Dear Birth Parent,
We are a family of three, excited to grow our family through adoption! We have always wanted two children and would love the opportunity to add more joy to our family. After many years of secondary infertility and multiple miscarriages, we are ready to add another child to our family through adoption. We would love to be by your child's side, showing them the world, supporting them as they grow and encouraging them as they try new things! Thank you for taking the time to learn about our active and loving family.
We met after college and have been married for almost 10 years now! We are always up for an adventure and our calm and patient demeanor helps us integrate into and solve any situation. We value faith, family, friends, education and life experiences. We are financially stable, love to spend time outside, and always make time to devote to each other, our son, and family.
We are excited to teach your baby how to love learning by taking him/her to children's museums, libraries, and kid concerts. We are excited to take them to the sand, snow, and water while exploring all that nature has to offer. We look forward to sharing our family's love for hiking with them and showing them the world.
Marty is kind, driven and an expert Yahtzee player. He gets along with everyone, is the best motivator, and can be the life of any party with his exceptional dance moves and contagious smile. He loves snowboarding and is up early on Saturdays to hit the slopes, is passionate about his basketball and football teams and enjoys talking to his dad, mom, and grandpa. He is an excellent dad and is always willing to spend hours building Legos, reading on the couch or perfecting our son’s golf swing. He is an avid golfer and loves to play exquisite golf courses with friends. He is excited to share his love of the game with our next child as well!
Most mornings you will find Christina in the kitchen putting healthy ingredients, like fruit and nuts, into waffles or muffins. She loves being a mother and is passionate about teaching children how to communicate. She loves to run half marathons with friends and she is looking forward to pushing our next child in a stroller while she trains. She is very considerate of others and always looks for the good in everything. Planning fun, family adventures is high on her priority list as she loves to make others happy. She is already planning to teach our next child how to use sign language!
Our Son, AJ & Our Extended Family
AJ is an expert lego builder and loves all things construction-related. He also enjoys the snow and will wake up early to play in it. He has a smile that lights up the room and brings joy to everyone he meets. He loves shaking everyone’s hand at church and Facetiming his grandparents. AJ is so excited to be a big brother and has been praying for a sibling for years now.
Each of our parents have both been married for almost 40 years and have instilled in each of us the values of God and family. We are very close with our parents and visit them frequently. Marty has one brother, who is married with 4 boys. AJ loves to play and vacation with his cousins. Christina has a brother that lives in Japan and adventures around the world.
Our Home and Community in Nevada
We love our community! There are a lot of active families involved in sports, school and fun activities. We play Bingo and Trivia monthly with friends and meet them at the park, pool or golf course.
Our home is situated in the mountains with a hill in the backyard that gives us a spectacular view of the city. Our backyard has a putting green, horseshoe pit/kid "construction site" and hydroponic garden to grow herbs, kale, and broccoli. Inside we have an open kitchen, a cozy living room, and a dining room. Your child's room will be right next to AJ's room with views of the backyard. We are excited to personalize their room!
We promise to love your child with all of our hearts and teach them about God’s love. We will give them the opportunities to fulfill their hopes and dreams with guidance and support from us. We promise to take them to the sands of Mexico, hiking to our local lake, flying in a plane and so much more. We will be there for them through all the steps of life. We promise to teach them about you and foster a relationship with you, with letters, pictures, and visits according to your comfort level.
Thank you so much for taking the time to learn more about our family. We are looking forward to sharing our family’s love, laughter, and adventure with your child.
