Kate & Julian

Family Type: Traditional
State we live in: Washington

dear expectant mother

First and foremost, getting the opportunity to potentially meet you and hear your story is so important to us. We are in this together, and just the thought of you considering us to raise your baby is a true blessing! Both of us believe that in order to make the right decision for a child, you need to feel cared for and understood. We are here for you near or far.

There are a few things we want you to know: We are both in our early 30s, secure in our careers and finances, and, most importantly, supported by some of the most caring people in the world. We love to travel, and we want to continue that adventurous lifestyle with your baby. Seeing different parts of the world has been the greatest blessing and educator for us in our lives. Also, we love to hike and are excited to get a baby-carrier and take your baby on many different hikes. Our gentle Olde English Bulldogge, Kashius, will most likely be on hikes with us too. He loves children and babies, and he would love to be a protector and big brother to your baby.

We want to make a promise to you that we will do our very best to give your child the best life possible. We have all the faith in the world that all of us together would make a beautiful and loving team for your child.

Having the opportunity to raise your baby would bring those aspirations to fruition, and we would be forever grateful.

About Us

Almost eight and a half years ago, we met when we least expected it during our travels after college. We discovered we were twin souls sharing the same outlook on life. It was love at first sight, and we knew we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. For Julian, Kate’s passion for early childhood education and her free-spirited personality are what caught his attention. For Kate, Julian’s adventurous personality and his quick-witted humor sealed the deal. Our closest family and friends refer to us as “Team Awesome” because we really are an awesome team! Julian is a scientist with the U.S. Navy, and his job takes us to many different places around the world. Team Awesome would be honored to give your child the gift of adventure as well.

Our Home & Pets

Our town is considered one of the best places to live in Washington, and the schools are highly ranked! Our current home is set back from the road on a private cul-de-sac with about nine other families, and many of them have babies and young children your child could play with. We currently have a two-bedroom home providing your child with his or her own bedroom, a spacious loft for all of their toys, and a fenced-in backyard. We are positioned next to hiking trails and a paved community trail for stroller rides, and there is a small beach nearby. Our dog Kashius loves children and will love to be part of your baby’s life as they grow and play together.

Our Extended Family

We both share a strong bond with our families. Julian has one brother and a total of eleven cousins, so family gatherings are full of traditions and lots of excitement! Kate has a smaller family that is very tight knit, living within miles from one another. Kate has a sister close in age and two cousins whom she is very close to.

We hope to be able to take your baby to Julian’s home state of Ohio and then drive eight hours to Kate’s family in Wisconsin. We like to go to Ohio and Wisconsin two to three times every year. Both of our home states are ideal for boating, fishing, summer festivals, and large parks for picnics and hikes.

Our favorite memories in our home towns are during the holiday season: sledding, seeing the light displays, having a gift exchange with all of the cousins, or going to the movie theater together. These experiences are not just something we would be honored to do with your child but our family members vow to be a loving and strong support system for your child as well! Our families value adoption as much as we do.

What Led Us To Adoption

Adoption is part of our close circle of friends and family. Kate’s cousin was adopted from Colombia, Julian has a friend who was adopted, and one of our good friends has adopted multiple children as well. We have seen it work, and we believe in our hearts that love and proper support can conquer all! As very open-minded people with hearts of gold, adoption has naturally been our calling and a part of our family planning. Having the opportunity to raise your baby would bring those aspirations to fruition, and we would be forever grateful.
