Thank you so much for considering us worthy of being parents. However you came to this decision to adopt, know that we honor and respect your choice. Your bravery is without limits.

Your baby will be a part of a loving family that includes close friends and relatives near and far who can’t wait to be a part of their life. Our home is always filled with the sound of music, a sports game, or the pitter-patter of dogs looking for trouble. We spoil ourselves with books and music, and the thought of our little one poking through the bookshelves or the records to find a new story, or to discover a classic hip-hop or country record, makes us as excited as it does nervous for our tastes to be judged. We’ll teach your baby the value of respecting others, making the world a better place than you found it, the reward of a hard day’s work, and why the only boss they should ever listen to is Bruce Springsteen. Further and without question, we’ll support them in whoever they discover themselves to be as they learn and grow.

We live for a good adventure. Our idea of a vacation is filling a camper van with our favorite foods, a couple of guitars, and enough gas money to get us to a destination that we’ll figure out once we’re on the road. We’re not afraid of a long hike, and you’re more likely to find us at the locals’ favorite restaurant than at a fine dining establishment. We use atlases instead of iPhones and think getting lost is a stroke of luck. When we mean getting out of cell phone service, we mean it: the phones might as well be off. That’s how we have fun.

What sets us apart is that we will raise a child in both rural and urban settings, giving them a unique perspective on life. As an interracial couple, we have learned how to respect, share, and learn from each other and are excited to bring that same approach to a child. And, if we’re being honest, we’re coming to parenthood a little bit later than others. We’ve focused intensely on our careers where we have dedicated ourselves to working hard on behalf of those who most need help. We’ve reached an incredibly fortunate point in our lives that we can now choose how we live and are prioritizing growing our family as part of that decision. Introducing your baby into our family opens up so many possibilities for us to live life to its fullest and to give a child a life rooted in tradition, fun, and opportunity.

Colorado is a truly great place to raise a family, and we can’t wait to share this unique place with your baby. Taking your baby along with us on any of these adventures is constant motivation for us to find new places to return to with them. We’re singularly dedicated to giving them a childhood they can look back on with fond memories and wonder.

We know that none of the above is possible without you and that we can’t wait to meet you. We’re honored to even be considered by you.
