We are Lina and Chance, and we are so excited to begin this journey with you. We know we can never completely understand what you’re going through and the decisions you’re making, but we’ll be there to support you every step of the way. We want to get to know you and for you to have a relationship with your child if that is something you want. After all, a child can never have too many people in their life who love them!
We love road trips, live music, cooking, and hanging out with our families, friends, and pets. We met seven years ago in Oregon. Our first date was meant to be just afternoon coffee, but we were having such a good time that it turned into a 7-hour coffee/walk/dinner date. We have always had an ease with each other and just genuinely enjoy spending time together. We’ve been through a lot of big life changes together, including career changes, deaths in the family, adopting pets, and a cross-country move to a city we’d never been to before. These experiences have taught us a lot about communication, honesty, and compromise. We’ve become a really great team and now we’re ready to add a baby to that team!
We know you’re reading a lot of these letters and are probably feeling a bit overwhelmed (we know we are!). We hope our profile will give you a sense of who we are, what our life is like, and the kind of home your child will be raised in. Regardless of the details, please know that your child will be raised with love and patience, surrounded by family and friends. We will raise them to be kind to others and curious about the world around them. We will support their interests and encourage them to try new things. We will help them through difficult times and laugh with them in happy times. And we will always tell them about you and your decision that made us all a family.
