Nice to “meet” you! We are a loving couple excited to build our family through adoption. We met a few years ago as friends, fell in love, and then married in 2019. We cannot wait to start this next chapter of our life together.
Community is deeply important to us. We gather our friends and loved ones as often as possible to cook, eat, play games, sing songs, dance, and enjoy the present moment. We share a passion for travel and look forward to showing a child the world, and seeing it anew through his or her eyes.
As a lesbian couple, we know that love and family take many forms and include a wide network of people. This is what brought us to adoption.
Thank you for considering us to parent your child. We understand that parenthood is a tremendous responsibility, and even more so when being entrusted to parent someone’s child. We have built a life based on mutual respect, acceptance and unconditional love. We hope this bio offers a glimpse into our world and the kind of family we hope to build.
