dear expectant mother

Dear Expectant Mother,

We know you are going through a challenging time in your life, and during that time you’re here, taking the time to look over our profile and consider trusting us with this great responsibility. For that we are so grateful. We have long imagined ourselves with a home full of children’s laughter, toys, and drawings. We have often daydreamed of the mentoring moments we may have with them as they grow up, the smiles we may share with them, and the special traditions we will surely develop together. But it isn’t a journey we could take without you. Just for being here, you already hold a special place in our hearts.

We hope to create a positive, healthy, loving environment to raise a child, and know that we will fill your baby’s life with happiness and caring. There will be more challenges ahead of us, to be certain, but we will face them together, and all grow stronger for it. We have both been supported by stable and constantly loving parents, taught to value our relationships and the other people in them, and we hope to live up to their examples. We know how important this decision is for you, how hard it must be to weigh the options. We want you to know how important it is to us too.

We hope to create a positive, healthy, loving environment to raise a child, and know that we will fill your baby’s life with happiness and caring.

-Liz & Colin

About Us

We are two peas in a geeky pod! We met through a mutual friend, who set us up on a blind date. To say it worked out pretty well would be an understatement! By day, Liz is an architect. She designs all kinds of buildings, currently working on projects ranging from affordable housing to laboratory space at the Air Force Academy. Colin is an aerospace engineer, who writes software to test satellites and leads a group of 10+ other engineers. By night, we enjoy video and tabletop games with friends. Liz has played every Halo game since the first, and Colin is a huge fan of exploration and RPG games like Elden Ring. On the weekends we can be found hiking, besting escape rooms, white water rafting if the season is right, or just relaxing at home while watching Critical Role and painting Warhammer 40K miniatures.

Our Home & Pets

Our home is on a quiet loop in the suburbs, with a fantastic view of the Colorado Front Range. There is a green space with play equipment on the loop, and neighborhood kids are often outside playing there. We’ve put sweat and love into the house over the course of a couple renovations we did ourselves on many weekends, and we think it’s finally just right for us to expand our family in. We intentionally chose a house in the highest rated school district in town, planning for the future. Living here with us, we have two cats. Zuko has the curliest tail and Baz purrs loudly at any sign of attention.

Our Extended Family

Colin is the eldest of 3 children, and his parents, brother, and Aunts all live in Colorado, while his sister just moved to Illinois and his other Aunts and Uncles are spread out from Texas to Michigan, and even to Ontario. Colin was actually born in Illinois, but moved around a couple times before settling down in Colorado about 20 years ago. With Colin’s family, we go to rocket launches, we have dinners, and we challenge ourselves with escape room games.

Liz is a middle child of 4, and while most of her immediate family lives back in Southern California where she grew up, her mother comes from the far off land of England which includes a large extended family of many Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins. With Liz’s family, we enjoy camping on the beach every 4th of July, nature walks, and long conversations.

While we don’t see family every week or even every month, we still consider ourselves close.

What Led Us To Adoption

We found out pretty early in our relationship that we would never be able to have children the normal way, though each of us were interested in having a family. We really want the whole parent experience, from birth through the rest of our lives. We took some time making sure we had a home ready for growth, and stable, successful careers. We are finally in the place where we think it is the right time to start a family, so we are eagerly embarking on this journey. We hope this isn’t our only adoption experience, just the first!
