Adventurous couple in Seattle looking to start a family

Thank you for taking the time to check out our profile. We would provide a safe and caring home for your child, promising many experiences around the world, a focus on education and a extended tight-knit family to grow up in.

We would love to meet with you and are able to easily travel.

Here is some additional information about us...


We are a couple of ex-Texans living in Seattle who are looking forward to the awesome journey that parenting is sure to be. We’re both a bit nervous, but very much excited by the idea of raising a child, which will be our first. We hope to meet a great birthmother who can walk through this process together with us.

Cindy and Scott have both been looking forward to starting a family. After a few years of trying, we looked into other methods of having a child. Both us were drawn to adoption. With close friends who were both adopted and others that have adopted, we felt like adoption was a perfect fit to start our family.

I guess some history about the happy couple is in order…

As we mentioned, we are both from Houston, Texas and, in fact, went to high school together where Scott held out much of his senior year with a big crush on Cindy. Alas, it never came to fruition until much later when they were reacquainted in Seattle while Cindy was on a layover for her job as a flight attendant. He picked her up in his 40 year old Volvo station wagon wearing shorts and a t-shirt (it was the 4th of July!), while she was dressed in a beautiful cocktail dress. Over the next 6 years of dating and 6 years of marriage, we’ve managed to meet somewhere in the middle.

We both have a love of travel, which is made easier with the flight benefits we have through Cindy’s work as a flight attendant (Scott works as a web developer for a marketing agency). We have managed to take (sometimes fairly short) trips to Ghana, China, Australia, India, Costa Rica and Indonesia and are looking very forward to travelling with our child and experiencing the world with him or her.

We both love the Pacific Northwest where we’ve laid our roots. Camping, hiking, fishing, attending Seattle Sounders games and rolling down the hill in our backyard – these are some of the things we’re excited to share with our child.

Scott once ran a record label (unsuccessful). Cindy has been known to quilt and even taught Scott how to sew recently. We tend to be very active and are excited to share these experiences as parents. Scott particularly looks forward to teaching them how to haggle the price down on a backgammon set in Turkey, while Cindy is already getting the pool table ready for lessons like she had from her father.

We are both very close to our families. Cindy’s twin sister lives practically down the street. Did I mention that we would love to welcome twins into our home? Cindy’s mother and step-father live in Henderson, Nevada. Scott has an older sister who lives with her family (again, twins!) in Fort Collins, CO near his parents. Our flight benefits help us visit often.

We’ve been reading and learning quite a lot about the experience of raising an adopted child and plan on telling them their adoption story as they grow to make sure they know how much you care for them We also hope to maintain a certain level of communication with you as the child grows up.

It’s difficult to really express how excited we are with this process, but we are also pretty overwhelmed as I’m sure you are as well. We can understand what a difficult decision this must be for you. Together, I think that we can make this a positive experience for all us. We would love to meet you and get to know you and your baby.

Who We Are

We originally met in High School in Houston, TX. Scott had a big crush on Cindy for most of the year, but things were not yet meant to be. Scott moved to Seattle shortly after graduating college and was reacquainted with around 2002. She was working as a flight attendant and lived in Detroit at the time. Cindy still works as a flight attendant which gives us terrific flight benefits which we try to use as much as possible. Scott works as a web developer in the digital marketing industry.

Cindy has an identical twin sister who also lives in Seattle while Scott has a sister living in Fort Collins, Colorado near their parents.

We enjoy attending Seattle Sounders matches, traveling(!!), the outdoors and loving our 2 dogs.

Adoption Diary

Tulips!  Tulips!  Tulips!!

Cindy and I had a great Easter.  It turned out to be the one nice, sunny, warm day in a season of cold and rainy ones.  Our friend, Stacey, met us and we rode our motorcycles to meet up with Cindy’s group of women riders.  They led us on a ride along the water to La Conner, WA where tulips are in full force this time of year.  Apparently everyone else within a couple hours of La Conner also went to this one farm because it was crowded.  Still nice to get out, ride some twisty roads, see some spring colors and hang out with the ladies of the Rainier Ravens.

Sad day for us today

Our beloved dog, Whiskey, finally got too sick to carry on.  It came on quickly which is in, some way, a blessing.  I (Scott) am also very happy that Cindy missed her flights this morning and was with me to make this difficult decision.

I started looking for a dog just before Cindy and I started dating.  I generally liked larger dogs and had remembered seeing this beautiful dog at a day care once a few years prior.  It was a German Shorthaired Pointer.  So I focused my energy on finding that breed.  I found Whiskey on Petfinder in 2002.  I had planned to name him Sparky until on the way home from the rescue agency, he threw up in my car.  He was so lethargic.  I didn’t know he was sick at the time.

We made it through that with flying colors and his energy just kicked into overdrive.  Luckily we lived across the street from a dog park where we sometimes would go twice a day.  Even that was not enough.  He would escape from our yard only to be found back at the dog park. 

His favorite thing to do was to play ball - especially on a beach.  Sadly, we didn’t get a chance to get him back to the beach this year before he passed. 

It is a very sad day here, but we are eternally grateful for the years we had with him and will treasure his memories forever.
