Hello! We are Albert-Jan & Stephan from the Netherlands! First, and most importantly, we want to say thank you! Thank you for taking the time to get to know us, thank you for considering us as parents, and maybe most of all, thank you for making this difficult decision to give someone else the family they never thought they could have. We hope our profile will give you an idea about who we are as prospective parents.
We live in the Netherlands, a small country in Europe. We have chosen to adopt from the U.S. because Dutch domestic adoption is rare. Our hearts go out to the great openness of the U.S. adoption process, because we want your child to know the story of his/her birth and understand your selfless decision in considering adoption. As a birth parent, you will always play a special part in your child’s life to the degree that you are comfortable with.
