I Heart Adoption Profile
We met online 7 years ago, (Colin caught Cara’s eye because of his green, smiling eyes, and have been inseparable ever since.)We got married 2 years later. We are a fun-loving, happy, couple and now we’re ready to adopt. Colin works as a visual designer for a large telecommunications company, where he's lucky to have flexibility to work from home. Cara is back in school for her second bachelor's degree in dietetics/nutrition with the goal of working to teach children about nutrition and healthy eating. Her schedule is also flexible. We feel blessed that both of our career paths allow for work-life balance and let our child be the focus of our lives.
Colin About Cara
Cara is outgoing, creative, and always has a great outlook on life. She is one of the smartest people I have met. Every day I'm reminded how glad I am to have found the greatest person to be with. Cara has been waiting to be a mom since the day I first met her. She loves volunteering with kids. Cara always does the small things that make someone smile. She is sensitive, caring, and a great listener. Having been involved in performing arts her whole life I know cara is just craving to teach our child some of these skills she learned, and helping our child discover their own interests and talents.
Cara on Colin
Colin is the most caring, supportive man I have ever met. He is always making sure that I’m happy and fulfilled. I know that he will do the same for our child, offering the support and gentle guidance he or she will need to reach his/her goals. Colin is a great skier and can’t wait until our child is old enough to learn and go swooshing down the slopes with him!
We live in El Cerrito, CA a diverse community with many young families. Our home is on a hill with a yard large enough for a child to have space to run and play, lovely views of the SF bay, and is very close to several local parks. The city has good schools and lots of activities for children. It's not uncommon to see a lemonade stand on our street, and our small city offers movies at the park, a Fourth of July parade and a nice community pool. It is also close enough to San Francisco to enjoy all the things the big city has to offer as well.
