State we live in: Colorado

dear expectant mother

We cannot even begin to understand the difficulties you must be going through during this journey, and we respect and admire you so much for your bravery and selflessness. We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking the time to look at our profile and considering us as future parents for your baby. Nothing we do will ever be enough to show you how much your choice means to us, but we will spend our whole lives trying to show you by raising your child with an endless supply of our love. We will always respect your decisions for however much involvement you want to have in your baby’s life, and we will be here to support you throughout this process.

We promise we will cherish and love your baby unconditionally, every second of every day. We’ll teach him or her to love endlessly, to be kind, and to always consider other people’s perspectives. We will support your child with whatever activities he or she takes an interest in and will teach him or her about dedication, hard work, and perseverance. We will do everything in our power to keep your child safe and secure, providing lots of laughs and hugs along the way. We will always provide everything and anything your baby might need. Most of all, though, we will teach your baby how important you are and the sacrifice you made to allow us to have a family. Thank you for considering us!

We promise we will cherish and love your baby unconditionally, every second of every day.

About Us

We are funny goofballs and always try to make each other laugh. Teresa is warm and kind, and people feel comfortable around her. Ashley is quieter but absolutely hysterical! We call Ashley “the namer of things” as she’s always giving out “true” names (like our cat’s spirit name being “Kahuna Chunk”). We both work in healthcare and love helping our patients. We enjoy hiking and Spartan races, and you’ll find us outdoors most weekends. We hope to travel to all the national parks with our future kids! We love coming home to our three fur babies and turtle to snuggle. (L’il Turtley is less snuggled than given attention.) Teresa loves board games and Harry Potter. She plans on enlisting future children into game nights. Ashley adores the Denver Broncos and wants to instill a “proper” love of football into our future kids (i.e., being Denver Broncos fans).

Our Home & Pets

We live in central Colorado near the mountains, in a two-story, two-bedroom, two-bathroom home. We are a few blocks from a beautiful park and disc golf course. Our school district is fabulous, and we are close to all the schools. We have a cozy loft where we relax in the evenings. L’il Turtley is 15 years old and overlooks our living room from his tank. Rhubarb is a two-year-old, rambunctious corgi/terrier mix who loves a good scruffle and her walks. Midnight is a 15-year-old affenpinscher/pomeranian mix, who is every bit a spoiled princess. Ollivander is a five-year old tabby, who is probably the sweetest cat you’ll ever meet despite some occasional mischief.

Our Extended Family

Our families mean everything to us! Weekends are always spent with Ashley’s mom, sister, and often her aunt, hiking, shopping, or just relaxing. Sometimes all of us get together, including Teresa’s mom and sister, for a fun cookout or board games. Teresa had an older sister who passed away at 33. Teresa’s dad lost his fight with multiple myeloma in 2017. Ashley has an older brother we don’t see quite as often. Ashley’s dad passed away in 2020. Despite our dads being gone, we keep them alive in our lives everyday by honoring their memories.

Our extended families are quite large! Ashley has a total of 19 aunts and uncles, and Teresa has seven aunts and uncles, not including spouses. Ashley has lost track of her cousin count, and Teresa has a total of 18 first cousins. Ashley is from the Tigua Native American tribe, and there is a family Fiesta each year. We also have family reunions with Ashley’s mom’s side of the family, where we enjoy pool time and volleyball! We typically see Teresa’s extended family once every year or so at family occasions like weddings or we’ll see individual parts of her extended family on vacation.

What Led Us To Adoption

We always knew we wanted to raise a family together, but we were never sure exactly how we wanted to have our children. We discussed doing in vitro fertilization, but Teresa has some uterine and endometrial issues that made us nervous about proceeding with that route. At the same time, we really struggled with the idea of IVF when we’ve always loved the idea of growing our family through adoption. So we decided to take the step forward with adoption, and we’re so excited to be here!
