Adam & Tricia

Dear Birth Parent,

Our names are Adam and Tricia, and we are grateful for the opportunity to introduce ourselves and for the chance to grow our family through adoption. We appreciate you taking the time to consider us as adoptive parents to your baby. As you consider the future, know that our prayers are with you, whether or not you choose us. There is a special plan for your life and the life of your baby and if we are meant to be a part of it, we would think ourselves blessed.

In Gratitude, Tricia and Adam

About Adam & Tricia

We met through our church in 2014 and became good friends before dating and eventually getting married in 2017. We bonded through our love for serving in our community on home repair projects like Habitat for Humanity and working with the children and youth at our church. We were both raised in the Christian faith tradition with an appreciation for all religions and faith practices. When we’re not working or at church, we love to travel together, hike the nearby trails, watch movies, explore the sights of Los Angeles, go to Disneyland, and spend time with our small dog, Teddy (he’s very friendly and loves kids).

Our Home: We live in a 2-story home with four bedrooms in a family-friendly neighborhood in Santa Monica, CA. Our big backyard, the beautiful trees and a nearby park are our favorite things about where we live. We also enjoy riding our bikes to the beach (about 2 miles away!). Our community offers wonderful schools, libraries, farmer’s markets, a children’s museum, and plenty of activities for kids.

About Adam: Adam was raised in Los Angeles and his family continues to live in the same area, just a short drive from where we live now. Adam works as a Computer & Network Engineer for the Department of Defense on Navy & Coast Guard Ships. When he isn’t working, Adam enjoys listening to music and podcasts, playing his guitar and piano, and helping people repair their computers and phones when they break.

About Tricia: Tricia is from Lubbock, Texas, and we visit often to see her family. Tricia's jobs have always involved young people - from working in her church nursery to a day-care and as a nanny during college. The thread that connects it all is her passion and love for young people – connecting with them, supporting, and encouraging them. She now works at our church as the Pastoral Associate for Family Ministries. Tricia finds her work rewarding because she gets to be part of a community that cares for one another. When she isn’t working, she loves to read books, be outdoors and in nature, and hang out with friends.

Our Family: We fill our home with laughter and fun, creativity, music and books, and lots of love and support. Our church community and families are the biggest parts of our lives. We both come from large families that are close and like to get together often, especially for birthdays and holidays, and always with great food! Both of our family’s value lives filled with compassion, integrity, honesty, respect, healthy communication, and kindness for all.

Our Thoughts on Parenting: We are excited to be adopting and bringing a child into our family! Our child will be raised in a happy, loving, and safe environment with endless love and support for who they are. We have extensive experience with infants and children of all ages through our family and friends, as well as our church community. We were drawn to one another out of our shared love for children and being a part of their lives through various programs that nurture young people, including Sunday School, theater programs, youth groups, service activities, and more.
