We are Emily and Jonathan. The story of how we met is kind of funny. When Emily was in junior high, Jonathan came to visit Kansas for spring break with Emily’s sister and a friend. That weekend Emily ran around her house singing “You are my sunshine” at the top of her lungs because she thought no one was home and… there Jonathan was, 3 feet away. She ran out crying. She was so embarrassed about that for YEARS. Then ten years later, we ran into each other a second time after Emily moved to California, and we have been inseparable and goofy and eccentric together ever since.

We’ve been married since 2015. We wish in our hearts to share our life with a child, but medical limitations prevent pregnancy. Some of our friends have adopted and shared their wonderful stories with us which inspired us in this direction.

We live in a peaceful town in Southern California near the mountains. Every day we love to look outside our window and see the mountains and parrots that love to hang out in the trees nearby. We love to drink tea on the balcony which we jokingly call “the veranda” because it sounds fancier. We love to watch science fiction shows and British comedy. We have inside jokes like our loving “sloth hug” and “penguin hug” and family traditions like special Christmas pajamas. We can’t wait to share these with your child, enjoying the silly times and being there with one another for serious times.

We both enjoy art & technology and use those interests in our careers, Jonathan in software testing and Emily in video production & makeup. As we both loved being creative in our childhood, we’re excited to see your child’s interests and will always have art supplies available for self-expression.

We admire your strength as you explore what’s best for your child. Should you choose us to parent, we hope that we can get to know you and that your child may get to know you as they grow older, too. We are very open to those possibilities if you are, too.
