Hello, we are Joel & Hermann from the San Francisco Bay Area. We met nine years ago and from the beginning we wanted to start a family. Hermann is from Germany. Joel is from Virginia and speaks Spanish. We will be first-time parents in our early 30s and both be stay-at-home dads at first. We are excited about open adoption, as one of our best friends was openly adopted and has had a great relationship with her birth family.
We admire your decision to consider open adoption.
