Steven & Charlene


My words cannot express how I feel writing this letter to you. We would like to extend our deepest gratitude for taking the time to read about us and for giving us consideration as a loving family for your child. My first thoughts are about you, and what it might be like for you to be considering placing your baby with an adoptive family. I cannot imagine how difficult that must be. I want you to know that, while we are very interested in adopting a baby girl, our first concern is for you and your wellbeing. We understand and are very sensitive to the fact that this is not an easy decision, and we want the best for you and your baby. We are here to support you in any way that we can.  We want to know all about you, your favorite food and color and your talents so we can be sure to look for all of that in your little girl and make sure we raise her to be as much like you as possible!

About Steven & Charlene

My name is Charlene. I was born and raised in Jamaica, West Indies until I was 12 years old. I’m from abi-racial background.Our family is very close and loving, nothing is more important than family.I’m Steven.I was born and raised in New York. I’ma dad with 3 amazing sons from my first marriage; Samuel, Gabriel, and Daniel. The most important role in my life is split into two compartments. Thefirst is being a father who listens to what his children have to say. I feel that being a father who is truly there for my children is the most important part of who I am and nothing makes me happier than spending time with them.

I am Charlene. I was born and raised in Jamaica West Indies until I was 12 years old. I’m from a biracial background. My mother is Jamaican and my father is White German. We were brought up that God is very important and I am practicing Seventh Day Adventist. I moved to Chicago Ill, where I lived until I moved to Los Angeles for college. I have stayed in Los Angeles and live here with my loving family which consists of my husband and my three step sons. I am a fashion stylist which means I shop and dress people. I love to play the piano, and go hiking with my husband and/or sons. What I love the most and is so dear to my heart is being a stepmom to 3 boys, who mean the world to me. Not having children of my own, my stepsons have taught me so much about being a mom. They are the light of my life. Having a baby daughter would be the joy to complete our family.
Hi, I am Steven. I was born and raised in New York. I’m a dad with 3 amazing sons from my first marriage; Samuel, Gabriel, and Daniel. The most
important role in my life is split into two compartments. The first is being a father who listens to what their sons have to say. I feel that being a dad who is there for my sons is paramount to who I am. I love spending time with them. The second important role is being a great husband. Being there for my wife to help and support her in all parts of her life is equally important to keeping our home a loving place. I moved to Los Angeles 16 years ago where I run my insurance business. I was brought up in the Jewish faith. I love to spend my time reading, fishing, and I try to be active in a lot of different sports. My sons and I are big sports fans, especially when it comes to basketball and football. I’ve always dreamed of having a baby girl and I can only pray that we would be blessed with this gift in our life.
My loving wife Charlene and I have been married for 4 years, and we met 6 year ago walking down the street near our homes. We have a compassionate, loving, kind relationship. We live in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood outside of Los Angeles about 20 minutes away from the beach. We have beautiful mountainous hiking trails all around us. We spend lots of time together as a family. Having 3 sons, 2 Maltese dogs, Sweetpea and Stolie are a blessing for us. We love to organize family activities and spending lots of time outdoors. Steven will be having a catch in the backyard or throwing the Frisbee around with whatever son is home at the time. We also like playing tennis, board games and we like to travel. Steven and I are always cooking. We are a family that likes to have family dinners as often as we can. So cooking is a big part of the evening activates in the house.

Charlene is from Jamaica and we tend to visit her brothers and cousins at least once per year in Ocho Rios. We love to socialize with our dear friends, especially during the holidays. We celebrate Christmas and Hanauka as my wife is Seventh Day Adventist a Christian and I’m Jewish. We respect both religions and share the same beliefs such as honesty, understanding and love. The boys love having a Christmas tree. We have such a large interracial family filled with so much love and kindness. Steven’s brother is also in an interracial marriage he is white and his wife is African American. They have three amazing children.

Steven is 6’2, tall with brown eyes and in athletic shape. He has an amazing smile and a warm and an outgoing personality. I’m 5’2 with curly brown hair, brown eyes and olive complexion.

When we think about the possibilities of having a baby girl our hearts are filled with so much excitement and love. We know we could provide her with a loving, healthy and stable environment which would be filled with a solid foundation and a bright future. Most importantly knowing how blessed we are to have her complete our life with 3 brothers and parents that we will cherish every moment together.

With best wishes,
