We are Scott and Katie, in our mid 30’s and are from San Anselmo, which is located in Marin County, California. Marin County is just right over the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco. San Anselmo is a wonderful family oriented community, where Katie grew up. Scott also grew up in Marin County, just a few miles away in Greenbrae. Both our families still live in the area (even in the same houses we grew up in), as do many of our extended family members and long time friends. Not only are there two great parks within walking distance of our home, but also our school district has won several distinguished school awards and has outstanding ratings.
We are really excited to create a family and very grateful that there is a way for us to accomplish this through open adoption. Though the process of adoption is new to us, the thought of parenting is not. We both come from loving and nurturing families and cannot wait to start our own family where Katie can be a full time stay-at-home mom!
We know this is a complicated decision for you and we really appreciate that you are taking the time to read our letter.
