Dear Expectant Mother,
By taking a moment to read this, you are giving us an opportunity to appeal to you to become parents to your child. We are joyful simply by knowing you are reading this, in what may be the hardest decision of your life.
Our promise to you is to love your child with all of our hearts until the day we die. We are seeking a lifetime of love, where we can walk with your child as they experience the ups and downs of a life that will not be perfect or free from sadness or heartbreak. With your baby as part of our lives, we will bring them into communities that include people from all backgrounds, occupations, and interests, so that no matter what their interests may be, we will be able to help them along their path with introductions. Will they grow up wanting to be a rocket scientist? A doctor? A politician? A broadway performer? A professor? A plumber? An entrepreneur? A farmer? We have it covered, because those are the people who are part of our “family” already.
We want to raise your child to be the best at whatever they want to be so that they can have a lifetime full of happy memories and wake up living their best life possible.
Brent is an attorney with his own firm that works with families for estate planning, and Justin is a risk consultant for an international accounting firm. Our personalities balance each other well, with Justin being amazing with one-on-one interactions while Brent has the personality to captivate a room full of people. We value the time spent with friends and family but also getting out to travel, attending cultural events, and supporting our local college athletics. Since finding each other eight years ago, our lives have become so intertwined that we do virtually everything together, except our day jobs. From errand-running to traveling, to playing board or card games with friends, we enjoy doing it most when we can do it together.
We live in a suburb of Seattle, and it has everything we could dream of for a child: the neighborhood is filled with homes and lots of kids, and it is a very diverse area. The home itself is spacious with room to play, but also room to make their own. We have a family room with open floor space specifically for the early years, when we will be on the floor playing. Our street ends in a cul-du-sac, so playing with neighbors or learning how to ride a bike can be done in a safe area. Our yard is fenced and grassed, which is perfect for games of tag, badminton, or catch. We have one amazing dog who loves people and loves to play with anyone who is willing, including young children that like to play with her very soft ears.
Our Extended Family
Our extended family consists of the people we are related to and those whom we choose as family. Everyone in our family is excited about our adoption and cannot wait to welcome the newest member to the fold.
A fundamental core in our family is rooted in constant learning. We have long been followers of college athletics to the point where, in many years, our winter schedule will include traveling to a College Bowl Game. We’ve also spent the holidays making annual trips with family to Disneyland. Traveling is our way of continually learning and experiencing new things. Over the past year, we traveled with family to Phoenix and Tucson, where we went to a football game, the zoo, a cavern, and then an Air & Space Museum. On a later trip to Southern California, we went to Disneyland and then saw a one-woman play, went to two museums, and just walked along the beach and played in the surf. No matter where we go, we are always looking for ways to expand our horizons through new and fun experiences.
What Led Us To Adoption
When we first started talking about developing a deeper relationship and a future together, we were both on the same page from day one about wanting to bring our love to a larger family. We have both experienced so much that we want to pass along our joy and passion for life by passing our values of community, service, and passion onto another. We have had many friends who have adopted and watched as their lives transformed around the raising of their family. We know that we have the love to share to do the same thing.
