A Letter from Shannon & Syreeta
Hello from the Sunshine State! We are grateful for this chance to be considered as the family for your child. We are a patient and caring couple who can’t wait to be first time parents! We dream of one day having a child with us as we gather with family for the holidays or take a drive along the beautiful California coast. We can’t wait to share fun moments as a mom and dad! People say we are easy to talk to, so when you’re ready, we’d love to learn more about you.
How we met, as told by Syreeta: We’ve been together for over seven years. My sister and her boyfriend introduced us through a casual phone conversation. We got to know each other more over the years and one day finally decided to go on a date. I’m so thankful our first date was the start of our forever!
Why we chose adoption: We have hoped to become parents for many years and have not been able to conceive. After praying about our situation and our desire to raise a child, we feel sure this is the path we’re meant to be on. We’re excited to adopt our first child! on this path.
Syreeta enjoys cake decorating, family time, and sports. She is so nurturing and has always had mother-like instincts. Our nieces and nephews treat her with the upmost respect and they know they can come to her for anything. Syreeta does everything with integrity. What I love about her the most is her patience and faith in God.
Shannon enjoys time with my family, sports, and reading. He would be an amazing father because he has so many great qualities to share! He is so dedicated and loyal to anyone he comes in contact with. His energy is infectious! The amount of love he has for family and friends is unheard of and does not go unnoticed.
We live in Northern California where the weather is amazing. We have a beautiful three-bedroom home with a front and backyard that’s gated. Our community is very diverse and there are many cultures that we are exposed to. We enjoy the variety of walking trails and parks right in our neighborhood. Many of our neighbors already have children. It’s a great place to raise a family!
We both come from tight-knit families. We enjoy traveling to see everyone whenever we can, especially for the holidays. They like to visit us, too! We have nine nieces and nephews who are a lot of fun. We have a few close friends who have been in the family for years on both sides. We get together for birthdays and dinners frequently.
Our hearts are with you as you choose the best option for you and your little one. And,
if you choose, we would be honored to be part of this journey with you.
We promise to…
• Always be open and honest with who they are and how we became a family.
• Teach them about our faith and the love that God has for all of us.
• Stress the importance of education and how imperative it is.
• Teach the ways of the world, values, and responsibility.
We promise to include you in our family’ s story, if you’re comfortable, and would be
happy to share ongoing contact. To learn more or set up a time to talk, just ask Lifetime about us: call or text Lifetime at 1.800.923.6784.
With love, Shannon & Syreeta
