Tara, Rick and Brandon’s Adoption Profile
Hello. We are Tara, Rick and Brandon. Thank you for taking the time to look at our adoption profile. We realize you may be entering a difficult time in your life as you consider an adoption plan for your child. We hope we can express in these few pages how excited we are to adopt again and how much love, joy and room we have in our hearts for a child.
Tara about Rick
Rick is a wonderful father and husband who enjoys spending time with his family. He has a great sense of humor and always keeps us laughing. He has a positive attitude towards everything and is always upbeat. Rick enjoys being outdoors and loves spending time playing with Brandon. Some of his hobbies include ice hockey and TaeKwon-Do. Rick works for the railroad and enjoys his job very much. When not at work, he enjoys doing projects around the house and is actually quite good at it. I know he is excited about adopting again because he is always talking about how much fun it will be to share everything he enjoys with another child.
Rick about Tara
Tara is truly an amazing person. She is one of the most generous and unselfish people I have ever met. She loves cooking, baking and gardening. She also loves to volunteer at school, helping out in Brandon’s class whenever she can. I always knew Tara would be an amazing mother – watching her with our son Brandon just confirms that. Tara is always there for him, whether it is taking care of a cut, reading a bedtime story, or just snuggling up on the couch with Brandon for movie night. Tara has been an office manager at a doctor’s office for over twenty years and has a very flexible work schedule, which will allow her plenty of time at home once we adopt again. I love to see how Tara’s eyes light up every time we talk about our adoption plans.
Brandon is your typical 7-year-old boy who always wakes up smiling. He is an excellent student who loves going to school. He loves to play sports, including anything from baseball to ice hockey. He also loves to go camping. He is very excited about becoming a big brother and has already started putting some of his toys away for his new brother or sister to play with.
We have been married for over twenty years and are truly each other’s best friends. We both love being parents, love the home we have built together, and we have room for more! We live in upstate New York on a quiet country road. Our home has a nice backyard, which has plenty of room for fun activities – from baseball games to hide-and-seek. We live close to the local schools, playgrounds, and parks.
We are very fortunate that most of our family lives close by. We get together often for family dinners and cookouts – one of our favorite dinners being Rick’s mother’s homemade pizza and fried dough. Rick’s sister lives in Florida and we always look forward to our visits there, which sometimes include a fun trip to Disney.
Thank you for taking the time to read about us – we hope that our adoption profile gives you an idea of who we are. We can assure you that if we have the honor of being chosen as adoptive parents to your baby, he or she will have a lifetime full of laughter and happiness and will be loved unconditionally. We would be honored to speak with you further about what is in your heart and what your hope is for you and your child.
We welcome you to contact us through Friends in Adoption, anytime!
