will ensure that a child in our care is provided with the educational tools to create as many opportunities as she desires.
Joanne is warm, gracious, and approachable. She is also patient and kind. A native of Trinidad, she moved to the United States at a young age. She and her twin brother grew up in a loving home with her educated mother and her grandmother. Her hobbies include reading suspense novels and playing the piano. Joanne is very close with her family, especially her niece and nephew. Although they are older now, Joanne has been involved in their lives from the time they were born.
Joanne is a spiritual person who has a strong connection to her Christian faith. She finds strength in her faith that helps her overcome life’s obstacles.
Randall is a positive person with an outgoing personality. He is very friendly, and people take to him quickly. He is caring and patient. A native of Washington, DC, Randall grew up in a loving home with two educated parents and several siblings. His interests include history, astronomy, and amateur radio. Randall enjoys spending time with both our families including my niece and nephew.
During his early career, Randall was an Army Officer and spent five years traveling around the world. He was stationed in Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. As a result of that time, he has gained a great interest and respect for other cultures.
We live in a suburb of Georgia that has excellent schools, parks, and places for children to learn and grow.
We recently moved to this area and are enjoying exploring our new surroundings. We have found the people of Georgia to be friendly and helpful. Our home is a nice, two bedroom apartment located in a quiet neighborhood. The apartment complex is well managed with a nice assortment of activities and facilities, including a swimming pool, outdoor terrace and club room and various scheduled activities for both children and adults occur on a regular basis. Also, there are several parks with playgrounds nearby.
Family is important to us. We are very close to our immediate and extended family. As a matter of fact, we always spend holidays, birthdays, and special occasions with them. For Thanksgiving and Christmas, we travel to our siblings’ homes in Maryland and enjoy a festive dinner. When possible, several cousins may join us. In May, we always look forward to celebrating Joanne and her brother’s birthday as well as Mother’s Day.
We promise that we will provide your child with the best life possible.
We believe that if you treat a child with respect, that child will respect you. Care, respect, and honesty are some of the values that we plan to instill in our child. We will create a home where she feels loved and safe. We will encourage her to work hard in school, excel in extra-curricular activities, and strive to work toward a great career in whatever field she chooses. Also, we plan to keep open communication with her so that she will always feel comfortable to discuss any issue with us.
Ultimately, our goal is to have her experience a well-rounded life. We plan to educate her in private schools, take her to museums, and travel abroad with her before she reaches the age of eighteen.
Thank you for reading our adoption profile and considering us as adoptive parents for your child. We hope to meet you soon.
