Hello, we are Kathleen and Tom reaching out to you, sharing our hopes to grow our family. Kathleen has never been able to be pregnant, but has always wanted to be a mom since she can remember. Her friends would tell you that they remember her talking about wanting to adopt since she was a young teenager. Tom is an engineer, and Kathleen is a social worker, and we are happily married soulmates. We met and fell in love 5 years ago and we focus on Live, Laugh, Love as our family motto. Before settling down in Richmond, Kathleen spent many years in New York City, and Tom grew up on a family farm. We are a great combination of city smarts, and hard work ethics of farm life, and we are very excited for the opportunity to share our life experiences as adoptive parents. Tom is one of six kids and is also the proud and loving father of Chelsea, who is 12 years old. Chelsea lives with us part-time and she loves to dance, make jokes, ride her bike, and is very excited to become a big sister! We hope that you will consider us as a family where your baby will be deeply loved and cared for. We would be glad to speak with you and answer any and all questions you might have. If you would like to learn more about us, please contact our social worker Ebony Mack at (804) 354-1881.
We know this note is a tiny step in the lifelong commitment that we want to share with a child and his/her birth parents. We are hoping to be parents again and look forward to talking to you or meeting you if you would like to learn more about us.
We are Nick, Emily, Gray and Jack . Here is a little about us. Nick and I met through friends in 2001. We have been inseparable ever since. Our love is strong and adding Gray and Jack to our family has meant the world to us. We know our family is not complete yet and I am not able to have any more children.
We enjoy doing things together. We all like taking walks around the neighborhood, going swimming in the community pool, going away for the weekend to the lake, going to sporting events and just playing together. Our family has so much love to give and we are waiting with open arms to complete our family.
We are committed to an open adoption and would like to know the type of contact you would like. We feel you would be a part of our family too. We can’t wait to begin this journey and embrace a life that matters. Please contact us through our social worker Rebecca Ricardo at C2Adopt (804) 354-1881.
Hello! We are Chrissy, Craig, and Rosco (miniature Australian Shepherd mix). Chrissy and I have been happily married for over four years and together for almost nine. We recently purchased our first home in the Woodlake community in Midlothian, and are excited to begin growing our family through adoption. We come from well-grounded, working class families and were raised to appreciate the good times and find humor even in the worst situations. We try to accept life on life’s terms and the mood around our house is usually pretty light...we like to laugh a lot. Chrissy works for Dun & Bradstreet, a data analytics company in Northern Virginia and works from home two to three days a week and I am an archaeologist at Longwood University. Rosco is still unemployed. We share a love of life and feel we have so much love to give! Thank you for taking the time to read through our profile and if you would like to find out more information about us, please contact our social worker Rebecca Ricardo at (804) 354-1881.
Hello! We’re Hope and Ron! We recently celebrated our thirteenth wedding anniversary, but it only feels like yesterday that we said “I do”. We’re best friends and we’re eager and excited to expand our family! We purchased our home three years ago and can’t wait to hear the pitter patter of little feet running through our home. Each of us come from small towns where everyone knows everyone. Our families are loving and hard-working individuals who taught us to be the same way and they’re excited and supportive of our journey to expand our family. We’ve been fortunate to have the opportunity to travel the world, to cities both big and small; taking with us stories and knowledge of various cultures. We’re committed to health and fitness which keeps us both active and involved in tons of fun activities. Above all, our favorite thing to do is laugh! We can’t wait to meet you and help you get to know us better. Until then, if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call our social worker Alicia Bugauisan at
Hey! I’m Britni, I’m 29 and I live in a quaint family neighborbood right outside of Richmond, Virginia. I have three small dogs; Cocoa (chihuahua), Cola (dachshund) and Lucy (beagle). For as long as I can remember I have always wanted to build a family through adoption. After a bit of research and a lot of prayer, I feel this is the perfect time to begin the journey. The group of friends and family that I have been blessed with is phenomenal. They are all so eager to support and love me through this process. Currently, I work as a Homeless Education Specialist with a local school district serving students and their families experiencing homelessness. I have been fortunate enough to work in the homeless services field for about four and a half years with a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Counseling. Through my work I have gained so many important relationships with community members that have turned into true friendships. Some of my favorite things to do are travel, going to concerts, creating memories with my friends and family, swimming, trying new foods, exercising, watching football (go Redskins!), exploring new adventures, continuing annual family traditions and being an active part of my community. I appreciate your time. For more information about my, please contact my social worker, Rebecca Ricardo at (804) 354-1881.

Hello, my name is Perry and I am looking to adopt. Currently my family consists of my two pups and myself; however, I am from a large family consisting of mom, dad, two brothers, sister-in-law, nieces, numerous aunts/uncles and more cousins that I could ever count. Growing up my family played an integral part of what made me the person I am today. To this day my family works, travels and plays together still. I look forward to growing my own family and having the child/children grow in a similar family setting to that of my own.
