Heather & Jim

GREETING

Hello! We are Heather and Jim Harari from Pleasanton, California, in the San Francisco Bay Area. Thank you for taking time to get to know us and what we have to offer as fun and loving parents.

We admire and respect you for considering adoption and want to help fulfill your desire to find a caring family. Like you, we are strongly committed to assuring that everything we do is in the best interest of the baby. We look forward to connecting with you in a way that feels supportive and comfortable to you.  We are so excited about the prospect of being parents and thankful that Heather will be able to be a stay-at-home mom.

We are grateful that you are considering us to love and raise your child.

ABOUT US

We met on eHarmony in 2012 – this process sort of feels like eHarmony again! For our first date, Jim suggested we meet at the local yogurt shop. When Jim learned Heather was up for ditching the yogurt plan to watch the San Francisco Giants win their 2nd World Series, he knew she might be someone special!

We are similar and share the same values about life and desire to raise a family. We enjoy and love each other. After a trip to France and Greece in 2014, Jim popped the question and we were married shortly thereafter in a friend’s backyard! We have always known we wanted children and cannot wait to be parents. We look forward to providing a supportive and nurturing environment filled with love and laughter for our child. (Oh yeah – and changing lots of diapers too!)

Meet Jim (by Heather)

Jim is an honest fun-loving person. He’s been very successful in his professional career and now in his teaching career. He’s smart, generous, thoughtful, and supportive of everyone. I love his sense of humor. He makes me laugh and enjoys teasing me. He is well respected by his peers, friends, and the kids at the school. I am very proud, happy, and grateful to have him in my life. He is a strong role model and will be a wonderful father.

Jim’s first career after earning an engineering degree and a master’s degree in business was 20+ years in corporate sales management, where he rose to the VP level. However, he left to do something more important and is now a high school math teacher. “Mr. Harari” loves his job! He also coaches the soccer team which is the perfect outlet for his passions for kids and sports.

Meet Heather (by Jim)

Heather is so sweet and thoughtful. She makes everyone around her feel better with her positive attitude and genuine interest in people. I also love her willingness to try things – she has a fun sense of adventure. Despite her collecting and owning way too many antique sherbet bowls, I know she will be a terrific, dedicated mom to our child!

Heather has a Master’s of Arts degree in Communications and is a certified kitchen designer. She has a successful career as an International Marketing professional and works very hard. Heather is looking forward to being a full-time, stay-at-home mom!

OUR HOME

We live in a beautiful home in a quiet neighborhood of Pleasanton, which is 40 minutes east of San Francisco in Northern California. We have a lovely backyard and Jim is already mapping out fields for games and contemplating good places for hide and seek back there! Our child will experience many fun barbecues, birthday parties, and picnics with our friends and family throughout the years.

We have a number of neighbor kids on our block. There will be plenty of opportunities for our child to play outdoor sports, ride bikes, play at the local park, hike, and build lasting friendships with friends. We are just a few minutes away from the elementary school and will be walking our child to school every day.

INTERESTS/HOBBIES

We love to travel and explore and are excited to show our child lots of cool places!  Jim will be a great sports coach for our child and birthday party entertainer with his juggling skills.  Heather is looking forward to reading stories to our child from the day they are born and is eager to having a helper in the garden.  We have a seat on the back of Jim’s bicycle for our child and are geared-up for regular family rides!

Special people in our lives!

Our family and friends are very important to us. We are lucky enough to be very close to our families and have a wonderful support system of friends. They are so excited about our plans to adopt and cannot wait to welcome another child into their lives!

Heather’s immediate family is in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her parents and great aunt are ready to spoil our child with gifts and love, and to provide babysitting help. Heather’s older sister’s family lives in Georgia, and there are three nieces and a nephew ready to play with their new baby cousin.

Jim’s two brothers both have children and are excited he might join the ranks of the slightly sleep-deprived, but hugely loving dads!

With warm regards,
Heather & Jim
