Hi! Thank you so much for taking the time to consider our profile and we are grateful that you have chosen to learn more about us. We can only imagine how much you must be going through at this time. We admire your strength and courage in considering adoption and we feel honored that you’re considering us to be part of your child’s life.
We are Maurice (people call me Mo) and Andrew, and have been together since 2007 after first meeting in Philadelphia. We got married in 2016, and we live in a family-friendly neighborhood outside of Philadelphia. We have a two-year-old son, Rhys, who we welcomed into our family through adoption and we can’t wait to see him become a big brother.
We are excited to welcome another child into our family. We both grew up in big families and it’s been a dream of ours to expand our family, and have our children play with his/her cousins and extended family.
We feel blessed to become parents for a second time, and it’s important for us that our children grow up proud of every part of who they are and their history. We promise to open our hearts and provide a child with unconditional love and support. We hope this book provides you with a sense of who we are, and the loving family we will welcome another child into.
Thank you for learning more about us. We appreciate it!
